I beg to differ. Why do you need a mechanical keyboard for gaming? Some prefer the tactile response, sure, but it's hardly a necessity. Backlighting for gaming in the dark and macro keys are both much more useful. The display on the Logitech keyboards is also a nice touch (allows me to administrate my ventrilo channel in game). I'm not going to say keyboard like the G19 are worth their price and don't have their fair share of gimmicks, but saying something like "there's no such thing as a gaming non-mechanical keyboard" is pretty shallow-minded.

All non-mechanical keyboards use the same rubber domes. A $5 Compaq keyboard, and a $170 Logitech G19. Anything labelled as "gaming" is using the same thing as the $5 keyboard. You can add a screen and macros and claim it's a gaming keyboard, but the keys are still the same. Mechanical keyboards have different switches based on the type of usage you want out of them.

I'm assuming you've never owned a mechanical keyboard, as that's the only way I'd see you claiming this. If you have used a mechanical keyboard what switch type and what were you doing on it to give you the impression it wasn't better?

I'm selling my G19 because I went mechanical. There's no comparison in the quality, the mechanical is far superior in every way.


IMO - Just get some cheap keyboard or keep your current one until you can save money for the deck.

Not quite true, some will use higher quality rubber but still the absolute highest I've ever seen a rubber dome keyboard rated for was 10mil keystrokes which is a 5th of the life of a mechanical.
