Thoughts on cheap/no name keyboards?

I wanna buy a tenkeyless/60% but don't want to spend $100+ on one. My research has shown they either go cheap or expensive, there's no in between. (Mainly looking on Amazon)

>> No.58173989

>>58173965
Some of the cheap ones that incorporate Gateron switches are probably nicer to type on than the expensive ones with Cherry MX.
These can't be too bad, I assume.

You probably aren't going to be satisfied by buying cheap. This goes for most things in life.

That said, you can get TKL Corsair or Gateron keyboards for less than $100 on Amazon with plenty of wiggle room.

I have Ajazz ak33 which I bought from aliexpress for $30 or 35, don't, really remember. It was on sale anyway. Black zorro switche which are some chink clones.

Ajazz ak33 here. It's very nice. I had it for a few weeks now and I'm really happy with it. Very nice build quality at this price point. It's also my first mech ever. I don't know how long it will last though, probably not as long as non chink keyboards, since chinks have shitty QA.
Stock keycaps are pretty nice, no gaymer fonts and shit. Just normal keycaps, I have no plans of changing them personally.
One thing that sucks (besides strange keyboard layout) is that keyboard has no memory. For instance you can turn backlight off (or lower it) but after you stop powering keyboard and turn it back on it will go back to default setting - which is backlight on with brightest setting. Personally I just got used to backlight and have it on all time, doesn't hurt my eyes and it's just normal white light.

Is there anything wrong with this? Mostly for gaming. Mainly buying a new keyboard because while my membrane one now isn't bad, I have run into a few situations in Battlefield 1 where I'm hitting a certain key combination that locks it up. There are so many cheap mechanical keyboards now that I'm sure are pieces of shit compared to $100 or more ones, but it's at least got to be better than membrane, right?

http://a.co/hueuEQR

It has knockoff brown switches, a YouTube review says they actually feel like cheap Cherry MX Red. I've been eyeing that Tomoko one for a bit, but this one is $10 cheaper for a full size.

Open to suggestions but please try to suggest something $40 or under for a full size one. I was debating ditching a number pad to save desk space, but I still think I use it too much. $50 maybe if it's really that much better. Backlight is a plus but not a requirement, this one just happens to have them.

Hmm looking more into the ErgoDox keyboards

I'm not sure if I like the Gateron switches. It seems like the gateron blues are both louder than the cherry blues *and* more importantly, require a higher actuation force.

I have a keyboard with the MX Clears (55g) and I already basically can't type on it compared to my MX Blues (50g). It feels like I'm typing on old rubber domes for how hard they are to depress. And these Gateron Blues are supposed to be even higher (60g)?!

The only other tactile switch they offer are the Gateron Browns (55g); which would be the same as the Cherry MX Clears if these numbers are correct - and I definitely don't enjoy typing on those at all.

So ugh, what do I do? Do I try and buy an older ErgoDox that still had MX Blues, or what?

>> No.58178854

>>58178645
Actuation force only tells you so much about how heavy the switch is. Clears are only 55g after the tactile bump. At bottom out it's more like 90g. Just use this to look up force graphs:

Any rubber dome aficionados here?

We're a small group of individuals boldly going against the grain in striving for tactile perfection. We prefer the gentle, organic feedback of a rubber dome over the robotic, cold click of soulless mechanical keyboards. The feeling is gentle and intoxicating - like typing on clouds. And best of all? In comparison to mechanical switches, rubber domes are almost inaudible.

Keyboard manufacturers prefer selling mechanical keyboards because they're much more expensive. They line their pockets with the money of clueless consumers who are unaware or simply do not care for an alternative.

I hope there are like-minded individuals here. Perhaps we could have daily rubber dome keyboard threads where we can share photos and anecdotes about our devices. I used my keyboard to type today, how about you? It's important that we stick together, us, users of these particular type of input devices. We have much in common.

Never really had a problem with the size of it desu, it's pretty much just as wide as an F122/M122 Battleship. I have quite big arm rests on my chair which allow my arms to move over to my mouse and back to my keyboard while having something to rest on, perfectly comfortable.

Different use cases. One with switches and a form factor that's nice for gaming, something with a numpad (or just a discrete numpad) for doing CAD. Also keep one of them at work.
And just for the purpose of being able to switch keyboards to your liking depending on what you feel like using, simply because you can.

Yeah I have this one, I like it and the blue led is nice at night, the keys are pretty light and I have been hitting keys near the ones I want because of how little force it takes to press down the key.

Rubber dome boards were never anything more than a cheapshit replacement for real mechanical keyboards.

As the years went on companies didn't want to pay out hundreds (when you account for inflation) for a single board. A model F was the equivalent of $900 back when they were new. IBM beamsprings were considerably more expensive than that.

I've had a $20 BTC scissor keyboard for 8 years without a single problem, it's been rock solid until I've spilled the coffee. Now I'm on a chinese A4Tech KV-300H with scissors, you can shit on it all you want, but it looks okay and it doesn't go anywhere because it completely satisfies my needs, unlike 99% of rubberdomes (especially long stroke ones which are unbearable).

Worse than what? I assume you mean PBT dyesubs, but then nowadays there are POM/PBT doubleshots. If you mean ABS, they'll eventually shine up with use, whereas PBT won't.

PBT will shine slower than ABS, but it'll still shine.
My HHKB that's 2 years old seems to have a little shine but the keys still feel textured, which is most important to me.
