why? biggrin.gif well it fits what i want the best (other than the X7) but some people have had problems with them. G710 was already off the list, so was the K90. mionix has blacks, which i hate (no racism intended) and the KBTalking has reds. basically i was down to Ducky, WASD and blackwidow. i learned most keycaps give backlight, so thats a relief for me too. the fact the blackwidow has macros is a point for me, so im still debating on it. i can change all the keys for just $50 too, so im guessing i have to choose between the blackwidow and ducky. any other backlit keyboards for $150?

I like my K90, but I have to agree. The half-assed implementation (lets be honest now) of the mechanical switches really is noticeable. I still love it though <3
I think I will be getting a new one though, and I'm seriously considering the Das Keyboard Model S Ultimate, and the backspace keycap is going to be replaced with one that has "Dammit!!!" printed on it tongue.gif

the mionix zibal has black switches, which i hated (that much that i would prefer some rubber dome keyboards)tbh, that color is like the greatest backlight color ever, but the MX Blacks kill the deal :/

 

Shine 2 if you want backlighting

 

WASD if you want custom keycaps and don't care about extra features but a well built keyboard.

 

Max x7 & BWU are iOne built rubbish.

I have a MAX Keyboard and the quality is consistent with other iOne built products. Some of the leads on the MX switches were not trimmed properly and the overall quality of the board is in question since it's based on the troublesome U9 design.

 

Razer, just because of their poor customer support and the number of issues they had at launch I wouldn't recommend. Build quality is also not great.

Oh man, wish there was a tenkeyless backlit keyboard with white leds, mx browns and media keys (like k90 and g710+).. Getting kinda bored of my QFR after I got to type with browns, and I really really really need a backlit keyboard.

There's the Tenkeyless Shine2 with white leds available... Not sure if I should buy that one even though it doesn't have media keys...

Got my new Filco Tenkeyless Ninja Majestouch today. MX Red switches. I so love this thing smile.gif.
post #10668 of 36943
I know the iOne's aren't as high quality as many of the other brands, but I've had zero problems with my backlit wired U9 with browns. It can't compare to my Model M or my Ducky (greens) in terms of build quality, but it's served me pretty well and it had all the features I wanted when I bought it nearly two years ago.

I just got a QFR (blues) for the holidays and I want to find a good custom case for it. Any recommendations?

Wish there was more of an market for that so people would make them! There were some acrylic cases I saw I think on mechanical keyboards . com but imo they were super ugly!

thats pretty explanetory, +rep. but one last question, is there any other keyboard that has backlight and is overall good? im set on the Ducky with keycaps later on (i found some portal ones+memes, and some from WASD) but just wondering before i drop $150 on a keyboard. also i recently read about the synapse 2.0 issue, not that i go to LAN too much, but he fact that macros not working when not connected to the interwebz is a bit annoying, it feels like razer is tracking me. also iOne? i didnt list such thing headscratch.gif
