[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 3449

post #34481 of 36849
I used to think it was a myth too, but ever since I got my redscarves, i've not been interested in any other keyboard out there. ( at least any for DD's )
I'll pick up an RGB poker whenever they come out, but i'm sticking with the light saver layout. It's perfect for me.


I got mine in silver, matches everything, and not as flashy. I thought about going with red, but I don't have any keycaps that would match it.

ZZ-96 full aluminium case,
redscarf 3 pcb/plate,
mx blues
Cherry Irish keycap set.

I'm only getting the case in tomorrow, the pcb and rest of the parts won't be in until after the chinese new year, but after that I'll assemble the leftover parts into a board to re-sell.

Unfortunately i've picked up another expensive hobby ( cycling ) so I don't have as much cash for keyboard toys any more and can't afford to keep them all around.

I've sold off both my model M's, and am still trying to find a home for my pokers.

Oh, that makes sense. It would also explain the custom plates I see with the extra notches. They didn't really make sense until I looked into it a bit more. +rep thumb.gif

yeah, notches make life easy. I'm at the point ( because I swap swiches/layouts quite often ) that I only do pcb mount or plates with notches.

I started using a WASD/Das at work and at home about 8 months ago. My first mechanical keyboards. At first I was like, "hm, this is nice," but it didn't blow my mind. I just pulled out my old company-issued rubber dome keyboard for kicks and OH MY GAD it's so, so much worse than I remembered. How did I ever type on this thing for 8 hours a day? There's no way I could go back it would be torture. I have no idea why the change didn't seem so drastic at first.

because mechanical keyboards is how god intended us to type! and that is a scientific fact

Indeed, its a pretty dramatic difference going from mechanical back to rubber dome, especially bad rubber domes.

@hyp36rmax

I hate to say it..but I'm probably going to sell my mx boards and pick up another HHKB in white with non printed.

I'm currently typing on an pok3r 3 with DSA Dolch caps right now and can't stand it lol. biggrin.gif
