Aluminium case is really good. Pretty good quality chuck of metal they made for the case. Haven't found any issues with the case externally or internally so far. With the case being a really nice thick piece of aluminium, and the thick sheet of stainless steel also inside the keyboard that everything is attached to, it's quite heavy.

Atleast to me, since all previous keyboards I've had have all been mostly plastic. Last keyboard was a CM Quickfire Storm Rapid w/ Cherry MX Blues.

So far I'm finding these gaterons to be better than the MX blues. They feel over all better to me when I use them, and they have a nicer sound to them when they click.

I think the few video reviews I watched before getting the Tada68, all were talking about how the gateron blues are better than the MX, but other MXs are better than their gateron counterparts.

>> No.62658238

I'd say the best switches are either MOD-M or Zealios 45g, both far superior to either Cherry MX Brown or Gateron brown.

I started with Cherry MX Blue and quickly moved onto Gateron Blue switches. After a while even you get sick of the clicky switches. Depending on your lifestyle, it can become very inconvenient to those around you.

MOD-M / Zealio 45gs offer the perfect balance in feel and tactileness, and bottoming out gives you enough clack noise to feel satisfied. You can always touch-type it to reduce sound or put dampeners on.

they keep the numpad and it's basically full size anyway but they gimped the home row, what the fuck were they thinking

you can get a tenkeyless with an external numpad if that's your thing, but there's a reason why most right handed people use calculators with their right hands

matias are pretty decent, they even use pigdisgusting glossy plastic for the case to match original apple keyboards

t. matias quiet pro mini user

reds if you like bottoming out, blues if you like everyone else in the building to know you're typing

they should be as loud as blues but they're stiffer which might mean you bottom out more which might mean more noise depending on a bunch of other factors

it's not the jis layout I'm complaining about but the dimples/cutouts(not sure what you'd call them) on those keys, it's fairly common to have them on the capslock and sometimes the iso enter but never quite to that extent on the enter, the arrow keys are also a little awkward but the way the hhkb jis solves it is by shifting the entire bottom row .25x to the right which a lot of people don't like, personally I prefer it more

Hello guys, my first post here, so let's hope this goes well ;)

Here it is:

It only cost me 8£ brand new. Why is it good you ask? I shall tell you.

Well, first of all: this keyboard is from Logitech, which is undoubtedly the best keyboard manufacturer today. It is a rather common keyboard, yes; but because it is a Logitech, somehow it doesn't feel cheap. It's like the brand itself makes a crappy keyboard turn into a great one. I don't know, Logitech has always made me feel comfortable with cheaper products. The keys are superbly well distributed, and your fingers won't touch the surrounding keys like some other ones I've tried. The keys are also not very soft, nor very hard to press down on. You know, this keyboard makes it just right, so that you can actually take advantage of the impulse that the rebounding keys give you.

This keyboard makes you feel like gravity is actually working WITH you, rather that against you.

Another thing I absolutely love about it, is the space bar. It is just the right size, and not too small or too big like on some other crappy keyboards from other manufacturers. The space bar is the most balanced key in the whole keyboard, it sits right at the center, and you can actually use it without looking at the keyboard. I mean, that's just brilliant design. It's an USB keyboard. This makes it perfect for use with modern computers, and even laptops and netbooks. No more using that old crappy PS/2 port. We're in 2017, people. I could be here all day, but in the end, I just wanted to share with you my experience with this marvelous piece of peripheral engineering.

I recommend this keyboard to anyone.

It was recommended to me in another thread. It will be the one I get if I decide to go for browns over clears. I was going that road I was considering getting the key caps from wasd but I've been hearing that they're poor quality and the paint starts to chip off the plastic after a few months. I'm not sure how true this is. Another concern of mine is that all the aftermarket key caps have the Windows logo and I would rather have Tux the Penguin or something to Linux-y. I'm worried that I get a keycaps that I like and then have the color of the OS key be slightly off.

I was thinking of joining massdrop anyway.

it's probably because of some corner-cutting they did to print any design on a key cap and offer a full 104 key set for $50. Do the backlit keys on the code have this issue as well? I like how everything is moved to the center top so the legends are all evenly backlit.

I still have a lot of time before I'm going to buy a new keyboard. First I need to upgrade my whole computer since my processor is nearly a decade old and not viable for modern gaming. Then they need to replace my cheap mouse pad because the cute kitten picture clashes with the rest of my desk. then I think I can look at what I have and decide if I want a simple black keyboard with white backlighting or an unlit keyboard with monochrome colored keys.

That keyboard is A LOT more money than a bluetooth keyboard. Bluetooth isn't a feature mk people seek, for the most part. It's fine for a travel board—not your home board.

How can I get this pepe kap?

>> No.62683082

You can wait for me to die and buy it at my estate sale. It's a one-off commission made by KeyForge. I call it the rarest pepe.

>> No.62683097

It really looks like the rarest pepe I ever have seen.

>> No.62683112


Alternatively, you could offer me a stupid amount of money for it. It cost 550 to make it.

Thanks anon. We could have went with a version that was truer to the pepe palette, but I think that immortalizing him in a metallic sculpture was the way to go... paying kek and his only begotten pepe the respect he deserves.

What the hell is it made out of is it metal?

>> No.62683175


It'll look like dogshit. They don't have the skill keyforge has in sculpting or casting.

But that would be fine by me. The more pepes the better.

>> No.62683200


yes sir. It's made using a process called cold casting.

It just makes no sense, anon. Buy some more fucking keyboards. They won't bite.

that's a really cool keyboard, anon

Why would you need more than 1 keyboard?

>> No.62683364

For the same cluster of abstract reasons you'd need more than one gun, A.K.A. the stuff you needlessly introduce to complicate this discussion of disposable income expenditure.

>> No.62683383


I have 2 at the moment, but I've had as many as 5.

- A keyboard for each work area you have and a travel board. I had a TKL for home and two offices. I have an HHKB for travel. I use my HHKB for both offices and travel now though.

- different layouts for different tasks... I type in IPA sometimes, and have a keyboard programmed specifically for that (my hhkb now). I had an ergodox and an ortholinear to play around with different configurations as well.

- some people like to collect and display them.

just ordered the vortex poker 3 rgb with nature whites. how'd i do?

>> No.62683488


The RGB Topre isn't the greatest, anon. Markedly different from predecessor and hhkb.

It's really fucking subjective though.

You should try some MX silents... had some reds.... super quite, and super sensitive. It's the only switch that I felt I could learn to type lighter on, without bottoming out all day long. People around me in the office are less likely to sabotage me because of the MX blues as well.

>> No.62683499

This is a technology board, friend. No need for such anger. Maybe try a different hobby?

>> No.62683510

it's a board. pok3r's arrow situation is awkward af. nature whites are a decent switch.

You'll either love it or hate it, I have one of the earlier models. I can't bare to use it for my daily driver but it saves a lot of space for the computer I essentially use as a media server / seedbox.

Great order. Used my poker 2 for thousands of hours, even added a tricked out aluminum case. Tempted to get the 3 with RGB just for shits and giggles

>> No.62683898

>Topre fucking sucks
Meanwhile, I just got a RealForce 87u-55g and find it a revelation to type on compared to my previous experience typing on Cherry MX reds, browns and blacks or a Unicomp Model M. This keyboard has excellent bump feedback combined with an incredibly well cushioned bottoming out feeling that is like typing on a cloud compared to anything else I've ever used before.

What kind of military nut doesn't understand the concept of "two is one and one is none"?
Are you the military equivalent of a fake nerd girl or something?

i dont really use the arrow keys all too much, but i imagine using the caps lock as the function key would make it a lot nicer to use. im coming from reds so i hope nature whites wont be too hard to get used to

>> No.62684200


Disassemble the case
Remove each and every keycap
Wash case and caps with warm water
and soap, sponge if dirt doesn't come off easily
Retrobright if you don't like the yellowness
Common sense
