They don't even have to be cheaper. Any board from them that doesn't advertise "anti-ghosting" or a high rollover is going to have 2KRO. I haven't payed attention to logitechs boards in a year or two, but their old g15 or whatever had the LCD screen had a 2KRO despite costing over $100.

2KRO means in the worst case scenario, after holding two keys down, the third key you try to press won't register. Depending on the board, you will be able to get more keys pressed down if they are the right ones

At the same time your example wasn't completely realistic. Strafing doesn't apply to frostbite engine so there's not really a reason to press WA when you're moving/jumping. W+Shift+Space is usually going to be the most keys you'll be using at the same time with Battlefield. 6KRO is enough....you only have 5 fingers on your hand lol NKRO is more 1337 gamer marketing to me

The k740 could use 4 key rollover I believe... but you could not do shift and space at the same time and have both register. It was frustrating for bf3.

The keyrollover rating refers to the worst case scenario, not the best. So on a 2KRO board, you will be able to press 4 keys in some cases, but in at least one case holding two keys won't let a third be pressed.

The cheapest keyboard with "good" rollover I know of is the Microsoft Sidewinder x4. It's $40 and lets you press 26 keys, making it usable for some two player game on the same keyboard with both hands for each person.

Yes I understand that, but the k740 does not allow the shift and space button to be used simultaneously, it does not matter about the rest of the keys pressed.

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 :\

You, you I like.

And you have to admit, Linus is still much much better than the likes of Logan at TekSyndicate/whatevertheheckhe'scallingitnow. And, IMO at least, I would rather watch his reviews than Tiny Tom Logan's, which are 1hr of content that could easily be done in 30 minutes, 20 minutes if you got rid of all his belching.

Even with all his gamer bro videos, he does have some amusing or good stuff every now and then.

green keycaps / classic layout / classic function keys / blank OS key

I only plan to use the WASD keys & other particular keys...I'll put the keys I don't plan to use in storage...maybe install them on the Black Widow that I gave to my son thinking.gif

After taking a 2nd look, I realize that these might not be laser sketch but no prob as long as the letters don't wear out fast.
