If You Like Logitechs Don't Post At Geekhack - Page 3

post #21 of 41
I wonder how long it will take Ripster to get banned here once they kick him out of Geekhack. He'll have no other keyboard forums to go to.

I respect ya' Rip, but you are a pain in the butt sometimes.

To each their own, as they say. GH community is a bit more extreme than OCN's tho, that's why i lurk here more for mechanics (no offense tho, they're geniuses for keyboards and i've learnt a lot from them).

Personally, coming from rubbers myself, my mechanic has been a godsend, but as all things with life, took a bit of getting used to, especially the click of the switches (i loved them from the get go tho). Even with a prototype board which is not as sturdily built as a production unit, i have no complaints about the quality of it (only the keys that are a bit unaligned, but hey, it is still a prototype)

Some rubber boards do tend to be pretty nicely built (like a laptop's scissor switches), but, unless i'm forced to, like at work, i'll never use a rubber dome board again. My mechanical has reduced strain on my fingers by not having to press all the way to the bottom, or if i do, it has to be with less strenght. My typing has become more precise and crisp, and even my WPM has increased. Gaming has become softer, and even more with RPG's and MMO's, as the keys activate in mid-press, my reflexes have improved tenfold, and i can play FPS's for way more time due to the less force applied to the keys.

Rubbers do have one advantage: price. But still, quality is worth paying for. Maybe your ideal mechanical switches are topres? They're like a hybrid between rubbers and mechanicals.

No one has been too harsh with him and if his whole story is true than it's a shame I'm not his friend, the search for my first mechanical keyboard would have been over and for a super discount price too
I know, right? I want to recommend all of the keyboards I want to buy. Then when he finds out he doesn't like them. I could buy them from him for near nothing prices haha

I think the whole, 2 faulty filco section, made people not believe the story. It seems unlikely.

OP, no offense, but you had it coming. That crowd in general supports mech keyboards. You didn't ask for help, or if this is how it's supposed to be, or if anyone there had a separate experience. You came on their forums and basically said their products suck.

That's like going to a Mercedes store and saying "yeah I test drove 2 of these they felt terrible. I went back to BMW and it's perfect".

Honestly, what kind of response did you expect? You don't go into someone else's house just to crap on their floor.

Arguing forcefully is frowned upon by today's T-Ball Participation Award Generation. And OCN has officially approve using Nickels to see how stiff your keyboard is.

65g I think is Logitech's design goal for most of their rubber domes.

The "shaky" Filco thing might be the higher height of the Filco/Rosewill/WASD keys. They do take some time for some people to adjust to.

These are WASD, same as Filcos but laser engraved.
