Yo peeps, not a frequenter of this board, but I have a quick question.
I just found a deal for a G410 tenkeyless keyboard for like, $50. Seems like a decent deal, I think.

Naw, it's just once you start using high quality keyboards you don't ever want to go back. Keyboard quality has gone way down since the '80s, so you see a lot of pictures of old keyboards.

I'm an avid Type M user (IBM keyboard from the 80s and 90s) and won't use any keyboard that doesn't have good feedback and travel. My girlfriend hated my keyboard until hers broke and I lent her my spare - I had to order another spare because she won't give it back.

I've got three of 'em.

They get abused, and I do have issues with them sometimes (my desktop keyboard has started repeating the letter 'n' for some reason), but any time I have a real problem with 'em I send one in and they fix it for $35. Comes back clean and working. The most common problem I've had was with the shift keys sticking. Sometimes cleaning them fixes it, sometimes it doesn't.

One thing: open it up and move the wire so that it's not pinching, and wrap some electrical tape a few inches along the area where it comes out of the keyboard. The cords for the USB versions suck (but you can order replacements for not too much, and they're easy to replace).

the only difference between razer and kailh switches is the razer oens supposedly have razer quality assurance professionals at the kailh factory to help assure quality

how can you say this when they have different actuation points and resistance?

>> No.58013024

The only Chinese switch I have is an outemu blue. Compared to the cherry equivalent mx blue its louder and even more higher pitched, as well as being heavier to press. One of the keys makes this annoying squeak when you press it down, but this is a result of the poor quality control, which Razer could have fixed in their switches, but I don't really know if they did. I've also read online that people are reporting inconsistencies between the switches.

>> No.58013082

again, it doesn't even have close to same specifications as other chinese switches, so I don't see how that's relevant. the outemu blue is closer to cherry in the hard specs than it is to the razer switch.

If you want to buy a razer keyboard then go ahead. Its your money and I can't stop you. Now this style of switch has been around since 1985 and has come in wide range of varieties with different springs and metal leafs.

He's trying to explain that even though "Razer" switches have some slight differences in comparison to other chink switches, nearly all of them are victims to poor quality control, inconsistency and being overpriced. Razer falls in line with all of these problems.

About the only mechanical you'd be getting for $50AU is compact chinkshit. If you're really deadset on fullsize, you'll be paying at least $100, maybe as much as $150.
