The ping issues seem more rare on Tenkeyless boards, probably due to the smaller plate size makes it easier to keep dampened. Just buy from a reputable seller on the off chance you get a bad one you can always return it. If you get a "ringer" you'll know it.

Ongoing poll on GH: http://geekhack.org/showthread.php?19743

Most of the ringing boards are MX Browns IIRC. I owned a Das and currently a Filco Ninja and they both have a couple keys pinging, but it's BARELY noticeable unless you're looking for the sound.

Congrats. Can't go wrong with Filco Ninjas.

Because they Ninja.

There is a poll here. Looks like a minor issue. At least to 87% of the respondents.

It's not a minor issue if you get unlucky and receive a bad board.

This poor guy got two bad Ninjas ones at once, probably part of the same defective batch:

I don't think I have to point out the sad irony of a keyboard called "Ninja" that rings loudly. This is why it's always a good idea to buy from a reputable seller and not just trust the endorsements of various fanboys/shills.

He was rather sensitive to noise.

Anyway, maybe I just got two lemons, by coincidence. But I don't think so. I'll bet they're all like this, at least the browns. Actually it's not that loud, just mostly annoying. I once had a 1st-generation Matias Tactile Pro (sold) that was like a miniature percussion band: clicking, clacking, pinging and squeaking - what a racket!
And clearly was proven wrong about the "bet they're all like this" part.

That poll had 30 days of data and a sample size over 100.

Statistics don't lie.

Aren't they worse than lies judging by that old saying? Regardless, it was not a matter of noise sensitivity, and I don't fault him for thinking at the time that they must all be that way after receiving two ringing examples. Maybe you should look at it from his point of view instead of trying to discredit him because you didn't like what he had to say.

Speaking of statistics, while it's still early in the polling, the vast majority of people in this ongoing poll (which amazingly you haven't managed to get locked yet with spam and trolling) don't hear anything but clicks from their plate-mounted Cherry switch boards. So obviously loudly pinging/ringing boards not normal, and the unfortunate guy who got two ringing Filcos was the recipient of defective merchandise.

Cool! I hope you enjoy your Glucose. I'm looking at the Tenkeyless and the Deck 82 myself.
