I am liking the sound of the red switches due to the linear key press and light actuation force but I don't have any stores nearby that have mechanical keyboards to sample frown.gif

My friend from high school has a Razer black widow Ultimate and he said that board is really good for gaming in his opinion but I don't have any friends with any brown switch keyboards frown.gif
Browns are good for gaming, the tactileness is very subtle, if you press hard enough it's practically a linear switch XD

Reds are pretty much the best for gaming. Browns are pretty much the jack of all trades, good for typing and gaming, not not the absolute best at both.

Razer BW is pretty terrible IIRC, has bad quality control problems, and does not have the best oem, IONE. I would steer clear as much as possible imo.

That is what I thought regarding the BW's quality I like the k95 due to its solid look, aluminum brush and the sheer amount of macro keys and the nice backlighting features biggrin.gif

I'm currently looking at mech's never had one or used one before. I'm finding out there is no perfect one, I can't believe they can't create one with RGB led's...what about people who like to change color based on wallpaper color and have OCD matching component colors when they switch?!?!!?

I played with the K60 at walmart which has red mx switches, I was not a fan. The keys pushed too easy and were too light to the touch.

Im waiting it out for the K70 black/ red led's with the brown switches.

the light actuation would be a lovely addition to my desktop smile.gif as I generally am on the computer for long hours due to TAFE work for game development and gaming and Game testing

Go for the Corsair K95 is you want macros/media keys and an awesome aluminum body, but it's costs 200 dollars for aussies :/. If you really want the macros, i'd say go for it, it's one of the best keyboards on the market.

If you really have the money, i'd say go for K95 imo.

EDIT: Also the Logitech G710 is a pretty solid choice. It has some macros.
CHERRY IS NOT DUCKY'S OEM... Ducky actually can make boards themselves, I do believe they do outsource some manufacturing but it's not to Cherry,
