ASUS ROG Falchion Cherry Blue Keyboard $199 + Free Shipping to Syd, Melbourne, Brisbane & Canberra Metro @ Mwave

80

Okay I'm really excited about this great little keyboard. I've been following price for a few months and it's finally somewhat reasonable. I can't splash for a keyboard right now but I genuinely hope this can help someone.

The keyboard is wireless, in my opinion it's well presented, form factor is fantastic, and there are a few innovative features which I personally appreciate. It's mechanical with solid battery life and has my preferred keys.

A review - https://au.pcmag.com/keyboards/86413/asus-rog-falchion-wirel... - looks good.

Next closest price I can find is https://www.pccasegear.com/products/52809/asus-rog-falchion-... for $239.

    Good kb. If only it had bluetooth, I'd snap ot without blinking

      It does have BT

        Don't think it does. Website mentions wired and 2.4GHz RF

    What's the quietest mechanical KB for a office environment? I tried a few instore and most to me seems too loud.

      You're probably going to want ones with orings. Reds will probably be the most quiet but they don't have the satisfying "click". Brown's might be quiet enough but still have a click feel.

        I dont mind not having that "click" feeling. It's just so I don't annoy people in my open plan office and I no longer have to use company supplied craptacular keyboard

          black or reds with o-rings, black switches would require more force to press

      There are switches that have silicone dampeners inside, called Cherry MX Silent Red and MX Silent Black. These are different from MX Black and MX Red.
      There probably are quieter mechanical keyboard switches out there, but eh these probably are the easiest to find and grab.

      In fact, my wife have been using MX Silent Red and is using MX Silent Black currently, and I think she's satisfied with the keyboard (though ymmv).
      Leopold makes a few out there, and I personally liked Leopold.

      Or there are options outside of "mechanical keyboards" too. I have heard good things about Logitech MX Keys (though I have personally never used one myself)

      You could check out the Matias Quiet Click switches, which are a reproduction of the Alps switches. I've got one and it is noticably less "clacky" than my Cherry Brown and Zealios switched keyboards, but still retains a satisfying tactility when typing.

      There's a few keyboards here in different layouts with the quiet switches: https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_lis...

      And further information on the switches themselves here: http://matias.ca/switches/quiet/

      Highly recommend them if noise is a factor, I love mine.
