Searching for 75% or 60% keyboard - need help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was recently dissapointed by massdrops fuck up with the keycool hero 84 and I am now looking into other options to replace that one with.

My location is germany and about 150€ is my budget. The on of the challenges is finding an german ISO layout - I haven't yet decided if I can compromise on that if there is a good deal for example.

  • I was considering https://corus-kb.com/de/ but recently found some really bad reviews about them. Any experience?
  • What I also researched a few months back is winkeless.kr do you know anything about them. Their support seems helpful and their prices higher but they also offer the highest amount of customizability I have ever seen. Thoughts
  • https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/ also seems to be a very big player but I haven't researched them much yet. Seems more like a store for keyboards. Do they even offer what I am looking for?
  • Same goes for http://www.gonskeyboardworks.com/ noticed high amount of customizability but also at a high pricepoint. Yes i know they are korean just like winkeyless is

I have trouble finding 75% keyboards so i am considering 60% more and more. The point is that the 75% offers a some useful keys while only adding on row of keys.
I have a few more questions.

  • I am even considering handmaking what I want just so i can get what i want so buying only the parts is an option to. Does anybody have experience with that and would dissadvise me to do that or the other way around encourage me?
  • What about RGB in keyboards? Well, I on the side of "whatever if it is not more expensive" but since I got a GPU with RGB lighting now and LED strips behind my monitor that are also RGB (for ambient lighting) this more and more seems like and attractive option to me. Here is my question. Is white on keyboards with RGB lighting the same issue as on my LED strips for example? Can they produce white or will I end up with a blurry tricolored mess?

While discussing I will probably come up with tomse more questions but this is it for now.

EDIT: Forgot to mention I have ~110 Cherry MX blues at hadn which I might use in a DIY solution saving even more cost.

I found this site which offers ISO-layout keyboards.

http://keyboardco.com/

Their 60-75% selcetion is fairly limited and their prices are not inline with what they offer compared to the highly costumizable competition. Thanks for the suggestion but I will most likely buy somwhere else.
