Just got my XArmor U9BL-S

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

After arguing with myself over actually "needing" the Logitech G19's LCD.. I decided to finally try a mechanical keyboard, after much research I decided on the

. Having a USB hub was important to me.

This thing is great, it's my first time ever typing on a mechanical keyboard. I got the one with brown switches. There's something so thrilling about typing on this thing. The keys feel so firm and the overall build quality just seems hundreds of times better than any non-mechanical keyboard. I'm just trying to find excuses to type on this thing (part of my reason on making this thread! )

Did I mention how much this weighs? I picked it up and was like "Holy crap..." it feels 3x heavier than my G19 and the keyboard is much smaller than the G19. It screams quality.

Being able to spam 30+ keys on the keyboard and having them all register at the same time is pretty cool. I don't see any 'real world' uses for it though.

So far I have no complaints, other than the fact I randomly hit the wrong key as i'm adjusting to some slightly difference spacing.

I highly recommend the switch to a mechanical keyboard if you haven't already done so!

Anyway... Pics:

Was one of the reasons that pushed you to get a mech because of the lights?

The same Amazon vendor that you bought your keyboard is offering a discount on it through BoomSlam as long as 20 or more buy it.
Too bad it's just for US residents.
