Italian guy here.

Today I've found out a friend of mine has a mechanical keyboard, so I went to his place and tried the keyboard out. It was a two and a half years old CM Quick Fire Pro with brown switches.

For a starter I noticed the caps (semi transparent ABS coated and laser ablated) weren't that worn out and the legends were still well defined, although the feel under the fingers was smoother than as I expected.

Switches however felt kinda bad: they felt rough, like there was a grain of sand in them and they didn't run smoothly. When typing fast it wasn't much of a problem, but on slower pushes it was much more noticeable, and it was unpleasant. I don't know, maybe they were actually dirty inside (the keyboard didn't look very clean either). Maybe browns don't have a tactile feedback that is noticeable enough for me: with my current keyboard (I guess it's a regular cheap rubber dome) typing isn't really pleasant, but I actually love how there's an initial very noticeable peak force that you have to overcome after which the key requires a much lower force, and inertia make you push further; having to bottom the key out in order to activate the switch is the unpleasant part, I guess.

I don't know /mkg/: everything I might want to buy, or that I can actually buy without going bankrupt, is sold with a very narrow selection of Cherry MX switches.

>brown suck
I was hoping it was just a meme, or that it was one of those thing you either hate or love. I was honestly hoping to love it because it would have made everything much, MUCH easier (and cheaper).

The only topre keyboard I saw that could interest me is a Leopold FC980C, that costs 240€ ($282) and comes only in ANSI. I was even ready to disregard the italian layout as long as I was getting a ISO-UK one (not ideal, but still ISO, and I can understand the writings on the modifiers).

Just get a Drevo Gamer, Plum 84, or KBD75; I made sure those were ordered from least to most amount of dosh. If you get a KBD75, you really won't regret it.

This guy is pretty good, I've never seen anyone make coils as good as him: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1O8-y3vcuR8QClX1kB-gxhwCaVJ4b8tqBf4mBuyMltoc/viewform?edit_requested=true

Just make sure you never buy Pexon cables, or else you awaken an anon's autism.

I second >>61841291, I have two cables from him and they're really high quality. Also offers ultra-thicc cables that are great.

The keycaps on these are disgusting but they are small and cheap it appears

Newfag to mechanical keyboards here. Why is PBT considered so good?

>> No.61842112

ABS yellows over time and absorbs oil from your skin, resulting in a shiny oily surface. PBT does not.
