Then an 80% is more your drift.

Recommend the James Donkey gaterons or Rantopad MXX if you are on a budget. Both have brown models (rantopad's brown model is more expensive though) and blue models.

I would actually recommend getting a 80% keyboard cause of space and portability.

Fuck me, I'm dumb.

>> No.59610545

Browns require the same amount of force as reds, both for actuation and bottoming out, with the only difference being the tactile bump you get right when it actuates. If you like how browns feel but want something heavier, you should look for clears, but if you just want something heavier than reds, that being a linear switch with no tactile bump, but heavier, then look for blacks.

Not him, but I do have a full size Ducky One with PBT keycaps. The keyboard is sold. The thing that surprised my the most was how heavy it is. The steel plate is solid and would only flex if I really applied a lot of force to it. I've dropped the keyboard a couple times and there are no cracks and it works just fine. Its got nkro over USB and if you OS doesn't support it for some reason then you can switch to 6kro with the dip switches on the back. The other dip switches change the position of the FN key on the bottom row. They keyboard isn't fully programmable, but it does comes with rebindable media keys, macros, as well as three function layers. The manual does a terrible job at explaining how to program them so I'd suggest to look up some of the several guides on youtube and reddit. Personally I set some of the media on my numpad on layer two. I though in order to execute theses macros I had to hold FN + the macro key I set. Turns out tho you don't and all what you need to do is just press the button the macro was set too. It tripped me up when I was entering numbers into excel and I was pausing, skipping, or rewinding my songs. It also has mouse emulation, which the only use I found for it is in 1 game where you needed precise mouse control, which was easy thanks to the finer control of a keyboard. As for the PBT keycaps they feel nicer and softer to the touch and after spending some time with them I can never go back to ABS. Since they are dye-subbed it means the legends are burned into the keycap becoming a permanent part of it and as such will never wear off. This also means that you can't feel the legends which makes them even smoother. Plus PBT is much more resistant to wear and will never yellow like those old keyboards, unlike ABS. Now there are some things I don't like, such as the lack of software as programming everything has to be done manually. Also the manual is terrible.

The biggest issue however might be the quality control. After about a week one of the keycaps began to fade. This didn't make sense as the keyboard is dye-sub PBT, which shouldn't happen. After looking around online I found out that if dye-sub PBT is left out in the sun it will bleach over time, and that this is a common issue on Ducky keyboards. This is most likely a quality control issue as so far only 1 key has been effected, and its not a common one like Enter, W, A or D. I hope you can see it with pic related. I don't care since its only one key, but I thing you should know about this. There doubleshot keycaps don't have this problem

how short do you want? Regular cherry switches are 4mm of total travel, while romer g is 3mm. there are even shorter switches at 2mm. Or you can get a switch with a high actuation point, then shorten it with o-rings. For example cherry switches actuate at 2mm, so you can use o-rings to shorten the total travel to say 2.5mm. Some switches actuate at 1.1mm so with o-rings you can bring down the travel distance to 1.5mm
