Sorry, this is my first real keyboard and I know next to nothing, thanks in advance.

Rapid is better keyboard, IMO. I had K70 and returned.

Could you tell me why the Ducky Shine 3 will be the best choice?

solid build, lots of options as far as picking your preferred switch and backlighting color, and just overall a very solid keyboard.

you're not going to find a full sized board for $60 unless its used.

Hey everyone - I really appreciate any help I get with making a final decision!

[*] Location: USA
[*] Any keyboards you currently have in mind: I like a few of the Corsair boards, as well as the Ducky 3 -- I'm pretty open though
[*] Price: I'd like to keep it below $150 ideally
[*] Backlighting (yes (colour?)/ no ): Yes - a must, as I regularly work in the dark. Blue/white would work best for me.
[*] Size (60%, TKL, full size etc): Full size - I really need that numpad. Its killing me, because I really the storm and rapidfire
[*] Use (games/ programming/ typing etc): 70/30 Games/Programming -- I love to game, but work from home as well quite frequently
[*] USB/ PS2: Either works for me
[*] KRO: 6kro+ - nkro
[*] Macro keys (yes/ no): Would be cool, but not necessary
[*] Media keys (yes/ no): Not necessary, but would be cool ;-)
[*] Layout (US/ ANSI, etc): US
[*] Switch type (if not known complete the questions below): I think I want to stick with Browns.


Thanks for any suggestions guys, seriously!

DuckyShine3 over the corsair all day every day.

Standard layout ( so you can change keycaps in the future if you want )
much better build quality
no cheezy gamery labels
cool lighting modes.
post #1639 of 2353
I'd agree with Ducky over Corsair. The Corsairs aren't bad, but Ducky has a better rep for build quality and while you may not have interest in getting different keycaps now, the urge will probably strike you at some point and it'll be easier with the ducky.
