  Looks good so far, are those keycaps from the QFR?  I'm on the GH60 team so I can't wait for the finalized version to arrive so I can have a 60% again!
Actually, on the poker they all cost the same... Will either get browns and swap stems or swap the stems plus springs... I really want something that's like half way in between them, but black springs are nice as well...

You'd have to find some custom Korean springs, but I agree.  I started with vintage blacks and tried just about everything until I arrived at 'ghetto reds' - I've tried all the tactile switches but I'm definitely a linear guy for sure.

yeah, I think I want something like 67g springs... also, the only tactile switch I like a lot is light gray! wink.gif

That guy is also accepting blues...you could get a monoprice board to harvest switches and trade him for cheap vintage blacks! I really want a Krytox lubed 62g Ergo Clear ErgoDox, but that's not going to be cheap unfortunately.

mwh, I harvested the clears off a $45 G80-8200 I got! biggrin.gif I had 65 for the MX Black trade, 33 to sell for some price, 12 to buy a stoner cap, and 1 to complete a friends switch tester! biggrin.gif

Woooooow....so lucky. I never score deals like those and miss all the Clack sales as well.

Same, I just saw this and was like "OH MAH GAWD! I'VE BEEN WANTING CLEARS!" Turns out clears aren't for me so I sold/traded them all! biggrin.gif

You didn't like them even with spring swaps? Have you had a chance to try Topre either?

Haven't been able to try topre, also, I got a switch tester and I love blacks, as well as light gray... wink.gif Only 2 I'm interested in now. Thinking a TKL board with the light grays and a 60% with the vintage blacks. wink.gif

I still think I'm not done with my clicky quest, I hear that some of the alps switches have really nice clicky feel like simplified white, and I haven't gotten a chance to see what jailhouse blues feel like but I'd like to try vintage blacks and reds as well.

Noppo Choco Mini  USB with Cherry MX Red switches

 

I really love this keyboard for it's precision and the sound when you hit the key- binds.

It's nice for gaming as well.

For example, there is no comfortable place for the ring finger. It lays on the edge right of the right button. That edge is really not comfortable or ergonomic. The finger ends up laying on the right button alongside the middle finger, making right clicks inefficient. 

 

And then there's the thumb buttons. In order to use them, you need to pulls back your hand so the thumb lines up with the buttons. It makes them unusable.

 

The scroll wheel does not stand high enough. Since the top of the mouse if angled, it is impossible to push the wheel to the right using your index finger. There simply isn't enough to push against.

 

I keep changing the position of my hand on the mouse simply because there is no natural position. That thing was designed for looks, not to fit in a hand.

Well it seems like all the YouTube reviews were lying to me.
Thanks will keep that in mind :D

Have been using the Das Professional S Quiet for the past few days. It's amazing to say the least.. there's still a nice tactile feeling without emitting much noise at all.

Clicky switches ended at buckling springs for me.  They just have that perfect feel for tactility, it's not quite the same with ALPS and Cherry's tactile offerings.  They are enjoyable though for sure, but if I'm going to have a Cherry based board I prefer linear.  I think i'd like Topre, that's the one switch I've not tried yet that I have a feeling would be a good match for me.  One day I'll justify getting a Realforce...one day tongue.gif

I think the FC660C wants to have a talk with you.
