[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 1075

post #10741 of 36807
Hello Ocn I'm here to get advice from you guys in buying a new mechanical keyboard the ones that I am looking right now are Tenkeyless tactile touch keyboard from elitekeybaords and the tenkeyless linear touch keyboard. I used to have an i-Rock keyboard it wasn't that bad but my cat manage to broke it IDK how but he did it, right know I am using one of those plastic keyboards and they're PITA to use them. So basically what I do is light writing like essay college, I play FPS, Torchlight 2, Skyrim, etc. Are the above keyboard good enough for my necessities also I'm on a budget right know so i don't want to spend more than 120.00 dlls. Thank you in advance biggrin.gif

wow i rather use my phone then to type on that, if your on a budget the Cooler Master Quick Fire Rapid is the perfect keyboard for you, its over branded but still your getting hell of a keyboard at $60-$65, Leopold are good but its double the price

So the ones I mention before aren't that good? the QF looks good and everything but i want it in black case I know that the red switches have the black case but it seems that it comes with red and my rig is all blue, this may seem dumb but I would like to have it all black or black with blue lights.

new keycaps


post #10748 of 36807
So I am finally getting fed up of my squeaky spacebared Steelseries 7G enough to want to replace it, hopefully get something ordered last minute before xmas to.

Due to the design unless I open it all the way up(take the back off etc) there is no way to lubricate where the squeak seems to come from and id want something totally non conductive anyway and I have no idea what that would be.

Aside from the squeaky space bar I like the look/feel of the 7G, particularly the wrist rest design. Though maybe in terms of key travel could do with something a bit shorter and not as "hard" ? also less then/around £100 would be ideal..any recommendations/suggestions ?

I am in the UK for product availability reference.

EDIT:
Seems like the Cooler Master QuickFire TK Red may be what I would be after.. unfortunately it doesn't come with a wrist rest frown.gif
