what ever happened to this community? I bet you hate any switch that has an actuation force above 100g.

>> No.63041187

No, unless you have girl hands there's no reason for having double width left shift. The return key position is debatable though. As a European I'm used to the ISO return key but honestly it feels pretty stupid to waste two keys for what could obviously be done with just one. There's no obvious way in which the extra vertical area makes it easier or faster to hit return other than preventing you from mistakenly hitting backspace or enter when trying to hit the button between them.

Got my cherry sample kit today and I must say, I really am disappointed in MX browns. The tactile bump is significantly lighter than the tactile bump on the MX clears to the point where you can barely even feel the bump on MX browns. MX clears are really great at using minimally as you can hit the tactile bump without fully pressing the key even with a fairly heavy push.

MX greens on the other hand are way lighter than I was expecting. They are definitely lighter than buckling springs. They even feel lighter than the MX dark greys despite the dark greys supposedly having the same actualtion force.

MX whites were basically the same as MX blues but significantly quieter.

a diy keyboard is usually more exotic than a normal keyboard. unusual layouts, premium materials, fully programmable, side-/underglow etc. and it's easier to do a group buy if it's just for the parts and enthusiasts can assemble it on their own anyway and for example they might buy it without switches because they already have switches for example from taking the switches off of an recycled cherry keyboard

You can probably type every letter and number without looking at the keyboard. If you claim you can then I'll believe you.

Now, if you're saying you remember what all the shift and Alt-Gr combinations do then .. good luck with that keyboard. I know I have a hard time typing £ or § and a few things like that which I rarely use without looking at the keyboard. I'd have problems using that keyboard for sure.
