>mfw missing a single keycap and can't find it anywhere

Replying to your question about US vs. Switzerland a couple threads ago. I would say it is different but not much worse.

Everything is much cheaper in the States, both in price and quality. Even better quality items are still somewhat cheap. Houses are massive and affordable.

It is difficult to find farms run by people, but they exist. In the last ten years or so, grocery stores have started offering much better fresh products.

There is not the same sense of community, but I come from a small village and now I live in a suburb, so maybe smaller American towns have that. In terms of friendliness it is about the same in the Midwest as it is in Switzerland.

The one thing that is amazing about living here is the cars. Public transportation doesn't exist outside of cities, but it is so cheap to drive wherever, roads are very wide, parking is not too difficult to find.

I've lived here too long to compare what shipping is like for keyboards or other computer stuff, but it is very cheap and fast here. Everything being so cheap leaves me some money for hobbies.

The only bad thing is taxes are very high. Expect to pay about twice as much in taxes here.

Most of my complaints are missing homeland or missing the good things about living in rural area.

Not necessarily, there's also rubber domes with conductive pads and PCBs. And Topre.

Unless you're referring to rubber dome sheets as a form of membrane itself.

>> No.58490821

Razer greens have 2mm travel instead of 4, and reset at 1.5mm. They also don't have the "click" feature of clears and blues.
They are a little stiffer than browns, so they feel more tactile and "snappier".
They are definitely something different, and some people to legitimately prefer them as "gaming switches", but they're worse for typing.

>USB keyboards can't support NKRO, at least not without special magical drivers
False. The standard USB HID report protocol allowed NKRO from day 1. Drivers were just broken out of the box, and garbage keyboards only implemented the USB HID boot protocol.

>USB implies polling. Only PS/2 controllers support hardware interrupts.
False. xHCI, the controller specification of USB 3, supports hardware interrupts. Keyboards with xHCI interfaces exit.

Yes, I own the CM one. I was on a similar issue as you, and those two were the options I had at the moment, and I went for the Swift-RX because it was a bit cheaper on Black Friday and it has stitched edges.
