Bought this on sale for $50 a couple years back and it's still going strong. I wanted a nicer keyboard that could fit on my desk drawer while also leaving room for my mouse. It's not top of the line but if you can get it on sale like I did it's worth the money. The cable is detachable if needing to replace but I haven't worn it out yet either.

>> No.58895284

Hey I bought this as well this Black Friday. All in all it's probably their best board with a good price, dedicated volume control, tasteful color scheme and no sperg RGB lighting.

Just wish they made it in more switches, red is not the best for typing which is why I bought a topre board recently.

>> No.58895332

I have two Das Keyboards I picked up around 5-6 years ago. One with blank key caps one with blue key switches, and another with browns.

They still work great, although the USB expansion ports in one of them don't work anymore, think I fucked them up somehow. Anyway, I'm getting bored with them, and feel Das is just baby's first easy-modo mechanical keyboard. I want to advance to the next level.

What should I look at or research? I'm in America, my budget is $100-$200. Don't care for LEDs so much, but if they're non-optional, would prefer non-blue LEDs. Tactile key switches to start. Full or TKL, will consider both.

I'm looking for something bulky and rock-solid, something that's got the old Commodore 64 or Amiga feel to it in terms of cap quality. A pleasing color scheme for the caps would be nice too.

Same here, there's definitely more to be desired from the cherry switches that are installed in them.

I do like having raised keys though, great for cleaning (I eat at my desk like an animal). Even with the drawer, I still somehow get crumbs on it.

Not really. Usually there is individual slider for each key, which produces tactile feedback, but at the base its still a rubberdome sheet over membrane.

Topre actuation is based on some complicated electronic magic sensing spring compression, while dome over membrane is good old "bridge two traces together" shit.
Topre actuates mid-stroke, rubberdome actuates on bottoming out.
There is a shit-ton of those chinese "mechnical feel" keyboards, ranging in quality, but usually cheap as dirt. Some of them have MX-compatible sliders so you can change caps (like those CM and i-Rocks keyboards)

Topre feels like a Cherry MX brown but replace the tactile bump with a membrane flex and the key triggers without bottoming out. and it is alos much quiter and even more so if you buy silencing O-rings.

Are knockoff Topres any good? I'm really considering getting the plum 75.
Comes with PBT keycaps, rgb, fully programmable, 60% with function row, bluetooth or wired, cherry mx stems. I'm surprised it's not more popular.
People seem to complain that there is no 55g weight but I've never tried a real topre and I'm currently using gateron browns. I've also read that the bluetooth can't keep up with over 9-10 keys a second.

Using a Royal Kludge RC930. These are pretty good to be honest, even compared to real Topre. Absolutely worth the savings. I really do recommend 55g, but 45g is also good, especially if you like light switches. The real topre advantage I think is that rubber domes provide rebound off the keys that doesn't affect your ability to hold down the key.

Tactility will often be more noticeable than a brown.

with function layer mapping you can set it so that the number row is the function row.

Plum nopres are the best. However, 87 TKL is an ugly form factor with so much empty space; go with the 84-key plum non-rgb on aliexpress from 'EZ Mandarin Shoppers' aka 'mech greenhands' on deskthority: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Plum84-electrostatic-capacitive-mechanical-keyboard-topre-clone-compact-gaming-keyboard-PBT-keycap-detachable-cable-84-mini/818123_32598836635.html

Also the 87-key Plum has a non-removable USB cord, 84-key has a removable braided mini USB cable. The only downside to the 84 is the super non-standard 5.5u spacebar, so if you want to get rid of the NiZ (name of Plum owner's daughter), you gotta paint over it, get a 3-D printed spacebar on shapeways or something, or get odd bars from keycap sets like MiTo's Braun set that just expired on Massdrop last week.

Lastly, Massdrop will ship your shit in a year (they're shipping that 87 TKL in May); if you order from aliexpress, you'll get it in 3 weeks from China.

35g Nopres (topre clones) are super light (think slightly lighter than cherry browns - some register at 30g. Thankfully Plum includes 30x 10g springs with all their boards so you can at least convert the alphas to 45g. If you want 55g, you can get 20g springs on taobao(they are legit to order from, they make good pbt keycaps that sometimes show up on massdrop, etc.). https://world.taobao.com/item/531262544790.htm These topre springs are wider than cherry springs and go around the cylindrical slider under the keycaps. If you don't want springs under your keycaps, then you can achieve 55g native by replacing Plum's rubber dome sheet with your own, but you'll have to do some custom cutting to get the right fit.

there a lot of little neat things about plum. Aside of springs, they also include spare stabilizer.
Also, I like how they did cable in 108 version. Three way canal is quite handy.

You can get a cheap chinese mechanical keyboard for less then 30 bucks. The build quality is better then a 30 dollar rubber dome keyboard, and in some cases a 50 dollar mechanical keyboard
Just go to a big box store and test some switches

IBM beamspring.

I have one. It's pretty not great. The cap quality is shit. But if you don't try to make the keycaps be a knockoff of a well known hard to get set, it wouldn't be too horrible.

What is the point of a mechanical keyboard over, say, a 7-row Thinkpad keyboard? What am I gaining in my day-to-day?

>> No.58925666

you gain nothing aside of nice tactile feeling and aesthetic

Something more comfortable to type on. That's most of the point really.

GMK plum will be on massdrop in a few days. Different profile but a similar color scheme. I am glad I waited to order caps, the last few gmk group buys have been ugly.
