You can find the Majestouch 2 for closer to 150 on amazon after shipping and handling actually the last I looked, and that is coming from the keyboardco.. Now I am not sure where you would be ordering from but I know that the Majestouch for 140-155 is actually not bad for a full size of this particular keyboard and quality, but you could also get the XT for 80 or so and pay another 40-50 for some nice pbt key caps and have better feel with your typing experience depending on preference.

I'm a PBT virgin, so to speak. Do you think they "feel" better type on because of the extra weight or the key texture? Personally I have no issue with smooth keys, but I couldn't say how I'd feel about heavier caps; this might feel better for some switch types and worse for others perhaps.

I definitely think it may be preference but I have to say I absolutely love the difference in quality, feel, and weight that pbt caps and even double shot caps provide compared to your more common and standard abs plastic caps. I believe a nice feature that justifies using the pbt caps is the amount of time you get to keep and use them for without any real cosmetic wear like you get with abs plastic you definitely notice that "shine" that people tend to attribute with it. I highly recommend the pbt plastic and they do have thicker caps which tend to be heavier and thinned pbt for those who do not like the heavy feeling.

I tend to prefer blank keycaps so I haven't tried PBT or double shot yet. Might give PBT a go if I can find blank ones though.
post #1075 of 2365
There are plenty of blank pbt key caps and I actually prefer blank caps myself. I will be honest I have not looked up any of the places that I would normally by them from and I am going to say if you are interested and you would like to look at some and their prices I can pm you when I find them

Cm quickfire is a good choice. Tactile with low stiffness = brown switches, although some might argue blue are light. Ducky Zero DK2087 TKL might be a comparable alternative.

KRO= key roll over. Some cheap keyboards only have 4 or 5 key roll over, which means, if you press several keys down at once, only 4 or 5 ( whichever the keyboard is rated for ) will be registered.
Most mechanical keyboards have 10 key roll over, and n ( infinite ) key when using a PS2 port.

Coming from your last post in the Mech Keyboard club

Been looking at the Blackwidow, CM QuickFire TK and Corsair K70/K95

Need some of your guys thoughts and experiences with these boards

Well, first off, the Corsair K70/95 are both good ( i've owned the 95 ) but the backlight is white, and you'll have a hard time finding them in blues. ( I think you can get them but only through their online site ) ( they originally only came in red switches )
The CM QuickFire Tk's are good, but I would recomend the CM Quickfire XT over them ( no backlighting though )
If you're wanting green or blue backlighting, you'll want to buy the green or blue switched TK ( led color matches the switch type )

I don't and many others wouldn't recomend the BW, espc since the new 2014 versions have moved to using cheaper switches, and they have yet to been proven, so for the same price as the german made, tried-and-true cherry switches, they now come with cheaper chinese knock off's.
