I don't use a keyboard when I play osu! =P but my friend liked my MX Black board best. (I think) because after playing osu with it he said he wanted to get MX Blacks after trying a few boards.

Thoughts? Anything better with backlit possibly?
BTW Im adding rep to helpful users, I really want to make a purchase tonight. biggrin.gif

i know you ended up with the WASD board, but i just wanted to chime in. I recently bought this Filco last week, and after a weekend i can't imagine myself using another keyboard
it just feels so much more sturdy and is a joy to game on. I had the Adesso MX Blue which was fine for typing, but a PITA for gaming. Now with my Filco with the red switches and soft landing pads, i can type fast, and gaming doesn't hurt the hand anymore.

I am awaiting my new MECH keyboard. I won a OCN Ducky off the last giveaway. I asked Chipp if he could send me one with blue switches. My Deck with browns is great, but now I wanna try blues.

Try out the Cherry MX Blue's. That's what I use to play Stepmania, works fine for me. Although it might not since you have to let the keys travel above the actuation point which is roughly just a tiny bit half way.

My design was inspired by Super Famicom Controller: (everything else was just random/Experimental)

....When I bought it used, I was under the impression it had Browns. Oh well. Still a good solid keyboard.

Main difference between blacks and browns is less click right?? Maybe less tactile??

Now I am even more excited to get my new board

EDIT: According to this page my board has Clear switches. The "Code Number" is the same as my boards Model Number.

Man, now I feel like a noob.
