amazing keyboard.

 

i just wish i got the red one not the black switches. But still great/

post #622 of 1084
I have to say, I had a Filco TKL w/ Browns and then got this w/ Blues to be my portable board and absolutely love it so far.

And I wanted a second USB cable to use at my office (since they use a low profile USB jack) and Cooler Master offered to send me one smile.gif

Hey guys. Should I get the browns or reds for gaming? I used the blues before and I did not like it because of the double tap issue.

I'm leaning towards reds at the moment because everyone in this thread has reds and praise how godly it feels to type/game on it. Is reds really that good? I will be about 80% gaming and 20% typing.

I have blacks and I even like those a lot. But if i had a second chance, i would try the reds.

I have only ever tried reds and I see no compelling reason to ever switch (no pun intended tongue.gif). I like how light and linear the Reds are but again I can't speak for any other switches, besides like 2 seconds I spent using a black widow with blues.

I just recently bought this with reds. It has me thinking that reds are underrated for typing. When I'm typing fast I basically just have to touch the key to get it to register, no real need for a bump. I decided on reds over blacks because I have this old electric typewriter siting around here somewhere that has heavy linear switches and I wasn't into it.

I'm also into how the light springs ring a bit while typing.

I also got a filco wrist rest with it, smelled horrible so I returned it and got a cheapo handstands rest that actually stays in place much better.

The difference is very minimal.

I'm actually also looking at getting one of these great looking keyboards. I was planning on getting Blue switches cause I type way more than I game, I'm also a very light gamer (I don't press many keys)

Should I get another switch though? I do about 80% Typing and 20% Gaming

Blues are nice to type on. But they are not for everyone. If you have a store that sells the razer black widow you can try them out as it has keys exposed.

I think blues feel a little cheap. I have heard it described as crinkling plastic at the click lol. That is very subjective. But no one can really tell you what you will like, I have been typing on reds for months and I like them. My favorite would be browns though.

Has CM announced anything about replacing defective key caps on these quickfire rapids? After a week my keys are fading. I haven't sat down at my desk without washing my hands and haven't eaten anything at the desk either so I can't be blamed for this.

Just wanted to check before returning it for a refund. $15 logitech keyboard has no key cap fade or staining, its 3 years old rolleyes.gif.
