[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Guide - Page 5

post #41 of 14423
I just got my Scorpious M10.
It does have great feedback, although its a lot lighter keystroke than on the Model M. Its just about as noisy, just doesn't have the metalic ring that the M does. I just hope I don't bother the other person in my office at work...

I actually do like the lighter keystroke than the Model M, so I think this is also a great mechanical switch keyboard.

I have one of these laying around, and half the board died on me one day so I got pissed and bought a DeCK.

It's funny whenever I tell someone how much I spent on my keyboard....they look at me like I'm stupid.

Seems like a lot of mechanical keyboard fans have came out of the woodwork lately it's good seeing people invest in proper keyboards.

Yes it is

It's also good to see some bigger companies use mechanical switches in 'gaming' keyboards like Steelseries and ABS, because more and more people are being introduced to them.

What switches do these Decks use? I know they're Cherry switches, but I don't know which ones...they don't have the 'pop' that a typical keyboard like my Scorpius had.

It really depends. Do you type real softly or pound the keys?

If you like to use a lot of force when typing then I'd say go with Buckling Springs (IBM Model M) or Black Alps (ABS M1). Otherwise get Topre Capacitive (Realforce or HHKB Pro 2) or Cherry Browns (Filco Majestouch). Or if you aren't sure, get Cherry Blues (Scorpius M10) - their resistance is somewhere in the middle of the pack, and are a lot of people's favorite anyway.

I type rather hard because of my speed actually, and the fact I only use three fingers per hand when I type means my fingers are prolly hitting the keys at a higher velocity then most. Also, I rather like the ABS M1 as well, thanks for the suggestion.
