Any rubber dome aficionados here?

We're a small group of individuals boldly going against the grain in striving for tactile perfection. We prefer the gentle, organic feedback of a rubber dome over the robotic, cold click of soulless mechanical keyboards. The feeling is gentle and intoxicating - like typing on clouds. And best of all? In comparison to mechanical switches, rubber domes are almost inaudible.

Keyboard manufacturers prefer selling mechanical keyboards because they're much more expensive. They line their pockets with the money of clueless consumers who are unaware or simply do not care for an alternative.

I hope there are like-minded individuals here. Perhaps we could have daily rubber dome keyboard threads where we can share photos and anecdotes about our devices. It's important that we stick together, us, users of these particular type of input devices. We have much in common.

>> No.58647378

>tfw fellow eurofag
Playing with mech keybs is indeed a rocky road. You can't just buy and resell keyboards until you find the right one for you, cause nobody wants to buy them, every country has its own retarded layout and nobody likes us/ansi. Only razer/corsair have a small market cause they're heavily marketed to gaymers, but even my little brother sold his blackwidow cause it didn't have accented letters.

I think if more rubber domes looked like girly accessories and had autistic features like easily switchable caps and pointless layouts, a lot more people would realize they're not nearly as bad as they think.

When a mech autist starts talking about rubber domes, you'd think he only ever tried a $5 keyboard before he splurged $120 on a trench warfare simulator.

>> No.58647752

given that you can build your own mechanical to the point of soldering is all together and choosing your own layout, I'd say mechanical is far ahead for me. Rubberdomes also feel nice, though.

>> No.58647794


Well if you're sitting there soldering your keyboard, you're clearly not a poser who heard he has to own a mech to be a special snowflake.

I'm addressing two things that are a side-effect of the resurgence of mech keyboards:

1) Mentioned snowflakes.

2) The fact that there are no rubber domes that don't look like shit, so some people will buy a mech for its looks alone.

/g/, I had a really weird dream.
I dreamt I bought some cheap mouse + keyboard combo but the keyboard looked real cool with lots of color coordinated keys and aesthetic symbols and stuff. It was white and orange and blue and it just looked real nice. The mouse was some clear garbage I didn't care about because I already had a nice mouse, but I wanted the keyboard.

Then something happened. I don't remember what, but someone ended up bending my keyboard out of anger so it looked like that weird microsoft curved keyboard only smaller and still colorful.

So then I went back to the store to rebuy it, but I just wanted to buy the keyboard because I didn't need two cheap mice I wasn't gonna use, and the girl there was kinda cute and giggled and said something...and then I woke up.

I fucking want that keyboard now. This post reminded me of it. I think I made it up in my brain buy maybe I can find a keyboard similar, I have to look now.
I have to.

tl;dr this is what I vaguely recall the keyboard looking like, do you know of any keyboards that look like this? Similar in any way?

I'm looking now but there's literally thousands of keyboards to look through so any help would be appreciated.

At best, you're abusing a dead meme which was only excusable and had a context in the bodybuilding community.

At worst, you're an underage tard incapable of just saying "beautiful" because you're a special snowflake. So you appropriate "aesthetic" instead and proceed to use it wrong.

Hmmm, as silly as that sounds the big ass orange enter key is kind of a hang up for me. I'm having trouble finding any keyboards at all with that kind of enter key. I guess it's just a relic of a bygone age at this point?
International ISO style has a similar one, although kind of upside down.
I might just have to give up on that part.

I've never bought a mechanical keyboard before so I'm a bit in the dark for what the best kind of keys for me would be. I play some games I suppose but most don't require heavy use of the keyboard. I do a lot of typing though.

I was thinking maybe blacks. I'm somewhat clumsy with big fingers so I manage to hit a lot of unintended keys at times, so having a key that has to bottom out to be activated would be nice. But then I also type a lot, so I was also thinking either browns or white.

MasterKeys Pro L should fit that, but it might be a bit more than what you have for a budget, since it's $140 on Amazon right now, but the TKL version is $100 if you're okay with that. Ducky is another option as the other anon recommended with the Shine 5. Pretty much every other RGB keyboard looks like gaming garbage.

>20 bids
Who would bid on a piece of crap like that? I wouldn't bid 5 dollars on one white blank keycap.

I've got a fullsize for work on the way, and I'll be making a numpad to fit the aesthetic of my tada68, but fucking hell I'm still getting one of those.

>are y'all typing that much?
obviously so, someone's got to do the shitposting

if you want full size check this out: https://www.amazon.com/Glorious-Gaming-Mechanical-Keyboard-Minimalist/dp/B01D8YNJH0

it usually goes on sale at 80$ the cool thing about it is you can switch out the switches if you want in the future. I would have gotten it myself but i dont like red back lighting, but since you do, you can wait for it to go down in price again if you want

do i have to desolder to install zealencios?

>> No.58654640

No. They just clip onto the top of the switches.

>> No.58654683

ohhok so just pull out key and then slap em on?

are they worth or just a meme? using chink abs

>> No.58654713

They certainly make the board noticeably quieter, even on the upstroke. If making it quieter is your goal then go for it.

Bought a bunch of Mod L switches to replace the cherry reds on this one keyboard I have. One of those rare bluetooth mechanical keyboards which I love functionally, but not pleasurably.

It's gonna be a pain to desolder and then solder in the new switches, isn't it.

I hope you're ready for a lot of tedium.

just saw that thank anon. they're pretty expensive... lol using a magicforce68 with gat browns and abs chink cap, which i assume to be gateron brand.

might give oring a shot first. Will o rings make the key feel heavier?

>> No.58655355

No, at worst it'll make the bottom out feel mushy.

>> No.58656451

I don't care for sound or aesthetics (i got one in beige) but I do like feedback. I think this is going to be the mecca. MX Greens were the heaviest i could find and I love them. spring keyboards supposedly have a higher weight (?) point.

I know most people don't want to type on a typewriter for hours but I have short, stubby, strong hands and it just suits me well. Good to know you have to clean them. The mechanisms did look more complicated than MX cherrys, i.e., more of a bowl than a stump.

Compared to PBT how does the Pok3r RGB feel to type on?
