okay guys, i'm planning on a mechanical keyboard, especially after trying my friend's blackwidow. i spared $150, and i want backlight, MX blues and possibly with the ten keys. i tried blacks (the one asus makes). i was searching, and i found some keyboards:
Ducky Shine II White/MX Blue:http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=160
Max Keyboards X7:http://www.maxkeyboard.com/max-keyboard-nighthawk-x7-backlit-mechanical-keyboard.html
the last three has blue switches (which i loved), but G710 has brown, which i havent tried yet. all except blackwidow have white backlight, and i would prefer white backlight too. also, these lack backlight but are very nice imo,
KBTalking Pro (MX Reds only) (Bluetooth, which is why its in this list):http://kbtalkingusa.com/full-specifications-and-features/
and the customized-OOB keyboard,
now i know these dont have backlight, but both can get changed keycaps, customized, and one is like that from the start while the other is wireless. basically what should i buy? to be honest, i would like to have backlight+custom keycaps, but im scared of some keys not showing the backlight, which immediately makes it stupidly for me. the kbtalking has red switches available now, which kinda concerns me as i would like to try it out before i spend $170 on it. should i just buy the sampler kit from wasdkeyboards?
sorry for the long post btw, just too many questions even after reading the guide+some search on geekhack.
some additional info
now this is the most controversial. MX Reds and blue backlight? not my taste exactly, but i havent tried the reds so i cant say anything about it. also a guy over at corsair forums bought keycaps from WASD and installed them on his K90, and they look like they shine like most the other keys, so thats a relief.picture:
