The perfect mechanical kb don't exists?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
hi everyone,
i'm new and i'm from italy.

i've finally decided to change my kb with a new one, actually i have a logitech g11 at my home.

i work as a web programmer (html, js, php, asp, etc...), i play both mmo (wow mainly) and fps (cod, crysis saga mainly) so i will need an all-around keyboard.

after some research i've found that the logitech g110 should be the best choice for me.

than, after more infos, i've changed my mind and now i want a mechanical keyboard, the problem is that i cannot find a totally good one for my needs.

what i'm looking for is:
-mechanical (better black switches but everything not too noisy will be right anyway);
-backlit (i often use my home pc with low lighting);
-multimedia control (perfect with volume roller control);
-wrist rest (perfect if not hard);
-ita or uk layout (at the beginning i decided to go only for ita layout coz on my office and on my notebook i've got that layout, but then i've included the uk layout on my options coz of the really low possibilities with ita layout);
-macro keys (optional);
-blue light (optional).

the best i've found till now is:
-razer blackwidow ultimate (discarded because of the many problems i've heard about razer kb's and because there is not uk layout still);
-tt esports meka g unit (almost perfect and probably the best i've found till now: black switches, media control, macro keys, soon with even ita layout; only problem is the backlit of only some keys instead of all the keyboards);
-qpad mk-80 (good alternative but only with uk layout, without dedicated media keys and lack of macro keys);
-corsair k90 (i hate corsair so much... this keyboard should be perfect for me: blue backlit, macro keys, media keys with volume roller, soft wrist rest, uk layout and probably ita in the future... but there is just a little problem: is not fully mechanical but only hybrid, like i don't use often esc, f1-f12, del, etc...).

something else to suggest with those specs i need? otherwise the tt meka g unit still seems to be the best choice... or maybe i should forget the mechanical possibility and back to the logitech g110

many thanks in advance to everyone will waste time to answer.
P.S.: sorry for my english, not so good at all.

He is a programmer, and if discards those other needs or gets a logitech dinovo for media and backlightning then it should be fine with a torpe keyboard. I hear they "perform" real well, har har har.

well, the k90 seems very good except of the stupid fact that escape, f1-f12, del, ins, and macro key are not mechanical... this sounds a bit stupid to me considering that playing wow i spam f1-f12 and macro keys very often.

corsair will bring out ita layout at the end of this year but i don't want to w8 for a kb that will have 1/3 keys with 1/10 durability of other keys.

seriously if corsair had put black switches instead of non-mechanical that kb should be perfect (they said it was to avoid misclick on edge keys -.-); but i think i will w8 for the meka g unit (out end of october here) and, in the w8ing, i hope to see some review of k90 by customs... just to clearing my doubts.

btw ty everyone even for the song "love the one you're with" but my g11 start to loose some function so it's begin to be a bit hard

Oh, I didn't mean love the G11. Drop that board like it's a $10 hooker.

But here's the thing. Mechanical keyboards are still a relatively small market, and companies can't afford to make 500 models to cater to everyone's individual needs. Add to this that they're still learning what people want what things out of a mechanical keyboard, and it really is kind of unreasonable to expect that there be a board that meets your every slightest wish. *shrug* So pick one that's 90% there and be happy with it--at least until your dream board does come along.

You could start touch typing and not need a wonky backlit keyboard (just a thought). Try out the Steelseries 7g, its got a decent feel to it.
