    PBT vs ABS which is better

    I mean the most expensive keycap sets are all ABS.

    Triple shot key caps the rgb grows

    There would be a few issues with that, currently the only tripleshot maker is JTK iirc. Which's keycaps look like this. As you see, the bottom legend shot, blocks the sub-legends. One major issue will be light bleed, most keycaps have nothing except for the stem blocking the led from reaching the other part of the cap, which in the case of a board with 2 leds would create a huge amount of light bleed between the 2 leds, making the argument of having better contrast useless. Also, currently switches only allow for 1 led, unless you make a super niche custom switch, I do not believe there will be any keyboard/switch that can take advantage of this feature. You're better off just getting some normal tripleshot jtk caps, they have great contrast but do not allow for leds to shine through.

    PBT vs ABS which is better

    There are 3 main types of keycap materials. ABS, PBT, and POM. ABS is technically the inferior material as it yellows when exposed to UV, melts at a lower tempreture, and does not retain texture well. POM is a very dense plastic, denser than even pbt, which allows for a bassy sound, however, it is quite slippery. PBT is arguably the best keycap material as it is relatively dense, and retains texture well. Also, POM and PBT won't yellow. However, keycap material isn't the end all for keycaps. There are many other factors like profiles and the legend method. Traditionally doubleshot injection was only possible with ABS, but now there are many producers of doubleshot pbt, however, these pbt doubleshots use POM for legends, however, some of revered keycap makes like GMK and SP use ABS. Dye sublimation with is also one of the superior methods of printing legends (But is inferior to doubleshot in terms of contrast), is only possible with PBT due to its higher melting temperature.

    Logitech G903

    Mainly just power play compatibility. It also has other minor differences, like 50m Omron D2FC instead of 20m iirc, so they should in theory last longer, also there are some minor colour differences, the g903 has some more silver/gray accents. The G903 is arguably the better mouse, but not by very much.

    Help me to resist urge to buy this ridiculous thing

    That's subjective, they're quite polarizing switches. Also, I've heard that Leopold are refreshing their topre line, they just updated the fc980c and they added an option for 30g domes, so they may have discountiued the current model/batch and the vendors are just waiting on a new batch.

    Are mx browns really that bad?

    bruv, you're not a real keyboard enthusiast unless you have a board with hirose oranges or at least nixies.

    Are mx browns really that bad?

    On keyfeel (subjective), smoothness (objective, but is subjective whether you like it or not), key wobble, lifespan, durability, sound, and much more.

    No, he uses zeals.

    Well, those are linear switches and not very good ones either in terms of smoothness. OP wants tactile switch.
  10. A decent wireless keyboard I would recommend would be the anne pro 2, its quite cheap and it's pretty good as a travel keyboard, or if you have a spare kidney, you could get something like a hhkb bt or a hhkb with a hasu bluetooth controller.

    Good wireless gaming mouse

    It does use a variant of the D2FC switch I believe the 10m variant I wouldn't say awful, they're the industry standard.

    I hope they do another run of the tgr jane, that board is pretty naice.

    Any Keycaps for Romer-G Switches?

    CUSTOM KEYCAPS These are just basic oem wasd keys and other stuff, not what op asked for.

    Wireless Mouse

    Cheap? It's the same D2FC Omron switches that most brands use. Razer, Some SS, Logitech, and some asus mice use these or modified versions of the D2FC switch. Omron switches are often regarded as the best mouse switch.

    It doesn't dampen the sound of the click or the upstroke, only the bottoming out of the downstroke, it also can make a switch feel like shit.

    need Highend keyboard

    Tealios are quite similar but a lot smoother, and ever so slightly heavier like 5g heavier. https://kbdfans.cn/collections/fully-assembled-keyboard/products/fully-assembled-tofu-60-keyboard?variant=17810657116218 190usd Here is a fully assembled one, the switch I would recommend would be Tealios, which imo is a lot better than mx reds. Just get some Gmk caps and you'll have a great keyboard.

    need Highend keyboard

    If you're going high-end, I wouldn't go for cherry switches unless they're like hiroses or nixies (but then that's just stupid). for 250€ you could get a board with Tealios, Creams and many other much smoother linear switches. Good EU vendor would be https://mykeyboard.eu/catalogue/category/keyboard-kits_36/. You can also use KBDFANS, they have free shipping, but it will take a bit longer to ship.

    The Thicker click bar allows for more tactility and a fuller more deep sound. I suggest you get a switch sampler, KBDfans offers a very good one with lots of switches. You can get a hotswap TKL like a GMMK or massdrop CTRL which allows for more exotic switch types.

    Box whites are a click bar switch, but I prefer the thick clickbar switches like Box Jades. You can find them in the Anne Pro 2 I think.

    Gateron switches are quite a bit smoother than cherrys but have more wobble. Gateron Blue sounds slightly higher pitched but not by much in my use. If you want clicky switches try to look for box clickbar switches.

    If you really want sharper tactility, you could build a GK64 RGB + Box Jades + 60% Case + Plate which would run you maybe 125-200usd.

    Cherrys aren't much better, and OP said he wanted sharper tactility without the click, and tactility is something that cherry is quite shit at.
