backlit mechanical keyboards.

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
I am on the hunt for a backlit mechanical keyboard that will last (if I'm spending $100+ on a keyboard it better last) and all I know of is the raser BWU the deck legend and the xarmor series. Am I missing any?

Just the Mionix Zibal 60 ... shown here.


I didn't like the board much, but I guess its possible that it could out last the BWU, and Xarmor. The back lighting isn't green, but actually yellow. So did let the pics fool you. It's basically the Meka G1 so it should have that type of quality. It has black switches available only. Just came out a week ago or so.

The Deck is the best out the one you listed. Best keycaps, won't wear out. Higher quality plastic, and best LED's. It has the best value even with the higher price. There is no comparison. Although, a lot of people don like the flat profile of the Deck (with the keys), and the ugly design of the font, and the board's overall design.

It isnt out of my price range but I really like the audio ports on the BWU. thats really what Im debating over right now. I just wanted to know if I had any other options thanks.

Just so you know the BWU won't age that well, the black is just a coating on the keycap so as it goes your letters just become a lighted blob.

If your looking for the audio ports, the Mionix Zibal 60 has them too. I think it is worth considering that keyboard. It has black switches so far more quieter than the BWU, and the LEDs are green, not yellow. Look at Features for proof.

I would prefer blue LEDs on my keyboard and also cherry mx blues, browns, or clears, but not blacks because I will be using this to write papers as well.
