Mechanical Keyboards For Gaming - Page 2

post #11 of 57
I just got a Filco Majestouch 2 tenkeyless with brown switches a few weeks ago and absolutely love it. Typing feels great on it and the build quality is amazing as well. I game a lot and although it lacks the macro keys and whatnot that some people swear by and I have never used that doesnt really bug me.

Pretty much every post above me has talked about keyboards I considered getting before I got this one and i don't personally think anyone has made a bad recommendation so far. But I'm just throwing in my $.02 that Filcos are great tongue.gif

However, Hong Kong is so much easier to shop at because at the electronics market in my city, it is hard to find what you are looking for...

Why thank you.

Hence, the avatar.

I was just looking on taobao and I found this... Which is a new Ducky DK9008, and it comes with all of the extras and what not too... Also, I was looking at getting it with the MX-Black switches (as I have heard that those are the best for gaming) and that costs ~$90 (US)... I think that sounds pretty good...

AFAIK Ducky boards have detachable USB's which I am personally a fan of. I've seen complaints of Ducky build quality issues (specifically their 1087 model), but honestly I don't really think that it's going to kill you. It just comes down to what brand you want.

Lolwut? Majestouch 2's don't ring any more than Majestouch 1's. That's a totally sporadic issue.

Anyway, poor Ducky build quality is well documented at geekhack.org. check out the reviews section.

Many issues at Geekhack are blown out of proportions.

Pretty ironic referencing to the ping problem that was pretty much "blown out of proportions".

ummm... I was just checking out a lot of black switch based keyboards and I found that the Steelseries 6gv2 comes in at around the same price point as the Ducky DK9008... I know that Steelseries is regarded pretty high up as far as gamers are concerned, it is my friend's favourite brand for that stuff... However, how is it regarded for mechanical keyboards? How does the 6gv2 compare to the DK9008, both of which have MX-Black's...

From my understanding the Steel Series boards are of a lower tier than Leopold and Filco, so probably similar to the Ducky.

I found a Filco Majestouch with MX-Black's for ~$100 (US), and is only about $10 than the Ducky DK9008 or the Steelseries 6Gv2... So since everyone is saying that the Filco's are pretty top stuff, I think the $10 premium isn't too much to pay tongue.gif...
