Cherry browns

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I finally got my first paycheck and I want to update my old Eclipse keyboard to a new mechanical one. The reason I'm leaning to browns is because I both type a lot (computer science major) and game a lot (mostly wow a few fps.)

I was looking at the Leopold one from elitekeyboards but I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks!

Elitekeyboards has more problems keeping things in stock than Arnold keeping his hands off the maids.

Sounds so good.
doesnt sound like that , close to actual. he bottoms out way too hard its more soft of click from bottoming out. just if you dont bottomg out you only hear the keycaps going back to normal position.
and that sounds like "dah".

it doesnt sound that crisp, it only sounds like that becuase of the space bar, i dont own it but, i have a ducky mx brown and yeah it doesnt sound that, but cuz he is bottoming out it gets that sound. my space goes "Crehhh" XD

GAWD that is a bad recording. I suspect cheap VCR mike and the wood keyboard tray doesn't help.

Try these soundsamples.

Sounds good to me too. Of course since they are my sound samples I'm a bit biased.

I should redo the Brown Cherry one. I'm really slamming those keys.

You're slamming most of them. Consistent I guess.
