So whats the main difference between Blacks and Reds? I'm trying to figure out what switch I want on my next keyboard

blacks are heavier then reds. thats all

>>60106526
Reds are lighter, has fewer grams required of actuation force than the blacks. Blacks have a "wholier" sound, a thicker sound. Both are linear, some say that blacks causes fatigue in fingers and hands but i dont actually notice.
I find blacks fantastic, and red shouldn't be very different. If you've got weak fingers you should consider red switches. I chose black merely because of sound and feel. They feel somewhat sturdier.

Most rubber domes are 2kro and people play games just fine, also modifiers don't count towards the limit, and depending on how the matrix is designed certain 3-5 key clusters can register. For example on my model M I can register all keys on the left side, except for S and X.

My entry-level board was a rosewill with MX blacks that cost around $90 back then. I guess you can still get the RK-9000BL, but it would be terrible value these days.

On the other hand, my unicomp model M cost $85 3 years ago and hasn't changed in price, and I'd still consider it a very decent value.

I'd say that, in addition to the larger number of cherry-compatible switches and caps, the greater acessibility of laser cutting over the past couple years has brought about some great DIY case options.

My first board was a cherry mx board 3.0 with browns, with the wrist rest it was 80 bucks. It's funny to think back of how I thought it was absurd to pay seventy bucks for a keyboard back when I bought it. My model m was 120 bucks with shipping, nearly half of that price being the damn shipping, I think the most I spent on a board so far was my shine 4 which I sold recently, with the import costs and shipping and doubleshot translucent pbt caps I got for it, it totals somewhere around 300 bucks.

I haven't tried anything in the direction of laser cutting yet, though I probably will once I get on to making some custom layout. I'm not a massive fan of sandwich-style cases, though alas, I am currently in the process of making one myself.

Ducky is one of the biggest mech sellers in the world, and are the only ones that have a dedicated nordic store called Ducky Nordic. That way if something goes wrong support channels are right next door. As far as their keyboards go they are verry solid and actually listen to the community and improve. The shine 3 for example was a piece of shit LED problems. The shine 4 used higher quality LEDs similar to corsair, then the shine 5 improved it even further while costing the same. Their new keyboards have steel construction solid polymers and keycaps that are on a whole other level compared to corsair and logitech. Plus they have nifty features like nkro over usb and programmable media keys and macros while having a mimimalistic look.

I've got one, it's pretty sweet but my membrane started fucking up after about 3 years of heavy use. (The 5 key and occasionally 'b' or something close don't register consistently). This seems to be a pretty rare occurrence, so it's kind of annoying that it happened to me. Fortunately, you can buy a new membrane for $10, but I haven't gotten around to doing that yet.

Anyway, that's my one complaint about it. Otherwise, it was great to type on and it's still clicky, heavy, and has nice caps. I'd buy a new unicomp over an old model M caked with cat hair and cigarette ash any day.

This really isn't the case. The build quality, apart from the weight, is fairly sub-par compared to modern mechanical keyboards. You can easily get something fullsize with an aluminum case for the same price. (I'd still say the unicomp's a good deal, but even I'd admit the case wasn't anything special). Not that it matters much since keyboard problems basically never stem from the case. If you're getting a model M, you should be buying it knowing full well that you're getting something for typing, not aesthetics or fancy features.

For sure, but I haven't used many other switch types for nearly as long. I like it more than MX blues and definitely more than MX browns.

pretty much. i already have memeboards to shitpost with see>>60114317 so sacrificing aesthetics for THE tactile keyboard is not an issue.
although keycap customization is nice, a mx tactile switch keyboard just aren't very good at producing tactile feedback im afraid.

here is a comparison between MX Clear and Buckling Spring

Clear is much more drawn out and not as nearly as succinct as the Buckling Spring.
but even the duration and intensity of tactility are preferential matters which can be debated

I bought the silver one and regret it. You're going to end up replacing the keycaps, so unless you are a supreme patrician and have 0 plans to buy new caps get the black version. The base looks nice with just about every set of caps, even white ones. The silver just doesn't look very good irl.

what's better, MX blues or Gateron Blues, currently have a full keyboard of reds , I got this keyboard for free and I absolutely hate reds but free is free, ive been modding it little by little and I got a switch tester and after I bought new LEDs for it and soldered them in (it had over 30 dead white LEDs and I bought blue chink LEDs and made a stripe pattern) I like blues the best and eventually got bored and soldered in the switches from the switch tester, The different feels for it is very nice (put them on keys commonly pressed like Shift and enter and space etc)

All keycaps will work with a backlight, but the light won't shine through the center of them. It would be like pic related. As far as switches go I went with cherry blues and I'm enjoying them. They are medium weight switches with a loud click. The tactile feedback on them is okay, but if you don't like how the sound then consider gateron browns. Personally I don't like linear switches, but maybe you do. Since these keyboards are so cheap, and you are ordering from amazon you could buy several then return the ones you don't like.

Linear switches means there is no tactile feedback. Rubber domes are tactile for comparison. Clicky switches just mean that there is an audible click in addition to the tactile feedback. I'd recommend you walk into a big box store and at least try out the blues, browns, and reds that most of them have. If you think they are too light then consider getting heavier switches. If you think they are too heavy then there are lighter ones.

depends on your budget. the $39.98 ones, labeled as with "Brown Switch", "Blue Switch", etc, are non-back lit and use OUTEMU brand switches. the perimeter of the aluminum top housing is also not shiny in these ones.
the $62.99 ones are what i recommend since they are single colored back-lit, have shiny edges, and use Gateron switches. Gateron makes the smoothest mx linear switches right now. good for gaymen.
