My brother has had one for a year, no problems at all. Not my type of board though.

Hey what's up guys!

I should be receiving the PX-5000 for review:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Perixx-PX-5000-Backlit-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B00BM7OG6E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1386693879&sr=8-1&keywords=perixx+5000

Mech cherry Black switches.
Will be interesting to put it up against my G710+ (brown switches) and see its gaming performance.

I'll let you know when I have it and my thoughts of the KB itself!

You shouldn't see any difference in gaming, mechanical keyboards offer minimal to zero tangible benefit in games.

EDIT: Now that the KOTM prizes are being sent out, we need to formalise the process of claiming your prize if you win.

To claim your prize, send me a PM with the following info if you win, so the staff can organise your prize.
Quote:
  • Competition thread link:
  • Prize Won:
  • Full OCN Username:
  • Full Name:
  • Full Address & Post/Zip Code:
  • Tankguys Email Address:

(*NOTE*) Physical Prize Winners must create a Tankguys account and fill out their full name and shipping info.
https://www.tankguys.com/customer/account/login/


In addition to this, please also include a link to the post where I declare you the winner for my benefit, to make verifying you as a winner easier. thumb.gif

All this info will be put in the club OP.

Oh and it probably goes without saying, but I'll mention it anyway, if you try to claim a prize when you're not due one you'll be banned from all future KOTM competitions. tongue.gif

by that statement - do you mean mech keyboards vs normal gaming keyboards?
If so I would highly disagree.

Other than that - mech vs mech - again I would disagree.
A blue switch or black switch is much harder to press down than a brown or red switch.
This would change the FEEL of the keyboard and thus the experience of the game with that certain keyboard.

Blue switches are pretty easy to press unless you're so weak you can't rip toilet paper to wipe your own bottom. :) 

 

That said blues are 5g heavier to press than reds and browns, so watchu' tawkin' 'bout Willis?

To clarify my point, you shouldn't expect to see any improvement in how well you do in games just because you're using a mechanical keyboard. Mechanical keyboards offer several advantages over rubber dome keyboards, but despite what certain gaming peripherals companies would have you believe, making you better at the game isn't one of them.

Also MX Blues aren't that much heavier than MX Browns or even MX Reds.

I disagree.
Coming from a membrane keyboard, moving to a mechnical keyboard, my precision and more so Nkeyrollover feature that the mech have completely changed my gaming experience.

What games are you playing where you need to press more than 6 keys at once?

BF4 & BF3.

With my membrane kb, I often found myself stop running as it couldn't deal with the key presses at the same time.
Say: WA+SHIFT+SPACE (that's only four - yet I noted problems there)
post #18590 of 36854

Never had any problems gaming on my G15.

 

I could press shift, C, up, right and E at the same time no problem. I don't think I've ever needed to press more than that ever.
