I've tried those cheapo Razer switches.

And I've tried out all of the common switches at the store.

And yet, nothing beats the nonsensical "bumping" mechanism of a rubber dome keyboard. I just don't get the same feeling with a mechanical keyboard-- because it's LITERALLY typing on a bed of springs

I find rubber dome keyboards more comfortable. I type 130+ WPM on Typeracer, even peaking at 150+ sometimes. At my typing level it's not really about how good your keyboard is, it's about how fast you can physically mash the keys. It's actually way easier on a rubber dome since the force curve is more exponential than linear.

Just gotta rant a little. I really hate keyboard shilling.

Maybe you can try the Topre? Some say the they felt close to domes.
I have not tried myself but many ppl swear by it.

It's a shame Topre are so expensive, it makes it hard for people to take a chance on them. CoolerMaster makes the most affordable option, the Novatouch.

I saw the recommendations in the OP but if there were any other suggestions for Cherry MX Greens/Blues that'd be awesome
Only requirement really is standard ANSI keyboard layout and obviously the green/blue switches.

also is there a general consensus or perhaps someone with personal experience with WASDKeyboards that can tell me about their build quality/if they're worth the price/etc?

thanks

I own a WASD Code V2 Keyboard 87key with MX Brown, I love the keyboard. It is build like a tank with a white metal back plate which works great with the LED lighting. I game lots at night so LED lighting was a must, I didn't want the silly RGB lighting pretty useless other than at a lan party IMO. The cord is replaceable which I like because it allowed me to get a longer cord without an extension having to be used.

I thought these keys were supposed to be quite loud? I just got MX Browns as everyone said blues were really loud and browns were still quite loud but not as bad, I really don't find these loud at all, maybe I should have gone blues redface.gif

Ah well I can always buy a blue at a later date if I get some extra cash smile.gif, I really like the feel of this Filco keyboard so I am definitely going to keep it!

I don't mind the sound blues make but, they're definitely pretty noisy.

IMO, Browns are the quiestest of all mainstream switches (Red, Blue, Black etc.) out there.

Anyway, I wonder how much Filco usually cost in the UK? Some said they're overpriced (without any extra features, keys) but it's actually quite affordable (for a mechanical keyboard) here in my country.

I have a full size MJ2 ninja myself and I love it. Besides, Filco is the only branding I would want on my keyboard.

Just read about a topre clone, the Royal Kludge, reviews claim that the typing feels 75% close to an authentic Topre?

Yeah I got it for £114 which is 658.211 MYR. I don't know what price you would get it for out there though, but to me it was worth it as it just feels so nice and has a great build quality that feels like it will last me many years to come smile.gif. I spend a lot of time typing so why not get something of good quality that feels nice.

Couldn't agree more man. A good keyboard will completely change my everyday working day. But I gotta say their keycaps are bull**** man.

Btw, I bought mine around MYR 440 ~ £76.39. That's a huge difference!
