Lolita spyder owner here.

There's one fault about this keyboard and I'm not sure if it's just mine or it's a matter of build quality.

The shift keys and space bar have a switch on the middle and a couple of stabilizers(?) on the sides which fit into the cherry-like cross inserts.

My left shift, however, if pressed on the left, tilts and makes the press harder than it should be. It all seems to fit perfectly, but it still tilts, as if the stabilizers are not synched.
Has anyone ever had a problem like this?

inb4 "cheap chink shit", I know about that. Just trying to come up with a solution.

Easily my favorite switch so far.

Next up would be Topre, mx clears and gateron black. And I've still got some other switches to try. But gateron clears, especially in combination with the TADA68, providing a very nice sound in combination with the very solid plate and case, and the thicc pbt keycaps.

That being said, I've still got some other switches to try out and also use other keyboards with different switches depending on what I'm doing. But the TADA68 has been getting the most use of all by a long stretch.

definitely isn't true.

i have the mk84 from mechanicalkeyboards with greetech brown switches, and they are noticeably scratchier/squeakier than any other brown switches i've used (i've tried a few cherry browns and kailh browns).

i actually have never noticed any scratchiness in cherry switches (i guess i'm less sensitive than other people), but the greetechs are absolutely awful. i can hear random scraping/squeaking when just typing normally. it isn't restricted to a few problem keys either as i can just hit any key a few times and it will eventually squeak at some point.

hmm the squeaking in that video is definitely pretty noticeably. i haven't heard squeaking like that in any of the boards with cherry switches that i have tried/owned.

not really relevant, but i have purchased and returned two different kbp boards in the past (v80 with clears, v60 with matias quiet click) for chattering issues so i'm somewhat biased against kbp boards in general.

that said, i was mostly responding to the "clones should be pretty much the same as cherry switches" statement, as in my experience the cheaper clones are definitely worse.

is there a cherry mx clear clone i could try for comparison? i've only tried clones for reds, browns, and blacks.

Yeah, I'll have to experiment some more, but getting tolerances down with the stem seems like it'll be a pain.

so you can get these done at wasdkeyboards but the result will be a shitty ABS keycap that will wear down after heavy use. maxkeyboards is the exact same thing, but they can do backlit keys as well. it's the easiest way to get custom keys, and likely the cheapest at $50

there's a company called varmilo that can do custom pbt dye-subbing which would be better than the wasdkeyboards stuff, but you actually have to email them for an inquiry, so i don't know anything about the price or process and what they can do

and there's a guy on reddit (yes yes i know, don't jump on me) that just tested out some custom pbt dyesubbing, and he says he will likely do custom orders in the future. so you can check that out

and i also know there's this one guy on etsy that does custom pbt stuff as well but it's very expensive

Excellent. Constructed well, though the soft touch materials weren't my favorite. The keycaps wore as expected, because they are ABS. However, this is the case with all ABS keycaps. Switch them to PBT and you'll really enjoy it.

not him, but the soft touch materials were on the extra keycaps that you get. You can just switch them out easily
Also the vast majority of keyboards use ABS plastics, so buying a new keyboard just because the keycaps get a yucky shine (pic related) is dumb thing to do. PBT keycap sets cost around 35-45 bucks, with some on massdrop going bellow 30 like: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/vortex-backlit-pbt-doubleshot-keycap-set

well they don't normally "wear out" to the point that you can't use them anymore; they just get shiny after use and people don't like that since it looks and feels kind of gross.

There is only one switch that fits your description. It is called matias quiet click. They are more tactile then anything cherry has to offer, and are even quieter then rubber domes. You can find them here if you are in the US:

https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/search.php?keyword=&brand=&switch=32&size=&led=&capmat=&capprint=&model=&availability=in_stock_pre&show_kb=off&show_kb=on&show_acc=off

there are still some black Friday coupons so you can check those out and get a small discount.

There were a couple other candidates in the race. On Black Friday Newegg had an Azio MGK-1 RGB on for 100 Canabucks. And a while back I was looking at paying $50 for a Chinese seven color board off of Aliexpress.

Ultimately I'm glad I passed on both. I don't really need the rainbow crap (my favorite color is green, conveniently, and it's the only color I would have used on an RGB board) and like the other anon said it would be an easy sell if I ever want to upgrade.

>30 dollars

Will stop at customs and I'll have to spit out about 20 more dollars. So, basically, 50 dollars for a fucking switch tester. I know it's probably worth, but for fuck sake, I'm europoor and still only own 1 budget chink keyboard. It hurts my wallet.

>europoor
Is this better? 20 Euros, free shipping within Europe but only 6 switch types (Cherry Blue, Red, Green, Black and Brown) plus a bonus Novatouch switch.

Thanks but I took another look at the other one. It reads 20 Euros for me, it might just go through customs. Now I'm tempted.

None of them have clears though, right?

The ebay one does have clears if you choose Set B. Set A only has Reds, Browns, Blacks and Blues from Cherry, Gateron and Greetech, plus a Razer Green.

I fucking hate poor people.

Not because they are poor, but because they waste more money in trying to be cheap.

They buy cheap shit, then more cheap shit, then finally realize they need the good stuff and in the end they spent more money.

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Please note that razor greens are shit.

Real cherry greens are best clicky switch hands down.
