[*] Location: Russia. Essentially amazon/ebay stores with delivery to Russia.

[*] Any keyboards you currently have in mind: eh, quickfire rapid i, steelseries apex m500 maybe, maybe logitech g410, I digged into mechanical keyboards and yet to find anything I really want.
[*] Price: ~140$ and less
[*] Backlighting (yes (colour?)/ no ): if it has tactile feedback and markings on keycaps (or angled keycaps) to differentiate on which keys my fingers are, doesn't matter. I saw some videos with RGB lighted keyboards, it looks fun, but I'm not sure how often i'll use dis.
[*] Size (60%, TKL, full size etc): would prefer TKL, or full size without mediakeys. although if it doesn't feel bulky, i can deal with any size
[*] Use (games/ programming/ typing etc): literally all of it.
[*] Switch type (if not known complete the questions below): something with low travel length, low actuation force, but some amount of tactile feedback. I guess cherrys brown, or romer-g (dunno about tactiles of those).
[*] *Tactility (yes/ no): preferably yes
[*] *Stiffness (high/ low): low
nevermind. I bought logitech g610 with cherry mx browns for 115$.

  • Any keyboards you currently have in mind: Pok3r/custom/fc660c
  • Price: Any
  • Backlighting (yes (colour?)/ no ): no/ability to turn off
  • Size (60%, TKL, full size etc): 60%
  • Use (games/ programming/ typing etc): Typing
  • USB/ PS2: usb
  • KRO: N
  • Layout (US/ ANSI, etc): ANSI
  • Switch type (if not known complete the questions below): Doesn't matter]

What I'm really looking for is a fully programmable 60% keyboard. I haven't been up to date with mech keyboards for a few years now, so I'm not sure what's good or not anymore. I'm really looking for something that is top notch, I don't mind building it or what price it is, as long as it's reasonable (like a uTron @ ~$800 is out of the question -- since I have a girlfriend lol). My girlfriend also wants something with arrow keys, but it's not a deal breaker for me. I think the main thing is that it has quality keycaps, and that I can program the standard board, and the fn layers however I want (firmware level not os).

  • Any keyboards you currently have in mind: Corsair K70, but it costs a lot.
  • Price: The cheapest you can find with the following specifications.
  • Backlighting (yes (colour?)/ no ): Not if it hinders the price.
  • Size (60%, TKL, full size etc): Full size.
  • Use (games/ programming/ typing etc): One that's good for gaming and not terrible for typing.
  • USB/ PS2: Does it matter?
  • KRO: It would be nice if I could push Q, W, Spacebar, A or D and X at the same time. Probably the most keys I'll ever push at once.
  • Macro keys (yes/ no): Doesn't matter.
  • Media keys (yes/ no): Doesn't matter.
  • Layout (US/ ANSI, etc): The one with the Enter key that only takes one row.
  • Switch type (if not known complete the questions below):
  • *Noise level (high/low): Doesn't matter.
  • *Tactility (yes/ no): Doesn't matter. Whatever it is, it will be better than my current keyboard.
  • *Stiffness (high/ low): Low would be preferred.

Also, a wrist rest would be nice, but not if it means the keyboard will cost $200 or something.

For your GF, FC660C is one best 60% out there
For you if you want a top notch keyboard, Type-S with Hasu controller which provides you a fully programmable controller
Trust me, Type-S feeling is one of best typing feeling you will ever experience thumb.gif
Normal HHKB looks good also
HHKB is not programmable but custom controller will do (Hasu is only one who makes custom controller, moreover, its has BT module)

Any keyboards you currently have in mind:Cm Storm Quickfire rapid-i , quickfire tk,Corsair Strafe,Logitech g610
Price:Sub 120$ preferably sub 100$ Only from amazon unless another store offers intl. shipping+import fees for 30 bucks
Backlighting:Yes color doesnt matter dont care for modes rgb etc
Size: Prefer less than full size but doesnt matter
Use: Typing, fps games
Usb
Min 6 key ro
Macro keys:no
Media keys: Preferable but not critical Layout: Iso preferable but ansi ok
Switch type Brown , blue or green

I was gonna open a new thread but writing here instead, im trying to decide between the keyboards above.
Does any of them have significant difference between keycap quality? Or problem with leds(i know early rapid-i had)
I tried browns very briefly and they were kinda light does blues offer noticable increase in force?
Also if i decide tobgo with browns i can buy g610 locally which is a plus.
Blu
