4 u

and they aren't/weren't (no idea) immune from other issues, like the case being melted easily by soldering irons.

and regardless if these issues are something which is an issue to you personally or not, it's still an inferior and more expensive product to something you can get by modifying cherry clears

fair enough

this isn't what i've heard before, but you're right according to quick google search

it still melts easily but that's an issue with the transparent housing. there's a milky housing version for sale that doesn't have that issue

i'm not sure about gaterons in general. but if the wobble issue was indeed fixed then at the very least it would tell you that zealpc is in direct control and in that case the firs 3 GBs he did with wobbly switches are inexcusable

also I have MOD and zealios in front of me right now, and I can tell you they aren't even close.

Technically they have 62g springs, so slightly heavier than true ergo with brown springs. Just finished it recently so only be using it a couple days, but have the intent to make it my daily driver.

I really enjoy it. I bottom out less from the increased spring weight, and the tactile bump is more of what I wish browns were to start with. It's about the same noise level as my mx brown Leopold with orings, despite not having o rigs which is nice. Left the space bar switch as a standard clear switch as well because I'm a heavy thumb spacer, and now that's much more enjoyable. The small difference have also improved my typing slightly I think.

Overall I'm pretty happy with it, and would have a tough time going back to stock browns.

They're great for cutting down on noise if you ape out on your board like me.

If you need to cut down on noise they are good. I put them on a mx brown board because I was bottoming out loudly to the point people I was talking to online could hear it over the mic.

Personally I don't use them on my new board. I like how it feels more without them, but I also changed switches so that makes a difference. Enough orings to do an entire keyboard is like $5 online so it doesn't hurt to try it out yourself.

>If you board is a 2016 edition Ducky One ( which include Ducky one tkl, ducky one with PBT keycaps and ducky one non-backlit ) then it supports Ducky macro 2.0 which allows you to remap media keys to wherever you wish, just read the manual. If it's an original Ducky One ( full size with backlit ) then AFAIK it only has macro 1.5 without media keys remap feature. In which case you'll need to use a 3rd party program like Autohotkey to rebind buttons ( i.e rebind volume up command to next song, volume down to previous, etc ). Note that changes made by those programs are system while, i.e if you have your mouse set up to change volume using some buttons, those commands will be converted into next/prev song, too.

That's pretty much exactly what you'd pay for a Magicforce plus a set of pretty decent NPKC keycaps. The first one is $75 and the second about $25 all on AliExpress with free shipping. If you're fine with no dedicated arrow keys, then you can get an Anne Pro or RK61. Another alternative is a TADA68 for about $60 on Taobao, which has arrow keys and nice keycaps, but you might need to use an agent or just buy it directly from the website, which is Chinese.

If you want full size get a Ducky Shine 5.

If you want tkl either the RGB Disco or the Ducky One TKL RGB.

>> No.58784775

If you want RGB backlights, which you can fit under that budget, either a MasterKeys S or a Ducky One.

Hello loide

No clue what I am doing. I want a keyboard for vidya but I also want to do german shitposting, where can I buy a good mechanical keyboard for vidya but also has the special characters needed (äöüß €) Or will I have to program this?

It can work in a few different ways, you can set your keyboard to be detected as a qwertz one through your OS keyboard settings and locale, you can program it with good keyboards or you can get an actual german layout keyboard, depending on where you are you might need to import though.

So it changes the feeling enough for you to notice? Does it make the difference between bottoming out or not, like you feel a thunk more frequently?

That was my concern and why I was thinking thinner = better. Not bottoming out beats hitting rubber, even with the benefits, but nobody's 100%.

So I've been using an IBM Model M for a few months now and love it. The only thing I miss is the Windows button for all the shortcuts I'm used to. Is there an easy replacement/workaround that doesn't require running some random program in the background perpetually?

How much did both sets cost? Where they the same or did you get another from someone else?

I just hope that if it drops again they won't overcharge for it. It was nice that you could have gotten it for $100, maybe even less this time around.

How often does it drop?

I know it dropped once on massdrop for $100, then a second time, but that was a limited set and you had to buy it with the RS96 so it ended up being like $350+. There should be another this year some time.

I've been having some pain in my wrists lately so I'm looking to get an ergonomic keyboard. I'm thinking of the uTRON since a friend has been shilling topres hard, but are there other options I should consider? fwiw I've used brown and green switches before, and I don't really want to get either again.

>> No.58786495

well for starters don't rest your wrists, instead hover your hand over the keyboard. Get an ergodox of falbatech for cheap

>> No.58786544

i use a wrist rest but it hasn't seemed to help a ton. Also, it looks like I can only get an ergodox with cherry switches?

keychatter is a common issue on cherry keyboards. Just get a topre instead since they don't have keychatter for 30 million key presses compared to cherry which is 0

we have an official switch guide here

gaterons are much smoother then cherry switches which is why many people prefer them over the scratchiness of cherry. Greetech is just another chink switch that's worse then Kailh
