It's built better than literally any other keyboard out there, fully programmable, and weighs like 5KG. I'd choose it over any of my other boards.
Maybe you should buy one instead of thinking you've reached 'end game' because you own a hhkb or something.

>> No.59986585

Serious question, why do you care about weight? I've always wondered why Korean custom fags jack off over heavy keyboards so much but they won't tell me

>> No.59986629

It's a good indicator that the board is built like a tank.
My hhkb for example weighs very little and it'll make a slight creeking sound if you try to flex it where as my model m's or f's that weigh a lot more wont flex creek at all.

>> No.59986765

that's just because hhkb is a meme

>> No.59986906

It's not always accurate though, my RS68 is heavier than my WKL board because of its full metal case, but the build quality is lower and it has way more flex because of the thin plate and the PCB only being supported by a handful of spread out screw posts.

It is. Closes on the 30th, although he said he was going to close it months ago.

It's too rare to have a standard name. My coworker has that board and likes it a lot. I'd probably pick one up if it was fully programmable.

Your best bet is probably buying one, desoldering the stock and putting in the ones you want.

Looks pretty nice, but I'm happy with my Tada68, and I hate DSA profile.

>> No.59988971


if someone wants to make a new 75% it should use as standard keys as possible. top row same as choc mini. 2x1.25u to the right of spacebar (or 2x1.5u or 3x1.0u options) and 1.25u right shift (1.75u option). this leaves a 0.5u gap at the arrow keys but it's ok. boom any keyset will fit especially with blanks or if you aren't too picky about the legends.

I picked up my realforce on eBay, $175 for basically unused beige tkl 55g

No reason to pay extra for a new board.

>> No.59992383

Part of the cost is due to the design. The rubber sheet has to match the PCB, versus being able to produce a mass of switches which can be soldered on after the fact. So there is less flexibility/reusability of topre components vs MX.

I could envision a rapid price drop if the rubber sheet became somewhat standardized among different cases, but that's currently not the case.

My 65g Zealios are no louder than my neighbours' OEM dome boards. This is because I don't hammer on my keys and barely bottom out. If I went all-out it would be quite loud.

I created a programming layout for qwerty (pic related).
Some interesting stuff: The number row is now primarily for symbols, numbers can be accesses with shifts.
The most common symbols for C/C++ programming are now index,middle and ring finger away, parenthesis lefts and rights are on different hands.
Caps Lock brings back the default qwerty layout.

Well, the symbol layout on ANSI is less then optimal though. Simple () parenthesis should be the most reachable, then {}, then []. It's bullshit. Also most relevant symbols are on the right pinky. I think there is room for a better layout. At least for a more comfy one.

You should try out some switches to see which ones feel good to you before anything. After that, try looking into filco, das, ducky and poker. Filco and das have some good full size keyboards, poker has a nice offering for a smaller form factor and ducky has led backlit keyboards that look great.

- not everyone likes smooth switches. A little grittiness probably benefits most people's typing accuracy.

- 50 million my ass. These switches have not been through an exhaustive test of this nature. Sure, similar switches from Gateron/Otemu/RandomChineseFactory MAY have been, but these have definitely not. There is a reason high tactility Cherry switches like Clears only have a 20 million keystroke rating...AND if you're soldering them yourself by hand in some enthusiast backplate, there is no way you won't have chattering switches.

And why would you buy anything from Originative? Sherry has a history of being a swindler, these switches yet another example.

Wow, sell that fast, it's ugly. How long before an imaginary elf language falls from the height of ultra-basement-dweller pop culture anyway?

Sell the fuck out of it if you don't use it, what kind of question is that?

sell it especially since you're not using it anyway. for $300 you can get a whole new keyboard or whatever

My Masterkeys S arrived and these silver switches are an absolute gem to type on.

Coming from a Cherry clear. I might be converted to linears because of this. It's so light and nice.

If Cherry's texture is so well engineered, why are Cherry browns such hot garbage when Gateron browns are some of the best feeling switches?

>> No.60016180

That's a lie, all browns are garbage.

>> No.60016218

Mate, Gateron browns are fantastic. They're a lot more tactile than Cherry's. They're basically lighter Cherry MX clears, which is good.

Sure anon, you enjoy your polished turds then.

At least they're not grainy turds.
