Search side printed cherry keycap on ebay.


Example

Thanks for that, although that one is kind of expensive. Or are they all that expensive like this?

sounds like my Zowei Mx brown,

 

it does have a nice feel to it! I think I tried Mx Blue once.. of maybe I was dreaming <.<... OH YES YES I DID TRY MX BLUE! I tried a Razor Naga with Mx Blues! they where ok... I like my browns though <3 It's smooth like running your hand dwn a pretty womens thigh! *Smmmmmmmmmmmmooth*

After trying out Cherry MX Browns directly after buckling spring, I can say with certainty that I prefer the Cherry switches.  I feel like the debouncing for the Unicomps isn't enough or something.  Anyway, I have a Das Keyboard Professional S (MX Blue) and a CM Storm QuickFire Rapid (MX Black) coming in for Christmas...  CAN'T WAIT...

Nope. Although I've seen some impressive WPM with it before though.

WPM e.e what you mean bro!

 

Oh words per Minuete... I suppose a better key board could let you type faster. I certianly type faster with ym cherry browns than I did with my old keyboard. Except that now I type to fast at school adn the key boards there don't get half of what I type <.<. Still I MIGHT be 75 words per minuete... where as I used to be like 50 xD. Not that worlds faster typer

Yeah, I do. Took me quite a while to get used to though. Have been using it for a little more than a year by now I think. While it's an improvement for typing it has quite a few drawbacks as well. Certain hotkeys don't work any more, in games you have to rebind pretty much every key before you can play them and it's not supported natively by windows. (although I'm not sure about that in windows 8 right now) Seeing as a do most of my typing at my own computer, it's been worth it for me. Not so much for improvement in speed, but much more so an improvement in how much less problems with RSI I've got compared to when I used qwerty. Still I think that if you plan on switching to another keyboard layout you shouldn't do so lightly. It takes quite a while before you can type a reasonable 50 wpm again which may be a problem if you're using a computer for work. You might also run into the problem of not being able to type as quickly as you're used to when using other computers than your own.

I read somewhere that Qwerty isn't too efficient with using the letters most commonly used in English, and I've done a online typing test thing where it suggest which other keyboard layout that's more appropriate for me. In hindsight, I should've bookmarked it so that I can share the link.
I also just received my WASDKeyboard keycap o-rings. Kind of weird in that the depth to bottoming out is a bit shallow now, but then I do have slight problems to bottoming out when I am in a good pace typing. The only noise now is just the click of my Blue cherry now, and kind of great for me and my sleeping roommates LOL
