Keyboard Suggestion Thread - Page 2

post #11 of 2339
Any keyboards you currently have in mind: Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire
Price:0-80
Backlighting (yes (colour?)/ no ):No, but included would be nice
Size (60%, TKL, full size etc):Doesn't matter
Use (games/ programming/ typing etc):99% of its use will be typing of some sort, 1% of its use would be gaming
USB/ PS2: Don't care too much
KRO: Not too important ?
Macro keys (yes/ no): No
Media keys (yes/ no): No
Layout (US/ ANSI, etc): US
Switch type (if not known complete the questions below): I'm assuming blue will be best for typing
*Noise level (high/low): High can be tolerable
*Tactility (yes/ no):
*Stiffness (high/ low):low

Thanks ahead of time! biggrin.gif

A Quickfire TK sounds perfect for your needs, although if you will be typing around others predominantly, Blues might not be the best choice.

Any keyboards you currently have in mind:

Logitech 710 (Not a huge fan of the color scheme), Corsair k60/k90 or k65/95 (seems as if the first series is plagued with issues), Tte Sports, and CM Trigger.

Price: Not really an issue $150-250; more concerned with quality and meeting my requirements without compromise.

Backlighting (yes (colour?)/ no ): Yes.

Size (60%, TKL, full size etc): Full size or no number key

Use (games/ programming/ typing etc): Gaming and internet surfing/emails.

USB/ PS2: You tell me ?

KRO: No idea what this is.

Macro keys (yes/ no): Yes

Media keys (yes/ no): Yes (very important)

Layout (US/ ANSI, etc): US

Switch type (if not known complete the questions below): I believe Browns.

*Noise level (high/low): Low

*Tactility (yes/ no): Yes

*Stiffness (high/ low): Low

Interesting! Where would I find one of these keyboards if I were to find one? I haven't the slightest, since the site is down now for stock on those models.

How does the FC500r compare to the das/filco/ducky keyboards?

Either one of the import sites (if you're not in the US) or EliteKeyboards if you are in the US.

You'll wanna look for an MX-Brown keyboard if you want tactile switches.

If you don't need the num-pad, the QuickFire Rapid is $80.

I'd suggest this given that the K60 uses linear MX Red switches and you asked for tactile. The board I linked uses light, tactile MX Brown switches, more in line with what you've answered the questions with. smile.gif
