Can you help me out /mkg/ ? Browsed most of the websites for my region and couldn't really find anything that I like.
-RGB backlit [go ahead and laugh, I just want one] -Metal frame or finish -Cherry MX keys -Programmable Keys
That's about it. Was looking to get something in white with black keys. Most of the keyboards I see with this are generally the same price if not more as mainstream brands. Is there something I'm missing? Could someone point me in the right direction?
also something with a minimalistic but distinct design. not anything gamer-y
YMD40 amj40 but from aliexpress
What's the verdict on Varmilo keycaps? Does Varmilo still produce keycaps for Leopold or did they fall out completely?
Between the Coolermaster masterkeys pro s or Ikbc mf87 which one is better? Which one should I get between the two? It’s my first mech so I just narrowed it down to these two because I can get them the fastest and they both fit what I need anyway.
IKBC MF108 checks all those boxes, just know that metal cases are expensive
literally just a bunch of faggots following new industry trends started by companies with flagging sales figures. buypigs everywhere. the only real improvement to the keyboarding experience is a split keyboard for dramatically improved ergonomic comfort.
That's a USB connector at the end of that cable so it will much likely show up as a usb hid device and work just fine. USB keyboards were defined in the very first USB specification and there's no good reason not to follow the standard scancodes beyond special keys that are normally not found on keyboards. Some of the early "internet navigator" keyboards would have a few special buttons that wouldn't just show up (like a special button for Internet Explorer) so worst case would be a key or two not working. It doesn't look like your keyboard has any special keys, though.
The only thing I would be skeptical about is it's non-standard layout - but you can probably plainly see that. It may also annoy you (or enjoy you) that it's got a mouseball instead of a numpad.
I get slightly upset that I just threw a perfectly good model F or M keyboard along with a complete IBM XT and a CGA screen in the trash years and years ago. It didn't even occur to me to look for a IBM XT/AT to PS2 converter at the time, I just thought "oh this plug doesn't fit the new PC" and off to the dump it went.
What keys is it missing? I'm having a hard time finding anything out of place
no scroll lock, but who cares no pause/break, but maybe you care no dedicated insert, but that's on the numpad no media key, but who cares no FN key, I do care about that
nvm there is a FN key i'm just blind
>houlders there's your flaw you mentioned it! shoulder range on a regular keyboard are completely fine and not generating any tension at all for the carpal effect it has to do more for the wrist elbow rather than shoulder position making it totally irrelevant to this discussion, so the only thing you have to fall back is the shoulder position not noticing that your split keyboard just doesn't give a fuck about your shoulders.
Hands inside the torso region are in a relaxing position barley generating tension on any muscle, putting your index fingers on the two shifts the shoulders get activated and you start to put load on them, that load on the long rung will hurt your back more that a fucking resting position, all past that position starts to put more and more load to muscles that should be activated for long periods of time and whats even more dangerous you are forcing sensible tendons and parts of your shoulder that are vital for a proper functioning shoulder, you actually splinting the acromion and the clavicle for a meme that no one has been able to prove a health benefit besides the one that produce split keyboard lmao.
Theres also another problem that you forget to mention all the time and it also related to the shoulders, split keyboards are much harder to adjust in the X and Y axis where on conventional keyboards you just follow the line of your desk and push it back the desired centimeters on a split you have to use a stick or something to do it and pray you don't move it by typing, in case its not balanced you are building a muscle imbalance, one shoulder will be much stronger than the other one and that's no joke, what will happen is that your spine will twist a bit over the years and pain comes later, the deformity will start at the top and generate a chain reaction where over the years a mysterious pain on a leg will appear.
there's a reason why those keyboards a not mass produced and its not because the jews.
So sad that color scheme doesnt come in korean
nope, those keycaps i was speaking actually have legends on the top part, those one are just translucent keycaps
Hopefully there's the option to turn those 2 1.5 mods into 3 1u mods.
>those one are just translucent keycaps look again they're two piece for a reason
I've literally never had any reason to use the insert key, overtype isn't even configured for most input boxes these days
literally the only useful post in this disgusting consumerist buypig thread.
but if the split doesn't help ergonomics...that just means that obsessing over your keyboard is even more worthless than i thought.
you can also use it as a substitute for ctrl + v
>on a split you have to use a stick or something to do it and pray you don't move it by typing What the actual fuck are you talking about?
>putting your index fingers on the two shifts the shoulders get activated and you start to put load on them this is bad bait. I won't even give you a (You)
lmao splitlets unrecoverable, they cant even align their keyboards in parallel to their table!!!! bhauauah
