Greetings Everyone,

I'm doing a debate in my head as to which mechanical keyboard is best. I have one of the $15 variety ones, and my typing sucks on it. I normally type upwards of 80wpm and I do programming. I'm also running a linux distro (centos) with Xfce - DE (Desktop Environment) - so I don't game with it. I'm looking in the used section as keyboard seem to be well upwards of $200.

SO my choices are ...

  1. Das Keyboard - Prof 4 (no back lighting) - brown / blue cherry mx switches - seeing them around the $70 mark used.
  2. Ducky Shine 5 - mechanical blue switches - RGB lighting - about the $120 mark (lighting controlled on keyboard - no software to install).
  3. Corsair K70 - (silver / black) edition - RGB (iCUE to set up - means need a pc / save profile to keyboard - then no - need for iCUE).
I even took it a bit of step further - and thought of getting funky with retro - typewriter type key caps. I'd consider an Azio - but their not true cherry mx switches - I believe Azio makes their own. Also not rgb - thought not a deal breaker.

IN a perfect world - a mechanical (cherry switch) that's also wifi would be awesome. But save that of building it myself - or spending $100's of dollars, it seems cost prohibitive.

SO WWYD?

Look forward to all your responses. .
