Just got my Xarmor U9BL-S (Updated with pics!)

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I didn't believe the hype about using a mechanical keyboard, but WOW I love typing and gaming on this compared to my Lycosa and G15. Every keystroke feels smooth and the keyboard itself is heavy and solid. I would have bought one of the OCN keyboards but there were no LED ones.

Either way, I can't go back to my Lycosa at all.

If you guys want pictures or a video or anything, let me know.

Updated with pics!

We would like to see some pics on here as proof that you did bought the U9BL-S, including the box it comes with. Where did you buy the keyboard?

I got it from amazon.com and it was shipped from a place called max geeks. I'll take some pics when I get home then.

I added some pics, sorry about the crappy camera. We should be getting an hd video cam soon so I can record something.

I really want to buy this keyboard. The only thing that makes me doubt is the stiffness of the keys. I am concerned about "resting" my hand lightly on the keys and pressing them that way. Can you tell me how likely it is that this happens?
I also like to "crawl" with my fingers to the key I want to press (as if i was looking for something in the dark with my hands). How forgiving is the u9bl-s with this?

Both of those should be easily doable because the keys don't press in THAT easily. But it's very smooth and less resistance vs the blue keys. I game with my fingers sitting on the keys I usually press like the WASD and have no problems with accidental presses.

post #9 of 26
Ooo looks good!
If I could have brought myself to spend more this would have been mine.
I just bought a Das Ultimate to replace my Lycosa, since I know I won't be able to type on it at all after getting used to the Das.
Congrats!

Nice board. It's either this or the Blackwidow for me..can't decide.

PS: Good to see your playing Rift!
