This is great advice, if you live close to a Fry's they usually have at least one keyboard with Blues, and Browns open. A couple times I've seen reds and was glad I tried them in the store they were way to light for me.
if you don't live close to a store the WASD pack is great and cheap considering how much you're looking at spending on a keyboard.
