its weird, been using blacks for about a month now, and now I want heavier blacks. Too bad the ballpoint pen spring is so hard to get uniform.

I would worry you are tensing up more than you should, make sure you keep those hands as relaxed as possible while using the keyboard.

no, i use a really weird setup at work.

the program I use allows custom macros and key aliases and things.
and I've adopted a FPS gamer style to my set up.

pretty much q, w, e, r, a, s, d, f, z, x, and c control all the commands of my program.

but pressing "a, enter" is one command, but "a, a, enter" is a different command and "a,a,a,enter" etc.
Basically it allows me to have access to all the programs commands without having to type in 'arc' I just hit 'x,x,enter'
or 'matchproperties' is just 'q,q,enter,' That way I always can keep one hand on the mouse instead of constantly going back and fourth on the keyboard, which allows me to work faster.
Also why I have the random colored keycaps in certain places, all my 'enter keys' are green, all my erase/delete keys are red, and one yellow for 'undo'

I just happen to slam on the keys each time I hit them, and from moving from reds to blacks, I bottom out less, and an even stiffer spring would pretty much prevent me from bottoming out, and would make an even quieter keyboard.

as far as typing, I wouldn't like it, i'm even considering going back to blues or greens for a keyboard at home.

@HPE i woud love whites, but I'm not going to bother with searching for old hard to find switches. maybe if someone came out with some stiffer custom springs or something I would go for it.

I'm excited, but not overly so yet, we'll see if it actually gets here. After this long, I'm not going to have faith until I actually see the board.


on another note...I bought two sets of WASD keys from a guy on eBay, wb2art, one Blue and the other Dark Grey. They feel nice and don't seem to be of bad quality, but they are only about 1/2 as tall as the normal keycaps on my QF Pro (see the picture below). They feel so weird when trying to type that I can't use them on this KB. I'm going to take them home and try them on my Ducky Shine Zero, but I think it will have the same results.

I just wanted to give you all a heads up if you look at his stuff. I don't want to knock him as a seller, he sent me what I ordered and I got it in about 2 days (which was much quicker than I expected), but the caps are so short, I just can't see them being useful unless I could find a full set of the same height.


Sorry for the crappy picture, the camera on my phone sucks.


Anyone know where I can pick up a full set of black keys this height?

All this within probably 3-4 months biggrin.gif


Figured I'd check out how my typing speed is now:




Seems like a little worse than before, but still not complaining.
I type so much on a daily basis I figured I'd get faster, not slower.

Yeah, I miss the days when I could type 75-80 WPM, but I just don't type as much anymore (job is more about using different keys for commands than entering info). When I was working on my Poly Sci degree and typing 15 to 20 page papers every week, I could type like mad, but now, not so much...at least I'm still accurate.
