legend Posted October 6, 2018 Share Posted October 6, 2018 Sometime ago I bought a mechanical keyboard. I really didn't like it. I constantly made a lot of mistakes on it hitting keys I didn't intended. This persisted even after using it for quite some time. I was better on my friggin ipad keyboard of all things! It's possible it was just the keyboard I got, but I felt the same whenever I tried other people's mechanical keyboards. The more I thought about it, the more I decided the fundamental issue is that the keys on mechanical keyboards were just too tall with too much depression distance. It requires you to pick up your fingers far too far as you move them to another key. Other keyboards I did well on, including the ridiculous ipad keyboard, had very low-profile keys. So that got me thinking, are there low-profile mechanical keyboards? It turned out the answer was yes, but really only starting with this year and there are not many. But I promptly bought this keyboard, which is actually pretty cheap to: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074QM6F7X/ And I have to say, having used it for a while now (I got one for my work computer and gaming, with the gaming one being the 10-key-less for more mouse space), I think it's my favorite keyboard ever. Gone are the bizarre kind of errors I would make on my other keyboard, but you're still left with a very satisfying feeling when you press the key. I know other people had similar problems with making lots of mistakes on mechanical keyboards, so if you're one of them, I highly recommend trying out one of these new low-profile keyboards. They really seem to strike the best balance of everything out there. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
