I've been suffering from RSI a couple of years, so having a numpad is literally painful. Could take one on the left tho.
I rarely use F1-12 buttons so I never really care. Holding Fn the few times I need one isn't a huge deal

>> No.58558258

>How the fuck can you guys not want a numpad?
I never use it. It seems like it's only useful if you have a data entry job or something. All the keys on the numpad are duplicates from elsewhere on the keyboard but further from your home position. Also if you're right handed, omitting the numpad means you can put the mouse closer to the keyboard, which is better ergonomically.

>How the fuck can you guys want to not have F1-F12 buttons?
I rarely use these either. Most key shortcuts in programs I use are Ctrl+Letter or just plain letters.

>How does this in any way give you a better experience?
Putting these rarely-used keys on Fn layers is actually better because your hands don't have to stray far from their home position when you need to press them. It also frees up space on your desk. The HHKB, which is reasonably popular in these threads, takes these ideas to an extreme and puts quite a lot of keys on the Fn layer.

>Since when did having a small ass keyboard for a desktop become popular? It's like using a goddamn cramped netbook keyboard.
Not really. These have full-size keys and full travel, unlike laptop keyboards.

I'm looking for a new mechanical keyboard.

I dunno, up to $150 I guess, preferrably around $50 though since I never keep things for more than one or two years.

Red switches, a comfortable wrist rest, a standard QWERTY layout (a numpad isn't useful to me though) without making the keys compact as dried cat turds.

Backlights, macro keys, shortcut functions etc are never used so I don't care if they're there or not as long as it doesn't increase the price. I just don't want a comfortable keyboard for games.

>> No.58562121

Oh, and I currently use a QPAD MK-50. I'd buy a new one but they've long since been in production. It's been the perfect keyboard though, but it's gotten over-used and over-abused, and I also can't be bothered to thoroughly clean it again.

It's pretty clear when using Google Translate and then just remembering where each button is. Still, I know a bit of Japanese and some stuff is a bit similar, specially the switch color which is the most important, so most of it was easy to understand. Going from left to right, top to bottom on the Taobao page, the switch options (the ones without picture icons, those are cases, cables and wrist rests) are Black, Tea (Brown), Green and Red. All with white backlight.

Also, just a heads up, most of these are listed on local auction site Trademe. I've also advertised the White Fox keyboards on Massdrop but so far it's been a crapshoot. No, I will not make a Reddit account.

Yeah, my bad, I was just going off Google's translation and didn't check the original text, but you're right.

Should I get 62g or 65g zeals?

You should get Cherry clears

>> No.58573646

I've heard their actuation force is like double of that of the browns I'm using now and I really don't want a tiring switch. It's why I don't really like Topre that much; I get tired typing on it (which isn't related to the actuation force but that you can't really not bottom them out).

Got myself a Magicforce today and it'll be my first mechanical keyboard.

How much is my life about to change /mkg/?
Will I become as autistic as the rest of you and start spending 100+ dollars on keyboards after this due to inability to go back to anything less?

Have you tried a really light Topre, such as the ALL30g variant?

>> No.58576069

Nope, I only tried 45g. Something about the switch just feels tiring to me. I don't typically bottom out my strokes so maybe that's why. With Topre it feels like I'm forced to do it.

>> No.58576136

Yes, because Topre is pretty much designed for bottoming out. If you don't like that, try a different switch - nothing wrong with that.

good bye
