post #13061 of 14551
just got to type the first couple words on my tt meka g1. the switches seem little hard to push down with the mx blacks but they also have like a cushion feel on every keystroke. defiantly am loving this keyboard alot more than my lycosa.

When do you guys think OCN's next generation of mechanical keyboards will come out? (For those that don't know...)

Hey!

After so many annyoing problem with my Razer Lycosa, ive desided to go try out mechanical keyboards!
I have to say, the ideal keyboard for me would be one with flat keys, like on lapstops. But I asume that would be hard to find!
Which keyboards would you guys recommend me?
Its goin 2 be used for hardcore gaming! Mostly FPS

Thank you

Most of the talk about mechanicals here is with the Cherry MX switches. Due to the physical size of the switches, low profile keys like the lycosa has wouldn't be possible. I am not aware of any model that has flat profile key caps, as opposed to the more sculpted traditional keys, but don't see why that wouldn't be possible...

Given that you like the flat profile keys and will be doing FPS gaming, I would recommend staying away from keyboards containing the Cherry MX Blue switch. Unfortunately a lot of the popular options contain this switch!

Personally I would recommend trying the Leopold Linear touch: http://elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=leopold,fullsize&pid=fc500rrab

or Force: http://elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=leopold,fullsize&pid=fc500rlab

(Depends on how much resistance you would like from the key, the force having a harder press, and the touch having a lighter press)

They are not low profile in any way however.

One of cherry's recent prototype keyboards looked like it had some short keycaps which might give it a similar feel. You might want to look around for it, but I don't think they will actually be sold, or at least I have not heard of any real information on them besides pictures.

The key caps are flat overall, but individually they aren't. If you look at a laptop keyboard, the tops of each cap are flat. I think that gives it at least some of the feel.
