Keyboard-Fi - Page 108

post #1606 of 1616

I just bought a CM Quickfire TK with MX Green switches. The Green switches are not very good for double tapping, but they're the best typing switches I've used, right up there with the Model M, though I think the Model M has longer switch throws. Definitely heavier than MX Blues, which is exactly what I wanted! Also, the keyboard is very compact, fits right above my Asus G51 laptop's keyboard. The backlight is atomically bright at full tilt. I love the combo number pad and key pad... that's the real star of the keyboard. Super thick, high quality feeling USB cable.

 

The only real problem I have with it is that there are some drivers that need to be installed before the keyboard is usable, which is somewhat annoying if you're using public computers and this keyboard.

I have no idea, I had the same problem. When I decided to build myself an ergodox the problem went away though =)
Edit: Ordered from the US ofc...

I have one of those 4 mx key testers and I've been playing with it for almost a year. Still to this day I have no idea what color I want. I know blue is absolutely out of the question because of the noise. I keep going back and forth between red with the ring and black without. Brown doesn't seem that great to me. I see people mentioning other colors.

 

With that said what color is best to type with since I do probably 80% typing.

I use blues with the o-ring mod to reduce the noise level, it's tolerable. If not blues I would go with reds, just my personal preference however.

For a mainly typing board, consider looking at Topre options. I have a brown TKL gaming board, but for pure typing my 65% topre board is so, so, so much better.

I support this too, I think blues are excellent for mainly typing, but the reds are excellent too

Clears are the best for typing imo. The "new" green ones are apparently also very nice if you like the old IBM keyboards.

Use to like using supposed gaming keyboards.. Razer..Steelseries etc.. but made the switch to Mechanical and never looked back.

 

Keyboard i use at home: Topre Realforce 104-UBDK ( keyboardgasm!!, whether be it working away or gaming )

Keyboard in the office: Filco Majestouch Ninja (Cherry MX Blue keycaps)

 

Topre feels..soo..goood.. 

 

Other keyboards i use: Happy Hacking Professional II - Non Printed Edition.. (These are sick..very mobile as well, my keyboard when i travel with a labtop and i need to do heavy typing, also good to amaze friends/coworkers with your leet typing skills as its not printed :P)

Anyone know where to get semi-clear (translucent) keycaps?   I can find factory keyboards with them but I need the numpad which for whatever reason doesn't exist on alot of mx keyboards. 

 

Would be perfect if it had a numpad
