Advice on a new keyboard


Explosion-chan

Recommended Posts

So right now, I'm debating on which new mech keyboard I should buy. I have two already (one barely works) so it's more a thing of which one should I try next. Probably going to become a mech key enthusiast. Which one of these should I buy? I have not tested either Gaterons or Topres. I would like to test Topres, and I've heard that Gaterons are only slightly different from respective Cherries. I like the bluetooth option of the one, but then again I would like to try Topres more than Gaterons. I will probably eventually try both either way, but these are on massdrop deals right now, so they're in the forefront.

Just comment if you're unable to access the massdrop links. If I decide to get the Varmilo, I will probably also buy some keycaps to change.

The logitech G710+ is really amazing

Adjustable backlights on the keys and it has macros with 3 profiles

I got this for christmas

That's not really what I was asking. I wanted to decide between the two I posted. I already know what I want, pretty sure the G710 has cherries, which I already have.

Topre aren't very nice (imo), they're just rubber domed keyboards but with a tactile feel. They're also stupidly expensive for a a niche product like that.would reccomend a different keyboard than the G710 unless you are planning on using those macros for a moba or something. Something along the lines of this (http://goo.gl/iE56qr). Just because you have one Cherry MX switch doesn't mean they're all the same, try some other colors to see which one you like the most. (BTW gaterons are basically just Cherry Switches but a little bit smoother to click on because of the plastic they use)

I've already tried all cherries besides clears, which I can't find for testing. I haven't tested any topres, and I know the difference between Gateron and Cherry. Ended up getting the Varmilo with Gateron clear switches. Adding zinc keycaps, these things are gonna be feather soft actuation wise.
