still waiting on my orange alphas, esc, arrow keys, they are apparently w/n my state now, so soon(tm)

These keycaps are def a major upgrade from the oems, they sound 100 times better too, not as clacky and obnoxious, if i end up not liking the orange keycaps, i might just stick with these whites
also they included a wire keypuller and a meme cap, that i sued for esc, kind of a shame it bleeds through as i think its pretty cute.

the only negative things i can think of is that, it didn't come in a foam case, just a plastic one, which kinda sucks since i was planning on putting my old key caps in foam, but w/e... and also the ampersand and the B has slight problems with shine through, i guess those part got a bit too thick?

They are also not as gray in the picture in the Alibaba but not super white either

but for 16 bucks and shipping took 10 days i cant complain, the quality was way better than what i had expected so i'm pretty happy also these are ABS

Dude what? your mouse/trackball/dragon dildo is on the right of the keyboard, with a 100% layout and numpad on the right side you constantly stretch your right arm outwards, causing shoulder pain after a while.

New mech owner here. I got a board with MX browns for a nice price.

The thing is, I hate noise. My membrane keyboard was even kind of noisy, and this obviously isn't better.

My observation is that 80% of the noise comes from two things: fingers hitting the keycaps, and the keycaps returning to their resting point on release. The action itself is relatively quiet and there are o-rings installed so bottoming out isn't a big deal.

Are there ways to address this at all? I can type a little quieter if I try, yes, but there seems to be a lot of room for improving on the noise in the mechanism.

I really hate noise.

>> No.58535832

It does have batteries, and programmable RGB lighting, and PBT keycaps, and macro support, and it can be used as a numpad to accompany your laptop or keyboard, and since the calculator doesn't need to be connected to a PC you can use it to annoy your co-workers

Clear springs just ramp up in weight quicker than other MX switches. So although the actuation point (after the bump) is ~55g, the bottom out is around 90g. Greys are the same, just 20g heavier all around. A whole board of greys would get tiring.

ok then look for 60% keyboards. you don't have to wait for mass drops, most of the "regular" drops you can buy somewhere else for the same price sometimes cheaper and w/o the wait.

once you get your 60% keyboard figure out what kind of color scheme you wanna do. Some times some color schemes will require more than 1 set. or sometimes special sets do come in mass drop/group buys, and prepare to cash out $$$ most of the time these special sets cost more than the kb itself. and you'll know there'll be a special drop cause people here at /mkg/ will be drooling over them

I honestly thought this guy is talking about a potential real world scenario since everybody in this general is a /k/ crossposter and has a few dozen guns and rocket launchers.

kek hide that mouse he is looking directly to it
those apple mouses worth it? the look solid

>> No.58548625

Apple mouse is indeed solid but not comfy for me. Claw grip kills my wrist and right clicking is a pain. I'm using it only cause I got it for free and doesn't use any usb port.

Probably in a month or two, if I had to guess. You could buy MOD switches instead if you don't want to wait.

>> No.58549196

Thought it was just me when people were saying it's meant to be easier than BF4. It does take some getting used to.

>> No.58549433

I was considering those but I need a clear housing for backlighting

>> No.58549542

You going to be placing LEDs underneath the switch then? 'Cause the top half of the housing on MODs is clear at least.

>> No.58549556

I'm going to replace the switches of an rgb pok3r and I believe its rgbs are shine through

>> No.58549619

Yea you're right, it uses a second PCB for SMD LEDs.
