post #5121 of 36849

how epic. i came to this thread for the first time and it said there was 5100 unread post. thats a pretty damn big listing. im not gonna read them all. anyway i have been thinking about getting a new keyboard for a while. today i purchased my first mechanical one. i know its kinda oldish. but i chose the thermaltake meka g1. i can honestly say that even tho it has cherry blacks. im really like the way it feels when i type. its almost like my fingers are flowing now. i might look at something a bit different to take into work since i spend most of my day at working typing in a CLI instead of doing gaming.

My backspace key on the mini used to have a rickety loose sound when wiggled. After I put my doubleshot set on it didn't happen anymore I think it was the stabilizers.

Oh really. What did you put on it all black? Or was that picture earlier how it looks now? I though I remember you said you changed it since the white keys were on.

got this in the mail today and..... wheee.gifwheee.gifwheee.gifwheee.gifwheee.gifwheee.gifwheee.gif

this thing is BEAUTIFUL. many people have already said it, but it's worth saying again.. go and buy Eric's wood wrist rests. they are worth every penny and more. i am definitely getting another one for my filco and a headphone stand.

i only went with the wrist rest part because i'd like to carry it around and i have no room on my desk for it (which sucks, because i'd love to have the whole thing)

Ducky Shine arrived a few days ago. Finally got a chance to take a picture.

Red LEDs and red switches. Feels very sturdy, nice to type on.

I love typing on my cherry blacks, but i can honestly say i did prefer blues when i had them. I just wanted to try a linear switch. The only time i type on my home computer is OCN though, i never do any work there, mostly gaming. All of my real typing is done at work.

Im a bit new to "mechanical" keyboards and just found out I was one of the lucky winners of the win one of 50 Ducky mechanical keyboards. But im a bit baffled as to which one to go for, as all I really do is game and browse ocn, so I would be gratefull if you could shine some light on which one to go for, that would be suit my uses...out of MX Black,Blue,Brown or RED?

Thanks

Unfortunately, the only way to find out which you will prefer is to try some, and that's not easy to do.

If you're gaming, most people will tell you to get a linear switch. Those are red or black.
If you'll be typing, they'll say get a tactile switch, like blue or brown.

I've found that, for me anyway, i can do anything on any switch. I gamed in tactile, and typed with blacks.

There's a load more information here. It's difficult to go wrong with any switch though, but i started with blues and loved them. Now i'm onto blacks and i love those too.
