Surprised that the Steelseries 6Gv2 isn't listed. It is better than the 7G (in my opinion). A lot cheaper than the 7G as well.

I have the Meka G1, it's a very solid keyboard but within 2 months of purchasing it the printing on the WASD keys was starting to fade. If you get a Thermaltake I recommend a very thin coat of clear fingernail polish on those keys to preserve them or get some custom caps. I really liked the MX blacks on the Meka G1 but find the reds on my new board much more to my liking although I do get a lot of errors when I type (okay so I'm a terrible 2 finger typist,biggrin.gif ). I bought my Dad a Das for his iMac (MX blues) and haven't had a chance to play with it yet but it is my understanding that the release point on each keystroke is different than the actuation point. Not sure that I would like that feel to my keys when gaming but that being said some people swear by them.

Same thing happens on the 6Gv2 in terms of the letters on the keys start to fade. It is just aeshetics, the keyboard is built like a tank. I'm unsure if this is resolved on the 7G. The lettering is still visible, its just not "white" anymore and more like "gray."

I would not recommend that keyboard whatsoever. It is not a full mechanical keyboard, it is a hybrid keyboard. Some are regular keys and some are cherry MX reds.
Reds are more sensitive than blacks.

I heard the 7G wrist rest is very comfortable.

My huge problem with the 7G for me is the backspace button, it's very small and prefer the full-size one.

Have you ever thought of getting other keyboards? Something like a CM Storm Quickfire Rapid is good. I do not suggest blue switches or brown switches for gaming, linear switches are better especially for fps. MX blue switches have a higher reset point compared other cherry MX switches, this can affect your double tapping.
