Yes please. You've got me interested in carbon film.

I agree, I want a video too, I was looking at this for carbon fiber... it will match the Fractal Design R4 I've been wanting (With the side panel window).

Hey Tangster, did you use the water transfer printing technique for that mod on your keyboard? Been doing some research, looks interesting.

I am currently typing this post on a Noppoo Choc Mini with black switches.. I have a Poker with red switches, Ducky Year Of The Dragon with brown switches, Leopold FC700R (white) with blue switches and a rusted Razer Blackwidow..

 

(No, I did not spill anything on the BW to make it go rusty, only conclusion that can be had is it wasn't finished correctly or something)

 

Not sure what my favourite switch is though.. Oh and I have way too many custom keys :p

Don’t bother spending money on keyboards with LED backlighting, or spend a lot of money on a Cherry MX board - the price range can be pretty large for keyboards that are all using the same switch.

If you care about your fingers, buy Topre.

No, I used the cheap vinyl based carbon effect overlays they use in pimp my ride style modding.

From using one, or from listening to people that claim it's “not a mechanical switch”? (it is)

Key feel is just wrong. I like my tactile point in the same place as the actuation point.

Have you actually used a Topre keyboard?

Topre:

MX Brown:

The tactile bump and operating point are about the same on Topre keyboards (<1mm) but the key travel is much smoother and force decreases after actuation, rather than increasing. (at least on the heavier weighted switch, which the HHKB uses)

I dislike Topre. Get over it.

hey now, don't be a meany-head - he was simply pointing out that a topre DOES put it's activation and tactile bump in the same spot, which you claimed to enjoy, as opposed to the browns (and even moreso for the blues).  it's ok if you don't like them, but chill out!
