Gaming kayboard with low profile (laptop) keys

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have used a Loigitech Illuminated keyboard for a while, and i love the low style keys on it, its been great for typing and gaming, but its not a gaming keyboard, and i need a new keyboard, so i need some tips for a new one.

it HAS to be low profile keys, i dont like high keys at all.

I know of;

Razer Lycosa - a gaming keyboard with low profile keys, however i have read that someone have some issues with it.
Loigitech Illuminated - which i have, but its not a gaming keyboard
Saitek Eclipse Litetouch - Not directly a gaming keyboard, but it looks nice, and have low profile keys..


So, anyone who know of some gaming keyboard with low profile keys?

The Deathstalker (not ultimate) is coming out...same keyboard as the SWTOR keyboard but black with an actual # pad instead of the switchblade interface.

Depends what do you define a 'gaming' keyboard? Does it need macros? NRKO or Antighosting? Would help a bit.

Saitek's are awful. A buddy of mine uses the Lycosa and loves it. I personally feel you should go mechanical and put rubber o-rings on it to shorten the throw so you get a higher quality board that has the feel you'd like.

That's just my personal opinion.
