Re: Unpopular opinions thread

Sure, but opinions, unpopular or otherwise, need to be based on facts. And... Well, would you argue the following are not IBM facts? […] built-in flaws like broken rivets or pulverized foam […] I would say the flaws are due to the passage of time rather then a built in flaw, had the boards not work...

Re: Unpopular opinions thread

No one even bothers with any cherries other than MX for a reason, and the only reason anyone still bothers with them is because of their use in POS stuff (a lot of modern customs can still be described that way as it happens) I haven’t seen people care about alps integrated dome or skcc, alps buckl...

Re: Unpopular opinions thread

The trouble with said Cherry boards, though, is those damn MX switches. The caps are nice, and the reliability is superb, but the meh is always in there, too. This is a pointless argument since it goes back and forth on preferences but I do wanna say that I’ve tried pretty much every alps switch (n...

Re: Unpopular opinions thread

Another unpopular opinion: DT members love vintage IBM keyboards not in spite, but because of their poor quality. After all, everybody can buy a vintage Cherry keyboard which will work for decades, but it takes experts to bring the average vintage IBM keyboard back to functioning correctly, as show...

Mouse buttons should be quiet
The only reason I use a zowie with clicky buttons is that most silent click mice are garbage on the sensor department . I want to replace the buttons if I ever get an opportunity

Re: Unpopular opinions thread

I enjoy new games way more than old games , I tried to play so many old (popular) Nintendo games and I gave up each time because the new ones are just made better. Pretty much the only truely old game I like is doom , most other things don't feel worth playing anymore in modern times.

Re: Four interesting Alps switches

How is the key feel? I can't imagine that sliding contacts would be any good. They feel okay . But the travel is so short on these that most of the scratchiness doesn't have a chance to come out. So you're the one who beat me in getting those pop. Glad to see they went to someone who is documenting...

Re: let's enjoy the summer coolness in the kailh box stem.

Transparent switches sound different? I suppose they would, if it’s a different material. I’ve never had a board of them to know. Not drawn to REAL SUBTLE RAINBOW BACKLIGHTING or Matias switches, either. Nixdorf is my only transparent desire. Oddly, milky tops like nixdorf and gateron milky sound b...

Computer cases should be as unassuming and sleek as possible, no angles, no windows, no RGB LEDS , pretty much just a square with ports on it.
Again, that's not an unpopular opinion — just yet another one that gets drowned in all the yelling from people in the other camp.
