I think i'm going to email Adam at Deck and ask if they are ever going to use Cherry MX Red Linear switches in a Anniversary, Limited Edition or standard stock. just seems more logical to have Cherry MX Red Linear instead of Cherry MX Clear and probably good business since no company in North America has a product with Cherry MX Red Linear.

How are the Cherry Reds for gaming compared to Cherry Blacks and Black Alps. I've always though they would be prefect for me because I wanted to actuate faster with a linear switch with low force.

they are basically Cherry MX Black Linear with a lower reset and actuation point. because they are low force and linear they have a reputation for rivaling a capacitive switch.

after spending sometime on the Guruboard website I have a feeling they are not going to be cheap.

ABS M1 just came in. The rollover capabilities definitely leave much to be desired ( even on the WASD cluster ). Usually maxing out around 2-4 characters, sometimes won't even get two.

Overall though, for a 20 dollar mechanical, it is a solid buy. I still think that purchasing a higher end board like a Filco, 7G, or DAS should be the route for gamers.

So far to me, who is looking for a gaming mech keyboard. It seems that the soon 6gv2($100) blows the filco black nkro($134) out of the water for the price. Even the 7g($115) does well against the Filco. Its cheaper but 20 bucks and has more features some might need. Seems like less for more.

The 7g is $150 unless something drastically changed. The 6gv2 will probably be the best option for gamers, we'll have to see though once it comes out how the rollover and other things about the board are. It's hard to believe it will be a clone of the 7G for 50 dollars cheaper minus the USB extension + wrist rest. We'll see though. I prefer using the Filco personally over the 7G, I promise the review will be up soon ( HD cam came in last week ). I'll add in a ABS review too as a bonus.

The 7g is $115 on esea.net. Also i believe that a 7g without the audio ports and usb bus and wrist rest would be be worth $100.

Wow, didn't know that. Great price for the 7G. Definitely worth the price. I personally prefer the Filco due to the proven NKRO on it ( 7G is just as good. I still think the Filco is better in that department ). I also prefer the layout on the Filco ( Don't like the small backspace key on the 7G ). I know Imnop doesn't like the keycaps on Filcos, but they feel better to type on and play than the ones on the 7G. For the price though, the 7G is the better buy hands down.

Ya but im wait for the 6gv2 since i dont need the features the 7g provides and i get a better layout for less money.

you think a small backspace is worse than the back slash at the bottom?
