I've been typing on nothing but Devlin Q-Series for months, I'm really craving more flat keysets.

Man, I do like that there's a 60% version now, but that bottom row is gonna be a tough sell.
Changing the ALT modifier to a 1 unit size key makes it unfeasible for gaming.

I cannot say why, as I am unfortunately no longer very interested in keyboard science due to a lack of time.
But I can say that I compared the sound of my silent red space bar with and without the clip and found the sound more pleasant with the clip.

[...]the only "issue" on mx boards is the sound of the space bar and other stabilized keys but with some modification those keys are very silent too. See the little translucent plastic bit under the space bar? That's a QMX Clip, designed to make PCB-mounted switches silent. It's far less amazing th...

It's intentionally broken.
If you consider this broken, consider the shape of the human thumb broken. :D

(or, has others have already realized, regular keyboard design does not follow human ergonomics)

For now I'll use the board to test 60% layouts so that I'm prepared for the case by Plastikschnittstelle. In future this board may purpose as a travel board. The silent blacks are really smooth and they are even more silent than expected, a perfect board for open workspaces. I've used nothing but s...

I've only done screw mods but I know that idollar also recommends screwmodding over boltmodding. I'd say screwmod is perfectly fine unless you need to open the assembly many times*. Then, the threads in the barrel plate may wear out. *Which, incidentally, is something you might do a few times if you...

Well, typing experience really comes down to your preference. The Anne Pro has the benefit of being lighter but the Nano75 isn't just heavier but feels quite substantial, and high quality. Anne Pro comes with a thin plastic case which cannot be changed as the holes do not match other 60% cases. If y...

Romer-G might be an okay switch, but on all variations I've tried it was always terribly implemented. Wobbly and cheap plates or even no plates at all seem to be Logitech's thing. Don't believe the hype, they build good mice but not good keyboards in my opinion. The keywalker, while it has an OK lay...

I am on your side, davkol, but Elrick will bring up the (valid!) counter-argument that computers nowadays have way more functions than that old typewriter did.

Lovely board, friend.

How did the sound change compared to the Q-Series keycaps? I'm considering getting a set just for the sound.
