Trust me, they barely wobble. I can only get my Filco keys to wobble by grabbing them and moving them back and forth. When typing it doesn't even come close to wobbling like the M1.

Glad to hear. I will make sure to give a higher quality board a try when I can.

I don't know the names or where they order them from but you cannot buy them in a store. you can read about them here.

the wobble on the Adesso MKB-135B is pretty bad it's easy to make the Keycaps crooked so I wouldn't complain.

I'm getting ready to dye my g84, and I'm wondering what's the best way to remove cherry ML keycaps without the impending feeling of breaking something.

Suggestions for the actual dying are welcome too, but I was experimenting earlier and think I have an idea of what to do. I already looked at this guide.

i hate to be a bother but is there somewhere that i can look at all these mechanical keyboards with pics and maybe like a rating? Just something to give me an idea of what to look for and maybe find some deals.
I know someone has linked ebay a few times and that key board is nice but its rather large and has a card reader. really just looking for basic with good feel and key thats will last.

Das Keyboard and Elite Keyboards for some pictures

Geekhack forums for some reviews, comments, etc. (and it's also where they call OCN members a bunch of idiots lol).

you have to start somewhere. you will get over the card reader, track pads and track balls. Manyak has a small listing on Page 1 of the Mechanical Keyboard Guide but I would start here.

even a helpful video with sound to hear the clicking. I was wondering how severe the click was. I had figured it would be that loud tit tat from the old type writers. its close but surely not as loud. Thanks Imnop

oh so close, the I-Rock was in the price range but that key layout would drive me nutts. Been using the same keyboard 24/7 for 8+ years now and its the typical US layout.
