so you're not the anon who got it with gaterons, you got it with noppoo switches? i haven't had any chattering problems with my noppoo blues. but see if you can fix the chattering with the Fn+10 and Fn+11 debounce settings.

>I had the strangest problem with my noppoo choc mini today. I found that when I typed two of the same character in a row, e.g. 'e' in deer, the second letter wouldn't register unless I typed deliberately slower. So I every time I typed hello it would come out helo, deer would become der, etc, quite frustrating. Turns out I had played with Fn+F11, didn't see any feedback and thought nothing of it. I randomly decided to play with these mysterious keys again, and sure enough tapping Fn+F10 a few times made the problem disappear.
https://geekhack
.org/index.php?topic=40591.0

>Debounce helps this problem by allowing the keyboard to take all inputs from within a set time frame, and register it only as a single press. Inherently a necessary solution, but in some cases the default time intervals might be too short (double presses), or too long (reduced input rate due to clustering too many inputs into one).
>Fn and F10/F11 either increase or decrease the debounce on the keyboard, enabling you to adjust for keys that might be double tapping or if you're particularly insane/sensitive, the ability to adjust the debounce down to increase your WPM/APM.

I'm not sure why you'd want to get the most expensive one, those wire keypullers are all the same.
That being said, I remember seeing one with a wooden handle on maxkeyboards, and one with a metal handle that shows up on assdrop every so often.

Benefits:
The nice thing about mechanical keyboards is that you can fine tune them to your liking. Do you wan't a mechanical keyboard thats quieter then a rubber dome, then get one. Do you prefer heavy tactile switches, well then get one. Or do you enjoy no tactile fedback, and want smooth operation, then get one. Rubber domes are usually a medium weight switch, so if you want something lighter or heavier get a mech.
Mechanical keyboards are much more durability. I've had several rubberdomes over the years and they always end up as mushy shit, and feel like ass to type on. My model m is over 30 years old and it still feels crisp to type on, unlike some of my rubber domes that are only 3-5 years old.
Cons: Cost
You can get some mechanical keyboards for under 30 bucks, but your options will be very limited. That really is the biggest problem with mechs, cause a mid range keyboard would cost $80-100

The only switch I find incredibly comfortable to use is the model f capacitive buckling spring.
I can use and enjoy any other switch out there, but that one is pretty much perfect.

The guy is just being a little bitch honestly. The keyboard in your picture has between 45g and 60g actuation force depending on the key, no different or lighter than the blues. And that's "light touch" for a rubber dome. To me, blues are way too light. You can't even rest your fingers on the board without accidentally pressing stuff. I can't imagine someone saying they get tired from that with a straight face.

Mechanical keyboards in general just give you more options. Heavier, lighter, easier, harder, this layout or that layout. You can do whatever. It's the level of customization that people are after.

>Mechanical keyboards in general just give you more options
But if you're going for strain reduction, are lighter mechanical switches as useful as ergonomic designs like slanted/split boards, larger function keys, or smaller actuations?

You can get mechanicals in slanted and split ergonomic boards with larger function keys and smaller force actuation. You just have to imagine what it is you want out of a board and then go hunt it down.

the thing that makes membrane rubber dome keyboards disgusting is that you have to bottom out the switch for it to register a key press. this causes an awful lot of strain. mechanical keyboards have a higher activation point which means you don't have to punch your fingers with full force into the switch

Capacitive buckling spring is a lot lighter. It feels linear and extremely smooth up until the spring buckles, then you feel the vibration on your finger and hear the god tier pinging sound.
With Model M's, it's still a nice feel but the switch is heavier and less smooth.

Does anyone here have any experience in keyboard design? I've been reading up on firmware and microcontrollers specifically for keyboards. It seems simple enough to just wire your keys to a board and map them using software. Does anyone else here have any experience in this subject? Any specs or things to look out for in general? How may layers of PCB do keyboards typically use?

Oh! And on a side note, what are zealios? I've heard from others that they're nothing but "snake oil" but if they are what they claim to be (a tactile switch with activation between a brown and clear) then that sounds perfect for me seeing as I think my browns are too soft and my clears are fatiguing if I type for 3+ hours on them.

Hmmm... Ideally, my goal would be to make as small a footprint as possible while still adhering to 104 key standards. The biggest downside of going with nonstandard ~60% is paying through the ass for keycaps. As it stands, the ONLY key not standard in the this set is the spacebad at 6.5u instead of the 6.25u standard.

6.5u spacebars are harder to get than 1.75u shifts and 1u numpad 0 caps. That's why people recommend against Corsair so much, they insist on a 1.5-1-1.5-6.5-1.5-1-1-1.5 bottom row.
