just added a cm storm from amazon for 60 bucks. Added my wasdkeyboard keys to it....not too bad looking. And no CM branding on the top of the keyboard, only on the back. :-)

its actually kind of a nice keyboard. I own a filco, leopold, and now this. Have owned a razer too (not that great). This one is actually quite nice for a "cheap" board. The keycaps just make it feel that much better.

well most mechanicals are built quite nicely anyways, right, so I wasn't exactly expecting the worst.

Is it weird that my blackwidow feels much better to type on than my filco? They both use blue switches but feel different. I think it may have to due with the thickness and weight of the keycaps. For example, the tactile bump on the blackwidow feels less pronounced and better, imo. And they feel slightly lighter. And I'm not the only one that feels this way. I remember seeing a thread on this on geekhack.

Thermaltake released a new keyboard, supposedly "it's a plunger switch, a mechanical-like hybrid that is more affordable than a traditional mechanical switch."

Probably very similar to this i-rocks keyboard but for twice the price. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823204034
