First time I've seen a board where the num lock key seems to make sense (I'm assuming it switches between the arrow keys acting as arrows and numbers). Looks pretty good honestly.

And, adding to this, I'd actually slightly prefer costar stabilizers, since I'll need to be able to hack them apart somehow so I can mount them in a 5mm acrylic plate.

Hey man you're the guy that linked me my current keycaps I thiink. I posted a couple pics and opinions like 3 or 4 threads ago. They're really good for the money. I want the ones in your picture with the white legends next I think.
Really nice, I love the boards that are bezel-less with just the plate like that and the cable looks good. The mixed up keycaps are triggering me a bit but I don't have great taste.

Anyway, Coolermaster just announced this board. It uses some weird switch but the important thing is no branding except on the keycaps. I know most of us dislike big brands like corsair, cooler master, razer, etc but this is a really nice board for a big brand. I hope it starts a trend because I would have no problem buying it. Do you guys think it's nice?

Do you know what smd means? Cause I don't think you do. Smd means surface mounted diodes, or LEds mounted on a PCB.

>> No.60285276

He's talking about 3-pin and 5-pin switches, which most of the western mech community have taken to calling "plate mount" and "PCB mount" switches respectively, despite the fact that you can use each switch for either. The only thing ever preventing you from using 5-pin switches is PCBs without the holes for the two extra anchoring pins.

>> No.60285309

yes I know that. I was a bit wrong with my wording but the thing is that I want led on the pcb to uethe full potential of my switches. I dont like led on swtiches since the light isn't diffused enough.

Because it is a keyboard that is meant to be rack mounted.

make sure it's actually the switch that's inconsistent. remove the keycaps and test them so the acoustics don't fool you too much. i thought mine were a bit inconsistent at first but now i don't have any problem with them at all. non-clicky switches will still be "inconsistent" (different keys sounding different) if you try and look for it.

That's accurate pricing sadly. Cherry only makes clears and greens in low volume by special request and that costs a hefty premium.
