Rubber Dome keyboard appreciation thread. Had this baby for over 15 years now, with zero issues. PS/2 connection WITH media hotbuttons and a sleep button that all work. Even the TWO Eject hotbuttons are flawless. How can mechanical keyboards even compete?

Not likely. It was manufactured by two other companies for Dell but it wasn't a rebadge, and the companies didn't do all that many other keyboards.

Kinesis Freestyle 2. Fantastic keyboard that won't fuck up your shoulders as much as a regular keyboard will. Typing on it feels great.

I fucking love rubber domes. Mechanical is for edgy tryhards.

>> No.64682751

Yeah that one! This is the only rubber dome I like more than a mech keyboard.

>> No.64682866

Is it just me, or are (some) rubberdomes more clicky than mechanical keyboards.
I mean, they're not as audibly clicky, but there's a much crisper tactile click where they key activates than mechanical keyboards.
All of the cherry mx keyboards I've tried feel so mushy in comparison to my rubberdome.
I haven't tried a buckling spring keyboard yet though, so I can't compare to that.

55g Topre is simply the ur-keyboard for those who prefer bump feedback.

>> No.64683476

Buckling springs are the best if you prefer click feedback to bump feedback, otherwise 55g Topre is the best option.

Mechanical is a loud, uncomfortable, overpriced meme for NEETs.

Rubber domes tend to have a very pronounced tactile bump. It's just that the bad ones tend to be very mushy.
On the other hand, crap like cherry browns is barely tactile.

If you want tactile, it's MX Clears (or other brand equivalents) or Topre.
Buckling spring is a little different kind of tactility, it's more or less linear both before and after the click, but when it clicks, it shifts to a different linear curve.

>> No.64683524

Mechanical a better, but scissors are quite good by the way.

Rubber domes just werk. My keyboard is twenty years old and it still works flawlessly. The keycaps are laser etched so there's no visible wear on them either.

I most likely would use a mechanical if more of them had a comparatively low profile... and availability. Meanwhile, I'm using pic related.

Used to be in the same boat. Got a Cherry Brown keyboard to replace my G15, however I still preferred the feel of the G15. That all changed when I got a Model M though, far superior for typing.

I dunno, has anyone used dem shits? I already know I hate the mouse. The trackpad is aight for gestural shortcuts, shit for actual pointing.

The black web wireless job from walmart is pretty dope. They were clearing them out for 9 bucks and I was very impressed. Grabbed two, one for my girls and another for when I have to tear down my mech after I spill beer on it, which happens a few times a year.
