Re: Linear switch for autoimmune arthritis: light or heavy?

Is there a reason to go this route over Matias Linears or Gateron Clears with o-rings etc. if the 30g Topres are almost linear anyway? You said you already have a Topre keyboard. Then it's a matter of swapping the domes/sheets. As for the knockoffs like Plum etc., I've never tried them so can't spe...

Re: Linear switch for autoimmune arthritis: light or heavy?

What about 30g Topre? Or even the cheap replacement sheets from Korea? It's substantially softer than 45g and in fact almost linear.

Re: daskeyboard product management

Das Keyboard was originally advertised to typists and I can get onboard with that for the most part: so, make an ergonomic keyboard. Okay, that might not have the mass appeal, but there's certainly a big demand for something like Microsoft Natural, which has been a mainstream success too. On technic...

Re: SafeType keyboard review (seriously, what the hell)

Probably the stupidest aspect of this keyboard, and Chyros doesn't mention it (I think), is that the vertical parts are at a fixed distance and in parallel… and you can't change it… and if you could change it, the mirrors would be even more useless. BTW the note about it being only black, while the ...

Re: Input Club Beamspring-like? new board

'Scratchiness' is a result of unevenness typically in the stem of 'linear MX switches'. It's visible in measurements like these (though I've seen comparisons of different generations of MX switches as well). Velocity might matter in more complex types of switches, but it's not impossible to measure ...

Re: Input Club Beamspring-like? new board

Force curve is just part of the story. The force curve on modern linear MX switches is the same as vintage MX, but they feel so much scratchier you can’t believe it side-by-side. That's recorded in the force curve, if the measuring device is set up accordingly. Then there’s things like materials an...
