What mechanical Keyboard fits me the best - Page 5

post #41 of 53
I decided upon the steel series 7g, its worked brilliantly so far. Its got a sweet hub, and the ps/2 is more responsive than any usb keyboard. For the money, its definitely the best mech keyboard out there in my opinion, and fits your criteria aswell. If its a little steep on price, try the 6gv2. Its very similar i believe, operating in the same way etc.

the 6gv2 has black switches , those are good for fps gaming but not for typing/other types of gaming

Lot of people of this forum should have deal with them and actually I'm surprise that I'm the first to tell you to check the site. Anyway they are cheaper with starting price but remember you have to add V.A.T., there is a radio button for that somewhere in the page, and the shipping is probably more expensive.

The Keyboard Company is a great vendor. Geekhack is safe now so you can go to the "International Shopping Links" (can't remember what it was called off the top of my head) Wiki. Credit to Ripster for that. There should be a list of European vendors there.

Switches are based on personal preference. I love the blues. The tactile bump and click are a great combination. Don't be turned off by the people who say blues suck for gaming. Some people experience the double tapping issue, some don't. Browns are great too. The feel like the blues just with a slightly different feel to the bump (because it's not two separate pieces, just a mold) and almost silent. Blacks drove me insane. You need to apply a lot of force to push them down. It's good for people who make lots of mistakes by making it more difficult to press keys but I feel like the amount of force you need to apply is uncomfortable. Reds were a much better alternative. Topres are great. They're extremely smooth. I feel a bit of mushiness though but merely any so I'm not bothered by it. Movement is very smooth.

There are a lot of great brands. Filco, Leopold, Das, Cherry, CMStorm (Quickfires are great keyboards), Steelseries, Razer (Blackwidow is okay in build quality but there's better. It's great for the price though), Deck, Rosewill (not really at the top), WASD, Ducky, and quite a lot of others. Filcos are great keyboards (check my sig). I have a Filco Majestouch Black which is basically a Japanese version of the Filco Majestouch Ninja but with a JIS layout. It didn't have a ping issue until my sister's friends starting smashing the keys (kept it in its box for a couple of months after that happened. Very unfortunate). I don't know how many ping but not all of them do.

that sucks, the best chance you would have would be stores selling the bigger brands like Corsair, Coolermaster, and Razer. Each of the brands do carry a specfic switch, like Corsair -MX Cherry Reds, and the Razer with their MX Cherry Blues. The plus would be to try out the switches themselves to get some hands on expereince on them.

Whether black switches are good for what ever is a matter of personal preference.
post #49 of 53
If you're not dead-set on those particular switch types, I have a couple of recommendations you may wanna look at.

Corsair K90 = cherry reds (takes a bit of use for typing, as they are very easy to press, and in the beginning I found myself hitting multiple keys at once. Has backlights and dedicated media keys, and a set of macro keys on the side. very sturdy construction, heavy, and the keys are off-set and easy to clean under.has a full wrist rest.

also the azio levetron mech 4, i have not personally used it, but it was the 2nd keyboard I was considering when I bought mine. removable numpad for 10keyless/move to other side for macros. uses cherry blacks.

I personally am a gamer, and do alot of typing in forums and whatnot, and am more than satisfied in my k90. it is my only mech keyboard so far, so I can't speak on how it measures against others.

I want a keyboard thats has the looks of a filco / das (sound and feeling to) but that is still able to "preform" when gaming
