Just assembled my KBD8X.
Zealio 67g
Dolch set from kbdfans.
Thanks to Signature for the awesome soldering job.
Loving this thing so far. Switches are still a tiny bit light for my tastes, but I'm typing much faster on it so I guess they're working for me.

I sold my Type S about a year ago and I can't believe how much I missed that keyboard. Well, got one in the mail a few days ago so the answer is:

HHKB Pro II Type S

...and man, I am happy to have one of these again. I have a Realforce 87U 55 gram and a regular HHKB but the Type S is my endgame, I guess. They say you can't choose who you fall in love with and I guess keyboards can be like that, as well.

kinesis advantage. just got it yesterday. this is my first day using it. i debated getting one for months. it's fun. and i realize it'll take time to get used to. but i'm coming from an hhkb and have my doubts as to whether it'll be better. i can deal with the pad printing eventually wearing off, but i can see the pcb through the gaps between the thumb keys. i hope i never spill anything on these thumb keys. and even if i don't, there's bound to be dust and food buildup down there over the years

oh, also there's less room for my mouse, which i feared would be a dealbreaker, but it isn't that bad, so i'm glad i actually tried it. i value as much mouse space as i can get for gaming

oh, and it's loud. it doesn't matter if i avoid bottoming out. i can hear the ring of each key through the housing.

welp! that didn't last long. i ain't gonna put up with that clanging sound every time i release a key. it's boxed up and ready to be returned

Tokyo60 v1 HHKB-like (built from DIY kit):



PCB: Hot-swappable for Cherry mx and clone switches in HHKB layout. Completely programmable via QMK.
Switches: Zeal PC Zilent blue 67g
Alpha caps: Imsto black on blue dye-sub PBT
Mods: Imsto blank black PBT
Fn key: Originative blank yellow PBT
Case: Anodized CNC aluminum
Connector: mini-USB

The keyboard is completely programmable via QMK firmware (but I do not need this feature, because the default layout is HHKB -- my favorite).

The Zilent switches are tactile, not clicky. They are extremely quiet (internally damped upstroke and downstroke) but not mushy. They feel very lightweight -- 67g is the bottom-out force, not the activation force. Usually, I do not like Cherry mx or clones, but I like the Zilent 67g switches.

Working at home this week, recovering from surgery, and have been using my trusty Redscarf II+ ver. B.  I really like this board, as the function keys on the left side make it great for gaming, while still being compact.

This very moment, at work:
Dell AT101W w/ Black ALPS, I lubed and tuned all the leafs myself (first lube and tune I ever did, and while it took forever, the results are amazing)
keeping my eye out for something tossed out with cherry switches for modification, since I can't bring in my own peripherals, but no one seems to care if I desolder what's there and put something new in its place.

At Home:
GMMK (gross keeb, but hot swappable and I need to try all the things... lubed the stabs, MAXKEY SA Dolch caps), daily drove Zaeliostotles (78g) for a week, and now Zilents (78g)... loved both so far.
iKBC MF108V2 w/cherry reds, where I learned I don't think I like linear switches, and am about to holetite mod it, and change the usb port to usb-c. I believe this will be what I want in a keeb after all that.
