That seems like a good option. Either way, I won't spend more than 20 or 30 bucks to find out my favorite switch before investing on a >100$ keyboard.

When I'm sure of my favorite switch, I might even spend up to 200. I trust that a keyboard on this price bracket will last a long time, am I correct?

Hey guys, the "B" key on my zalman k500 acts weird. Sometimes it works and sometimes id doesnt. I already tried to blow with a can of compressed air thinking it might have some dust in the switch but no luck. It doesnt look like anything is bad on the pcb. Could it be a cold solder?

cheap chink keyboards from the 90s still work.

if anything, it's easier for a membrane keyboard to live long (although the cup rubbers become mushy) than a mech.

with all those mechanical parts, the risk of a switch giving up is almost sure within 10 years

Hi, about a year ago I bought a pretty decent keyboard ( Tt eSPORTS KB-PZR-KBBRUS-01 POSEIDON Z RGB Gaming Keyboard - Brown Switch Edition)
After a few months the fucking LED's started malfunctioning and about 3 weeks ago the keyboard buttons started to press them selves twice.
It said I had an 5 year warranty but this company is complete ass and wont process my RMA (its been two weeks)
So, im thinking about buying from a larger company, such as corsair
Its on sale for 130$ right now, worth it? http://www.corsair.com/en-us/strafe-rgb-mechanical-gaming-keyboard-cherry-mx-brown

>They have to have some good aspects.
Such as? The more expensive price? the increase in wobble? I don't think they're necessarily bad, and I enjoy using them, but when you can have something better for cheaper there's no reason to buy them.

The only thing I could think of is the convenience of not having to mod the switch, but if you're custom building a keyboard I don't know why that would be a problem anyway.

Let's look at the costs:
- 10 pack of x10 Cherry Clear switches = $50.00
- 100x Cherry MX 24K Gold Plated Springs = $19.00
- Free shipping (depends on location, and where you are ordering.)
Total: $69.00

- (Pre-Order) R4 Purple Zealios x100 = $100.00
- Shipping = $15 at least
Total: $115.00

Many keys are like the 2 key; they have a legend that does not match what the key does.
pic related is about the legends
It is possible in keyboard settings in Windows to change this so that shift+2 makes " but I prefer the ANSI layout.

When your computer restarts it will default to the ANSI (or whatever layout you were using previously) so if you delete the ANSI one it will make the Japanese one default.
You can add the ANSI one after deleting it and when your machine restarts so you can swap between the two layouts but the JIS/102 key layout will be default.

1. Yes.
2. Conscious choice. Like sand in Reds. If you want blue without the noise, clears are a good alternative. There is still a good amount of noise, however. If you want really quiet, you can go with Matias Quiet Clicks, or go linear with Reds. I am currently using an HHKB and have modded it with dental bands in the past and it was nearly silent.

so far, no. Though I've only given it three tries so far. I feel like it'd be easier to just 3D print a mold and to cast your keycaps instead since getting tolerances right with the inside of the stems hasn't worked out very well so far.

That being said, I'll try some more stuff once my ABS filament arrives tomorrow. I feel like it should be possible, at worst with some after-printing finishing on the stem.

Anyone here know much about/ever used a zowie celeritas keyboard?

Looking for a black board with cherry reds and this one is only $122AUD. Cheapest is a coolermaster for $109AUD but not sure on the quality of either board.

Previously had a filco majestouch w/ reds that wore out over the course of 2 years or so, and a leopold with browns that did the same, looking for red switches and prefer full format, tried TKL and don't like not having the numpad despite it fitting on my desk easier. Lights not necessary, I can touch type and don't game in the dark.

Current board is a ducky one TKL with cherry greens. Want to make the swap back to reds. This board is great for typing, but for gaming it's distracting and too stiff.

I'm in pretty much the same boat.

Budget: I'd like to go cheap since it's my first
Location: US
Type: Blue sounds alright to me, all I could really gather from the picture is that I'd prefer something from the tactile or clicky category, noise is no problem
Form: I'm looking for something with a numpad at least
Backlight: Doesn't matter, I won't rule something out for having light and I won't turn something down if it doesn't

MP keyboards are basically a $5 rubber dome keyboard, but they took out the membranes and replaced them with outemu switches.

I've used a model M for years, but I'd like to treat myself to something new and nice (and USB). I'm thinking about using WASDkeyboards to order something custom, does anyone have experience with them?

From my googling it looks like Cherry Green is most like the feel of a model M, can anyone attest to that?

>> No.57744821

>>57744483
cherry switches don't feel very much like buckling springs. the greens are probably the closest you will get, but it's not going to feel like your model m

the wasdkeyboards are pretty decent keyboards, but their keycaps aren't the greatest. you do get custom printing, but they're cheap ABS plastic that wears off quickly. if you're looking to get one of their keyboards, it's better to order a barebones board and get nicer caps from elsewhere

also if you just want a new keyboard that's similar to your current keyboard, why not get a new unicomp model m? they have usb and are fairly priced

>>57744483
the problem is that buckling springs are the only switch in witch the tactile and clicky feedback happen at the exact moment of actuation. No other switch does this, but if you want you can get really tactile and clicky switches like matias and greens. The other thing is that your model M has some of the best keycaps ever made on a modern keyboard. As for wasd, they use some really cheap printing and it wears out easily (pic related). If you like their looks then get a barebones one and replace the keycaps with something similar in quality to yours. Ideally thick PBT dye-sub would be the closest, but doubleshot ABS is fine

>> No.57745076

Unless your old caps had spikes on it, I doubt it matters that much. The switch is the important part.

Are you actually retarded?
The caps matter a hell of a lot, they're how you interface with the keyboard. Using the interface that's most comfortable for you is incredibly important, that's why car seats and steering wheels are adjustable and replaceable, why a lot of guns have replaceable grips, etc.

It's like you never even bargained at a market. Are you 12? Do you think you just have to swallow every price tag the corporations put in front of you? Develop your critical thinking. Instead of giving value to stuff you're literally accepting the value of others.

I pirate every media I consume, even if it's 99 cents otherwise.

The reality of mechs and caps is that this is a niche market and people are willing to pay for the price they ask.
You either agree or you don't, there's no bargaigning.
