Ok back to basics, is there anything I should know before buying?

Thanks

Nope.

If you drop the Tenkeyless requirement the XArmor U9BL-S meets all the others. If you drop the backlit requirement the Noppoo Choc Mini would fit (it's not PS/2, but it has a controller that bypasses most of the issues that most USB keyboards have).

I think I may take a couple of hits and just press buy on this bad boy.

That is quite possibly the coolest keyboard ever and I'd even be willing to kill off the light requirement.

What do you think?

That is such a sick board. They have it in MX blues on keyboardco as well. They also have a red one with brown switches.

Gasp. Interesting color is interesting. Good to see they finally started offering the Click Action keyboards in the States.

I just placed my order. I've been wavering over getting a Filco, Leopold, or Ducky. I saw the blue and really liked it, so that cemented it for me. $159 shipped. Keyboardco has both the brown an blue switches on Amazon. I ordered the brown switches.

Someone please tell me I won't regret this. My current keyboard has a broken space bar (Saitek II). This one will last for a very long time, right?

First of all I've never had a Filco but they are supposedly the toughest out of them all so that should be your last concern.

I primarily game, and game /w fps so the switch type is the only real issue as I've never tried browns.

I have tried blues, wonderful for typing.

Clears would probably be my safest bet but I really don't want that Deck. Any other brand with clears?
