Brown or red are generally known for their performance in gaming, blacks tend to be tiresome for typing a lot, in the end it boils down to personal preference.

Thanks guys I have gone for browns as some days I do not stop typing and some days is non stop gaming.
I cant wait for my Overclock.net ducky 9008G2 Pro.

Hey guys, I'm planning on getting a mechanical keyboard by the first monday of november.
Since shipping does a big number on the cost overall I have the choice between a Corsair K60 and a K90. The price difference between them is very negligible. So I would like some final input from the community which of the two I should get.
This will be my first mechanical keyboard.
Any and all input is greatly appreciated.

Are you 100% sure you want the corsair K90/60?

It's pretty costly for something not fully mechanical (has some rubber domes)
But if you're from Germany, getting anything apart from the das will be hard if nov. 1st is the deadline

Well, kind of. I Checked the Das Keyboards out, they costs marginally more than the corsair ones. Plus the Das aren't available locally, whereas the Corsair ones are. If only one were rich.

Yeah I only mentioned das because it's fairly easy to find them in EU, other mechanical keyboard aren't that easy to get.

If you're really going to end up with either k90 or k60, check this thread out and you'll know which one to pick.

You're welcome, have fun with your keyboard smile.gif

Okay after a couple days with my MX Blacks they are actually starting to grow on me. I can actually float on them even without the tactile feedback which means it is EXTREMELY quiet and fun to type on. I admit I still make a couple of typos but I believe I still have a lot of time to get used to them. They are pretty hard but to me this is more a pro than a con since I have heavy hands. Gaming is without a doubt a pleasurable experience, I can now enjoy playing Dirt on keyboard with my dad using the 1 controller I have on split-screen. Hopefully the typos will disappear as time passes and I can increase my typing speed. Overall I think I made the right choice. smile.gif

Also another issue to me is that my work station is a laptop and I can't really bring my keboard to work everyday (pretty bulky and heavy) so I'm actually typing more on a laptop than I do on my mechanical. IDK if this is an issue but alternating with 2 very different keyboards might be cause me to never get 100% used to my mech. Or on the other hand, I can get used to both keyboards (IDK how the mind works in these situations lol).

Main point is MECH KEYBOARDS ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN RUBBER DOME/SCISSOR TYPE KEYBOARDS!! biggrin.gif

I really want to get a mechanical keyboard, but I'm not sure what one to buy since there are so many, can anyone with experience with a mechanical keyboard and gaming recommend me a good one that's not over 150$ ?
