Aww, matt3o! At least make them post in the proper subforum! 😉
fair enough.

In the meantime I made a quote for a very small plate. In aluminum without any kind of treatment it came out €60.87 shipped. It's rather steep but I'll bite the bullet and see how they work.

Re: FREE GIVEAWAY! - LaserBoost & KeyboardPlates

it's all good, but "all details" and then link to another community is pretty lame.

Do you think there will ever be a second chance to see an MT3 drop?
(I know they recently put some remains on sale but there wasn't international and modifiers kit available).
yeah I think we'll run more

I add ISO-IT every time I can (dye-sub of course)... when I get stats from massdrop there are like 4 orders from Italy and only 1 got the international kit. Less talk, more buy! :D (kidding of course)

Re: ISO users

always found ISO IT a stupid layout. I switched to ansi mainly because it's more programmer friendly, but I like the big-ass ISO enter. Maybe ansi with iso enter is the best of the two worlds.

I have other priorities right now and very limited time.

I liked the PM search too, but phpbb simply doesn't have that feature and the plugins to do that are either outdated or a mess (or both).

only thing I would suggest you is to group the F-keys in 4-key arrays for touch typing (reducing backspace/esc size)

Re: DSS anyone

BTW, there have been a short discussion somewhere of the possibility of combining DSS and SA profiles, using a different profile for different rows. I dunno if that is feasible or if the features and finishes would be too different. that would be interesting :D DSS comes only in matte top, semi-mat...

So they needed over a year from the announcement to the first actual pictures? :lol:
no, they needed over a year (actually possibly 2) from the first prototype (above) to final product.

I agree R4 is really steep, I'd like to try it in person.

Isn't it taller than DCS and Cherry profile? Those get side-printed all the time.
I think also the side-printing will be more visible on this than on SA because it is more angled.
yeah it can be done technically, just I want the side legends to be visible, but good point on the angle

So Signature Plastics announced the come back of the DSS profile more than a year ago, it seems it will be finally out in the coming months.

IMO great buys for the money are linearised black Alps or clicky (pine) white ones. Both should be well-doable for under $100.

Re: Typing Demo XL - Matias Quiet Click (Matias Mini Quiet Pro)

I have a full set of Granite on Alps that I would love to put on use, but I simply can't find decent switches (and I don't want to scavenge overpriced vintage keyboards). I tried the clicky Matias from few years ago and they are rather uninspired. Is it the same old design or did they change it?

Re: Objective reasons for using a mechanical keyboard

there are a few "objective" parameters. like linear switches with a high actuation point are generally better for gaming. not always true as many gamers still prefer browns, but still. clicky is good if you need an audible feedback, it might be useful in some applications like data entry. very light...
