@danyspin97 I haven't tested them and I have no desire to, but I now that some like Alps and the clones. :)
The reason I'm not bothering with them is availability and compatibility. You're /very/ limited in terms of PCBs and keycaps.
I ordered the Planck keyboard from Massdrop, and I choosed Matias switches. The other choices were Gatheron and other that I don't remember. There weren't Cherry MX switches, so I went for the Matias. I hope I will like them, considering it's my first mechanical keyboard :)
@danyspin97 Noice! :D They're good switches, I'll bet you'll be happy with them. Which revision of the Planck?
Gateron is what I'm using, it's so called "Cherry MX clones". The patent for Cherry MX-switches is more than 30 years old so it has expired and everyone's allowed to use the same design now, which has flooded the market with a lot of good options. :)
@hund rev6, the last. It is not the Planck drop with the RGB lights, but the normal one. I wanted to assembly one myself but it costs me a lot more than picking the drop. Which type are you using? Clicky, Linear or Tactile?
@danyspin97 Nice! :) I like linears, back when I got my first mechanical keyboard, you had like two to choose from and only one switch type (Cherry MX Black, heavy linears). What did you choose?
@hund I choosed the Matias Quiet Click because i wanted to try a Clicky/Tactile switch ^^
@danyspin97 Cool! It's going to be a long wait. ;)
