Full size keyboard with browns, you have a lot of options.
Ducky, Leopold, Das, WASD, Filco, Noppoo, Rosewill, BWU:S, and PLU are ones that I can think of off the top of my head that offer MX Browns in a full size board.

Thank you, I will check up on those. Do you recommend anyone of them?

Out of those I've owned a BW, Ducky, and Noppoo and they were all good quality. However, I think if I were getting a full size board I would go with a WASD board for three reasons. First, you can customize it however you want. Second, they use Costar stabilizers(I prefer them over Cherry stabilizers). Lastly, their customer service is unbeatable.

Discrucio I think the real problem you should consider is if you want to buy your keyboard in Europe or you have no problem buying it outside from here.
European mechanical keyboard choice is narrow and you can find only few model out there.
For brown switch I'm pretty sure you can only go for

Filco Majestouch
Das Keyboard Silent

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate is only available through Razer site and selling should start by the end of the month.

Ya if you play a lot of Starcraft 2 then blue switches are the way to go because they actuate much faster then blacks. Come to think of it red switches would probably be even better than blues for that. Blacks are more for FPS gaming.

But its not like people but three different mech keyboards for typing/RTS gaming/FPS gaming, you buy what you like and get used to it. Any mech is better than a rubber dome keyboard anyway.

Ya, it is actually the real problem, cause if i had all choices i would go with WASD or Rosewill Brown not doubt. But in Europe i can't even get the Filco without paying for a massive price tag and a huge delivery bill. Same for DAS, but i think that it is more possibly. Most of the Mech keyboards in EU are gaming-branded and ya .... you know

Anyways, I do not won't the Blue switch (only because of sound) and the best contender in Black switches is Meka G1, but there is coming a Corsair model soon with Red ones.

But thanks again for all the answer, you have helped me choose and decide.

Just remember that the new Corsair keyboards are not fully mechanical but have the F-row, Esc, Del key area and macro keys using rubber domes.

The corsair half-mechanical, half-membrane board is suppose to be pretty bad. I don't know what is in the EU market so I can't be of much help there. There are Cherry boards that you can get for cheaper?

I could suggest pchome but it doesn't seem like the best option for a first buy.

Check out qtan's webpage on this forum post:

http://geekhack.org/showthread.php?1...-warranty-info!

I've bought from him before and he is quick to help and you will have a ~1 year warranty as well. He has a few full-size brown boards and some tenkeyless ones for decent prices.
