I prefer black weighting for linears but IMO the box red or black are the best value linears. Theres plenty of better stuff like opticals, hall effect, hybrids, etc but some lube(not even needed) and box red/black in a plain 60 or maybe a gmmk is a good value.

I've been on a decent notebook for a few years. Now I've built a pc and someone gave me a keyboard. For my surprise, I can't press too many keys at once. I'm used to sprinting and jumping on fps and now I'm having issues pressing shift and space at the same time and it's annoying.

What's a good keyboard that allows me to do so, mechanical or not?

There are quite a lot of NKRO keyboards, in different price ranges too. For instance this Masterkeys Pro S I use cost me 100 euromonies and does have n-key rollover. You can of course go cheaper with chinese keyboards, but on those the your mileage may vary with NKRO.

These are my shitty boards I hate all of them except the fc660c and some times the hhkb.
>>67994056
I really want a set of these.
Big keycaps have a certain effect on the sound of the keyboard but I've yet to buy a maxkey set because of how many people say that SA isn't actually nice to type on.
Seems that MT3 has that same sound but is good to type on.
Take good care of that set, I imagine it being the kind of thing that will be nearly impossible to get in 10 years.

I've been using an SA set for years before getting the dev/tty set, and MT3 profile is much better imo. It makes SA caps feel flat in comparison. Maybe if I had a decent mic I'd record how these sound with box navies.

Using different keyboards will teach you to type differently.
Initially I had used a mx red board on which I slammed each key into the chassis so hard you could hear it three rooms away.
I went through a bunch of switches, even clears, I bottomed out the clears the same way.
After using topre for about a month I started not bottoming anything out because my fingers had been so trained from the topre tacility.
You can definitely change the way you type for the better. MX clears are pretty enjoyable to use when you don't bottom them out but IMO they really need lighter springs and lube to be worth a shit.

Are you guys into older boards like that? I've been curious about what models to keep an eye out for on ebay to get a good deal on a good alps switch that I can use on my computer.
Every model I've ever checked out was grossly over priced and not even the very best alps.

>> No.68005117

>>68005073
The days of getting old boards with blue, or some other lauded, alps switch for real cheap are pretty much gone. The prices for these boards has shot up recently due to what I can only guess is increased exposure from youtube reviews & whatnot. Hell chyros even says that after making the vid about getting a cheap gaming board by getting an at101w, the prices for it shot up dramatically.

Hello guys, my first post here, so let's hope this goes well. The Logitech K120 is the best keyboard I have ever tried. It only cost me 8£ brand new. Why is it good you ask? I shall tell you.

Well, first of all: this keyboard is from Logitech, which is undoubtedly the best keyboard manufacturer today. It is a rather common keyboard, yes; but because it is a Logitech, somehow it doesn't feel cheap. It's like the brand itself makes a crappy keyboard turn into a great one. I don't know, Logitech has always made me feel comfortable with cheaper products. The keys are superbly well distributed, and your fingers won't touch the surrounding keys like some other ones I've tried. The keys are also not very soft, nor very hard to press down on. You know, this keyboard makes it just right, so that you can actually take advantage of the impulse that the rebounding keys give you.

This keyboard makes you feel like gravity is actually working WITH you, rather that against you.

Another thing I absolutely love about it, is the space bar. It is just the right size, and not too small or too big like on some other crappy keyboards from other manufacturers. The space bar is the most balanced key in the whole keyboard, it sits right at the center, and you can actually use it without looking at the keyboard. I mean, that's just brilliant design. It's an USB keyboard. This makes it perfect for use with modern computers, and even laptops and netbooks. No more using that old crappy PS/2 port. We're in 2018, people. I could be here all day, but in the end, I just wanted to share with you my experience with this marvelous piece of peripheral engineering. I recommend this keyboard to anyone.
