too bad it's ISO and not ANSI frown.gif but they are awesome either way

Green alps? What does the switch feel like?

Stiff blues sounds nice. I'd like to try it out. Is it loud as hell?

well, im not bothered by clickiness so maybe your "loud as hell" is my "normal"

but they are a tad bit louder than my filco blues. but i think that's because the filco feels and sounds crispier. also, pinging switches doesn't help with the sound. im not one to complain about ping since 99% of the time i don't hear it but with this board, even gracing your fingers across it you can hear it.

but switching to the doubleshots helped a bit.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm always interested in trying out new switches. Would like to try greens one day. Have yet to seen someone show a picture of a board with cherry greens though. Seems pretty rare.

well, my only interaction with cherry greens was from the switch numpad tester board from GH. soon as i pressed it i fell in love. if they are available for purchase, i think that's what im going to use for my phanthom board.

Oh you got your hands *fingers* on that tester. Nice.
Phantom huh what's the deal with that thing? Customized to your liking or is there something special about it.?

well there are 3 i believe custom lay outs. the big one being one where you can use all the cherry double shots (like the stepped capslock, which is my main reason for participating. i want that stepped caps lock!!) instead of having to use a moogle kit. and you can basically get in switch (that is available). i believe litster is also going to do a group buy from acrylic cases for the phantom.

plus it's just a fun project, GH finally getting their own keyboard.. first step into not drooling over the korean's ridiculously awesome keyboards. although im sure it'll take time to reach their level. but it's a start!

Its cool for sure. I just don't have the cash to keep up. What's so special about the Koreans keyboard? Should I go lurking their forum?

Might be looking for a mechanical keyboard for gaming. Something not loud and backlit for night playing with lights off.

I'm thinking Razer Black Widow Stealth or Corsair K90. Both are cherry reds.

Anyone have any suggestions in this club? I thought I'd ask here instead of start a new thread.

Not heard much about the Corsair Vengence K90. I almost bought the Razer Black Widow but it was a tad too loud. Heard the 'stealth' version is quieter.
