Anyone tried an OrthoLinear keyboard before ?
I’m thinking about getting the preonic and see how long it’ll take me to get used to it.

Currently dailying a Keebio FoldKB. Didn't take me long to adjust at all. Mods and bottom row are not ortho though.

I see.
I’m thinking to pair it with a blank keycap set.
Mainly because of the aesthetics.

Might as well up the difficulty level to the max right Hahhaha.

Then go ahead and change to Colemak DH while you're at it.

I'm only half joking, I wish I had done that.

Used to be a preonic ortholinear keyboard user. It took me a week to get used to it, but unfortunately, the PCB died after 6 months. I was able to get a full refund from Drop, as they currently don't sell the PCB separately as parts. Still, I love ortholinear keyboards and will give it another try if the price reduces.

does Cooler Master have a basic (non-special-edition) variant of that CK570 Street Fighter keyboard?

with some keyboards being hot swappable, is it better to switch to optical switches or stay with low profile mechanical ones?

Dropped by Mecha, this was the only suitable keycaps they had at that time.
And I still need a proper 2U space bar.
Used the new mz studio z1 linear switches. A pretty good factory lubed yet budget switch.

Definitely not adventurous enough to try colemak yet.
WPM dropped a lot with the preonic, but I'm starting to get used to it.

Hi, how long have you been using this Drop Preonic keyboard?

I would love to hear from others as well about how long their Preonic keyboards have last

Got it less than a month ago for just a little over Rm200.
Black Friday Amazon was selling it for rather cheap.

Wow, that's a great deal you've gotten. I already miss the boat, otherwise I could buy and use the new PCB in my old Preonic case.
