    If you connect more of them, you can make a full-on belt with only watches. It'd be a complete waist of time!

    🤔
    Out of Glorious's switch offerings, for a first-timer, I'd be inclined to try:
    Glorious Pandas (Tactiles): A tad expensive, but they've been generally well-received by the community. No personal experience with them, can't definitively say what they feel like. Kailh BOX Black/Red (Linear): Fine starter switches for peepos dipping their toes into linears. Adequately smooth that first-timers won't notice anything off. Kailh BOX White (Clicky): Decent clicky switches with a noticeable tactle bump and a crisp click, generally well-received by the community. A shame that Kailh BOX Jades/Navys aren't included on the list. But perhaps try the BOX Whites first, before jumping on the clicky train?
     
    Note that Kailh BOX switches are a bit limited when it comes to switch modding -- BOX stems and housings aren't interchangable with MX stems and housings, spring/stem diameters for BOX switches are smaller than MX switches, BOX housings probably aren't compatible with switch films (sized for MX housings) -- but lubing (on selective parts) should be fine.
     
    Also, have a personal bias against Kailh's Speed switches (Bronze, Copper, Silver, Gold). I have a set of Kailh Speed Golds (clickys); actuation and tactility is inconsistent between switches, tactile bump is soft and sometimes nonexistant, and click acoustics is not as sharp or clean as Kailh BOX Jades/Navys. Only thing they have going for them is actuation is closer to the switch's resting position, but even that can be an annoyance for peepos that like to bottom out on their keystrokes. 
     
    Nothing against Gateron's basic switches (Black, Blue, Brown, Clear, Green, Red), but nothing about them particularly stands out to me. They'll be more receptive towards switch modding compared to BOX switches, I suppose.
     
    No strong opinions on Kailh Purple Pros (Tactile), no personal experience with them. They seem to be equipped with heavier springs (50g - 70g) and have shorter actuation distances compared to Kailh's non-Pro switches (e.g. Kailh Browns)? Also comes equipped with standard MX stem and housings, should be receptive towards switch modding.

    Thanks for all the incredible information! I have looked through and I think the gmmk is going to be my best option for now. When I order from their site, I think I’m going to get some extra switch sets to try some things out. It comes prebuilt with Gateron Browns (but i can change it to a customized one if these are bad switches). 
    The other switches they have for sale are:
    Kalih
    Gateron 
    I’m thinking of getting 2-3 additional switches, do you think any of these would be good to try? I’m looking to test a wide variety until I can narrow down what I really like.

    zeusthemoose reacted to colonel_mortis in What's this "pending approval" thing?…   
    It's because you included the name of a male hormone in your comment, which caused it to get flagged as possibly spam and thus require moderator approval before showing up for anyone else.

    what about the keychron c2?

    zeusthemoose reacted to Eschew in So I have been using the vortex vibe…   
    Ah, sure. 👍
    Keychron C2 (Full-Sized): High Profile Plastic Case. Detachable USB Cable. Only available as a full keyboard, no barebones options. Available in hot-swappable or soldered variants. Firmware/Software is locked to Keychron's stuff. IIRC, keys aren't reprogrammable. PCB accepts both 3-pin and 5-pin switches. Uncertain whether the PCB is equipped with plate-mounted or screw-in stabilizers, and whether it accepts screw-in stabilizers. Different variants have limited availability on Keychron, check Amazon for other possible stock.

    These are the differences in the specs of them:
     
    I dont know how this correlates to noticeable differences but I would imagine they are similar but not the same.

    For some hot-swappable, full-sized keebs:
    There'll be very limited customizability when it comes to aftermarket keyboard cases for full-sized keebs. Switches and keycap sets shouldn't be too much of a problem, however.

    I 100% agree. Talking about tech news with you is definitely a highlight of my forum experience. Once school ends in like 6 weeks, I would love to continue where we left off and start making tech news posts again.

    Not really looking, just was browsing and thought about checking the trade in value. The 7th Gen is fine for OneNote, but it frequently reloads my textbooks because OneNote is such a RAM hog.
