Sculptured SA, or uniform SA?

I like uniform SA, but haven't got to grips with sculptured SA yet.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I don't get all this hate for thin keycaps. I have a 11800 with thin lasered pbt, and think its pretty good (probably the cherry profile and pbt aspects of it). I think that dsa looks oddly deformed, but it supports nonstandard layouts, so I have some respect for it. I really don't understand the disinterest in dcs and g20 (particularly g20 because it seems like it offers a lot at its price point).

It doesn't seem that many people have tried G20.

I generally hate all keycaps. Keycaps are for poofs. Real men touchtype on stems. Non-functional artisans are awesome, I use them for the ESC key ... escape is for cowards anyways, real men go frontal assault.

Honestly, having jumped back into WoW, I had a much less painful time on DSA than on SA.  The extra height while key-mashing the number row was noticeable in extra forearm pain with SA that wasn't there on DSA or Cherry/GMK.

Maybe I don't like the keyboard which press hard.. That maybe related to switch but keycap is important too. Each time   when I click the laptop keyboard,my finger never feel good. Maybe that is because the keyboard of my company is good  or press light.

I like uniform SA, but haven't got to grips with sculptured SA yet.

^ This, I also like uniform SA but find the sculpted SA too "sculpted".

Oddly enough even though I like uniform SA but I'm not a big fan on DSA.

I also don't like Cherry Profile.  So I'm definitely in the minority.

I just hate all spherical profiles.

Cylindrical is so much better.

IMO, some profile works better on specific switches. Like lower profile caps are best for heavier switches which lessens the key travel. But thats just me.

My daily driver has gateron browns and with oem caps, and i have mx blues with dsa. I dont like using my dsa caps on lighter switches i.e. Browns and reds

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.


I'd say that most artisan's key caps are overrated, I do not need them, I do not like them, deal with it ladies.
