I was living under a rock for the longest, I'll be upfront about it. I never felt the need to use mech keyboards. In fact I was pretty fast with flat membrane types. Then one day I purchased a Logitech G613 with Romer G keys. They're pretty responsive and I love the feedback, it feels good. Now I can't go back to any other keyboard, in fact when I'm typing in another keyboard I'll hit keycaps like crazy, and type very slow is a strange feeling like I'm expecting the spring feedback.
Lately I been thinking about making my own keyboard from scratch, I'll 3D print the plate and create a custom pcb if I feel dangerous enough, else I'll go for handwire. Or purchase the pcb ymdk 96. That layout has num keypad, arrows, function keys, but got a compact layout.
I would like to get Brown switches, or maybe reds. Do you like mechanical keyboards? Do you fancy colorful keycaps?
