I am literally a bad financial decision.
Mech: Redragon K605 Giant 60% Mechanical Keyboard with 2x Scale Blue Switches (sound test)
Headphones: ZMF Aeolus in Bubinga Wood (alternate pic)
Pens: Blackbeard Designs Koa & Black Titanium Pens
Seriously. I wonder if this started out as a joke, but they forgot and made it anyway. Then I remember I bought one and yeah… there’s certainly a target audience. People who cannot resist memes. As far as typing experience, I’ve developed a decent speed and cadence using the board. It’s violently loud (check the sound demo) and easily bottoms out. The switches aren’t all that heavy. I think box navy switches have them beat there. The only thing that would prevent me from recommending it (unless you were Shaq) even for memes would be the coating on the keycaps. It’s some textured spray-on stuff that wasn’t all that well applied, and a total fingerprint magnet. If you’ve got a Microcenter near you, they have one on display, but it’s probably gross, lol.

If someone gave me 150$ to spend on a keyboard, I‘d probably take this keyboard
- Light Green + Slate Gray don’t work together. Light green doesn’t stand out enough for the legends to be legible at an immediate glance.
- Swamp Green + White / Light Gray don’t work together. IMO, swamp green is the equivalent of diarrhea brown, but for green.
White on Lime Green is .
Though, I don’t think I could stand an entire keycap set of White on Lime Green.
Lime in moderation, y’all.
Also, while I do love me my monotone colors, I feel extremely neutral, borderline dislike for Slate Gray. Particularly shades / renders / depictions of Slate Gray with emphasis on the bluish tint.
Stop stealing muh muh muh trademark you dastards!!!
Still lowkey searching for a blank, black-and-lime green or fully lime green set of keycaps. Preferably OEM profile, so that I can mix n’ match accent keys with my existing set of blank black keycaps.
MAKE LESS GMK, GIB MOAR BLANK KEYCAP SETS GRRR.
Though, if others feel differently than I do about the GMK Lime, Group Buys / Pre Orders for the keycap set and accompanying custom cable are now running on Drop.
Go look up the link for yourself, lazy bones. 'Chew is not linking to stuff she dun like.
All the blanks I’ve come across are always mint green.
This was not what I meant when I said leave all the lime for Den.
Why you gotta do me like that?
You have all the buzz words and a rotary encoder… AND NO F ROW?!
Why on earth would you go full size and NO F ROW?!
It’s so sick otherwise.
Not hot swap, but I would def sit there and solder for this IF IT HAD AN F ROW.
Dangit… I might just do it anyway. It seems like every 1800 project that comes out tries to distinguish itself by removing something. Last time it was the arrow cluster. Sigh.
An Introduction to Custom Mechanical Keyboards - Draft
Comment or browse, if you wish?
There’s been a few changes made after I posted the original on LTT:
- Added Compatibility Check (Section 4.2), Optical Switches (Section 5.0) topics.
- Revamped Vendors List and Artisan Vendors List (Section 6.0), grouping vendors by Region.
- Added more notes on topics after firsthand experiences (e.g. Topres, Stabilizers).
- A more comprehensive list of changes may be found under Revision History (Section 7.5).
Current thread on LTT is still on the [05/27/2021] Revision, not yet updated with the small changes / additions I’ve made to the Custom Mechanical Keyboards - Vendors List thread.
So, the main question is, would peepos like me to port that megathread over to this forum?
I’m more concerned that it may not be a very “active” thread, or that it won’t be too useful, 'cos a bunch of peepos here already know their way around custom keebs.
Would also make for good (site) content from an SEO standpoint.
…Need to grab pics from elsewhere that isn’t other people’s sites.
[Phone pics intensifies.]
Feels like grounds for Interweb drama if I post it on as-is.
If you give me a to-do list of pics you think I can take with what I have, lemme know.
Also welcome to use anything in the keebs album.
i mean the list probably doesn’t need more layouts from what I’ve seen when browsing for keycaps most people use ANSI .so I’ll (maybe) make a seperate layout list.
I know a few people who would stab you for this comment.
Did you happen to have the v1? If so how do they compare to the v2?
