    Welp cleaned up my MTek 104 and the keys appear to be working now. Defiantly feels different then the rubber domes of a G15 and the tactility/click is nice, but I'm not sure if I like it better yet. I read that you can mod white alps to be linear like the cherry black/red. Is linear any better?

    Depends. Linear is better for gaming, though I wouldn't try and fuck with a complicated ALPS. The clue is in the name.

    In that case I'm interested. What condition is it in, and how much are you looking for for it?

    Excellent condition. Keycaps are brand new condition, glossy plastic is good, but may have light marks in some places (due to it being unsaintly shiny). Looking for around 50 inc postage?

    Assuming it's the non-Ultimate one I think that's a little on the expensive side, as you can get a brand new one for 60.

    Fair point, I bought it when it was pricier. How does 40 sound?

    I feel like buying another mech keyboard, but a very small one like that "David Tennant" user had. One for games (current K90) then the other for typing.

    You could get a Noppoo Choc Mini, KBT Race/Pure or a KBC Poker. There are some others but those are the most popular from what I've seen.

    Had to open up my ducky and (thought I had to) remove all the keys so I could fix the USB port, it kept losing contact. Two of the solder... joints? were bad, fixed that!

    I'm looking for keyboards that meet the following criteria:
    NKRO with PS/2 adapter.
    No bloated gaming macro buttons. Enhanced texture for gaming keys is fine.
    Either brown or red switches (undecided until I have tried each).
    Can easily be acquired in the EU as a standard US layout.
    Optional: Extended scancode keys such as calculator, sleep, and volume control buttons.

    I really like some of the Ducky keyboards, but they don't seem to be widespread outside of Asia.

    First thought when I saw that was the Zowie Celeritas, but it doesn't have the scancode keys.

    I don't see that layout often, what is it called? The layout with a wide enter button looks more appealing to me though.

    What kind of switches would I be looking at if I wanted a more silent mechanical board? I still use skype or teamspeak often.

    From what I've heard the Das Ultimate Silent (Silenced Brown switches) is the quietest keys.. not entirely sure though.

    I have the Das Silent. It probably is really silent if you can type without bottoming out the keys, but I bottom out the keys on pretty much every stroke I make. The main difference is there isn't the slightly softer click when the key activates, like the Blue switches do.

    If you want a really silent mechanical you could grab one with Browns and then get the soft-landing pads or dampeners or whatever they're called for each key so you won't be able to bottom them out so easily.

    Just get something with any switch that isn't blues and stick some O-Rings from EKB or WASD on the keys.

    You can buy daskeyboard keyboards at getdigital.de with US layout, did it myself about a month ago, shipping is like 10 euro within EU.

    After a week of using blues I have come to the conclusion that's it's not for me. I tend to rest my fingers on the keys and the blues seem much easier to hit than reds by accident as the key kind of collapses on itself easily. I also still find the windows key kind of tough to press. Back to reds it is for me, maybe I can get my hands on a cheap brown keyboard and try that one out.

    If you have the money, you pretty much can't go wrong with Filco Majestouch-2 Cherry Browns. That keyboard has got to be the most solid keyboard I've ever got my hands on, and the typing experience is just so much better than any other mechanical keyboard I've tried (beats blackwidow's quality hundred to one). They are, afaik, quite well available in Europe, thekeyboardcompany from UK being one of the major suppliers.

    I suggest that you invest in a Das Silent, must be hard to get used to rubber domes again.

    You could always buy some key dampeners for about $15.

    Was looking at that, seems like I'd still need to get something with brown switches, going by what I'm hearing on youtube vids.. I dunno.

    Was thinking of buying a WASD Keyboard, and got this:


    and it turns out postage is 33, so that makes it 115, quite expensive, is it worth it?

    I'm really annoyed, I want brown switches, but if I bought a keyboard with brown switches from WASD, they're out of stock and they won't get the switches until around the 25th, which means I won't get the keyboard until much later.

    Only alternatives are black, red, or blues, and I'm not sure which is the best for both typing and gaming (I do a lot of both.)

    edit: ugh, double post, sorry.

    Add another 20 for customs fees aswell Jellyman.
    It'd be cheaper to get a Filco and some custom keycaps, better build quality and you can get tenkeyless which you should always do if you don't use the numpad.

    Wait, 82 for the keyboard, another 33 for postage, and then an additional 20?

    Edit: where could I buy a filco, and custom keycaps? I'm really only looking at WASD because of the convenience with customization.

    I also don't see how it'll be cheaper, UK Filco Majestouch-2, Tenkeyless is 114 inc. VAT, custom keycaps for what I want it to look like (would pretty much be replacing all the keys) would make it come to a lot more, wouldn't it?

    edit 2: Did the math, it'll be cheaper to get a WASD keyboard than a Filco with custom caps.

    Yes, there's descriptions in the original post explaining, browns have a tactile bump with less noise than blues, reds are less noise without the bump.

    Actually it seems it'll be cheaper to buy a Filco tenkeyless for 114, and then buy custom keycaps for it in the future.

    because if my math is right, WASD would come to about 150.

    I don't think they include VAT in the price.

    82 + 20% = 98.4 + 33 postage = 131.4

    and then if I'm right, David Tennant said another 20 for customs fees, I may have it wrong, however.
