Re: EnjoyPBT Keycaps?

This is just my opinion. But it makes no sense from my point of view to buy a keycap set with 3 times the amount of keys needed and high compatibility for all kinds of layouts. If you buy a Tai Hao keycap set you already have much higher quality keycaps than what Steelseries provided with the board...

Re: EnjoyPBT Keycaps?

Another thing with EnjoyPBT (and I guess this is relatively minor issue since I don't hear much complains about this) is their scooped homing keys tend to interfere with the switch housing when bottoming out. There's no noticeable difference in feeling or travel but you can definitely hear the extr...

Re: EnjoyPBT Keycaps?

My experience with ePBT is pretty variable. They make some nice looking sets, but *all* of my ePBT sets have had at least 1 key with a broken steam, and warping on keys greater than 1U is very common, with the right shift and spacebar tending to suffer the most from this. One of my left shifts is s...

Re: EnjoyPBT Keycaps?

Be happy with your Steelseries Apex Pro and stay away from the customized keyboard hobby, and instead spend money with your friends and family for quality time. You're absolutely right, I should. :P It was more of a problem than a hobby. I say "was", because I simply cannot afford to keep it up, no...

EnjoyPBT Keycaps?

Hello people, I'm looking for a nice set of ISO keycaps to go on my Steelseries Apex Pro. It seems GMK are ridiculously expensive and hard to get a hold of, and what I'd much prefer (Maxkeys SA), only do ANSI sets. That only really leaves me with ePBT. Can anyone tell me what they're like? How do th...

Re: Would it be possible for someone to recreate the SKCM blue alps switch?

Ok, I got replies from several manufacturers who say they will be able to do it! Durock seems to be the most likely candidate, but of course the moulds will be expensive to make. I am running an interest check to see how much demand there would be for these switches: https://forms.gle/yTruRbAyMXFCQ...

Re: Would it be possible for someone to recreate the SKCM blue alps switch?

why not alter an mx switch to feel like an alps instead to save on tooling costs. would it be possible to use an ultrasubminiature microswitch(mouse type) in a keyboard? mount it underneath the pcb so it actuates when unpressed. It wouldn't really be an Alps switch then, would it? :P I suppose it's...

It may be a good idea to message these companies too to show there is interest in such a switch. Gateron gave us the Omnipoint Ha...

Re: Would it be possible for someone to recreate the SKCM blue alps switch?

I'm going to be messaging several switch companies to see if I can find one that can recreate SKCM and the estimated cost. Then we can go from there. That would be pretty exciting. I'd love to have a modern SKCL/SKCM board without any of the hassle. I was interested in trying the Datacomp Alps, as ...

Re: Would it be possible for someone to recreate the SKCM blue alps switch?

How about a switch manufacturer instead no, I want him to do it. It took Ellipse years and tens of thousands of dollars to do "just" a Model F, which is a much more easiliy recreatable switch design. I can't imagine how much time and money it'd cost to field the research and tooling to recreate SKC...

Re: Why are alps keyboards not as popular?

My personal take on Alps is just that I can't be bothered and don't see the point. I don't see the magic with them, although I haven't exactly tried any NOS specimens so I wouldn't know. Besides, I'm starting to appreciate linear switches more. I miss my Pingmaster, but it was so uncomfortable to t...

The optoelectronic switches in the Huntsman are most likely Bloody LK Libra, which is the third-generation "Light Strike" switches.

Re: Typing Demo XL - Razer Mecha-membrane (Razer Ornata)

I'm afraid the only cure for any Razer Labelled Keyboard today, is to take it out on your steel balustrade and bash the keyboard continuously until it breaks down into smaller pieces and drops everywhere below, onto your driveway. So that later with utter contempt, you could drive over the remainin...

I've moved a lot in ten years, and it appears that I've brought them with me with every move.

Since they're so small, they pretty much anchor them...

We had these a while ago when a slice of bread went unnoticed in the back of the cupboard a while back.

These aren't the regular green blowflies that live off rotting meat or piles of shit. No, these bastards don't eat anything. They just look for a warm spot to spend the winter.
