Keyboard and Switches

It all started when I got my very first mechanical keyboard in 2016-ish. It was a Cooler Master Quick Fire TK with Cherry MX Browns. Even as a noob I didn't like its tactility, in this case, the lack of. This board disappointed me, thanks Linus. I sold this board after a few months.

So, what did I do next? I bought another CM keyboard with MX Browns. *face palm* This time it was brand new since I figured a used board would feel different, but guess what? Keyfeel still sucked. I sold this after a week.

Next, I decided to go "all out" on my next purchase, so I bought a Corsair K95...with MX Browns. I thought I would get the ultimate typing experience by buying the most expensive keyboard with MX Browns at the time.*double face palm* The answer was a solid 'no'. I sold this board after only a few days.

The next keyboard I bought was a Corsair K70 RGB with MX Browns. However, this time I knew the switches would suck, so I specifically went for a really cheap deal. I've lost quite a bit of cash at this point too, and I didn't want to go back to using a rubber dome, so I just kept using the K70. In fact, that very board was the one I reviewed on my channel in early 2020.

Around 2019, I discovered the GMMK as well as the r/mk subreddit. Also, I used a GMMK full-size with Kailh Pinks for a while until I settled for the GK61 to be my 'test' keyboard for various MX type switches.

There is no such thing as the "best" keyboard or switch. The "best" is defined by your personal preference.
This is the keyboard I would build if I could.

  • QWERTY layout
  • 68% form factor (just like the Ikki68)
  • Alps Orange switches
  • Double-shot PBT WoB OEM profile keycaps
  • Aluminium case & plate
  • Black/grey/white/purple patterned removable braided cable
  • Bluetooth functionality
In an ideal world I'd like to be able to cover everything, but there are a few things that stop me from making a review.

Number 1: Availability. If the said keyboard or switch is frequently out of stock or was only available through a group-buy, then you probably won't see my review on it.
Number 2: Price. As it stands, I mostly buy everything I review. If I can't afford it, it won't get a review unless there is a reasonable price drop or if I receive it as a donation.
Number 3: Rarity. If a manufacturer only sold a certain product in limited quantities or was only ever available in select countries, then there's a good chance you'll never see my review on it.

In any case, if I can get my hands on it, I can do a review on it!
Sure, but it really has to interest me; there's no point otherwise.
