I don't think you understand what really creates good resale value.

It's scarcity. And the only ways to have scarcity are by having very few produced in the first place, or by having the number in existence reduce drastically from wear. The first is definitely out of the question, the second you'll be waiting for decades.

Help me decide /g/entoomen.
Im looking for a 100% keyboard with brown switches, preferably gateron but i'll settle for cherry, its babbies first mech key btw.

I'm looking at a few keyboard right now and was wondering if anyone can give me some good/bad points about these boards.

I'm mainly looking at the ducky one (pic related) & the leopold FC900R.

The leopold is more expensive and I dont like sideprinted keys so If i'd buy a set the leopold would end up being about $50 more expensive.

I like the looks of the ducky board & its caps except for the calc+media keys. Im not used to having any media keys and I'll probably never use them since I leave all my audio on 100% and control the levels through my amp. If i do decide to change caps on this board I'd have 4 extra keys without caps.
(is it easy to rebind those keys to something useful ?)

But besides looks I know fuckall about mech keyboards so maybe someone can shine some light onto this for me. Is there any mayor difference between the boards ? Build quality, spill resistance, noise damping or some other feature im not aware of?

I actually like this. Not perfect though, I'd shrink left shift to 2u, put a 1u \| key next to /?, shrink right shift to 1u and possibly change it to Fn.

I made this board a while back. The arrow keys are on a momentary function layer. [ is up, ; is left, ' is down, and \ is right. It's very intuitive to me.

one could argue that having your money tied up from months without recieving a product, might make some uncomfortable, even with the constant production updates. I've only gone through Massdrop so far, but I can see how the more independently run GB's might seem a little more "risky" to some. even if you wait 3 months for originative to get the item in stock, you only send your payment once they have the item in hand, and it's shipped out with tracking (i assume with tracking) the next day or whatever.

again, just devils advocate.

Can anyone help me out here?

Just bought a BTC 5100C from ebay and the title does say it's a ps2 but it also says '6 pin' I'm hoping it's actually ps2 and not 6 pin DIN (full size) I get it's a shit image and you can barely see the connector but could anyone hazard a guess as to whether this is DIN6 full or PS2?

>> No.58757452

Das uses chink switches. If you look at the previous threads two different anons had problems with keys no registering properly as well as keychatter issues. Topre on the other hand has no keychatter for 30 million presses compared to Cherry MX which is 0. Now the manufacturers will fix it if you rma the keyboard, but why go through all the hasle. You also wanted quiet and topre switches are quieter then any cherry switch. There are quieter switches like matias qc, but those are too wobbly imo. You don't have to get the Hipro as there are topre keyboards that range from 140-300 bucks

Gateron's as smoothe as Topre.
In the case of one of my HHKB's switches, even smoother than Topre. I lubed it but I'll probably have to re-lube it to get rid of the extremely scratchy feeling.
Too bad as I've used it for over two years so it's broken in.

I'm currently using this Tomoko cheapo. It's my first mechanical and even though it has knock off switches it's orgasmic compared to a membrane keyboard. Problem is while I'm really liking these blue switches for just typing, it's not so good for gaming unless I'm wearing headphones.

Could o-rings help me with this? Would they make the switches as quiet as they are without the actual keycap on them? I have a Razer Orbweaver I got for cheap and without the caps on this keyboard makes about as much sound as that and it's perfect. I would just use that Orbweaver but honestly it's such a pain it have to always be rebinding keys per game on it due to the limited amount of them.
