Still, the clicky sound of the blues is awesome.
That's what happened to me. Since browns was my first one I was more used to it. Now that I have these blues there is definite increase in force required which I'm not accustomed to.

Am I the only one that finds it ironic that Ducky has an ad for Das Keyboards on their site?

And here.

What fonts does everyone want to see on their keyboard lettering?

I saw a Helvetica lettered keyboard in the favorite kb thread and it looked pretty nice. I like whatever Filco uses on theirs, looks really sweet. But doesn't it make sense to use a mono-spaced font for each key, seeing how each key is the same size?

Not many really nice looking monospace fonts though.

Looking at this site of monospaced fonts, http://www.codeproject.com/KB/work/FontSurvey.aspx

Dina is my favorite for a keyboard font right now





Osaka Unicode looks pretty funky too, could be cool





This Dolly font is very pretty, but not monospace. Warning, pdf link with some nsfw language, http://www.underware.nl/download/dolly/pdf/Dolly.pdf


Newwww favorite! The Mix Mono by Consolas creator Lucas de Groot, http://www.lucasfonts.com/fonts/them...mono/overview/ <--- link only, pic on there is really large to put inline

This is why we love mechanical keyboards.

If it's bad, you have 30 days to return it, no questions asked, and you can get a brown instead (Model S Silent).

You could also get the Deck Legend, which has clears, which feel like stiffer browns. Apparently it's one of the current best made keyboards, and it's backlit. Not sure why this one isn't recommended as much for gaming+typing though.
Actually, the Deck Legend is available with both the Cherry MX Blacks and Clears. They go by "Linear" and "Tactile" respectively.

Yes I know but he's not looking for linear keyboards.

edit: oh, yeah I should have said that it comes in 2 flavors and which one was which.

Blacks are linear, Clears are not.

Given what you said, it wasn't clear if you understood that. Glad to hear you do, but the mere context of your post might confuse someone new to the thread into thinking that both blacks and clears are linear switches.

Combined with the fact that I wasn't sure if you knew, I made my reply
