XArmor U9BL-S

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Keyboard name is in the title. Just wondering what People think of it.

I am looking for a mech keyboard, form what i have read the Mx browns would be the switch type that would suit me the most. And I like the fact its Backlit, however i haven't ever heard much about the brand.

Anyone own one, or know anything about them?

it was either this or the Steel series 6gV2.

I have the U9BL (Blue switches) and I like it a lot. The boards are made by iOne like the Razer Blackwidow, they're of decent quality overall.
If you think Browns are the switches for you, then you probably wouldn't like the Steelseries 6GV2 as it uses Blacks, a vastly different type of switch.

Same here.

I'm using the blues right now, I really don't like their feeling.

Is difficult to explain (mainly, but not only, because my poor English) the click is nice but, unlike the one from the buckling spring keyboards, sounds a bit fake. I can feel the two stroke actuation due to the blue switch construction.

I'm sure that the clear switches are the ones for me, but I dont like the only backlit keuboard that comes with it (the deck tactile) so I ordered the brown xarmor, i'll try the browns and eventually i will mod it with the clears.
