My new Steelseries 7G I got today, and my Model M that I used VHT Vinyl Dye to dye the casing. Thinking of using RIT Dye to color the WASD keys red.

Model M looks clean, nice job

How do you like your cherry black board as far as typing goes?

Thanks, I'm glad it came out as nice as it did.

So far the cherry black isn't too bad to type on. I do find I'm making typos a bit more but I'm still getting used to the feel of the keyboard so I guess it's to be expected. I Was using a Logitech G15 prior to the Steelseries.

The reason why I'm interested in the blacks is because I find myself making many typos on lighter switches such as my browns and topre's. I think that stiffer keys will help a lot in typing more precisely. There's a huge hate wagon on MX blacks for typing though so I'm just a teeeeeny bit worried if I won't like them. I'm probably going to end up taking the plunge anyway though.

Seems like he'd find ergo clears interesting too. You could do what I did - mod a G80-3494 with them. Since it's PCB-mounted it's super easy and requires zero soldering.

You can use clear keycaps to show off too:


And no, that \\KL key is not "shopped"

I finally got to try my first mechanical keyboards today (and topre)!!!!111 I would post pictures of my experience at Akihabara but I was enjoying myself too much and the extra time after was inexistent. My sister wanted to go to other stores so I had to rush. Blue switches were by far my most favorite. The click and bump felt great. Browns were great too. I didn't like them as much as the blues but they were really nice. It was a little more restrictive than blue but the bump was fine. Black was my least favorite switch. It was really restrictive so red was more towards my liking. I also got to see my first computer parts today. The graphics cards were a lot bigger than I thought. They looked like...I don't really know what to say. Topres felt great too. We got lost there most of the time though. The maps I printed out were unclear. I spent more time getting lost then having fun.

I'm still stuck between which keyboard to get. The Cleverly store didn't have any Leopold tenkeyless boards. The SofMap stores had them. No Ducky boards. I didn't expect any though. I need help deciding quickly because the boards here are less expensive and tomorrow is my last day. Help please.
