Guys I've had more time with that Logitech G13. Have to admit that at first I didn't like the romer G tactile switches but I think they've grown on me. The 1.5mm to bottom out takes some getting used to but after kind of accepting the differences between it and my other mechs I'm thinking the G13 is a really solid keyboard. Its build quality is much better then the K70 and better then my poseidon. It still doesn't roll with my Pro 4 build wise though visually I think it's the best looking of my boards.

Really tempted to switch to using the G13 as a main keyboard but the lack of dedicated media functions kind of kills it for me still.

The included wrist rest is very nice. Kind of low profile, has a plastic backing with rubberish feet to keep it in place. Thing is an extremely nice feeling wrist rest and I'll look to buy another one when this one goes out.

Now have my Pro 4 and Poseidon at work.

I actually just returned my G Pro. The switches are nice, but I honestly couldn't like them after using Topre for so long. It's the only 'silent/tactile' switch I've found myself liking. If I had never tried Topres, I think they'd have had a chance.

I'm giving the HyperX Alloy FPS RGB a shot and so far I like the Speed Silver switches. Feel like a slightly stiffer red, smoother than Cherry MX switches, but it's taking a bit to get used to the shorter registry.

I hear you. I've used that das pro 4 for the last 4 years. Even other mx brown keyboard's I've tried don't have nearly the same smoothness. I really want to try blues though I don't want my keyboard annoying my friends when running some co-op.

I was more poking fun at the title where it says, "Mechanical Brown Switches". That's about as generic sounding as it comes.

The switches on the Velocifire surprised me compared to my Peo S w/ actual MX-Browns. But I've started to like the MX-Black switches in the OCN Edition Ducky, but my other half swiped that from me to use w/ here setup (which it also has my set of Miami Night SA's on it).
Part of me is wanting to try out the new "slim" boards from CM, but they haven't released the 60% that I was wanting to try out.

I haven't heard any bad things, I'm just not a fan of their case designs on their full boards but part of me likes their TKL offering.

I remember one video review suggesting that it's response faster for twitch shooters. But I've not seen anything more about it other then it behaves just like any other MK.

Just replaced the stock keys on my K70 with Corsairs double-shot keys. Fairly happy with them. Feel better quality and heavier under the fingers. The texture will take some getting used to though I think I like it. One thing that's disappointing is the keys don't look at bright though I kind of expected that. Overall pretty happy with them. They add some much needed heft to the feel of using the keyboard.

*Ok, I really like these double shot keys for the K70. Things make the whole keyboard just feel higher end. Now I'm thinking about picking up some double shot for my other keyboards.

Did a simple video on some basics of mech keyboard maintenance when I swapped my keycaps. Forgot to mention sound damping in the thing though I don't personally use o-rings under my caps.
