So, I’ve had an Ergodox for a few years now with Cherry MX Blues, and when I saw the keyboardio I decided to jump on board and back it (and have been eagerly awaiting it!).
In the last year though I have started dealing with more wrist pain, and have been debating ways to manage it. After getting some money for Christmas, I decided to get an Ergodox EZ, with Gateron White switches, which have an actuation force of 35g±15gf, and no actuation bump. Good Lord, it is beautiful, and having used them fairly extensively, going back to the MX Blue ergodox is like taking a step backwards.
All that to say, I’m a bit worried what will happen when I sit down at my Model 01 with Matias switches that have actuation forces higher even than the MX Blue. With the backlighting, I assume putting in different switches will not be terribly easy? Will the connections even be able to match up with another switch type? Can anyone comment on that?
I’m comfortable with a soldering iron, so I’d be willing to invest the time to change it, but curious to know whether it will even be possible.
