Keyboard Suggestion Thread - Page 228

post #2271 of 2316
Hey guys, I have a Logitech G710+ and I love the thing, problem is the keycaps keep breaking. I've had about 10 of them break in the last year, my QWERTY currently reads QWEEQY.

Yes, I've had a replacement keycap set sent to me by Logitech, great service, but the most used keys have broken more than once, hence my QWERY keycap issue. Also, I just lost the "8" keycap. I mean, how often do you even use the nubmer 8 key on a keyboard with a numpad?

Anyway, it's getting a bit annoying and I'm considering buying a new keyboard or getting a new keycap set. I'm in the UK so it'd have to be a UK set.

That's the cheap option, and I'd love to hear your recommendations. If that fails, I won't mind a new keyboard. I have quite a few specifics I need to have on a keyboard though, here they are...

Backlit, if it's RGB, fine, I don't need a disco ball, just some kind of backlight
  1. Macro keys
  2. Wrist rest
  3. MX Brown or Red keys
  4. Numpad

I honestly couldn't live without these things, maybe I could use black switches, but the other things are non negotiable, I'm afraid... Any suggestions? Thanks.

It really depends on what you are willing to spend for quality. I would recommend UK Cherry MX-Board 6.0 or a DUCKY. It is definitely a little harder to find the right board for you because of ISO layout while having the other features.

Money is not really an issue, as long as it's under £200. DUCKY doesn't come with a wrist rest afaik?

Let me do this properly:
  • Location:UK
  • If not in the US or UK, links to stores in your country:
  • Any keyboards you currently have in mind:Open to suggestions
  • Price:Up to £200
  • Backlighting (yes (colour?)/ no ):Yes, RGB ideally, so that I can match with my mouse
  • Size (60%, TKL, full size etc):Full size
  • Use (games/ programming/ typing etc):Gaming, need a few macro capabilities
  • USB/ PS2:USB
  • KRO:
  • Macro keys (yes/ no):Yes
  • Media keys (yes/ no):Yes
  • Layout (US/ ANSI, etc):UK
  • Switch type (if not known complete the questions below):MX Brown or Red
  • *Noise level (high/low):Not that bothered
  • *Tactility (yes/ no):Not a top priority
  • *Stiffness (high/ low):I would say low stiffness but MX Black also sounds interesting

My suggestion would be the Corsair K95, mainly because I am not familiar with the Macro Key experience on other board manufacturers.
Also, the K95 does come with a removable wrist wrest.

Thanks, I'd looked into the K95 already and it looks great, has everything I look for in a keyboard, only I keep hearing bad things about Corsair keyboards.

I'm actually just thinking about getting a PBT keycap replacement for my G710+ but it's hard to find them. I would need black keys with backlight, that's really it but I can't find any in the UK :/

  • Location: Finland, EU
  • If not in the US or UK, links to stores in your country:
  • Any keyboards you currently have in mind: Corsair K95 RGB PLATINUM
  • Price: up to 200€
  • Backlighting (yes (colour?)/ no ): RGB
  • Size (60%, TKL, full size etc): full size
  • Use (games/ programming/ typing etc): games/everyday usage
  • USB/ PS2: USB
  • KRO: NKRO
  • Macro keys (yes/ no): yes, 5-6 keys would be perfect
  • Media keys (yes/ no): yes
  • Layout (US/ ANSI, etc): Nordic
  • Switch type (if not known complete the questions below): cherry mx brown
  • *Noise level (high/low):
  • *Tactility (yes/ no):
  • *Stiffness (high/ low):

I'm currently using Logitech G710+, but it starts to be useless as keycaps are breaking down. I don't see point buying new keycaps from logitech because this is getting kinda old, leds are dimming down and I've been wanting to have ability to change backlighting more.

I'm looking for similar:ish keyboard as this G710+ but with RGB, mature look not too much "gamer" looking style like logitech G910 biggrin.gif. It also should be quality, so razer is no go.

Right now I only see K95 RGB PLATINUM as only choice for my needs (macro keys, customazible RGB, mx brown), but that's maybe because I haven't seen all the offerings.

What would you suggest to look at? smile.gif

I'm also eyeing up the Shine 6 atm. What makes it so good?

The only thing that makes me hold back atm is that there's no detachable wrist wrap for it. My desk layout is stupid and I really need a detachable wrist rest, otherwise the keyboard becomes uncomfortable.

Ok, how about this, let's compare the Shine 6 to the Corsair K95 RGB Platinum, what does the Shine 6 offer over the K95 Platinum?

Build quality on Corsair's boards tends to be regarded as poor.

What about the build quality though? They're aluminium keyboards using cherry mx switches. I'm not sure if it's poor pcb, or wiring, or soldering, but on the outside, they look no worse than any other keyboard. Maybe the keycaps?
