This is my 3 year old Shine 3. I use the reactive lighting mode (point is, NOT the "customized" lighting modes), and today, the lights shown are just ticked on at a very low brightness (compare to the numlock and the spacebar, which are at normal brightness).
I've tried unplugging and replugging, tried changing light modes, tried messing with the dip switches, no result: They refuse to shut off.

Anyone have this problem? Any ideas?

>> No.59388343

Do you guys touch type "properly"? I'm talking about 10-finger qwerty layout here. Or did you teach yourself and type with much fewer fingers?

I can touch type and am pretty fast doing it, but I don't do it anywhere near properly. Should I actually take them time to learn propert qwerty layout typing?

>>59389819
Same here, until I tried it and it just always feels wrong and I accidentally switch back to using my index finger to hit C. There are many many posts like this on the internet, and they all agree that the standard layout is a bit nonsensical at times -- especially because it wasn't really designed around being easy to type, but to prevent jams in old typewriters. I prefer to type well and comfortably instead of following some archaic standards of what is good.

This might also help your decision: https://phys.org/news/2016-02-ten-fingers-fast.html

>>59389833
No it just means that B can be hit with either index finger, whatever feels better to you at the moment.

>> No.59389876

>>59389771
That's what I really don't understand with the standard fingering.

Training the muscle memory to get over the awkwardness is easy, but you have to completely leave the home row to reach the keys which kind of beats the whole point

>> No.59389894

>>59389876
I couldn't agree more. As I said, I'll be learning it like in the article linked above, I feel this will lead to much safter and better typing in the long run. Just because it deviates from the archaic standard, doesn't mean it's worse.

Impressive, for me it's about improving accuracy so I dont have to make corrections, and getting consistent so I can always use my burst wpm.

Practice is really all there is, so if you have to type something, type it fast even if you dont have to. Most people stop around 70wpm or less because typing speed isnt a limiting factor in anything they do.

Okay, I'll be blunt:
I'm not rich, I want a new mech keyboard other than a gifted Razer (Green switch) keyboard which is on its' way out.
I have no clue what I'd want, mostly just clicky switches, backlighting for some late nights when I'm screwing around, but I don't want to break the bank.
I live in Australia, so importing something from Corsair's (example) website is going to fuck it hard for the price, even if they have a good sale.
If any anons would be keen on helping out, I'd appreciate it very much.

This is pretty much the same for me. Just started learning the 'proper way' to type using the home row and all that. Got my first clack and some blank keycaps as well to motivate me.

Also type with around 90 wpm with my old non-home row and not using all fingers method of touch typing. Also around 50 wpm when doing it correctly.

tfw I posted some time ago for help about my Ducky One on leddit's sub about mech keyboards (a led stopped working and I didn't know where to ask for assistance since I imported it from US) and they said "you could think twice before buying a 100 $ keyboard from an unknown brand".

Yeah the funny thing is that for them everything which wasn't Razer or Corsair or other super-mainstream brands was "unknown". I mean, I'm japanese so I don't really know about stores in the US, but everyone who's willing to buy something niche as a mechanical keyboard in my opinion should look up the web and find out websites like mechanicalkeyboards.com where you find out about these brands which give you better choices which can fit your needs more.

Yeah, that part about Razer switches is quite objective, but in general I got the feeling that they were more for the big brands, even if not for Razer in the specific. They seemed quite Corsair/CM/Logitech fans.

if you read most posts people make about recommended keyboards, people only make concessions to CM for its cheap entry price. Even then you'll see most people recommend keebs like the MagicForce68 or TADA on there over the big name brands for entry stuff.

This is somewhat true. They are quite accepting of Corsair boards despite the fact that they are closer to Razer (which it is a big meme for them to hate on) in quality and price. The Logitech G710 is a popular entry-level board due to price, though the romer-g nonsense isn't often recommended. CM boards are popular even here as basic and decently-built, depending on the model.

That said, they'll still accept the chinkshit boards, though I don't see too many of them interested in ordering from Taobao or even Aliexpress.

That's it. They love Corsair so much bt honestly a friend of mine got one (was it K95?) and he got like 4 malfunctioning leds after only 1 month of use (and they said I was foolish by buying the ducky lol), and also Logitechs have those Romer G which are very bad, I hate Reds and Browns and those ones were even sloppier when I tried some out in a store.
I feel like they only hate on Razer because it's the meme one but as I said they still are more fans of the big brands.

Good for them anyway, my ducky serves great and I'm happy with it (even though it still has the broken led on del button because I had to send it back to US to my expense for a replacement and it was expensive so I lived with it)

I'd take an Ajazz, cause of the, I believe, better Zorro switches. I don't remember if it has any non-standard key sizes, though. The Drevo however is using the same design and board as most Chinese tenkeyless keyboards, so there should be no issue with keycaps.

Also both have non-standard keys, FC660 layout has a 1u key on the bottom row and a 2.25u right shift, TADA68 has three 1u keys on the bottom row, 1.75u right shift and I think 2 non-standard row keys on the far right column.
