How loud is the Trigger? Like compared to a Black Widow Ultimate, or something with the same switches as a Black Widow if you would know? Also how is the weight on the Trigger? I like how solidly built the Black Widow feels, do most mechanical keyboards have a nice weight to it? (guess that's a question for all) smile.gif

Loudness depends more on switches that anything and with Black Widow packing Cherry MX Blues being the loudest ones. As for quality and sturdy feel, just about any mech keyboard will be better than Black Widow, but also more expensive.

Yea I knew loudness all depends on which switch is being used, but didn't know what the Black Widow used, so thanks for that. So in general blues are the loudest? I'm actually interested in getting two keyboards, one for home and one for work. Not really concerned about disturbing anyone at home, but at work I don't want to go hacking away and annoy everyone. My wife's younger brother has the Black Widow, so I know how loud it is, and I don't really want anything like that. Which switch is known to be the quietest?

Blu cherry is so noise that cause disturb or distractions when u play ?

blue: clicky in both sound and feel (will wake cats/babies in the same room)
brown: clicky in feel less clicky in sound
black: smooth sturdy feel no click just the sound of the key bottoming out
red: super smooth(very easy to push) same as blacks on sound(maybe louder due to faster /harder bottoming out)


if you want quiet a set of blacks or reds with silencers is ideal
i hope that clears things up

oh yeah and model m: wear ear protection (will wake neighbor/dead)

and clear is about the same as browns in terms of noise

My Trigger is pretty damn sturdy in weight. Like others have said, if the BlackWidow feels solidly built to you, almost every other known brand out there will be better. The Trigger is no exception, feels like a tank. As for loudness, only thing loud I can think of is the loudness of bottoming-out.. If everyone at your work is using chicklet keyboards, you will be the loudest on any mech keyboard without O-rings.

OK well thanks for the info. I guess I've made it very apparent how much of a noob I am if I think the Black Widow feels nice, and according to everyone it's one of the lowest quality mechanical keyboards. redface.gif
LOL....well my decision has come down to the CM Trigger or something like the K90, but again because I am such a noob with all of this, I only know the big names like those. Is there anything else I should check out?

What are your requirements for the keyboard (switch type, macros, backlighting, TKL or 104, etc.)?

The Black Widow, Black Widow Ultimate, Black Widow 2013, Black Widow Ultimate 2013 are blue Cherry MX keys. The Black Widow Ultimate Stealth and yet to be released Stealth 2013 versions are brown Cherry MX keys.

I have Razer products and have had good experiences with them and feel confident in their products. However you'll find those that dislike them just like any other products you'll have different opinions. I say if you have a retail store you can try typing on a showroom model and get the feel for it to make up your own mind if it feels good to you or not.

I've finally narrowed out the playing field and I don't have anything against Razer Stealth versions for brown MX Cherry keys I'm looking for but I think I've decided to go for a new Ducky Shine 2 when they come out about next month.

They are tough to scout down for purchase and inventory is limited. Some good links to look at for mechanical boards would be Mechanical Keyboards.com or Tankguys.
