Im cringing at the fact he's using Cherry MX Switches in a keyboard like this

my k70 mk.2 special edition with cherry mx speed is the same price as the aluminum case, and it has an aluminum case as well. i think the companies that sell these parts are marking up the prices dozens of times over their actual costs expecting to only sell to people who want to change one or two parts out of their existing keyboard

Is there a guide somewhere with all mechanical switch types and brands available? Because to be honest, I'm looking for a very specific feel, and may end up having to build my own switches as well.

It is possible to bring the cost down dramatically, but if you buy hot-swap PCB's and other super deluxe stuff, it adds up. I probably wouldn't spend quite this much on a normal 60% keyboard, the end product is kind of crap for serious typists and heavy keyboard users. I would, however, pay this kind of money to upconvert an old and beloved ergonomic keyboard from rubber dome to mechanical. But that would require fully custom PCB's and such that I suspect would add up real fast. Not sure I love it that much.

Man I would totally do this if it was more affordable. Looks super cool and being able to customize my switches would be super useful for me. Sadly I can't even afford a 100 dollar keyboard so I'll just stick with my used half broken razer blackwidow that I bought for a nickel on the dollar

Tyler Mai you can shave off A LOT from what linus did choosing the right vendors. You don't necessarily have to swap springs, just get the switches. Gateron IMO is better than cherry AND cheaper, sold in a website called Sentarq, 70 of them for $14. You can also get stabilizers for those for $10. Gk64 pcb and plate kit is $53 by kbdfans on aliexpress. You can get the 60% ALU case on aliexpress for $50. That same keycap set is $30 on kbdfans. Thats a total less than half of what linus payed, at $150~.

+Pings OW No you didn't. But your comment was stupid and pointless which is why I pointed it out as such. It's the same as if I said "I've had my car stolen by black guys three times now" and you said, "that's racist. Not all black people steal". And I replied with "I never said they do" and then you said, "I didn't say they did either." They are stupid and pointless replies. Anyway, I don't care. So if you want to keep this going, I'll just block you.

+Pings OW Did anything I say seem like I was talking about ALL coders? No. It didn't. Like I said, I know a lot and they say they prefer their number pads. That doesn't mean that some don't. There are coders that use boards even smaller so that they don't have to move their hands. That doesn't mean I'm wrong. It just means that some people like different things. I was talking about, in general. Just like, in general, Asians are the smartest race of people alive. But there are some seriously stupid Asians out there. It's called logic. Use it.
