I’m looking for a 10-keyless keyboard that is either Alps White or MX Clear. I have at this point killed 2 or 3 switches on my razer keboard and the spacebar is cracked in half (in rage from spinbotters in CSGO).
I know very little about keyboards and would like a new one at the end of the summer at some point. I know of WASD and Das, but thats about it. I’m also a dvorak user, so if thats a possibility from the company that’d be great.
I know a little about the CM storm tenkeyless’, and that they are decent, however they are a little pricy.
I currently use an “ANNE PRO”, this is a 60% (so the arrow keys and home buttons are inside a function layer). these go for a good price here:
They use gateron switches, a Chinese clone of cherry’s after thier patent ran out, and are on most accounts actually better to use.
I would recommend.
It has many cherry switch options and is made from brushed alloy.
I think I’ll be leaning more for alps switches, but I agree that the K65 is really good. I’ve played with one a few times and liked it a lot.
ive not heard of alps switches
cail cherry and razor yes but not alps.
Anyway my 2p is as stated.
I sold a razor blackwidow ultimate so I could get a k70 in my office and on my htpc I run a k65 when gaming. I have 2x m65 you just cant beat Corsair imo
Ive had a lot of peripheral over the years and that’s where ive gotten to. All corsair
quality aint cheap
Very old company. Still around somewhat, but not like they used to be. Likely if you’ve used any old Kinesis boards or terminal boards you’ve used alps.
Well I looked around more and more and decided to just go with the razer option. I like linear switches alot anyways so I thought “Hell, might as well”.
Does what I need it to, and its a billion times quieter. Have yet to install it where it is going, but will do that in a little bit.
Expect a review in the next few days.
And in case you haven’t noticed this site I usually start here before looking at amazon and ebay. Tend to look at it then when I find something interesting, youtube reviews then look at cheap ebay knockoffs and back to youtube…
Thats pretty mich what I did haha. Didn’t really find anything that I liked and flirted with the idea of a wireless/wired unit. But, none exist that function like a logitech G700s, and I hate plainjane wireless keyboards, so I weighed my options and prices, didn’t like what was available, so I just got the one I have played with for the last month.
I didn’t realize the K65 came in anything other than CMX Reds. Other than reds, it’s a nice sturdy board. I prefer the CMStorm QFR TKL board though.
@sycpuppy beat me to it, but mechanicalkeyboards.com has some boards loaded with Alps. KBparadise (brand) has a TKL and 60% board with 'em.
