Another "Find me a keyboard" thread!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Looking for a mechanical keyboard:
  • ANTI GHOSTING... GAH!!! It's so infuriating using my basic keyboard...
  • Media keys for iTunes/music software. Hate tabbing out of games all the time.
  • Red or Black switches
  • Would like extra keys for binding. I do play a couple MOBA's with friends.
  • Looking for the cheapest while retaining these functions (extra keys are optional).
  • Lights? They're cool... (optional)
The new Corsair board looks like what I want, but is there a board that's cheaper?
EDIT: Looks like the Corsair K90 is what I'm looking for, but I'm hoping for a little less than that jealoussmiley.gif
And it also looks like it is no longer around...

If you prefer brown over red or black, take a look at Logitech G710. 

 

That keyboard is a keeper for me.

 

If you want the black, Corsair RapidFire Pro would do just fine. I also have that keyboard and it is extremely solid. I think there is a backlit version of it as well.

Needs red/black and the K70 is cheaper.

Updated first post to include Anti ghosting. Can't believe I forgot that. Then again, I would expect good mechs to have anti ghosting

try and find a mech that plugs in ps/2 , these allow absolute freedom of mashing keys. The steelseries 6gv2 is cheap, got black switches, and is ps/2 or usb ... but it has no backlighting . but definitely a good idea to have a look at the ocn-mechanical-keyboard-ultimate thread smile.gif
