30G NIZ (plum?) topre clone just arrived from china. First capacitive board and it is holyfuckingballs levels of smooth compared to cherry reds. This is easily the best keyboard I've ever used bar none.

I've got a Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro, still working like it's new from 1999, complete with a 2-USB internal hub I still use.

Is there a decent <100$ mechanical board which could possibly tempt me?

Haha, OK you got me. The fucking membranes finally came unglued from the board 19 years later.

Seriously though, I'm in college and am fucking broke. I'm using the virtual Keyboard until I get a replacement, but I don't want to buy something that isn't lifetime quality.

I'm looking at getting a 96 key layout, best I can tell is I have to spend a ton of money or get some chink shit. ZZ96 is $250-$300 and GB only, guy doesn't seem to be running another one anytime soon. RS96 is the chink shit, thought I can't find it on Ali anyways. Duck Lightsaver is $600-$700 and also super hard to find.

How do I get my hands on one?
>>
>>59953979
yeah, seems that way- i wanted something spherical anyway... first choice would be SA, but those are apparently super rare for whatever reason

that's why the matt3o drop caught my eye- looks like a similar profile

>>59953962
>greens
Weird way of saying buckling spring
>>
>>59954091
SA is not rare, but it IS bad.

SA is appealing. It looks so nice. Thicc, doubleshot, hi-profile chunks of plastic? Sounds great, doesn't it? I'm sure it does.

Problem is, they feel awful. They're tall, too tall. Switching between rows feels wrong, it makes you hate typing on a mechanical keyboard. They don't feel right, and they can really make the mech experience feel bad.

Don't do it kid

Plum makes a 96 key keyboard, but it looks like shit. Maybe try an 1800 layout instead since those are cheaper and readily available
>>
>>59954336
Extreme different. All Cherry style switch bottom out feels about 1000x times better than a model M, but cherry browns aren't tactile at all, and buckling springs are fairly tactile

Cherry browns really do feel like reds with sand in them, while buckling springs are very tactile and responsive

Why not just have domicle key caps. Then none of the edge hit problems you experience with standard keycaps would be a problem. A little more domicle than pic related but obviously not as much width and not as much length. Would this solution not make the best of every profile option?

i know this is a MECHANICAL keyboard thread, but i didnt want to start an entire thread so ill just ask here.

ive currently got an old membrane keyboard (logitech k200) and ive been thinking about getting something more flashy.

im deciding between the Corsair K55 which is a membrane

why the fuck do you want to cripple yourself with ortholinear?
If you want 60% with buckling springs then those do exist. If you're too poor to afford one, then mod it yourself. Unicomp model Ms are super easy to mod and Unicomp will even help you if you need them

Lighter switches tend to help a lot. Especially when you're holding a key down for long periods of time. Short actuation travel is very nice for spamming also.

TADA68 arrived today.
this is my 2nd mech keyboard, my first being a shitty budget gaymur gigabyte board that died on me.
I wasn't sure if it would feel much different but I was pleasantly surprised today.
I'm not sure if it's the gateron switches or the build quality but it's much more satisfying to both type and game on.
I chose red switches and was anxious that maybe that was a poor decision.
However it feels more tactile than the cherry reds I had in the gigabyte board, which is a refreshing change.

I've fallen for a lot of /g/ memes, some excellent some mediocre.
But this was a good meme and I'm glad I fell for it.

Mounted switches? Not sure how to describe it. I dont like the switches sitting "inside" the frame and depressing downwards into it, i like them to depress down towards it.
Gateron reds
Standard keycap sizes, preferably

Thats called a floating design

Thanks for putting a name to that for me.
I like everything about that board except the lack of function keys. I know it "has" them, but...
I guess a more adequate description is that i want a TKL or full board.
Also, I want rgb or white leds.

That board is definitely in my top 3 options for how to proceed right now, though.

Which keyboard should I get? The logitech g810 or pro? Right now I have a 20% off coupon code and that makes both keyboards the same price.

While they aren't standard most sets cover them. Even tai-hao and gateron offer the additional keys in their sets by default. The only ones that don't are the super cheap chinese ones for like 20 bucks. So if you do end up buying something like miami you will be covered

if you want something smooth but still mx for keycaps go gateron
if you wants an actual quiet tactile switch, the bumps on matias quiet clicks are good

>>59977832
the downside of matias is they use alps keycaps which are harder to find and have less variety in what you can find
also you have to order them from a taiwanese supplier which means long as shipping times for the keycaps
also matias make a 75% keyboard themselves

Looking for some advice aesthetics wise. I have a Noppoo choc mini because it has some cool features that are important to me. I don't want to replace it because the board is fine but I want keycaps for it. It's space bar and two shift keys are not standard. I could replace the space bar with a different color but it's going to be like a $20 key.
So right now I have a white space bar and both shift keys are gray. I'm looking for a cheap keycap set that will look good with the gray shift and white space. Any suggestions? I'm in the US

>Budget
0 - 110 USD (would prefer for under 100 USD)

>Location (continent at least)
Canada - willing to import if shipping isn't ridiculous

>Preferred switch type
Something clicky-er than MX blues. MX Blues as a fallback

>Layout
Regular QWERTY

>Form factor
TKL, or anything else compact. I need dedicated: Arrows, Home, End, Delete. Function keys would be nice too.

>Backlight
RGB preffered; if not, either plain white or none at all.

>Previous/current keyboards
Corsair K70, cherry MX Reds - sold, did not like reds
IBM Model M - broke
Ducky Mini, cherry MX Blues - currently using, would like more dedicated keys
Ducky One, Cherry MX Greens - Returned, greens felt less clicky than blues b/c of weight
Razer Ornata - On order for 75 USD, have a week to cancel. Enjoyed the "switch" at my friend's house.

worth the price but you do get what you payed for, probably a good keyboard for trying things out
>>
>>59976942
it gets in the way of the mouse. without a numpad you can have the mouse more conveniently placed. you can touch-type numbers, emulate a numpad in a layer (for example jkluio789 as 123456789), and/or use a standalone numpad.
>>
>>59976942
also
>Do you not do work involving math?
if you're doing high-level math a lot of it is just working with variables and if you have a lot of numerical input/output it's automated and copy-pasted or written to a file

That's really gay

>>59978384
for $20 it's probably ok but you might want to upgrade later on if your budget allows

gateron browns are fine to type on.
>>
>>59976942
>Do you not do work involving math?
if you're typing in enough explicit numerical values to warrant a special interface then there's something wrong with your process

the benefit of moving the mouse closer to your right hand is fairly obvious

matias quiet click or topre?

Quality post my man.

>>59979266
membranes are just awful especially as the rubber stiffens with time. even a normie would be able to tell the difference

>>59979266

>>
>>59979063
quiet click if you want anything below 200$
topre only if you're willing to go all the way with a good realforce or hhkb, otherwise don't
