Recommendation of a good throw around mech keyboard

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Looking for a good LAN throw around mechanical keyboard. Nothing too pricey. Already have a ducky at home and will probably take it most places. This one will mosty be the throw around where I don't care what happens to it. Any suggestions? Will mostly be playoff Starcraft 2

http://www.frys.com/product/5980374?...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG I can get this from my local frys for 63$ price matched on newegg. I played around with it for a bit. Enjoyed it. Does anyone have any opinions on this one?

Also tried the razer black widow. I dislike blue switches for doubble tapping

Please and thank yous

You read my mind. I was gonna recommend him a Poker x also. Small, lightweight and very portable but you'd have to press combination of keys to get function keys to work tho. If OP doesn't mind that then it's perfect.

I do press multiple keys at the same time in Starcraft:/ the poker does look nice though!

Edit- I really don't use function keys though that much. Misread what you posted

How much is the poker?

Would that be better than the siig? I really don't want to spend that much on a nice keyboard. One that I wouldn't mind if I dropped. Or had to slam my fist on if you know what I'm talking about *nerdrage*
