Mechanical Keyboard suggestions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I been out of the game for a while i currently have a filco blue switches, and bought a brown coolmaster quickfire for work.

I am starting to like the browns more then the blues. What are some of the better keytboards out there now a days.

Should i go for a filco brown switch? i want something with quality, i was also looking into the ducky shine.

In that case a Ducky Shine 3 would be a good choice, but you could also wait for Corsair's upcoming RGB backlit mech board.

If you really don't mind skipping backlighting, then a Filco would be a great choice, as would a WASD V2, or maybe even a topre board like one of the Realforce 104 variants.
