Re: Custom Layouts: Japanese and German

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

I talked to Melissa and we agreed to keep Retro to SA, so we are doing something new.

As far as I understand they plan a July/August release

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.
thanks for the heads up, I'll check those out

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...
