You could always get any generic gel wrist rest. It only costs $5-10 in many office/electronic stores and should work with full-sized and TKL keyboards.

For me, there was a difference from using a Razer Lycosa, which is low-profile, to using my KBT Race with a wrist rest. The Lycosa was flat, from the wrist rest all the way to the F keys, which meant that it was hard to feel where certain keys were during touch typing (lots of typos). With many mech keyboards, they usually have varying heights for each row, so it's easier to distinguish one row from another and really helps you type quicker with less typos.

Im looking for a gaming/general purpose mech keyboard. From what I understan the Brown Cherry MX should work fine for that but to be honest Im getting overwhelmed with all the info out there. Can you guys help me pick a nice bang for the buck keyboard that has blue iluminated keys and comfortable to game for hours? I never had anything but $10 keyboards on $3k+ computers.....doh.gif

Hey guys. Looking to get myself a nice mechanical keyboard, mainly for gaming. I was primarily looking for a tenkeyless board and probably going for a Cherry MX. I narrowed it down two three choices and need some recommendations:

Noppoo Choc-Mini MX Brown
CM Storm Quickfire Rapid
Filco Ninja Majestouch-2

Any help would be appreciated.

Good choices!

Are you going for black, brown or red? The CM Storm in red is nice and at a lower price than the others. Makes it easy to buy.
But other than that I think your are getting into personal choice, and budget, option area. They are all good boards, so buy the one that looks best to you.

Would I be right in saying that the Filco is the top end out of the ones I've shortlisted?

Yes, it is probably the best until you get up to RealForce level. You get the others because you like the price, looks or features.
