drougnor posted a topic in ReviewsWhen you find a great gaming keyboard, the difficulties of transportation often rear their ugly head and prevent you from taking your favorite with you, leaving you to find a cheap imitation to bring ‘on the road’. Cooler Master’s CM Storm division has attempted to tackle this issue for hard core gamers and programmers with the Rapid-i Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. Check out the full article HERE.
drougnor posted a topic in ReviewsHigh quality keyboards have become a major focus from computer accessory manufacturers over the last few years as serious gamers and typists are putting more and more pressure on companies to provide them with a product to fill that ever elusive ‘sweet spot’ of keying. Cooler Master’s sub-brand CM Storm stepped up to the plate and offered the Quick Fire XTi keyboard to face the community. Let’s see how they did in the eyes of our Munky, Jeremy.

Hi folks, I'm a happy user of an Apple M0110 keyboard that I converted using Hasu's TMK converter. While I love this keyboard, I really couldn't stand the physically locking Caps Lock (that I use as the Ctrl key). The switch used is the vintage Alps SKCC Lock, that has a physical locking mechanism: http://deskthority.net/wiki/Alps_SKCC_Lock Lowpoly observed that the SKCC Lock switch stem is shorter than the other switches stem and as a consequence the Caps Lock keycap as a longer mounting point to compensate: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=20898.0 [image courtesy of Lowpoly] [image courtesy of Lowpoly] If you want to use a standard SKCC in place of the SKCC Lock switch, you have to dremel the Caps Lock keycap ... I do not like the idea of damaging it :unsure: [image courtesy of Lowpoly] My idea is a very simple. This humble mod consists in opening the switch to remove the locking mechanism (the bended yellow wire and the small brown lug). The "big" easily noticable tabs are for the plate mounting. To open the switch you have to slightly release the very small tabs on the other sides (be careful as they are fragile). Then you just have to reassemble the switch. The real plus of this solution is that you can still reverse the mod and go back to the vanilla locking switch and the keycap remains untouched. Enjoy :P ! Note: I had to desolder the switch to open it as the plate blocks the tabs if you don't.
noobas4urus posted a topic in ReviewsI'm not sure if you're aware, but we're currently in the midst of a revolution. An LED revolution—an RGB revolution. RGB case lighting and accessories have exploded into the PC market in the last few years, and the mechanical keyboard is no exception. A back-lit keyboard has been an attractive proposition for many (especially Gamers, for all those late night sessions) and the RGB option brings a whole new level of flash, pizzazz, and customization. Thermaltake joins the party with their newly released Poseidon Z RGB mechanical gaming keyboard. Available in blue and brown switch options. The deck uses a Kailh switch with an offset RGB LED. For those unfamiliar with Kailh switches, they're a Chinese-made switch whose color codes match up with CherryMX switches. The review keyboard has blue switches, characterized by their clicky tactile feel on depression. Read the rest of the article HERE:
