    As a scissor switch fan I approve of this, might be just the thing once my aging Logitech Ultra X Premium finally packs it in. :)

    Get yourself a Topre if you like rubber domes so much.

    I admit I've never used one but I see little point in replacing a dome switch with a mechanical one that tries to emulate it, since everything traditionally associated with mechanical switches tends to be things I dislike. (Ie. the feel, the travel, the noise, the price.)

    Luckily my current keyboard is still fine, and while the keyboard market is distinctly slanted towards mechanical (at least as far as what's marketed towards the enthusiast demographic goes) it's not like it's difficult to pick up dome switch keyboard. Cherry just happens to make quite good ones. :)

    Topre are electrostatic capacitive non-contact keyboard switches with a dome at its base. Do you research first before you write something as ignorant as that.

    It's not really rubber and not really mecanical at the same time...
    Sadly it tend to be rare on keyboard, i love those, very confortable with almost the feel of mecanical keyboard and not so noisy as a mecanical.
    i would love an ISO HHKB, but i can't import one.

    HKKB is overhyped trash. Low-quality materials, light, and wobbly base. Low-quality thin caps. Loud as hell when stock. No internal sound dampening what so ever.
    Stay away from it.

    If you want a solid Topre experience, either get a Realforce or my suggestion will be - Leopold FC660c.
    Incredibly well built, solid PBT double-shot keycaps, internal sound dampening foam, quite heavy for its size and a very nice 65% layout.

    Lube the slider (use Tribosys), add topre silencing rings to silence the upstroke (dome already silences the downstroke) and put some cloth mat or simple towel below your keybaord.

    Silent and nice typing experience is guaranteed.

    I'm using Topre Type Heaven at work, but it's heavily modded (BKE domes + custom PBT keycaps + custom slider (to convert topre slider into CherryMX compatible + silencing rings + internal foam + lots of lube) . Back in the day when I got it, FC660c (man I want that) wasn't even out.

    Use your spell check before you write something as rude as that.[​IMG]

    Can someone recommend a silent keyboard?
    Sometimes I get to work at home at night.
    And if you know of a mouse with USB cable, I would think it would be fantastic.
    Now I have a logitech k120 keyboard and logitech rx250 mouse.
    Greetings.

    It wasn't what i remember from my HKKB i had long ago... for Leopold, the brand is persona non grata in here and don't even deliver anything.
    But we have Varmilo that produce equivalent (as 3rd party maker for Leopold product in the past) but only in cherry MX switch range sadly but with same customisable keycaps.

    The non-mecanical Cherry are quiet silent and stay that way for long years compared to logitech that do some plastic whining after some time, the brand have huge experience in administrative service and OEM, for the mouse they produce don't expect better than normal mouse.
    OR you get the habit to type with silent MX (with silicone ring or not depending of your skill) and don't let your finger make keycaps hit the shield or PCB with a mecanical keyboard :)

    How come they don't deliver to france. Look at:
    https://mykeyboard.eu/
    https://candykeys.com/
    https://kbdfans.com/

    All deliver across EU.

    Then be rude in your native language and represent your heritage in ignorance.[​IMG]

    i AM french... but in am in Andorra (and so not part of EU but using Euro and also special tax in a very good way for resident ;) )
    the co-prince is french president but we don't speak french, and have strict custom at the frontier with EU (Spain and France)
    But we can use service from both as we were from those country in some case, or our local too.
    Lot of strange things for non residents... :)
