Do you play games on your MX Blue Switches, if so how do you find it?

I was going to get a WASD keyboard, but they don't have a tenkeyless board. If I was set on a full sized keyboard, I would have went with WASD. My desk is kind of weird on the sliding keyboard tray.... so I would be typing on the left side of my monitor with a full sized keyboard, so I went with a Filco mx blue TKL board so I can type closer to center. Plus, I like that my hands are closer together between the TKL board and mouse... when gaming.

I don't have any issues gaming with MX blue switches... but then again... I just built my first gaming computer, so I haven't developed any habits gaming on a keyboard.tongue.gif

They have their own sub forum on geekhack where you can speak directly with them.

Ah, thanks for the info.

Yeah, I like having a numpad, makes typing long numbers easier. Thanks for your input.

the razer lycosa is a rubber dome keyboard that uses cheap keycaps that have a thin layer of rubber (or maybe its plastic) over them. this material wears off very quickly from extended use, and i would not recommend this keyboard. The board you are talking about that has different colors for the individual backlit keys is probably the razer maurauder, also a junky, gimmicky rubber dome. you might have also seen a logitech board that has different colors, however all logitech boards are rubber dome, and the OP is inquiring about mech boards.
