post #21 of 41
i did alot of reading about this im very picky ;p and i decided to get a ducky shine with browns to go with my next build , browns because i wanted the feel of blues without the noise

What issues? I'm using the first gen? standard Blackwidow with the blue keys, and have had no problems so far (edit:bought the keyboard ~1 month after its release). Also, I personally find the sound of browns to be a nuisance, and blues to be something I like/don't mind. Maybe that will help you choose. overclock.net also has their own mechanical keyboards (I don't know where the thread is), with each being ~$120

Browns don't feel like blues.

Razer Blackwidow. Either Ultimate or Standard. You'll be fine with Blues if you type a lot. Its actually nice sounding and feeling on my Ultimate. I love the blue glow to match my setup. I have had 0 issues with this keyboard so far and I game and type a lot.

Is there any benefit to the Ultimate apart from the backlighting?

Because I just found out I can get the Ultimate much cheaper than I first thought, but still £30 more expensive than the non-ultimate. I don't really need backlighting, as I've been using my Arctosa for over a year. Another thing that concerns me is that the coating technique used to allow the backlight to shine through will lead to this (this is what happened to my Lycosa)

It all comes down to what he likes and feels. To everyone, the keyboard will feel different. By feel i think he is referring to the tactile click.

which is why you buy a non-razer mech wink.gif

I suggest the Ducky Shine. Great build quality and very nice. I have a ducky shine with blue LED's and blue switches myself

Personally I wouldn't get anything from Razor or Steel Series. I had a Steel Series 6GV2, when I first got it I loved it. Now I have a Filco Majestouch Ninja 2 and I prefer so much more. The build quality is better in my opinion. Plus with steel series their key caps are such low quality that they wore out after 4 months.

I'd personally go with Filco or any other company that just concentrates on mechanical keyboards. They maybe more expensive but definitely much better than large gaming companies as they use cheap stuff to make their products.
