I like my Rosewill board: it's nice, minimalist, and is bright white. As long as it works, I couldn't care much less. If I were dropping the big bucks, Ducky and Filco, possibly WASD too, would be my choices thanks to durability. Maybe I'm weird, but I like my gadgets to last long after the next model comes out (hi there, Sandy Bridge and Phenom users!). Cooler Master sounds like they have a much better reputation, here at least, thanks to the price and build quality.
Well here's my beef with Corsair. The neutron GTX costs as much as a M5Pro (which is significantly faster) and isn't as good.
Keyboards? Nope. I think they're overpriced. Cases? Overpriced with poor quality (I.E. the 750D which @fido thinks is a really good case and that cases shouldn't be bought by quality. Come on.) 540D has some glaring issues with it and the users just brush off my opinion as "It's YOUR opinion"
Speakers? nope. Just as overpriced as Logitech is. Nothing from them catches my eye, if ever.

I would say they're more like B&O

I quit watching him after i see how his channel gone northwards of the gamer bro hardware community. His videos are no longer entertaining :\

That said, if the stars allign and they used a good factory for the board, I'm interested in whoever has experience with a trigger to lend their insight on the quality of the board although I have to say, probably not for me since it's way too gamerific looking and all that CM branding is a turn off.
I agree on that. The original RK9000 was nearly a case of when all the stars align but too bad some moron decided glue is not necessary on the USB headers. Oh god
That said though after a few months i stopped hearing my RK9000 expanding and contracting. Is that supposed to not happen to something with a metal backplate?

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.
Lol ... blue ... It's only as stiff as a brown.

Kind of an out of place question for this thread, but since it was brought up, what don't you like about the 750D? I liked that case and planned to purchase it very soon. What about it is low quality? Please feel free to PM me if you don't want to go further on in this thread with this discussion.

2 keys only? Can't agree there, but each to their own lol.

As a C70 vengeance owner I would say quality is excellent, my only gripe being a lack of locking system for the bottom filters
and only an issue when moving the case.
Quick fix was some electricians tape to hold them in place, (ghetto mod smile.gif )

Of course, as I have said before, people generally don't bother to join in forums to praise their purchases, but they love to vent their spleen when things aren't quite right, so it is always very easy to dig up negative posts on any product.

okay ? time again. Cannot for the life of me figure out if NumLock key is considered a "row1" key.
Thanks.

Edit: I'm a dummy frown.gif just looked further and it was listed in the keycap description.... sorry for the post!

Yeah, saw those, really considered buying them...but didn't. Weren't they on sale for much longer than 24 hours though?

2 keys is light indeed. Any real gamer is typically going to have 3 keys pressed at once. That's 2 directional keys and a sprint (shift) or C (crouch) key. Rarely you'll get 4 keys pressed at the same time, and even rare 5, it's basically impossible to use more than 5 keys at once since your other hand is on the mouse and I don't think any keys you press on the mouse count as keys on your keyboard for key rollover?

 

That said I agree with paradigm that a mechanical keyboard shouldn't in any way affect your gaming experience unless you were on a BAD keyboard. Even a $20 logitech keyboard should give you what you need for gaming. I simply can't agree that mech makes gaming easier...but I'm also of the opinion that a linear key doesn't necessarily make gaming easier either. Maybe fractionally better, but not worth getting a worse key switch for that IMO if you like tactile keys.

For future reference, the top two rows are R4 (F keys and numbers), then the qwerty row is R3, asdf row is R2 and the bottom two are R1. thumb.gif

They were left over from a previous groupbuy, not sure how long they were up for today, but when I checked there were 3 sets left and those sold in minutes.

I have to disagree with that part. A lot of cheaper logitech boards don't allow the shift and space button to be registered at the same time. I know my k740 did not mad.gif
