Do you know any other keyboard where u can choose which keys u want to illuminate?

Pretty sure the Corsair K95 is able to do that, although I think it is out of your budget.

Hi - am after a mechanical keyboard - thanks for any help.
  • Location:
    UK
  • Any keyboards you currently have in mind:
    Because of the budget price:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cherry-Quality-Action-Keyboard-G80-3000LSCGB-2/dp/B0041KJKAG/ref=cm_cd_ql_qh_dp_t
    Also have heard good things about the Ducky 3...
  • Price:
    Maybe up to £100 but ideally less.
  • Backlighting (yes (colour?)/ no ):
    Not necessary
  • Size (60%, TKL, full size etc):
    Open-minded. I guess I don't really need the number-pad.
  • Use (games/ programming/ typing etc):
    Gaming, writing/word processing, general typing/internet stuff
  • USB/ PS2:
    Open-minded
  • KRO:
    Not entirely sure - I know what KRO means but having only returned to PC gaming with this new PC, I'm not sure what I need.
  • Macro keys (yes/ no):
    Not needed
  • Media keys (yes/ no):
    Would be nice to have
  • Layout (US/ ANSI, etc):
    Standard UK layout
  • Switch type (if not known complete the questions below):
    Not known
  • *Noise level (high/low):
    Low, but not really sure - I've not used a mechanical keyboard before and can't say how I'll feel after using one for months - perhaps people here could suggest based on my needs (gaming and word processing) what might be best suited.
  • *Tactility (yes/ no):
    not sure
  • *Stiffness (high/ low):
    not sure
post #1023 of 2353
As I informed myself here, I wanted to take the Coolermaster Storm Trigger z (Cherry MX Brown).
A friend of mine told me that the Roccat Ryos MK Pro would be good.
I also heard, that Roccat has a bad name.
Is this still the case, because before I am going to spend 170€ for a keyboard which is made cheap and is badly processed, for cool lightning effects, I'd rather go with the CM Storm Trigger Z.
Or is there any Keyboard outthere , which is just like the CM Strom Trigger Z, and costs like like it, but with per key-illumination?
The Corsair K70, K95, and all Ducky Shine 3 are not avaible for me.
Corsair one's becaus they would take to long to deliver, and Ducky's because no G-Key, what isn't really a problem, but no german layout with browns .

I tested the Roccat and it didnt have the nice finish or build quality of my Corsair K70.
It.

Well, as it looks the K70 is just one of the bes build mechanical keyboards outthere.
But did you feel or see something else except that it didn't look as great as the K70

Many, many people would disagree with this statement. Corsair is not bad, but far from the best built.

If you want top level build quality, I would go witih a Filco, Ducky, or a full blown custom.

K70's have had dying LED issues and QC issues with keyboards being shipped out that did not lay flat on a desk. ( i've had first hand exp with that )
post #1027 of 2353
Are there any slimline mech boards (like filco or ducky no nonsense shape) with one column of G keys to the left? The more compact the better, but must have F keys.

I'd suggest the Ducky Zero with MX Browns.

Usually I'd suggest the CM QuickFire XT, but I can only find it with MX Blues or MX Reds, which you may not like for gaming or typing respectively.
post #1029 of 2353
Thanks, I was looking at the Ducky Shine 3 but don't need the fancy lights!

I've searched but haven't found a clear answer on the difference between the Shine 3 and the Zero. Is it just the lighting display - is the quality and everything else the same?

I agree the brown switches are a good choice for me, thanks again.

The Ducky Zero has no detachable cable, no DIP switches, no media keys (so you'd have to use software), less durable keycaps and no adjustable USB repeat options.

As far as I know the build quality is the same.
