New Keyboard Help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am in the need of a new keyboard.
The budget is $75 shipped.

I know a lot of you guys will be saying Blackwidow for $5+ but I don't know how much I would like the blackwidow. I really like the look of the lycosa? How is that keyboard? I want a gaming keyboard that is really comfortable to type on, since I will be writing a lot of papers on it for college.

Thanks guys.

I wouldn't suggest the lycosa. If you don't want to take the risk of a mechanical, I would just go with this guy: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-015-_-Product

Decent build quality, backlit. You don't have to pay for Razers advertising campaign.

I actually like the look of the keyboard! Have you personally used and can tell me about the quality of the keys and well it is for typing?

EDIT: I read from the reviews that many people actually have problems with they keys being so closely together, seeing that I have big fingers and all, it might be a problem for me!

I don't think the keys are really closer together, as far as typing goes. They just made the keyboard a bit shorter as you can see around the arrow keys there isn't a gap before the numpad. Also the function keys are tiny. I would imagine that won't cause problems for most people.

I personally hate the slim keyboards, they are harder to type with for me.
