You could wait for the CM Storm Trigger-Z, I'm not sure why it's not available in the US yet.

The K70 is a reasonable choice, but some users have experienced issues with the backlight or a wobbly faceplate.

The QuickFire Rapid isn't backlit and I'm having trouble thinking of a board that meets all those criteria.

  • The QuickFire Rapid/ Stealth can be found with MX Greens but isn't backlit
  • There is a version of the QuickFire TK with MX Greens, but it has green backlight and is over budget
  • The Ducky Shine 3 comes with MX Greens but is over budget and as far as I know only available in full size
  • The WASD V2 CODE can be found with MX Greens and white backlight and in TKL, however it's far over budget.


I think you're going to have to either increase your budget or change some criteria.

Your budget is too low for your criteria, so I'd suggest looking on eBay for a Logitech G710+ and hope you can find one close to your budget.

Must have
-Cherry MX Browns
-Backlighing(I would really like it If i can choose which keys can be backlit, and maybe some lightning modes)
-Media Control(shoudl be sperated and not as a X+Y Key)
-Numpad
-German Layout

Possible features
-Passthrough/Hub
-G-Keys
-Hand Rest

So these are the one's I found, the problem with those, is that the most of them are pretty expensive.

-Corsair Vengeance K70
-Roccat Ryos MK Pro
-Logitech G710+

My budget would be around ~150 € but I don't want to max it out.
I don't mind the shop where I can buy it from. as long as it is safe, I can buy with paypal or prepayment/cash on delivery and delivers to austria.
But I would appreciate amazon

I can personally recommend the G710+ because I own it and like it a lot. Haven't messed with the others though. 

 

i would watch this video. It helped me make a decsicion

I already watched this video 5 times biggrin.gif
I heard, a lot of people have problem with the G710+ because the Ctrl and Esc Keys fell off.
How long do you already own this keyboard?
Also, can you change which key can be backlight or is it locked to Everything/Nothing/WASD+Arrow Keys

You're massively reducing the number of boards you can choose from by just buying from Amazon, they don't even have many varieties of the Ducky Shine 3, which I would highly recommend.

Failing that, the Logitech G710+ is a good choice.

You're meant to fill out the form in the OP, but I'll help this time.

I'd suggest the CM Storm Trigger-Z.

I know it is limiting using Amazon but have a bunch in amazon gift cards that I need to use on something figured a new keyboard would be worth it

Edit: thanks for quick reply BTW. G710+ on sale for $98 on amazon at the moment. That was what inspired me to start looking into a new keyboard
