I'm under the impression the IBM layout is fairly standard, but some manufacturers do vary the matrix design, making different keys block. I have nothing to back up the IBM being standard, but it's not too hard to imagine everyone copying them. Of course there will always be a trade off. If WDE doesn't block, WAQ or something else will probably... I also hear unicomp's is slightly different then the Model M's.

Maybe I'm just bitter because of how painful it was to have a 2KRO when I first started being able to buy my own PC parts. I bought a Saitek Eclipse because everyone online told me it was a great gaming keyboard, and it blocked on several key combos I wanted to use. That was a few months of hell until I was able to save up enough for a Deck Legend, the only keyboard I was able to find that advertised NKRO. (I don't think geekhack was even around then, going by imav's 2007 join date).

Ironically enough the double shift "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy bowser" test gives you an indication of what keys will block.

So what's the difference between membrane and mx blue switches(blackwidow)?
What's better for gaming?
I just bought a Razer Deathadder, they would go well together.

a membrane will be like a rubber cone that makes 2 pieces of metal touch when full compressed..

the whole point of cherry switches is that they make a connection when they are only pressed down 1/3rd of the way, this will improve your reactions in FPS etc.

I have actually just bought a Steel Series 6Gv2 and its great (black switches) it feels very strange to type on as there is no tactile feedback and almost feels like typing on a cloud.

typing on black cherry switches is very strange because when you think you have missed a key or not pressed it down far enough you soon realise it still made contact and types the letter you think you missed.

The normal edition of das is Cherry Blue while the silent ones are Cherry Brown. =)

and it's possible to get Das, it's just outta stock and would only restock somewhere near july... =)

AND regarding the Blackwidow, it's a hit-and-miss, one guy tested 3 Blackwidows and all 3 keyboards had their alt or space key shift and they hit each other when pressed down. So, i'll stay away from the blackwidows specially when they are overpriced.

So blue switches are better for gaming than membrane?

p.s. is there any gaming-keyboard with brown switches, which is available in germany?
post #27 of 44
Personally I use the Black widow and I game quite a bit, I play a ton of SC2, CoD, and other various fps's and have never experienced anything other than a great time when playing. For me they switches are fine, the resistance on each key is perfect for me and as far as build quality goes.... I dont see where the BW is lacking. I mean I guess if you smash your keys down with your fists when you play then I could understand you maybe wearing the keys out or breaking the kb, but other than that its superb for my needs and uses.

The blue switches look amazing. Anyway its not about the lights its whether you are comfortable with it. I use a Razer Lycosa Mirror Special Edition and I love it. By all means if the Blackwidow Ultimate is what you like, don't care for what other people say. Buy it.
