Used for a while a BenQ keyboard with Acer switches. Better than any membrane I ever used, but looking for something more clicky.

Both the Filco Majestouch 2 and WASD Keyboard's v2, in the configuration I want, seem both to fit my criteria, but I can't find stock of the first one in that particular configuration and WASD's shipping to Europe makes it expensive. What are my alternatives?

*sorry for bad pic quality, just doing this real fast like

welp... orange """PBT""" key caps from chink man finally arrived. not sure how i feel desu. the first thing, I dont think this is pbt at all? cause it doesn't feel thicker than my white ones which are double shot abs from chinkman also. and the bleed through at the top face is horrendous! fortunately its only at the top but regardless i was gonna paint the walls white anyway so the legends wont glow orange.
And yes, this is at max brightness but still, as you can see the white ones has no bleed through at all. So i dont think this is pbt or can pbt be this thin? cause the only thing comparable tot he bleed through is my meme down arrow cap before i used white out inside it to control the bleeding.

the orange is pretty nice, pastel and matches the white keys really nice

so now im kinda torn if i should put in the effort in painting the orange key caps white inside, if its worth the effort or just stick with whites

Hey, /g/.

I just bought a Rosewill RK-9000V2 with Cherry Brown switches as my first mechanical after doing a good bit of research. I love it. Typing is pure pleasure now, and the ergonomics are great. I'm running into one problem.

The keyboard has the option to use PS2 or USB. I opted for PS2 due to unlimited key rollover as opposed to 6 via USB. Now, it was always my experience that PS2 keyboards weren't plug and play; that you had to plug them in when the PC was off, then boot it and voila. For some reason, this keyboard when using USB AND PS2 is hot swappable. The problem is that, whichever connection I choose, it will not be recognized in my BIOS. I'll reboot, the lights will flash and do their check, but keys will not be recognized. As soon as I'm in Windows, I have to unplug and replug, and it gets instantly recognized. I can't find anyone else who has this problem. The common issue people usually have is the opposite: "it works in the BIOS but not Windows."

I have absolutely no idea how to fix this, and Google hasn't offered me any answers or even suggestions. It's frustrating because I love this keyboard. My PC is fresh built less than four months ago and I'd be happy to provide specs if necessary.

Can any of you guys give me some advice? I'd really appreciate it.

Tai hao coats their PBT with some really shitty substance, makes them feel rough and sticky if your fingers sweat. Also their colored keycaps tend to distort color quickly if your fingers sweat because of that coating. Imsto or Ducky PBT keycaps don't come with that shitty coating and are a better representation of what PBT keycaps should feel like. Avoid Tai Hao if you actually use your keyboard, they look good on pictures but feel like shit.

Which ones did you buy
The NPKC PBT caps are alright imo

You won't notice it right away but you will eventually. The keycaps on my Ducky Shine 3 are shiny as fuck after three years.

>> No.58602660

>Ducky Channel Partners
I checked all their partners in the UK and only microdirect stocks TLK version for £85 but it's sold out. All the rest only have RGB version, with overclockers being the cheapest for £130

>> No.58602822

why not buy from your next door neighbors? You still haven't officially left the EU yet.

No, I already have someone for that

These here, plus the TADA68, Model M and some old cherry board with PCB mounted clears.

Going to sell the Shine 4 and get a Ducky One with whites.

Have you considered a Leopold? you can get them from mykeyboard.eu without customs fees. most of the black TKL ones are out of stock but you can always ask them about it.

Don't bother. Even if its from keyboardco he wouldn't buy one since it isn't on amazon.
There are also CM keyboards too

ANSI looks better, ISO Enter is a bit comfier.

>> No.58603680

Dunno the one where enter takes 2 rows, not 1.

>> No.58603688

neither. Bigass enter key is the best

>> No.58603814

As a current ISO user, ANSI for the better symmetry.

I'm starting to think a Varmilo VA68M/Magicforce 68 layout might actually be the best layout for me, are there any completely programmable options for that?

>> No.58603839


>> No.58603865

I know of that, I was hoping for something with the 4-key cluster at top right and all standard ANSI caps so when I want replacement keycaps for it I can just buy the packs needed for a TKL, no spending extra on special modifiers I'm only going to use one or two of.

Suggestions for leaf babbys first mech keyboard. Looking for blues/brown and tenkeyless form factor. Cheaper stuff if possible too

>> No.58605116

Get a cheap Gateron board.
Their switches are much smoother.
