Hi Thnikk! I've sent you a message on Etsy, also I am wondering if you plan to restock the Led Keypads (r2)?

I was shooting for the end of the week, but I may have to push it back to Monday. You can follow/favorite my shop to get notified of updates or you can follow me on twitter where I sometimes remember to post.

I have a question, are you able to switch the switches on the keyboard without using a soldering iron? Like the osu! nono keyboard. Thanks in advance!

Pretty sure the nono is soldered on the PCB. I'm also assuming Thnikk's keypads are handwired, not using a PCB.

Only shows the switch covers being swapped, not actual SIP sockets. There was a Massdrop keyboard that had socketed MX switches but it was long ago since that drop ended.

Yeah, not very good with keyboard terminology, so I kinda don't know this stuff :P But I meant if the keyboard could do something similar to the demonstration in the video

If you're a regular on this forum, you might be able to know what we are talking about. In any case, give this site a look.

So from my understanding, and what you said, I can effectively "swap out" the switches by taking out the springs and such on the nono keyboard but not the entire switch itself? Also, does this mean that Thnikk's keyboard allows for the swapping of entire switches? If that's what happens when a keyboard is handwired. I was planning to get either the hnikk's keyboard and switch out the switches for Cherry MX Browns since he doesn't have it as an option.

It doesnt really matter if you swap it by popping the covers or SIP given every MX clone has the same exact housing other than color and material.

GUH, LOTS OF ORDERS. TRYING TO MAKE NEW RGB KEYPAD. NEW ANIME SEASON. DYING.

Keypads will be back up on Wednesday.


Switches can't be fully removed without soldering and you currently would have to remove the hotglue (very easy with rubbing alcohol) to open the switches, but I'm working on a way around this to make the same solution used on the nono keyboard available on my keypads. Expect to see it when the r3 RGB(W) keypad comes out ;)

Or better yet. You could 3D print custom housing that are easily removable without the need of special tools.

I want to get one of these, however, I want to know what everyone thinks about 125hz polling rate. That's an 8 millisecond delay. Is that a significant delay if I'm aiming to get to a really high rank?

I can't really afford any of the 1000hz ones (LED, RGB models). They cost 70 dollars including shipping as I'm from Australia and that's just a bit too much for two buttons.

add few bucks and get a full mech keyboard from a local store.. it's a way better option
cooler master storm is the way to go

Does anyone here happen to know the polling rate of the official osu! nono keyboard?

nope, sadly

Got mine at home like 30min ago, and I'm already playing with it.

People complains about the polling rate. Do I actually feel any kind of lag? No, I don't. It feels exactly as my mech kb, except that my kb has blue switches, which are noisy as fuck. It is pretty comfortable since it is 10 times smaller than a kb, so I can place my hand much better.

I could chose between different switches, and decided to go for the Cherry MX red. It comes with 2 o-rings included on every key, which make the keys pretty silent.

U don't need to configure anything, u just plug in the keypad into the usb and it works properly. The default binded keys seem to be Z and X, and ESC on the red button on the left side.

I'll be playing with it from now on, need to get used to it.

Since thnikk's keypads have Teensy LC in them for the logic boards, can't you just use the Serial.begin function? I swear 9600 baud is freakishly fast for scanning button states, only hampered by the limitations of HID-USB which is 1000 Hz.

Thanks to everyone for all of the reviews recently! It makes me very happy to wake up to a new review and I've gotten a lot of them over the past few days :)

Everything is back in stock as of this post except for some of the keypop keycaps. I'm probably going to make an order within the next few days so expect to see those within the next week or so.

Shhhhhh, you're letting my secret plans out.

I actually haven't used Teensy LCs for a while. My basic and basic+ models use Adafruit Trinkets (125hz because of USB 1.1) and by LED and RGB models use Pro Micros.

I wish you make like that for osu!mania mode. :3
