[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 1517

post #15161 of 36815
Alright, Got my custom hybrid board going, its a bit weird typing on blues again since i'm so used to reds, the clicks of the blues feel lighter than the reds, and I also swapped out my Esc and Spacebar for some greens. Not sure if I like it yet or not, but its a fun idea either way.

I'll be sure to upload pictures of all the new bits I got in today, my custom spacebars look sweet though!

Brown, always!

Browns are typically considered midway between Blues and Reds, but they're either horrible or wonderful depending on the user and the spring is the same as a Red or Blue. Clears are better, but they're expensive, to say the least. The actuation force is somewhere between Reds and Blacks, I believe. Some people like Blacks for gaming since the actuation force is so high, but it might cause cramps or pain for typing and there's no feedback. Greens are basically Blue stems with Black springs, so you might like those. I love my Blues for typing and they're good for games. You don't get to take advantage of the click as much (since you'll hear a *thunk* from bottoming out anyway) and the release point is above the actuation point (or below? I can't remember) so you can't "float" it near the actuation point and double-tap easily. I'd go with Greens or Clears in your case, but try out a sampler with keycaps first. Take this with a grain of salt, since all I've used are Blues, but I did my research on the topic before purchasing. thumb.gif

I love the reds for gaming, I havent tried it with browns yet. Though just by my small amount of experience thus far im not sure if it would be an enjoyable experience. Loving it for typing though lol

Honest input on my new keyboard vs my m17X keyboard.


So im loving this keyboard, it was an excellent call on the switch type. it feels a lot like the keyboard on my m17X, which is exactly what I was asking for.

To be honest though, they don't feel all that different. The laptop keyboard feels a bit softer with harsher feed back and the mx blue keyboard feels harder with more docile feedback, other then that they feel pretty much the same. But the again my laptop keyboard on my m17x felt WAY WAY WAY better than the standard rubberdome keyboards.

I think this was absolutely worth it, but at the same time, not entirely that much of a step up. the clickyness sounds absolutely great and the clickclack is a bit of fun to listen too. as well as the longer key actuation feels more industrial. I feel like the m17X keyboard feels just like the mx blue keyboard but squished down to fit on a laptop.

I love both keyboards but im glad it wont be too harsh for me to go back and forth between both.
@ Paradigm, thanks for the help, you got me exactly what I was looking for. thumb.gif

However on another note, the m14X keyboard feels terrible compared to both the m17x and ducky mx blue keyboard.

Damn it, that sucks I was considering the m14x R2 for a while now since the m15x isnt viable these days.

If im not mistaken laptops tend to use the scissor switch correct? Its the only type of keys I can happily use without a mechanical keyboard

Makes me laugh of when i was first joining this forum, thinking how awesome it was to have my saitek cyborg keyboard. I hated that thing not long after and noticed how cheap of a product it was lol. OCN made me a wise consumer, but man my wallet cries a lot more often because of it lol

Same here, I had a G19 before this and that was marketed as one of the best "gaming keyboards". tongue.gif

Well at the very least we have something to be proud of. I look forward to modifying this keyboard in its days with me. Though the first thing will be reinforcement of the female end of the usb port on the keyboard. Then we can move from there

I was watching a newegg review of the new g19s, and the presenter was like, "These are rubber dome keys" "It's just a personal preference(between mechanical and non mechanical)"

I lol'd, everyone in the comments is mad that it isn't mechanical.

Well when I get home from work I will explain the symptoms of my KBTalking Pro. Maybe you guys can help me get it working. I like the keyboard, wish it was backlit, but I'm thinking QFR or TK for my next board, with either browns or greens.
