haha no, they are straight up awful. Chalk it up to much hilarity the night I was trying to post them... missing cables, bad SD cards, 3 year old running around screaming in the background. I'm hoping to get better ones up today or tomorrow finally.

Fixed! I had only listed half of each as available so that the OCN folks had enough to dole out for the contest thing, but now that's over, so the numbers are reset properly.

MX Browns are Tactile
MX Blues are Tactile & Clicky

We are expanding to boards with MX-Blacks.

Tenkeyless means the number pad is missing so the boards overall size is smaller.

I own both.

The ABS M1 is like that first beater car you got, while the Ducky is like a nice sedan fresh off the lot.
It's a whole other animal.

Since I'll have to sell this keyboard what Backlit mechanical keyboard would you recommend? Someone mentioned an XArmor U9BL-S LED backlit mechanical gaming keyboard. Are they any good? $200 or less is doable.
The XArmor U9BL-S should be a good board, but I HIGHLY suggest getting a Deck Legend Frost Tactile if you have the money. It's under $200 (but only just) though it's built very well and really one of the best cherry MX boards made.

If your looking for a backlit mechanical your only options that I've seen are already listed.

Razer
Xarmor
Deck

Razer and Xarmor and made by the same OEM

the new Xarmor has better usb placement imo and is available in either brown or blue switch's.
the xarmor also has full NKRO where as the Razer does not.
Your support if you do have an issue with an Xarmor I wouldn't say is rock solid at the moment tho, if warranty plays part in your decision go with Razer ..or Deck(not to say they have awesome Customer support) But they do have customer support available and it isnt going anywhere, anytime soon.

the Deck's without question a step up in quality, but the font's and the Uneven backlighting because of the poor choice in font design bothers me to much to spend what they ask for them, Also something about the enclosure just bothers me.

I'm in the market for a new keyboard, and I think it's time to go mechanical.

What one should I buy, Cherry MX Blues or Browns?

if you do a good bit of typing, blues, mostly gaming, browns imo.

Browns have a bump feel when they activate, blues have a click and a bump.

If you do a lot of typing the blues will be better for you; the feedback and force required are better for typing.

If you plan to game and type an equal amount or even game more than type then I suggest the brows. They have a small bump when half way depressed that lets you know the switch as activated. This can help you double tap faster in games like UT. They are also lighter which makes double tapping easier.
