You know I wouldn't mind seeing a PS/2 to USB latency test. I haven't really seen a good convincing one.

These guys sure weren't convinced and they are SW developers.

Well they just degenerated into a flame war too . I don't think that source really says anything in the end.

I still think it's odd that the OP doesn't mention ANY of the advantages of USB. Seems a bit biased.

Advantages being convenience, and maybe the ability to do macros? Also future proof.

Maybe if it was just broken down to a list of pro's and con's for each interface, without recommending one, then nobody could complain .

I wonder if the Mionix is USB only? The Razer is. So is the $275 Realforce. And the $275 Happy Hacking Professional 2.

Nobody seems to complain about that.

People don't seem to be complaining about the lack of keyboards with full NKRO over USB, which can be done, but has only been implemented by a few manufacturers. You wouldn't think it'd be that much of a hassle over offering it over PS/2.

Especially now with Windows 7 SP1 getting rid of the USB 26KRO bug.

Never know when you need 104KRO.

So what's the verdict on best bang for buck when it comes to quality/performace?

I got about $120 to drop on a mechanical keyboard (+- a few).

1181 page thread is bit hard to navigate through so I appologize in advance, plus last few posts have just been talking about ps2 vs USB.

As far as what I am looking for:
I'd say 50/50 typing/gaming
I do like the clicky tactile feel/sound.

Been looking at the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate line, It's clicky (Mx Blue from what I read), it has backlight and the macro keys (I loved this on my G15). I liked the way it typed when I tested it at a local store. But from the reading I been doing, I have not been hearing good things about them as far as quality goes, that's kinda been a turnoff. I can part with backlight and the macro (If I have to). But I'd really like something that's not going to fail in a few months down the road.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Yah. Sorry about talking about the OP.

In my opinion the Leopold $99 deal is hard to beat. Brown Cherries is the safest choice. Blues are awesome.


Why it's not in the OP is a bit unclear to me since hundreds have shipped (if you assume the order numbers are sequential which they seem to be).
