any reason not to buy the k90? I want a mech, but dont want a (boring-looking to me) standard keyboard. I prefer dedicated media keys (Fn + key defeats purpose, especially when they're a good distance away from each other). Illumination/Macro are pluses but not a deal breaker - Macro keys are not important to me at all.

I'm also considering the Azio Mech4, but the lack of media keys, and the dirty industrial look (when almost everything else that will be on my desk will be (glossy) black, are making it lose out to the k90. I get that the k90 is hybrid and fkeys are domed, but i dont use those keys 98% of the time anyways. I plan on mostly gaming/typing with this keyboard, and the type of switch is not important to me. Noise level is also unimportant.

Just looking for more candidates to throw in the equation, or a reason to eliminate the k90 or mech4 from consideration. thanks.

Mech4 is ridicously ugly.
post #13174 of 14551
I had a hands on with the Mech4 in OEM dress. Not a bad feeling board but a little overdressed smile.gif
You can see me talk about it here: http://youtu.be/d_LfCFR8r1w
Yes, I said their name wrong and sorry about sound. I guess I need a clip on mic.

just a quick question for you guys

i read that red/blacks were the best for gaming, however i only ever really play slow-paced RPGS, like the old DnD-based ones (baldurs gate, arcanum, TOEE etc.) the 'fastest' games i play are stuff like deus ex 3/witcher 2, which really isnt fast at all, at least no compared to quake or cs. are reds n blacks still the best for me? i do alot of typing too, mainly facebook/forums/msn, not anything for work and not much for school tongue.gif in my situation, would a set of browns be pretty much the same as blacks/reds in the games i play?

Browns will be better in your situation with a mix of gaming/typing.

Currently using this keyboard: http://www.amazon.com/S-Professional-Silent-Keyboard-Wired/dp/B003M549A2/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1328594298&sr=1-1

Although will probably try filco next. Assuming the keyboard dies out... which is not likely.
