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.
he mentioned he had owned more than one Razer Lycosa I don't think Cherry MX Blue switches are a good choice for Gaming.

the Adesso MKB-135B has alot of value for it's price but there are a couple complaints mainly the wobbly keycaps.

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!

Thermaltake is launching a couple Mechanical Keyboards under their eSports lineup. one of them is called the Meka.



the i-Rocks KR-6230 is the same keyboard only it has Cherry MX Brown switches instead of Cherry MX Black switches and has Blue LED instead of Yellow LED. you can purchase it on eBay for $69.99 it normally sells for $89-99 Manyak reviewed it here.

if this is out of your budget I suggest a Dell AT101W you can purchase one on eBay for less than $30.

I've just pulled the trigger on a Majestouch Tenkeyless Tactile Touch. Pretty stoked. I game and type and I think I would prefer the ergonomics of 87 keys, so the mouse is closer.

Thanks to the OP for such a great thread and everyone else too.

Alright, bought some White Lithium Grease. I should have enough time to find a keyring and some twisty ties from Potato Bread by time it gets here.

Found this on geekhack, http://cgi.ebay.com/Cherry-G80-3494-...#ht_1415wt_906

Apparently a good quality Cherry Red with NKRO. According to a geekhack poster it retails at a B&M for $150. So the exorbitant shipping price is just some kind of fee subversion and the total price makes sense.

Heh, I have one of those ( in white ) and have posted a short review of it on OCN/Geekhack. The B&M price is more close to $100 US Dollars, I had family in China who purchased/shipped it over. I believe EMS shipping was around $30 US Dollars.

Christine, have you seen the upcoming mouse by Zowie?

http://www.zowiegear.com/index.php?o...d=130&Itemid=2

I was going to pick up the Xai until I saw this. Going to pick up the EC1 ( 5% smaller than EC2 ) with the black coating.

I wouldn't bite without knowing what sensor it'll be sporting.

The specs are the same (besides the DPI) as the MX518's sensor the ADNS 3080. If they got rid of the prediction and bypassed the bug that the MX518 has then it might be a great mouse.

Did you read the article? I know it does not specifically state which sensor they chose ( other than it was an Optical ), but it seems as though Zowie had pretty good presence of mind during the whole selection process of a sensor. Went through 7 different sensors and didn't choose a laser based sensor because it did not pass their standards even though it is the new technology ( especially with laser tracking on cloth pads which a lot of gamers prefer ). Really sounds like Zowie is making solid mouse, the size is also important to me, even with the ****ty sensor on the Kinzu, I'm using it because of the smaller size.

Interesting. Usually I'd turn my head the other way, but I could always use a third option on my list. When does this thing release anyway?
