I've had


for a few years now. It still functions pretty alright.

Is it considered to be an acceptable keyboard?

>> No.60418830

Its a rebranded Filco, which means you can replace the controller to make it programmable.
You have two options. Either the Frosty Flake, or the Voice of Reason

>> No.60418845

Up to $300


>Preferred switch type
What's best for typing. I'd like buckling spring, but I hear that Unicomp has poor QA. So I guess greens.


>Form Factor
Full, or TKL. Either is fine. TKL would probably be best.

Is there one best for night typing, like f.lux, but for keyboards? If no, then no backlight.

>Current keyboard
Whatever chiclet keyboard is on this laptop.

I also prefer PBT keys.

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.

Programmable? Why?

It functions as a keyboard, is there something wrong with that?

Not trying to intentionally sound like an idiot here when I ask this.

>> No.60419005

want to go for the topre meme? you can get a realforce or a topre leopold for that price. they both come with PBT keycaps.
otherwise, something with cherry clears is nice for typing but they're harder to find than the usual cherry switches.

with a fully programmable keyboard there's a lot of potential for rebinding keys, such as moving escape to caps lock (for vim), etc. You don't have to rely on software like autohotkey.

>> No.60419006

To do whatever you want. My keyboard is already programmable so I set a function layer to have a numpad that I can use for alt codes, despite being a TKL. I also made it so that the F keys are actually dedicated media keys. If for some reason I need them I can quickly switch the layer. I also have a few macros set for trading in mmos on that layer. It makes trading a whole lot easier.

The LEDs ruin it.

The keys were pretty bad but if you replaced the black plastic outside case of the keyboard as well with another you could've stayed on theme.

But then the LEDs? Just. God. It's ugly. So ugly. Not the good kind of ugly either that's aesthetic, that's just non-ironically ugly.

Because you're imagining shit and falling prey to confirmation bias.

If you sit there stabbing at the keys like a butcher at snail's pace and you're just enamored with the idea of there being springs under the keycaps, you're *imagining shit* bro. It could be anything else that the hivemind convinced you must "feel good". I can very easily imagine it being the other way around - mechanical keyboards never went out of style and they recently came out with rubber domes. There would be keeb nerds orgasming into a coma and insisting everyone should jump ship on mechanicals and hop onto the rubber train.

>You're the one attributing skill to the kind of keyboard one buys, not me. For me it's about the time spent using it.
How about you convince me there is something inherently better about that "tactile feedback" and sounds of trench warfare? Oh you just like it better - dude, if it was made for you, you'd be able to tell why it's better. It's not though.

If you're a slow typist many of the properties of a mech keyboard just have limited utility for you.
Tactile/audible feedback and mid-travel actuation won't help you speed up much comparatively if you aren't fast enough to already have your next finger in position during the prior keystroke.
Every time you press a rubber dome key you bottom out with much more than the actuation force, by virtue of the dome's resistance disappearing when it collapses. You do that long enough and fast enough and it can lead to RSI in the form of tendonitis. Mech keys resist more as you get closer to bottoming out, effectively braking the impact, and if you use ones with feedback you can lessen it further by reaction or even avoid bottoming out entirely.

You guys do know how to type at least like 90 wpm right? It's trivial even with out proper form. If you use your computer at all you should be able to.
I've been using a computer 10+ hours a day for about 13 years now, since I was 12 and never took a typing class, it's just something you pick up.
My thing is that they just don't use the fucking keyboard. If you use your computer regularly you'll be able to type 100 wpm without much effort.

Are there any keyboard with a big ass enter key like pic related?
Literally all I can find is dick sized ansi shit and ISO, which admittedly isn't that bad. But I'd really want this.

>> No.60440585


You think you want that, but I've only ever seen one big ass enter keyboard with a normal sized backspace. You're gonna hate clit sized backspace a lot more than dick sized enter.

>> No.60440596

steel series 6gv2 and 7g

I've been using this layout for a long time on my current rubber dome.
It's the best layout there is.
I always miss the enter key on ansi

What kind of a fucking company name is "steel series" anyway. Series of what? Products? Why are their products not made out of steel then?

>> No.60440644

Nice. Now go be pretentious somewhere else.

>> No.60440649


You get used to it. Better get used to that ANSI layout so you can meme effectively. Big ass enter keycap can be hard to find.

>> No.60440659

Their keyboards have a steel plate in them, but they are out dated. Back then if you want a nice keyboard steel series was one of your options, but now they're lacking when compared to the competition.

He makes perfect sense, you know. The least you can do is learn to type so you don't look like an idiot while you meme your board across various internet hugboxes.

>> No.60440690


It's kinda sad when you stick with a name like that but then proceed to release plastic shit. If I were them, I'd meme out a steel Sensei, should weigh at least a kilo. Somebody's gonna buy it anyway, I mean, people did buy the original Sensei which is equally stupid.

>> No.60440757

The 7g looks okay. the only problem with the layout is super modifier missing on the left
I'm not sure about the switches though

You make a reasonable argument, but I'm not planning to change the keycaps
Maybe I go with ansi after all

if you can find one of their merc keyboards then you could get one since those sell for several hundred dollars

>If you sit there stabbing at the keys like a butcher at snail's pace and you're just enamored with the idea of there being springs under the keycaps, you're *imagining shit* bro.
None of this is true. I'm not excited that there are springs (I'm using a novatouch right now for heaven's sake), and I'm not hunt-and-pecking either.

>Oh you just like it better - dude, if it was made for you, you'd be able to tell why it's better.
I could, yes. Do you want me to explain why I like my novatouch over some HP OEM board? The stroke is smoother, it doesn't have that lazy squish at the bottom, there is much less wobble, it's more consistent, etc.

>specialized tools are for specialists
It's just a fucking keyboard my man. What specialisation are we talking about here?

>And this right here is the entire point. You nerds lack the imagination to spend your money better...
Again, you presume too much. I'm not into any of those other "hobbies" (I don't consider my mech enthusiasm much of a hobby).

I type at 60WPM, of course I'm not getting all that I can out of a keyboard. I'm not denying this.

>> No.60440998

Around $100, maybe a bit more


>Preferred switch type
Would like tactile, non-clicky, and low or medium resistance. So something like brown or clear cherry.


>Form factor
Full or Tenkeyless

Just enough to see what I'm typing in the dark would be nice

Except how would you know they type like shit? And even if they showed off some nice board with shitty typing, who the fuck cares? They could be the type of person to buy something so they get more involved in the hobby, like buying a nice instrument instead of a rental so they commit to learning music theory. Either way its an implication and doesn't matter.

it's a tough choice but imo go with the plastic case and keep the $60 in case you want to spend it on keycaps
