Re: Keyboard Discussion thread of #!

Depends on the hardware, if it runs Intel Haswell processors probably not.

Anyone want to make a tenkeyless keyboard*?
*It's probably cheaper to buy your dream keyboard than make it!

Re: Keyboard Discussion thread of #!

Well I reached 140 again... but at that speed, the MX Browns lose "feedback" - a bit like typing on clouds. sad

As Quickfires aren't exactly cheap, how about a regular Cherry?

^ You sure you don't want to get a blank keyboard?  ]:D

according to WASD Keyboard's custom layout guide, you could make a latam layout keyboard! unless latam is the same as the spanish layout, I'm not sure. 8o

Re: Keyboard Discussion thread of #!

^No they are different.  I have a "latam" keyboard now, a 14 year old MS Internet Keyboard Pro...
My_Keyboard_2.jpg
One difference I know about is to the left or the [1] key I have a degree symbol - ° - the Spanish keyboard has little line under it: º  For me that's [Alt Gr]+[Shift]+m.

Here's what my keyboard can do, I'm not a touch typist - so a different layout would really mess me up.

Re: Keyboard Discussion thread of #!

^ I can try to whip up a custom layout similar to that if you want  8o

it would be good for me to learn how to use inkscape, Also would you prefer a tenkeyless or do you want the numpad?

taking things off topic a little: I've seen at least a million of threads like these. And I'm tempted to make a fix thread on how to fix that, should I make it in the tips, tricks, and scripts section?

I already have a blank keyboard.  big_smile  Post #6 right here.  What I was looking for was a mechanical keyboard with a "latam" layout.  They don't sell them here anymore - just Spanish keyboards which is very strange.  I have a couple of really cheap, lighter than feathers, "Spanish" keyboards, one is Genius the other Sentey.  they are "horrible" to use ... stayed out of the boxes for all of 5-10 minutes each I think.

I honestly would imagine though that since your keyboard is an ISO layout, if you we're to get a blank ISO keyboard from wasd, it would the same way, unless I'm missing something.  :8

Re: Keyboard Discussion thread of #!

^  Trust me I was only on a fact finding mission here.
Problems with customs and exorbitant exchange rates for overseas credit card use and a minimum markup of ±100% means I'm looking a ±3000 pesos for a US $150 keyboard.

Exchange rate is ±8.40 at the moment = 1260.00 pesos plus markup: 2520
Except the card rate is 11.367 for an end of 3410.10 pesos

Re: Keyboard Discussion thread of #!

Ew who would put a touch screen on a keyboard? wait... MicroS would.  roll

Another thing you could do is just pick up any ol' ISO keyboard and get some custom keycaps for it  big_smile  8o
Because I'm sure you can pick up a mechanical for cheaper than that locally 8o

Yep.. when I searched for "Ducky blue", I got this yikes

"This is not the actual book cover." big_smile

Ducky MX blue seems expensive around here, about 100-150 euros. But looking at some Cherry reviews you get what you pay for. (though i've seen many complaints on 170+ euro DAS keyboards as well)

Hey don't blame me, I was just doing a comparison thing here.  Those 'touch screens' are pretty radical ... but that board isn't MS - unless MS makes Razer boards.

IF (when) this old thing dies if I haven't found a good one I like I still have those two cheap Spanish boards that came free ... use one of those with a "es" & "latam" switcher until I get another good one.  Also note that this layout is 105 keys.

Someday I should plug one of those in, and with the Spanish setting make a chart like I did for this board, and find it's hidden features.  Who would have guessed that:

  • [Alt Gr]+[^] (release them) + 7 = ⁷ or

  • [Alt Gr]+[Shift]+7 = ⅞

Not that they are used every day but nice to know they are there.

So I could be: §€©ŧø®¹¹   lol

Thanks for the review links, interesting read.

Re: Keyboard Discussion thread of #!

Typewriter fans! this might be of interest to you! tongue

Already own a typewriter?  :8  8o

I don't think any mechanical keyboard can match the tactile feedback of the typewriter!  8o
Almost makes me want to go to the thrift store and see if I can get one!

Re: Keyboard Discussion thread of #!

Don't really actually use my keyboard for much more than forums and email; functional rubber dome keyboard is functional. O:)

EDIT to add:  I understand that, for coders, transcribers, and other people for whom high WPM means more $$, a mechanical keyboard is a worthwhile investment.  For me, it would be a luxury.  I may invest in one some day, but it's low on my list of priorities.

Cherry G80-3000LSCLXX-2 <- with blues, great if you're on a budget and you like the clicky feedback.
But i must say it's very loud if you bottom out. *Phlwack!*, not pleasant on the ears.
