The HHKB 1 used an ABS case, but the Pro 2 uses a PBT case so it should yellow a lot less. Searching around shows that most HHKB Pro 2 users don't complain about yellowing, even after a few years of usage.

>> No.57964833

Generally, yellowing of ABS plastic depends on condition. You can easily find the same keyboard massively yellowed and not yellowed at all. He might have kept it in extreme conditions, for all we know.

...Is there any keyboard with a white plastic non-ABS case, anyway?

if he has a desk in front of a window, it's very easy to yellow it in 4 years.

Indeed - which is why keyboards kept in office environments (aka. typically) don't yellow anywhere near as much. We cannot treat an outlier as the rule.

Got my order of feelios+aristotles+zealencios in. The smoothness of feelios is no joke. Can also confirm that they don't wobble any more than my MX clears (or at least that it isn't noticeably more).

The stock aristotle housings are hot shit though. Transplanting them into MX housings makes a huge difference.

The zealencios are exactly what you'd expect. Dampening the upstroke of the switch is nice. Not nearly as mushy as I remember o-rings being. Also makes SA caps sound closer to the topre thock on my board at least.

>> No.57970882

Hi /mkg/ after a bit of lurking i have decided I will ask you all for advice with regards to the switches.

I have been thinking of buying a meme-chanical board for quite some time but I really cannot decide on the switch type that I want.
I have only every tried the cherry reds/ logitech orion-g and razer green switches. I didnt really like either of those and im looking for some reference information so i can decide which of those might be the best option so correct me if im wrong:

If i understand correctly, the logitech orion-g switches are somewhat like browns, but a bit less tactile.
The razer greens are just a lighter and quiter versions of mx blues?
Reds are just a simple linear gaymur switch.

Since I didnt like any of the above switches and I want something good for typing and casual gaming thats not too loud, am I right to assume that clears will be the best option for me?

>> No.57970936

>Hi /mkg/ after a bit of lurking i have decided I will ask you all for advice with regards to the switches.

>> No.57970951

people usually recommend mx browns as the best starting switch

cherry mx clears are basically mx browns except they require a greater force to activate the switch

if you are a "heavy typist" odds are you will constantly be bottoming out the browns, so clears would be a better choice

Short-throw switch used in compact-layout keyboards. It was previously thought to exist only in a 55cN weight; however, this assumption was based on measurements gathered or guessed at by users.

I got to try one converted for USB. They block keystrokes if you type too quickly, and I don't mean like a 2KRO keyboard might because you're holding several keys down. A beamspring board literally refuses to register any two keys pressed too closely together. Also the key stays pressed for a fraction of a second even after you let go of it so it's impossible to play most games on one.

It actually worked out pretty well. I am still considering a customized casing and haven't decided on the coloring yet. Also a few keys will be spray painted by me.

When it is finished I will post no pictures, because muh secrecy, but I really made the best keyboard imaginable with just a few tricks. It's mindblowing.

It's really really good and something that was never seen before.
For a reason, I guess.

However I am still facing a few typos here and there, this makes the overall experience a bit less good than it seems, as I cannot truly tell why these typos happen - I always proofread and still I see typos in my posts. Weird, but not that surprising, maybe I just need some more caffeine - not on the keyboard of course.

Thanks /mkg/, you were a great inspiration.

I think my question was not accurate. I mean, I have an estimation of how much Model Ms go for locally, I just wanted to know how by how much could I haggle the price down considering that the seller tells me he has no cable for it.

My other question was: (I know perfectly well what type of cables the Model M's used..) How easy would it be to take a random ps/2 cable from another keyboard, cut it in half, open up the Model M and solder the cable end to the board so that I don't have to get an SDL ended cable.

I know. It basically sucks, we don't even UK on board anymore, which sucks because english is the only second language I'm fluent in.

I had an iPhone 5 with a broken compass once.

Oh lawd

just buy one
Getting rid of the detachable cable would be a downgrade, but you could haggle the guy down to 60 bucks depending on the condition, or 40 if he doesn't know anything about it.

Do gamer brand mechanical keyboards work on gnu/linux? Are there brands I should avoid if I want it to work?

It was mostly because the site I was going to buy from was impossible to use.

I've probably been using GNU/Linux much longer than you, faggot . I just never spent more than 20 dollars on a keyboard before. I thought maybe someone here would have bought one and maybe had trouble so I can avoid those brands.

>> No.57984788

If you've been really using it for that long then you'd know the answer. I can tell you that it works on my machine
