I mean, the facts are, if a G15 and a Majestouch were both used under the same conditions for the same amount of time, the G15 is going to break much, much sooner. But, obviously that's not the most important consideration for most people when in the keyboard market. IMO, I'd take my Filco over a G15 even if the Filco lasted half as long. It's the experience using it that makes the difference.

Edit: As far as non mechanical keyboards go, the G15 is one of the best, right?

Oh come on. I don't even play FPS games that much, but wasd are all mushy feeling. Actually, the whole home row is when you compared to the 10 key. Its night and day after 2 1/2 years of use. A mechanical board wouldn't do that.

I think the best non-mechanical award goes to the Topre capacitive keyboards.

As for best rubber dome... It's hard to say really. The G15 really is a $10 keyboard inside all the tack and extra features.

As already mentioned it is not mechanical. But it sure would be awesome to have a mechanical keyboard with all the features that come with the G15 or the G19. They already charge enough for them.

Imagine the price tag on them if they did have mechanical switches.

Nope, it is a keyboard. Many of the self proclaimed experts will tell you that a mechanical keyboard that sounds like artillery fire when you are typing is " a pleasant, experience" and that "rubber domes do not compare"

Heck, I even went out and bought a Model M, and it was horrible. I say was because I started to get a little fed up when my fingers had been reduced to stubs.

So what's the best keyboard you guys think is perfect for gaming? I'm in desire need of a new keyboard cuz i have this stupid xoxide 16 dollar keyboard cuz i needed the lit keyboards for gaming at night lol. It's wearing down with pushing buttons now cuz it takes me i notice about twice to get a melee hit on modern warfare 2. How disappointing lol.
