The non-flashy Logitechs are fairly good. I actually prefer their own Romer-G switches when it comes to backlighting as it doesn't just flood light everywhere and keeps the light directed a the keys.

So I'm back at home, and mind you, I'm still a novice regarding mech keyboards. But seeing the keycaps, I think I can safely say
>well shit

BUT, and there's always a BUT, this meh keycaps, and the fixed feet (and to an extent the complicated system to set the backlight, at least when driverless) are the only issues I'm finding so far. In general I think I like what I got for only 70€, and that is an rgb keyboard with a sturdy ?aluminium? chassis (at least compared to my old rubber dome), and Gateron switches.
Now first of all, give me an hand here, these look like standard sized keycaps right?
One thing that pleased me is seeing a fat usb connector for the keyboard, and notched at that, so it fits snugly under the dedicated slot under the keyboard. I did test standard usb connectors in it and they still fit relatively tightly, so no issue replacing it if the cable fails.
As for the keys themselves, they do feel nice enough (while they're still new anyway), have not much play, and save for the spacebar, virtually no rattle.
Speaking of which, the spacebar feels very tightly secured when I try to pull it out, would like to see how it's secured underneath to see if it's easily swappable. Is this normal behaviour?

>> No.61264661

I was planning to only post about the backlight if asked about it, but fuck it I have it ready anyway.

Backlight looks very uniform, which pleased me, and color me surprised and relieved, it HAS onboard memory. So if I plug it off, or turn off the pc, it saves the backlight setting, and doesn't become a christmas tree when booting up.
But setting it up is...interesting. Well it is fully featured, that's for sure, but also complicated as fuck.
Score 1 for the keyboard first of all: hitting the Fn key lights up in white any keys with available functions, a neat little feature I think. But ok, here we go:
Fn+F10 seems to switch between single color and multicolor setting. I say seems, it shows slightly different behaviours depending on the lighting effects.
Fn+F11 cycles between the different lighting effects, such as color waves, breathing, turn the light off, etc. This doesn't have the solid backlight by itself, I'll get to that in a second.
Fn+F12 sets what the lighting does with a key pressed. It can be turn the light off on that key individually, send a color wave across the keyboard, towards the key, or do nothing.
Fn+Arrow Keys set a constant background color, even when no lighting effects are activated. Start with Fn+Up Arrow, and the whole keyboard turns off, set the amount of RGB using Fn+The other Arrow keys (the light up with each color accordingly, you can even mix colors, it is RGB after all), and Fn+Up again to exit this mode.
So, to achieve the solid blue I wanted, I had to set:
>Fn+F10 - Single Color
>Fn+F11 - No lighting effects
>Fn+F12 - Do nothing on key press
>Solid blue background

Those caps are as thin as thin can be, you really should change them ASAP.
Having a USB-A connector instead of Mini is pretty cool. Those LEDs look weird as fuck, and hopefully don't interfere with something in thick Cherry profile.

Check if the spacebar uses Cherry stabilizers or just wires. I have a feeling you're going to have to "push" the wire off the spacebar to remove it.

So a friend gave me this, and in theory it would be really nice except the membrane keys are absolute fucking mushy garbage. My $10 curved microsoft membrane kb feels better. This is supposed to be used for gaming, but I'd take greens over this. They're heavy AND mushy.

Is there anything at all I could do to mod this? Or would I be better off making my own from scratch? Do you think I could realistically reuse the casing and replace the guts with my own PCB, switches, and controller, and perhaps retain the use of the joystick and maybe even the screen?

I have a Ducky one and I bought it specifically for the minimalistic case. I went for the one with dye-sub PBT keycaps, and as far as keyboards go its great. It has a steel plate which helps give the plastic case a lot of stability making it hard to flex, and the keycaps are very thicc at 1.5 mm. There are plenty of other software features since the keyboard is mostly programmable, but there is no dedicated software to help you program it. It kinda sucks that Ducky raised the prices on all their keyboards by 10 bucks since they were so popular, but I think its still worth it.

>Recently, I acquired a custom 60% board with Gateron Yellows, and I really like typing with these switches. In marked contrast to any Cherry mx switch I've tried, Gateron Yellows feel just about right -- they have an actuation force of 50g - 55g (about the same as Gateron Blacks but lighter than Cherry Blacks at 60g - 65g), but their bottoming-out force of ~65g is less than that of Gateron Blacks (~70g) or Cherry Blacks ~80g.

>There is some confusion about Gateron Yellows, because apparently there was an earlier version that had a very high bottoming-out force -- these were dubbed "Super Blacks", which were very different from the current generation of Gateron Yellows.

Perfect brown sort of feel switch but far superior in that it has force at the top of actuation calling to how a Topre switch activates, without the extra price

So I posted about this a thread or two ago and got a response but wasn't really helping too much.

So, coming from /csg/, I got a Jame Donkey 619 and wanted to mod and put it in an enclosure since I like the smooth top surfaced keyboards like the old office keyboards (kinda like the model M), HHKBs, or Quickfires as opposed to the floating key designs.
I've seen the same/very similar layouts of keyboards on sites, and wanted to know if there's any enclosures that could fit it (Function keys being very close to the number row)
I was linked to a NerD TKL enclosure that's just pieces of acrylic that's just held by some through-hole screws
(http://www.gonskeyboardworks.com/housings-and-related-parts/82-acrylic-housing-for-nerd-tkl.html)
For a simple enclosure like that, I especially don't feel comfortable paying near double what I paid for the keyboard itself. on top of that, I'm more looking into the ones that don't have screw heads sticking out of it, ones that typically also have to snap together with plastic tabs.

Anyone know of any enclosures that'd fit something like the 619 without costing a lot more than the entire keyboard itself?

Most aren't even true mechanical keyboards, just mechanical feel ones, as in, all the switch housings have a nub at the bottom that hits a rubber dome.

Mine has non-gaymery font and red LEDs which are actually pretty easy on the eyes when its dark. Inb4 why do you want LEDs when you can touchtype. Yeah, I can but I like the looks of it, and its pretty handy when I really want to be sure that I press the right button (ie. Typing a password), I can also dim it so it doesn't rape my eyes, you can turn them off too if you don't want them at all. So you can find a keyboard without shitty font and without shitty LEDs. Yes I am aware that there are keyboards with gaymer font on keycaps and gay rainbow LEDs but its not the case with every single one. And I like my Zorro switches, even if they're a bit scratchy, just a bit. The keycaps are a bit shiny already too, but given the price it's okay and it's not like these are irreplaceable, though keycap set with these 1.5x ESC, del and arrows would be more expensive than the whole keyboard. I'm waiting for Anne Pro with Gateron Reds, so maybe I'll feel the scratchiness of the Zorro switches more when I receive it, but if you really want a mechanical keyboard, then even a $30 one will propably be an upgrade over most rubber dome cheapos.

I read some reviews that say it's actually pretty decent. It uses outemu blues so you can read up on those if you want.

But at $20, not only are you not losing much even if it's shit, but you're not going to find anything better either. Cheapest gateron boards are like $40 and then that's the meme donkey, normal ones usually start at $60, and even those still always come with semi-shitty ABS - about $100 is where the cheapest PBT keyboards start (like the tada68). So the only real possible differentiator at that price range is the build itself (i.e. case/assembly quality), which according to reviews is just fine, and the looks/aesthetic.

Probablably because he has low volume of fabrication, and also his design is massively overbuild.
Anyways, I sugest get the fuckers at deskthority interested in make a version of their capacitive board for a full size Model M/Unicomp. Or at least suggest unicomp redesign their matrix for NKRO. That is more realist that hope for the chinks.

Matias quiets are generally considered the best tactile quiet switch. Alternatives are cherry greens.

Well that settles it, I'm gonna buy one. Thing is, their website says I should order before the end of this month, are they being giant faggots? I know last month it said the same thing, and now it's still open, so are they just doing the same shit every month?

I have a budget of ~$120, give or take some.
My requirements for a keyboard would be full a full keyboard and PBT keycaps.

In terms of board, I like the look of this. https://www.pcgamingrace.com/products/glorious-modular-rgb-mechanical-gaming-keyboard-barebones?variant=33499349710. However, I don't care at all about the LED lights.

I'm not 100% set on the switch I want, but I am leaning towards gateron brown switches.

So basically my question is, is going the modular keyboard route the best way to go about this (PBT, Gateron brown, full keyboard). Just putting those three things into the search on mechanical keyboard dot com brings up nothing.

And, are there any other boards that do this same thing? I can't help but feel like some of my money is going to be wasted on the LED lights I will never use

>> No.61283667

>>61281485
For $40, if you don't mind gaudy gamer plastic trim, or a keyboard without flip up feet if you remove said trim like me, it's pretty nice. Especially with the gateron switches. It even has doubleshot keycaps that are the same thickness as razer and corasir keyswitches, but being textured and doubleshot, are much better than either.
Be careful when looking around, there's a version with kailh switches that are much easier to find on places like amazon, they're very much not worth it. It should come in gateron or kailh switches, and as far as i know, i've only seen the full sized one with kailh.
My only regret is that I think I should've gotten the black switches, but hey, you live and you learn.
If you plan on getting the blue switches, then you may have better luck with other keyboards, as this one lacks some things, but i wouldn't say it's bad, you just may possibly find better with the large array of blue switch keyboards on the market in the price range.

Sounds like you want a Ducky: https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1684

I really wouldn't recommend the Cherry Browns though, unless you like them after trying a switch tester.

If you want a board with PBT keycaps and Gateron switches, you're gonna have a tough time doing it considering that Gateron switches are used for "cheap" boards and usually come with cheap ABS. The only board I can think of that comes with Gateron switches and PBT keycaps is the Tada68, but that isn't a 100% board.

To continue my post, you could buy a cheap Gateron board, and then buy really well made EnjoyPBT keycaps in Cherry profile that you'll never need to upgrade again. $40 for blanks, $80 with legends.

Don't know where to get a cheap 100% Gateron board, but I've heard a lot of people like their James Donkey keyboard for $40-ish.

Sounds like a good deal then. The official(?) store on Aliexpress says they come with Gateron switches, so I can probably trust that. I still have time to think over my choices at any rate.

Found my next purchase then.

Where do I actually buy a keyboard with them, any reccomendations? Looks like the company themselves sell a tenkeyless but its white and ugly and has mac printing.
