[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Guide - Page 1094

post #10931 of 14567
Anyways, I just picked up a Black Widow keyboard. I love it. Really easy to type on and much more accurate than my old logitech rubber dome. Still getting used to it for gaming. I should have gotten a mechanical years ago, what a difference!

Mechanical keyboards feel much better to type on. That mushy **** in the computer labs at school is hard to type on.

Random question... Does anyone know what the Deck Legend keys are made of? PBT, ABS, POM, other? Been trying to find out and surprisingly this is proving harder to find than I would have thought.

lmnop would know, but haven't seen her post in forever. Search her posts and Deck, and maybe it will come up.

I choose to believe they are made of Awesome, but that probably doesn't help you.

Information is not listed in the geekhack wiki either, although there are some really nice pictures.

so final answer. they are double-shot molded, made out of polyester which is a soft, high impact plastic and the printing is sublimated dye.

if it wasn't for the font these would probably be the best keycaps you can get.

2. Keycaps are made of Polyester (PBT) except the spacebar which is ABS.

Crazy you have a Deck and a Topre. I know from past posts you said that you enjoyed the Realforce to the point where you do not game on the Deck much anymore. Was it a linear or tactile Deck? I'm trying to figure out if the MX Clear is a close approximation to a Realforce 55g. I would guess MX Clear or MX Brown would be nearest.

Or am I entirely off.

The Deck I have is linear.

No cherry switch is a close approximation to the topre keys, they feel completely different.
