Thanks!

Yes, detachable USB. There are also channels that allow the USB cable to be routed straight out, or to either side.

Here's a pic.

Hey guys,

As of the past few days I've been pondering a mechanical keyboard and I'm not sure what to do about it. I've seen the Steelseries 6Gv2 and I really like the look of it (minimalistic, the typical mechanical keyboard look), so after a short search I found that I can get it for just under £75 shipped, but after asking a mate of mine he tells me to save up and get a better one, you know, something a little more iconic. My budget is the £80 mark, and I'm already hard pushed to spend that as is... but I might push it a little further.

He said a friend of his bought a keyboard from PCHome (this one) not sure if it's the exact same advertisement, but that same Filco Majestouch. Converted it works out to around £69 given the current exchange rate. To me, this sounds a little bit too cheap to be true, and I've always been wary of ordering things from overseas for the sake of being scammed and whatnot.

What do you guys think? Good deal? Ever shopped with them before?

A mechanical keyboard sounds brilliant right now, and I'd love one to save some space on my desk and make typing up assignments and typing in general a little more enjoyable. smile.gif

If you like the 6Gv2 for it's minimalism it might be worth looking into the filco tenkeylesses or the leopold posted a few posts above this.

The Razer BW isn't as bad as some people say, and it's the cheapest.

Do you know what colour switches you would want?

I know a few members over at Geekhack have bought from PChome before and they appear to be legitimate. I'd definitely go with the Filco since I like its simplicity style and minimalist look.

I've looked through the mechanical keyboard guide at the different types of switches but I'm not really sure. The only mechanical I've ever tried is the Razer BW but I never got a chance to actually demonstrate it with Windows. I just don't like the look of the BW, it's too aftermarket. I'd prefer something minimalistic and stock looking with a small logo here and there, like the 6Gv2 or the Majestouch.

Tenkeyless sounds appealing, I rarely ever use the tenkey but it's something I feel like I'd miss if I got rid of.

Noise isn't really an issue, if that helps.

Ah, OK. That helps. I might consider that then.

EDIT - I also wouldn't mind one with blank keycaps. That'd prevent people from using my computer, heh.

I totally agree with you on blank keycaps thing. Not only will it prevent people from using your keyboard, it also looks so damn cool just sitting there. lol tongue.gif

I wish id known that the 6Gv2 doesn't have to be kept in that huge plastic wrist-rest. But i do really like my tenkeyless with mx blacks. They are quite an aquired taste though. Browns or blues seem to be the middle ground for most people. I wouldn't have any other switch than blacks now though.

On the blank keycaps thing. yeah, it works. LOL
