Re: Are there any benefits to having a mechanical keyboard if you're not a heavy gamer or aren't a power user

I wouldn't say I'm a power user, i don't work from a computer a lot of the time and if I do it's workshop based so putting a 500$ keyboard in amongst the dust would turn my stomach. However when I do use a computer I want it to be a comfortable experience with a nice keyboard. I think of it like buy...

More specifically, with "durable" do you mean "dust-resistant" or "not likely to fail"?

Re: Modern Beamspring? - The Silo Beam Switch

I am puzzled why they compromise their design with legacy constraints like the Cherry body pattern and stem design, when the latter is identified as making the unit taller than it needs to be. It appears to be an admission that the keycap tail is wagging the dog and resulting in a lesser design. Yo...

@St0ckz: Thanks for the ring IDs. Wow, if I do say so myself, the Keyclack V2 rings appear to be rather crudely cut. Now I don't feel quite so bad about the rather extreme cost differential! On the other hand, if they work well, I suppose they don't need to look pretty. It will be interesting to se...

Re: Why can't modern Mechanical keyboard build like Northgate Omnikey?

There's more to keyboards than OEM now and from yesteryear. Custom keyboards are a direct reaction to wanting higher quality keyboards as well as wanting a certain degree of customization.
