I'd personally go for the K70 over the Razer board, hope you manage to get one. smile.gifsmile.gif

Thanks for all the help, I just ordered Corsair K70 MX-Blue, German layout, blue LED for 130€ with shipping included. I think I got the last one! They don't deliver to Slovenia, so I'm having it delivered to a family friend in Austria, I hope everything is okay with it because returns would be slightly inconvenient. I hope it lasts me next 20 years! biggrin.gif

first, what is PBT and ABS caps? 2nd, do you know anywhere i could get a compact keyboard in the US? compact is preferable because i have limited space and play at very low sensitivities, so need a large mouspad.

You could consider the Race 2.

Yeah, you order through email, I can't be sure if you use PayPal, but I'd imagine you would.

  • Location: Greece
  • If not in the US or UK, links to stores in your country: Available brands/models i can find is Coolermaster ,Corsair, Logitech, Razer, Gigabyte Osmium, Ozone Strike
  • Any keyboards you currently have in mind: CM Storm Trigger-Z, Corsair K70
  • Price: Around 130 euros , lower = better
  • Backlighting (yes (colour?)/ no ): yes, no specific color, not something that will distract me
  • Size (60%, TKL, full size etc): Full size
  • Use (games/ programming/ typing etc): Games and typing
  • USB/ PS2: USB
  • KRO: 6 at least
  • Macro keys (yes/ no): not very important, not bad to have some. Same for on board memory
  • Media keys (yes/ no): it doesn't matter for me
  • Layout (US/ ANSI, etc): US (Just wish i could use big Enter key from uk layout frown.gif )
  • Switch type (if not known complete the questions below): Its my first Mechanical, i do gaming and typing so i believe i should choose Brown
  • *Noise level (high/low): The lowest the better i don't use headset
  • *Tactility (yes/ no): yes
  • *Stiffness (high/ low): i think something in between

Well availability is an issue so i am limited about my options. I should say comfort is my main concern. A good wrist rest is also a plus for me. Thanx in advance, great section biggrin.gif

Of the two you mentioned, I'd personally go for the Trigger-Z, that being said, you could also consider the CM QuickFire Ultimate or the Logitech G710+.

If you could provide some links to the shops you'd be happy buying from, I can see if there's anything else worth considering.

Thanx for the fast reply. About available options i doubt if there's more than I already posted. I can give you some links www.skroutz.gr, www.eshop.gr, www.ebw.gr, www.plaisio.gr but i believe you will just lose your time. I am not even sure if those sites have English language option. I also tend for Trigger-z more but i will give a 2nd look on your other recommendations. May i ask why u like trigger-z more than K70? And my last question (a bit off topic).. Do you know any way to replace Enter key from US layout with the big one from the UK ? Probably i can rebind \,| to a macro key i don't mind for them. I mind about high ratio of misclicks with standard Enter key layout. Thanx again !

The K70 has had some issues with the aluminium backplate causing wobbling and LED's failing, if it were me buying the board I'd get the CM Storm Trigger-Z to see if it's as good as the previous model (even though the OEM isn't known to be as good on the new board).

In terms of replacing the enter key, you can't easily just swap the key out as it's a different layout on the PCB, the ISO layout (big enter key) has a few other differences in switch locations to the ANSI layout (US), which means a swap isn't really possible without getting a new PCB.
