Rule #1. Always buy mechanical keyboards.

So far with 20 seconds of looking over the manticore.. it has no mech switches hence being cheaper.
Between the two you've listed, the Razer one.

Else i'd rather recommend CM Storm keyboards due to overall better quality & price performance ratio.

I know the look of the Blackwidow is amazing. But in the end i personally would buy stuff were you know that it will last long.
Also i am curious if the new Razer switches are of high quality.. refering to a certain topic.


TL;DR.
Out of those two. The Razer.
While quality wise there are better ones with a better bang for the buck. CM Storm boards for example.

agreed with the cooler master boards, amazing, popular, long lasting.

note with the new razers, you're getting even less for your money, since the 'new' switches are cheaper chinese made clones, not the german made switches that are in every other mechanical keyboard.
