Cheap keyboard advice - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Magna is right. Its a night and day difference, but whether you like it or not is up to you. But im pretty sure 99% of people who have tried it stay with it.
I think from reading you're OP you might wanna consider something with mx brown switches since you want tactile but not clicky. But for that you'r looking at around $80 unless you find one on sale. http://www.tankguys.com/site-merchan...own-abs-1.html

Thanks for the info guys. It is kinda hard to justify so much for a keyboard unless you use it lots. I really wish I had some way of trying one out to find out for myself though.

Rosewill RK-800G Black 104 Normal Keys PS/2 Wired Gaming Keyboard

There you go, and only 14$.

Same quality as any other dome top keyboard and no usless LCD screen to inflate the price by 100$.

you can definitely try a blackwidow at your local bestbuy or computer store. Most of them carry them. If they have both the regular and stealth verions you'd get to try both the blue and brown switches. I think the 6gv2 are a little harder to find though

Good point

I picked up a Keytronic Designer for $30 at amazon the other week, shipping included.
It is a very good keyboard for typing and fine for gaming so far. I would not pay over what I paid though, so look for a sale. Newegg price too high.

Or you could try the really inexpensive mechanical that came out.


This will probably be better than most rubber domes even if alps copy switches. These are clicky though.

My keyboard advice is ALWAYS cheap.

In fact it's free.

See the Newegg KB-800g.

Amazon.com: Classic 104 keys mechanical gaming typing keyboard: Electronics

This will probably be better than most rubber domes even if alps copy switches. These are clicky though.

Just got me one couple days ago from amazon because i wanted too see how the switch's feel and mainly it was just for that reason sense i already have like 6 mechanical keyboards and the most money one i have is a filco ninja tenkeys cherry browns.

And its not a bad board at all ,And too me well worth the 40$ the switch ,s pretty much feels like cherry blues but theses are lighter and doesn't have the double tap problem the blues have so a great switch for gaming, And i really liking them which why im still using the board days after i bought it over my filco lol Pretty much a cherry browns and blues hybrid feel too me lol

The build is low on the keyboard itself and the key caps are pretty thin but so far its holding up on typing and heavy gaming. As long as you don't slam or anything like that i pretty sure it will last a long time.


But ya well worth the 40$ and will beat all the rubber domes for the feel

Now ony if there was a version of these switchs on filcos...

Did it have the clicky alps tho? I thought the filco zero had the non clicky ones.

Never mind just watched a video of one and ya they are clicky, Even tho it seems like they much harder too push than cherry blues, Which with this cheap nock off alps keyboard its easier or about the same too push than my 2 keyboards with blues black widow ut and xarmor ul9. Also have a louder click which i love
