New keyboard advice - would you recommend this one?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Would anyone recommend this keyboard
http://www.amazon.co.uk/TT-ESPORTS-KB-CHU003UK-Challenger-Ultimate/dp/B004P8FFV2/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1333597628&sr=8-10
The tt e sports challenger ultimate.
I want away from my sidewinder 4 as it is driving me insane. The hard grain palm rest smells of vinigar constantly, because when constant gaming the sweat on the rest is getting trapped in the grainy surface anyways moving on from the disgusting tongue.gif

Would anyone recommend that keyboard, what I want really out of the new keyboard is backlighting because I am a sucker for shiny lights and good looking things. I really dislike the look of plain mechanical keyboards etc. Some macro keys, doesnt have to be many and nice feel when typing I.E dont need to push to hard, and last but not least good for gaming ofcourse most keyboard make no difference but sitll you know what I mean.
If anyone can reccomend me one similar to that but better then I will take a look at it.

Also looking at the logitech G110 and the cyborg v7 could go all out on a razer black widow ultimate but Is it really worth an extra £50.

Personally, I use this keyboard. I have never heard of anyone else using it, but I like it.

Thermaltake is a brand that generally does not have the best reputation; not that there products are bad, just that one can do better for the price. You'll probably do better with the G110. I've heard rumors that Razer's QC isn't as good as it was in the past, so the Black Widow might not be worth it. (But that is a rumor so I can't vouch for the accuracy.)

That merc stealth looks awsome and would save me from getting the nostromo becuase its got a mini one built in at the side haha, Do you have any problems with the side add ons working in games like mmos. Would be perfect for binding all the spells to.
Oh and bump for other suggestions.

Have you considered the Corsair K90? It's backlit, has macro keys and mainly uses Cherry MX red switches, with rubber domes on the macro keys (and I think a few others). The best part is it's just under £100, which is great for a feature rich mechanical board. There's also a cut down model, the K60 for about £80, as well as the Steelseries 6Gv2 and others within this price range.

Personally I think if you are looking at spending around £50 on a keyboard it's definetely worth the jump up to Cherry MX switches with the amount of sub £100 boards entering the market.

Merc Stealth's are fairly popular. I'm using one I bought used from an OCN member.

Just looked it up and thats one of the main reasons I am replacing this sidewinder x4 is that they both have grainy textures for the palm rest = sweat getting trapped in and creating horrid smells. So that's out the window tongue.gif The keys do look really nice though.
