Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

is that a uniform layout, or do you mix it up on the mods?

the mods are slightly non standard so i can fit in an arrow cluster, though the pcb supports many different layouts, from standard to split backspaces and can make the right side a 4x6 1u key grid.

right, now, there isn't an easy way. But if you like the layout, i'm going to be selling a similar board on GH soon.

Woo! Just got my first ever Green Alps board! Not only does it feel great for linear switches, the board is new old stock!

Hello fellow Mech' users.

I'm looking to purchase my first, and having never used one, some input would be appreciated.

I'm looking to spend around an absolute maximum of £80, and being in the UK, there isn't much I can choose from.

I've been looking at these following ones.

CM Storm Quickfire Ultimate - MX Browns - £77
CM Storm Quickfire TK - £70
Razer Blackwidow TE - £70
Razer Blackwidow 2014 - £85
Razer Blackwidow Expert - £90, depends if its worth the difference
G80 Cherry - £60

My requirements are obviously, decent Mechanical switches, and from what I can see, I would want either Cherry MX Reds or Cherry MX Browns. I'm a rubber dome user looking to improve my speed, accuracy and overall typing experience, I will be gaming, programming and typing alot during the lifespan of this keyboard, as is expected.
Another thing I would want, is a back light, which I am aware the G80 doesn't posses, I do alot of night typing and the need for a external light source is discouraging.
Also, I would like a keyboard with the full number pad, as I also do spreadsheet work and I can't get used to it not being there.
I am not fussed on how loud etc they are, I just need functionality as you can see, and the best experience I can for my money.

Thank you OCN, feel free to recommend any others too.

Boom. I think the Browns are the best "general purpose" switch out there. Good for gaming, good for typing. CM Quickfires are good boards (I'm really hesitant to recommend anything from Razer), and have the backlighting you're looking for.

Good starting point.
