What mechanical Keyboard fits me the best

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
Hello

I am using a non-mechanical Keyboard atm and i feel like i really need a mechanical one.
The clicky sound, bigger keys make me wanne throw my cheap keyboard out the window wink.gif
I want a keyboard that is good for gaming but also for regular typing.I do alot of programming
but also gaming (League of legends,...).After alot of reading and looking up, i think MX cherry
blue or brown would be the best for me.


Here is a list a keyboards that seems good:

- Model S Professional Keyboard (http://www.daskeyboard.com/model-s-professional/)
- Razer BlackWidow Stealth Edition (http://store.razerzone.com/store/razerusa/en_IE/pd/productID.235196400/categoryId.56943600)
- Filco Majestouch 2 Tactile Touch NKRO Brown Switch (http://www.gamegear.be/filco-majestouch-2-tactile-touch-nkro-brown-switch-fr-azerty)

The filco looks really good but is very expensive, is it really worth the price (about 200 US dollar , sending included)

If u have other keyboards in mind pls post them ^^

Thanks in advance

Switches are personal preference, so I can't really recommend a specfic type. Filco is great, but I wouldn't recommend the Razer one if you want the clicky sound as you describe.

Yea, the blackwidow seems to have a "crappy" quility build

are the other 2 in the list suitable for gaming/typing?

MX browns are my recommendation. As the clickly-ness of the blues are a turn off by gamers. However i solved this issue on my cm quick fire (mx blues) by using the oring mod.

Browns are light and have tactile feel to it so it is preferred by typers or programers or you can go with mx reds and bottom out like crazy. Mx red are gamer switches they are linear so they let you tether the activation point quickly for double tapping. That is just the general idea.

But overall i think mx browns will suit your needs very nicely.

I understand a lot of people here don't like Razer but the Black Widow Ultimate is a great keyboard. I've used mine about 8 hours a day for the last 8 months or so and I love it. The build quality is not "crappy". Its a good mech keyboard. If I had it to do over again I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Razer BWU. Some people say "don't get mx blues for gaming". Honestly that all boils down to what feels good to you. I love the blues for gaming (which I do many hours a day) and typing in general. I don't know why the other poster doesn't recommend the BWU if you like the clicky sound either. The MX blues in the Razer BWU are the same MX blues used in other mechs. Hence the exact same "clickclack" sound.
