I spilled tea on my old flossed Model M 'cause I'm retarded, now a bunch of keys have quit working. Opened it up to find about half of the plastic rivets have fallen off, so it needs a boltmod and if I'm gonna do that I 'bout as well replace the membrane while I'm at it. Not sure I wanna put that much effort into it.

I bought a redragon K551 with knockoff blues in it. It's not too bad except for the gayass gamer keycap font. I kinda like the "Cherry" experience, but god damn this thing makes a soft ringing sound for about half a second after a keypress on most of the keys. I didn't notice it at first but as I'm typing this in the dark and the quiet it's really fucking annoying. I'm giving some serious thought to selling this one and buying a Ducky One with real MX Clears in it.

this is probably more suited for a mechanical keyboard gore thread, but what the hell:

cheap velocifire with outemu browns and some 1976 knockoff caps. the keyboard itself has an unconventional layout to say the least. the pgUp and pgDn keys are actually right ctrl and right shift. the original left shift key was just small enough that I had to hack away some of the current one with a fucking exacto knife to keep it from bumping elbows with the Z key. it's a nice enough setup in terms of actual typing. looks alright from across the room. oh yeah, it also glows a sort of ghoulish turquoise color.

Why do you care what other people use? Why not just use something that makes sense for you? If you always try to be like someone else you'll never be your own person. Getting a 60% keyboard will not make you a better programmer no matter how many times retards in /mkg/ tell you. Sorry kiddo.

>> No.62068769

Who said that it would? Do you even use emacs? A 60% keyboard is all what you need. Just look at all the professional programmers who use emacs. Is it that hard of a concept to grasp that not everyone needs a full size keyboard?

>> No.62068779

I think at this point they pretty much have to make them to stay relevant.

So I want to get a new keyboard but I have the k70 rgb that I bought 2 years ago which makes me reluctant. I have numerous problems with the keyboard including the nonstandard key layout, gay branding, and I don't even use the lighting on it. In addition I want to try so new switches because I'm getting sick of reds and all my buds have either browns or blues and I like their feel much more.
So, I want to sell this k70. I bought it for 180 when it was new and there is no damage to the keyboard other than just shit on it which I will clean up plus I have an extra set of transparent keycaps which I was thinking of including since I won't use them. How much could I get out of this on eBay or otherwise? I'm hoping for 100 at least, is that unrealistic?

Because number of parts isn't the only factor in construction costs, and it's almost always cheaper to be able to use off the shelf parts whenever possible rather than manufacturing stuff yourself.
