Mech keyboard with european layout?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi! I'm getting a new rig in the near future, and I thought tha the first thing I'm going to change are the mouse and the keyboard. I want a mechanical, but a have some questions about certain models that I hope you can help me answer.

 

  1. What type of switch? I really like the sound of blues, but I don't know if it's the best for my, as I will mainly use the keyboard for gaming and typing (I'm a programmer)
  2. I'm looking for an orange backlit. I have only found two models, a Max and a Ducky, but i have seen some people replacing the defaults LEDs, and maybe I will do it if it's not too hard.
  3. Multimedia keys. If they are dedicated, better, but I could do with the FN button.
  4. Full size
  5. And last and more important, ISO layout. I live in Spain, so I use have 105 keys i think, more than the US standard, so most of keyboards sold online are no good, since most are ANSI. I think that even antoher language ISO keyboard could do, just replace the keycaps (if thats possible)


I have seen some that I like already, like:

Tesoro Colada - I really like the style, and aliminium too. I asked the company, and they are coming with spanish layout in June. Also in white.

Ducky Shine II - Orange light, but I don't really like the looks, too... bland. But I LOVE all the light effects.

Max keyboard Nighhawk X8 - I like it more than the ducky, but I don't thinks it's availabe in ISO.

Corsair K95 - Cooming soon, and I love it. Aluminum, media keys, light effects, mostly sure that it will come with spanish ISO. But MX Reds and white or red light.

 

Soo, that's it. Any recommendations?

 

Thanks!

BH I havent heard of a keyboard that isnt using the standard US layout. You could try to shop for aftermarket keycaps if blank keyboards arent your thing.

 

As for the ISO layout, you can alway use right alt + z and x instead of the small key near the left shift.
