Anyway, do have any proof that most competitive gamers use mech keyboards? Because I was under the impression they didn't.
I actually love gaming on my 6GV2, it really is all about personal feel. But to state that opinion and feeling as fact is just dumb.


OP - Buy from newegg, you don't like the mech send it back get a rubber dome.

I hope no one misunderstands, I love my mechanical keyboard and could never go back. I just personally haven't found them to be better OR worse while playing games.

I know others like them, I know some people on this forum have posted that they preferred rubber dome for gaming.

A keyboard is a very personal thing and really there is no single best type for every person. Even within mechanical keyboards there are a lot variation in switch type, key type, etc.

I think Yoko is the case for ignorance is bliss. Let alone a clear display of how youth in this country really don't care about how they present themselves.

As for mechanical boards, I tend to think of it as comparing a Corolla to a BMW M3. One is a simple tool for getting from Point A to Point B, and the other is designed with the driver and the experience as the core aspect. And most people don't realize the difference till they experience; in their mind, the Corolla does everything they could ever imagine (getting them around), but the BMW just does it in such a way that it really changes how you view the experience of driving as an whole.

Another example would be a Canon Powershot compared to an 5DMk2, and so on. Most people simply do not understand the difference because they've taken no time to look into it, or as we've seen above, view it as "old and out dated."

when you get to competitive gameplay it does make a huge difference, from 6+kro to response times.

I'm sure it's the same case as with mice. People claim they use the latest and greatest Logitech/Razer/Steelseries doohickey, and yet most of them probably use something bog-standard. The Samsung DT35 keyboard is very popular with professional Starcraft players in Korea due to how cheap it is.

Wow. OCN is the only forum I know of where you repeatedly get accused of trolling for expressing an opinion.

Although I don't agree 100% with Yoko I want to express my belief that it's right for him to disagree with the majority (and the mods).

I got this for Xmas and it works fine for portable applications. Full size keyboard. Feather light for portability. Small size - no wasted space Tenkeyless with embedded numpad. Quiet. Nice Layout. Easy to press keys. Easy maintenance to clean up. Tactile point. Lettering is crisp and although decal style will last a long time. Best of all it was only $18 with free shipping from DXtreme.


So anyway, I'm with Yoko. Power to the People. Stick It To The Man.
