If I where to get it I'm pretty set on browns, tenkey or no? how are you guys liking yours?

It will last you a lifetime. One of the best boards when it comes to build quality.

Do you need the numpad?

It is hard to say if it lasts for five years or more or not, because it hasn't been on sale for that long. Qualitywise it sure feels like it lasts for more than five years. I have a Ducky shine II with browns and it sure feels like it was worth the investment even though I'm a poor student. It is just fun to wake up knowing I can type on my Ducky soon.

Well, I just bought a QuickFire Rapid no more then 2 months ago and I love it, but I want to give the high quality keyboards a try and I really liked the backlit. I also liked the tenkeyless feature of my board but I feel like if I'm going to spend $150 on a keyboard I might as well get the complete package.

What about the LED backlit, I was set to get white but blue would go better with my battlestation. How are the blues on the eyes? I'll be spending 8+ hours a day using it.

I know I'm asking a lot of questions, thanks guys for taking your time to help me.
