My Ducky One came in the other day, I don't know if you guys remember but it's my first mechanical keyboard. So far I really like it, it's about everything i wanted and I really like the brown keys, though they are a tiny bit on the light side. I think it's just something I'll have to get used to. And I guess I can replace them if I want, right? You can just pull the switches out and put new ones in?

I would like a palm rest though, does anyone have any recommendations as far as that goes?

I just was at WASD's website and I am really considering ordering a custom keyboard there. However, I don't quite understand the configurator there - do I have to save the custom layout in order to actually get it (and register in that process) or is it carried along with the order? Because I hate registering anywhere, but I would love to have a keyboard with weird colors and shit.

What's wrong with that? I am not a regular in this general and I am far from being an obsessive mechanical keyboarder, so forgive me if I don't know all the brands by heart.

how's this idea for a 75% layout

>top row
same as choc mini

>right shift
1.25u

>bottom row
1.25+1.25+1.25+6.25+1.25+1.25u followed by a 0.25u gap and arrow keys

the arrow keys are offset by 0.25u like in pic related

this means you have perfect compatibility with almost all keycap sets especially with blanks (legends can be a little bit wrong like if you use menu key as right shift for example)

so no worries about 5.5u spacebars or non-standard modifiers or 1.5u esc etc

So it would look like this? It would still have a shorter right shift, but at least most keycaps sets, even those from tai-hao and gateron include it. Also it would be a 0.5u gap not .25u one.

Does anyone own a Drevo 84 or an AK33? Looking for your opinion it. I'm looking for a cheap replacement for my Noppo choc mini, I'm not willing to budge on the layout, it is the single most important thing to me. I figure I'll buy it with browns since I have reds and blues.
I intend to replace the stock keycaps with a simple low priced set, POM if I can find it as it's my favorite.
If you can suggest another board with the same in-line fkey format I'm open to it. I don't mind paying more if the keycaps are nice enough to not need replacement. Indifferent towards backlighting.

I'm thinking browns. I want something less loud but with some feedback. Will probably add o-rings
Black with a regular design is fine, most other designed keyboards just look ugly to me. Not too concerned with the keycaps as long as they feel good. I'll rub the letters off within a few months of use anyway if they aren't etched through

I love my choc but it's white and everything else I own is black. I could replace it's keys but then I need a keyset that works with the non-standard shift and space bar. Space bar being white, shift being gray. The only "feature" that is important to me is being able to switch capslock and control but I can do this in software too I think. $140 is definitely more than I want to spend because I can get 3d printed custom shift and space for like $35, so I figured I may as well just spend the bit extra on a different board and that way I'll also have a spare set of caps when I replace them.

I had originally planned to slowly replace my periphs and case with white but gave up because it would have cost a ton more money for the same shit. Bought a new monitor it was black, got a new mouse and it was black, my headphones are black, and then I gave up and went with an all black PC too. \

So I have a white choc mini and I want it to be black, at least the keys. i can figure out the case later.
I know, I'm retarded.

That doesn't look bad. If only there was a 75% version.
These small keyboards got me thinking. I wonder what it would be like to use a 60% keyboard, but with a numpad. With this design all but one of the keycaps are standard. The issue however is that the 2nd row down from the top is not staggered properly. The tab key needs to be .25u smaller, while the \| key needs to be .25u bigger. I opted to shift it by that amount that way everything remains standard. Now since this is still a standard 60% there shouldn't be any issues with case or plate designs. The problem however is that I can't find a PCB that will support this layout.

No but the older ones have very nice keyboards as far as laptops go. I also own a modern laptop from 2016 with chicklet keys and while it is not even close to as enjoyable as my gateron blue board to type on I actually type at almost 20wpm faster on it. I sit around 105wpm on my blues and 125-130 on the chicklet. Nothing modern has a better keyboard than the t420 series and before thinkpads. You can also install that superior keyboard into newer models although I am unsure of the specifics.
Doess anyone else find they actually type slower on their mechanical boards, even though it is far more enjoyable?

I've been using DSA Granite for almost exactly a year. They are probably slightly less textured than when I got them, but still feel pretty grainy.

Except for one part of the spacebar which has sorta smoothed out.

I'd say I had the same experience with Pok3r caps. Never smoothed out completely, but do become less textured with time. I don't know if they'll ever get completely smooth, especially not in 6 months.

So fucking smooth compared to cherry reds and especially browns. It's easy enough to determine when you've actuated the key, and the tactile feel is a subtle but noticable dip in force if you type lightly. With these thick o-rings I bottom out pretty much every key stroke if my arm is off angle.

No one really like high profile key caps all that much. They are a niche of a niche so they do cost a lot. SA keycaps sell between $100-180 for a full set and the chink knockoffs are only 30 bucks cheaper.

There is no use and unnatural to have the pinkies up on the QWERTY-row
Don't kid yourself otherwise

How is it minimal distance for your pinky having to shoot over three rows
It's literally not natural to move your hands so that the pinkies are on first row while you want to type the next letter on second or third with the ring finger

Then get a beep speak keyboard just to fuck with him.
O-rings are not a bad idea since they help dampen the sound. You can pick them for like a couple bucks from any hardware store, or if you have braces then dental bands will also fit.
