I'm in Europe, and looking for the best MX Blue keyboard that's TKL or 60%. Arrow keys are a must. Don't care about backlighting. Preferrably a white body.

If I can just get a board and separate keycaps that'd be fine as well, but I'm not looking to solder or program anything. I'd actually prefer US layout, so that should make it easier.

Guys my Unicomp Classic 104 just came in the mail today. God damn what an amazing machine.

Coming from a Ducky with blues on it but this is just worlds better.

I can understand some complaints about lack of QC on the casing, but mine appears to be pretty nice, so maybe I got lucky. A few problems but nothing I give a shit about. There are some rattly bits floating about in the case but I am 99% sure those are just bits of plastic and sprue because after some tilting and shaking one fell out. Not worried about it

My god I feel so important.

So my /mkg/ collection is now:

-Ducky 2108S with blues
-Unicomp Model M (Classic 104) PS/2 model

Next is going to be a Cherry basic with reds. Want to try those out long-term.

It's loud but ahhh this thing is awesome. So excited. Can't explain how happy I am with this at this current time. My typing is way more accurate. EXCELLENT.

Showed it to my dad and he wants one for work now. Might buy him one for father's day but he'd need to get IT approval.

you sound qt
Also very nice.
Was considering getting those modifiers (albeit labeled) for this boyo
I still want an original..But I love my Windows key.

The Classic is the direct descendant of the Model M. It even says Model M molded on the bottom. It is the next generation of the Model M just not IBM branded.
This one does have removable keycaps, AFAIK the Ultra does not.

I misspoke when I said I wish I had a real Model M. This IS a real Model M. However, what I meant to say is I wish I had an early IBM-manufactured (so silver logo) Model-M.

The Ultra Classic is lighter, keycaps are attached to stems AFAIK, and takes up less space. I wanted the gold standard, so I bought the gold standard.

The ultra classic is just a regular model M. The biggest difference is that the case is smaller. They are both the same keyboard and there is no difference in feel. The two piece keycaps are an extra option for both keyboards.
You are thinking of the Unicomp Spacesaver that is the "different" keyboard. Its functionally the same but the metal plate and the plastic is different from the regular model M used in the classic and ultra classic keyboards

They actually use a non-standard bottom row (a mix of 1, 1.25 and 1.5 size mods with a 6.5 size spacebar instead of all 1.25 size mods and a 6.25 spacebar) so replacing keycaps ain't easy.

Any of the Red Scarf keyboards

Why not just change the keycaps on your existing one?

>> No.58637793

because I need a second one for work. And I prefer white and black for my next one. The Ducky One is really lit but I can't find a german version of this color variation xO
but thanks for help!

>> No.58637844

Oh, I thought you were looking to replace your existing one, which made me a bit confused since they're both similar. Still, the Ducky One is pretty close to what you're looking for. If you want black and white, you could just get another MasterKeys (or any similar keyboard) and get some white keycaps, which is probably easier than finding a black keyboard with white keycaps.

>> No.58637862

I only know of two manufactures that make solid mechanical Keyboards in the German layout. Those are Filco and Ducky. You could buy a black Ducky/Filco keyboard then replace the keycaps on that

>> No.58638061

thank you for this tip! what is the best website to order some white backlight keycaps for ISO layout? :)

>> No.58638116

massdrop sells some for cheap. Otherwise you can try Gateron, Vortex, and NPKC keycaps. I checked Vendio and their white keycaps are out of stock.

If you want them that badly and can't wait then get some from china

There's a nice Vortex PBT set on MechanicalKeyboards. They've updated it too so now the numbers are next to the symbols instead of under them which meant they weren't backlit. I think it also comes with the extra ISO keys.

Its actually pretty cheap.
I wanted to get pic related, but I lost the bid.
Its like 2 hours on minimum wage and you should be able to afford a full set of those keycaps

>> No.58639894

just the top thing kek
QMK said they're coming up with a plate mounted alternative (they already have a PCB one) so that might reduce the price a bit since the PCB QMKs are less than half as expensive as the zealencios

But they are cheap. Just how poor are you? I make enough tips in one afternoon to be able to afford two of them. If you factor in my salary I can buy like 15 keyboards from one day's of work on minimum wage. Of course I've already paid off my bills for that day so all whats left is what I'm using to buy those 15 keyboards

Planning on getting this keyboard.
its the Drevo Gramr 84 Key, but im not sure what switch type to get. I have a Steelseries apex 300 and love the feel of these keys over mechanicals ive used in the past. So which of red, blue, and black feel the most similar to membrane switches

>> No.58640490

Probably reds. Blacks if you want something not so light.

>> No.58640508

Have the same monitor. Can confirm it's top comfy.

>> No.58640739

i mean it was like 11 bucks
the white one came first, and i was really surprised how good and comfy they were, so my expectations of the orange ones went through the roof since im thinking pbt>abs boy was i wrong.

im 80% sure the whiteones are gaterons, no mentions on the seller's page but the box it came with had gateron

The backlights are RGB, so I can just set it to any color I want. The keycaps are white with transparent legends, so they don't have any color themselves.

call me a moron but how do you space?

>> No.58641633

It's probably fully programmable, so most people would use the right or left big button on the bottom of the keyboard.
Since most people are right handed, I would assume most people use the GREEN button for space.
