Can anyone recommend me the best keyboard for gaymen. No price restriction but I'd like to keep it under $200 unless it's really worth it.
I prefer tenkeyless.
I could care less about backlighting.
Less click clack the better.

>> No.57788017

Cherry MX switches have been around since the 80s, so they have much better quality control compared to their competitors. Gateron does use higher quality contruction, but their qc is lacking compared to cherry. You can see this in their clicky switches which feel inconsistent. I'd say go for linear and tactile gaterons and clicky cherrys

Topre is a very smooth linear switch and nothing like blues. There is a tactile bump at the very top, but you have to try hard to feel it.

i'm not a reg of this thread but after owning an HBK (which i've used for maybe 2 weeks - too lazy to sell it), multiple cherry mx switches keyboards, i still prefer the feel of a chiclet keyboard for typing (and can achieve my fastest WPM speed on it). i think the only good thing about mechanical keyboard, for me now, are purely for a e s t h e t i c s.

They feel linear. The actual force charts showing the keypress of Topre is very flat.

>> No.57789793


>> No.57789811

Not him, but MX Browns have an awful combination of light resistance and a very faint tactile bump in comparison to all other switches with a tactile bump.

This, along with Cherry's somewhat scratchy switches makes them arguably their most uncomfortable to use.

Approx. $120, can wiggle it if it's a really good deal.


>preferred switch type
I've only ever used reds, willing to experiment with others. I don't game as much on my PC these days and for most of my time PC gaming I've used membrane keyboards. I'm probably going to be doing much more typing on my computer than gaming.

QWERTY international, please no weird Dvorak shit.

>form factor
100%, media buttons preferred, especially volume rollers and a mute button.

Not necessary, but nice. Preferred RGB if I'm not paying out the ass JUST for that functionality.

>Current keyboard

I've been really looking at the Filco Ninja Majestouch 2 and the Das Keyboard 4 Professional. My friend has been shilling Unicomp boards, and while I won't contest their quality I think that they're ugly and too big.

Is building a custom mechanical keyboard worth it? Almost everyone I see is some bare bones version that doesnt have F keys, or some small format.

Yeah I know. I'm thinking of using Matias QC, but then I'd have to get some nice keycaps, and the only nice keycaps that are around for alps style switches are keycaps salved from an AEK.

Given that this AEK II based build will finally be leaving my hands this weekend, I'd rather try a different aesthetic on my next build.

they're overpriced memes tbqh :^)

do you have any plans so far? like are you wanting to 3D print a case, design your own layout, keycaps, switches?

an ideal keyboard in my mind has as much function as it can in as little amount of space as possible.

evidently when GBs fall into redditor's hands they are a mess. if this was on massdrop it would be considerably cheaper.

the manufacturer is Signature Plastics, look out for that name, a lot of their keycaps are vintage inspired

3D printed case, either a layout worth copying, or my own. Some kind of interesting and unconventional design for the case (e.g. not just another hollow, multicolored block), mx-style switches since I don't want to do something with alps again right away.

currently I'm thinking of making something themed around the modern beige with Japanese legends, cyan and turquoise, though that may very well be subject to change as I'm just throwing ideas around for now.

Interesting, though I already have a 65%, I think I'd either want to go smaller or larger.

I played with the thought of doing a split keyboard, but I'm saving that up for later. I've got an idea for a split keyboard, but I don't want to approach that until I've nailed literally everything at least twice, I want that thing to be no less than perfect, so I'm laying it off for the moment.

Ey, got my keyboard in and all set up.

I asked for advice several threads ago, wanting a black fullsize with Gateron Browns and blue lighting. The suggestion was a chink keyboard with interchangeable switches, so I grabbed this thing and a box of Glorioius PC Gaming Race's Gateron Brown switches and got to work.

The switches only fit after crimping one of the pins, which is broader and flatter than the ones the board came with, so I had to do that 104 times. But eventually it got done, and I've got exactly the keyboard I was looking for now. Also the keycaps it came with are country fried shit and have that awful gamerchink font you find on every ultra-cheap mechanical keyboard, so those had to go. I wanted Vortex's PBT+POM set, but I couldn't find it in stock anywhere, so I settled for a Ducky set instead.

And that's my keyboard story for today.

I have used my HHKB keyboard for 3 years and the keycaps must have certainly worn but I don't have an issue with shine or them being smooth.
PBT lasts long enough for me, but I don't imagine it would last significantly longer on library computers because of their heavy use.
There was some guy on Reddit that wore down his keycaps significantly in 8 years who was a sys admin.
I recognize that PBT doesn't last forever.
>I have to wonder how many of you that seem to hate ABS have used high quality ABS key caps before.

I don't know what makes one ABS cap better than another but I've had cheapass key caps wear out in 3 months to the point you couldn't read the legends anymore. I've also had ABS caps that I used daily last well over a year and probably would last longer, I just wanted a change.

My parents had one of those membrane rubber dome Dell keyboards (I don't know the model, but it's pretty popular) but after 5+ years its legends didn't wear off.
There is a dent in the spacebar from where it has worn off and the keycaps are super shiny but I can't believe how resilient the legends are.
I think it is pad printing with a coating over them.
If I were to get thick PBT I would get blanks so the quality of legends would be irrelevant. I wouldn't get ABS because I prefer a textured key that doesn't feel oily.

I seen that last night. I need to know where I can get that. That is by far the best looking keyboard I have ever seen. I looked it up on google, but just found a bunch of dead ends. Can anyone give me any info about this thing?

That's kind of good news, but I also heard plate mounted is much more sturdy, don't know if it really makes a difference.

My IBM model M has a steel back plate and it feel much better then an M2 which doesn't. Maybe if you have some shit Chinese one that doesn't fit properly then it is an issue

do you really need two fn keys?

also I'd put home/end instead of print and del.
put del on fn+bs

Oh, never thought of that, sounds pretty good. Cheers anon

That space is actually really fucking comfy, the whole thing will have a low profile case so it'll not look like shit either.

Do I want cherry blues, gateron blue or gateron brown?

Are gat browns the same as cherry browns?

>> No.57803300

>cherry switches
>low profile
While there are low profile mechanical switches, no one mass produces enough of them to make them cheap for a viable build. The cheapest I can find are 0.69 per switch, but only if you buy 100, compared to cherry's style which can sell as cheap as 0.29

>Oh, never thought of that, sounds pretty good

If you want clicks, get cherry blues
If you don't want clicks, get gateron browns

gateron browns and cherry browns are similar, but gateron is smoother and more tactile

So, I'm still missing something. What are the switches holding on to if not to a metal/plastic plate? Is it just the prong stuck to the pbc?

>> No.57804489

Yes, switches are either just soldered onto a PCB or attached to a plate.

>> No.57804517

>just soldered onto a PCB

Isn't that really fragile? I could see myself fucking up some solder points of a pcb when typing.

>> No.57804554

That's why most keyboards use a plate.

>> No.57804555

It is. They're held by peongs that clip into the PCB, but it's still far more fragile than a plate mount. That's why even 30 bucks chinkboards come with plate-mounted switches.
