p.s. how can i make it a spoiler rather than a huge quote

The best thing to do is if it has images in, just delete the picture from the quote and leave *snip* in it's place, makes the thread more tidy whilst showing that there was a picture there.

Hi, im about to get one of this keyboard, based on reviews and experience you may have which one would be best?

im really interested in this one since is white and matches my white-black-red theme that i have on my pc, becaue i have the Corsair 600T SE white thumb.gif

Rosewill Mechanical Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue Switch (RK-9000I)


or this one
CM Storm QuickFire Rapid - Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Red CHERRY MX Switches


so now let me explain something, as far as review goes the CM have more positive reviews, but Rosewill negative ones are the USB connector which many of them get broken. but i guess that should be
bad luck because a company shouldn't sell products if they are going to brake that easy right? so i guess people who ran into this issue, it may be due to using the keyboard in wrong places or i dont know smile.gif

any thoughts?

Depends on switch type you would prefer, do you want a tactile switch (i.e. where you can feel the actuation point) or a linear switch where you can't?

Also be aware the Blues can be quite loud because of their distinctive click.

I thought the Rosewill and CM boards were both by the same OEM. I would not have thought they were different levels of durability. They both felt well built to me. Now, I have used a QF extensively and like it much. I would go for the new CM Quickfire back lit with 10key board I saw at Computex though. They just announced it. the CM QF TF? The storm (and probably the TF) feel a bit cramped if you are used to bigger boards. but I have small hands and like them. My wife did say that it is hard to type Chinese on them if that is an issue for any of you.

This shows what switches people some people on OCN prefer for gaming:

You should make the colors match the switch. Was expecting more browns and less blues.

That was a very quick version of the graph, the actual graphs won't be made until I get at least 100 responses, that was made with 16. tongue.gif

The MX Blue fans could just be Razer fanboys who've tried nothing but their Black Widows tongue.gif I tried out my friends Black Widow and it felt great but my Ducky with MX Browns is waay nicer for gaming IMO.
