Difficult Choice...

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So im on the hunt for a solid 60% Keyboard and i narrowed it down to 3 Choices:

 

Durgod Venus

Ducky Mecha Mini

(New) Razer Huntsman Mini

 

I need:

 

60% Layout (ANSI)

Detachable USB-C

Great RGB with Puddig Caps (buying them separately)

Solid aluminium Construction and heavy board

good switches (Gateron or Kailh)

(The manufacturer of the venus told me that the venus will have hot-swap so ill wait for that)

 

So yeah thats about it.

 

If you have ideas write the down...

Ducky only comes with cherry iirc. 

The Razer comes with their own custom switches as well iirc. 
 

Have you looked at the GMMK compact?

Durgod Venus

Ducky Mecha Mini

(New) Razer Huntsman Mini

  • Durgod x HK Venus: Cherry MX, Gateron, and Kailh BOX switches for default switch options. Current boards are not hot-swappable, AFAIK. Weighs ≈816 g (≈1.8 lbs).
  • Ducky Mecha Mini: Cherry MXs for default switch options. Weighs ≈827 g (≈1.8 lbs).
  • Razer Huntsman Mini: Optical switches, likely only compatible with other Razer optical switches. Definitely not compatible with Gateron/Kailh mechanical switches. Aluminum faceplate, plastic base. Lightest of the bunch, at ≈450 g (≈1 lb).
  • The GMMK (Compact, Customizable): Gateron and Kailh BOX switches for default switch options. Black/White Aura PBT pudding keycaps alternative keycap option. Comes with Micro USB/USB Type-C connector, but can be swapped out for a Micro USB/USB Type-C connector. Weighs ≈771 g (≈1.7 lb).

Cost-wise, I think the most effective route would be to heed @gloop's suggestion and get the GMMK. The default options available to the customizable GMMK checks off the majority of your criteria, while the other three keyboards (Durgod, Ducky, Razer) involve purchasing and replacing its switches and/or keycaps to meet your standards. As a happy owner of the GMMK (TKL), I can attest to the sturdy build quality of the board.

 

Ultimately, though, it's your money and your decision what to do with it. 😉
