Do you own one? I just bought a cheap Chinese one and I love the feel and noise and the extra space (it's a tenkeyless).

I don't have a desktop computer, so I've become a degenerate who got used to laptop keyboards. Not that cheap apple shit, I mean old thinkpad keyboards.

Mechanical keyboards are based as hell. If you spend more than an hour a day on the computer and can afford one they are extremely worth it. Its literally the only part of your computer you physically interact with besides the mouse. Having to use a regular membrane one is like using a broken cheap toy. They are unbelievably bad, getting a mechanical feels twice as good but going back it feels ten times worse.

got any recs for keyboards i can program without having to install proprietary software?

I want one but making one the way I want it would be too expensive for me, though it is something that should last me years…

 No.8974

I've been considering taking the plunge on one recently but it's kind of upsetting that all the stuff that ticks off all my boxes without major nitpicks are really expensive. Also that I have to spend a bunch of money just to test out switches before I get one.

 No.8975

I really wish Topre switches were sold in modular form so I could put them in other keyboards instead of only being found in Topre-manufactured keyboards.

 No.8976

>>8975
I think holy pandas are kinda like topres but those switches are also retardedly expensive.

 No.8977

Finally got around to getting a switch tester and I gotta say: what in the actual fuck do people like about linear switches? This is the complete lack of feeling I get when a membrane keyboard tears and wears out, it's the complete opposite of what I would think people want in their keyboards. Why don't linear switch mechanical keyboard users simply take a cheap membrane keyboard and tear it up? Same fucking effect without the cost.

I have a Wooting Two. It's pretty awesome. Sadly, it doesn't work amazingly well with Linux. Soon I hope to get around to writing a program to translate the analog key inputs into MIDI signals, and use it as a MIDI controller.

I am typing in a model m right now. Next thread

Is there something with a stronger tactile bump than brown switches without the loud clickiness of blues? I'm finding browns to be very disappointing compared to my old membrane keyboard.

Clear switches?

 No.9047

>>9046
I've had multiple people recommend this now and I don't understand why Cherry doesn't prominently list the increased tactility as a major Clear feature on their website. From their descriptions you'd think the only difference between it and Browns is spring strength.

Gateron also makes clear switches btw.

 No.9049

anyone has tried a 60% keyboard? how are they? did it take you long to get used to it?

 No.9050

>>9048
Theirs isn't related at all to the Cherry "clear" designation though. Gateron clears are low weight linear switches, while Cherry clears are heavier tactile switches.

 No.9051

>>9050
Yeah I'm retarded, I misread the chart. It seems there is no alternatives to MX Clears which sucks because Cherry is overpriced.

Yeah I like them a lot. I'm sick of rubber domes and their shitty responsiveness/feel. Mechanical are hyper responsive, easier to type on, more comfortable and better for pretty much everything. The one I have is loud as fuck but I don't really care it's worth the trade off

 No.9263

I don't get what people like about mechanical keyboards. I find it so much easier to type on a flat keyboard

Unless of course you're typing on weak tactile switches or shitty fucking linear switches. Then you might as well be using a worn out silicone membrane.

Anyone else using a split and/or ortholinear keyboard? Are they worth the switch?

 No.13505

>>13504
Split is totally worth it for comfort and ergonomics. Other stuff like whether the keys are staggered, in columns or ortholinear, or the number of keys are just a matter of preference and case use.

Model M with USB and the origin Buckling Spring actions is best
Never liked smaller designs
