I feel that off of your responses, I haven't done a great job of figuring out what to get, so I'm just looking for the best value. I am starting to like that Rosewill more and more.

Oh, and Tbag, I really, really, really hate your username. It bothers me.

Rosewill doesn't make a TKL so what size do you really want? Or your not so sure? Have you looked at the cooler master quickfire? You could get the reds version and still have enough for a set of pbt caps with your 150 budget. Or real close.

Wow, good thing we get our Filcos here than in the US smile.gif they go for about 120 USD after currency exchange.

And quality-wise, the Filco is definitely better. Really is. The Ducky isnt as good but it is cheaper.

I say go for the Ducky tbh. The price difference is too huge. It it really is 150 to 80.

All good, I thought it was referencing...it doesn't offend just... Yup.

On the Rosewill not making a TKL, That's alright, I just would prefer to not have it. I'm still debating on the switch type though... Grr. For typing and gaming what's best. Obviously this could depend, but generally. Also, noise wise, how loud are blue's. Blue's would be perfect for me, and I'm probably exaggerating the noise level, but would it keep someone up twenty feet away from me?

The Filco Ninja TKL looks good... Also, the Rosewill doesn't have a key puller. How hard would it be to make my own?

if you have a paperclip, you have a keypuller

Well that's nice to know on the key puller.

I understand that red switches need about 45g to push, and that black need about 60g to push. Is there anything that I could compare that too. I'm trying to figure out the chance of hitting a stray key or what not with reds vs. blacks.

try going to a fry's electronics store near you if you have one. ask them to open a mionix zibal 60 box and a corsair k90 box for you to test some keypresses with and youll see the difference between black and red. personally i like red over black for all situations
