Blue is way louder trust me lol.. Browns sorta annoy people in the room. Blues annoy people in the room 3 walls over.
So I'm planning on getting a blackwidow with the blue MX Cherry switches since I can't find the stealth one, but from seeing the above posts are they really THAT loud? Like do they break the sound barrier or something? Because I don't want it to be so loud that I don't annoy everyone in the house, or am I just better off with a non mechanical one in that case?
My computers at one of my house, the bedrooms at the other. it was loud enough that you can hear every key stroke (I personally can sleep through it, but its just something I have a knack for apparently, it was driving mum nuts).
Definitely hold out and get Brown switches (which are still loud compared to a rubber dome, but yeah, not nearly as bad as blues)
So Filco still has the ping (noise) problem, and the whole rocking on the desk problem
Does Das have any glaring issues? I am tired of having to improvise all this crap for my dumb Filco Majestouch II
Can anyone recommend a number of decent keyboards for around €100-120? I don't really need a backlit keyboard but it would of course be a bonus, and I really don't care if the keys are loud. I've looked at Steelseries keyboards, they seem to be pretty good, but I'm not sure if those are worth the price.
Damn! My next keyboard will never have blue switches again.
While they're awesome I've died countless of times due to the switches being pressed down because I didn't raise my fingers high enough.
you get used to it
Looking for something relatively inexpensive for typing, sometimes I have to type out essays and my flatkey Razer Lycosa is just uncomfortable, I type quicker while writing essays and often find myself reaching for keys more because they're not as high as I would find comfortable, also I don't even realise if I've pushed a key or not occasionally. Preferably quieter but satisfying to type on.
Thanks guys, sorry if these requirements are too demanding, it was a long shot anyway.
Not too demanding at all. If a low actuation and quiet keys is something you want, I'd go for browns or reds. It would help if you provided a budget so we don't give you links to keyboards out of your budget. For now look at these
http://www.daskeyboard.com/model-s-professional-silent/ this is a bit of a pricey option, but it's a dream to type on.
http://www.keyboardco.com/keyboard_d...sp?PRODUCT=990 another pricey one, but a good quality board
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/coole...d-backlight-on - cheaper, with a partial backlight (for gaming of course)
just look for things from Das, Filco, Corsair, Cooler Master, WASD. Anything with browns or reds.
As I cant tell is the apple wireless keyboard (White with white keys and not metal) a mechanical keyboard? Its loud and the keys are stiff but idk if it is.
Thanks for any input.
They are chiclet keyboards, which are the total opposites of mechanical keyboards.
I am pretty sure.
Just found one of these
IBM PC keyboard, with a capacitive buckling spring switch type, as opposed to the membrane buckling springs on the Model M. This keyboard is a dream to type on, but it suffers from an awful layout, on top of being incompatible with modern computers. So I'm wondering, what modern switch type is comparable to this?
that layout is atrocious
Got my K90. I love it. Still have to get used to typing on it though. Misspelt a lot of things now ha.
Keep us posted on what you like/don't like about it. Still considering one.
I like the look of it, the lights are very very nice. The wrist rest is comfortable. Total of 54 macro keys you can program to do whatever you like so that is mad handy. The volume control knob is pretty sweet. Typing feels amazing but I make a lot more mistakes than I used to because the keyboard, while overall is bigger, the actual typing area is a lot smaller than my previous keyboard so I'm still getting used to it.
I would recommend the keyboard though.
Also, never really have to clean it the hard way, because the keys don't go into one of those deep groves like most keyboards do, they just sit on the aluminium so you can easily just blow dirt out or just turn the keyboard upside down and give it as shake. Also the keys are sweet, they won't wear off because they are laser etched. Sweet keyboard.
Yeah I guess, but I always preferred the blue lights over the red ones, just nicer and easier on the eyes I think. But yeah I recommend the keyboard anyway.
You mention the keyboard is smaller than your prevous, what is your previous? I'm on a G510 and I find that it's getting stiffer somehow over time. I notice when I play games I hit the keys so hard my desk shakes which shakes my microphone and I have to edit out all those little bumps more often.
I'm considering just getting the K90 and telling logitech to fuck their lazy asses for not coming out with something.
Eh fuck it
I bought it.
