Re: Anyone Using A Mechanical Keyboard? - Recommendations?

I have a 60 dollar credit at Best Buy and they have this in stock at my local store.

I am gonna get it this evening and let you guys know.

Awesome let me know what you think.

BB usually has a pretty good refund policy (at least in Canada) so you should be able to return it, if it really isn't a good fit.

Crap. I do too. Is that an issue because it takes more pressure to push the key or is it a key travel issue? I also press keys really hard, though.

If it is, I haven't noticed it over gummy keyboards. My typing speed is about the same on both.

speeds not the issue, it's the pure amount of noise i generate.

I'll bet it's the sweetest music you've ever heard. (roomates, spouses and kids be damned. )

I have an older model Razer Blackwidow (with blue backlighting). It has held up well and have had no performance issues. It is friggin loud. My wife can hear it in the other room while watching tv. lol

Didn't get to grab one yesterday. Ended up going to some vip Toyota party at my local dealership to mingle with swindlers I know. Gonna try to get by Best Buy today and grab it.

Any update on how you like the Keyboard? I got the Logitech G710+ in January. Replaced my G15v2.
I can NEVER go back to membrane.

I loved it so much I ended up getting a Filco Ninja for an executive assistant here in the office. She loves the mech's also.

thanks,

click click thunk click click click click thunk Mechanical and love it!!!!

Picked up a CM Storm Quickfire Rapid for 60.00 Its 10 key less which is great for me. Ive noticed better typing accuracy, and more responsiveness in games. Its heavy and very well built and inexpensive for a mechanical (Ive read somewhere it was a re badged version of a Filco $$$). No more logos on this beast either, the only one is on the back portion of the keyboard below the f-keys.

I cant compare the switches to any other keyboards because this is the first modern one ive used, however I dont need to push the key all the way down for it to register, at least not with much force.

Will be using mechanical keyboards from here on out!.

con:: loud when im talking on the phone so people are fully aware im not paying attention :P

I have exact the same problem! This is the only drawback of mechanical keyboard.

The Blackwidow from Razer is nice. Not sure if it was really worth it but the sounds the keys make are music to my ears. And dat feel.
