The Perixx PX-1900 has a insane 3.8 mm travel. It should only be around less than $35-$40 (USD). If it is being sold for insanely inflated prices, Perixx probably sold out. Wait for them to restock if that is the case.

​

The keyboard keycaps are slightly contoured. So while it won’t have a firm grip on your fingers, it will be a bit more difficult for your finger tips to slide off due to the contouring.

​

It has a no bullshit fullsized (ANSI*) layout which means it has the numpad. It also has EXTREMELY clean backlighting that rivals a lot of “premium” keyboards out there. The only con of this is that the PX-1900’s backlighting will set a insanely high standard for any future keyboard you try to use.

This is the "Perixx PX-1900". Those “chiclet” keyboards are also known as scissor switch keyboards. The keyboard I just linked just so happens to be one of the best gaming scissor switch keyboards that is reasonably affordable. Usually at $49.99 (USD). Sometimes when the first party stocks of the keyboards are out, third parties sell them at inflated prices. If that is the case, wait a little bit before buying.

As for mice, there’s no easy solution there. The only type of cursor control devices that I can think of that are very easy to clean are touchscreens, touchpads, and trackpoints. Things like mice will always be a pain in the behind to clean thoroughly. Especially gaming mice because of all those grooves everywhere. While there’s very grim resistance trackballs out there like the CST-Ltrack, those are rather expensive and I don’t know what your budget is. However, should you REALLY and I mean ABSOLUTELY need that grim resistance but not the clumsy sloppy usage of a trackpad or laggy touchscreen, those CST-LTracks really put in the work! They take like 4 months of heavy use for grim to start being noticeable in the performance of the trackball. When that happens, simply unscrew the bottom, take the 3 wheel/roller stabilizers, and clean off the gunk off of them. Put all 3 back and you’re good for another 4 months. Again, this is HEAVY use. So for lighter users it would take longer to get “dirty”.

Please note that the company behind CST trackballs are undergoing a production transfer.

Here’s more information on that in case a CST trackball is something of interest.

Regardless, sorry for the rather late reply!

I have been using a ps3 controller which I am sure is not quiet as good as a ps4 controller but is a little cheaper. SCP is the best way to get it working.

For keyboards I have really been liking my Perixx 11483. $60 would almost be enough to get this and a PS3 controller.

Not counting Unicomps/IBM-Model-Ms since they’re god like Buckling Springs OVER membrane and since I’m assuming you mean rubber domes over membrane, and not the Topre rubber dome over PCB kind which are EXPENSIVE AS SHIT, here we go with:

​

Taking those two things into account, if you don’t mind tall Scissor Switch keyboards, I stand by my recommendation for rubber-domes OVER membrane keyboards of the “Perixx PX-1900”.

​

The build quality is stellar. It is abnormally smooth for what it ultimately is. It is oddly responsive. Its still under $100. It is currently around $48 (USD) on Amazon US.

Here it is.

​

Oh, and if you want to play osu! Mania with 9 keys or something, it ALMOST has NKRO. Enough to do well over 10 keys but you still won’t be able to say, do duel 9 key co-op on Mania.

​

I always have that little fucker on standby even though I have multiple mechanicals of severely radically different types. Be it Buckling Springs, LK Libras, Topre Clones with BKE Extreme Domes, etc.

Mainly because it has really proven itself to be an absolute unit in use!

Also its a Scissor Switch keyboard. So if you ever need to tone down the clacking of a keyboard, Scissor Switches will always be the kings of silence. Even when going at it like a barbarian in osu!! The ol’ “you’ll get used to it” excuse doesn’t work with osu! with how often you’ll be bottoming out 90% of the time. Rubber domes have that over mechs. They’re naturally comfortable bottoming out. (Props to Topre for getting the best of both worlds be it at a severe premium)

​

(This part can be ignored)

Off topic preachy time :

Use what is comfortable to you. Same goes for cursor control. If you’re comfortable with say, a mouse, keep using it. Equipment low key doesn’t matter. Even just a cheapo sub $5 Dell keyboard can still work for the 2 or so years if at that, of using it in osu!. Same goes for weird shit like RollerMice. If you can use it, and use it effectively, keep using it.

​

Kind of like that famous sniper the “White Death”. Everyone else was using “high tech” equipment, but he absolutely refused to use it as he was really comfortable with his old school rifle. Jokes on his enemies as he knew how to use it better than his enemies knew how to use their own tools.

​

Imo people act like Cherry MX is a one size fits all. It is not. For many people, they’re way to light, leading to the user needing to adapt to their equipment, rather than the equipment blending into the user’s daily routine. You shouldn’t be adapting to a tool that is supposed to make your life easier. It should ALREADY be making your life easier upon implementation. Unfortunately the only real “alternative” for rubber-dome lovers is Topre and their clones. All of which are obviously insanely expensive. So if you ever want a “end-game” rubber dome keyboard, Topre is your best option. But again, super expensive and only for the most hard core lovers of good ass rubber dome keyboards.

​

I’m fickle, I cycle between everything keyboards and switches wise. On the bright side of my insanity, I’m able to give a thorough description on what is available due to me using damn near everything. So if I missed something you might be curious about, feel free to keep the conversation going. The keyboard world is more than just Cherry MX.

​

Fun fact, Cherry is an American company that started production in a basement. They moved production to Germany hoping people would think it was “German Engineering” when they didn’t even come up with it. Needless to say it worked. People embarrassingly don’t check themselves before they reck themselves. Like when people say ALL membrane keyboards are shit despite Bucking Springs over Membrane keyboards existing. Or how people praised the Model M for being the “mother of all keyboards” while ironically saying “all membrane keyboards are garbage”. Pay no attention to the majority. The majority don’t even check what is available, let alone ever gave those options the time of day. Assumptions aren’t results.
