Hey guys,

So the razed 50% sale is up and i could get the blackwidow ultimate tourny edition stealth or whatever it is for 51 quid however.

Ive been looking at 2 keyboards ive seen venruki and vanguards use.

Roppoo choc mini mx brown- ive seen this online looks fab! Reviews say its sturdy etc! Can only find it available in mx blue and i think mx red though. Brown is the best option?

Daskeyboard model s ultimate - seen this, i never look at my keyboard, ever, so i have no need for the buttons, looks like a great keyboard. Think this one is mx brown.

Both are around the $100 range, think the noppoo was on sale from $200 to $100 or some shit.

Thoughts...?

Noppoo i found: http://www.amazon.co...&tag=face08f-20

This is the noppoo i found, worth buying? How much worse is the red switch to the brown?

Red vs brown is really whether or not you want the slight tactile bump. I prefer brown, but w/e.

I would not buy noppo choc mini > $50. I would not buy their tenkeyless > $60 (if you can even find it outside of China I dunno).

i have a noppo, ive had razer oones before, i will never get a keyboard that isnt a noppo from now on

I too use exclusively noppo choc mini, though I would not really recommend it at this price point. It can be nice if you have a really small desk and need the super compact form factor. It can be nice if you get it really fucking cheap (<$50). If neither of those apply, I would not recommend. If I had to start from scratch I would not buy noppoo choc mini. At this point I use it because of muscle memory. It is not crap build quality, but it is not great. The firmware is also quite bad (though works fairly well on windows for the most part).

Maybe consider a costar, like cooler master quickfire rapid, the old one, if you can find it.


I dunno what the default cheap tenkeyless board is now.
