Question

Posted

Hello all,

Decided I want to change my keyboard from the stock Dell keyboard I have used since 2006.

I think I want to head towards the Mechanical side - love the touch and sound! - and would just like to hear your opinions on your favourite Mechanical Keyboards before I decide on purchasing one? Will generally be used for gaming, media keys would be a plus but not ideal.

So I have the Corsair k90 and love it. It uses red switches as pointed out a few times in here which for me, don't really suit me that well due to me not doing a lot of gaming (in fact only once a month or so). I generally do a lot of typing and I wouldn't say the k90 was great for that.

I was going to change to a das keyboard because they have blue switches and I was told that they're significantly better for typing. I ended up sticking with the k90 because the build quality is SUPERB. The fact it has a metal backplate impressed me.. oh and because I have a corsair, mouse, mousepad and headset...

If someone here has experience with the K90 and Das keyboard I'd love to hear your thoughts on both comparatively.

Speaking of the sticky key problem on K90 keyboards, I didn't have this happen on my K60 until just now. Hopefully this isn't something that reoccurs frequently.

Logitech uses [b]red switches[/b] too, and has also a volume knob like de k90 (same form) has less macro keys but the whole keyboard is mechanical, I think it should make even less noise because it has not aluminium cover as the k90 (that was a very tempting keyboard before my k90 indeed) but it costs a bit more.

The Logitech G710+ actually uses Cherry Brown switches. Typing on the G710+ is also quieter as it has dampening rubber rings on all the keys to soften them. The aluminium shroud on the K90/K60 shouldn't affect sound at all.

I'm leaning towards the G710+ but everywhere seems to be sold out, is it even released in UK?
