I'm guessing Year of the Snake is due to come out in the next few months?

I want to get a Ducky but I'm not sure on what switches to get. I find the blues in the blackwidow to be okay, but being as someone who is mostly a gamer I was leaning towards reds, but I've read browns are also pretty good... /firstworldproblems

Well, we're all first-world people. It happens. wink.gif

I'm on browns, I think it is a good switch for gaming/typing. Word is that blacks are the best for gaming, but not really good for typing, and reds, which are lighter blacks.

Browns have tactile feedback!

I agree on browns. Tactile bump aside, Reds are lighter and Blacks are heavier, brown being the sweet spot for a lot of people.

Blues are a completely different type of switch, having an extra moving part.

I love blues and I play games just fine with them. I actually don't like the feeling of the reds (I have both) and right now trying to get rid of it. I guess I just love feedback which linear switches don't have.

Oooh, mine does that too, I didn't know that.

p.s. what USB hub is that?

It's a Belkin ultra-slim aluminum USB hub (Black variety) (F4U041) (Still plastic, but a nice quality feeling kind). I tried several different models but this is the one that fits and works perfectly. It's been running for a few days now and is still working great! I attached it using some simple housebrand double sticky tape. I can lift the keyboard by it, so it's not going to come off any time soon. wink.gif

The cabling I use is Lindy Cromo. Awesome cables. I used the 0.5m variant for under the keyboard. Had to make an extra loop, but then it worked perfectly. I wanted to have a HUB with a modular cable which was hard to find, but after a while I found this one and it works great. For the HUB connection I have 1m, 2m and 3m cables so that I can hook it up in any situation. Sometimes at a LANparty you'll need a longer cable.

And this way it's one cable, and my keyboard and mouse works (receiver is in the hub) and plugging in an USB stick or something is also working fine. After that you run into power problems and maybe need to connect the included adapter. But that goes past my own wishes.

If you have any more questions, please let me know! Also be sure to look at my photo album in the previous post because it includes a lot more photos!

I went from Razer BlackWidow Blues to MaxKeyboard Nighthawk X9 Reds.

Much prefer the Reds, feel smooth and are quiet. I guess for typing the Blues might feel better if you like the feed back, but I'm not a hunt and peck kind of typist - generally you can feel when you make a mistake.

I went with reds.
