@Phaedrus2129 Sorry man, the Cherry G80-8200LPDUS looks a tad bulky for my taste.


So, basically what I've compiled are these keyboards:

Leopold Tenkeyless Tactile Touch "Otaku" Keyboard Brown

Majestouch 2 Tenkeyless N-Key rollover Brown - Where do I buy this?

The Ducky 1087 looks good, although again, I don't know where to buy them. Anyone know?

Also, anyone ever paint a keyboard? I'm still in love with grey and I was wondering if there was a safe way to paint them in a way that would last a very, very long time.
you can find the filco in the ninja version from amazon, similar to the one you linked except for the keycaps are the ninja style where the lettering is in the front of the keys.


I also heard that amazon might be getting more of the regular keycaps keyboards possible later this month from keyboardco who is the actually seller.

the ducky 1087 can be ordered through pchome which is a TW online store. There is a thread on geehack on how to order from the site even though it is not in english.

Also alternatively there was a ducky 1087 on sale in the classified thread.

It's sold and I'm shipping it out tomorrow. OP, there are many group buys over at Geekhack if you're interested in 1087.

My RF uses Topre capacitive switches which is basically a hybrid between a rubber dome and a mechanical keyboard. Topre switches have their own unique feel and I would not say that they could be compared to any of the cherry switches. It is my favorite switch so far and is an absolute pleasure to type on. Many people consider Topre as the "cream of the crop" of keyboards.
If you want to learn more about them you can read this guide thoughtfully provided by Ripster.

I'm selling my RF because it is a variable weighted keyboard. The weight required to activate the keys throughout the keyboard are designed to accommodate the strength of each of your fingers to reduce fatigue from typing. Unforunately, the keys for the pinkies are TOO light (being weighted at 30g's) so I have a problem of accidentally actuating 'A' and ';' from just resting my fingers on the homerow. It still does feel very nice to type on and it would be perfect for me if it weren't for the variable weighted keys, so the reason why I'm selling this Realforce is to get a uniformly-weighted board.

If you want that Filco you can try checking Amazon. IIRC they don't have that model in stock so if you want that you're going to have to order overseas and pay expensive shipping charges.
