Budget Gateron Brown / double-shot PBT / o-ring build
« on: Thu, 04 June 2020, 07:59:45 »
I wanted to build a keyboard that won't annoy my colleagues as much for when I finally get to go back to the office.

Starting point was a Magicforce (US layout). Everyone keeps raving about Gateron browns so I thought I'd give them a go and they feel how I remember Cherry MX Browns. So happy about that. I don't really care for backlighting but since they had it next was a set of double-shot PBTs (because everyone raves about PBT). So I got the cheapest Chinese set I could find. I had to sand off excess material from the keys but other than that they're pretty good. Last was the o-rings. I found a place selling them dirt cheap. They about 0.4mm and they do the job. The keyboard is nice to type on and is now probably the quietest keyboard I own.
