You need to be more specific about what is being evaluated to be good or bad


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

Well, i dont know im a newbie to keyboards. By good and bad i mean something like "If the keys move alot, or the wobble alot, then they are bad (From side to side) " What linus commonly uses to see if a keyboard is good or bad

In that case you should look through all his published videos about keyboard reviews to see what he has to say about them.

it actually does make sense.. maybe they do not have a credit card, paypal, etc. so they cannot buy anything online. maybe they have $300 sitting around and they want new peripherals

I think a keyboard is a very personal device, with personal preferences, so I would just go to a local store and try a couple of different keyboards.

so the budget would be 300 and thats the answer (and a balling budget that would be). Anyway its obvious now the budget was in the lower end and he was looking for something close to Cherry's which could have been useful to say.

Thanks @HOOTSMON @huilun02 @geo3 @dgsddfgdfhgs @iLostMyXbox21 @OskarKE

 

i went in a store, tried some keyboards and bought the one i liked. Tactile and clicky. Some knockoff cherry mx blues

Thats exactly what i would have done. Just the clicky would have sold it for me lol
