****ing seriously. Get with G20 and stop being a waste of everyone's time.

Most underrated comment.

Everyone has an opinion. I personally agree, SA looks pretty but typing on it blows. But that's my opinion. o p i n i o n.

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.

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:

Oh my goodness hahaha

G20's alright, but then I discovered I could plug my laptop into my PC and use that keyboard. Endgame achieved.

Can people please stop. I mean just fkn stop.

Going into every thread about a keyset "why not SA?" "Can you do it in SA"

SA ****ing blows.

Just like every keyboard now, if it isn't 65% everyone begs for the maker to change to 65%. I think we've made enough 65s let's go back to making cool 60% boards ;_;

The only thing wrong with SA is they're not tall and spherical ENOUGH.

I agree with the not spherical enough part, but I think they are plenty tall enough.
