I also think the main reason why I havent taken the plung sooner was because I felt $100+ was more than I was willing to shell out to see if i would love or just like going mechanical. $70 is a great deal I felt and still do after using it. Now to try some gaming!!!!
Honestly though I think since this is my first mech board I could have been happy with any cherry switch. I have been stuck on a crappy oem dell board and previous board was just a backlite rubber dome board. After playing with red, black, and black widow (blue?) switches they all felt so much better I would have needed to just pick one and use it a while to see what I would appriciate about any of the other switches. I think after a week I will truely know how I feel about blue but so far its awesome. The one thing im sure about is that if I decide on another switch Im gonna look to another quick fire board.

I got tired of waiting for the reds to come on the cmstorm website and I bought a cmstorm quick fire from microcenter in blues. The keyboard overall is great, but I was correct with my assumption that I would not like the blues. They are crazy loud.
post #326 of 1084
really I have gotten use to the blues yeah they are loud but not overly loud too me.

not loud enough if i do say so myself
post #328 of 1084
Im in the boat where the blues are audible but dont find them annoying. I kinda like the "click" as it is showing me how much less I need to press the keys, Currently trying to learn to not harshly botttom out the keys which is a much more quiet and smooth experience with typing that I dont think i could have done on rubber domes since they dont offer any feedback. I have previously read about rubber o-ring addons and am curious about it more now that I have a mech board so thats on my list of items to look up tonight biggrin.gif

The reds have been on the cmstore for a couple weeks. Or did you buy that keyboard a while ago.

I'm still waiting for the brown version to drop.

To others with this board, does the F9 button LED light up for you guys? My caps lock and scr lk buttons light up when I press them but my F9 doesn't. I can't tell if it's functional either because I never use F9.

edit: nm found the answer. Have to press FN first to go into game mode.
