[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Guide - Page 1314

post #13131 of 14551
I'm not a fan of Das. They are big ugly boards imo. Also they both have a gloss finish so they will be finger print magnets. The black widow seems to be hit and miss on quality. Some users love their's plenty others hate them. I would say there is a reason they are so cheap.

As far as rosewill not sure what you heard but they are great boards. I'm not sure where you read about people returning them but any product will have a few. Even the almighty Filco.

Oh didn't know that.

Were you talking about this keyboard
http://elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=leopold,fullsize&pid=fc500rcab
when you mentioned Filco? Also why are the keyboards that dont have visual letters on them the same price as the ones that do. Wouldn't it be cheaper to not have to use the laser or etching? And yes I know why they leave the keys blank

Thats a leopold. Filco is a different brand and generally thought of as one of the best boards that uses Cherry switches.

This is a Filco.

Pretty pricey.

I work in manufacturing, and it's not always easy to remove something from a step of production. You're actually lucky it doesn't cost a lot more, given how many less boards they probably sell blank.

After referencing this awesome guide for months, i've finally purchased and received my mechanical keyboard.

I got a WASD Keyboards Semi Custom

All black keys
Laser etched
Cherry MX Black switches


Feels great man!

Reason i went with WASD Keyboards was because i got frustrated with the match up between what was available to me and what i wanted out of the keyboard. Even though it came out to be around $178 CAD, and i think that was expensive, i love the keyboard thus far!

Recommending mechanical keyboards to all ppl that i think could benefit from it.

lol its nice typing on this thing!!! Thanks again

Hi
I am looking for a silent mechanical keyboard,
I have a filco brown switch keyboard that I like but it still noisy and my coworker
send me message through my boss that they can't work when i use this keyboard
so I had to take the keyboard home frown.gif and get the office cheap HP standard keyboard.
it's noiseless but I feel like type on gelly, can't get the feeling that I correctly hit the keyboad so
my speed is very slow frown.gif

I am looking for a mechanical keyboard that will give me the feeling in the finger but is
noiseless.
I was looking at the das silent keyboard, but still find it pretty noisy.
how about the filco torpe keyboard (sorry don't have the correct name).

Else I will look at keyboard like my apple keyboard, pretty slim but still some feedback in the finger.
last time I check logitech had some nice one like my apple keyboard.

I code and do sysadmin stuff all day, the keyboard is my main tools.

Thanks

Brown switches are not loud, I think the noise you are experiencing is from bottoming out. You could try adding o-rings or landing pads to quiet it down. I've never used Topre, so I can't comment on their noise level.

You are right, It's the bottoming out sound, I am kind a heavy eater on the keyboard.
I will look at the oring stuff, seems pretty cheap.

Got a question about my ducky shine. Already asked in the tankguys post sales support but they havent answered my previous question yet so I figured I'd try here. I am using a 15ft powered usb extension to play from my couch. When I plug the extension into the ps2 adapter that came with my keyboard it won't light up. When I plug the extension straight into usb it does light up. Is normal? Would using a male/female ps2 extension work instead?
