So I have my full-size. I have my TKL. I have my 68%. I have my 60%. And now for the next step down. I really want to get a 40% but I have to say that I'm a little afraid of getting an ortholinear and not liking it. To try to combat this I was thinking about getting a staggered 40% (JD40, Bantam-44). I know most of these boards are kits that I would have to wire myself and that is another issue. I have never soldered a thing in my life!
All that said; I would love to get some feedback from those that know way more than I on the matter. How do you like the staggered 40% boards. Does that Planck take a lot of getting used to? Any tips for someone just starting out soldering?
Thanks in advance!
