I think I might of had a bit of a bump on the head at some point last week... Just bought a Phantom PCB and Teensie 2.0 Controller with some green MX switches! Going to get some brown/ blues and clears when they are back in stock!

 

Also these little guys came through in the post :D ( They are Knockoff K3KC caps)

Good choice on the green switch! I might have change my view on filco

Just received a KUL, will do a review comparing that KUL with filco and leopold

but first impression, KUL looks really good

I got it so it would match my new Keycap set!

Well, I have had a ducky, Filco and a CM Storm and I have to say that the Ducky is the best so far. With the CM storm and filco being almost identical. The only nicer thing the CM storm has over the filco is a detachable cable.

 

I bought this Phantom PCB but need to buy or get made a custom plate for it. Any idea who thick it needs to be? I have the 2D design from GH but just need to know how thick it needs to be...

 

Or does anyone know where I might be able to buy a new premade one from?

I was going to get a KUL to try out, but I just don't like the way the sides of their cases look. I still think Filco has the best looking stock case available.

 

Do you have any of the ping, or squeaky stabs that other people have mentioned having with their KUL?

You might wanna throw that question over GH

but pretty sure you can use the thickness of your filco plates since the phantom is compatible in filco case :)

I might give it a closer look once I got home

Only had 3 minutes of look when I unbox it than I've to fly away :(

I also get the replacement case, and I see quite a bit of flex in it

Anyone have any recommendations for keycaps? I'm new to the mechanical keyboard scene but I'm very much enjoying my new keyboard. I don't necessarily need new keycaps but I might be interested in the future. I have the corsair K95 RGB with browns and it's beautiful <3.

I have just jumped on there. I am also watching the bay for any dead Filco or CM storm TKL keyboards now. I can always get the plate as a part.

After a little research, it is 1.5mm thick.

 

However, if anyone is interested. Here is a link to a group buy which might happen in the near future...

Hello guys,I want to buy K70,so before buying I played a little on my friend's k70 mx red switch keyboard and I found out that the spacebar had something like loose and loud sound which kinda wasn't nice for ear's ))) Do you guys experience the same with your keyboards or it's just my friend's keyboard's spacebar is faulty ? Maybe o-rings will change something or not ?

I also didn't like the sound and feel of my K70's spacebar with mx browns. The o-rings improved it A LOT, feels and sounds more stable. Didn't like the o-rings on all my keys, but the spacebar and backspace surely benefit from them.

 

Hope this helps.

Your stuff looks good man! I am liking the keyboard!

 

All my stuff has landed in the UK now! So I am just waiting for it to be delivered! I have also made some good progress on finding somewhere to make me a plate. I also have the group buy as a backup currently...

I'm looking forward to my first Ducky keyboard, I almost jumped for the Razer Chroma cause it was bit cheaper, but thought meh non cherry switches not worth.

You're going to love the shine 69 if you're a gamer.

MX Greens on the letters and MX blues on the mods really feel VERY nice, and is a lot more fun than a basic MX Brown setup.

You won't be pressing shift or space at all, by accidental presses, however the MX greens WILL take some getting used to.  Be prepared for lots of typos until you train your muscle memory and the switches break in a bit.

I have just finished installing all the switches on my board! I am in love with green switches! Feels so nice! I am quite heavy handed so these greens press just right!

Nope, I havent seen that one before! Haha

I just thought the switch layout was good for me! With brown switches for normal typing, harder to hit clears for the ctrl, spaces etc and the heavy greens for thing I would only hit with one finger anyways...

 

I also purchased a stainless steel plate for my phantom today! Cant wait to build that one!
