Kailh Speed Silvers Are Too Fast For Me

April - 2021

I picked up a Moonlander Keyboard. It's a lot of fun. One change I'd make, if I could do it again, is choosing different key switches. I went with Kailh Speed Silvers. I picked them based off this chart. They require super low pressure. Combined with the low key travel, I figured they'd be good for reducing the risk of RSI.

Turns out, they're a little too easy to press.

Breath on them wrong and they start throwing letters on the screen. I graze them all the time. Throwing unintentional letters in my words. After a few months of trying to get used to them, it's time to try something else.

Down the keyboard switch rabbit hole I go.
