Is there a cherry switch equivalent of this?

>> No.63487810

>>63487453
I dislike they because they're advertised as quiet everywhere while being rather loud in reality. At least when compared to rubber dome keyboards.

Opted for a corsair keyboard for this very reason, MX Silent Reds are pretty neat. Typing is alright and at least they're actually fucking quiet.

Looked at topre and the canadian switches but they're all louder. Could of course do some fuckery with o-rings or lube or whatever but I don't think I'm in for shit like that.

No idea, tactile feedback is just right to know when to stop pushing, IMO. Maybe they like to push buttons harder. Or they like clicky sounds. Or no feedback at all. That's why key testers exist, you select the switch you like and then furiously shit on everything else.

Not ducky one, only their RGB boards. Single 3mm led keyboards are poorly engineered, as most of stock keycaps and pretty much all cherry profile keycaps hit the leds before bottoming out. All that hammering on a lit LED always result in failure.

what's the hive mind consensus on the Das Keyboard Q5? I've been looking for a quality rgb keyboard and the idea of using the backlighting as a notification dashboard looks interesting. Having an open API makes me hopeful it will work well on Linux. for example, I love to use Pywall in i3 and I hope someone makes a fork or script that will auto change the backlighting on the keyboard to match the color scheme of the terminals.

Or is it just an overpriced toy? It's not like I get lots of notifications anyway. . .

Might kind of be stupid a question but I have been seeing around this thread for a while and I keep seeing "Cherry red switch" and different colors of the parts underneath the keyboard caps.

screw it then, if I want RGB I'll just get a Ducky Shine.

Not sure if I want a Das Keyboard pro 4 or a Ducky Shine. I guess it comes down to how badly I want RGB lighting and if any of them will make a bad echoing sound while I type.

My Corsair K65 often makes a terrible echoing sound if I bottom out. Playing around with the lighting on the K65 was fun until the LEDs started to break. However, I like the Aesthetics of the body on the Das Keyboard more.

I could see how someone looking to buy their first mechanical keyboard might get confused when switches are referred to as "brown cherries" or "green cherries." but yeah, the color is the only two distinguish switch type. Things like weight needed to actuate the switch, whether or not there's a tactile bump Etc. on the topic of noise, it's always possible to dampen the sound with rubber rings you put inside the key caps.the material and build quality of the board itself and the thickness of the plastic in the keycaps can also affect the sound in loudness of your keyboard. I personally like having a little loudness to my typing even if I'm playing a game. I think it's from all that time playing fighting games.

I know that Ducky shine uses more durable SMD LEDs, that are also on a separate PCB. The nice thing about the Ducky keyboards is that they are all driver less meaning they work on all operating systems that support USB (There might be issues with NKRO, but you can disable it with a dip switch on the back). There is software to help you program it, but you don't need it and ducky recommends you don't use it.

See what you're missing is a grasp of context. Yes, a cherry is a type of fruit. However, if you hear someone talking about a keyboard with Cherry blues, unless you're mentally disabled you'll think "Hmmm, that must be a brand name since cherries aren't blue and are unrelated to keyboards".

>>63491728
The name may confuse a normie into thinking is referring to fruit, you should have been able to tell it's referring to a brand or type of switch by context. Or maybe you're a native speaker in a language where you never had to discern something from contacts?

Ducky uses standard a 3528 SMD LED which ideally can last for 100,000 hours of continuous use, but I doubt that. Most tests online say that it's closer to 50,000 which I believe.

I always appreciate being able to repair your own electronics, but I couldn't find a guide on how to do it specifically with the Ducky Shine 6.

I looked at their site and they don't have a full set with gold legends. Qisan has a set of typewriter Style keycaps that I find awfully tempting. Somehow I doubt their quality but have a huge fetish for the early 20th century and especially American crime in the prohibition era.

They come in white with gold trim and black with silver trim. Either of them might look good next to my cat's urn if I wanted to move it back to my desk.

I much prefer them to cherry red, outemu black, cherry black. They are much much smoother. They just feel strictly superior to me. I'm a clicky fag. I've only sunk money into cherry blues but I watched this videos and almost right away bought the masterkeys pbt s with cherry silvers.
Those keycaps I have on it are fucking amazing which may be slightly biasing me. If a keyboard is a big purchase for you and you're going to be stuck with it then get it on amazon for trivial returns and don't take what you read here as gospel.

Fuck me I've been talked out of buying an RGB keyboard but my mind keeps wandering back to how much I love having all those pretty lights. I think I've caught some kind of illness. I'm looking to set up RGB strips behind my monitors so the lighting at my desk can match the lighting in my PC case. This all started when I decided to using magnetic RGB strip that came with my PC case and now I watch meme lighting all over my desk.

Still very hesitant because I bought a Corsair K65 and got burned when LED start to die after 2 months. I'm currently deciding between the offerings from ducky and Cooler Master. leaning towards Cooler Master because their RGB keyboard is a simple box with no styling and their customer service has a phone number I can call, something Corsair doesn't have for some reason.

>>63508127
I wonder if vim would be usable with that thing.

>>63508724
Agreed. There are numerous games I would rather not play with my keyboard it's why I keep a Dualshock 4 on my desk. I probably be looking to get a 10-key list if I didn't love roguelikes so much. This is despite the fact I'm perfectly fine using the vim keys.

Anyway,

Which is pointless, as mouse isn't a trackpoint and its usage has nothing in common with the keyboard's.
>Thus more efficient switching between keyboard and mouse
Not really - in any case it's a hand movement and hand can comfortably move in almost any direction. In fact, very few people keep their mouse near the level of the home row - speaking from my experience of working in 5 different offices. For some, that position can even be uncomfortable.
>Also can keep keyboard closer to centered in front of you so less wrist bend
The "muh centered" meme is quite questionable for laptops and is entirely obsolete for desktops. Off-center workstations are much more common than the attempts to center them. That's especially true for multi-monitor setups which are physically impossible to center.
Not to mention, "centering" differs greatly depending on the purpose of the workstation but none of them are obstructed by a NumPad.
People don't "bend wrists" - they slightly rotate their peripheral, body, eyes, and head all of which causes zero tension unless you're a retard.

>>63510938
>Which is pointless, as mouse isn't a trackpoint and its usage has nothing in common with the keyboard's
What are you on about?
Do you type one handed? If you're using the mouse, you'd have your left hand on the keyboard, right on the mouse. If you have to type something non-trivial, you move your right hand back to the keyboard.

>hand can comfortably move in almost any direction
No shit, really? It's not about the direction, it's about the distance you have to move.

>That's especially true for multi-monitor setups which a
It has nothing to do with centering compared to the monitor. It has everything to do with wrists being straight while on home row.

>Not to mention, "centering" differs greatly depending on the purpose of the workstation but none of them are obstructed by a NumPad.

The difference is negligible.
>It has everything to do with wrists being straight while on home row.
I believe I did say "unless you're a retard". There's literally no need to bend your wrists when using an off-center setup.
>the numpad means your mouse is even further to the side.
Which is nothing - and we're back to the dwarf argument.
