>full-size wasd v2 + gateron keycaps
I have this exact combination. (the keycaps are dye-subbed, but originally gateron)
keycap choice is solid. I am not sure why you cannot buy two-tones like white and grey, though. I thought that used to be an option.
if you don't need numpad, consider tenkeyless.
are you getting cherry greens or clears? if not, you can consider a cheaper board like the rosewill rk9000.
the keyboard is still nice but flexes due to being full-size. I would imagine the TKL version does not flex as much.
overall it's decent.

Yeah, I've decided to go with tenkeyless, since I don't use the numpad and it'll only make my mouse needlessly far away.
>are you getting cherry greens or clears?
I was gonna get either blue or browns.
wasd tenkeyless board is $95 with cherry blue by default, they ask for $15 more for clears and $25 for greens.
I don't know if they're worth the extra money.
I can't seem to find a rosewill tenkeyless board, do you know of any other cheaper tenkeyless barebones boards?

unfortunately there is no TKL equivalent of the rosewill rk9000. cooler master's old TKL boards are pretty decent, but I'm not sure if you'll be able to find them in stock anywhere.

I've heard good things about these, but haven't personally used them. browns, unfortunately, out of stock for the ducky and only 1 in stock for the ganss.

the wasd v2 is not bad especially if you're not getting full-size since it won't flex as much. pic related is personally my biggest gripe with it. I don't like how those sides poke out as it looks ugly and unncessary. also the cable routing feature is terrible.

I'd consider getting one of those, but I want blank keycaps (preferably colored as in pic related),
>I don't like how those sides poke out as it looks ugly and unncessary
Looks kinda nice imo.
I found this blank ducky https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=188
but I don't like the white keycaps and the lights on the caps lock and scroll lock.
It's one $135 and since the wasd board is $95, while the gateron keycaps in pic related are $40, it's not like I'd be saving some money by buying it.
I don't see any other options than a wasd tkl board and those gateron blank keycaps for now.

dye subbers are starting to do prints on the whole key and not just the legends, mainly so they can get white legends on pbt but they can do graphics too. this would be much higher quality than pad printing. but you would probably have to pay an arm and a leg to get them to make a custom anime set for you

hi /mkg/

I'm currently looking at various mechanical keyboards and I'd like to vent a bit.

Ducky, Collermaster, Gigabyte and Logitech all have the retarded right bottom row layout of [ALT] [Windows key] [FN] [Ctrl]. As a GNU/Linux user I use the Menu key to get the context menu all the time and I've never once used that windows key, it doesn't even do anything. I'd be fine with [ALT] [FN] [MENU][CTRL] but no, none of those brands make a keyboard that's not missing a rather important key.

And all Corsair keyboards have a retarded layout on the entire bottom row.

It's really annoying that there's basically no good mechanical keyboard for sale anywhere.

I'm thinking about grabbing the HyperX Alloy with blue switches or Ozone Strike Pro also blue switches.

The only mechanical keyboard I have is Corsair Strafe with brown switches(pic related) and It's fucking horrible.
I dunno if this is the fault of Corsair, the brown switches or my oversensitive ears but there's this weird "ping" noise as if you were hitting something metal with a nail or something when clicking some keys. Already shipped it back and the new one has the same issue but different keys are affected.
I'm going full typewriter so that even if the new one is fucked like that then at least I won't be able to hear it amidst the clicking.

Any alternatives to those two that are under $100, blue, full, backlit and possible to get in Poland?

Are you guys aware that there is media control keys on Pok3r keyboard? I just recently discovered these and since there is no mention of them anywhere I'd say about it here.

fn + D = Volume up
fn + S = Volume Down
fn + F = Mute

And the next ones only seem to work in Windows.
fn + q = either pause, next track or previous track
fn + w =either pause, next track or previous track
fn + e =either pause, next track or previous track

Finding these were pleasant.

the price isn't too unreasonable but since you're new i wouldn't recommend it. the keycaps are thick and double shot but they're ABS so the texture will wear down after a while of using them. thick PBT keycaps are generally preferred. at this price point you can get almost any keyboard so you can look at e.g. TADA68 and KBD75 if you want premium quality just not with the hhkb layout.

I have one with the trackpoint because it's a nice way to control my media center (computer connected to big screen TV, played on MPC-HC, both hotkeys and mouse use are required) without having two pieces of equipment on my couch. The trackpoint is pretty slow and hard to use precisely and it also gets in the way of my mediocre technique when actually using the keyboard to type. For typing, the key presses are a little heavy. I might be able to get used to it, but in the long run, I think I wouldn't like to type on one.

>try typing NA retard
Right pinky holding right shift + right index types N, keep holding right shift + left ring finger types A. Wow. That was so hard.

>protip: you're doing it wrong
I'm doing just fine, anon. Chill the fuck out.

Its $90 for the set you need, unless you're going for that one with all the meme caps

it's a shame the $50 pbt dye sub carbon knockoff doesn't come with it, but 1.75u shift is pretty common on high end sets (enjoypbt etc)

there's these thick pbt double shot sets which fit choc mini perfectly:

but then again the stock black 1.75u right shift might blend in reasonably well

thanks, bro. I can probably put something together with this. worst case I have a black shift, which I can make work with a bunch of different color combos I think.

Unless you play games where double tapping is a huge issue, that's a meme. I think it may only be useful in like MOBAs or something, because I play FPS, strategy, RPG, and some random indie games and have never needed fast double tapping.

You literally don't need more than like 20 keys even in the craziest games, unless you're playing nethack/dwarf fortress. Those two games (and similar ones) use so many keys that they might be awkward to play on a 40%. Literally everything else would probably be fine on a 30%. 50%+ will let you play anything perfectly.

Would be useful if you specified what "that" meme would be, because I talk about 2 different things.

Take a look at any game controller and tell me you need more than a half dozen buttons to play any decent game.

I mentioned double-tapping twice, so I thought it was clear I was referring to your criticism of blues and their hysteresis for gaming.

That's a stupid assumption because red/blacks also have different behaviours in response to "double-tapping".
