Need sugestions for a new keyboard. - Page 6

post #51 of 66
I would recommend a board from Elitekeyboards.com

Red switch with dampening pads (that you can easily install) is a good choice. The red switch is particularly good for gaming, and typing especially with the dampening pads to soften the noise of bottoming out. You might want to think about a tenkeyless board to save space, and I think you have both options at Elite. Other options are just trying boards from Amazon, and taking advantage of their take-back RMA policy. You could just try a few, and then send them back to make sure you find the switch/board you want.

I recommend trying a few through Amazon first. Based on the money spent it makes a lot of sense to take the safe route as your first mechanical purchase can be difficult to make. All the switches feel differently, and all the boards feel a little different. It's best not to mess around with keyboards you can't RMA. Good luck!

Have you tried blues? I just ordered a board and had never tried any mechanical keyboards. I went to best buy where they sell the razer black widow. It has the arrow keys exposed so you can fell the switches. I took it one step further and took it out of the box. I was dying to try something before I made my order.

For me the blues were a little to clicky and they had like a high pitched squeak almost. So I went ahead and ordered a WASD with browns. Haven't gotten it yet. But I felt like browns would be a nice middle of the road switch. Didn't want to get blacks.

I got it from here. It's released in Asia already, so you can get from any retailer in Asia that ships internationally.

so, there goes your theory.
Relax man, it's great your's doesn't ping. I was just saying how having a plate helps reduce pinging, I never said a PCB mounted board would all have pinging issues.

You sure switch up your responses a lot.

And FYI, just to be a grammar nazi... Not every s needs an apostrophe before it.


And to OP, most people buying them from pchome are buying the red switch version. Red switch CM aren't coming to the US.
