I wanted something with more reliable keys and reliable quality. It has to be black and either be blue illuminated or have the option to change colors (that would actually be best so I can comfortably change the fans in my RIG while still matching. I had purple fans for my last RIG and it always bothered me I had a blue keyboard and mouse).
I was looking at the Razer Blackwidow Blue LED variant or the Roccat Isku. The Cosair I personally think is ugly and not my style. The Duckyshine looks like a viable option though may be a bit more than I'm looking to spend. The X-Armor isn't bad looking either though it's up there just over what I really want to spend on a keyboard.
I don't use the keyboard that much so I can't justify spending much over $100 on it. I mean, for real, I don't even use the PC much. I'm so busy with my job that when I am home, I like to spend much of that time with my wife. I have a Logitech K400 that is used most when using that PC because most of the time I'm just using it for simple things. Hell, 99% of my computing is either done on my Lumia, my VAIO laptop, her MacBook Air or her iPhone (her work gives her Apple products
). Because it's quick and convenient at the time. I just LOVE building fast computers, doesn't mean I have time to use them
