The only easily reachable thumb keys on the ergodox are the two 2u keys (and maybe the two lower 1u keys if you have larger hands). It's a pretty old board by now so since it was designed there have been several boards that have better thumb clusters.

The inner keys are too far away to reach without moving your hands or having salad fingers. Also no tenting there.

It's better than the ergodox in a number of ways (like being able to angle the thumb cluster down). I'm sure its thumb keys are easier to reach too. Were it up to me I would've kept the 1.5u keys on the side and moved down the pinky column more.

Are metal cases the best choice, or can I simply go with a plastic + steel plate? I'll put foam in it and lube the switches.

Also, is it worth it to design your own PCB? How do I learn it? I want Bloomer rev 3 but change the bottom row, add one pinky column, explode function keys, add more keys to middle columns, change the column stagger. Should I fork Bloomer or will making from ground up be easier?

I used to think they were overblown until my pinky was going numb (not quite emacs pinky since I'd already remapped caps to Esc/Ctrl as you see even normies mention). Switching to a split keyboard helped my posture massively, and a little tenting helped the pinky issue.
What really changed the game was overloading my home row to act as mod keys if held, which you can do in software (kmonad is a lot like what I'm about to suggest) but it's platform independent with QMK. I do still get some numbness working on laptop kbs but that's because I've already damaged the nerve.

What's so "smooth" about Gateron Yellows? I mean, my only experience touching mechanical keyboards were with unlubbed black Gaterons. I'm using a membrane keyboard where I need to make some force to activate the mechanism which move the key into the bottom instantly, i don't feel any kind of control in that moment, it's like I don't know, putting your finger in a plastic film, and pushing enough to broke it, and then your finger passes from the "I'm making a little effort trying to break this film" to "my finger passes all the way through the hole and I couldn't control it until it's actually it's all down there through the film". Sorry for my shitty english and shitty explanation but I hope you can get it. Does the lubbed Gateron switches has a better feeling that my membrane keyboard? In which way?

>> No.80926818

Could be almost anything, that's the most generic TKL layout possible.

Plain aluminum case, no identifying marks, no special features.

it might have something that identifies it on the bottom plate, but from that picture alone it's basically impossible to say what it is with 100% certainty.

At the critical stage of the game, you just want your keyboard to keep up with your hand, and you don't want the keyboard to limit your APM. PLUM adopts super scan technology, which improves the response speed of the keyboard to a new level. Press a key, the signal will be transmitted to your computer within 0.001 seconds, and get feedback. Players of any type of competitive games need a keyboard whose performance can exceed their limits, because only in this way can they become better and not limited by equipment.

It's a Chinese company/manufacturer making them and the keyboards do have a plastic case. The RGB in them (if you choose it) isn't complex, and hotswap is just a different PCB/socket design.

It 100% happens with mini USB too, it's just thicker and can take slightly more torque, though it can also more easily damage the port on the device that way.

USB-C is far from "brittle", maybe you're buying shit cables or something, but I've never had a port fail over 3-4 years of regular (daily) use.

Only phones because those are basically the only things that use USB C. It's a waste since you won't use anything above USB 2.0 on those anyway.
>A keyboard that stays stationary and plugged in almost 24/7 for months on end?
Type C would work fine for connecting to the keyboard itself if it had strain relief either in the form of that screw standard or the traditional kind where it's plugged into the bottom of the keyboard and then goes through some channels, but most type C keyboards seem to have it connect straight to the side of the board with no strain relief whatsoever. It's gonna wear out just from the effects of gravity. But it's a problem if Type C replaces Type A on the actual computer side of things as well.
>Or something like a phone that you're plugging in potentially multiple times per day?
I've had Type A USB drives which are often disconnected for far longer and they have never failed. I don't think unplugging is a very big factor, it's the strain caused by gravity itself, or even just tiny nudges on the keyboard for example.

USB-B was great for what it was used for, primarily external hard drives. There were cables that had Type-A on both ends that could be used as well, but I haven't seen any harddrives that did this. What could have been done was to phase out Type B and use Type A on both ends.

It's gonna wear out just from the weight of the cables. Plugging and unplugging is not a factor.

>In 1994 today’s vast array of keycap color options was a pipe dream. At the time, keyboard manufacturer Cherry Corp was an industry leader when it came to reproducing colors. To showcase their capabilities, they created two sample keyboards—but little did they know how important they’d become. Meaning “handmade” in German, Handarbeit is a faithful recreation of the colors from the now-iconic piece. Jumping from purple to red, yellow, and blue across a single row, the keycap set comprises bold primary colors that have become legendary in the collector community. Sculpted in tall SA profile, SA Handarbeit is made of doubleshot ABS plastic for a long-lasting construction and comfortable feel.

the rest for you hand is pretty nice too, the cushioning on the palm is comfortable. buttons are great. i do wish the rubber on the mouse had a bit more friction, it's just flat rubber on the bottom. but as i get more used to it i really dont need to apply as much pressure and i dont find it sliding usually.
