My Logitech G11 finally died so I'm looking at getting a new one, will mainly be used for gaming among other things. I play FPS the most if that helps, Cheers!

I was thinking this one https://www.pccasegear.com/products/36375/logitech-g610-orion-backlit-mech-keyboard-cherry-blue

or...

https://www.pccasegear.com/products/34634/logitech-g810-orion-spectrum-rgb-mechanical-gaming-keyboard

Is the 810 even worth going for the extra $40?

Doing some browsing and a lot peeps recommend the Corsair Gaming K95 https://www.pccasegear.com/products/34960/corsair-gaming-k95-rgb-mechanical-gaming-keyboard-cherry-brown

No way I'm spending $269 on a keyboard. Please don't tell me some of you in here have gone as far as spending that much on a keyboard. That's just crazy!! I reckon considering $150 myself on a keyboard is steep...Any of you guys using Mechanical Keyboards, what are they like? big difference from a normal cheapo?

I'm still using a G15 do they even make keyboards with an lcd screen?
I like backlit keys but I don't need no disco.

steelseries 6gv2, built like a tank. I've rage hulk smashed this thing and the key caps went flying, put them all back on and it still functions like a tank (of a keyboard).

mechanical keyboards are all the rage at the moment, the main factor to consider should be the switch used. I'd suggest trying the different cherry colours out in a store and work out what style you prefer. They vary in price by brand, materials used, lighting and 'gamer' branding.

The Logitech G310 is a sweet board. Love the small form factor, gives you more room for all those awesome 'flick o' da wrist' hip shots on your huge Logitech cloth gaming mouse pad. :)

I'm leaning towards the Corsair Gaming Strafe RGB Mechanical Keyboard Cherry MX Silent. Cheaper than the K95, but still damn! expensive for a keyboard....

https://www.pccasegear.com/products/33310/corsair-gaming-strafe-rgb-mechanical-keyboard-cherry-mx-silent

Ill shop around should be able to find it a little cheaper...

it's pretty good

you can get several different mechanical custom designed boards through Massdrop sales, but they get expensive when you have to buy another keycap set for $50 if you don't like the ones they comes with

Is there a low button profile? i.e similar to the mac keyboards. I don't know why but I've always found mac keyboards the best, the tine button travel is great and the overall design is fantastic. Only issue is that it works like s*** on windows. Remapping keys creates odd issues and not all keys work.

I too am looking for a new keyboard and mouse, as mine are starting to show issues. However I'm cautious as I know many Logitech gaming and some others I've used briefly have narrower keys, which completely throws me after 20+ years of touch-typing throws my brain with the slightly altered key width/spacing.

I bought a Corsair K70 RGB Cherry Red about two months ago and I can definitely say I'm unhappy with the number of missed keystrokes.

Ended up getting the Corsair K65 LUX RGB Compact Mechanical Keyboard Cherry Red. Can't believe I spent $175 on a keyboard, so ashamed of myself. I'm actually really loving the fact that it's compact, I mean really who uses the side number keys unless for accounting purposes.RGB lights are pretty cool but in terms of this mechanical Cherry Red keys I'm a bit whatever on the all bulls*** of it, not much difference to a Cheapo, gimmicky BS I reckon...

I'm behind the times, what is this mechanical jazz all about? Is it significantly better or is it just unnecessary pizzazz? They do look sweet.

Mechanical keys just feel a lot better. If you get a Cherry MX brown, you know its going to feel like a cherry MX brown. Plus it's just cool.

Have a picture of a cat sitting on a keyboard to brighten up your day.
