                Dear LTT.

                I and i assume alot of people would really love to see
                you reviewing a SHIPADOO D280 keyboard+mouse combo.
                would really appreciate it.

                  Great idea having a blind test. However; only two people used, both of them habituated to mechanical keyboards, and both saying, "oh...it feels fake, it feels kinda squishy, it's trying to be something it's not." If anyone tries to recreate a similar test, do this: 1. Use more people, with a few who use mechanicals and a few who don't. 2. Do not blind fold them-simply hide the keyboard from view. 3. Have them do some simple tasks, such as typing a few lines of text (maybe just asdfjkl;), put them in the Overwatch practice range, and have them hit bots (the keyboard could be hidden so they could only see the monitor), etc. 4. Do not ask them anything about feelings-simply see which keyboard performs the best. If people can recognize (even by touch) something that they think is more expensive, they will almost always say it is better, so...if they suspect a keyboard is a membrane type they will say they don't like the way it feels - I am beginning to suspect mechanical keyboards are mostly a waste of money (I am typing on one). Mechanicals bottom out at twice the depth of a membrane - this is not necessary, but they all copy each other anyway. I can type faster on a membrane, as I always bottom out the keys (like most people).

                        This video seems unusually negative. I needed a new keyboard and I spent days researching the different options at my price point. This one had almost entirely very positive reviews, even from pretty die-hard mech keyboard users; many talked about how it was amazingly close to MX blue. In fact, this is the only review I can recall that was negative about the keyboard, and it's negative to quite an extreme. I even went into a shop before I bought it and tested it side by side with several different fully mechanical keyboards, and this one felt better than most of those.

                        Then again, I guess maybe when you're used to several hundred dollar keyboards, pretty much anything not obscenely expensive is going to seem like trash. lol

                                          I consider the IBM XT (1985) keyboard to have been the best, both mechanically and electronically. Not only was it super-tough, not only did it have precise click keys (if it clicked down, it took the keystroke, and if it didn't click down, it didn't take a keystroke).... BUT ALSO (unlike more modern keyboards) it had no limits on how many keys could be pressed down at the same time and still be able to register the next keypress properly

                                                "can a membrane keyboard really replicate the feel of a mechanical one?" ... I mean you made an entire video sucking the Model M's dick, and that's a mem-chanical keyboard so... like, obviously.
