Does anyone know how much a black on orange tkl double shot keycap set would go for?

Oh, and I was scared of the Mechanical Keyboard being to loud, but it really isn't unless you bottom out the keys real hard, just for anyone wondering.

Depends on the key. Blue switches have a 'click' sound.

Yeah, I have blues, and they're supposed to be really loud, but it's really exaggerated online.

Same here.

Compared to the browns, or the usual keyboards, its pretty loud. With the usual (non mechanical) keyboards, its possible to be near silent if you can touch type.

 

In my experience, good keyboards always tend to have a certain amount of sound, because of the key travel and feedback. The best example of a good non-mechanical keyboard I can find is the older thinkpad keyboards.

 

But the 'click' sound of the blue switch is still louder compared to anything. And if you bottom out the keys, it sounds almost like a typewriter.

Don't delude yourself :P  The browns are reasonably loud even when you do not bottom out, and the blues are equally loud, plus the added clicking mechanism on the side of the switch - and it's not even a good sounding noise, it's clacky and higher-pitched than i'd like.  To be blunt, the blues sound like garbage.  :D

I agree. I bought a brown and it was definitely a loud purchase. Now, I don't care about the extra noise and I am given to understand that the blues are louder still, but even at "quieter", the browns aren't "quiet". It's the difference between a large pistol and a small pistol versus a BB gun.

The clicky noise and the clicky feedback...pretty nice for typing.

Exactly, even when gaming, the different actuation points help me keep the "w" key down when driving smily_headphones1.gif

Now I'm looking for a good wrist pad. Has anyone used the 3M gel based pad? I'm thinking of ordering one on amazon.

I messed with one at Staples one, couldn't stop poking it xD, but it looked like it would be a great wrist pad, I also thought about buying 1 and cutting it to size smily_headphones1.gif
