I want a true tenkey. I use it quite a lot.
sry i read it but my brain told me it wouldv been "tenkeyless"biggrin.gif
I very well understand that u use ur keypad often, i also use it with the calc

Here is my white choc mini which shows it pretty well. Not as nifty as the realforce caps/control swap but still nice :-)
the white one is nice, what do u think of the keycaps and overall about how the look changes when its used a lot?
IF the white ones show less "grease" ill get the white one, else i get the black one, its a bit cheaper:D
Ofc the happy hacking is "better" but its not in the price range i would buy for gaming/surfing and for coding i happen to have to write some ****ty exams with iso layout before i can decide my tool for work.(

What you read is correct. Their functionality can be reversed, though the keycaps cannot be. So your new Ctrl key legend will say "Cap" and the Caps Lock will say "Ctrl."
Thx!

Ok i just got the CM Storm Rapid for 78$ total including tax and shipping.

 

Should i connect via USB or via P/S2?

 

Also i hope i wont regret the black cherry keys.

The keyboard has "NKRO in PS/2 mode" so you should connect it via ps/2 if u think you need. It will safe you an usb slot so thats another pro ps/2:D

I cant tell u if u will regret the blacks, if ur looking for a typical "click" sound you will be disappointed since there is none. If u dont learn/get accustomed to no pushing the keys down all the way you will tire quicker then with other keyboards.
If u get accustomed to the blacks and/or only play with it ull be fine.

Thank you for the response.

 

Well this will be my first every mechanical keyboard so i dont know what to expect really as i never ever used one before in my life. I am using a Logitech G110 at the moment and i do hope CM Rapid Fire with black switches will be an improvement.

 

I dont do much typing and the only typing i do is the forums to be honest. I will mainly use this keyboard for gaming and everyday use of internet surfing etc...

 

I like the compact design as my desk is not so big and the only downside is the no backlight but i will give it a shot.

 

I emailed CM Storm USA and told them if i can change the keys to brown and waiting for response. I guess it costs 5 more $ and because of this they might have to cancel my order, and i would have to wait for refund which will be a lot of time and i will probably just go with the black switches.

 

I will mainly game FPS and RPG games. For racing' or 3d person action games i will be using a gamepad.

Talking about NKRO, did you guys see what they offered at Computex? 30KRO OVER USB. Pretty impressive. It's more than enough, but it isn't NKRO, and don't say the forbidden word (*cough*overkill*cough*).

You would need to be typing with every single limb on your body to even come close to hitting 30 keys at the same time.
Just saying.
