Rather than necro a thread that’s been dead for a while, here’s a new one.
So what is this thread? A place to discuss mechanical keyboards you have, what you like about different kinds of mech keyboards, and so forth.
Beyond the normal forum rules, i have one to add:
As this thread is about largely preference based opinions and prefernces, try not to get in fights is all that I would ask.
With that out of the way my collection of sorts so far is this:
My cheap, nice little Redgragon with Gateron Blues. Great for gaming, only minor issue i have is the caps lock is easy to accidentally press lol. Also has red LEDs which can be useful. Is also incredibly loud, and about 5g heavier than MX blues are on the switch actuation.
Old School WYSE PC-Enhanced with MX Blacks:
Really nice switches, the original MX blacks from the early 90s.Had to mod it with a Teensy to get it to work on USB but is still quite nice.
Later added custom keycaps (minus the ones that didnt fit)
Last (for now) is the IBM PC 5150 Model F:
epic switches+keyboard, the thing weighs 10 lbs or so lol. Just got the adpater to use it as a daily, that will be here at some point.
So what mechanical keyboards do you have? What switches do you like, not like, etc.? Have any cool project, or anything else, if so link/talk about them iirc @Zibob has some interesting stuff.
and yes the name is similar to @anon43920604’s gun corner because it makes sense as a name
