Hey all ...

I am about to order my first mechanical keyboard and unfortunately only have 2 options ... ..

Coolermaster Quick Fire or
Steel series 6gv2 ...

Which of these 2 are better ... both have black switches ...


It's either those or 2 non mech ...

Razer Lycosa or
Roccat Isku (again)



All info will be appreciated .. +rep to fast repliers that give good info
Kind Regards

Does it have to be one of those two? If so I'd probably be inclined to get the CM Storm because it has NKRO vs the Steel Series' 6KRO

Well I will be using both keyboards via USB which means that the NKRO wont be in effect if I understand correctly ... so they are the same with regards to that and the prices are just a couple bucks apart

Unfortunately those are the only choices I have as the rest jump in price to scary amounts and I can't get duckys in my country ... These are R750 and the next mech KB is over R1000 ...

Well you could get a Model M like myself. I got mine for like $35 on Ebay and I'm sure there's more of them. This keyboard is built like a freakin' mountain and is the best typing/gaming experience I've had on any keyboard.
