If you'll be using it for both gaming and work you may want to start with a keyboard with brown switches. I have not used a keyboard with browns and only have one full layout mechanical keyboard so I'm lacking in suggestions currently. But I know there are plenty here who have them and will give you ideas soon enough.

There are also ideas through the last several pages of the thread if you have the time to look while you wait.

The Noppoo choc mini is another option if you are looking to go a little bigger with more keys no backlight though. The race and pure are pretty much the same as the choc mini and the poker but with backlight.

What about the CM Storm Trigger?

As csm said, the Race.
There are group buys on them on geekhack, you should go check it out thumb.gif


@Kaname, I would recommend the MX Browns.
They are tactile and quiet at the same time. It is the best switch for first timers, and it is especially good for you usage. (Gaming) Not stiff as the MX Blacks - Not light/linear as the MX Reds/Clears - Not as loud as the MX Blues. Just perfect.

Now you said you wanted you needed 10key and backlight, there aren't really much to choose from.

- Ducky Shine for $159.99: http://www.vendio.com/stores/E-sports-Gaming-equipments/category/shop-mechanical-keyboard-by-br/catId=3982936
Your choice of LED color

- Deck Legend for $179: http://www.deckkeyboards.com/product_info.php?products_id=96
The only option would be the MX Clears for the tactile you need

- CM Storm Trigger $120: http://www.cmstore-usa.com/trigger-mechanical-gaming-keyboard/
The best option IMO, I ordered one myself. Made from the same company that made Filcos, Costar.
197
MX Browns - Backlight - Wristrest - 10key

So out of those three, the CM Storm Trigger is your best bet smile.gif

I got the Trigger because of: Backlight - 10key - Wristrest
Wanted the backlight for aesthetics like you, don't need to look at keys when typing - 10key, needed it for the things I do daily
Can't wait to get it smile.gif

The build quality is said to be really durable.

You can buy the keyboard from groupbuys on geekhack:

May I join?

Bought a Razer BlackWidow Ultimate:

402

401

It's the first time I ever touch a mechanical keyboard and I love it, so comfortable to type with compared to the Logitech G15 I had.

Does anyone know if I can actually set the lighting to another color or stuck to blue? I love the blue, just curious! tongue.gif
