Requesting Assistance In Choosing A New Keyboard

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I built my computer a few months ago, and I've finally decided that I should probably upgrade my keyboard. Currently I'm still using the generic Dell keyboard that came with my last computer, and using it for gaming is making me very sad. I've been looking at several keyboards, but I seem to be over my head when selecting a keyboard, since I've never bought one. I figured this would be a good place to look around for advice.

I was looking at a couple of keyboards and these are the ones that I came up with so far:

Logitech G110 - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002RRLQIO/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=tripwiremagaz-20&linkCode=as2&camp=217145&creative=399373&creativeASIN=B002RRLQIO

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Challenger Ultimate - http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Challenger-Ultimate-Keyboard-KB-CHU003US/dp/B004M3ECFU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1325727429&sr=8-1

I was looking at a few Razer keyboards as well, but I question the quality of their keyboards so I'm pretty skeptical.

So to generalize, this is what I'm looking for:

-Primarily for gaming, with some typing
-Price range around $150 or lower (preferably available on Amazon (USA))
-Backlights
-Macro keys (not any particular number)


Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The G110 is great (i'm using it) but I heard that not getting a mechanical keyboard is a no brainer, take a look at the Razer Blackwidow.

For what you're looking for, the Corsair K90 is probably the best option. You can find it on Amazon or at Fry's, Best Buy, Office Depot, etc.

Thanks for suggesting the Corsair K90. I would have never even heard of it since there aren't a lot of reviews for it. For now its the frontrunner for the keyboard I'll eventually buy.
