Averaging about $220 on keyboard stuff each year, usually one keyboard and one cap set a year.

I've got six keyboards (one was a free Model M) and 5.5 keysets. Seems overboard to me even though that's pretty much nothing for a hobby.

looks like chink shit. My worry with cheap hot swap sockets is that the switches don't sit properly and will lead to chatter and switches not registering . If you want a full size version get the z77

I not the fastest typer, are they fairly silent when going at a medium pace?
There's noise from the keycaps striking the switch housings. They're definitely quieter than blues or clears, but not as quiet as rubber domes unless I'm very careful to type slowly.
I went for 70g springs instead of the 80g or 100g options. Maybe the higher resistance on those would contribute to making it easier to type quietly. I can't really say.
On a side note, how comfortable is the MT3 profile I'm thinking about jumping on the buy.
They're fucking great. A lot of people have been complaining about legend alignment problems but I don't see any on mine. I got a pretty boring set, though. Anyway, they look like a modernized SA, but feel much comfier to type on. The entire home row has a bit of a scoop to it.

Why the fuck is the G610 Orion Brown literally impossible to buy if you live in the UK? I know UK layouts exist of it as I've seen YouTube videos, amazon.co.uk only has some shitty orion reds sold by third parties though.

I got the TKL Eagle garbage because it was really cheap. The stock switches (Outemu blues) seem fine. Some combinations of modifiers with arrow keys don't register, though, so I don't use it much. It's definitely a piece of shit.

Robert Fisher

My only other point of comparison is Matias Quiet Clicks, which are better at damping both the downstroke and upstroke. The tradeoff is, they wobble a shitload (so all the keys rattle, stabilizers or not) and sometimes you just get bad switches that chatter forever no matter how many times you resolder them. Also, they have Alps-style stems instead of Cherry-style stems, so you need Alps-compatible keycaps.
Aliaz uses the same style of in-stem damper as those, so in theory, they should be just as quiet. Which is why I brought up the keycaps...

Asher Sanders

Is it a bad thing?

Charles Scott

Well cherry mx brown in general just isn't well liked anymore, lots of chinese clones are better now. If you want brown I suggest gateron brown. Typing this message on them now and they're much smoother and crisper than cherry brown.
If you're going to get a board with a cherry switch I personally suggest getting one of their linears. The mx speed switch is guaranteed to be retooled(means it was made using their new molds and is smoother) and they're factory lubed. MX black is also a good choice and the MX silents are well liked.
$140 is just too much for a basic TKL(nice caps though) with cherry browns.
Leopolds are restocking next month and are way better than varmillos(I have one of each).
This is a better switch if you don't mind linear mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=2843
You could get a tada68 with gateron browns for less and they have great after market compatability for keycaps and cases
ebay.com/itm/TADA68-fully-assembled-mechanical-keyboard-with-Gateron-and-Cherry-switch/253250240298
If you want a much better tactile than gateron or cherry brown then you could get a sabre68 or sabre60(this ones cheaper) from originative with mod-h tactile switches

Hope this helped

Aiden Foster

Cause Cherry got complacent thinking their mx switches were the bees knees. Then the chinks and the gooks are innovating basically making better switches and offering more options for enthusiasts. Now Cherry is shitting themselves trying to innovate, but they have been complacent for so long that their innovations such as the silent reds and blacks (WHICH ARE FUCKING LINEAR SWITCHES AND QUIET ENOUGH) are extremely boring.

wobbly
Funny considering MX Clears is one of the most wobbly switches around.

Just turn them off faggot but you're a turbo faggot if you buy a dare-u right now So much exciting low profile shit is coming out that if you like a short throw you should be in eternal orgasm mode.
Cherry is bringing out a low profile, kailh has the low pro blues in the dare u but they also now have low pro thick clicks on novelkeys and a few other variants and theres a new butterfly clicky mechanism coming out that I'm super hyped for.
It looks like pic related but with a blue stem where that little piece of rubber is. I saw the pic earlier today but I can't find it at the moment.

is the low profile in the switch or the board? might be a retarded question but its worth asking

it could be on both components but its usually the switch that's flatter, cherry for example made a switch displaced into the pcb meaning that for had wired build or some strange custom pcb it could give you a very very flat keyboard

feel like the gmmk tkl is nearly the same thing.
It's a lot less expensive, but less customizable. For example, the right modifiers are set up as pic related, and you can't remove the Menu key, or rebind Fn to Caps Lock or anything like that. I think I'd pay a little more for a nice aluminum case and a reprogrammable controller. Dunno if I'd pay $200, though.

Only if you're forcing yourself to bottom out.

Your options for customized keyboards improve a lot with a separate numpad.
When I was considering a tada68, I was already eager to get rid of an attached numpad but had some difficulty convincing myself about losing the f-row.

Then I realized I don't play games much anymore, and the f-keys I did use could be rebound.

guess it's because of the new connector. that keyboard came out in Christmas so I guess three months later all these little issues are beggining to come out.
