Apparently the Stealth has 34 programmable keys and as far as hard touch vs. soft... I dunno... They feel fairly stiff to me. All I know is that this thing is Blue. I'd at least check the specs on it from NewEgg or someplace if you'reconsidering the Stealth. I think it's a decent board that looks pretty cool. Also, I got it used from a local OCN'er for $30. My Sidewinder is in the closet (literally, not metaphorically).

Looks good, it should work well for you, I think that it looks ugly. Reminds me how ugly my laptop is.

You looked into the corsair K90, It's semi Mech and once you go Mech you will never go back.

For $60-$80 I can't think of anyway you can get all three of those features in a mechanical keyboard considering they pretty much all start at $70 with the regular razer blackwidow

If you are fine with a membrane keyboard though, you can try out the microsoft sidewinder X4. Has the macro keys and backlighting but I'm not sure if it has light touch buttons. Plus its only $45 on newegg:

EDIT: Never mind, I forgot things go on sale like with your ttesports keyboard

Please dont get the sidewinder had it for over a year now. The palm rest bit is terrible becuase of the material and surface type it is, it starts to smell REALLY bad like sour vinigar. i.e sweat if you are gaming alot cause of the hard grain sweat will get trapped in it im currently looking for a new keyboard to replace it becuase it drives me crazy.

I ended up getting the k90 while it was on sale. Took a bit to get used to, but I think I'm liking it now. I still dont get people who say they would never use a membrane keyboard again though. I can tell a difference for sure, but I have no problem with the other keyboards that I have though, nor the keys on the k90 that aren't mechanical.
