steelseries 7g is mechanical there is also the steelseries 6gv2 coming out it's basically the steelseries 7g without the multimedia ports and a larger backspace key it will retail for $99.
thanks for the awesome information.

But, if you wanna get technical, I think you're right.

I can't stop laughing.

Consider the Adesso MKB-135B. Basically an iOne M10, but with NKRO.
It is.

It does 6 keys like normal, and then when you press the 7th key it disables the oldest keypress. And if you just press a ton of keys at once, it sequences through them.

I uploaded this a while ago, when I wrote a review for them:

I wrote a nice reply to this, but the intertubes seem to have eat it.

I talked to Gigabyte at computex a few years ago. They had one, but would not sell or give it to me no matter how much I begged. Gave me a nice hat though. It looked like a nice board and if you can find one I would pick it up. Its big! I think it cost too much for them to make is why they stopped. The v2 was going to be a typical crappy "gamer" board with rubber dome and only wasd mechanical keys. Bleh, do not want.

yeah it was a nice keyboard, I would of chosen it over the steelseries 7g.

last year I was tossing and turning why they discontinued it and came across a Yahoo Answers post that said Gigabyte wasn't happy with the OEM and here is why.

1. Not well manufactured, especially the laser inscriptions on the keys don't aligned well.
2. Not use faked switches to balance larger keys. (space, shift, enter, etc) The reviewer's space key get jammed sometimes.
3. Don't support 64 bit OS. (Vista or XP64)

they did carry the GK8000 from where i from.

Well, I ran into some extra cash this morning. (hard work pays off!) It's not much, but I was thinking about what to do with it. I figure I might as well get myself a mech keyboard and see why TwoCables loves 'em so much. I'm guessing a Filco would be the best place to start?

Don't support 64 bit OS? Never seen a keyboard that didn't before.

Greetings Overlock.net forum! I am a new user here, and as this is my first post, I'll get to the point. I stumbled upon this thread while researching a keyboard to purchase. I am in the market for one, but I am unsure which I should get. I was hoping those more technically knowledgeable than myself might be able to help me purchase one. My parameters for buying a keyboard are as follows:
1.) I don't want to spend more than fifty or sixty dollars on one (I know that excludes most mechanical keyboards).
2.) Of course I would prefer a mechanical keyboard, but if there isn't one within my budget, then I suppose I wouldn't mind a rubber dome keyboard, as long as it is higher quality.
3.) I will use my keyboard for a combination of purposes: I perform secretarial work, so typing is of course quite important; but I would consider myself a gaming enthusiast as well, with an emphasis on RTS and strategy-based games.
4.) I don't need anything beyond the traditional qwerty layout, as I know that the bells and whistles (such as connectivity options, extra keys, etc.) will raise the price substantially. However, if I could get a keyboard with back-lighting, it would be ideal. As an example: http://www.amazon.com/Saitek-Eclipse...3083845&sr=8-1 (Although I don't believe that is a mechanical keyboard).

5.) My computer does have a PS/2 port (which computer doesn't?) so I would be able to harness the full capabilities of that connection over a USB port. One question I do have though is, what difference does a USB to PS/2 adapter or vice versa have on the keyboard's performance, responsiveness, etc?

I salute Manyak for a well-written, thorough, articulate, and extremely helpful mechanical keyboard guide! :] I was hoping to PM Manyak for advice, but I realized that as a new user, I do not have that privilege yet. Thank you for taking the time to read my post, and I welcome all helpful replies!
