I wish my boards were heavier, i'm testing ways to add some weight in them. Its a keyboard not a mouse, I don't want it sliding all over my desk.
I say hella and yall and many other words due to the places ive lived in my life time.

Boi I tell you what...preteen arms, yet I have no complaints about carrying around a full17inch laptop battlestation in my backpack. and yall have the nerve to call me weak...
well excuuuuse me for feeling a mechanical for the first time when im used to cheap plastic rubberdome keyboards that way only a few ounces. rolleyes.gif
dun mind me im just a lady with a vested interest in computers not like I can smack you or anything mad.gif


Say YOLO again I dare you.

it was more a joke about the dumb language of kids, but don't mind me, i'm just a grumpy old man.
( and I had an old toshiba gaming laptop back in the day, thing was not light at all )

In other news, parts are coming in a day earlier than I expected for my hybrid board thingy, so I got something to keep me busy this afternoon.

Hmm, I am potentially wondering about getting a tenkeyless board for general-purpose typing/coding. So. Blues vs. Greens vs. Clears for that purpose? This board would not be used for gaming, I already have a board with browns that I love for that purpose, but the typing experience just feels somewhat lacking.

Really I'm just looking for people's opinions on the different switch types so I can make a more informed decision.

( assuming you're looking for a keyboard to use at work )

if you work in a crowded office area, I would go with clears, but good luck finding them right now. ( blues are greens, same switch, different spring ) can be a bit loud. they are also stiffer than blues, and I think greens as well. Note, they are the same decible, but the greens/blues have an annoying high pitched click and thats what some people cant stand. Clears are basically a stiffer, more tactile brown.

if your office is more spaced out like mine, greens/blues would be fine. I would imagine that you would want a lighter switch ( blues ) for typing, I've not used a fully green board, but all three of those switch types would make a really good typing board.

comparing those switches to browns

browns: less tactile than blues/greens/clears and ligher
blues: same spring as browns, but more tactile and with the click
greens: heavier and more tactile (same as blues ) than browns and with a click
clears: haveier and more tactile than browns,greens,blues, without a click.

If you think a Model M is heavy, you need to try a Model F. They're a tank. Now if you have and love a Model M, stay away from a Model F since it will ruin your Model M for you.

I'm actually looking for a second keyboard to use in my dorm. I love my nighthawk X8 with browns, but they feel just a bit too mushy for typing, and I think I'd be happier with something with a bit more tactile feedback for that purpose.

The reason I'm looking for a TKL board is because desk space here is at a premium, and I don't really need the numpad for much of anything. I've considered the Quickfire TK as a middle ground, but I like being able to find the arrow keys by feel, and it would still be a little high for the price range I'd ideally be looking at. TKL boards also tend to be cheaper, so there's another plus for them.

E: Clears are like stiffer, clickier browns, right? That sounds like a good thing, although I don't know if I can get such a thing around here tongue.gif

When I was testing keyboards, I really liked blues, but I knew I wouldn't want them for gaming, so I went with browns. While I'm happy enough with this keyboard, a second board for when I need to sit down and type long sections of notes would be really nice.

Nope, it just puts the submissions in a spreadsheet, which then have to manually be put into the membership list.
