Which Keyboard?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I understand that prices vary between companies, but when Ducky II is $150.

Corsair Vengeance with extra keys is $85 used.
http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-Performance-Mechanical-CH-9000003-NA/dp/B005QUQP94/ref=sr_1_2?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1350192452&sr=1-2&keywords=Black+Widow+Ultimate


Yes, it is used, but they are way cheaper than a Ducky II and have more functionality. So what gives?
Which keyboard would you recommend with back-lit keys (a preferably a few macro keys) that are cheap when bought used off of say, Amazon?

Thanks! thumb.gif

MEKA G1 great for typing and gaming

The Esc and Function keys row on Corsair keyboards do not have mechanical switches. They are rubber membrane. The macro keys may be rubber membrane as well.

I second the meka g1 because first its made by costar thus ensuring high quality and second I have a similar board but its the ozone strike and its the best board I own it just oozes quality, the mionix zibal 60 is the same board but has backlighting

Ok, but I do have to take into consideration that it's not back-lit. tongue.gif

Get a shine, build quality is superb, it's back -lit and 100% mechanical.

Not to say this opinion is not bias, since I my self is a shine owner.

may i suggest the maxkeyboard Nighthawk x8 and/or x9 smile.gif check em out. I bought one out of frustration with my quick fire pro (the full board version) not working. More of an impulse buy really, but I was thoroughly satisfied. I hear great things about ducky's though. I think I may get one of those one day for work...they are a bit more than some mech boards though.

You can wait for the backlit version to come out if you're not in a hurry.
