What mechanical keyboard should i get for 50€?
No amazon

I have been thinking about these:
>JamesDonkey 619
>Ajazz AK33 RGB
>3LUE k751
JamesDonkey has Gateron switches Ajazz has Zorros, K751 has Outemu

I don't get the "membranes are mushy" meme, both mech and membranes are mushy as fuck, membranes because of weak tactile feedback and mechs because the key resistance is so low, you don't feel like you're even pressing anything.

Maybe I should try topres or buckling spring.

Fell for the meme 3 or 4 years ago, and honestly pretty happy that I did. I type with slightly less fatigue (not that I had much before), slightly more accuracy, and about 5% more WPM.

If all memes delivered those results, I'd be ecstatic.

I purchased a CM quick fire TK browns for 90 AUD knowingly it splurge buy. I could of bought 16gb of RAM instead, which I slightly regret since prices went up but I'm not mad.
I'm already an shit and slow typist so I haven't felt it helped me but it does feel nicer than membrane. It sure does piss of my roomate too

The old generic keyboards from the early 2000s and late 90s are super comfy. I have an old Gateway PS/2 keyboard and it's a nice balance between wireless flat trash and mechanical trash.

This desu. I just found a cheap mechanical, around $40. I took the keys off and all I know is the switches are blue if it means shit.
w2c caps though?

>I took the keys off and all I know is the switches are blue if it means shit.

Probably Cherry mx blue switches or more likely clones of them like Outemu or Gateron. The really cheap ones tend to be Outemu, which is what's in my board.

For caps, aliexpress.

I like them. Not into fancy colors or letters. Keyboard is for typing, not staring at. I mainly bought them because they're pbt and doubleshot. Stock ones are thin abs with printed legends.

Thanks, brother-in-law!

I could have never justified the cost myself without trying, but now I do wish I took the plunge years ago. The improvement in daily quality of life is amazing. And that's with switches that are apparently not even regarded as the best.

>> No.62094561

What's the benefit of having a fast typing speed?

>> No.62094563

Membranes actually feel acceptable if the rubber nipples are rigid and provide some resistance. You need to put some force into the keys, at which point they buckle and the key bottoms out with some acceleration, the impact of the key hitting the bottom giving some tactile feedback.
But those are the good rubber domes, not the $5 goodwill bullshit.

People jump from $5 rubberdomes to $80 mechanicals and attribute all improvement to the mech keys, when in fact it's just price.

yeah, doubleshot is a reason to buy new caps, but they still look pretty uncomfy to type on

but rubber domes just cant be as good as mechanical keyboard, just from the board alone
Ghosting is still a problem with rubber domes, i think that is the biggest reason for anyone to really upgrade, second after the tactical feeling

Been using a generic Wyse keyboard with rubber dome keys for the past 5-6 years and I haven't run into any hiccups yet. I bought it at a yard sale for $4.

Mechanical keyboards might be an improvement, but no way is it substantial enough to justify spending 10-20x that much

Did too my friend, literally made no difference except the keyboard died the first time I spilled wine on it, not even that great an amount.

I took back my K120 which endured so many brands of wine, coffee and beer throughout the years and it still working like new.

There is literally no good mech board on the market with (D)SA caps stock for $80. Chink board and cap switch is the way to go.

>> No.62094938

Depends on how much you spend with it I guess but for something I'm using for at least 6 hours a day every day $100 is cheap as hell. I'd spend 10 times that if it represented a significant improvement in performance.

I mean I spend like $40+ per month on a phone I use way less than my keyboard and no one scoffs at that.

No membrane or dome keyboard has lasted that long while not starting to feel even more like shit.

>> No.62096225

They are? I always prefered reds.
Sure they are more sensitive than blacks, but they take a pretty proper press to register, you can't make them trigger accidently. They are specially good for games, but also easy on the fingers for typing lots.

>> No.62096602

Bottoming out hard actually fatigues my fingers more than a stiffer spring with a dampened bottom out.
I'm currently using clears which have only 55g actuation but 95g peak force.
Typing on them feels very light but you still don't bottom out most of the time.

It's great, but I would prefer more keycap customization.
Also wouldn't mind if my keyboard were louder.
