I have been using an IBM Kb-8923, It still works and I have had it since 99 in college. I have trashed many other keyboards since then and now, but I thought it was time to try a decent keyboard for once. I didn't want to spend a lot due to my track record of destroying them. I have spent a few hours with the CM Storm QuickFire TK with red switches and LED's and I will never go back to anything less. My main reason for a new keyboard was for back lighting. I painted this room a dark color and could never see the keys at night. This thing is almost too bright, which is great because of the adjustable back lighting. Typing feels good and I love the smaller platform. It feels great with BF3 so far, and expect it to with other games. This is the first mechanical keyboard I have owned so take it as you will. I have not tried other switch types but these reds feel perfect to me. I know there are claimed nicer boards like ducky and filco, but if they all use the same cherry switches could someone explain to me the warrant for such a high price on those boards? Some have an aluminum or steel backing plate for more durability but I don't need it to smack upside someone's face. For $75 bucks I couldn't be happier. That's just my thoughts on this keyboard. Sorry about the cell pics.
