The red backlit caps on wasd it looks amazing, I do love the grey/white one too. I got it with the brown switches, and put WASD red o rings on all the caps for some sound deadening. For me this board is perfect.



Insane color combo.

So I'm leaning towards keeping the Razer atm, it seems my wife doesn't appreciate my new found keyboard enthusiasm and wants me to get rid of one of the boards.

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate 2013

vs

CM QuickFire TK w/ Blues





I would lose money selling the CM and potentially make money selling the Razer. But I think I like the Razer more, the keys are spaced more to my liking and not having to enable/disable the number pad is a plus. However I like the compact size of the CM and the lighting modes. Although I prefer the green LED to the blue LED. Decisions decisions.....

I've got an old Mamba wired/wireless Razer mouse as well, I'm reasonably content with it but I'm thinking about getting a white SteelSeries Sensei Raw.....
I think I've outgrown my Razer phase haha
well its a membrane keyboard. the only keyboards that stand up to being tolerble after moving to a mechanical are the scissorswitch which have a definate tactile bump. But nothing beats them MX Blues biggrin.gif
And "razer phase"thats abit harsh. itsabout getitng the hardware required. Like me i got a ducky shine 2, but there's no mouse on earth that can replace the utility and comfort of my razer naga epic.
No other company makes a mouse thats that high in utility and as comfortable and shaped well enough to accomidate my grip. and no that logitech monstrosity doesnt replace the naga, that thing made my hand feel like it was bleeding after using it for 20minutes. Infact i want to start snatching up razer naga epic sealed boxes offa newegg and ebay and stuff so i can have mutiple backups incase something happens, you know? hope to have enough of em to last until USB can't be used anymore. because there's no mouse in the world that replaces it. well that is until razer makes a new naga epic with the same shape.

They make some poorly designed stuff, they make some amazing stuff. They're trying to reach a level of utility that they can provide for a great mass of gamers, give them something they need.
If i hadn't come across the epic i wouldnt have ever found the mouse that suits me.

Stick with the razer, you seem to have more favorable pros for the razer vs the CM.

That sure is a tough choice..
To each his own but I would choose the more compact one, but thats just my personal input.

stickyg1, I think we're all sorry to here that. The wife making you choose... I was almost in the same situation. Does she know you got the BlackWidow on the cheap though?

If all fails, I'd say listen to your heart and sell the TK. Any other keyboard I would say otherwise. But seeing as you like the BlackWidow as well as its colour and size, the subsequent problems brought on by the QFTK may not be worth it. (The LEDs, the numpad that's sort weird, etc).

I mean, you already have enough/the same problem with both since they both have a weird bottom row for keycaps... Might as well keep the full-size one for future customising and as you said, you like the green.

Comes down to what you use the board for and desk space estate, and the issues mentioned above.

Good luck.

I mean I don't have to sell either I suppose. She could get over it, but I really don't need two boards. I'll throw the CM up in the marketplace and see if it gets any bites. It's only about 2-3 weeks old.

Really like the look of that board except the red WASD. Didn't like them on my DS3 which for me would have been more appropriate, but red really clashes on that gray and blue keyboard IMO.
