post #1801 of 1809

I been hearing great things about Gateron switches... They are supposedly better quality than the equivalent Cherry since in more recent years, the quality of Cherry switches has dropped a little. Like I hear stories of Cherry Black switches being scratchy, etc 

 

Anyone here have experience with Gaterons??

Switched to a Filco Majestouch Convertible 2 with brown switches and never look back. Less cable clutter while using the keyboard with it's Bluetooth function.

 

 

 

 

Love the white \ blue colour, looks great.

Are those keycaps PBT or ABS? Double shot or single top labeled?

what are your guys thoughts on the corsair K70 RGB LUX? is that worth the retail price or should i be considering less mainstream options in that price range?

Thats a nice keyboard. The higher price is because of the aluminum and their using actual cherry mx switches. IMO totally worth it, you won't be disappointed.

 

Just a heads up on backbit keyboards, In my experience they tend to draw more power and work best when connected to a powered usb hub. (Keep that in mind if your computer doesn't detect the keyboard after waking from sleep)

means, when their made, the mold is "shot" with two colors rather than one. If the key is not a double shot key than the marking on it must be a label or laser engraved...etc
