Kind of a similar question but just Gateron vs Cherry in general.
When watching typing tests of gaterons on youtube, they seem like they have more "clack" but in a bad way, compared to "thock" of MX switches. That's when comparing the same type of switch on same type of keycap plastic.
Can anyone confirm this? I feel like they give off a cheap sound to them.
I want to get blacks but not sure whether to go MX or Gateron.

Hey guys, my 6 year old keyboard's keys are finally starting to give out so I guess it's time for an upgrade, would rather do it right this time than get buyer's remorse again.

1) looking to stay under $150 if possible
2) in USA
3) cherry I guess? I mostly use it for gaming (twitch shooters all the way to city sims) and spouting my opinion on a weeb imageboard. Don't know or have an opinion on most switches so I'm open to ideas.
5) my current form factor is 100%, but I'd be interested in trying 80% if I could get a better product at my pricepoint.
6) I like a backlight but it's not a dealbreaker one way or the other
7) currently using a very aged Razer Lycosa, it was alright but the backlight frequently went out on its own and I've since educated myself on how cheap Razer products are. Only reason I'm guessing it only lasted this long is because I take care of my shit. Would love something with a little more response if someone is familiar with the Lycosa.

Thanks for the help, just want to get a good product with my money.

Not that guy, but in my experience blue/clear are the best multi-purpose switch. Black's are hard to type on and reds are even worse.

>> No.58469480

rubber domes are tactile and have about 60g of force required to press them down. If you want no tactile feedback and a lighter switch then reds would be my suggestion, or blacks if you want something as heavy as a rubber dome. If you want a nice and tactile switch then clears would be the best choice. I prefer lots tactility in my keyboard so I went with blues. Greens are even heavier so you could go for those

>> No.58469495

Don't buy reds.

Blacks are the linear if you want that.

How does a HHKB work with that lack of modifier keys?

well you do pay a massive amount for the brand name, but otherwise it is not a bad keyboard. for a rubber dome. :^)

I bottom out on every single keystroke also. Fuck developing the muscle memory required to type like a dick.

it's a rubber dome? Then why is it in the mechanical thread?

>> No.58470509

It has a metal spring that acts as contact point. The rubber domes give the tactility.

New Thread!

It's a noncontact switch. The rubber cups are springs.

Well it is a rubber dome with sliders, making it semi mechanical. Topre are very smooth, you could try a btc dome with slider keyboard, like the BTC 51X9 series
