The cherry stabilizers are just fine. Some folks may complain about them &/or not like them as much as costar stabilizers but when you're new to mechanicals, they will still feel superior to non-mechanical keyboards.

The DK90** products are higher quality then the DK10** products, but both lines are still good since the DK10** was revamped almost 2 years ago.

I keep on hearing things about the cherry stabilizers feeling "mushy".

IIRC a few people have said that they're superior compared to the Costar stabilizers on Geekhack.

Don't listen to Geekhack dude. Bunch of noobs.



The differences are there but overblown. I call this McRip effect.

So you think it would be perfectly fine if I went with a CM Storm Trigger at $90?

I tried the trigger and I didn't like it. I thought it had too much case flex and I didn't like the way the keycaps made the switches feel. It was on sale at frys electronics for $90 at that time but I still don't think that it is worth it.

I know the new Quickfire TK has a steel backplate in it, but I'm still iffy on that kind of design. I mean, I'm happy it's not tenkeyless, but the combo of the keypad and arrow keys is weird...

This may sound really stupid, but I'm really happy the Ducky Shine's (and Shine II's) have a dedicated calculator button lol.

People who find a huge difference between Costar & Cherry stabilizers are the ones who need to have something to complain about.

Hello key bashers tongue.gif

 

I'm stretching out of my usual "hangout" threads~

If all goes well I will be getting a WASD custom keyboard in a few months (because they're pricy, but I have a reason to go  custom; uncommon keymap):

Keyboard layout WIP (Click to show)

1140289

Bépo layout map (Click to show)

 

I'm a first-time mechanical keyboard buyer, and I'm unsure about the cherry keys I want. I hesitate between Cherry Blue and Brown.

I currently own a Logitech Wave keyboard, and this thing needs a hammer to type... So as long as I can type without too much effort, I'm fine.I do game from time to time, but I don't play games that needs extensive use of double-tap. I also want a relatively quiet keyboard

 

I am adding o-rings to the lot; anyone got suggestions/comments about the size of them (50A 0.4mm, 40A 0.4mm and 40A 0.2mm)?

I'm using a Maxkeyboard with Brown cherry's and Black O rings (0.4mm, hard ones WASD) and loving them, I would however strongly recommend you get a wrist rest say a Filco or Ducky.... I personnel have the Large Flico wrist rest and its great but a tad price hard to justify spending 90AUD inc. shipping on a wrist rest regardless of how good it is ( it should be a lot cheaper elsewhere around the world)

Back to the question I guess it really imo comes down to whether you like noisy typing, the fact that you are getting O rings suggest to me that you would rather have a quite keyboard thus i would happy recommend brown cherry's for the obvious reason......... However regardless of what you get i'm sure you will enjoy the change!

No workie. Off limits even if you log in. I notice Model Fs I have ping. It's like worrying about the sound of ricochets while ignoring the sound of the gunfire.
