Honestly, those are regular keyboards sold as gaming keyboards. There's a difference.

No they aren't. They both use MX black switches, and therefore are mechanical.

They also provide NRKO, unlike the BW


Something like logitech keyboards are regular keyboards sold as gaming.

i respectfully disagree. just because those are mechanical keyboards does not make them gaming keyboards. it might well be the case that mechanical keyboards are generally preferable to, say, logitech keyboards. some might prefer cherry black over cherry blue or brown switches. and software might permit creative key mapping. but in the end the steelseries keyboards are just that: mechanical keyboards. i'm not saying they're bad, but nothing particularly geared towards gamers (except the steelseries brand).

for my money, a gaming keyboard must at least incorporate macro keys and backlit keys. you may now commence with eyeball rolling. i'll be gaming...

Backlighting looks childish and macros you can use sharpkeys for

Also the steelseries keyboards provide NKRO, unlike the BW, which makes them a lot more suitable for gaming than the gimmicky BW.

That is your opinion, many users value backlighting. I prefer a keyboard with backlighting due to the fact that I like to game in low light or no light conditions. Also, having dedicated macro keys is more convenient than using sharpkeys imo.

They're still definitely more "gamin" oriented than the BW, counting the black switches and the NKRO.

oh man... sometimes I wish there were -reps on this board.

wow, that's a lot of venom. i make one observation and get jumped on. i understand you and de-zant don't agree with me. that happens sometimes on teh internets. ./shrug

anyway, thanks OP for the heads up. hopefully the CM boards will be a bit more wallet friendly than the mionix.

The mionix looks nice, and is probably worth the money if you want those features. A gaming keyboard is of course a gaming keyboard if you think it is. Even a normal stock membrane could be a gaming keyboard to some people. I wouldn't consider a membrane keyboard which is not mechanical to be a gaming keyboard. Just because I consider membrane boards lesser boards.

The most important thing about a gaming keyboard (which is the same thing as a gaming controller) is the feel. If someone were to hand me a big clunky controller with a lot of extra buttons that wouldn't be my choice over a smaller more comfortable version. In the same way, mechanical keyboards are considered by many to be more comfortable gaming devices. In the end, its about the feel and comfort of the board.

I do agree however with the above poster that macros are nice. But, then again I am taking the comfortable controller over the one with more buttons. If I can get both, well then that's something to consider. I like the Mionix board myself.
