[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Guide - Page 399

post #3981 of 14566
Sorry if this has already been asked but I tried searching and couldn't find anything.

Are there any mechanical keyboards with low profile keys? I really prefer low profile keys for typing and gaming but can't seem to find one that I like the look of.

Cherry G84 boards have low-profile Cherry ML switches. They're decent.

It looks way cheaper than the 7G. The pictures don't help though.

Yeah, but unlike the 7g it has a standard enter and backslash key. So it fixes the one problem that brings the 7g down for most people.


But I hate Thermaltake, so...

Can you link my to the place where Unicomp sells the blank keys? I can't find it for the life of me.

There's no link. In the checkout comments just ask them to add a set of black blank keys for $20.

Or give them a call, they're pretty nice guys there

Filco 104 NKRO w/ Blues

And soon a deck legend too, most likely...but I'll be switching the springs of the Blacks out with Browns, to make them like Reds.

If you're wondering why two keyboards, look at my monitors.

That make sense lol. I've been using a g15 for the longest time. This new keyboard is like a breath of fresh air.

I'm relatively new to mechanical keyboards (as you can probably tell). Is it easy to replace the switches (or springs if I'm understanding this right). Is it likely that I will have to do that for maintenance or anything?
