This seems like a touchy subject because I doubt the artists of the community, who pour so much time and effort into their work, want some loser nobody, like that guy dr_alphabet, talking **** about their work.

That being said, I really don't care much for the great Bambino's horse ...thing. Pegasus? idk.


....and i think clacks are severely over rated, which is, like, blasphemy to some people. deal with it, nerds.

These keys on the Model-F XT. The "+" key on the numpad is 3u tall, but only with 1u of usable surface area. Good think they are so moddable.

I really dislike GMK. The plastic they use in terms of thinness are not to my taste. Not really a big fan of their profile either. Clacks are definately overated but I still want one :p

If I were to list every individual cylindrical keycap by make, model, manufacturer and year, it would take all the bits on the Internet.

Can't do SA; the typing experience is POOP, but the sets look great in pictures. DSA I only like on Ortholinear boards. I will usually buy a keyset if I like the color scheme rergardless.

Cherry profile is my usual go to for anything else; the manufacturer doesn't mean that much to me.
Brownie points for any profile if it's PBT though.

  • anything "artisan" lol
  • homing keys with too pointed dots/bars
  • flat caps (ahem, Apple Aluminium)

  • thin caps (OEM/Cherry/DCS in PBT)

What if I don't hate the HHKB but just hate its layout, having used that layout throughout the 90s and was glad to be rid of it and back to ANSI?

- Non-functional Artisans

- Did I mention non-functional artisans?

Why do I hate them? Because they are useless and can't be clicked (otherwise it will broke).
But aren't all artisans non-functional? No, because unlike clacks, mummies, bros etc, I still can click on HKP or RAMA caps, among others.

Don't really care about other layouts that people use. I personally think it's great, but I get why people prefer others. I use the HHKB layout and a standard ANSI TKL daily, I do prefer the HHKB, but I get the ANSI TKL.

Aha, I think there are full of negative things right now  :)) :)), But this make sense. We always talk about what we like or want. But you can also find our what you really want by talking about something you do not like. I start this thread just wanna make our vendor or artist make out better work that belongs to a geek not merely for a computer user.

Agreed. Anything more than a few mm above the profile in design are just not aesthetically pleasing or functional.

Actually, I can't say that I like Topre.  I've yet to try one, being a guy that prefers linear switches.  I can't say I haven't been curious but have lacked the desire to drop cash on one.

The Topre is a lovely switch when properly silenced. And I say that as someone who is pretty devoted to linear switches.

Anyway, SP's caps aren't universally thin. DCS is, but SA is the exact opposite, for example.

I don't like SP caps... its too thin
Spamming much with the low post count?

Anyway, SP's caps aren't universally thin. DCS is, but SA is the exact opposite, for example.

SA is still not as thick compared to GMK, it's just that there's so much volume in the cap due to the high profile that they don't feel flimsy.

I despise keysets like TA Royal Alpha with what I guess you could just call alt legends? Not sure of the proper term, but it's usually incredibly cluttered and just doesn't look good to me.

The fact that it's usually a mix of doubleshot and dyesub/printed makes it even worse.

I do not like most artisan key caps, I have nothing against the craftsmen that invest time and effort in them; but, the value they add to a mechanical keyboard is questionable. By all means, I respect people that invest money in them and collect them, they are not for everyone, though. I have seen great examples of beautiful keyboards that do not need an artisan to look awesome.

Thin ABS, DSA, and SA. I like my caps THICC and DSA profile is too low for me.

Edit: SA is too high for me.

Robots are not that bad; however, for their price I'd get more standard Cherry keys any time.
