[MaximumPC] Coolermaster unveils Novatouch keyboard

post #1 of 105
Thread Starter 

Quote:
The silicon-based injection helps absorb the friction and shock when two mechanical pieces are rubbing against each other. Sound is kept to a minimum as well when a user is typing. As for the feel of the switch it is similar to, according to the rep, the Cherry MX Brown key switches.

Finally, a cheap(hopefully) topre-based kb that'll be widely available! biggrin.gif Been itching to try a topre-based switch for a while now.

Topres are nothing like Brows. Comparing Topre to Cherry MX, Browns might be the closest but it's like comparing cats to dogs just because both have four legs and are used as pets.

I like it, simple design, no branding everywhere (hopefully in the final product too), the case seems to be matte black which is nice, no gaming crap all over it.
I might buy this one.

This. The smoother-than-blacks/reds travel is great but that slightly mushy feeling because of the rubber dome kills it for me.

If they make a version with Topre's short throw scissor switch equivalent then I'd be down for one.

mechanical keyboards=epic gimmick imo

Absolutely not worth the prices. The one keyboard I got to use made a lot of noise when pressing keys.
