If you like the blues, get it. Many people think they are better (for typing anyway). I can't stand the blues, the clicky-ness is annoying to me. That's why I'm going with browns. I think that's one of the main reasons many people buy mx browns TBH.

Indeed. There are people who prefer the Browns over Blues, but in many cases this is because they have specific issues with the Blues. If you really like the Blues, the next things to try are probably Buckling Springs or clicky Alps. That said, I much prefer Topres over Blue Cherry switches because I find Blue switches toylike.

Can you Dye keycaps? I read a guide a while back involving some food colouring (I think) and a frying pan, but is there any other way? I should think food colouring wouldn't be too bright.

You need some rit dye. You can find guides on Geekhack.

Or you could just use the OCN one. http://www.overclock.net/computer-peripherals/551389-keyboard-dye-customization-guide.html

Man, I haven't visited this thread in soooo long. Weren't the Leopolds supposed to arrive at EK by the end of January?

I enjoy the noise the blues make. I don't know if I would label them as "toylike", but, I suppose silence speaks for professionalism in some ways.

Leopolds have been delayed twice already from that date; current target is mid to late this month; pre-orders seem to all be filled on the tenkeyless.

PVC is also a common keycap material. Not quite as common on mechanical keyboards, but I've seen it on dozens of rubber dome keyboards. It's also commonly used in the case.

I'm looking to add both a section on PVC & POM.

As for the cleaning, I'll be updating that as well.

"But" at the start of a sentence?

I'll get that fixed in a second.

DAS PRO S

Ducky > TT Meka G1 > Das Model S Pro > Black Widow

Though if that's the OCN Ducky, it's out of stock right now (restocking underway) so you might as well move onto the Thermaltake Meka G1 or Das Model S Professional.

How are you going to use the keyboard?

Das is MX-Blues or MX-Browns, Thermaltake is Blacks. It's a big difference between the two.

Compared to the Topre or a solid buckling spring, I can see what he means.

It's the nature of the sound it makes, and how plasticky it feels.

My favorite switch, the capacitive buckling spring, is the loudest, and most satisfying, of them all. See the Model F clip near the bottom.

doh.gif. Did you guys even READ my post? That's the problem with forums like this, people reply before reading the OP, people skim something before they reply. Seriously guys, take the 15 seconds it takes to read the whole post.

CLEARLY he's an important ancient roman governor who made the roman laws I was talking about.

They added them for pre-order on the 7th I believe. So they did actually have them on the site by march tongue.gif.

Yea, I do have to agree that the buckling spring has a rather robust feel. The noise is just too loud for my environment, however. I wish I had the chance to test out a Model F for myself.
