DROP SHIFT Mechanical Keyboard Review

DROP SHIFT Mechanical Keyboard Review

No unboxing today, as this is a pre-production unit from Drop, formerly known as Massdrop. Interesting choice, but yeh, if you know Massdrop keyboards, they have the ALT, CTRL, and now the SHIFT. And surprise surprise, it’s basically the same thing, but bigger. As it is a pre-production unit, it isn’t the final product, and therefore things are subject to change, however, I can only review what I have in front of me. And I’ve been told that it will come with the same contents as the previous boa...

Why Get a Mechanical Keyboard?

Why Get a Mechanical Keyboard?

I’ve been covering mechanical keyboards for quite a while now, dealing with the whole spectrum, but I’ve never really talked about why. Why mechanical keyboards? Why spend a tonne of money on a keyboard, when a cheap $10 one does the same thing?. And this is absolutely true. We can't deny that a cheap one does what it's supposed to do. But there's more to it. For many of us a keyboard is an essential tool that we use everyday, whether it be at home or at work; or both. So like many other everyda...

Building my first mechanical keyboard

Building my first mechanical keyboard

- There's this recurring joke in the mechanical keyboard community about endgame. (keyboard clacking) Even though you know that the right keyboard could last you pretty much an entire lifetime, actually finding that keyboard is another matter entirely. I've tried everything from traditional keyboards, to really retro keyboards, I've even tried some more eccentric designs. But they're not quite endgame. And so today, I'm gonna try building one from scratch. (techno music) So, I've swapped out swi...

Biomaterials: Mechanical Properties | Wikipedia audio article

Materials that are used for biomedical or clinical applications are known as biomaterials. The following article deals with fifth generation biomaterials that are used for bone structure replacement. For any material to be classified for biomedical application three requirements must be met. The first requirement is that the material must be biocompatible; it means that the organism should not treat it as a foreign object. Secondly, the material should be biodegradable (for in-graft only); the m...

This is My 60 - Small Mechanical Keyboards (#22)

This is My 60 - Small Mechanical Keyboards (#22)

This is My 60 Episode 22. Rumours that I was waiting for the One 2 Mini hype to die down are completely false. This episode may even get the r/customkeyboards seal of approval. This QXP looks amazing in this shot and is one of only about 75 that were in the group buy. I like the lip, which reminds me of my TX-CP with the older design. GMK Pristine isn't a pure white like Stormtrooper, which this photo captures really well. If I put a keyset called Pristine on any of my keyboards, the irony would...

New SUPER THIN Mechanical Keyboard!

New SUPER THIN Mechanical Keyboard!

My coverage of Computex 2019 is sponsored by Tecware, providing affordable quality computer and gaming products. Cooler Master had a massive presence as you’d expect, but in regards to mechanical keyboards, they focused a lot on showing off their low profile boards, rather than their traditional Cherry MX boards. So there’s 2 main types. There’s the ones with the Cherry low profile switches, and then the newer Omron ones. Okay so a while back Cooler Master released the SK650 and SK630 low pro bo...

Durgod K320 Mechanical Keyboard - Unboxing & Review

Durgod K320 Mechanical Keyboard - Unboxing & Review

Alrighty, so I’ve been getting told to review the Durgod keyboards for ages now, with people telling me how good they are for the price. And I was lucky enough to visit the Durgod booth at Computex to check out their keyboards, and I thought that they were some sweet boards, but let’s have a closer look at their main tenkeyless line the K320. There’s a couple of variations of the K320, that have different keycaps, and different lighting options. But they all should fundamentally be...
