I like these keycaps every time you memepost them. I'd personally choose to have the dark ones have lighter lettering, though. I wish keycaps didn't cost more than my keyboard.

I would have preferred all white legends as well, but the purple is minimized with this set over the lighter variant, and seeing modifiers isn't as important with one-handed use.

Ostensibly it's a macro pad. But with only 4 buttons it's pretty pointless. You could just get a $40 numpad and bind macros to it if you really wanted.

If you want a quiet TKL why not try matias qc since they are even quieter then rubber domes while being more tactile then cherry.
They aren't as good as the old Alps switches they're based on, but they're certainly smoother and better then cherry. They have a higher actuation then other switches so if you don't want to fall for the Cherry MX™ speed© meme gaming switches then definitely try them out.

I'm still using a compaq rt235btw rubber dome keyboard, have been for years and years.

It's a "real keyboard" with arrows and a number pad and everything a keyboard should have (except perhaps "multimedia keys"?). When I see keyboards without any of that I just laugh. I don't care if it's mechanical if it doesn't actually have the all the keys a keyboard should have.

Why do people buy keyboards like that or even consider them?

Don't use special snowflake DVORAK crap and similar either.

Your "typing performance" doesn't fucking matter if it doesn't translate to anything outside of your fucking room. There's a real world out there. If you're gonna be a good typist, you might as well have use of it instead of fucking crippling yourself into some nerd fantasy. People do appreciate fast typers and there's money to be had in it.

>tell me how much money it actually takes to create a single keycap.

You're aware there's a large tooling fee just to start making keycaps right? So the price only comes down when you make a shitload of sets to essentially spread the initial cost over each set.

If you just emailed GMK and asked for a single custom keycap you'd be looking at several hundred dollars, if not over a kilobuck.

>> No.58408775

Probably pennies for the plastic and the electricity needed to make a single cap. Good thing the machinery is free along with the people who man the machines and everyone involved in every step along the way.

High pressue injection molding machines are expensive, easily $500k plus depending on the quality and size. Even small and "cheap" ones are $100k-$200k, that's why at my previous job we used a different method for molding seals.

Beyond that each keycap needs a mold machined, and it's common for it to take several molding attempts to get the pressure, heat, ect dialed in properly.

i wasn't into mechanical keyboards when this GB came out. being a huge Macross fan (not a great time to be one), running off keypuller.com's info that there's only 184 of these, and it's a complete set barely used, I definitely expected it to go this high.

Kind of surprised a single keycap can go for that much, especially one so hideous.

actually it was my wife who got it for me. she already got me a TKL Skull Squadron for Christmas because she kept pestering me about getting something kb-related. knowing she doesn't know squat about keyboards and afraid she'd get me something i would probably end up regifting, I gave her a rare prize I didn't think she could find.

she was staring at it on display last week and out of curiosity found the guy selling the full set. she loves to shop for rare things and gets a rush out of auctions, so she just went for it.

guess im buying her a Google Pixel now in return for the favor.
