Matias Quiet Pro
« on: Tue, 22 January 2013, 11:01:30 »
Recently was able to crack open a Matias and take an in depth peek.  Lots of pictures and a generally favorable outcome.  Read if you have the time, and feedback is appreciated.

Typing on an Alps switch is vastly different from a Cherry MX in that the actuation happens at entirely different times.  At first an Alps switch is resistant, the folded spring-steel offering a resistance 60cN+/-5cN, but gives way to a swift bottom-out.  My hands learned this type of actuation much more quickly than other keyboard switches to which I am accustom...

Nice article.

When I get around to one of these, I will want to hear the clicks, but I'm sure that the quiet one is appreciated in the office environment.
For the first time, the United States has been demoted to the status of "backsliding" democracy by a major global watchdog of such things. The International IDEA think tank made the change in its newest report, citing "declines in civil liberties" and other factors. The United States now joins troubled inching-towards-autocracy nations like Hungary and Poland which, notably, have recently been celebrated by far-right pundits as potential models of what this nation should become.
We are still a democracy, but the things that make us a democracy are themselves under attack. International IDEA is blunt in pinning the blame where it belongs, calling Donald Trump's attacks on the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election "a historic turning point." The Guardian quotes International IDEA Secretary General Kevin Casas-Zamora as he notes that "the increasing tendency to contest credible election results, the efforts to suppress participation (in elections), and the runaway polarization" are among the "most concerning developments," and that Trump's attempted nullification of the election with false claims of fraud was soon replicated, in different ways, in places as diverse as Myanmar, Peru and Israel."

Appreciate the kind words.  The article was a little rushed, and I keep finding things I want to change D:

Nice writeup! Why did you split the article up into separate pages? I've been conditioned into not even giving those type of articles a chance due to the ad-spam. Yet yours has no ad spam.

Articles are often split into pages to reduce page load-times, but really that is a decision of the owner of the website.  I have little control of how my articles are presented other than the content.  Formatting is up to editors and admin.

Feels a lot like cherry clears to me.  Better bottom out though.

+1, especially considering that each page consists of only a couple of paragraphs of text.

How do you suggest I fix this?  Please read post #4

Combine the pages into fewer pages...

I removed a number of posts because proving a point about how rwlabs.com works is not a fruitful endeavor.

Hopefully you enjoyed the writing of the article.  This should sum up my difficulties with formatting of articles. 

Until ownership changes or editing policy of the website changes I will be unable to address any posts concerning the formatting of my articles.  For that I apologize.

It was worth reading, regardless of the number of pages the website owners used to publish it.

Are you able to access the website www.rwlabs.com ?  The article should still be on the front page.

seems like I can open it now. The only problem I see with this board is even though keycaps are ABS lasered legends, they still tend to wear off. There is no GB for ALPS keycaps, not everysince I joined GH...

Nice article, this actually had me sold on the Quiet Pro.

Initially I was debating to get the Tactile Pro or the Quiet Pro.  Since the Tactile Pro feels more crisp.  But I end up going with the Quiet Pro in the end and didn't regret it.

It's one of those keyboard that initially felt a bit meh but then it quickly grows on you after  :D
