Mechanical Keyboards discussion thread

Let's discuss your favorite mechanical keyboard here. Share ideas, brands, vendors, mods, custom builds, switch lubing, everything related to mechanical keyboards.

Here's a video on why you should buy a mechanical keyboard :devilish:

Here's a visual guide to choose which switch you should buy

Here's also a video for further reference

heto bagong guide from ARS technica
https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/202...qK0sk4bcpDZFIRDVbW3osIcRbQaixMv2QeG_kU74pSTgA

medyo di na updated mga yan sa dami ng lumabas ngayon na bagong switches. uso na rin mga hotswap sockets para madali mag-assemble or mag-mod.

Purchased Mechanical Keyboards:
Logitech G710+ (MX brown)
Rantopad MXX (gateron red)
Royal Kludge RK987 (red switch)+ mods [gateron milky yellow switches, tape mod, added foam sa ilalim ng pcb, blue cat PBT MA profile keycaps]

placeholder muna. lipat ko mga post ko sa kabila pagkatapos ng trabaho 🤘

will post pics later
edit: added link from ars technica

I don't know if this counts but I did buy a P1k barebones keyboard from shopee - the CIY Tester68. This one has good reviews naman so I figured why not give it a shot, tutal P999 lang ang price. hehehe It's barebones nga lang so you have to add switches and keycaps, which is fine by me, I get to tailor it to my liking.

It turned out ok naman. With just a little bit of modding, thocky sound na sya. :-)

Total cost including switches and keycaps is P2260.

Btw, I used cherry mx silver switches and ice cream keycaps for this build.

Nge. Akala ko ginagamit nyo na. :lol:

I have the mod005, not too impressed with the sound profile but I like the build quality, sturdy enough for me. Haven't tried the mod007 yet though. If you do get to try out the 007 v2, let me know how it is. :lol: I like 75% layouts eh so I might let go of my mod005, replace it with a 75% layout keeb. 😁

I'm using Royal Kludge RK71 with red switch pang office. After 1.5yrs, lumobo na yung battery kaya wired na lang siya ngayon.
Eyeing Keychron K3.

Using this Boards atm lol

Akko 3068B - Jelly Purples - Akko Carbon Keycaps - For Coding
RK98 - KTT Whites - Akko Carbon Keycaps (yung isang set) - For Work
KBD Lite D60 Lazurite Edition - RK Browns - Akko Clear Pink Keycaps - For Gaming

Balak ko mag Akko007 v2 (south lead) or Keychron q2 saka Holy Pandas switch. Ayun nga lang wala pa kong extrang keycaps na MDA or XDA.

EDIT:
Ang ayoko lang sa KBD eh too expensive for me (Barebone costs 8k alone) tapos hindi pa tri-mode kaya parang turn-off siya sakin
