[citation][nom]SneakySnake[/nom]What kind of cherry switches? They've used red in the past, which I really don't like. Give me brown or blue switches[/citation]

Their site says they are Cherry MX Red switches.

Looks good, the individual backlighting will be fun to play with. Wonder if one day they will do an ergo mechanical board

I have this board with the Macro keys on left side. Its solidly built. The only gripe I've had is the weak plastic on the wrist rest that attaches to keyboard, mine have broke. I game on my lap sitting on a bean bag, so from constant moving around I figure it was bound to happen... Also its sustained plenty of rage quits, masterbation, and silly fits with plenty of beer! Holds up well!!!

Is it fully mechanical or is partially mechanical? There's a difference you know like K90 being partially mechanical and Logitech 710+ being fully mechanical. We need more info on this kind of things.

[citation][nom]sublime2k[/nom]$130 for a keyboard? Too bad you can't buy skill.[/citation]

A skilled gamer would notice a significant difference between an average rubber dome KB and a great mechanical KB. Mostly depending on the game, strafe jumping in Quake Live is much harder on a cheap rubber dome KB.

Besides that, I've spilled beer on my Ducky Shine twice and it still works perfectly fine. It was completely filled with beer for hours while on/lit the first time. As long as you get one of the best mech KB's they should last decades.

Well, that's disappointing. What do gamers have against MX Browns? They're light, the actuation and release points are very close, they're quieter than blues, and you don't sacrifice regular everyday typing.

Yeah, I think I'll stick with brands that actually how to make mechanical keyboards (Ducky, Filco, Leopold). The amount of marketing from these gaming-oriented devices is sickening.

[citation][nom]chumly[/nom]No macro keys and a price point almost 50% higher than the competition. Next.[/citation]

Also at the same price as their current K90 keyboard, which is virtually identical, but DOES have macro keys. Not quite sure what they're thinking here.

Sadly, people still buy into the marketing gimmicks.
1,000 Hz reporting rate that are intended to deliver "fast, accurate input for gaming."
Need I say more?

You are the best of liars if you are saying you do not use facebook... :lol:

EDIT : Or Twitter, or Myspace. Or any such thing actually.
