    with that being said though, Ive contacted Edimax & Also TP-Link and their english has been pretty good.

    Since ive started an RMA with my retailer, i might as well see what they have to say first.

    Agreed. I've actually spoken directly to customer service in Taiwan, China and South Korea, and all of them spoke very good English. The Taiwanese woman even English'd better than me, and I'm pretty sure it's not her native language. Speaking from a customer support perspective, it seems to be the Middle East and western Asia that don't English good.

    I am really interested in those Kailh switches but looking up on mech keyboard forum like GH and Deksthority always gives me bad impression about those switches.
    I am aware that they are copying Cherry's design but are they really bad ? Yes, they are a bit cheaper than Cherry MX equipped mech keyboard but not something that I would call "cheap" since membrane keyboards dont cost as much as they do.
    I am interested in 84-key or 60% mech keyboard right now and Keycool brand is on my list but apparently they started using Kailh switches in their newer keyboards.

    More shots of my keyboard :D

    I took this awhile back, and while it's not exactly the high-def pr0n shots that most users are posting here, it does speak well to this keyboard. (Sorry if the music is not to your specific liking, it just did a reasonable job showing off the keyboard/mouse TalkFX functions)

    afaik all mech switches (not the scissor ones) are the same fitting.

    looks like a good bet on your side of the pond.

    Dolch PAC-486 Keyboard. Dolch keycaps are some of the best MX keycaps imo.

    It has that Topre feel, though somehow, it feels a little more refined on my HHKB 2's. But, I have no complaints or reservations whatsoever with regard to the Novatouch. If I had, I'd not have bought two, would I? :pimp:

    youre gonna cry like a pussybitch when LEDs start to die.


    Im trying to get a Corsair RGB K70 Brown to replace my Ducky Shine with butt tonne of LEDs. Problem with that is stock straight out does not exist, even with all the major retailers. They aint even sold on AMAZON and the only way to get them is to have it imported via ebay and the prices are so bad....

    Because thats a nice keyboard.

    Also, replacing LEDs isnt a straightforward job and most people lack the technical expertise to replace the dead LEDs in their own keyboard.

    Ive had LEDs die within a week to a month of ownership and its gotten to a point where ive replaced so many keyboards that its not worth sending them off for RMA anymore as the money ive spent on shipping alone could buy me another mechanical keyboard or two.

    Jumping onto this Massdrop!

    These are not your average backlit capable keycaps, these are PBT!!!

    I have been using a mixture of ABS backlit and PBT non-backlit keycaps on my Ducky Year of the Snake, and it's embarassing. I love the feeling of PBT keycaps, and now you can get them backlit for only $30 (+tax&ship)!
