Why arent modular keyboards a thing yet? I was going to get a Memeforce as my first mech, but then I discovered "CIY" keyboards, where you can easily swap switches without the hassle of soldering. I bought a Zhuque TKL on Amazon for $40 and it was an amazing deal for what I got. I swapped out the no-name china switches for some Zealios and PBT keys and I couldnt be happier. Theres also the Team Wolf CIY keyboard, but I havent tried that one.

I can confirm that the newest batch of Zealios (R4) dont have a wobble issue. I really doubt they wobbled this much though, the keycaps look loose.

"Up for sale is a Maltron 3D Ergonomic Keyboard with Cherry Brown switches and a L90 Maltron layout (WARNING: THIS IS NOT A QWERTY KEYBOARD). I purchased it direct from Maltron and, fair warning to all potential buyers, this keyboard is a piece of crap. The body is made from a really cheap, really thin plastic that will bend if you press down too hard. Each key's cutout looks like it was done by hand with an Exacto knife, so the keys aren't very straight (especially the ones in the middle, see image). Some of the cutouts were also cut too close so that the switches are either not pushed in completely, or will rub against the key next to it (in particular, the Right Ctrl key will rub against the Right Shift key, see image). The switches are pushed into the keyboard rather than mounted on a PCB, so they're easy to pull out, and each switch is soldered individually onto the controller PCB, causing a mess of wires. The 5 status lights are unlabeled and I don't know what each one is for, and the PCB for the USB port is held on with hot glue instead of screws. You can even see marks on the body where the hot glue was applied and warped the texture slightly, which they used as a lip so that the bottom panel of the keyboard doesn't sink into the body. The keyboard itself works properly, it's just really, really poorly constructed.

Frankly, I would have thrown this keyboard in the trash, but I paid over $600 for it, so I wanted to see if anybody was interested in it first. Don't say I didn't warn you though, but thank you for your interest all the same."

That's no excuse when we can build as good or better for far less today.

Hall effect keyboards cost over a thousand today's money and now we have that Acepad company in China selling new ones for $80.

[citation needed]

Sticking it in a metal case doesn't equate to build quality pertinent to its use as a keyboard. Likewise the use of twisted metal tabs for plate retention isn't impressive just because the model M used shitty plastic rivets. Most other switch types don't have need of such riveting in the first place so no comparison can be drawn at all.

I wouldn't call the hhkb an outstanding example of build quality.
It is solid for being mostly plastic but it's still very underwhelming the first time you take it in your hand after spending so much for it.

Topre fags by far

IBM's have lasted over 30 years and are still the best.

Both topre and cherry have also lasted over 30 years. Its nothing to be proud off. A lot of people seem to forget that buckling spring over membrane and cherry MX switches came out in the same year.

>> No.57948772

Topre isn't as old as capacttive buckling spring or membrane spring. Capacitive buckling spring was released 1981 and membranes were released 1985. Topre was more like late 90's. And who cares about cherry? They've always been inferior to Alps and Buckling springs

Way too much. The industrial SSK alone is over 1000.

First time topre switch started appearing in keyboards about was in 1986, but the first mass produced topre keyboard was in 1987. Besides the patent for topre switches was filed in 1984

Europe is pretty big place. I think Cooler Master and Ducky have some keyboards there that fit your description

>> No.57948912

Then it took an extremely long time to become somewhat relevant. As I said, Buckling springs are older. And how many people are using those old topres? Everyone using Buckling springs are using ones from the 80's and 90's. My point is they have lasted longer and aged better than topre.

Thats only in America tho. you can still get old Sony topre keyboards, but shipping them is a hassle

Shine 6 looks different, has RGB lighting, as well as that mouse pass through thing

>> No.57949385

Almost $800 I think. I got back some of it from refunds and selling stuff I didn't like.

>Most regrettable purchase?
Filco with browns. Not because it was a Filco, but because I didn't realize how shitty browns were coming from blues.

Honorable mention to Granite keycap set. Fuck DSA, and fuck overpriced keycaps hyped by ledditors.
