The advantage of rubber-dome switches is that they're cheap as hell to make, so in situations where you just need a lot of keyboards, they're the better choice (e.g., a rubber-dome keyboard that "just works" can be gotten for like, 10USD. Compare a good mechanical keyboard, which can run for 80USD and up).

i know exactly what you mean by cheap mass production :) so the logitech with LCD..is rubber dome? hmm that took a lot of fun out of it :/

Yeah, the G19 uses rubber dome switches. Also, the keys are wiggly as hell - makes for a lot of errors and mistakes when typing.

Anyone ever tried this board?

 

POM-Material-Plunger-Design.jpg

 

It uses these^ "plungers" which adds a tactile feel to the rubber dome underneath. Purchased it, and while it's no Cherry Brown, it's an interesting keyboard to maybe try out as a mechanical alternative.

Like I said these aren't the consumer product it's the "pro" audio line and they came with the rest of my stereo equipment as a trade they might not be audiophile grade but I like them and sure

they don't sound as great as the totem speakers we use in the entertainment room but they still pound out the tunes wink_face.gif
 

 

Plus why be snobs about my speakers on a headphone forum :/

 

sorry if this seemed a little defensive just didn't like people jumping to conclusions is all

 

loving some of these setups tho some of you guys have GREAT desktop setups makes me jelly :P.

don't worry i know what you mean. if you analyze my post you can tell. It's common knowledge amongst some here about this placebo and bias but like i also said.....as nobody else thinks Bose isn't as top notch as they try to sell themselves as, we need to be a bit more extreme in what we post here .

haha not exactly. my logitechs...sound "good" in a sense. it has over powering bass that my consumer self likes at times. and like i said in another post. after demo'ing i found that i would need to spend over $600 to get speakers to sound just good for me...so of course my logitech's for $150 were a steal.

vOv I got my Creative Gigaworks T40 Series II for 100USD (on sale from Newegg) and they're pretty much amazing for PC speakers (I'm not trying to do home theater or speakerphile stuff).

This is where I'm working at the moment. This simple setup is crammed onto a very small, very old desk that I love.
