Ducky One fullsize with cherry blues

I can't decide on the switch, so I guess I'll get a tester. I really like the blues I have but want something that's not so loud as an alternative.

I'm considering the Leopold FC750R, doesn't come in clears though. Maybe reds with o-rings?

So I'm really picky when it comes to the next keyboard I want to get. Full size, floating keys, metal plate mounted, clear or similar (Zeal, Mod) switches, PBT caps, no LEDs unless they're already included, and no media keys. Both custom sellers (Winkeyless, Gon) have things I don't like (media keys) and are expensive as fuck. I could wire and build one myself but would still require getting a proper case. The cheapest and easiest I see would be from just buying an existing chink keyboard and swapping the switches and caps.

tl;dr Is buying a chink mechanical keyboard just for the case and PCB a viable option?

You know both winkeyless and gon sell fully programmable keyboards right? The only reason they'd ever have media keys is if you made them have media keys.

Also winkeyless' bbb cases are 100% acrylic, the only metal is the screws and standoffs holding it all together.

So it's a cheaper corsair board? Great.

>> No.59039332

It had some issues with the stabilizers on earlier batches, but they've fixed that now. Apart from that, not much to complain for $80. The case is plastic, the keycaps are PBT with a nice texture, but they're not thicc PBT, and it's generally quite a bit lighter than other keyboards I own, but it is a 60% after all.
Don't think you can get it with blacks though. Seems like the only three options, even on Taobao, are reds, blues and browns.

I'm typing this post with on a Unicomp that I've had for about five months, and I really enjoy typing on it, but hearing a click every time I scroll with the arrow keys does grate on my nerves occasionally, and since I live in a college dorm all of my neighbors know when I'm on the computer late at night.

Not at all. Those do change, yeah, and they're significant changes, but there are a lot more things than just switches and layout, like the actual case design, backlights, overall build quality and materials (plastic or aluminum for example), extra features like being programmable or having a software, NKRO, bluetooth, etc.

Figure out if you're okay with a TKL first. If you are, get the iKBC, if not, get the Rosewill, or the QuickFire if you're undecided. I'd probably go with the iKBC one, unless you need backlight.

>> No.59051448

I'm fine with TKL, I would just like a backlight. Nothing too fancy, just a white one would be nice.

>> No.59051499

Then it's basically a decision between the Rosewill and the QuickFire TK. I personally don't really like how either of those look, but the Rosewill looks a bit better, mainly because the bottom row seems to be standard, so you can easily change keycaps, but I'm not sure if you care about that.

Das is shit because they switched their production line to a manufacturer in mainland China.

Cooler master is generally considered the best bang-for-buck if you want cherry switches, filco is fine too, just overpriced.

Nothing wrong with cheap chinkboards in the 30-50 bucks range, many of them are available with gaterons, and even the ones that aren't are still quite decent. I don't know what gives you the idea that switches are assembled by hand, and last I had a 50 bucks chink board the soldering job wasn't any worse than what I've seen on my Ducky. Not to mention that a mechanical keyboard for 30 bucks is cheap as shit, barely a year ago 70 bucks was the cheapest you'd get a chink mech for.
