[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Guide - Page 948

post #9471 of 14566
So I recently picked up a Cherry G80 (thanks losttsol) to try out MX Blacks, and I gotta say not too shabby.

Not the greatest for typing I know, but I still manage pretty well (I tend to bottom out anyway, so it's not that big of deal at all for me).
Haven't gamed much on it save for an hour or so of Fallout, but I'll load up BFBC2 tomorrow and put it through the paces.

Not used to having the raised/offset numpad at all either, but the built-in touch pad is pretty cool actually (albiet useless for me) lol.
Was just going to pick this up to test out the switch type and resell but I may very well keep this thing regardless cause it's pretty darn cool

Manyak - Thanks for the detailed and informative guide!

I have a Unicomp 104 keyboard and love it. I just want one that also is led backlit & has a USB hub on it. Maybe Razor's new BlackWidow will do it. Having the port for headphones/mic would be a bonus as well.

Anyone know how the blue cherry switches compare to the buckling spring ones?

They are noticeably lighter. And give less of a tactile feedback. But still very nice switches to type on.

I would actually like to see them be light personally. But that's just me.

So is Blue Cherries versus Buckling Springs the topic of this thread?

I would like to point out that the following keyboards in the OP are obsolete:

- Das Model S (or at least the picture of the Multimedia version)
- ABS M1
- Realforce 87U (except in Korea)
- The MiniGuru
- At least half of those ergo boards
- Just about every foam switch keyboard you find on Ebay has foam that is the consistency of cottage cheese.
- And there are LOTS and LOTS of new keyboards that have started shipping

Oh, the Steelseries 7G is technically not obsolete but they are getting harder to find. The OP link leads to a "deactivated" notice. No more at Best Buy, Amazon, and a bunch of other places. Not sure why but the 6GV2 is a much better value anyway.

its a shame about the miniguru, that was a brilliant concept what with the plethora of customization options including the tough to find cherry reds

Does anyone know where I could either:
a) a set of key caps for MX Cherry Blues for the Dvorak layout where the "u" and the "f" keys have nibs and "f" and "j" do not.
b) a blank set of keycaps for MX Cherry blues

My keyboard is a Rosewill RK-9000 standard 108 key layout if that makes any difference. Both options a and be are appealing to me, the decision will largely be made on price. Thank you for any input and suggestions for places to find good keycaps.

Also, Does anyone have any suggestions on how to remove the rosewill logo from my keyboard without jacking up the look of the area where the logo is?
