Razer is stepping up its game:
Razer has announced a new optical switch in their huntsman keyboards called opto-mechanical. Built by A4tech for Razer, it features a clicking mechanism for tactile and auditory feedback while using an optical sensor for lighting fast response times. Razer expects 1.5-2ms of input lag thanks the lack of debounce times compared to the 8-10ms if a standard mechanical switch.
Some specifications
Actuation Force: 45g
Actuation Point: 1.5mm
Total Travel Distance: 3.5mm
Durability: 100 million clicks
Compatible with Cherry MX keycaps
If these switches look very similar to Bloody's Light strike switches, it's because A4tech is the OEM for both of them, similarly to how Kailh and Greetech are the OEM for Razer's green, yellow and orange switches.

While on the subject of Razer switches. Razer is now allowing third parties to use their switches and software. The new Ducky Shine 7 for example will feature Razer switches in addition to cherry MX switches. Additionally Razer is also allowing third party keyboard manufactures to use chroma software and sync up with the entire chroma ecosystem. MSI, NZXT, AMD, Thermaltake, Lian Li, Vertagear, Gigabyte and Ducky have all been given access to the chroma API

>Location (continent at least)

>Preferred switch type
This is where I need he most help. I like Topres (45g) a lot. This keyboard will be for work and I don't want to spend as much, so Topres are out of the picture. Cherry Blues are nice, but the clicky might be too loud. Browns feel like a linear key with sand in them. Clears are a bit too stiff for my tastes. Any suggestions?

Just got my Hako Royal Trues today and I'll give you guys a bit of a review. They are an interesting switch. Extremely tactile, I would say the tactility is similar to that of a heavier dome. The hako spring effectively keeps me from bottoming out after the bump so in terms of weighting it's exactly what I've been wanting. On the return these things really pop back up, so I would say that the reset is even more tactile than the downstroke.

Conclusion: I like them better than BOX Navies.

Okay, so I swapped a navy spring into a hako royal and vice versa.

Hako Royal/Navy Spring: Guaranteed bottom out but doesn't really lose that much tactility, except on the upstroke. Definitely worse than stock.
Box Navy/True Spring: Not noticeably that much different from standard box navies, except for a more cushioned landing after the click. Definitely would help keep you from bottoming out on box navies but wouldn't be worth the time it would take to spring swap all your switches.

I'm actually willing to buy a new keyboard even though my current Cherry MX Blue keyboard is in perfect condition, purely because I hate the switches.

As far as the blues go i dont mind their tactility, they actually feel good unlike browns but im not a huge fan of them when i raise the key slowly.

I have a ducky shine 3 with greens at the moment, first mech I ever bought
Had it about 3 and a half years and it's alright but the high actuation force and the noise is starting to bother me
Also about 60% of the backlights are broken and the spacebar sticks like a bastard even though I've taken it appart and cleaned it several times

Cheers lads

Looking for a numpad for 3d work. (Or even a whole keyboard if the numpad is on the left but everything else is in the standard config. I like keyboards that don't have any wasted space.)
It'd be better if the numpad matched the style of my current keyboard but I could 3d print a case, so just the board, switches and caps would be fine too.

>> No.66562655

I love the damn thing. From what I've heard the QC issues were an early batch problem. Mine has no issues whatsoever -- no keycap issues, usb port feels solid as a rock (I drunkenly tried to shove it in upside down one night for about 5 minutes and managed not to fuck the port up)

Mine has clears and it feels awesome as someone who types with a lot (unnecessary) force

The only issue imo is the non-standard layout which makes it hella expensive or impossible to get replacement keycaps, depending on the set. The good news there is that the stock keycaps are simply excellent and the only reason to replace them would be for aesthetic purposes, so the extent to which the non-standard layout bothers you will just depend on how much of a faggot you are.

Be aware that backlit PBT keycaps are pretty damn rare. The vast majority of transparent-legended keycaps are going to be ABS (which will start shining within a few months of use). So you'll have to either compromise on this, compromise on keycap quality, or be severely limited in choice.

Regular oil is a conductor as are common dry lubes like graphite. You need silicone oils/grease or plastic dry lubes like teflon.

If you want open source hardware then QMK is pretty much it, but there aren't that many keyboards that support it so your options are limited.

I'm a fag and didn't bother trying to see which switch I like the most. I know I don't like blue or greens though. Would prefer giving black/clears a go. Finding these big keyboards are sort of obnoxious, and I'll opt for a small one instead with a TK addon for the off times I do need it. Bonus points if the keyboard is easy to take apart/clean somehow.

Tada68 is cheap, in the sense that it's pretty much the cheapest board you can get that doesn't have anything wrong with it. If you're not a hobbyist and just want something to type, then a tada68 is basically just as good as any $300 ultra meme group but Korean custom kit.

Those $20-40 cheap chink boards will probably have Outemu switches (which are the bottom of the barrel in not just price, but also quality) and cheap, shitty, thin ABS keycaps. Those are the main two issues. They also almost all have shitty gamer aesthetic. In any case it doesn't really matter what you buy due to these issues that they will all have, so nobody is going to recommend you anything, just grab whatever looks less disgusting to you.
