Good value mechanical keyboard - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Well I got offered a decent price for a CM Storm Trigger with Cherry Browns, and I decided to pulled the trigger. This will be my first mechanical keyboard and I'm excited, but I still find it hard to swallow spending ~$100 just for a keyboard, even though I just did tongue.gif. I'll be eagerly awaiting for it to arrive.

It won't be hard to swallow once you get it. The keyboard and mouse are what physically connect you to your computer, why cheap out? It would be like putting wal-mart tires on a Ferrari. Besides, $100 is NOTHING for a keyboard. Your still in the low end of the keyboard realm. biggrin.gif

Well, tbh even though I've used dome membrane keyboards all my life, I always find myself on the lookout for different keyboards. Whenever I go to the computers section of a store, I can't help but type on all the different keyboards that are on display. To me, every membrane keyboard feels a little different from one another. So basically, I've always been searching for my ideal actuation force on a membrane keyboard. So hopefully by finally making the switch to a mechanical keyboard, I can stop "searching."

Speaking of this, do all the different Cherry MX switches feel the same? For example, do Black cherry switches from x brand feel identical to the black cherry switches from y brand?

The Tg3 just looks way too compact for me. I'd love to give it a try first, but I can't see myself spending money on something so... different... than what I'm used to without trying it first.

The switches themselves, so long as you don't get into special vintage switches, will be the same, but the feel can be affected by factors outside the switch, such as the mounting type (PCB or plate), the solidity of the mounting factor (for a plate-mounted keyboard, the material and thickness of the plate; for a PCB-mounted keyboard, the solidity of the keyboard case and how well the PCB is braced against the case), and keycap thickness and material.

They may feel different depending on the time they've been out and how many people have used them. The rubber membrain gets stiffer as it gets older. They are all pretty much the same.

As for the cherry mx feel, everything Foxwolf1 says makes a pretty big difference, especially to people that are sensitive to stuff like that.
