cheapish 70% board.

Do you mean 75% like the Nopoo Choc Mini?

70% would be without the column on the right, and I don't think any readily available board has that layout. But 75% is quite obtainable. The Nopoo Choc Mini from above costs a little under 100 bucks. Does that count as cheap-ish?

Sorry I meant 75%. And yeah I would consider $100 cheapish. Sorry for the late reply.

I'm sure this has been asked before, but what are yall's favorite keyswitches?

Gateron Green. Much better than Cherry Greens in my opinion, but I didn't get to try Cherry Switches after they redid their tooling last year. Supposedly they are much smoother now.

Would also look at the Drevo Gramr, which is usually under $40 and uses the same housing as the Keycool 84.

I mean, I can just tell you why it clicks.

The plastic on it slams against the plastic on the bottom of the keyboard once the membrane is fully depressed.

That doesn't count, that would mean linear switches "click" as well when you bottom out. In a mechanical keyboard, actuation occurs before bottoming out, and the switch has to click precisely when actuating. I guess the latter is fulfilled for most keyboards, but the first criterion is what's widely used to differentiate mechs from non-mechs.

Well I dont know what kind of elitist world you're living in where a keyboard clicking at the same time it actuates doesnt count as it being clicky. Membrane keyboards actuate at the same time they bottom out. Meaning its tactile and clicky and it was much much cheaper.

Eargo clears or Zealios. If the leds are soldered into the masterkeys PCB then maybe soldering could be a option, idk

Update: Now part of the club. So far the Cherry MX browns seem very nice. Loving the simplist design of keyboard too. The A,S,D keys appear to be lower than the rest for some reason, is this normal?

Ooooh man, is anyone getting on the 2nd run of SA Carbon? Massdrop Link

 

04_20170518160947.jpg?auto=format&fm=jpg <--- Look at this sexyness!

 

I'm personally torn between getting this or hopping on the DSA Night Sky Caps. Probably gonna go carbon, because I really like SA profile.

That is a weird way to spell rubbre dome /s. 

 

Does it have hypersphere, mx sliders, or is it stock? 

 

How would it compare to hhkb. 

 

Are you going to put in the new hasu controler for 660c? Full programability.

Thick abs > pbt. 

 

Abs has deeper thock. Also abs is only plastic able to be normally doubleshot. Pbt doubleshots use pom or abs shot. 

 

The shine of abs just adds to the sexiness of sa profile, and the smoothness is awesome. 

 

Only pbt sa keyset is ice cap if you want them. Tho they are only uniform r3 not sculpted.

 

Im saying just go for it.

The world of mechanical keyboards. This thread is the mechanical keyboard club, so the word "clicky" is used in the context of mechanical keyboards. Outside of this context "clicky" can indeed be interpreted as "makes a click", but in this context, "clicky" is the property of a mechanical switch. Your keyboard is not mechanical, and nobody that is involved with mechanical keyboards would consider it clicky. While criticising this attitude as elitist is justified, you have to see that we need to adhere to some definition of the word mechanical, otherwise this would just be the keyboard club.

DSA Night Sky looks sweet. But I don't think I'll ever buy one of those sets unless it offers mono legends for special characters like Granite does. If I can't perfectly fit the set to my layout, I might just as well go with blanks of the same colour.

 

EDIT: Oh shit, I just noticed that with the Alternate Kit, this would actually fit my upcoming BananaSplit buy. Goddamnit.

Also, ABS caps aren't born equal. These caps are high quality and very thick. If it's worth the price is another question.

Meh, it might look nice, but personally, I absolutely despise the shine on SA in terms of feel, I'd rather use the more coarsely finished Maxkey SA caps than SPs offering.

 

The sleek surface of SA isn't really a property of ABS either, but of the mold. Unless you're talking about the additional shine that the caps get after being used for a while.
