We have a thread about the keyboards we have, but what about nice keyboards we come across that we want? If you have seen any that look nice please post them here (or in a dedicated thread with the #keyboards tag).
I want one of these!!
And I might have been tempted to cancel my Moonlander order in favour of the Dygma Raise if it had been Ortholinear:
Even aside from the questionability of spending that much on a keyboard… those IDs seem like they might easily be considered Personally Identifiable Information, which should not be in a publicly shared spreadsheet. Luckily there’s not much else in there that could be considered controversial (except perhaps to ultra keyboard-snobs), but some people might not even want their Geekhack/Discord ID linked to their country of residence.
Found what looks like a cheaper version - but it’s sold out!
I was thinking the same… but that BEAR looks stunning, I really really like it! I think I’m about to get sucked in to the world of mechanical keyboards - someone save me
Generally pseudonyms such as chat/forum usernames are not considered personally identifiable (unless they are your full name like yours ) some forums even have rules against real names being used as usernames for that purpose.
Get a Moondlander like me and @foxtrottwist are getting Herminio more info in this thread:
@AstonJ I always dream of this keyboard could be a Moondlander, but for me, it’s impossible yet because 365 dollars it will be around 3.500 reais in my currency, the economy of my country it going worst every day…
Keyboard kits can be much more affordable. Many are supported by QMK. Though, sometimes depending on the components and the time involved they can end up being even more expensive than some of the popular prebuilt keyboards.
That looks pretty cool @foxtrottwist - I would love to build my own one day and I think I might once I become more familiar with them (I really would like to build one like the BEAR - I’m so enamoured by that keyboard!! )
Another option I have considered (and one you might be interested in too @herminiotorres) is something like this:
Edit: here’s a purple version - perfect for Elixsters:
Seems a lot more affordable at $119:
I’d like to know whether it is easy to use with a Mac, how many layers it allows and what keycap options they have (i.e for Mac keys).
I think red dragon keyboards are pretty popular Herminio, at least from what I’ve seen on Amazon
Found an Alice style keyboard similar to the BEAR… though they don’t have any PCBs in stock:
Think I am going to wait for my Moonlander to arrive and see how it goes before experimenting with others. I do like the Alice and Atreus style of keyboards so might just keep my eye on any group buys surfacing
If I do like Ortho, then I think I would prefer additional keys for things like media controls (which I sometimes need to get to with one hand - such as when on the phone, although I am also considering a macropod)
