Question to mechanical keyboard owners

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I ordered my 6Gv2 a couple days ago and it should arrive this week. I can't wait to get it.

Anyway, I wanted to know, when you go to a friends house or something and they have a regular rubber dome keyboard, how does it feel to use that? Does it take time to adjust? The reason I am asking is because I will be spending a lot of time at school using their 10 year old gum filled rubber dome keyboards which barely work, so I wanted to know if it will take time to adjust.

It is fine to type on but it feels bad. I type on the dell keyboards at ASU every day going from a Noppoo with MX Black and its fine, just feels awkward. Its even harder coming from something like clicky ALPS though.
The blacks are smooth and seem to have an endless travel even though they are the same as blues and browns. Then you are going to something squishy and tactile in a rubbery way.

Ya I can't handle regular keyboards anymore. Although my laptops scissor keyboard (m11x) has a really nice feel to it, I dont mind it. When did you order yours? I remember seeing your oother post asking about it because it went on sale, I ordered mine that day aand it still ssays waiting for tracking.

i dont mind going back too bad as long as it's not for a long period of time, but most of the time i just take a mechanical keyboard with me cuz i have a few. let me know how the mx blacks are when you get it, i really want to try them. at school i get a little annoyed, but it's not nearly as bad as it could be. i can easily adapt to rubber domes, just end up making a lot more mistakes, as i am right now because i dont have a mechanical with me lol

It's not too bad. I can still type on rubber dome keyboards fine. Things that require precise timings (like rocket jumping in TF2) will be a lot harder on a rubber dome board.
