A year on of typing on SA and I feel like I'm over it, too. The dishing of the keys is so close to being flat that I psychologically felt off about the whole typing experience after a while. I never minded that wobble too much.

The entire way to buy it and run it is forked, too.

To be fair, you have to have a very high WPM to understand the SA keysets. The feel is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical typing, most of the keystrokes will go over a typical keeb'ers head. There's also MiTo's superior designing, which is deftly woven into SA's characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from K3's cap making, for instance. The SA fans understand this stuff; they have the typing capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these keysets, to realize that they're not just "a keyset"- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike SA keysets truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the feeling of clackery in MiTo's existencial catchphrase "MiTo signing off, goodbye Geekhack," which itself is a cryptic reference to the terror that SA owners had to live in, during the "DCS time". I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Pulse's genius design unfolds itself under their fingers. What fools... how I pity them. 😂 And yes by the way, I DO have a Godspeed tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the clackers' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 WPM of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.  :rolleyes:

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.

I wonder if the SA hate is for the mere idea of high-profile spherical keycaps, or just for SA in particular.

SA isn't perfect, but it's the only high-profile spherical family available. MT3 will be out soon-ish, and it has the potential to be superior in terms of keycap shapes, but it only offers dyesub legends which limits its appeal dramatically. So I'd say there are definitely legitimate reasons to find SA or MT3 disappointing, but the only reason to hate either is if you hate high-profile sphericals as a concept.

And that's okay I suppose; I categorically dislike all cylindrical keycaps simply because they are so relentlessly prosaic and commonplace, so I can see how others might resent dislike all high-profile sphericals for being too classy and sophisticated.  :p

I specifically hate SA.

Dont think MX is a good mount for tall spherical caps.

Plus it has essentially become a meme profile.

I think that SA actually looks quite nice in pictures and renders, but after using it I really didn't like typing on high-profile caps so it probably isn't specifically SA, just high-profile caps in general.

Yeah, the wobble is definitely noticeable. Luckily, it doesn't bother me.

What do you mean SA has become a meme profile? I don't see how the definition of meme fits in this context.

Meme is a term I use to insult things as well as refer to other things. I was insulting SA by marginalizing it as a meme cap rather than a real cap.

i dislike it

the sound is cool, but i think it's too tall to type on comfortably
QFR | MJ2 TKL | "Schumiboard" | "Bulgogiboard" (Keycon 104) | MIRA SE | Weaven (MOD-M) | TGR Alice (68g vints) | MEME | Keycult No 1 (when it ships) | Southpaw Fullsize (when it ships) | I mostly use the Alice, but the Mira gets some use

My only refutation is that I find SA quite comfortable to type on. I think if SA was uncomfortable to type on then I would have discovered that by now, having used SA almost exclusively for the last two years.

For an example of a high-profile spherical keycap family that is not (as) comfortable to type on, I refer you to Topre's Hi-Pro keycap set.

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.

Esc is one of the most important keys on the board..

I'd wager that most SA haters tried their first set predisposed to disliking them, or at the very least highly skeptical. Consequently, confirmation bias combined with too little time acclimating to them led to a dismissive attitude that grew into "hate" as the profile grew in popularity around them. These are called "snap judgments", and they carry little to no rhetorical weight.

I been trying to like SA, I tried SA on and off for close to a month. I will admit Its gone from pure hatred to I can tolerate SA. Still its by no means my favorite profile. I find that it fatigues my hands far quicker then cherry profile are DSA.. That being said I really like DSA profile go figure its one of my favorites. Also I find the hollow thunk that a set of SA keys gives off bit unsettling. I continue to use my SA key's for the simple fact. I would like to get use to them at some point cause don't want to limit my self on key drops just cause of a profile.

Tried a set when i was fresh into keyboards, and used for about a month. Sold after that because the wobble threw me off. The main reason i wanted to get into keyboards was for the fact that SA even existed and caught my attention, So no predisposition of hate here. But i will give it credit for OK looks, ON CERTAIN BOARDS.

To be fair, you have to have a very high WPM to understand the SA keysets. The feel is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical typing, most of the keystrokes will go over a typical keeb'ers head. There's also MiTo's superior designing, which is deftly woven into SA's characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from K3's cap making, for instance. The SA fans understand this stuff; they have the typing capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these keysets, to realize that they're not just "a keyset"- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike SA keysets truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the feeling of clackery in MiTo's existencial catchphrase "MiTo signing off, goodbye Geekhack," which itself is a cryptic reference to the terror that SA owners had to live in, during the "DCS time". I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Pulse's genius design unfolds itself under their fingers. What fools... how I pity them. And yes by the way, I DO have a Godspeed tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the clackers' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 WPM of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.  :rolleyes:

Haha damn. Iíd like to see that godspeed tattoo.

I don't buy into keyboard meme meta, I got my first SA set just on the fact I liked the colours and used it for a fairly long time.
I recently received my Dasher/Dancer set so I'm sure that I will use them on a couple future boards I'm in GBs for just to see how they feel.

And if you're going to talk about SA, why is it always sculptured?

Why not uniform?  What's wrong with uniform?
"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 like uniform SA on 60% keyboards. I prefer fully sculptured on TKL and larger.

Maybe. But aesthetically speaking, I feel fully sculptured looks best, on any keyboard, even 60% boards.

I have everything from DSA to fully sculpted SA on my various 60% boards and I find I like the uniform SA the best. It doesn't look the best, but it feels the best to me for some reason, even more than DSA. I mean, they are both uniform in profile, but I like the tallness of the SA better I guess.

Oddly enough SA caps are what got me into this hobby, but after actually using them I found that I really only liked SA sets for their looks, so I currently only have one set myself (Chocolatier). Overall SA profile seems more like a novelty to me than something I would type on all the time like Cherry profile. I don't really notice the wobble too much myself, but like someone else already mentioned the surface area of the caps feels too small/flat to me. I keep trying to like the feel because I'm absolutely in love with the aesthetic, but I keep going back to my boards with GMK sets on them.

I like SA's aesthetics, however I do notice the hand fatigue coming from cherry's and dsa. I don't know that it deserves its popularity, it is a bummer that many of the GBs are in SA.

However, I don't type for a living(and when I have to for work, it's on a dell.), so that's probably why I'm willing to put up with it. Waiting for a GMK set I like to try that out.

I've noticed that SA sets sell more and more units each time they come up on MassDrop, and I almost never see anyone selling off their SA sets. Given the strong likelihood that an SA set will fetch more than its original GB price in the aftermarket, I can't help but wonder what this says about the profile. If it sucks so bad, why are so many people buying them and keeping them? Surely the funds they could acquire by re-selling them would be put to better use towards keycaps they would actually like and use.

Well, if you don't frequent reddit's MechMarket you probably wouldn't see them being sold, especially here on GH as very people here seem to like SA.  Over on MechMarket though, there are SA sets for sale just as often as any other profile.

Question for people who like flat profile like DSA and unsculpted SA -- are you quite tall or do you use a standing desk? The only way I can imagine actually preferring unsculpted is if you really sit/stand *over* your keyboard. If you sit with your elbows at 90 degrees or less, I can only imagine sculpted being better.

I love how SA sounds on Topre and think it looks amazing, but I don't like typing on high profile sets.

The tallness of keycaps has never been a factor when it comes to comfort or other faux ergonomic concerns for me. I've easily adapted to every type of keycap I've ever typed on and never had a "problem" with any of them, regardless of how I am sitting. The human body is extremely adaptable, and I'd venture the differences between keycap profiles are inconsequential to the adaptive capabilities of our neuromuscular system.

Question for people who like flat profile like DSA and unsculpted SA -- are you quite tall or do you use a standing desk? The only way I can imagine actually preferring unsculpted is if you really sit/stand *over* your keyboard. If you sit with your elbows at 90 degrees or less, I can only imagine sculpted being better.

I love how SA sounds on Topre and think it looks amazing, but I don't like typing on high profile sets.

Plus everyone knows AEK is the OTG

I prefer uniform profile SA over DSA.  Maybe it is the slippery feel of SA, I don't know.

I am fairly tall, but don't feel that I loom over my keyboards.

I also have the keyboard feet folded in so the keyboard sits flat on the desk.
"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've been doing that as well. I find that the combined angle of the case (without feet extended) with the sculptured keycap angle(s) of SA provides all the natural tilt I need for comfortable typing.

To be fair, you have to have a very high WPM to understand the SA keysets. The feel is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical typing, most of the keystrokes will go over a typical keeb'ers head. There's also MiTo's superior designing, which is deftly woven into SA's characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from K3's cap making, for instance. The SA fans understand this stuff; they have the typing capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these keysets, to realize that they're not just "a keyset"- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike SA keysets truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the feeling of clackery in MiTo's existencial catchphrase "MiTo signing off, goodbye Geekhack," which itself is a cryptic reference to the terror that SA owners had to live in, during the "DCS time". I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Pulse's genius design unfolds itself under their fingers. What fools... how I pity them. 😂 And yes by the way, I DO have a Godspeed tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the clackers' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 WPM of my own (preferably lower) beforehand.  :rolleyes:

Love my SA

I'd hate it if it weren't for my wooden wrist rest, but it seems most people here are using rests. What don't y'all like about it? My caps don't feel particularly wobbly. At the end of the day, my FC660C probably felt better overall, but I couldn't customize that thing like I can my WASD Code 60, so I took a little bit of a form over function hit, but I like the feel of my current keeb just fine

I like the look of SA. I do wish someone would make the same thick smooth/shiny plastic for a DCS set of the same quality. I also wish they would do something more like a "row 3" shaped full set or maybe a little less sculpted. Hitting those R1 skyscrapers are odd.

I've never actually spent any time on a G20 board so I cant say. I do like XDA though as I have pretty big hands and it seems to work well.

By far my favorite feeling set of SA caps is the Elven one that I got from senin32's groupbuy they're PBT and rounded off a bit. They're super soft feeling - I just have to work up a shine I guess.

Two years ago, I was a normal person who used a mechanical keyboard because of RSI. Seeing photos of SA caps flung me off the precipice down this rabbit hole.

Once I finally got my hands on a set, i couldnít even make it through a half day typing on them. I still think they look great though.

Am I the only one that didn't have trouble typing on SA? I was surprised that people had trouble, I understand it but I didn't fall into that. SA is probably the reason I really dove into this hobby with how they completely change how a board looks and nothing really compares to them. If a better spherical layout comes out (and actually looks pretty) then I may cross over, but till that day I am going to try and get my favorite color ways into SA lol.

So I had no issue with SA until recently.
Typing on linears: SA is fine for me. But when switching to a tactile switch; I can't stand em. Having the bump at the top of the keypress makes the wobble way worse for me and I end up double pressing way more often.

SA is probably the reason I really dove into this hobby with how they completely change how a board looks and nothing really compares to them. If a better spherical layout comes out (and actually looks pretty) then I may cross over, but till that day I am going to try and get my favorite color ways into SA lol.

SA Is a meme
You misspelled "gorgeous" sir

For general use, I like SA the best. It is comfortable for me, and looks fantastic. But for intense typing sessions, Cherry is the best imo.

SA is pretty much all I type on. I use them with MX-compatible Topre switches and I love the combination.

Sometimes I use DSA with small keyboards like my Vortex Pok3rs.

I also really like MT3 (/dev/tty), which I combine with MX-compatible Topre switches as well.

SA is tall, so it's good for taller people.

How's the tactility compare to using the stock topre keycaps? Feel isn't ruined, is it?

I think SA is fun to type on but I like XDA a lot too which is totally different. My biggest complaint about SA is that is can be harder to mix and match keys due to row height and making a vomit keeb has been tricky due to variable row height in different manufacturers. XDA is super straight-forward (the keylluminati XDA cap can go in any row) and the flat landscape makes it really easy to type on, I like the big flat surface.

To be honest I've never tried to compare. With every TMX keyboard I've ever bought, I immediately pulled off the stock caps and put on SA sets. Since I can't stand cylindrical keycaps, I would never know how they feel on Topre switches. With that in mind, I can only say that I really like the feel of Topre's tactility with SA (and MT3).
