As linear (non-tactile) switches, these are one of the best types for gaming. When gaming, having a tactile bump does absolutely nothing because you're going to be bottoming out anyway. So these give you a very smooth feel. Also, the actuation and release points are at the exact same position. So games that require a lot of double tapping become easier than on any other keyswitch. However, most people don't enjoy typing on them that much.

Didn't like the small backspace button and the large enter button.

Oh well.


I'll be happy enough with my majestouch
post #5129 of 14564
Has anyone tried one of these:

http://www.buy.com/prod/dsi-mechanci...209847083.html

I need a new keyboard (I've had 2 lycosa's that had a known problem) and want to try mechanical, but don't really have the money for other ones listed here. I think I may have seen some negative opinions on other DSI boards though.

Thanks!

Edit: It would appear after further research that this board is bad, bad, bad.

Never heard of it, but from the looks of it "Ewwwww"

Another option is this
http://www.provantage.com/adesso-mkb-125b~7ADES09Q.htm

It's one of the cheapest mechanical keyboards you can find around, and still acceptable quality.
