Just got my first Mech keyboard
« on: Mon, 29 December 2014, 15:14:59 »
Wooooohoooo! Finally arrived.

It feels great! Nicer on my fingered than the rubberdome Im used to my whole life. Feels like I am pressing buttons rather than mushy clay. Can't wait to annoy my coworkers.

Annoying people with my MX blues is fun.

What board did you get?
QFR | MJ2 TKL | "Bulgogiboard" (Keycon 104) | TGR Alice | Secret TKL?

Everything you have said in the past has been false so I will keep my hope.

I agree. Statistics show that families that spend time together naked are the best kind of families. (from gta vice city VCPR couldn't help myself)

Yes, no going back to rubber dome OP, but be ready to spend a pretty penny, since you are here on GH and won't be able to help yourself.

I completely agree with this statement. Recently joining this community myself, I have spent a fair amount of money on keycaps alone.

Do the Model F.  You're on the right track :)

Your Matias is a fine place to start.  I have the similar Mini Quiet Pro and like it a lot, particularly when I need something small and portable.  But I like the feel of the ancient white Alps switches on my Northgates even better, so there's a whole world of Alps switches out there to explore.  Right now, I'm typing on Topre, and they're definitely worth a try.

+1 for the Model F. Still have yet to try Topre myself, although many people have called it a great contrast to the F's feeling.

Looks like youre off to a good start. Im also looking into a topre next but buckling springs seems to be a legit choice as well.  :thumb:

If you go BS and get a Model M, never try a Model F.  It will ruin Model Ms for you.
