How heavy is the board?
post #3814 of 36848
After thinking about it for over a year, finally bit the bullet and got my first mech keyboard, a BWU. Absolutely loving it. Had some apprehensions about the glossy plastic, but it's not a problem at all. Actually raised my last highest WPM (108) by 6 in just one try. Didn't expect that much of an improvement so quickly, but there you go. Sorry for the poor quality pic, only had an iPod around.

I haven't weighed it exactly, but the shipping box indicated a weight of 6kg, so taking the layers of bubble wrap into account, about 4.5-5kg.

Not bad for a keyboard the width of a Model M tenkeyless.

I've been very happy with my Genius KB-21e w/rubber domes for quite a while (i think i got it 3-4 years ago, and the image does show i've used it quite a bit with all the faded paint and shiny keys ) until, around a month ago, the keys started to get stuck when pressed (causing a lot of accidental and not-so accidental deaths on games ). This made me look for another board. But having some spare cash and looking something better than the ghetto boards i see over here, and looking to pair my wireless mouse to get rid of cables once and for all, i fixed my eyes on a good wireless board. I've had reading around and i knew of the existance of the mechanical keyboards, but $100+ price tags (plus international shipping fees) kept me far, far from even considering one.

Around that time, ol' lurker Phaedrus2129 posted for sale a wireless mechanical keyboard (a xArmor U9W ES w/ MX Blues) for a pretty decent price. After sorting out the cash, i finally bought it off him.

Got it two days ago, and so far i'm in love of it. The softness (the most used 3 year-old rubber domes are still harder than these MX Blues), sturdiness (this thing is almost 4 kg without batteries and it stays on place while gaming, while i had to block the Genius one so it would not move so much) and sound (i love its clickyness ) are awesome. Plus it's wireless, and i have no longer any cable on my desktop . Also, the blue LEDs do match my sig rig color theme (all blue )

Only "cons" i see is that now i have to buy more batteries (i only hope these lithium batteries i bought last me for a while), lack of media keys (i used some of them), and this is an english keyboard (gotta change language with the language bar to switch to spanish) but these cons are nothing compared to the sheer awesomeness of this board.

Only one last thing: Phaedrus, dude, the package i got was so huge i thought it had like 5 keyboards on it Best packaging ever, survived my local customs mishandling

What kinda of keyboard is that? I've been wanting a spherical keycap for years.

Also, I just got my Black Widow Ultimate!

It's a 1970s IBM terminal keyboard -



It uses IBM's beam spring switch mechanism, which could be described as being like an extra-smooth buckling spring with the lightness of a Blue Cherry switch.

Might be a while before I can use it on a PC... It will happen though.
