Most barebones boards would just be the case/pcb/stabilizers and you would still need to add switches and keycaps.

A nice option with the current sale price would be to grab a GMMK barebones. It's hot swap sockets so no soldering. Just drop in your switches and keycaps of choice. You could grab the switches from Glorious, but I would get keycaps elsewhere.

Also, thanks... I started looking around at keeb stuff and ended up buying 4 different sets of switches to try out...

Ended up with Kailh BOX pinks, BOX royal, speed navy, and TTC gold v2 brown switches.

Cool. I want to see what sort of reviews they have. Leopold has a plastic board that does not bend, which i find amazing. I remember having a WSD board way back, but never got this version.

SA profile key sets are all expensive. I paid over $100 for my SA Pulse set. Way better quality than the flimsy caps that are normally associated with ABS. While SA are a bit more substantial than Cherry or OEM profile and I assume more expensive to manufacture, they are still just overpriced pieces of plastic.

As far as actually typing preference goes, it's Cherry, OEM > SA > DSA

I have a WASD V2 fullsize and a WASD Code TKL. Been using both for years and I've had no issues whatsoever with either. If you try to twist and flex them, they'll give a little bit, but under regular use they feel very solid. They're not the cheapest keyboards out there, but they're not horribly expensive either and I really do recommend them.

YES indeed, if your heavily into Mechanical keyboards using the Cherry-MX stem then spending thousands on your keyboards so they look Fantastic, is nothing at all.


The pleasure is derived from customizing your piece so it doesn't look like most others, although today it seems a lot more people are buying SA profiled key-sets.
