Some keyboard purchasing advice

discussion

#21

Yea I am looking at the redragons and the rest, for now mine will do, I have a couple of keys that gets stuck but I can deal with it.


#22

If you are happy atm then don’t change. BUT if you do decide to upgrade one of these days, def do consider mech


#23

When I have some spare cash I will def do so, I will ask you for advice when I do


#24

Forgot about this bad boy


#25

Wow that looks much better. Is it really loud though?


#26

My brother has that exact KB if I am not mistaken. Much quieter than MX Blue switches


#27

Thanks. I will think about it. :smiley:


#28

See that is the keyboard I want, just without the macro keys

edit

I have one with macro keys but I never ever use it. So I rather pay a little less for something that I will use instead of everything I dont


#29

That’s not my friends on discord say xD. Lots of people would say the Cherry blues and Razer greens are loud.


#30

Blues are def loud, but can’t remember that my greens were that loud


#31

Blues and greens are very similar. Still using my blackwidow with greens and they’re rather loud.


#32

Since the we’re talking loud keyboards. Um @Mottamort what keyboard/keys do you use?


#33

I always see this hype about mechanical keyboards and then start looking at the available options. But then remember that I have a perfectly functioning gaming keyboard that’s still going strong after 9 years.


#34

Dunno if I should feel proud or ashamed of that one :stuck_out_tongue:

I have a Razer Blackwidow Chroma, with I think the razer green switches.

And they are perfect amount of loudness, thank you :smiley:


#35

Cherry MX Blues for me all the way. But that’s for mainly for typing, and gaming is still fine… And yes, they’re very loud.


#36

I’ve only ever typed on Browns and Reds and kind of want to know what Blues are like. I wonder if i can walk into one of those computer stores and ask the guy if he’ll let me type on one of their keyboards…


#37

Can you buy keys of different colours and replace the ones in your keyboard?


#38

Are you talking about the switches? Or literal key cap colours?


#39

You mean when you say the keys are brown they’re not really brown?


#40

Nope, They are MX Cherry Brown SWITCHES
