I think anything other than blue should be fine. Best then to find out which you prefer the feel of. The difference in sound between reds and blacks is marginal. Blacks require more force. If you're going to push me, I think reds would be a better starting point for you. You might find the following videos interesting by the way:

Alright, that's enough videos of people typing on keyboards for one night smile.gif

Thanks for the videos - I watched those and then ... too many others

Cherry MX Red with the o-rings seems like the right path with the info I have. Now to pick a (full w/ 10key) chassis ... smile.gif My favorite keyboards are the ergonomic (4000) type with angle between the hands but the only options I saw like that were pricey split keyboards

Youtube normally ends in a purchase with me. Unless I am watching a Let's Play series.

Just remember that blacks and reds are better suited to gaming, not typing. But again, it all comes down to preference.
post #2096 of 2365

  • Any keyboards you currently have in mind: Cougar KBC200, Razer Deathstalker

Thanks again Vigil

So I'm ready to pull the trigger and am between the Ducky One and the Ducky Legend (decided I would like blue backlit, and heard the Ducky backlit ABS caps are quiet).

The Ducky Legend is apparently 0.22" thick aluminum chassis. That's neat. The question is - would the Aluminium vs standard chassis have a different/preferable sound?

I actually like the black vs polished aluminum better but the aluminium has spaced F keys which are helpful for quicksave/quickload

EDIT: The deed is done! Many thanks to Vigil and boredgunner for their advice. I ordered the Ducky One with black chassis, blue backlighting, Cherry MX Red switches, some key pullers and MechanicalKeyboard's red (thick) 40A hardness o-rings. Now ... the waiting game smile.gif

Ducky is a well regarded brand. I don't think I could have helped with any of your other questions anyway. I hope you enjoy your purchase.
post #2099 of 2365
Hello and thanks for this nice Thread !

I currently have Logitech G110 - I'm not satisfied with key feeling and backlight (too low and not so much customizable)


Price: <140 EUR or <165 USD
Backlighting: yes - custom colored preferred
Size: full size
Use : gaming
USB/ PS2: USB
KRO: not critical - 5+ keys
Macro keys: yes - 6 are enough
Media keys: only volume control really needed
Layout (US/ ANSI, etc): IT preferred or US
Switch type: Cherry RED (these should be light and soft, right ?)
*Noise level (high/low): LOW
*Stiffness (high/ low): LOW
* ROBUST FEET as I'm a heavy hitter smile.gif


thanks in advance

Sir Bethor Morgan

p.s.
should be available for purchase in EUROPE

Hey ppl,

wanted to buy a mechanical keyboard and I did. Owned one for a month and didn't like it. I figured out I rly like shallow keys, but all mechanical keyboards have dip keys (as far as I know). So what are my options? I don't need macros, back-light and all that stuff. Should I even buy anything more expensive than 10$ keyboard I currently have and am happy with?
