You bring your board, I'll bring a typewriter, we can see who wins.

The filco vortex cases are still $150, thats a big jump ( and then I would want one for my other 2 boards as well )

Nice reaforce.

Question: is it easy or suitable for normal users to change switches? I'd like to change my mx blacks keyboard to mx brown or blue. It's a tt esports gunit keyboard and only black and reds are avail and I dont wanna buy another k95 or gunit. Would it be possible as a dyi project and where would I find the switches (and keycaps that are not so smooth on top (and feel cheap), the ones that came with the original)? I think they're call pte or something key caps?

thanks for all suggestions

You can't have mine but they're still in stock at elitekeyboards so I would go pick one up now. For the price, it's a steal of a board. My first Topre, love it, and I wouldn't trade it for anything biggrin.gif

I wouldn't say it's supposed to be like that but my thumb hits it at a more natural angle when placed like that. It might have to do with the fact that my hands are small and my shorter thumb land at a weird angle.

Here's a video of me typing on it:


This video has a more accurate recording of what it actually sounds like:

Most keyboards have plate-mounted switches, which require soldering each switch. It's not really "hard" as far as soldering stuff goes I guess, but I wouldn't call it easy overall; it's a lot of work.

Not to mention, unless you have a donor board, it will more than likely be cheaper over all to just buy a new board. Most online dealers sell switches from $1-$2 a pop, and if you can find a private seller, they will go fora bout $.50 a switch.

Not to mention a good set of keycaps will be hard to find and probably around $80+ ( cheap sets can be had for as little as $20 )

just a backlit WASD V2, what do you need to know?

$150... not a bad price for what it is, personally not my cup of tea, but thats just me.
( dont care for backlighting )

I'd rather have a V2 with customized keycaps for the same price ( with all the switch options as well )
( or wait for the rumored qf XTS )

No good for Paradigm, it specifically says not to use the keyboard as a weapon.
