Can't find a keyboard which suits my requirements. Help me please!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey people,

I'm currently in the market for a new keyboard, but I can't seem to find a keyboard which would suit me and my setup.

Here's the thing. My PC Case, Monitor, Motherboard, Ram, GPU and even Case Fans are all in Black+Red Colour configuration. I'm absolutely OCD about it (as if you didn't know that by now) and can't find a proper keyboard to go with my colour configuration as well as have the other requirements I need.

So without further ado, let's list the things I would most preferably have, and hopefully you guys will be able to guide me in the proper direction.

- Black design, brushed aluminum or a black Matte design would also be possible.
- Red Backlighting, or at least programmable to have Red Backlighting.
- Palm rest which is integrated into the design, so not removable because I tend to lose removable parts.
- 2 or more USB throughputs. Doesn't need to be USB 3.0 or anything, just multiple will suffice. These are primarily for my Bluetooth adapter and my G930 USB Stick (until it gets replaced with the Astro A50 very soon).
- As quiet as possible without losing the tactile feedback. The GF isn't all too happy with my very clicky keyboard atm.
- Braided cable. This is an aesthetic thing, but I really would like a braided cable

As for price, it doesn't really matter too much, as long as it's under 200 Euro's. As I feel that anything above that is kind of overpaying.

I really hope that you can help me out with this, as I'm at a loss at the moment. And every day I'm getting more annoyed by the inconsistency of my setup :/

That certainly comes pretty damn close to what I needed. Unfortunately for me, it's not available in The Netherlands. Another forum recommended the K70 for me, as well as the SteelSeries Apex.

The Apex unfortunately uses membrane keys, which I dislike. The K70 uses Cherry MX Red's, which I love. So I'm going for that one I guess. Thanks for the recommendation though, if it were available here, I would have gotten it!

That was the best I could do, I don't even know what the online stores for computers parts are for your region. I'm not even sure if many exists at all, from last I remembered everything in EU & AUS is crazy expensive for PC parts.
