Ducky shine zero.
post #834 of 2353
Thread Starter 
The Ducky Shine Zero is only available in fullsize, I'd consider waiting for the Ducky Mini if you want a Ducky board.

Otherwise you could stretch the budget very slightly and look at some of the Vortex options such as the Pure Pro:



Or for a little more, a Poker II:

ah, sorry, missed that part.
post #836 of 2353
Looking to replace my aging G15. I used the LCD on this keyboard to monitor temps/voltages/utilization and will miss that feature, but I am not aware of any mechanical that has an LCD onboard so I am willing to let that go.

WASD V2, Ducky Shine 3, CM QuickFire Ultimate and the ones you listed, you have a lot of options. You could also wait for Corsair's RGB LED mech board to come out.
post #838 of 2353
Thanks Paradigm!

Having a tough time choosing. If the MX RGB was out it would be a no-brainer, but everything I've read says we probably won't see it for at least another 4 months. It is encouraging that Corsair says it will cost less than the RGB membranes boards that currently exist, but I'm still skeptical we won't be forced to pay a premium for that board at least for the first year. I'd like to get a keyboard on order this week ideally.

Are there any boards you would add to the list if you had the freedom to choose the best switch type for someone who primarily games? Everything I've researched indicates the Reds are the best fit for most.

I appreciate the help very much.

MX Reds have been incorrectly marketed as "the gaming switch" for a while, this misinformation is caused by some peripherals companies who try to market their new board with MX Reds as having some tangible advantage over a rubber dome board, when this isn't the case.

MX Reds are often recommended for a gaming board because of the linear action and the low actuation point, this makes double taps very easy. It's worth noting however that MX Reds are especially light MX switches, and you may find yourself accidentally pressing switches occasionally, especially if you use the keyboard for regular typing aswell.

I can't honestly recommend a switch and say this is the best switch for gaming for you because it's so subjective, so instead here's a few points to consider, then you can decide which is best for you:

MX Reds:
  • Light linear
  • Relatively easy to accidentally press keys (especially when typing)
  • Good for double tapping


MX Blacks:
  • Heavier linear
  • Unlikely to accidentally press keys compared to MX Reds
  • Some users feel fatigued after typing on them for a while


MX Browns:
  • Light tactile bump
  • Less likely to accidentally press keys compared to MX Reds
  • The tactile bump is fairly small, some users complain that it's too hard to use effectively when typing.


MX Blues:
  • Light/ medium tactile click
  • Accidental key presses are relatively uncommon
  • Some users find it difficult to double tap due to the gap between the switch actuation and the click
