Newb Needs Help on Mechanical Keyboard choices - Page 2

post #11 of 29
instead of asking us, go check some out for yourself and tell us what to buy haha.

I wish we had the same options available.

I have checked out some for myself and I advise the DataHand Professional II.

Ideally, you should have several keyboards for different purposes: for typing, for gaming, and for showing to others.

For typing: Mx blue, mx brown or topre
For gaming: mx black, mx red.
For showing: lots of back lights, colorful keycaps and multimedia switches.

I note a distinct absence of the el supremo.

Well I'm a very slow typer and will do very heavy FPS gaming. I also edit video and edit photos if that matters.

I want something thats really comfortable and ergonomic.

is this good for gaming?

Okay guys I'm all set on these

Ducky:
9008-G2
9008

OCN:
DK 9008-BELLB
DK 9008-CELLB
DK 9008-BEPLB (is the wrist rest necessary?) (what are PBT keycaps?)

Are the OCN ones 9008G2 or 9008? Whats the difference between 9008G2 and 9008?

I'm still open to gaming alts like the G110. Don't recommend something thats shiny and a fingerprint magnet. That said, is the Das a fingerprint magnet?
