The recording is on the quiet side, so you might need to turn this one up - and actually from the couch rather than at the desk today because I’m feeling casual. I am really enjoying this. Like I sat down to play a game half an hour ago but I’ve been on Monkeytype the whole time. >.>
NuPhy Night Breeze lienars (POK stem, long-pole, factory lubed)
Finally built up my Salvation, have been using for about a week or two at work and absolutely loving it.
S/O to all the folks here who gave me tips on silent tactiles to check out. I ended up going with TTC Slient Bluish Whites and they’re exactly what I was looking for: smooth, with a sharp-ish tactility and a very pleasant thud/clack sound.
Giving MDA Future Suzuri a try with Blackberries today.
I love having a dark-colored MDA set with kitting support for a bunch of keebs, but I do wish the QC was just a bit better.
The colors are fantastic, but the legends on some of the colored keys are fairly blurry, and are sometimes pretty off-center. That fleck on the pipe key isn’t dust, but a scratch that doesn’t seem to buff-out - I keep wanting to brush it off and remember it’s there to stay.
That’s about all the complaints, though - as long as you don’t look too close, I think it looks fantastic - and I love the feel of MDA, even if I’m not the fastest or most accurate with it compared to others. I find it quite comfy. The homing bars are a little faint - with my nerve damage I can hardly feel them at all, though it doesn’t seem to be much of an issue for me. Still - worth noting that the homing here is subtle at best.
So far it’s hard for me to pick whether I prefer the sound of these or ABS MT3 on the Blackberries. This is where I have some trouble finding the right descriptive words… with MT3, they definitely sound deeper - but with the MDA they sound… more full? Like a wider range of the spectrum? I’ll try to find a more concrete way to talk about this for my upcoming review of the Blackberries (and possibly this keyset).
A budget keyboard. KBDCraft Kit Adam in a case built from blocks in the kid’s LEGO bin. Switches are lubed Kailh browns that I received when I purchased a couple of mystery switch packs. The keycaps are a $20 MDA set from AliExpress. The colors are kind of loud but the keyboard sounds and feels nice to type on.
