Decided I want a mechanical keyboard. Suggestions? 6Gv2?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I know there are 1 million more threads like this don't kill me for it.

I recently decided I want a mechanical keyboard and I wanted some feedback from you guys before i dive in and buy a random one.

Some idea of what I want:
Budget: 100 Euros (ish) ($140, 86 british pounds)
Tactile: Preferably
Clicky: not really, only if it doesn't make TOO much noise
Lights/other buttons and fetures: irrelevant

I did do my homework and I think I'd prefer something using the MX brown switches and possibly the blacks. Hence I was considering the Steelseries 6Gv2. What do you guys have to say about that particular keyboard?

And what other keyboards would you suggest?

Thx.

At that price range look at Das, Filco, Leopold and as drnilly said, Ducky. Filco goes a little above your price but not by a ton and it will probably be the last board you'll ever buy.
