I always see MX style switches in these threads and rarely alps. I currently have some oranges and greens and I love them. Im putting together an alps64 build with aek keycaps and an aluminum case with oranges.

The problem with them is that keycap options are limited and im envious of the selection of mx users. Another problem is the scarcity and price of the switches. Cleaning them is a bitch too as neglected ancient boards ruin the switches.

they're okay switches. The problem is that if you want a nice smooth linear switch you'd have an easier time with vintage blacks which are just as smooth as the ALPs linears. Their tactiles are either hit or miss with some garbage ones like blacks and other ones that completely blow every other switch away like browns or oranges. Their clicky switches are nice, but they're less tactile then some of their tactile switches which I find weird and personally after trying out orange alps then using the less tactile blue alps it just doesn't feel right.

PBT shine isn't as bad as ABS shine since PBT is a harder plastic then ABS. It still feels nasty tho.

The only clicky alps I have tried is white and I did not like it at all. I totally agree with you on the black switches as they are absolute trash. It seems like vintage black is pretty expensive though, how do they compare to new mx blacks and alps green?

My Laser Alt came in today with Hako Trues. I like it so far. I kind of don't want to use it since it has ABS caps though.
I also don't know if I will keep these Trues since I wanted to use this board for gaming and I don't think I will like them for that.

>> No.68689579

I really don't see it? I mean the one that even looks closed to shined is the S key, but I can't tell if it is the lighting or not.

Honestly get a ibm model m, they are sturdier, unicomp has been lax on their tooling lately.

>> No.68689588

Hold onto it and then resell it. This general is full of brainlets not reselling ABS keycap sets. The resell value of keyboard sets is higher than the buying price as long as the colorway is accurate to the renders and there's a decent demand for the keycap set.

Exactly why everyone should jump on GMK Carbon even though it's ABS. It's a fairly popular set that goes for higher than it costs. Sure the price will dip down initially but give it a few months and it'll go back up.

you have to buy it from a scalper then. Depending oh how he speced it you're looking to spend at least 500-1000 bucks. If you're lucky you can buy the PCB second hand for around 100-200. Or you can just wait for the next group buy and have someone else assemble it for you.

Wtf are you on you mong

1. Don't use a Teensy, a Pro Micro clone can do the same job for like $4
2. You don't have to gut your keyboard, hell you don't even have to open it if you don't want to, all you need to do is cut an ADB or S-video cable in half and solder the four wires inside to the pins on the Pro Micro that Hasu says

Yes the other option is cleaner and easier, but the DIY method costs 1/5 as much when done smartly and is not nearly as hard as you think.

Should be fine. Desoldering pump makes it a lot easier, if you don't have one already.

I thought it was from your fingers abrading and polishing the plastic, not oils.

>> No.68690802

No, the oils in your skin are slightly acidic so over time they begin to wear away the very top of the keycaps.

Is this Board any good? Its only 50 bucks for Cherry MX Brown and its not completely hideous despite being a "gaming" Keyboard.
