I have a white Filco 104 with browns. After trying just about everything, I went back to the Filco. It's solid, it looks nice, and it puts letters on the screen. I couldn't ask for anything more. There really hasn't been anything particularly new or interesting in quite some time, so I've gotten a l...

Great! How 'bout you? I've been a little quiet on the keyboard scene these days. I'm long gone from GH, and I mainly lurk around here. So many knowledgeable folks here that I really don't feel compelled to post much. It's good to see you back in the scene.

One of my employees has an Evoluent. I tried it, but I didn't like the completely vertical feel. When I lay my hand on the desk, it's half way between horizontal and vertical. Because of this, I prefer the MS Natural [Bunch of Other Shit] 6000/7000. Unfortunately, they are OOP. I bought up a bunch o...

I might have misinterpreted your design but couldn't there be a minor issue if you want to tap the key really fast? Ergo if the ball haven't dropped all the way (no pun intended), you wouldn't get the same tactile feedback? Although, that might not be a big issue.. :roll: I believe that was the hys...

I was hungry. Not anymore.

I would imagine that the switches might be fairly large, but I might have some mental bias from your pic.

Looks like an interesting idea. Careful spring placement would be key to ensure you don't have any off-axis force. In other words, having the spring to the side may push the slider in a non-vertical manner.

Swipe and SwiftKey are better. I found that on my Galaxy Nexus that Jelly Bean does a great job of predictive text.

If it is, I'm glad it's not crazy gaudy like some of their other designs.

That's not to say it's anything like a Filco, however.

I believe ABS (due to being doubleshots), nothing fancy there, but the shape is what makes them so grippy. (And, I find that shiny ABS actually does have quite a bit of friction, too - I find that I slide around on a laptop keyboard too much until it starts to go shiny.) Kinda like racing slicks. I...

Easy. Matias might beg to differ.

I thought Topre could activate without the spring, it was mostly there for 'Feeling of oneness with cup rubber'? no, that's what the cup rubber is for. Lawl. Topres definitely need the spring.

To me, the competition would be between Cherry, ALPS (compatibles) and BS; the switches still in production. Topres I don't really consider to be mechanical in the same sense (perhaps in a more general sense, sure, but not in the same way the others are). In the end, I agree with Icarium that the te...

What is the resistance on the Acer switches? Is it similar to Cherry blues or browns? I would ask you to measure it with a particular method, but such talk is not condoned by the moderators.

I loved the uniqueness of the HHKB and the build quality of the HHKB and Realforces, but in the end, Topre switches weren't for me, but YMMV, of course. The HHKB layout is the best I have seen in keyboards of similar sizes, however.
