Why is anything unfair? I specifically recorded that keyboard to compare PCB mount with plate mount. What I was trying to say is that it's not accurate to compare the noise of MX Clear on a G80 between any other switch mounted on a plate. Sorry to have expressed myself so badly :oops: In your inten...

Nice work Daniel ! :o I confirm from my tests that the Matias quiet are really quiet because of the landing and "uping" pads in this design. To have a G80-3000 too, it's a loud keyboard even with PBT caps : the plastic case should act like a resonance chamber. It's not fair to compare since plate-mo...

Everytime I boot up my pc I have to use another keyboard since my cpu fan boots up with little speed and I need to press f1. My tipro isn't recognized at that point. So that is quite annoying. Some keyboard have a recognition problem during POST. I experienced that on some computers and keyboards c...

Where I'm from, goods manufactured in the US are usually (not always!) considered crap quality, as if the motto were "Cheat as much as possible, keep costs down!".

Yes for some kind of games, trackball is a bit hard to use but it's not impossible. I use it for turn based, action platform, even some first person view as FPS or Dogfight. IMHO It's less precise than a mouse and it's more suitable for reflexion games than action. If you play RTS, you should consid...

Wow, lots of great news here !

If you need some small design to try your devices, I still have mine (two halves mirrored) but I really need to test an option in the design with a modular plate to be sure so it should start with an acrylic plate.

Speaking of beep, if you disable it in changeme it occurs only when the rollover is over its point of keystrokes (should be 4KRO boards) and that depends on every board : I have one which beeps frequently, the other very rarely.

Perfectly received, nice packing (seems to be the original, isn't it ?)
The 1 and 2 black on white keys are not MX mount but it doesn't matter because the green blank 2u in #3 (backspace) is not a classic 3mounts but a POS with an extra centered mount :D

Nice initiative ! To sort layouts, you can add a language selection box for German requests (and others to come). Instead of making a lot of categories, you can just add a few lines about the layout selected. It should avoid an infinite list. I see that tool very useful for the promotion of all ergo...
