Do you think this keyboard is good? - Page 3

I wish you could see the way I would react if my battery suddenly died during a game, or if my game performance started suffering due to a low battery, or if I had to hit the reset button for some reason (reset button?).

So, I have a wired keyboard. It's like a wired mouse: it always has a perfectly solid signal, and its power source is always at 100%. When I'm gaming, I don't ever want to have to stop because my wireless keyboard/mouse needs a new battery. It's not that I think this happens frequently, but it's that because it happens so infrequently that I think it would be irritating! I mean it would be so infrequent that I'd forget about it only to be rudely reminded during the middle of a game that my battery is low.

But if I didn't play any games at all, then I wouldn't care and I would probably at least have a wireless mouse.

If you don't mind the *minute* amount of lag and replacing batteries, then yeah. The lag, no mater how small may seem like it's nothing, but it can truly be very noticeable to some. I'm no hardcore gamer, but I game a decent amount casually, and I can sense the lag with wireless mice and keyboards pretty easily.

This thread in no way calls for reccomending mech. Keyboards... Yes, they are great, but they are not worth the money to someone who is only looking for light use.

  1. We all know that the only keyboards that have NKRO are mechanical keyboards that specifically have "NKRO" listed in its features
  2. No one said that he should get a rubber dome keyboard that has NKRO because we all know that there are no rubber dome keyboards that feature "NKRO"
  3. We aren't saying that he needs NKRO. We are merely clarifying the terms in order to educate thereby clearing up any possible confusion.
  4. There are no games that absolutely require NKRO. But having NKRO does provide total peace of mind for games that end up resulting in blocked keys on most keyboards (yes, even on many mechanicals)
  5. This is why I stated that it can be helpful to know a keyboard's key rollover capabilities (or perhaps it's better to say its "key matrix")
  6. The Lycosa has a redesigned matrix so that there's a much smaller chance of having blocked keys when using the WASD cluster for forward, backward, left and right (so, when using the usual defaults)

Now, I want to put this into perspective: I have a mechanical keyboard with NKRO. It's a "Filco Majestouch Tactile Click NKRO". But do I really need NKRO? No. However, I wanted that complete peace of mind. But I could have put a ton of effort into doing my research to find a non-NKRO keyboard that will guarantee me that I won't have any blocked keys while using my preferred layouts in the games I play. However, the thought of doing that completely caused me to justify the extra cost of the "NKRO" model (at the time, I only had eyes for the Filcos on EliteKeyboards.com). I mean, in order to guarantee myself that I'll never have to worry, I had two choices: do that research thereby allowing me to spend less, or don't do the research and spend more on a board featuring NKRO.

I've been participating in the Mechanical Keyboard Guide for a little over a year now, and there's one thing I've learned in regards to key rollover: most people don't need NKRO, but there are still some who have 1 or 2 blocked keys for a small percentage of their games which forced them to reconfigure their keyboard layouts in those games. So the lesson is that they probably could have avoided that if they worked hard on finding a keyboard that promises no blocked keys due to its matrix (the internal design, essentially). But again: for most people, this is absolutely no problem.

So Speedster159, if you run into any blocked keys, then I'll be surprised. So don't worry about it.
Actually for anyone with the reading comprehension of a 4th grader that read this thread it should be implicitly simple to understand who I was talking about.

Saying no one needs NKRO is like saying no one needs to have sex for fun but just to breed.

it sure is a whole lot nicer when your just having it for fun.


P.S. Damn how many people up in this thread are from Minnesota? haha

Crazy Eddy you in here? ahahaha

If this is how you're going to be, then I no longer have enough time to interact with you.

Almost any keyboard is good for light gaming. As long as the wireless connection is good on that board which i assume it is you wont have any issues. I was gaming on a $9 logitech wired keyboard that a half broken space bar, and a stuck m button.
