Too unfocused.

It's trying to be a normie gamer board with hot swap and rgb backlighting, while also being an enthusiast board with full programming and a lack of gamer aesthetic.

So you end up with a $200 keyboard that most normies will look at and go "why would I pay that much when corsair exists and looks cooler???" and a decent chunk of enthusiasts will look at and go "ew costar stabs i can't tune and why am i paying for shitty kailh switches and tai-hao keycaps???".

>> No.60384862

They got cherry stabs and the kailh switches are supposedly the best of the knock offs. I anxious to see what the 3rd custom switch they plan to offer. I will agree though, the tai-hao caps are garbage even if they are PBT.

do you plan on designing an alu case for this as well? seems like a neat project.

>> No.60384996

I'm currently working on the board layout. Once its done I'll take it any my plate and throw them into autoCAD and then design a case that the plate sits on and screws in. I'll most likely make it out of either aluminum or steel.

I'll probably make a few prototypes first before actually spending the extra money on ergo-clears and stabilizers. I'm hoping to learn about the fab processs. Maybe I'll start a little business or something. As it stands my design is 100-keys so it certainly sounds nice.

>> No.60385072

is there a better material for keyboard keys than plastic?

>> No.60385230

I wonder. We can rule out wood or stone straight away due to basically requiring milling, I'd say. Cast metal might be as easy and possibly cheap as injection molded plastic, but I'm not sure how you'd do legends? Stamp them in afterwards, have molds for each cap with raised legends, or some kind of double-cast system where you use two different metals with sufficiently different melting points so that casting the cap doesn't mess with the legend? I don't think stamped metal would be possible because of the stem, and welding a stem on after stamping the main cap from would be too complex probably.

There's probably a reason mass production of keycaps is done with injection molded plastic.

>> No.60385272

PBT keys will last years with only minor wear. The only thing that I say you might gain from changing materials is the feeling when it hits the plate of the keyboard. I've heard that even between ABS and PBT, certain backplate materials that can make the keys feel better.

I think the plum iis the new choc mini. Noppoo's store has no products available for sale and the stock of their keyboards that was on newegg, amazon, etc is just about gone.
If you look at the plum it IS a choc mini. The same tooling was used to make iit. The legends are the same and in the same position, the branding is in the same spot on the space bar.
Anyway if that guy wants to change keycaps I would stay away from the choc. The keycaps it comes with are all larger than standard so if you replace them there is more room between the keys than there should be. It's very slight but it's there. Pic related.

My enjoypbt caps arrived yesterday, and I stuck them on my old rosewill board. Also, they did come with a keypuller, even though some anon in a previous thread said that they didn't.

The caps look awesome, except my numpad +, numpad enter, and left shift are slightly warped. The numpad enter and left shift are manageable, but the numpad + will totally stick down if I press it. Super disappointing given the cost of these things.

Has anyone here done anything to de-warp PBT caps? I've been reading online that you can possibly heat them up in some hot water, then try to bend them back into the right shape, or weigh them down on a flat surface. Are there any risks to doing that, seeing as how at least one of the caps is already unusable?

I have some:
Don't drink next to your keyboard
Suicide is always an option
Consider distilled water instead
Also use a needle to make sure the water/alcohol gets into the switch, and mash it a few times
If it doesn't work then desolder the switch and replace it with a new one.
If that doesn't then get a new keyboard

Hey guys, quick question; currently on a rubberdome board (Microsoft Sidewinder X4), I think its slowly starting to give way after many good years of service.
Saw an ad on Facebook promoting three keyboards.
One looks like a no-name and has very little details, so I'm ignoring it.
The other two are:
>Razer Blackwidow Chroma Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
> Corsair Gaming STRAFE RGB Cherry MX Blue Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Is Razers mech switches any good? Or is it all just PR speak and memes? I know Razer is gamer shit but its potentially okay, right?
The Corsair board is using blue switches, which looking up on google, might not be ideal. I also don't like the fact that WASD sticks out so much, looks really tacky IMO. At least with the Razer board, I can turn off the LED's and have it look less tacky.

Anyone mind helping out a poor pleb who has no mech keyboard experiences to fall back on? If I could, I would just google it - but its all about preference and experience, so coming to you lot seems like the best idea.
Link to the website selling it in case anyone is wondering about extra details; https://www.overclockers.co.uk/peripherals/input-devices/keyboards?stockids=KB-086-CS,KB-066-ST,KB-092-RA

How are blue switches for general gaming? Looking at it, a lot of "gaming" motherboards actually have them so that makes me wonder if the red switches are only for the LEL E-SPORTS crowd who demand that slight difference for something like CS:GO.

ABS will melt, while PBT won't. Using a dye is nice since it gives it a nice and even coating without any blemishes. If the keycaps use dye-subing then the legends will still show, unlike plastidip

A good tray will make sure that your keyboard is at elbow level, and tilted slightly away from your wrists. Basic ergonomic desks that do this cost between 200-300 bucks. There are chink ones for half the price, but I've had the arms break twice on them

Sorry this lazboy is just too comfy to sit on. I ain't switching. I switched my setup so it looks like this and it's the most comfortable I've ever been while at a computer. Spending $200 bucks on a desk might seem like a lot compared to a $40 staples one, but its well worth it. Heck you're in a general where people spend that much on a keyboard.

>> No.60417581

most keyboard trays are flat or slanted toward you (because of the cheap construction) but sure if it's slanted away from you it seems legit i just don't see how you'd use a mouse on a non-level surface
>inb4 "i don't use a mouse"
>inb4 "i keep the mouse on the desk 4+ inches above the keyboard tray"

>> No.60417694

Friction keeps the mouse in place and I just use that free mouse pad from when they were doing those a long time ago. I can see if you got a keyboard with a high incline or tall keycaps that might be a problem, but my g80 sits just fine.

>> No.60418053

I like the flat keyboard tray so the mouse isn't impeded. It's better to put the keyboard itself at a negative tilt, though not many have that built in (like the Matias Ergo Pro).

Don't fall for the K70 RGB meme. It's a waste of money. I had at least 1 dozen LEDs go bad on me. Corsair told me to send it back to them to be replaced. I had to pay for shipping to send it back and now they are telling me they won't accept it and want me to pay for it to be shipped back to me.
Their reason for not accepting is "NO/MISSING WARRANTY SERIAL LABEL". However, I have not removed anything from my keyboard, incurred physical damage to it, or modified it in any way. The only possible way it could be missing a serial label is if they failed to put it there in the first place. Fuck Corsair. I will never purchase anything with their brand name on it again.
