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.

Case noise has a great impact on the peak noise of a keyboard.
Although a switch may be clicky, bottoming out is usually the loudest part of a keyboard's operation.
Lube can also reduce the noise of a keyboard.

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?

well, would you look at that. I'll have to check for keys that can replace the ansi shift, but this seems very nice.

isn't 60% just a keyboard with a roughly 15*5 key matrix? it's perfectly possible to fit alphas, most mods, arrow keys and a numpad in there (generally with the number row replaced by a symbol row for [],./\'; to reduce the width of the alphas section)

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. That opens up the possibility of using the 1.5u key above enter as backspace or delete, with another useful system key put where del currently is.

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.

I guess to play devils advocate, would you not entertain the idea that paying 30 bucks extra is worth not having to wait for 5 months to get your keycaps?

I don't have an immense experience with GB's, I've only been a part of R1 Jukebox, R2 1976, Carbon SA, and GMK carbon.

However, from this experience I can tell you that I would gladly pay an extra 30 or even 50 USD to have it in a matter of weeks than months.

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.

>put o-rings on Zealios
>they sound almost like Topre
What a strange feeling. I can still hear spring sounds and ping on some keys, so they don't sound as good as Topre.

>> No.58760255

Lube the springs m8, should reduce if not kill the ping.

>> No.58760363

open them up and try to get it to work. i have a gateron kb and one switch had ping, i managed to get it to work properly. But a switch that costs over three times as much should really not have this issue. Don't buy zeal.

>> No.58760574

I think you're confusing ping with chattering.

>> No.58760602

No, the ping caused by the spring vibriting, that sound is horrible.

>> No.58760646

It's a Filco Majestouch 2, and it's not that noticeable, really. I've had worse from WASD V2 with clears. The spring sound bothers me more. Like some keys have this noticeable spring compression sound when you press them.

this anon's back with another question.
Just found out the filco majestouch 2 is an option as well, its slightly more expensive then both other options though.
Filco is concidered a higher end product right ? Can anyone tell my why that is or if theres a real mayor difference between filco/leopold/ducky ?

I've been using a Razer Blackwidow for nearly 2 years now but there is one thing that keeps bugging me. My G Key sometimes writes g two times while i just pressed once.
I have no idea what the difference of a mechanical keyboard or a normal one even is. Can someone please help a noob like me?

>> No.58764315

Sounds like a faulty switch, ghosting, or poor debouching in the firmware.
Given that it's Razer i wouldn't hesitate to call their firmware shit.

There are plenty of difference, the most obvious being the type and quality of the switches which changes how it feels to type on.

Buying special o-rings made specifically for keyboards is a meme because of the price. You can go to the hardware store and get the same O-rings for $.10 instead of $15.00 or however much they sell them for.

Chink site has them for 3€. 150 rings per bags. And they're in the EU warehouse so i don't have to wait 60 days for the shipping.

Now, for the meme smol razer keyboard I found out that there are two versions, an orange and a green switch. Which one is the closest to a red switch?

Neither. Greens are closer to blues and orange is close to browns. Yellow is the one that's closest to reds

why would you use a specific keyboard for gaming? let alone some razer crap

Those look like ass. Pair them with one of those boards without a shroud around the switches for maximum garbage aesthetic.
He thinks razer are the only people making a tenkeyless board.

Well, I've tried brown from a friend and is really soft, which I don't like to play nor type at all.

Yeah, that's the idea, to have that smol meme on my far left and to move it a little or even leaving it there whenever I want to play, and that only on fps games, I guess.

Since I won't get anything until mid summer I'll try to build my own smol keyboard if I find it easy to do or just lurk on eBay for a really cheap smol.

Sure, ever heard of macros? You know, when you execute a set of instructions with a single button. Try assigning that to a single normal key, then try to chat in that game the same time. You'll be in for a surprise.

Dedicated macro keys that are not your normal keys, are the only correct way to use macros.
