Coz I wanted to try the mechanical keyboard craze, thought that was already pretty obvious since I stated that I opted for the Entry level BlackWidow Ultimate instead of immediately spending $200-300 for a keyboard.

oh yeah, forgot to mention. i have a rosewill rk-9000 and by the end of the month a leopold tenkeyless, can i be added?
The Realforce is meant to be better built, but at that price range, I'd want something really unique, which the HHKB certainly is.

I have a HHKB (got mine very cheap) and it's one of my favorites.

I wouldn't say that reds are hype, as the point of all the cherry switches is they all tailor to someone's personal preference. For me, I wanted a linear keyboard for gaming, but something light as blacks fatigued my fingers quite a bit.
Trust me, they've been blown out of all proportion. People want them because they are rare.

I want to try out MX browns. What's a cheap keyboard you guys would suggest?
There's an old Compaq board, the MX 11800 which uses brown switches and is relatively easy to find on eBay. However, old tactile/clicky Cherry switches do not age well, so the experience of typing on one of these may not be in any way comparable to a new keyboard.

Just got my Noppoo Choc Mini with brown switches. I love it because it is so small that desk-space is never an issue. The browns are also much better for my typing style than the blues, so it seems like a perfect match for me!

oh if this threads being updated I guess I might as well post again been on a Das Model S Ultimate lately. I think it has a quieter click than my BlackWidow and the glossy finish is giving me nightmares, but I like it...

Hm.. I've been thinking about the Choc Mini. It seems to have an abundance of features that most other keyboards with better build quality don't offer. It would be a nice board to take around. Is it only available for MO from some forums? I thought I saw a thread on Geekhack sometime ago. Can anyone link me to one?

OT: widdy lives with IEATFISH?
