I used to use the numpad quite a bit, but I'm getting used to going without it. I don't really do much in the way of data entry, so it's more of a convenience factor.

 

Trouble is, I can't really type essays on my laptop in the library anymore frown.gif Going back to scissor switches just feels....wrong.

No public lab is going to have mechanical switches for a few hundred computers when mass OEM rubber domes are $7-$14

I can understand the computer lab, but library? Won't that be too loud?

Thinknig of selling my Razer Blackwidow for some TKL. What suggestions can you guys give me? Prefer Cherry blue, because I type a lot. Price range around the same as the Blackwidow. The numpad is handy sometimes, but I don't do a lot of number inputs so it kinds of take up too much space on my already crowded desk. Sometihng that I can get from ebay most prefarbly since I know that will arrive in Moscow.

Brown is still loud IMO. At least that's my impression from mashing some browns at a store. Of course still not as loud as blue.

CM QFR is a solid keyboard but I think Newegg still has the Blackwidow Tournament Edition for like $55 this week with a promo code.

Not in the library quiet rooms. I don't ever need to use them, I tend to stick to the group study and common study areas.

 

I think a linear switch with O-rings would be quiet enough for silent areas though.

I also bring my mech at school. Cherry reds are quitter than rubber dome if you don't bottom out.

 

But personally, I find mouse clicks to be orders of magnitude more annoying than keyboards.

 

The reason I bring my own keyboard is mainly because I hate full size keyboards. It's impossible to have the main typing area centered with your body and use the mouse. If you do that with a full size keyboard, the mouse gets pushed so far right it's unusable. If you move the keyboard to use the mouse, then you have to bend left in order to type properly. It hurts either ways.

So I found this: http://www.vendio.com/stores/E-sports-Gaming-equipments/item/shop-mechanical-keyboard-by-sw/hpe-87-keys-tkl-mechanical-key/lid=31823169

Cheap enough, and I'm curious to try other switch other than blue. Leaning towards red, but I love the click-clack of blues. Decisions.

been using my duckyshine 2 at uni for ages now, although im on a compsci course so i guess people are more used to the beautiful sound of cherry blues xD It is a bit loud for most other people however, what o-ring size are most people using? 

 

anyone know where i could get multicoloured translucent caps from in the uk? the ducky shine has reactive lighting and i have a vision of a rainbow on my keyboard =)
