clears are the most tactile switch that cherry has. It's an absolutely fantastic switch.

>that is not even close to true

I bought a switch tester and tried them. The blue clearly (lol) has more of a bump. Not even a bump really, it's more of a snap.

It says "cherry" on the switch, but maybe I got goofed?

Additional surprising things:

>the heaviest clicky (gray?) has a really quiet click

>> No.58720659

>The blue clearly (lol) has more of a bump
It literally doesnt. It's not subjective.

Grey's don't click at all. Only cherry greens, blues, and whites click.

>It literally doesnt. It's not subjective.

First one was great, but I spilled something on it and the Alt key being sticky bugged me, so when the new generation of Das came out I sold the old one and upgraded. It's a really great keyboard with one issue: I didn't realize when I bought it that they had changed out the Cherry switches for Greetech. Lately, the WASD keys seem to stick on randomly ONLY when I play vidya. It doesn't happen that often, but it's back-breaking when it does. At first I wasn't sure why it was doing this, but I think I'm convinced it's just the switches at the end of their life.

That you're butt hurt over a fucking USB cable?

That you're poor enough to care about the pittance it cost?

That you're shallow enough to buy an "artisan" USB cable cause the color matches your riced up keyboard?

That no matter how pleased you are with the aesthetics of your special snowflake keyboard, your perfect Android lock screen theme, your cute PC case with color coordinated components, etc. None of which ever makes up for your intellectual shortcomings and overall lack of accomplishment?

Still can't program your way out of mom's basement with those modded switches and PBT keycaps...so perfectly tactile and silenced, yet still they feel unfinished -- the romantic dream you had of the perfect typing tool hasn't increased your WPM like you'd hoped, and the overwhelming feeling of incompleteness this causes you leaves you unable to face the reality that your autistically retentive conspicuous consumption will never help you earn the kind of money that would persuade women to forgive your utter lack of self confidence and character.

So you've come here whining and betraying your misplaced priorities in hopes that someone will care about you just because the only thing you've ever had the persistence to carry through with was repeatedly disparaging some guy who makes USB cables in his garage.

You don't have to get new keycaps. Eventually the oils from your skin will wear away the entire top of them, and then you can claim that you had blank keycaps this whole time.

Ducky One TKL is a nice mid range brand with plenty of features like macros, layers, as well as good build quality.

thats just how shit works
fancy stuff is limited, and if you miss it, be ready to pay a lot more than the original price, specially when they're already expensive to begin with
being into mechanical keyboards and general buyfagging is a curse

Whats your opinion of topre switches?. Currently using blues but after progamming for more than a few hours it makes my fingers hurt so I'm looking for something abit lighter.

>> No.58738326

I don't like them, but switches are a preference thing.
how light do you want to go, gateron clears are like 35g for example.

How does one go about ordering a TADA68 now? The Website just says 'sold out' & has spaces to submit name/email but doesn't actually say if that's to sign up for stock notification or...?

Hey guys, do you know of a keyboard that has the following characteristics:
*Less wasted space between keys than regular boards
*Function keys lined up with 1-0 number keys
*Additional programmable buttons next to caps lock
*bonus: one or more scrollwheels for volume/etc

Or ideally, a place where someone that is admittedly less than average at building things can find something equal to those requirements and build it themselves.

In any case, have a Kagura for your troubles.

are you familiar with the concept of mailing lists?

You could buy one directly from China.

Get it from Taobao, but wait until the Chinese holidays are over. Ordered one there a bit over a week ago and they still haven't shipped it. It's also like $60 there, which is less than half of what you'd pay on Originative.

they feel nice but they're not for me. they're not for anyone who doesn't like bottoming out keys imo

>> No.58739380

It's been years since I ordered anything from Taobao, do you still have to use a forwarding agent? Or can you actually have the sellers ship straight to you?

You need chinese paypal and ask the seller. Usually they do
