Same but I just wanted to go with something with great reputation and good build quality. Would love to have a back light but most of those I can't take serious.
I want a full size keypad, I don't see the logic of saving $10 and not have a keypad, I can get an additional one but between not being mechanical and the minimal savings between shipping and taxes. I like having a keypad, I use it a lot in passwords and in some of them I have a pattern.
Razer steath is one of the better ones atm, back lit and full mechanical, has macros.
CM storm full size one with red switches has questionable style.
Corsair one is really nice but has some rubber dome keys, I am going to go all in.
I want red switches and most of the so called gaming keyboards either cut corners to save, cheesy styling, questionable reliability.
