Hey guys.

I am looking for a mechanical keyboard that is rather quiet and not overly expensive. I am currently using the Steelseries 6gV2, but I am not really feeling it anymore.
Is there anything good for 120$ ? I don't know much about the switches which one are quiet and which one are loud, but I want that clicky mechanical quality feeling, but a more or less keyboard that is not noisy.

thank you in advance

You wont get clicky without noise, you can get tactile with less noise, and that would be an MX Brown switch.

MX Blue= clicky and tactile
MX Brown= tactile
MX Red&Black= neither, they are linear switches

$135 shipped FC660C's isn't a bad price at all considering what you're getting. You have to remember that you're getting PBT keycaps on Topre, plus the cost of a Krytox lube mix, and the hours of labor involved (Disassemble, open switch, lube, reassemble), and then adding the cost of springs and a possible plate brings you pretty darn close to the price range of Topre. Also, which switches were you going to get in the first place? Vintage blacks would cost you another $25, and ergo clears even more.

Get the Leopold for ~$125-$140 shipped (depending on location) if you really want to try Topre. You may like them after a week or you may not. 

Resale is good on them and you'll only end up loosing $20 or so.

those LZ casings are really nice, bit pricey though smile.gif

and on the subject of fatigue, do take care fellow key punchers, make sure your hands are at a good angle, and not just the "defacto standard as set out by the ergonomics mob" because A: everybody is different, and B: they keep changing it anyway, as I currently sit at work with my keyboard almost at chin level due to their latest data! smile.gif

Experiment with different elevations of your hands and play around with your seating position, only you know when you feel comfortable, that will make even typing on an old mechanical easy.
