[Official] Mechanical Keyboard Club - Because saving money is boring. - Page 683

post #6821 of 36998
just bought my first mechanical keyboard today, got to say i like the tactile feedback, i got the CM Storm Quickfire Rapid with blue switches, no picture taken though, i am kind of missing the numpad although when i find i need it i use my g13 as a replacement, mostly just use it in CSS since i have my buy binds on the numpad.

letters on the lycosa keycaps i have were fading out i used this as an opportunity to buy a mechanical keyboard and see what the fuss is all about, anyways im really liking it so far and one of the best parts is that i didn't have to spend $100+ for a keyboard.

[edit]

are there any good wrist rests to go along with the keyboard?

dye sub pbt. Vortex was suppose to come out with some for cherry switches, but nothing yet. That is a realforce, only ones as of now where you can get that from (black on very dark grey dye sub). Closest you'll get for cherry boards is engraved Pbt.

For some reason people that do dye sub don't want to dye sub black over dark keycaps.

The QFs need more logos on them so you don't forget what KB your using biggrin.gif that was the biggest factor keeping me from buying one.

My CM Storm Quickfire with MX Blacks, 40A O-Ring Mod and PBT engraved keycaps. My first tenkeyless keyboard. Sorry for blurry pics... old camera phone..

Depressing each key is so smooth now, its awesome, also while I was at it, I lubricated the stabilizers, my back space key was a bit squeaky but some model white grease fixed that.

I sold my Ducky Shine with MX browns, I found those switches are far too light for me, I'm keeping my Semi Custom WASD keyboard with MX blues. Typing and gaming wise for me, blues and blacks are definitely my favourites.
