These Are Keyboards You NEED To Know About!

  • Published on Jun 3, 2019
  • Are many gaming keyboard companies ripping us off? That's the question we asked ourselves during Computex 2019 where companies like Varmilo, Leopold, Wooting and Ducky were busy putting their "gaming" competition to shame. We wanted to make a video dedicated just to them since these are honestly some of the best and most unique keyboards around.

    Leopold, Varmilo, and Ducky are all great keyboard makers. Leopold especially deserves some recognition as the other two have slowly but surely gaining some sort of recognition. Leopold always seemed to be the kid in the back that got no attention until now. Great to see!

    What is the Leopold keyboard with the felt? Is that a new version of the FC750R, because that model has been around for a while, but I've not seen it with the felt before. From the image @6:29, it seems to have the 'OE' OEM prefix, so I'm guessing this isn't the final name? Really keen to know more about this model, does anyone know when it will be out? Really liking the purple on black keys also.

    also what you may have mentioned but if you did i missed it, varmilo generally make better quality keyboards than ducky, which is even more great.

    I wanna see a combination of that super silent keyboard with that low profile keyboard, that would be the perfect keyboard for me. Those 2 features in 75% form factor would just be amazing.

    Oh my god, I'm in love with Varmilo designs. I'd been thinking of getting a DasKeyboard 4q, but how can that compete with a keyboard that has _motherfucking whales_ on it!? I think I'll be getting it for my home computer. The Cooler Master one seems awesome too. I wonder when it will come out, as I'm looking for a new mac keyboard for the office.

    it's not only the soldering points. i have 6 keyboards and two of them are the FC660M with mx-clears and FC660C topre edition.. and these days i only use way more expensive full alu boards with brass ascents way more expensive then Leopold .. but Two things i'm sure of.. the plastic used by Leopold is the best in the market.. no reverb strange creaking noises.. and the stabelizers used are the best in the market for ready to use boards.. i can de-solder and replace them as i have all the tools and i don't that's how good they are.. Wooting should now as he has one himself .hahahaha..great guys btw.. And the tech Wooting uses will give you the smoothest switches as there is nothing to grind against. ahhaha.. still i would lube.. because i'm mad.. but be carful when lubing other technology..

    Depends on what you're looking for guess but I typed on a Ducky Legend for a couple of years. Great switches (Cherry MX) but the frame of the keyboard scratched easily even though I am not wearing a watch or anything and it was just sitting at my desk I never moved it or took it with me. Also the lighting effects were really poor. If you'd choose the breathing effect the keyboard would miss some of your key presses making it unusable and unreliable in that lighting mode. The USB cord was really stiff and way to short (a pet peeve of mine with many peripherals I must say). My current keyboard is a Drevo Tryfyng v2 and I am very pleased with it. I enjoy it far more than I did that Ducky.

    How does one type on non-ergonomic keyboards and not destroy one's wrists? This is not the future. I wish wearable kbs like twiddler 3 would get cheaper.

    Like the thinner keyboard shown except the key caps are perfectly flat, so a no go right off the bat. When will these companies realize how bad the ergonomics are of these super thick keyboards?

    I know I'm late to this, but I wanted to say that I this was a great video to show people that mechanical keyboards don't just exist in the gaming scene. Although, I really want to point out that as much as everybody recommended Ducky to me, I had a frustrating experience after purchasing the one 2 mini. They let their One 2 mini model have a key chattering issue that went on for over 6 months while barely addressing it. Pretty frustrating to have your keyboard double or triple typing a key after one press. I had to spend more money RMA'ing the product and Duckys delayed response to the whole thing has left a bad taste in my mouth. This was a widespread issue but they were still banking on all the streamer clout they were getting for it.
