Recommendations for a new mechanical keyboard!!!

Hi!

I've had Asus Strix TACTIC PRO since 2015, and I think it's time to change.

I'm looking to buy a new keyboard to replace this Asus Tactic Pro keyboard and hoping for some recommendations.

Requirements:
  • Mechanical keyboard
  • Wired
  • Including number pad
  • ISO layout(UK)
  • RGB Lighting
  • Suitable for work(programming), surfing on the internet and gaming.
  • Ideally not too loud but usability is more important than silence.
  • Volume Control: Dedicated Button(Mute) and Volume Roller

I have recently seen these keyboards:
  1. Corsair K70 RGB MK.2
  2. Asus ROG Claymore
  3. Fnatic Streak
  4. Das Keyboard 4Q
  5. Razer BlackWidow Elite
  6. Steelseries APEX 7

Price range up to ~270$


Any recommendations from the list or other?

That's his 2nd same content thread, I answered him in the first one that the only keyboard fulfilling his needs is Corsair Strafe RGB Mk.II on MX Silent.

Speaking about said keyboard and while i am not a huge keyboard expert but the only mechanical keyboard that had everything i wanted and was available locally and in my price range was the Corsair Strafe RGB MK.II with MX Silent switches and its a pretty good keyboard even if its from Corsair

It sells from about £134 on Amazon all the way up to £150 on Scan

https://www.overclockers.co.uk/corsa...kb-0a1-cs.html

I have had mine for almost two months now with no problems
Edit: next time please dont make a new thread asking the same question the day after you already made a thread

Thank you for your recommendation. What do you think about K70 RGB MK.II? It has a better material quality.

You might try out the Roccat Vulcan 100. It's actually much, much better than I expected. The keys feel "just right" to me. I'm coming over from a Corsair K65 RGB LUX and it's not even close (the Roccat is so much better.)

Not sure about the ISO layout, but Roccat isn't an American company, so you might get that if purchased in the UK (ask them). https://en.roccat.org/Keyboards/Vulcan-100-AIMO

But honestly, ever since RGB introduction, Cherry MX based keyboard prices skyrocketed, especially those with Cherry Silent switches, there's literally no keyboard without tons of useless crap, which the only purpose is ro bump up the price.

Hi all.
I'm looking at roccat suora fx (76$), Logitech g413 (92$) and fnatic rush (112$) and can't make up my mind.

I think if I go with fnatic I should go with brown. Never used a mech keyboard so have no idea what I should go for. Mainly working in win and gaming (fps, rpg).

BTW what is the diff between mx and mx silent?

Thx.
