Ignorance is bliss.

If you're telling the truth on your typing speed you'd greatly benefit from a mechanical keyboard. You'd be even faster.

I had to quote this:




No offence but I completely disagree with most of your post.

(1) Get off your high horse. Rubber domes are far from being a pile of turd.
I can write fast, play games and everything on my rubber dome and feels just right.
Don't think that because I have a rubber dome keyboard I'm trying to protect all rubber domes now. I'm not... Its just that in the end, even a rubber dome keyboard fulfills its purpose very nicely and, IMO, better than a mech one. I, for one, don't like the click they make (mechs).

(2) bashing robber domes as if they ware complete trash? Come on... Thats your opinion, maybe, but not the absolute truth.

(3) Thats like claiming blue bloods are superior humans ... they are still humans.
A keyboard is still a keyboard and rubber domes are not THAT much worse than a mech.
You're exaggerating...
No, he is not exaggerating. You have obviously never used a mechanical keyboard before.

Your just butthurt that you spent over 100$ on a dome keyboard when you could have gotten a far superior mechanical keyboard for the same price or cheaper.

There are many great mechs that cost 150-200$ but now that you can get a Razer Black Widow for 80-85$ there is no excuse not to go mechanical.

No one should pay more then 50$ for a dome keyboard, a 10$ dome will perform just as good as any G15 or similar 100$+ dome keyboard with fancy screens and other gimics.

I did a typing test on an Apple aluminium keyboard and got about 100-110 WPM, which is about as high as I get on just about any of my mechanical keyboards. It's not particularly accurate to say that switching to a mech keyboard automatically makes you quicker at typing compared with a non-mechanical of decent quality and condition.

Agreed. There are definitely some higher quality rubber dome keyboards, like Keytronics, but even they aren't that expensive.

I love mechanicals!
I've had a god knows what kind of keyboard, probably rubber dome, and now that I'm typing on my black widow i know the difference

Another MW poll?

Is this where we talk about Windows 3.1 versus Vista?

I voted no because I happen to be typing on a Apple touchscreen right now.

And at N=100 it's 2/3rds Mechanical and 1/3 Rubber Dome.

I always was good at math.

They're one of the best readily available mechanical keyboards. Thankfully the one I getting today is the best of the 3. That being said, there are better, but damned if they aren't a pain to get for me.

The one I am getting today, I got for 70$ through Das Keyboard's replacement program. Once she told me that I was like "kk here's my credit card."
