From first hand experience, how much quieter do you find white switches to blues? It's hard to tell by youtube videos and everything because all mics are different.

It really hard to say because I bottom the crap out of every keystroke. When I push the switch slowly, the difference in the sound is more like you wrapped the switch in cotton. You can still hear the click, but it has a heavier sound - more of a "thwock" sound than a click to my ears. Probably has to do with the insane amount of lube that they put in them (also probably why they are so inconsistent - lube between the slider and the stem.)
It's so little!

Yeah, I really wish there was a way for there to be a quiet cherry mx blue switch. I had looked into cherry mx whites at one point in time but I couldn't bring myself to trying them with all the reports of non clicking out of the box and after light use.

Clears are pretty quiet though, so that is a plus if you are looking for something quiet.

Scary part is I'm probably willing to get two keyboards total: One with blues and one with clears, and then just use the blues when the hubby's awake. We'll see though, because I'd first have to find a spot to have two keyboards ^-^;;;

They have good resell so you wouldn't lose much even if you don't like it, and if you manage to score a deal via ebay auction you may not lose anything or even make a bit. Topre is one of those things that is kinda hard to recommend because for some it's like the end of the road and for others it's "what, I paid $200+ for something like a rubberdome?"

Reading comparisons really doesn't help either, I researched them for a long time and thought I had an understanding but eventually learned I really didn't. You can read as much as you want about soft tactility or "high end rubberdome" or whatever but it's kinda just like hearing about the difference of a mech vs membrane for the first time. Just something you have to try for yourself.

Re-reading my post I forgot to say why I like that MemoryExpress has the Novatouch listed: to be able to get a very basic idea of whether or not I would like Topres in the first place ^-^

That realforce 104 with black on black keys is gorgeous..

Oh, you mean like they would actually have the board out for you to demo? That's pretty cool, only place I know of in the US that you can demo topre is the elitekeyboards store in california which isn't exactly accessible for most of us. I have the 104UB and it's indeed really nice looking, it's basically a stealth keyboard but the legend is still kinda there if you need it. I'm gonna be replacing it with the HHKB though since I'd really prefer the smaller footprint. Or maybe I'll just bring it to work...

Hey guys. Just wanted to ask for a quick advice.
I've been eager to buy a mech keyboard for a long time. I've never tried any switches, but figured that brown ones are a good middle ground for both typing and gaming

Where I'm from there's not a lot of variety of keyboards to choose from (mostly Black/Blue/Razer switches or the expensive DAS keyboards), and since I have relatives coming in from Canada I thought maybe I could buy something off newegg there. Can you guys suggest a good and relatively cheap model from this page: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100056746%20600470469&IsNodeId=1&name=Brown%20Cherry%20MX ? I figured Corsair K70 is the best choice from the reviews, but maybe you guys could suggest better.

Also, if there are any Canadians from Toronto here that could suggest a better keyboard and a place to buy it from it would be great too.

Poker II with clears is back up on massdrop as well.


Figures, I pulled the trigger on an HHKB yesterday and my other top choice for a 60% shows up. I really want to try clears (and ergo clears) and have worries about the HHKB layout, but I also shouldn't keep spending money on keyboards. :/

Be sure to give your opinions on the hhkb, that is one of the two keyboards left that I have any interest in at the moment. I just wish there was a black HHKB type s, makes no sense that they only make a white type s angrysmiley.gif

I bought my Ducky from NCIX, they have a Canadian site at NCIX.ca
