Corsair k60

This is what I was told by one of the online retailers here

"What I know is that we won't be having the Corsair K60 in stock before they do some better things with it. The build quality doesn't live up to what we want it to live up to"

I wouldn't get a BW, I have used many of them (all my co-workers in my studio I currently work with, have one and like 8 out of 10 of them do not like them, bought because it has back lighting and we got a grp deal... lol. Not enough to oversee the downfalls including the failing keys, the back lighting fading out over time, and bottoming out of the keys, like the key slamming into the backplate...). If you are looking for a SOLID mech keyboard go with a Rosewill RK9000... I couldn't be happier... most solid keyboard I have EVER used. Not an exaggeration what so ever too... lol. Doesnt have back lighting, but you soon learn how to live without it smile.gif I came from a Lycosa, and couldn't wait to break it with a sledgehammer lol...

I know your pain, as I was stuck with my, riddled with problems, Lycosa for like a year and a half... Customer support at Razer shut me down numerous times, even though I had proof of purchase, all for different reasons that had nothing to do with my problem O.o

Rosewill RK9000 FTW!! has mX blues, and types/feels better than any other keyboard I have used smile.gif I thoroughly enjoy typing... hence why this post is overly long for such simple information cool.gif

Don't get the corsair half-mechanical boards. That isn't something we should be supporting with our money.

CM storm quick fire is the best of those by quite a bit. You can get it for $100-110 USD shipped on PCHome already if you can't wait. The price will be between $80-90 when it actually hits the US/EU. Personally I didn't feel like waiting so I got the mx red version as soon as the 2nd batch popped up and then sold out. The board will also have the 4 main cherry switches to choose from.

The blackwidow is probably the best entry board since deals show up and can cut the price down to $55-65. I still use mine once in a while.

CM Quickfire. Do not accept less than best, since mechanical boards are with you for very long time.

Hearing a lot of bad things about the k60 and bw, guess I'll wait for the quickfire then.

Although it will take me time to adjust to having no numpad, I think I'll survive.

You can always get a usb numpad. I prefer the size of the tenkeyless boards, puts the mouse in a more comfortable location in relation to the keyboard imo.

I'm pretty interested in the K60, I couldn't give a crap less if the F keys aren't mechanical. I can't even fathom why keys you press once a week at best matter. If there are build quality issues though I might steer away from it.

All I know is my BW is making me rage in FPS games because the number keys NEVER work when I press them, its always delayed and by varying amounts each time. I've had it take up to 10 seconds to register a number hit. My old $16.99 microsoft special was better.

Because some people use the F keys more than once a week. Looking at the shine on my keyboard, my F5 and Esc key are shiny as hell. Del, Home and End are as well. My media keys are sparkling. F4 isn't too worn out, a bit more than 1 through 3. F6 through 12 are rarely used in my case.

Lets say you use them a few times a day then. Does that warrant having cherry reds or whatever your preference of switches is? Do you really need precise tactile feedback to refresh your webpage with F5? My point was, its kind of silly to discount a product solely because of that. If the keyboard is crap anyways, well thats a different story. I like the design and wrist-rest, I guess I will wait for it to be out and see a few reviews. I might have to go pick up another microsoft $16 special though to get me there.

No, I want Cherries so part of my keyboard doesn't fail me in a few years time.
