post #1381 of 1825

So, I'm typing on a Happy Hacking Lite 2 and I despise it. Horribly stiff softdome and a goofy layout. I much prefer my old dell by a long shot. The only thing I like is the small size.

You had to know what you were getting into with the layout when you bought it :P

I will note that the lite is said to be kinda bad even as far as domes go. It is of course reflective in no way of the pro.

 

Never tried topre myself, so I can't say if the pro is any good from experience. Mostly since there isn't a topre ergo board that fits my requirements.

 

Also hi Chris, this is Mitchell.

Luckily I am just borrowing it :) A friend found it for 3 bucks.

It's definitely bad even for a soft dome. I can't believe how stiff it is, and I'm a heavy-handed typist to say the least.

Most keyboards will not really hold me back, I can usually even do decent on a netbook.. but, this keyboard just pisses me off to no end and completely tanks my wpm and accuracy. I had to unplug it.

 

Hello Mitchell :) What is your daily driver keyboard these days?

Ah, Dave's hhkb I suppose.

Using my ErgoDox pretty much exclusively now. The layout is too good to throw standard keyboards in the rotation.

How is the ergo dox?
It seemed interesting but as a gamer it didn't seem all too worthwhile for me.
Had the ducky 9008g2 pro but didn't enjoy brown switches as much.
Currently using the cm quickfire TKL blue switch and I'm enjoying it a lot due to the size.
I was hoping the new ducky shine 3 would have a TKL counterpart

I would say that the ErgoDox isn't bad for gaming at all, especially for FPS. It works because the advertised 20 programmable layers can be used to configure layouts for specific games. Obviously some games may need more intensive key remapping than others, but one half of the ErgoDox should be enough for most games. Also, since you're only using one half of the ErgoDox for gaming you can push the other half off to the side (Only to be used when typing in game) so then you can have your hands ridiculously close together while playing.

Good to see others here on head-fi who appreciate good keyboards.

I'm currently using the Leopold FC700r and love it - the heavier PBT caps make a nice difference to me compared to normal caps.

Anyone else here enjoy PBT caps?

Thick PBT all the way baby!  Though I do have one board with some cherry doubleshots that's nice too, I do prefer the texture and durability of PBT.

Oh, definitely.

 

Keycaps are the one thing I dislike on a stock Filco

Anyone here try Topre?
They're always intrigued me
post #1393 of 1825

Yeah, they're very nice but also very different from MX. You would have to try it yourself to really see what it's like though.

I'm enjoying the blue switches. I felt they were a bit heavy switching from a brown.
Are topre completely silent?
Do they have a tactile feel?

I'm trying to decide whether to go ahead and try a HHKB or wait for RF 55g to be back in stock..
