I'd say browns are the most popular, so if being too mainstream was your worry then you're golden with any of your above choices. biggrin.gif

Oh right, from all the adverts for mechanical keyboards I've seen Red's seemed the most popular, I guess it might be because they are gaming orientated ones and Red's favour gaming. tongue.gif

I am really looking forward to buy a mech keyboard. I am currently using a Saitek Cyborg ( about 2 years old ) , which I love and works wonderfully. Two of my friends have a blackwidow , I guess I fell in love with it ( not too "expensive" either ) . I'm looking at mech keyboards right now and damn , there's nothing that comes close to the Blackwidow in terms of design ( man that Blackwidow looks awesome in my opinion) and in terms of lighting ( again , my opinion ). That Blackwidow lighting is excellent , you can clearly see in the dark and that is a must for me. From what I have seen , either some of them don't even have lighting or either they look poorly illuminated. Why can't they just take a popular "gamer models" and make it mechanical ? I'm not a fan at all of those old looking keyboard and I believe many people are on the same boat as me. Anyways , I respect everyone and your keyboards , I'm just saying my opinion on mechanical keyboards in general !

Sign me up.

That's a das II (with cherry blues, as I think they all have), a model M, and a no name futaba switch board.

I think I have a whole bunch in the house I used to live in, when I left I still had no idea what they where worth. Random PC boards and probably some of those apple ones with the alps. I mean to get them back at some point.

in the further future, i'd like to build me one o' them phantom kits, when I get monies and decide on a switch..... and then get a whoooole bunch more monies for sexy spherical key caps.

Picked up this IBM model PC/AT this morning from wcass over at GH. He modded the hell out of it and did a fantastic job to boot! I have a feeling all my cherry keyboards are going to be severely neglected for the foreseeable future.

I know...I've been looking for forever. Funny thing is. This model PC/AT was actually the first one I had ever typed on as wcass introduced me to buckling springs via this exact keyboard.
