Pretty much decided on buying the Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate Silent edition, it's just a matter now of shopping around to try and find the cheapest price. Right now it's looking like $156.20 AUD, unless the education discount + getting a friend to reship is any cheaper... but it's going to be a lot more effort so probably not worth it.
WASD calls them dampeners.
Infact you can probably go to a hobby shop or something and pick up a pack of o-rings that could accomplish the same thing for cheap.
I don't like how my headphones are blocking out most of the keyboard clicks. :(
Oh man, my new keyboard just arrived. Completely worth the price I paid for it, using it is an amazing tactile and audible experience and it arrived within 22 hours of ordering it. Outstanding.
(For reference, this is a Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate Silent)
I used to have one at work.
Then we moved offices and for some reason they didn't let us keep keyboards. All developers had one.
If I win this programming competition at school, I could get a 100 bucks, and was thinking I could get a mechanical keyboard with that money. I was thinking the steelseries 6gv2.
What's that website that do Black Model Ms or similar? Just got $200 to spend on a keyboard, any recommendations? A massive fan of the Model M black look.
What's the site that sells Model M's and AT101W's for $10 each or something?
black ultra classic? It'd be $130 with shipping to the UK, worth it?
For any recommendations, I just want it to be black and as fun to type on as possible (sound is not an issue as much as my friends would argue when using VOIP).
The DasKeyboard S is another I'm looking at but it seems a little pricey for what you get ($200 in the UK).
My 6Gv2 just arrived, works fine with USB, but won't work at all with the ps/2 adapter, anyone know why?
NCIX has an awesome deal on a CMStorm Quickfire Rapid for $65/free ship. This is for cherry blues mind you, if you want the red version of this keyboard then you'll have to go to the CoolerMaster store.
i've been thinking about getting a mechanical keyboard for awhile now, and before i've always had rubber dome but I didn't think the change would be that hard to get used to. At first, I saw the Das Keyboard and I wanted one pretty bad, but then a friend recommended a Thermaltake Meka G1, and I trusted their judgement and it had black switches which is what I was looking for, so I thought, i'll buy one of those. Then I saw,
Mechanicals take adjusting to.
But once you do, they're amazing to use and rubberdomes will feel awful in comparison.
My fingers get tired typing on my rubberdome in my office, it's awful.
Just found a model M my neighbors are throwing out, its missing the cable though, should I try to find it?
Personally, I'm pleased with my K90 as it provided a lot of features I wanted (back-lighting, dedicated media keys, macro keys) and seems to be rather well built (but only time will tell). I still do wonder if perhaps a different type of mechanical key would have suited me better, but I'm not going to dwell on it.
das makes an mx black version?
get the k90
Why isn't there a Keyboard with Cherry MX blue or buckling springs with nordic keyboard layout (Æ Ø Å) and dedicated media keys?
Been hunting for one for quite some time now, and I just can't find any.
I have this one:
Levetron Mech4, it's pretty sweet. It has cherry black switches and I personally enjoy the shear size of the thing.
The last page sums up the threads opinion on that particular board.
Looks better suited sitting at the control panel of the Nostromo than at a computer desk.
funny thing is without all the shit on the sides it looks like a shitty dell keyboard
What's the best mechanical money can buy without paying for brand?
I sort of meant, the best before the feel/sound/build quality of the keyboard doesn't get any better and you're only paying for looks, brand and rice. Das for example, feels like I'm paying for brand.
Like the customizer for example, is there any better sound/feel than a buckling spring mechanical?
