    It may not be a Model M, and it may not be designed for gaming, but the TVS Bharat Gold keyboard is one of India’s most popular keyboards due to its great value…but is it still the best without Cherry MX key switches?

      No it's not. Cheery MX switches were patented in America in the 1980s. After the patent expired, other companies, especially in China, began to make ripoffs. Cherry MXs are not ripoffs.

    Takes me down memory lane. Gupta uncle's office (where I was an articled clerk) had the TVS Gold keyboards and I loved the feel and sound of it. But it was beyond my budget so I could only afford the TVS membrane keyboard at home. Fast forward to 3 years ago, when I finally got myself a Cherry Blue Rosewill keyboard that I am still using today and will likely for the next 20 years! On every visit back to India, buying a TVS Gold was something I considered but the price, and the size (luggage limits) stopped me time and again. Now that I know it doesn't have the original Cherry Blue anymore, it is officially off my list.

    Most Colleges, labs and institutions need very strong keyboards that dont break if it falls down or with continous extensive usage . Only Home users who switch off lights and use desktops & gamers in dark need keyboard back lightening.
    when u are in lab or institution or workspace the lights are enough to manage the key boards & the clicky clacky sounds make u try to type faster when its build quality is strong & usage is good for extensive usage, Nothing matters other than that for a commercial entity.

    At least improve your copying skills
    It's written as

    Instead you wrote' I would like to buy one of my keyboard'.
    Moreover in Canada you've got a lot of North Indian population who speaks Hindi so better just ask them for help.

    Kailh switches are arguably better than their Cherry MX counterparts

  • Flerger Bergitydersh
    Flerger Bergitydersh 2 months ago +3

    The knock against the Khail switches is probably completely unfair, actually. I know that their Box switches are definitely of a higher quality than Cherry's MX lineup. In fact, quite a few clones are better than their Cherry MX equivalents in some ways (Gateron uses better plastics, resulting in smoother travel, for example). The lifetime of the switches also tend to be identical, so that's not a factor, either. Therefore, the assumed "decrease in keyswitch quality" is probably unfounded. Cherry's higher keyswitch prices are more clout based than anything, really.
    That doesn't mean this is a good deal, however. It's probably cheaper and less hassle for a lot of people to get something different.

    • Flerger Bergitydersh
      Flerger Bergitydersh 16 days ago

      @BlinkTWICE The main problem with the box switches was that that they were commissioned for a specific type of keycap. The specs weren't changed when retailers began selling them, and a few sets of keycaps didn't agree with the unusual spec of the stem. So it wasn't quite quality control as it was poor planning. After the issue became obvious, they changed the spec and retailers pulled the previous stock from the shelves (at least novelkeys did, afaik). They are now in spec and should not cause problems.

    • BlinkTWICE
      BlinkTWICE 17 days ago

      their main cherry clones are a touch too scratchy and a lot of the earlier box switches had qc issues with cracking caps, but their newer batches are pretty good
