I've got the G810 with the Romer switches and I love it. The keys feels nice to press, there's very little gamer stuff and the RGB stuff is pretty nice to tune and fuck around with.

That being said I tried a Corsair K70 the other week with Cherry Reds and really liked it to the point where I was on the verge of getting one but I just can't see the point if I already enjoy using my G810

But they are replaceable.
I got a whole pack of replacement caps with my G413 along with a little tool for removing them.

As for the ABS plastic thing, I'm coming from a Model M which is PBT, and the feel is very similar to me.
The feel of the keys was one of the first things I noticed.
Logitech's ABS keys feel nothing like the rubber-dome keyboards I have laying around.

Maybe this is just a coating that will wear off, but as you can tell from pic, the caps are very simple in construction, so I'm sure custom caps will come along at some point.

Wrong. The market of people who both buy logitech keyboards AND buy aftermarket keycaps is small enough that nobody will ever bother.

The construction isn't revolutionary in its simplicity, compared to e.g. cherry caps, and molds cost dozens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I think you'll have to indicate it with some arrows or something, but here's the whole thing. The red drawers are mostly screws, bottom right is random ICs and other random components. The stuff in the middle is a shitton of random stuff. There's motors that run straight off 230v AC, lenses, various connectors and I don't know what.
Bottom left is a bunch of resistors and the stuff I already mentioned.

The stuff in the drawers, about two hours, though there was also a lot of other stuff that's not in those that I collected at the time. How long it took the guy to whom it previously belonged to to collect all that stuff, I have no idea, presumably most of his career.

All the other stuff on and under my desk has piled up over the past two and a half years or so. The top of the desk is just the tip of the iceberg really, there's a ridiculous amount of trash under the desk.

I post keyboard in keyboard thread. How varied of motivation could I be? Why does anyone post a keyboard in a keyboard thread? Pride or critical solicitation.

Why don't people complain about any other individual who posts the same keyboard more than once ever? I've seen about 1/4 the keyboards in this thread before and greater than 3/4 of the ones in the last thread. Is there something about my images that makes them more memorable or recognizable?

Making a quasi-frame and stand for that monitor on the left, so that I can mount it in a vertical position and use it as my secondary once I move out. Other than that, a desk, larger than my current desk and with a rack of shelves so I can store all those drawers and whatever other tools I'll end up with. Furthermore, finishing that variable voltage power supply (accidentally got the wrong value potentiometer, now I have to wait for a 20k pot from china to arrive), and finding out what's wrong with that HDMI switch (it works fine, but gets powered from the connected devices rather than through the power cable, so that needs fixing). A motorized camera slider for a friend, and a really basic delay circuit for another friend.
My multimeter got fried recently (see that PCB with a battery attached to it), so I can't do much with electronics until I get a new one.

Also going to make a miniature groupbuy for really cheap numpads that I'll manufacture myself, but that's on hold for now as I'm too busy with all of the aforementioned.

I don't have one, though I'm starting my studies in electrical engineering this september.

>Who owned all the stuff in the drawers before you and how did u acquire it?
The technician of the local university, I got it when someone I knew there retired. The technician had already retired and used to be under the jurisdiction of said person, so when he retired he took me along to help with take all the stuff he had accumulated, along with the stuff that the technician left. Would've all gotten thrown out otherwise.

Ridiculous. I find legs in knee socks, animal dildos, multiculturalism and hot glue figures offensive but I don't openly whine about such posts, I ignore or hide them like an adult. No one is forced to view or reply to any of my on topic posts. In fact, since people keep saying I post the same keyboard on the same desk every time, it should be eminently obvious from the thumbnail which posts are mine and therefore easier than most to ignore. Which I repeatedly and respectfully suggest.

Isn't that enough? Shouldn't it be?

That is not a request I've made or expect, how dare you imply I'm only here to rabble-rouse under the guise of "being taken seriously." My posts have always been on topic until an agitator makes an insulting, off-topic accusation. Perhaps it's my fault for replying to them.

I cut the PCB of the magicforce to shreds with a dremel, then I handwired the whole thing. Also turned an AEK II into a 60% with a case that I made from a solid block of wood. And I made a numpad to go with my tada68. My latest attempts in keyboard diy was 3D printing a whole keyboard (e.g. case and plate), which worked fine more or less, but the project is currently stuck in "I'll get to that when I'm done with all these other projects that I've been drowning myself in" limbo.

What a strange Japanese keyboard layout. While some characters are in the correct position, others are not. In Japan, they use ISO keyboards and hiragana is laid out differently. Also, the position of +, -, | etc and corresponding hiragana are all "wrong."

Just looked up the source, enjoypbt, and it looks like something that someone came up to distribute hiragana onto an ANSI board.

What's funny is that once you learn japanese, you don't even use kana input. But the legends do look nice.

I don't think I have any pictures of it, but yes, I cleaned up the wiring to the controller. It's currently in the possession of the friend for whom I made it.

Also, the 3D printed board I mentioned, in its current state.

My desoldering pump wasn't working properly, and I ended up with some pads getting ripped off. I could've probably fixed it just by checking how the PCB is layed out and with some wires, but I didn't have the experience I have now, not to mention I wanted to desolder all the switches, which would've probably resulted in more fucked pads. So I took a blade that spins at 35K RPM and did what I had to do.

The Pi needs around 2A though, and the HHKB already tortures 500mA USB ports. You'd be forced to use it only with high current ports.

why does the hhkb use so much current, is it a capacitive thing?

Capacitive boards are more power hungry than contact types (like 200mA for the HHKB vs 10mA for a Poker). A lot of the draw from the HHKB is caused by the hub in it, though. If you stick it on a high current port it'll draw upwards of 800mA.

$150 us dollars
>Preferred switch type
don't really have a preference, only used membrane and cherry mx speed
would rather ISO but not sure if characters are the same or if it varies from country. I speak spanish and my clients want things in spanish so a spanish layout would be appreciated but if that just doesn't exist, well, ANSI then.
>Form factor
Yes sir (would like to avoid the RGB meme but not gonna lie, I like my LEDS in purple)
>Previous/current keyboards
Corsair K65 rapidfire RGB.

Also, it'd be good if the color was silver or matte black, my case is a NZXT S340 razer but would like to get the phanteks enthoo evolv tempered shit

isn't a kb that tall uncomfortable?

What do you mean? Is this some sort of "browns are loud" meme?

>> No.61818983

also, forgot to say

I like the k65 but I make a lot of mistakes while typing, I think it has to do with the travel distance and the sensitivity of the cherry mx's

...Or, am I just being a fag?

are Kailh switches bad?, there are some good looking chink kbs in amazon but I have doubts.

I've been considering modding my noppoo choc mini with back lit LED caps white or blue of course.

Just received a nearly unused Dolch PAC 64 with a keyboard in great condition.
Paid 150 bucks.
Did I do good?

>> No.61819630

I have a TADA with blues and browns. The blues aren't too loud desu, they're a bit higher pitched than cherries I think.

Gateron browns are pretty good though, so I don't see the harm in getting them.

Im never buying Duckshit again, are WASD keyboards are good choice for my next mech? Im looking at buying a full size red switch keyboard.

Im located in Canada, if that makes any difference.

Dang. And here I thought they were over priced back when they were 80 bucks. Why have the prices gone up so much? It used to be for 200-250 bucks you can get a working system and play Doom on it.

it's a working system, in next to perfect condition. Also I'm from germany, where there aren't that many, contrary to the US

Either the debounce is latency/10 or you can look forward to extreme chatter as the switches wear.

ok but it looks like an 80's kb and my system looks modern, any other recommendation?

Nope. All the good mechanical switches were made in the 80s. All whats left today is cheap chink shit
