I just got my new Realforce 87u 45g a week ago, all I can say is that I don't see me using my MX keyboards anytime soon. I was worried before I bought one because I use my computer a ton for games, but the 45g has the best feel out of any keyboard I've used. I liked MX browns for Starcraft 2 but never really liked my MX reds, so I was worried that I might not like the Realforce after such a big investment. After talking with some people on the fourms and not being able to control my keyboard addiction I decided to give the 45g Realforce a try. In Starcraft 2 I've tried many MX switches but with that game I was only comfortable with browns. Using the Realforce I instantly felt comfortable and love that I still get the tactile feedback. Bottoming out on the Realforce feels much better compared to the other MX keyboards I own, and I prefer typing on the Topre switches more than MX blues. It's only been a week so far and I'm very...very happy with my purchase, I do wish the 87u was a bit cheaper though so others could give them on try.

I also modded my Razer Abyssus LED to match the green Topre keyset, the bad picture doesn't really give the setup justice. I swapped the switches out for some Omron D2F-01F's but that's more of a story for the people in the Mice forum.

Quick question. My quickfire's space bar likes to resist coming back up a little if I'm pressing it gently. Nothing horrible, but slightly noticeable. Anything I can put on the switches to remove the friction a bit?

a very very tiny drop 3 in one oil should help.

Actual parsley.

So she got called parsley for a couple of years.

That is the end of the story.

It's not bad. But I like the Ducky more.

The K90 has more noise to it. It's more "clacky". The Shine dampens the sounds better.

Both keyboards have their pros and cons.

I do however find it easier to type on the Ducky.
