I’m Rob from the SF Bay Area and had an interest in keyboards for a while. I started my interest years ago when I found some keyboards just felt easier to type on versus others. I think the first expensive keyboard I bought was a Logitech G15, then later I found some older keyboards like a Compaq MX11800, Unicomp at work in the recycle bins. I started to research mechanical switches and ended up buying a WASD as my first keyboard (Cherry Browns).
Since then I bought stock off the shelf keyboards like Ducky, Torpe, WASD and others. Currently, I’m waiting for the Kira to come out and I’m planning to build a keyboard from scratch when I find a nice kit. Looking forward to learning more from this forum!
Almost forgot, I prefer 87 as my favorite format (but I also use 104 at home) and lighter switches (tactile or linear).
