As for a Red LED Backlit board; I would suggest waiting a bit for Cooler Master's offering to come out.

It should be more affordable than the Deck; feature the same Cherry MX-Black switches, but offer more features.

Build quality and details have yet to be announced but at Computex, they said it would come out this year.
Gottcha', thanks for the insight. That CoolerMaster board looks interesting, I suppose I'll wait it out to see what companies can offer in the future.

You can have linear switches that do not need to be bottomed out, and tactile switches that do need to be bottomed out (e.g. rubber domes)
Understood, definitely some useful information thanks!

I did like the Coolermaster boards at computex. They have more than black switches planned, but there may be regional availability. My guy said there may be Red but probably not for north American distribution. I will let you know if I see one here.

I've been reading on mechanical keyboards for hours the past week, and I could never find something that I like 100%.

I want one for both gaming and typing, have a wrist-rest and backlighting since I often game/chat in the dark. Also not Cherry MX Blues, because I'd like to keep the noise as low as possible. A bonus would be a single row of extra keys/macro keys up to 5 max in a single row.

Only Black widow was close to what I wanted, except for the Blues MX and well...the Razer quality/overprice...

...and right when I was about to give up and probably settle for a 6Gv2 I see the Coolermaster pic on the post above and it was like a godsend. Definitely gonna wait and see how good that turns out. Probably with Brown MX switches. Or Red. Hm or black.

Dammit.

The Blue line is definitely higher than the yellow line by I'd say 2mm.

I've been in search of my first mechanical keyboard lately and need some help.

I've come across a few keyboards that are appealing to me, but not quite sure what I want. I do lots of gaming and spend great deals playing, in addition to doing lots of typing. At the moment the blacks and browns seem to fit my needs.

Most of the keyboards though are using blacks, but ive heard these are not ideal for extended use and probably will tire your fingers or what some have said, "hurt".

With the great amount of time I spend using keyboards, I am looking for input in those claims. Any assistance?
post #12670 of 14567
I couldn't see blacks tiring you out much more then a standard rubber dome keyboard does.
