Not OP, but this looks like it's the right one. Iirc, they're as squishy as they look.

Hopefully this thread won't get locked like the last one. I wanted to make this post because the last one got locked before my prom ended, so I didn't get to answer all the questions. I also had quite a few people wanting to see it up close, so here it is. It's nothing too exciting to any experience r/mk veteran, but I still got quite a few questions that people kept messaging me that I'd like to answer in one post.
-Yes it's a real keyboard
-No, it's not wireless (As you can see here)
-I'm using cherry mx blues and I think that they're infinitely better than the browns that I had on my last mechanical keyboard.
-You can get the WASD keycaps here. It also came with a space bar but I felt like I was straying from the minimalist goal so I replaced it with a blank.
-I forget where I bought the blanks from.
-I originally planned on making this keyboard from scratch. I had the look all planned out, but unfortunately I've been way to busy with school to find the time to make it so I ended up buying a pre-built. This is a pok3r vortex and I'd highly recommend it for anyone trying to get into keyboards

Yo I own 2 of those Samsung C27 monitors and I can say, there are vesa mounting brackets on Amazon for $30 or so each and they work great. Here's the link for the 27in version, it doesn't work with 32in, but they have one for the 32in I believe
Amazon reviews oftentimes aren't actually helpful, and people may just use "helpful" as an upvote button (i.e. when they find it funny).
I mean, the top review for this banana slicer currently shows that 58,215 people found it helpful. Yes, nearly sixty-thousand for a banana slicer.
Most of these headphones are just rebranded generics from Aliexpress or some such, so I did some digging and found them for sale on Amazon. Mid-range price at $35.00
Can I buy that keyboard bridge in USA?
Never mind I found it.

Also, this is 89.99 on Amazon
EDIT: for those interested
I was gonna buy one myself but: >PLEASE NOTE: Our unit cleans using wind speed created by a motor and impeller. It does not compress air so the way it cleans is by using wind rather than pressure. This allows it to clean without damaging electronics but it also means the PSI is low. If you need a high PSI device this is not for you.
Oh good I've been downvoted before on this sub for not knowing to much the board is a keychron K2 and the enter key is a set with a space bar escape key it's on Amazon here's the link Dragon

Rollerblade wheels for your desk chair, I bought some over a year ago and they were very much worth it imo.
Check out Blender if you want to dip your feet into 3d art! It's free professional grade software with a great community and tons of resources for beginners. You already have all the expensive bits of the hobby, which is the hardest part really, so you might as well put them to good use!
This is such a gorgeous setup btw. I'm supremely jealous.
First off, credit for this idea goes to /u/jaredj who mentioned using one of these in his build log here.
I ordered one on Amazon to try it out, and it arrived today so I thought I'd share a little demo of how well this thing works. If you've done any handwired builds, I think you'll immediately be sold on it.
Also, I trimmed off a bit of the connected diode leg before wrapping it, but you could leave it the full length if needed. I tested it that way, too.
NOT making a cent from this, just a link to the product so people can check it out.
Hey guys! I have been teasing this set in a few of the Mech Discords for a while, and I figured I'd finally post it here.
This is a DSA Dyesub set inspired by Hyper Light Drifter, an indie game made by Heart Machine. I plan to have just the alphanumerical keycaps (45 keys) to be in thie IC, as the Mods are impossible to do in these colors. Unless you guys want the modifiers in a dark grey with black icons, let me know your interest in that!
Here is a render of the keycaps that are going to be IC'd (No modifiers)
Credit to /u/__end for the render listed above.
Credit to Lem (/u/GloriousToothless) from the Discord Server for the render of the Alphanumericals.
The copper wire OP is using is very thick. You don’t need that thick of wire.
Solid core wire can be expensive; however, the secret is to buy 20 gauge invisible dog fence wire. This stuff comes in bulk and is ridiculously cheap. Can get 500’ of it for $22. And with 500’ you will have enough wire to make keyboards for a very long time. It’s probably more than you could ever use.
The name of the keyboard is the HP Pavilion Mechanical Gaming Keyboard 500 and here is the amazon link for it:
The real disgusting part is that they marketed it as a mechanical keyboard when it is actually a membrane keyboard. The only part mechanical about this keyboard is the slider within the fake switch.
here's another alternative. it has rainbow keys versus a rainbow base.
Just found it on Amazon, but it is out of stock. :(
Edit: available on Aliexpress. :D
It's a Teppo Ashigaru Sandtrooper. Found it on Amazon.
This is the one I have, but the one in this link doesn't have the block of foam, I don't think. Mine came with a block of foam that fits in the bottom that's all perforated so you can tear out sections so that it'll fit whatever you're putting in, which luckily fits the keyboard perfectly.
Anne Pro 2 with GB exclusive Aluminum case, both from Flashquark
Switches are 80g Aliazstotles for that CLINK
These are actually X Keys relegendable keycaps, but DSA or DCS relegendables are also a great choice.
Omg, it's so small. Can't wait for mine to arrive. Just ended up getting it from Amazon because the idea of saving $15 for a multi-month wait sounds absurd. Unless one wants a rarer switch of course.
EDIT: Here's some Amazon links as many have requested.
Here's a selection of MagicForce and you can narrow the search down by Ctrl/Cmd+F and searching "Gateron, Cherry, Outemu" depending on the switch brand you prefer, or adding the switch brand to Search. Just be careful with where it's shipping from. Sometimes Amazon lists items that are being sold from halfway across the world that ships by sea.
The Gateron Brown I specifically bought is here.
I also would like to recommend Akko's keycaps.
They are probably best known for their CS switches which are sort of a sleeper hit among budget switches, sounding great stock and having amazing packaging too. Seriously, I would buy just the packaging for their switches if they offered it.
Their packaging is great for their ASA keycaps too. The one I got
I can't compare them to a GMK set or something like that, but compared to some of the Aliexpress sets I got, the Akko keycaps feel really premium and are presented very well. Being able to buy them on Amazon is a plus too.
I recommend checking out Typing.com. I learned to touch type in about a month or two of practicing everyday on it for about 15 minutes.
If you go for it I would recommend you start right at the beginning even if it seems too easy. They really get you to develop the proper habits of hitting the keys in the way they should be hit. I used to hit keys with the wrong fingers and after going through the whole beginner, intermediate and advanced courses not only am I able to touch type but my WPM speed doubled.
BTW it's free.

I didn't make this, I bought it from Amazon. I think it's a MX blue switch.
Really wish they used the best switch ever made... Cherry MX Brown :)
If you have a custom PC, it's a simple install.
Frame is plastic composite with rubber-oil coating. The inside is reinforced with a steel substrate so the circuit board is completely protected. It uses Kailh or Cherry MX switches and it's fully modular so you can switch them out with a basic tool that's included. Cherry MX switches commonly have LED sockets that are too small though so those will work but won't fasten all the way. If you would like more information, I have all other details here
Sort of, I play opsu! an open source osu! client that runs on linux (I would play on windows, but I only have Linux boxes atm). I've only played original osu! a little bit, but opsu! seems to be a pretty faithful implementation except it's much harder to fail a beatmap. A hear osu! is going open source soon, so a linux port should be coming soon.

$190 on Amazon... hmmm...
That's $81.50 and all that's left is switches and keycaps.
Can get 60 Cherry MX Speed switches at Novelkeys for $33 (if you like those switches, and there are cheaper options for switches), and two Ortho Base DSA Blank sets at PMK for $52, which probably isn't the cheapest way to go, but I didn't bother really looking. So $85, and you can probably save a lot of money getting keycaps from mechmarket.
That's $166.50 all-in, not counting shipping. And most builders probably have extra parts leftover from previous builds.
And you can't run QMK on a Corsair.
I'd say you have good taste in most things in life but those headphones are atrocious.

You know how fast lightning is, right? They like, harnessed that shit and put it in a keyboard. And it reminds you to GAME every time you look at it, it's gotta have some great performance.
It's cheaper on amazon than on massdrop.
>Oh wait you can ask for recommendations there granted you're looking for a $1000 pair.
Which is insane to me.
Here's the deal: I'm a bit of an audiophile. I've been a musician for 15+ years, and I am obsessed with sound. I will spend hours researching which preamp tube to put in the V5 position of my backup amp that I use once a year, because it produces a sound that's so slightly different that you'd have to use a frequency analyzer to detect the difference.
I produce music as well (home studio, granted), so I spend hours listening to the same tracks on every piece of equipment I own, tweaking and refining the most miniscule, pointless details.
I say this stuff in hopes that it will give me some credibility when I say this: unless you're doing music production or mastering, a pair of $30 headphones are more than enough for anybody.
I recently bought these, and I honestly can't tell the difference between them and my $280 Sennheisers, aside from a little extra bass and a little less treble in the cheaper pair.
They're fine. Spending $1000 on a pair of heaadphones is like throwing $900 into your garbage disposal.
This one. I can only compare with CM Storm QuickFire Rapid, which I tried at store, and it's pretty decent.
Some of their keycaps are straight up clones of others which alot of people don't support, but I personally would rather support that than support the resale price for some Kat milkshakes so it's whatever for me if the creator of the original design doesn't like it he should find a way to get his designs to be an in-stock item. 🤷
I got them on amazon but they only had the white ones. There may be others if you look around though.
Hey, first off, I think it's awesome that you're going so out of your way to get such an amazing gift for your boyfriend! Based off of everything that you've, he doesn't seem to be too well-versed in mechanical keyboards which is totally fine. I think a great keyboard that he can tinker with and "upgrade" later on is the Glorious Modular Mechanical Keyboard. It has hotswap capability which means he can buy new keyswitches later on and easily replace the ones on his keyboard to get a more premium feel or just to experiment. It is currently on amazon for $75 and I think he'll really like it. There are tons of other boards out there, but based off of what you've described, I think he'll really like this one. Please don't hesitate to private message me or ask any more questions as this subreddit is, for the most part, really friendly and helpful. Here is a link to the board I was talking about,
> This may be one of the most expensive hobbies you will have.
/r/aquariums (high-tech planted, saltwater)
All say "Hi."
The keyboard is a Ducky Shine 3. As much as I like the fancy LED's, I wanted to go for some custom keycaps. I saw Ingrid Pierre's pokemon keyboard and thought it would be a lot cooler with the unown alphabet!
I tried to pack as many pokemon themed icons as I could into it. I have the first 8 badges for fn1-fn8 (which are all relabeled as HMs like in Ingrid Pierre's layout). I even changed the exclamation mark and the question mark to be little unown characters.
EDIT: Forgot to mention, MX Browns
Also, so far the WASD printed keycaps have been doing fine (I've had this for almost 5 months now). You can actually feel a bit of a bump on the keys where the print is which is distracting at first but you get used to it. I was worried that I would rub off the art but so far I haven't seen any wear which is great!
I'm fairly certain it's the Logitech G102/203, in white of course.
IMO it's one of the best mice within that price point.
These keycaps’ price to quality ratio is almost unbelievable. For just $30 USD you get thick PBT and dye-subbed legends. I was skeptical when I saw the price, but ordered them out of curiosity. I was so pleasantly surprised. They look and feel amazing in person. I plan to eventually buy every colorway of them because they’re just that good.
The board I have them on is a GH60 PCB with an aluminum plate in a plastic case with shelf liner and unlubed Gateron Yellows.
Bottom board is a Filco MJ2 MX blues in Grey Alu case from Aliexpress with GMK Dolch.
Top board is a Silenced Novatouch with DSA Dolch.

He noticed I've been ordering a bunch of individual caps & found this lovely pastel rainbow set on Amazon as a present! Super thoughtful, I love how it's all starting to come together! More pics; https://imgur.com/gallery/6rjZF

In software engineering, rubber duck debugging or rubber ducking is a method of debugging code. The name is a reference to a story in the book The Pragmatic Programmer in which a programmer would carry around a rubber duck and debug their code by forcing themselves to explain it, line-by-line, to the duck. Many other terms exist for this technique, often involving different inanimate objects.
I now have a rainbow of switches!
Edit: More info!
This is the switch tester I used. I ordered both the 2x3 one with the Kailh switches and the 3x3 one with Cherry switches. I'm not the biggest fan of Kailh switches, but I wanted the orange and the light green to complete my rainbow.
I actually didn't end up using any Cherry switches in the project because I had already ordered some single Gateron switches for this project. Here are the different switch colors/brands:
Red, yellow, green, blue - Gateron
Orange & light green - Kailh/Razer
Teal & pink - Mod
Purple - Zeal
One of my friends was nice enough to give me some of his spare Zeals so I could swap the springs and stems into Zeal housings to make the whole project translucent. Bonus: spring/stem swapping is way easier than I expected and now I want to experiment with that even more. ;)
The common mistake people make is that they type with their wrists on the wrist rest or below the keyboard as seen in the picture.
The rest is there for the times you stop typing. Hence the name. It’s a place for you to literally rest your wrists when you have stopped typing and need a break.
When you type your wrists should be parallel to the keyboard floating above it. Your wrists should be neutral or very slightly flexed. The wrists in the picture are extended.
I’m sure someone will disagree with me but you can look it up if you like. Seeing people type with their wrists resting on the wrist rest is weird.
My aunt was a legal secretary and typist for 40 years who went from typing school with type writers to electronic typewriters to keyboard and mouse. Posture and technique was almost always to blame where pain from typing was concerned.

I think these are the keycaps.
Edit: here's an Amazon link to the same set of keycaps. My other link is for ordering them off of Banggood.
Great video. I started this way but eventually just moved to one of these . Its insanely easier and kind of takes the technique factor away from it. The only thing to look out for when using one of these is that you cannot control the temperature, it is constant. Sometimes its good to unplug it for a bit and let it cool off. But its super cheap and very easy to use. It heats and sucks at the same time!
Well, it is a 250 watt light. Sure, that particular light is extremely expensive, but that's because it is a professional studio photography light, not because of the output.
If you want a 250w light, here's one for $11:
With a heavier spring, the change in pressure/force offered up by the tactile leaf would be a much smaller overall percentage, than with a lighter spring. This would make it harder to notice the bump offered by the leaf.
Take the box jade and navy for example. The bump on the jade with it's lighter spring, is much more easily perceived.
Edit: Further to my example, below are the force graphs. You will note that both the jade and navy have roughly a 40g drop due to the click bar (38ish for the navy, 44ish for the Jade), but for the navy that equates to have the total force, where as for the jade that drop is 2/3rd.

E-Element z88. I’ve had it for about a year, it’s great. Not sure of the switches but I’m pretty sure they come in Outemu blues, reds or browns. Great keyboard for about 40 bucks. It comes with rgb so that’s a bonus, and on top of that you don’t have to solder to change the switches. You can find it here

Wait, you're telling me that ridiculous keyboard on Amazon has a mouse that goes with it???
lol. I use MessagEase. (iOS link)
It only has 9 keys, but I can type everything from one screen. Numbers, symbols, etc. I can even move where my cursor is very easily, making selecting a specific spot so much easier.
I've used chartpak vinyl lettering for my blank keycaps before. Not dissing your work, but this works pretty nicely. Especially on the side of the caps so you don't have to worry about them rubbing off of the top.

I'm really liking this tool. My fingers are too big to comfortably hold stems by the cross while lubing or doing other things with them. This tool holds the stem very securely, and it's easy to turn around in your fingers to access different sides. Works for stabilizer inserts too. It's also handy for grabbing the little M2 screws if they fall down into the keyboard while you're building. It's a handy all-around tool but I especially like it for holding stems and stab inserts!
I got mine here:
This is a "read the description carefully, and trust nobody" switch.
Or in other words, "Mechanical Feeling" = same old rubber dome/membrane. Mecha-membrance, Mem-chanical, Mechanical feel, it's all just the same old shit in a "flashy" new case and maybe with a little noise maker.
You have this one, I'm guessing.
Top 4 are mechanical (M0110 Vintage T Alps, M0116 Alps, ADB Monterey, AEK2 Alps) , rest are rubber domes with the bottom Apple Aluminum being Scissor Switch.
Relevant name is relevant. I honestly expected it to be some super-spammy commercial site. It's actually a completely free typing education site. It seems to be the most recommended typing tutor site out there right now.
If you want your lettering to actually last, I suggest you use a clear acrylic coating spray.
Example (note the different finishes; glossy, matte, etc.): https://www.amazon.com/Krylon-K01303A07-Crystal-Acrylic-Coating/dp/B001K65K26
Just a heads up guys these are available on Amazon with prime for 89.99. That's 5 extra dollars for two day shipping if you don't want to wait a month for it to ship from massdrop.
That same keyboard is $50 on Amazon, or you can get an even cheaper MechanicalEagle one that's also hot-swappable (though I'm pretty sure these ones only work with Outemu switches)
Just buy the keyboard on Amazon, unless you're fine waiting several months just to save $10. Don't ever use Massdrop to get anything that can be bought somewhere else, especially keyboards. I only recommend Massdrop for keycap sets that you can't get elsewhere. That listed MSRP is absolute bullshit.
ill just leave this here

Here are some more pics of the finished product album This has been a really fun project for me and has really opened doors to custom pcb manufacturing and experimenting with different materials for keyboard building. The keypad is actually very simple to build and I may want to make some for more people. I am hesitant though because the fit and finish (or lack of) may not be desirable for people considering this was made using only hand tools. Please leave thought ore tips on how I could improve this keypad in the comments. Edit: I want to give full disclosure and say that I did not design these pcbs and were created by u/di0ib of 40 percent club and the designs are distributed under the created commons license here this May limit my ability to run a group buy buy I am looking in to that. If anyone has a way to contact u/di0ib please tell me because it seems their Reddit is dead.
That is! Somehow I managed to snag the top picture in the article and never get mentioned once. But Mike Fahey did a wonderful writeup on the Clueboard recently, so it's not like I'm not getting my fair share of press. :)
Why not just install homebrew and then
brew cask install karabiner-elements, and then do the "Disable the built-in keyboard" step?

In general, the mainstream gaming keyboards from Logitech, Corsair, and Razer are disliked because they offer poor value. You can almost certainly get a more feature packed and/or better built board for a similar price.
Talking specifically about the G Pro, the biggest disadvantage is that they're incompatible with aftermarket caps and the stock caps are a cheap, thin abs. Did you accidentally lose or break one? You'll have to reach out to Logitech and hope they offer replacements.
The board is currently at an all time low of $94 on Amazon right now. You can pick up a this board for $60. You can use it wireless and gain more of an ergonomic advantage due to the smaller size vs. the G Pro. You can setup an identical rgb profile on it but it'll take you slightly longer to do so. Are you going to change your lighting profile often enough to where the extra five minutes will be a hindrance? On the flip side, you can just go and get completely custom printed keycaps for the board instead of relying on lighting. You can, alternatively, get one of the myriad custom sets already out there if you so choose.
As for the g-shift, just download autohotkey and attach some hotkey modifiers to whatever keyboard keys you want. Now you can have ten g-shift keys and program 120 different functions. The only extra step required is rebinding the new macros in the game options which is what you have to do with the g-shift anyway.
I want to point out that this doesn't apply to Logitech's mice which I consider to be some of the best you can get. I consider my G700 to be one of the best mice ever made. The quality of Logitech's mice has no bearing on the value of their keyboards.
Just received my high profile 60% case and thought I'd take some photos. Overall I'm very happy with the case and would definitely recommend it to anyone considering an affordable high profile 60% case
"Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a type of mental illness. People with OCD can have either obsessive thoughts and urges or compulsive, repetitive behaviors. Some have both obsessions and compulsions.
OCD isn’t about habits like biting your nails or always thinking negative thoughts. The disorder can affect your job, school, and relationships and keep you from living a normal life. Your thoughts and actions are beyond your control.
An obsessive thought, for example, is to think that your family members might get hurt if they don’t put their clothing on in the exact same order every morning. A compulsive habit, on the other hand, might be to wash your hands 7 times after touching something that might be dirty. Although you may not want to think or do these things, you feel powerless to stop." Source
That's a terminal keyboard, specifically the one from a VT100. It has extremely odd switches, has 1-key rollover when used with the terminal, and doesn't have a great 'feel'. The keycaps are bitchin', but they're not going to fit anything.
If you're thinking about putting in a Teensy and getting it to work with a modern computer, it's going to be a bit more difficult than an Soarer's Converter. In the VT100, the keyboard is as much a computer as the terminal itself. There's some really weird interaction between the terminal and keyboard. See those lights above the numbers? Those are status lights for the serial connection.
If you actually want to shell out the $5 and pick this up, here's a resource for a USB adapter. It can be done, but you're going to need an old UART chip that probably ~~hasn't been manufactured in the last 15 years~~ nevermind, you can get a new pin-compatible UART chip.
It so happens that I have two of these things, with their accompanying VT100 terminals (really they're a VT100 and 103). If you're thinking about picking that up and flipping it, PM me. Even if you don't flip it, message me. I'll probably be able to dig around inside mine and get some pinouts and figure out what else is missing on that board.
Theres an older documentary called Mac Heads that explores that, its very much a thing. And its much worse now than it was when that came out.
Full Documentary (Free!) - MacHeads
>In 1985, Apple aired the commercial Macintosh the Computer for the Rest of Us offering the general public the possibility of using computers in their homes for the first time. MacHeads follows the story of the Macintosh community and its unconditional devotion to Apple Inc. For them the Mac was not just a machine - it came with a social movement, a whole community which believed they were going to change the world. MacHeads is a feature length documentary that explores the loyalty of Apple Fanatics and their obsession. The film takes an in-depth examination of just what makes the Mac, the iPhone, and Apple's other products seem like cultural phenomena rather than just consumer electronics.
I transitioned from a dual 2560x1440 setup to this single 1080p setup and I'm actually probably more productive now that I have to rely on the keyboard so much for keybindings and shortcuts. I started tracking my button presses using WhatPulse and I'm nearing 1M on this board already on this laptop (2 months old or so).
I do miss having a second screen, but this laptop does have dual display ports and an HDMI out so it's doable.
Theoretically all you need to fully describe a spring is bottom out force and spring constant. I've also been wanting this for like a year. The first shop that opens up that actually describes their switches instead of just throwing up one number is gonna get a lot of business from me.
In the meantime, you can use haata's plotly to get an idea of springs in existing switches
I like these which are sold under other brands as well. The cables are not as pretty or fancy as the custom ones, but they're decent.
After a whole bunch of times being bad with uploading a title. Figured some people may be interested.
Been talking with iKBC and got $15 off the New Poker II on Amazon. Use this code if you're interested: DCIKBC17
Code will run until the 1st of October. Use it if you're interested.
> a secondary layer would activate to allow a mirrored right-hand side of the keyboard
Like a Matias Half Keyboard? It's crazy expensive but it has the single best review ever posted on Amazon (search for "A great bard").
You will need to try to find an aftermarket keyset that is compatible with the board due to the nonstandard bottom row. I know Corsair sells DoubleShot PBT caps on Amazon, but they are a little overpriced. Vortex has a set here that I know for certain is compatible, as I used to have a K70 and that is what I used.
