I don't have a switch testing kit so I am truly not sure - but I went to best buy I tried out some mechs to just get the feel of the switches. I like blue but I can't have that noise and I dont want tolose the feel because of a ring or dampener. What feels tactile and responsive like blue but doesn't have the same loud click. This lead me to beleiving mx clears are my best bet.

The only thing to really compare it to is this.

Magicforce is about half the price, not as programmable (unless that's hidden in the manual, which I didn't bother opening), has keycaps with worse quality but a better profile, is a little bigger.

Vortex is much more expensive, better build quality, more programmable, has better keycaps but a worse profile, and is smaller.

I don't like the layout of either, but the Magicforce is really weird as >>59637331 pointed out. Also, if the point of a 40% is to be small, why does the Magicforce layout essentially add another column and only gain two keys?

The only reason to buy the Magicforce is the price, it is far cheaper than building your own.

The Vortex is not quite as programmable as I'd like, otherwise I'd buy it, even with that profile.

Ah, I would've assumed with the Pro they would've just stuck in a modified sear + sear spring or something.

I've never shot one before but my Shield with the Apex trigger I can put a 10 rnd group within a 3" circle at 15 yards rapid fire when i get warmed up.

<Possibly stupid question that I can't resolve>

Got the CMStorm Quickfire XT a year ago. Amazing keyboard which has developed a problem.
Basically, CTRL + ALT causes the PC to go to sleep in Windows 10. That means I can't use ctrl+alt+del either. For months I thought it was a software problem, something with the keybindings of Windows 10, but I couldn't find anything. Then I hooked up another keyboard on my PC and pressed CTRL + ALT and there was no problem.

Is either CTRL + ALT recognized as something else? I pressed both buttons individually and Windows sees them as CTRL and ALT respectively. Should I try thorough cleaning? Am I stuck with this?

/sqt/ never answers my question so I humbly come to you /mkg/. Thanks.

I compared tada's stock caps and my enjoyPBT. Tada is on right.

So what's the difference?

Tada68 uses enjoypbt keycaps, so there shouldn't be one.

I just pulled the trigger on pic related, a black pok3r with blue backlight. Cherry MX blues. How big of a mistake did I make /g/

What caps should I go for if I hate sound but want a bit of resistance as I'm typing? I write a lot.

>> No.59670761

do you mean switches? if so you should go with either tactile or linear grays

>> No.59670775

I'm worried that I should have gotten MX greens, is the difference in resistence super noticable between the two?

>> No.59671018

I have Topre and Alps boards and love the switches, and hate linears. Is there any Cherry switch I won't find horribly disappointing?

>> No.59671036

Oh and I also own a Model M and I like those switches, so no other buckling springs either.

Should I get a buckling meme from maasropp?

So I got a unicomp model M about 3 years ago, and now it doesn't register when I press space. Any advice on how to try to clean out the contact? Has anyone else had this issue.

At least I'm in the US so I only had to spend $85 on it, but that's still enough money to make me kind of upset that it's now not working.

>> No.59672331

Is it the Unicomp one? If you're in the US, I'm pretty sure they're already only $85 on their website.

I loved typing on mine, but I'm also the one who posted >>59672273, which was pretty disappointing to be completely honest.

Yeah I'm just wondering how 'good' buckling is, don't give me any 'its subjective' obviously I want opinions

>> No.59673165

Well BS are a unique typing experince since the tactile feedback and audible click happen at the exact moment of actuation, no other switch can do that, plus it has a fast reset time. The switches are heavy so if you prefer lighter switches you might not enjoy it. Also it really is loud.

>> No.59673187

Yeah about the heavy I'll be playing games and maybe holding down a heavy spring would get RSI

>> No.59673240

The weight isnt that big of a deal since they are lighter then cherry clears. Also you'd get rsi faster if you use a wrist rest then a switch thats only 15g heavier then a rubber dome

>> No.59673255

Ok nice
