otherwise you can find older IBM keyboards on EBAY where people either dont know they are mechs or just dont mention it and you get them cheap..

Depends on what you want. With the Max keyboard you'll get the USB ports and audio, but I'm fairly certain that the overall build quality and backlight quality goes to the ducky.

maybe $40-$50 range would be ideal.

The Ducky 1008XM and 1087XM are around $50. However, they use Alps switches, not Cherry MX.

That is a nice looking board. But if you like the feel of red switch you need cherry. If you like blue, the other options may be ok. All are better than rubber smile.gif
Nice looking it is, but I don't like that big bump on the right shoulder, or the wrist rest. Their foam wrist rest looks nice though.

At that price the Ducky Shine II (or Dragon) will blow it away. It is a beautify board. Look up, you will see I posted a video of it at Computex. But you may want to look at the Rosewill, i-Rocks and i-one boards just for more options and to make your choice harder wink.gif They all have videos in my Computex coverage.

Just go to the classified section of geekhack, there are plenty of used and new keyboards up all the time.

Look down. Now back up. You're on a forum, with the man your man could surf like.

What's in your hand? Now back to me. Look what I have. It's 7 tabs of porn open on the computer you love.

LOOK AGAIN. THE TABS ARE NOW DIAMONDS.

Anything is possible when your man surfs OCN, and not porn. I'm on a horse.
