All the shit you see today: Buckling springs, Cherry MX, Topre, Hall effrct, Alps, as well as all these keycap sets like adler, olivetti, agol, space cadet, and their profiles like cherry, DSS, SA, Hi-pro, etc. Was all made back in the 80s. All whats left today is just clones. Even shit like these "new" analog switches is based of old 80s technology. For a long time these switches and profiles were lost, but recently they've made a come back. The golden age of computing is long gone, but that doesn't mean we can't still use them.

I have white version of this, keycaps are fine (probably better than cheap Chinese keycaps that people still buy). But, if you want to change them, choices are limited.

PCB build quality is not that great, once I opened the thing, first thing that I noticed is exceptionally shitty solder used :( Who knows how long will this last.

On the other hand, if you like clicky switches, they are some of the best.

Topre switches aren't meant for consumer keyboards. They were originally designed for industrial and military applications due to their superior durability and their insanely low cost compared to similar switches.

a thousand people really isn't a lot for a business. you are overestimating the amount of people who are signing up for these group buys. keycap companies are mostly geared towards commercial uses, not the enthusiast market.

alps-style switches are rare. basically the only company still making them is matias. alps does not make switches anymore. only a fraction of the people buying matias keyboards would even care about changing keycaps.

>if there was a company that just made plain pbt keycaps for different switches i'd be happy

I'm not going to bring it to class, just for my desktop at home.

I can just see the benefit of having the arrow keys be ijkl on a 60%.

I just didn't know if anyone had experiences with difficulty using a 60% for one reason or the other while programming.

That's exactly what I did and I had to pay fucking 30$ for import tax even though Superbuy declared it 10$. Also it's infuriating that it arrived from china in 6 days and then the custom procedure took almost 1 month. It sucks to live there.

Hey, don't get me wrong. I got nice headphones, a separate sound card that has headphone amplifier and also changed its op-amps. I can hear the difference between lossless and lossy compression. I have nothing against sensible investment in better sound quality - especially since the equipment doesn't degrade or depreciate as quick as the rest of computing garbo.

But then there are idiots who buy a ton of equipment then spend thousands on some meme cables made of pure diamonds - and magically discover new instruments and extra sound stage they weren't able to enjoy beforehand. Even if the solution was simple as hell: just reconnect the cables better.

I don't like him that much, but you could watch this video and use the rubber dome at 42:36 as a sort of benchmark to compare the other switches in the video to.

To add to this, try to play this video through speakers and match the sound of that rubber dome to your current rubber dome (or whatever switch you're currently using)

Are SA caps childish? Shiny plastic, large legends, enormous.

The video I linked has all the switches recorded under the same conditions so you can compare them.
You just need to match the sound of whatever you're using to something as close as you can in the video (if you're using cherry reds, find a keyboard in that video using reds and adjust the volume to match what yours sounds like) while it's playing through speakers (download a db meter on your phone or something)

Just because there is a plate, doesn't mean it isn't soldered. If you have a soldering iron: heat it up, disassemble the keyboard, gently pull on the switch while heating the solder on both contacts. Don't apply heat for more than a couple of seconds, it might cause some damage. Grabbing onto it without a stem won't be easy...

Google it, it's only sold as a kit and costs like $180 or something ridiculous

It could also easily fit more thumb keys without ruining the form factor, so really you're better off taking inspiration from the design and making your own

I really like the tada68 layout, but the case is just ridiculously tall.
Is there any other, flatter case that will fit? (alloy if possible, but not necessary)
(Or some other programmable keyboards with a similar layout, that don't cost $250+ and don't have a waiting period of 6 months)

Or will I have to make one myself?

The case coating is like rubber seems like low quality internals, had problems with light settings doing what I wanted, I had the small version and sent it back. Got a g610 when it was on offer, pity it has a non standard bottom row, I did make a mistake there in a way. Feels better quality than the masterkeys pro s though and was close to half the price, no rgb though.
