it's hard to tell if you like topre or not without having tried them for a bit. they're nothing like cherries, but also not really that similar to the average membrane-rubberdome keyboard..
if you're used to cherries, you might not like topre switches the first few minutes you try them. gotta give'em a chance! biggrin.gif
there's also a pretty big difference in feel between the different weightings (30g, 45g, 55g, variable..)
for actual typing, i love a realforce with 55g switches. but as an all-rounder, i prefer a hhkb with 45g smile.gif
Tried the hhkb when i was in japan, though i cannot recall which weight. The stroke feels full and substantial for me. I do like my cherry browns but the feel of a topre is also nice. the only downside is they're very pricey compared to my filco

I don't want to draw attention from the current discussion, but does anyone have any idea why my Pok3r won't take white LEDs when it does blue and UV just fine? AFAIK, UV, blue, and white all run on 3.3v, so unless the 3 whites I pulled from this bag to test were all dead, I don't know why they won't work...

You could test the leds with one of those flat 3.3v batteries, just to be sure.

I just confirmed they work by swapping out the blue caps and scroll lock leds on my Filco to white. It seems to be a problem with the Pok3r... Or I put them in backwards, although I doubt it considering the PCB is marked.

Edit: Figured it out.

yaee!!!







This thing is great, probably weighs close to 10lbs, and is solid as crap.

Not quite finihsed yet as some parts are still being produced, and the case is a bit tall with a steep angle, but other than that, its perfect.

That looks great!

I got this in for some time:

Not a big fan of the fonts used, but can't do much without doubleshot injection:

I wish it was more consistent though, some keycaps are done worse than others. Also, I have never seen this happen before:

Just 2 LEDs not responding no matter what. Turns out, neither had Mechanical Keyboards seen anything like this and it's on it's way back for repairs frown.gif

Surprising to see that many problems on a Ducky, I was under the impression they were higher quality than that.
post #34508 of 36837
Honestly, I will cover it in the review more but the keyboard was flexing a bit too. I think they had to cut some corners to hit that $165 mark with the doubleshot keycaps, dual PCB design and RGB lighting (which itself wasn't the greatest implementation).

From what I hear, the white keycaps on the YOTG edition have way more consistent fonts.

Thinking of picking up a 60% board, what does everyone think of the Pok3r? Thinking about grabbing it with Clear switches, I currently have reds and blues and am looking to try something a bit different. I'm finding the reds a bit too light and the blues I don't mind but I have currently at work and it's a full size board.

The customization is great on the Pok3r. Nice tactile bump with the clears too. I did find them a bit too heavy for me though.
