looking for a FPS gaming keyboard

I guess mx black is best for fast FPS gaming or is this wrong?. I found the old steelseries 6gv2 that got mixed reviews on amazon, is there anything newer and better?. Or just recommend me the best keyboard for fast fps games like Quake if mx black is not the best. Right now i am using a Arvo compact gaming keyboard.

I'm very satisfied in shooters with Corsair Strafe RED but honestly, I was as satisfied with Logitech K200.

It doesn't matter what switches you use, whatever is most comfortable for you. I prefer browns personally, test out some mx switches in a store and see which color you like the best if you want a mech.

Would you say that it is worth it for me to upgrade from my Arvo compact gaming keyboard to a mech?, is the response time alot better?.

There is no difference in "response time" between a membrane and a mechanical switch, just feel and noise.

I have a razor blackwidow, and a stealth keyboard. I like them both, and I use both of them. the blackwidow mechanical keyboard is great for games, because it lets you know exactly when the key has been hit, but at night this might be a issue for others in the house. the stealth is a very quite keyboard, so you have to take that extra split second to make sure the button was actually pressed, but game play at night does not disturb others.

I put o-rings under my mechanical and it's actually usable at night. While gaming you usually use tons of force so there is literally no meaningful press delay on membrane keyboard. Especially in shooters. Whoooole different story in RTSs and MMORPGs

Romer-g switches sounds very interesting for gaming.
Quote:
"we were also made aware in a conversation with Logitech that this keyboard is proven to be up to ten times faster in response than other keyboards out there. In gaming, this can mean life or death, as any bit of lag, whether from the device or the server, will do nothing but to try to make you fail. At least with a product such as the PRO, you can be certain when you blame lag for your failure in the game, it is one the server or ISP side, not that you are in any way at fault."

I think i will try a Logitech G PRO keyboard!

I dont think blacks are best for fps. Its either very light linear switch which let you ride the actuation point easy or a switch with shortest travel distance like mx speed.
