What is the best Tenkeyless Mechanical Keyboard? - Page 3

post #21 of 36
Another vote for Filco Majestouch 2 TKL. Pretty much the only keyboard I will use now. I still use my Das at home for the 10key though when I'm using Excel.

how do u find playing games like Starcraft or typing in black? are they tiresome?
other question, is this keyboard easier to press than a membrane one? i have read that membrane and black feel pretty much the same in term of pressure u have to put in the keys?

IMO, membranes are much harder to press. Compared a Logitech G15 to a SteelSeries 7G.

If you're gonna compare the feel and sturdiness of CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Cherry MX Red to a SteelSeries 6Gv2 Red, which is better?

The Noppo Choc mini is quite nice. It's 99.99 on Amazon and you can get it with a few different sets of switches.

http://www.amazon.com/Noppoo-Mechanical-Gaming-Keyboard-Switches/dp/B0091Q34EI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1351190549&sr=8-1&keywords=noppoo+choc+mini

Here's the brown switch version. There's also blue, red, and black.

I wouldn't recommend the 6Gv2 to anyone. I bought one and literally within 4 or 5 hours of gaming the w, a, s, and d keys had all almost worn off completely. I returned it and bought a Black Widow BF3 edition and couldn't be happier. I really like it mainly because of the backlit keys because it makes it much easier to use in the dark imo.

I have a Filco Majestouch 2 Ninja Tenkeyless with Red Switches and i love it, it's boss.
However, i can understand that someone does not want to spend so much on a keyboard.

The Noopoo Choc Mini has an even smaller layout so it might be something you could consider aswell.

I personally think the upcomming CM Storm QuickFire Stealth is the best looking Tenkeyless and the best bang for the buck:
