Are you going to do another run of those pcbs?
I'm trying to buy Canoe r1 first, but I would like to buy a pcb+plate too.

Yes! We've just put a new batch into production and they will be sold as in-stock items some time next month.

Interest Checks / Re: [IC] Moment - 60% | Prototype 2, Typing Tests, Flex Test

Second prototype is great. As of now I'm aiming to launch the Cloudline project and then see if vendors would be interested in running Moment. The board sounds and feels fantastic - usually I would not feel confident tooting my own horn, but I think the latest prototype is something very special. Also pretty set on including this color when it happens; it's a dull and slightly faded shade of lavender that I think looks amazing. Will get an updated typing test out soon, but I'm very happy with it. I think if & when vendors are ready for the Moment project it could move pretty quickly towards opening, as I've pretty thoroughly tested and iterated this design over the past half year.

Hrrrrmmmmmmm........

The skits were about as funny as the modern crop of SNL skits.

The market's not sliding off too much... We were worried about crash, but it's got some support.

Can TP4 quit instead? Early retirement? New career as veggie spokesman and motivational speaker?

If only Tp4 can find a way to get payed a nickle for every time he says veggie.

Keyboards / Re: does cherry mx silent red more smoother than cherry mx red?
« Last post by polyurethane on Sun, 09 May 2021, 02:41:20 »
planning to buy leopold kb my option either mx red or silent red
which one more smoother? I've read that MX Red is known more scratchy when compared to other mx switch like blue or brown but how about silent red? and i also read that the silent read are pretty mushy and feel like membrane keyboard is it true?

TIA

Depends on how you define mushy.  Mushy to me is when the bottom isn't uniform and can move around...So Topre, for example, is a rubber dome but stability and the way the dome is form means it is a very solid bottom.  Which differs from a typical membrane keyboard.

If by mushy you mean it isn't hard like a rock, then yes, it would be mushy.  It has a slightly cushioned bottom to prevent the clacking....
i have old coolermaster rubber dome kb , which is quite stiff already and when i typing its feel muffled? like typing on stiff piano toy (idk how to describe it) but sure i dont like it

Yeah mx updated I believe only mx black,brown, red, and silver with the new hyperglides. Mx silent red is rated still of 50 mill clicks while the new glides including mx red have 100 million due to the self lubing/cleaning contacts.
the new hyperglides seem promising , why they didnt updated their silent switch? i also read they retooled they switch back then but ony several switch except mx clear and mx silent..because they're not popular? or maybe not profitable?

I have read, and experienced at least in the examples I have in both a tester and a board, that the silent variant is smoother. This may really only come down to the fact that silent red is a relatively new offering from Cherry, so the tooling used was fresh. The older one in my tester was significantly smoother to my senses but I also have a board that's probably a little newer and the difference between it and standard reds I have in other boards is much smaller ... but I have also mostly compared it against a K70 I have been using heavily for the last 7 or so years, so wear over that time must have smoothed them out. Even then, without modification, nothing MX is particularly smooth.

They do feel mushy. They don't feel like rubber domes though, since rubber domes are really more of a tactile switch due to the buckling action of the dome. Imagine the overall feel of a rubber dome but totally linear with only the feel of bottoming out. Even a cheap rubber dome is often smoother than MX too though. lol

interesting..i thought mx red much more smoother than mx blue and brown

MX blue is the smoothest, because the inner shaft doesn't bunch against the leaf spring. The white slider moves itself out of the way,  and the inner blue shaft is much smaller and only rubs against the white shaft slightly.

Take a BIG comforter, put the mxblue/ mxred keyboard under it, wear earplugs.  You'll notice that the blue is significantly smoother than the red.  The sound can be deceiving.
The way we perceive smoothness is through the vibration sensors in our fingers.  So a strong impulse in tactile feedback + click noise makes us perceive the travel as having a hitch, but in reality mx BLUE is smoother for a longer duration of the travel than the mx RED where the leaf spring is always rubbing against the central stem.


I think perceiving scratchiness to begin with is also harder with clicky switches as well, because of the tactile event. You can push linears straight down gradually and feel for any grit throughout the entirety of travel. With clickies, you've got a lot more going on to occupy your senses during the tactile event. I wonder how much of that accounts for the seemingly stark difference to me between MX brown/sand and MX clear, since the latter has a perceptible tactile bump ... and feels much smoother.

I still like MX red more than MX blue these days, even though I'm a clicky guy. Linears lend themselves well to being acceptable in spite of overall mediocrity.
thanks for sharing your experience..I've read a lot of threads and posts on geekhack and r/MK
i never had have experience with cherry so i really dont have idea how they feel like , many ppl on r/MK says bad thing about cherry such as silent red feels mushy , scratchy , and pinging which makes me hasitate to buy leopold witrh cherry switch
i like the sound of silent red ,i watched leopold typing test with silent red on youtube and the sound reminded me of silent topre which is i like it ,but do they sound like that in real life?
