Hello guys, my first post here, so let's hope this goes well ;)

Here it is:

It only cost me 8£ brand new. Why is it good you ask? I shall tell you.

Well, first of all: this keyboard is from Logitech, which is undoubtedly the best keyboard manufacturer today.

It is a rather common keyboard, yes; but because it is a Logitech, somehow it doesn't feel cheap. It's like the brand itself makes a crappy keyboard turn into a great one. I don't know, Logitech has always made me feel comfortable with cheaper products.

The keys are superbly well distributed, and your fingers won't touch the surrounding keys like some other ones I've tried. The keys are also not very soft, nor very hard to press down on. You know, this keyboard makes it just right, so that you can actually take advantage of the impulse that the rebounding keys give you.

This keyboard makes you feel like gravity is actually working WITH you, rather that against you.

Another thing I absolutely love about it, is the space bar. It is just the right size, and not too small or too big like on some other crappy keyboards from other manufacturers. The space bar is the most balanced key in the whole keyboard, it sits right at the center, and you can actually use it without looking at the keyboard. I mean, that's just brilliant design.

It's an USB keyboard. This makes it perfect for use with modern computers, and even laptops and netbooks. No more using that old crappy PS/2 port. We're in 2017, people.

I could be here all day, but in the end, I just wanted to share with you my experience with this marvelous piece of peripheral engineering.

I recommend this keyboard to anyone.

>Location (continent at least)

Not sure. Tried blues and not sure I like them. A little too hard to press down in casual typing/gaming.
ANSI I guess.
>Form factor
No preference. I want media keys though (vol and play/pause).
>Previous/current keyboards
Used chiclet styles for years and years. Bought a Leopold FC750R with blues and just not really feeling it. Lack of media keys and the pressure I need to press down to type are kinda hurting my hands. Maybe I just need to invest in an ergonomic keyboard tray? Not sure.

>Good luck anon. Keep us posted, I'm interested.
yep, will do.

btw, here's the best pic of the set I could find. One thing I realized right away is that whole bottom row is gonna be unusable for my current keyboard. Ctrl, Alt, Win, Spacebar... they're all JIS dimensions.

I don't have the pic of the right side but I presume it's ISO enter, kana key etc. I can basiclaly forget about fitting that part as well.

But alphas, numpad, arrows, "system" keys are all standard on JIS keyboards (from my research anyway).

Will it be worth the trouble? I think so. I'll find some other cheap black PBT set with no legends and just pair it up.

>> No.61686642

they use really rattly stabilizers though

>> No.61686761

it's a jap manufacturer that lists what they make in a fucking giant-ass PDF file. It felt like it was from 2001 (but the file is their 2016 catalog).

I managed to find it after I paid some girl on Fiverr to translate a bunch of keyboard terms for me into Japanese. That helped me find this plastics company. I then asked her to translate a page from this PDF and then translate my email to japanese because I bet they don't speak a word of English.

If I manage to buy it, I'll let you know the email and how to order it. Will I get a reply this week? Who the fuck knows.

Sit tight. I'll have an update maybe tomorrow evening.

Eh, it's certainly great for looking around, but don't expect to find anything terribly interesting. It's mostly just the regular cherry switches (e.g. no clears or greens), and Topre. Compare things with domestic prices before you buy anything unless you want to buy a JIS layout Topre board, there's probably not going to be much savings.

In any case, enjoy traveling in Japan, the food is great, supposedly everyone is racist as shit, but if you speak their language they'll invite you to a good restaurant for dinner and introduce you to their colleagues.

Got these chink caps today for my Turtle Beach Impact 500 (it's essentially a non-backlit ducky with mx blues don't diss). Any tips how to cover those spots where I have no correct size key (lshift, enter, "<" and "ä")?? I'm thinking of using the original black keycaps or buying some color blanks or buying "correct" ones with a "close enough" color (if I can even find).

There's Topre on display in every major electronics store in Akihabara, 35, 45 and 55g, so you'll get to finger them to your heart's content.

You can get a good meal at just about any convenience store, or at those places that have ticket machines with which you order your food with. Just don't get any pre-packaged meals with chicken from a convenience store unless you have a fetish for violent diarrhea. Though raw chicken at restaurants seems to be just fine in my experience, not to mention very tasty.

As for learning Japanese; If you aren't learning 25 new words and ten new Kanji a day, then you won't be able to learn Japanese, ever. It's literally impossible.

On a more serious note, language classes are typically a waste of time and money. Go check out the /djt/ on /int/ (used to be on /a/ until some stupid mods decided to move it to /int/ for no good reason), and take a look at the guide (https://djtguide.neocities.org/guide.html). It has everything you need to get you started on the path to teaching yourself Japanese. The only thing it won't provide you with is the dedication to pull through, but I'm certain you have that in yourself.
If you don't, I suggest you quit being a pussy and starting grinding that vocab anyway.

There's not enough space IIRC... I did measure it with calipers. You do have a point... maybe not removing the whole stem would work. You could just file down or dremel a 1/3 of it off. Then you could use some Milliput and take a blob of of it and wrap it around the old stem so it's strong and then just press it into an existing keycap (first cover it with release agent or oil) and create a new stem that way. You could also use an extra switch to press it in so you don't damage the keyboard.


I wouldn't bother with epoxy or superglue or anything else. it wouldn't work well at all. Get some Milliput and try it.

Outemu Blue but I've got a problem with the S key
It doesn't always happen, but it sometimes prints S two times.

I'm not sure how this is called.
Anyway, should I RMA or there's a way to fix it by myself?

Its called keychatter, and basically you have to replace the switch

There's quite a few decent split keybaords that are premade, but if you want membrane-tier quietness you'll have to build something yourself with silent red or black switches.There's also the Matias Ergo Pro with their quiet click switches, but I don't know how good that is because no-one seems to buy Matias keyboards.

I currently have a Redragon K552 and it gets the job done but I'm interested in upgrading to something a little higher quality for under $100 what would you recommend?

Prefer lighter touch switches that are easy to press down so my hands dont get tired after prolonged use. I game a fair bit too if that is relevant.

kek. I bought it. even if it's a shit lubricant, it's so much cheaper than other oils. and I always have use for that shit (doors, hinges etc).

whats insane is that I'd have to pay 3-5x as much just for shipping that much lubricant. I guess chinks pay nothing for shipping to West. their way of subsidizing their economy.
