black vs clear vs whatever you guys say - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Sounds like you are well on our way on RMAing every keyboard in an effort to try every switch.

Good plan.

They also feel VERY different.

Blacks would be noisier than browns since you basically need to bottom out to type fast on blacks, not on browns.
Not true, at least from my experience.

I agree that the Blacks are similar in noise to the Browns, as it is very difficult to not bottom out on the blacks.
Depends on whether you are typing or gaming. In regards to typing, I felt I would have had to have gone out of my way to bottom out on Blacks.

Actually quite nice switches for typing, but tiring. Was happy to go back to buckling springs afterwards.

I'm trying the MX blues and I have to say that although they are a lot of better than the average dome keyboard I find their feeling inferior to the buckling springs and also to some good dome implementation as the MS/Razer reclusa.

BTW I consider way better the scissor ones from the Thinkpad built by NMB (every thinkpad has at least two providers for the same part number).

Probably the MX clears are better suited for my taste, the two stroke mechanism from the blue sounds like something fake, artificial.

Probably I'll go for swapping my blues with a bounch of clears, or simply i will try the deck keyboard tactile, or last option, i will buy a Logitech illuminated and I will stop my experiment with the mechas.

One thing is sure, i don't like the blues

If you need quieter but like tactile return both, and tell Deck to send you one with Clears in it. Has the tactile bump from the brown but the spring from the black. Awesome to type on!

Already looked @deck, but it has the main disadvantage of the ANSI layout only, and its look is a bit ugly.

I will spend 150 or more euro on a keyboard only when and if i find the perfect one.

For now the logitech illuminated is the closest keyboards to my needs.

Great tactile feedback, UK or IT layout available, retroillumination and reasonably price.

Go for the Deck Tactile. That is what I have. From what you have described I think it is exactly what you are looking for.

I suppose from the buckling spring comment that you already have some sort of UK layout Model M or Unicomp?

I'm sure that the white switches are my preferred ones even if I haven't touched one.

But I still don't want to buy a deck.

I'm still in doubt beteween the logitech illuminated or the brown Xarmor where I can easily change the switches.

I haven't one right now, but given that i had the my first PC in the far 82 i used a lot of them as a lot of Olivetti fantastic keyboards.

Usually US-ISO or Italian, i feel a bit dumb but i discovered the UK layout only recently, i was completely unaware of this layout (the UK extended I mean) and is by far the best of the three, so I quicly switched to it on all my keyboards, notebook included.

Keyboard absolutely HAS to be mechanical? There are some rubber domed boards that feel pretty good too and won't be loud enough to wake the 'mates.

I know, the Reclusa I had was a very good keyboard, but now I want something of "definitive" and my heart is still divided between the mechas and the thinkpad ones and the logithech illuminated should mimic the thinkpad feeling very well.
