Yeah it sure is. If I were able to re-write the entire 10-page OP, then that's one of the things I would improve.

Can someone explain to me what polling is? It seems specific to USB buses since they are shared but I'm not sure what that really means..I understand IRQ's and how those are handled in conjunction with scan codes and drivers, but I don't know what polling is. Sorry for being a noob!

I'm flip flopping on my decision again for key type. I'm back to leaning towards blue switches, especially because Ive discovered a microcenter somewhat close to me that has Das pro model S keyboards on sale for only $100.

I know blue switches are not necessarily looked upon as the best key for gaming, but how much better are they for gaming when compared to your typical rubber dome board?

Yea I just noticed the Microcenter deal...but it's sold out at my place .

I can't comment on your question, but according to what I've read and observed and watched, I'm sure they're much better than rubber dome.

microcenter by me has an open box deal on SIIG mechanical keyboards, $19.99. Should I jump on this?

I would definitely jump on it. Can you return the open box product if you found out it was damaged?

I reserved for pickup, and the open box deal isn't showing up anymore. Hopefully I can go pick it up tomorrow. I'll let you know.

As far as returns go. I'm not really sure to be honest, but if anything was wrong I could probably get a refund since they're a retail chain. For $20 I'm not that concerned anyway.

Yeah, unfortunately the policy can very from store to store.

Hey, if it really is a mechanical, for $20 it's a steal.

I know siig makes some rubber domed keyboards as well. Fingers crossed that it's not one of those.

Is this deal in SoCal by any chance?
