So the answer for blue/white backlit is unknown then(next year probably).

What about the videos, would it be possible to get that?

I'll see about doing a video myself. I have one from before, though it's not exactly "quality" since it was just shot from a digi-cam.

 

As for ETA, yes most likely next year, since it is December right now.

Thank you, it would be great to get a quality video of the backlit.

I guess it wouldn't be possible to get the 'sound comparison' video though.

Shines with red backlit are out!

MX Blue
MX Brown
MX Black

I'd like to take browns or blues (leaning towards blues, though I wonder if they'll be okay for gaming and if they won't annoy the hell out of my relatives). I type a lot, though I game a lot as well... Although I see typing more as a more important activity because gaming often requires to press WASD and another 3-5 buttons tops.

Anyway, the shipping to my country costs $42, so it's $197, which is incredible money around here. I don't know if I'm going to take it, as I only have $80 of my own money - borrowed another $80 already...

Tator Tot, I still would love to see that HD video though.

P.S. How do you get discount codes for TankGuys?

blues are VERY loud. I had a blue board before and did not like it because I had a hard time typing at night while my wife was trying to sleep... and our room is down the hall from the office. It was that loud... I have browns now and I love them. I would go browns over blue especially if you plan on doing some gaming. Blues are good if you live alone and just want a typing experience.

Woah, that is LOUD!

Actually the reason I'm wondering which ones to take is because I've heard that blues have much better typing experience than browns, which reflects both in speed and in comfort. Could they possibly have been loud because of the keyboard you had, or that makes no influence (I think it doesn't)?

Since you have experience with both, could you compared the typing experience?

my camera has the hardest time with indoor lighting... has AMAZING PQ outdoors... indoors makes me want to stab my eyes.. but i tried anyways. I had another video already, but I tried a second one. Here are both for you.

honestly the typing experience felt the same. I cant notice a whole lot of a difference. They are both tactile but the blues make the click noise. The blues have a 50g actuation force and the browns have 45g. You cant go wrong with either for typing, but I think browns might be better for gaming. Trying to game with a clicky keyboard = no fun. It would be fine for RTS games or something like that, but if you play shooters I would stay away from blues. Tried blues, blacks, and browns. I have no regret at all with the browns, my wife has even fallen in love with this board wink.gif

Thank you, the keyboard looks amazing - I love the lighting modes.

The browns seem to work just a little bit louder than my current membrane keyboard, which is a good thing. I wonder how that would be compared to blues though, as in this video I can't notice much difference, except that the guy's typing around 20-30% faster:

Well I game with headphones, so the sound doesn't make difference to me. The only time when my headphones are off is when I'm typing. And I do play all kinds of games, rarely RTS though. Maybe because there aren't many good ones nowadays, or they eat an insane amount of resources (like Shogun 2 for example).
