1. its Razer, not Razor

2. the OP specifically lists 3 keyboards with a price range of $40-60, currently Razer has just one keyboard in their lineup that fits that price range, and in all likelihood the the SWTOR keyboard will not be cheaper than $150.

3. judging from the keyboards the OP is interested in it seems clear he's more interested in a mechanical switch than any frivolous gaming features of a blinged out "gaming" keyboard. And considering how much marketing put into the BlackWidow's mechanical switches, the fact that Razer hasn't peeped a word about the SWTOR keyboard's switch type more than likely means it will not be a mechanical board either.

No only does the keyboard you recommend fail to meet what the OP desires in a keyboard, it won't even come close to his price range.

for example the razer blackwiddow is also only 2KRO but has a "gaming optimized matrix" meaning most key combos used for gaming should work. its the more obscure combos that might fail.

$60 for a Model M? You can easily get them for $30-40 on eBay if you put in an hour's worth of time to clean it.

As someone who types on one of those Apple keyboards on a regular basis, I would disagree. However, I would question whether Razer would have similarly high quality scissor switches in their boards.

Off eBay, or in dumpsters.

Seriously, I found about 3 of them the last time my college dumped out old computers.

They don't tend to age well though, the switches wear out quickly.

Thread Starter 
These three are local so I wouldn't have to pay for shipping and will have it tonight. I think with shipping to Canada a 30-40 Model M will work out to cost more.

I assume/hope that D311 is trolling.

I am going to have them side by side so will decide then. I the feel of the M isn't that much more enjoyable feeling I will probably going to go with the AT101W due to the more modern keyboard layout but from what I have read I think the Model M will be the winner.

Thanks for everyone help.
