Ideal Gaming Keyboard

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

My company is looking to build a new keyboard for the gaming market and we want input from the most important people, you the customer. We want to build a TKL board with class leading comfort and programmability without a bunch of frills/gimmicks and bulky software.

If you have a minute, please take this short survey and tell us what features are important to you:

Thanks!

Oh yes, how I would love someone to partner up with them to use their switches for W, A, S, D, Q, and E keys.

Unless i'm playing a game where apm is everything. Like starcraft of other spamming keys games, i prefer mechanical keyboards with buttons that have a big resistance. For APM heavy i like low resistance.

About to do the survey. Pease for the love of whatever you love do not do low profile keys. They are such a pain to deal with, they lack the tactile sensation of regular keys which helps users navigate quickly around the keyboard without having to look down.

Thanks for all the great input. We're going to keep the survey open for another week, don't miss your chance to be heard.
