So I was looking through the FAQ and saw the section on PS/2 vs USB, and I was wondering how you find keyboards with PS/2 (inb4 you don't). Is there a cord you can use to change USB into PS/2 without getting any of the drawbacks of USB? And if I wanted something retardedly specific like a 66 key topre PS/2 keyboard do any companies make custom boards with every one of those things?

And then I should also ask, when various people say, "Topre is one of the best switches around" are there actually stupidly expensive experimental switches you can buy or are they just saying everyone has their own opinion on what is best?

Kek, I was joking.

I've just been ridiculously busy as of the past few months, and will continue to be for at least another few months, so I don't have that much time to work on this kind of stuff, hence I just do it when I have the rather than when I'm in a good state to do so.
Not to say I'm not enjoying myself, I'm having the time of my life.

Pic related, this piece of wood cost 65 cents.

>> No.59510714

So I got curious how I would go about transforming a nice rubber dome keyboard into a great mechanical one. First things first I would need 107 switches for a standard Hungarian layout. Do cherry mx switches really cost $1 each even in bulk? It would cost $107 only for the switches...
Are there a cheaper way to get mechanical switches? They don't have to be brand new? Should I get used keyboards?

>> No.59510771

if you absolutely need cherry switches then its better to get some used g80 for 5-10 bucks. Though why not just buy a mech keyboard since you really can't transform a rubberdome into a mech. You can pick up the superior gateron switches for as low as 31 cents tho

>you really can't transform a rubberdome into a mech
Why is that?
What makes it impossible to reuse the casing. Yeah I see how keycaps could be a problem though, but some 3D printing could help to make them compatible with the switches.

Anyway I would only want a mechanical, not too loud, classical looking keyboard (standard layout, no backlight bullshit, no custom keycap bullshit, nice looking fonts). It doesn't seem to exist, every mechanical keyboard I see look hipster or gamer. Also requiring Hungarian layout makes thinks harder still.

Pic very related, I want this but mechanical.

Have a look at the following:

Leopold fc900
Filco majestouch 2 ( probably out of budget)
Ducky one / zero (there are non led, basic black versions)

>> No.59511087

the biggest problem would be the profile of the switches compared to the rubber dome, which would look like ass. But why not get a g80 with a Hungarian layout? That way you can get the switches and keycaps to match.

Why not get a Hungarian g80-3000? Its expensive tho at almost $150 bucks for a brand new one. For that price I would buy a rosewill for 80 bucks, then get some PBT Hungarian keycaps for another 80. If you can find one used then that would be better. I've seen the German ones go as low as 10 bucks.

They're so good for me that this is my second one. My first one is the black model with cherry reds but it's being held hostage by a deranged uncle.
I don't think it's programmable. The features that are important to me on it:
1. Hardware switch control and capslock
2. Left ccontrol size and position. I switch it with capslock and then bind "capslock" to push to talk so all I have to do is slightly lower my palm to engage PTT. This is very important to me.
3. PBT caps are nice.
4. IMO this layout is optimal. It's small on my desk which is important to me because I need my mouse hand closer to my keyboard hand or my coordination suffers.
5. The in-line function keys are great for games like WoW with keybinds because they are easier to reach with out moving your hand

Spend the extra on a cherry version instead of one with the noppoo switches. My first one had cherry reds(which i cant even tolerate anymore) and it had no key chatter problems. My current one has noppoo blue switches and while they feel 10000x better than reds and aren't even loud they have bad key chatter for some reason. If this is a result of the noppoo switch or the fact that it's a blue switch I don't know but it's annoying as fuck. I currently use kcfix to deal with it.
