But expensive clothes aren't any better then cheapo ones. With a mech keyboard the difference is huuge.

Uh, yes they are. They look nicer and the quality of materials and stitching is much, much better. I mean, I recently bought a coat for £180 ($285) and the difference between it and a cheapo £80 one was huge. It had proper silk lining and much softer materials.

Keyboards, I know there is a difference... but £90 for a keyboard!?!?!?!

There aren't any slim Mechanical keyboards I know about.

I really don't mind if it's slim or not. I just want something hard wearing, great to type on, macro keys and relatively cheap. It seems mechanicals don't fit the last tick box.

Trust me it's more then worth it, my widow is awesome. The feeling is much better, I find that I type even faster now and even less typos at that. The black widow also doesn't move on the desk on me. Now i find it's a little louder then my old logitech g110 due to the fact that i hit my keys hard, and with a bit more force being required i don't bottom out hard anymore.

ecchi: True point some of those deck are small though, but alas they cost a lot.

What's the difference between tactile and linear? Also, how "clicky" is the Razer? I mean, I could perhaps justify a Razer if Logitech send me a replacement...
post #27 of 29
The linear switches have an almost consistent force through the entire stroke of the key. This means that when you first start pressing down on the key all the way until you completely bottom the key out as far as it can go, the force you feel at your finger remains the same. Not much feedback besides when you feel the "thud" at the bottom.

The tactile switches have a slightly elevated force around the midpoint of the stroke of the key. So, when you have pressed the key down about halfway, the force increases slightly for a brief moment, and then goes back to normal. This gives your fingers an indication that the key has been pressed so you can stop pressing the key and let up to move on to another key faster.

As they described it much better then I could.

Alex if you want to stick to rubber domes, ditch logitech I find there's to be of the worst quality they are extremely mushy and wear quickly.

This Logitech is really nice and is built very well, it's just the keys that get a battering. I don't know whether I type too hard or what. This keyboard was £50, but uses Scissor Switches, not rubber dome so it actually types really well!

I'll see what Logitech say. Maybe they might give me a new board.
You can get good quality keyboards for cheap. What I would recommend for a nice, long-lasting keyboard would either be a Dell Quietkey from 1996 to 1998, or an IBM Model M. They can be found used for as little as 20USD.

Just to sign off, I bought the Razer BlackWidow and very much enjoy its clicky keys

Logitech sent me a brand new Illuminated board under RMA, but i'm unsure as to what I should do with it yet. I can't really go back to it and but I feel bad selling it.
