  1. "I never mentioned or compared any switches to others, only gave my opinion on Cherry MX's." which is why I asked you. If you're going to claim Cherry is better then its implied you think the others are not as good. does it not? "Razer switches? Do they make switches? Wasn't this post about a new Logitech keyboard?" My post was about your claim that "it's not MX" so you don't like the g910. Again impling Cherry MX is better. So I ask you again why is Cherry better? And yes Razer has contracted a company to make THEIR switches. "Are you a fanboy of any brand? I'm not." Doesn't sound like it. It sounds like you are indeed a Cherry MX fan since you dismiss all the others and accept Cherry as the best based on......on ......oh yeah other fan boys saying their the best. . " When you spend enough time reading reviews you get to some conclusions, therefore, they aren't facts, just opinions and things that happened to people that wanted to share. And I do that when I'm buying anything, from keyboards to cars." WOW ME TOO! and other than the occasional fanboy claim that Cherry MX is the best I have not seen one shred of evidense to back that up. Matter of fact I see lots of switches that have BETTER ratings so I'm asking people that claim MX are the best why. So far no one has given any answer with any facts, including you, you all just seem to be repeating what you've heard ....you know like a fan boyz. "If you want facts, I believe you came to the wrong place." Why, are you the only one here?. "Anyway, I'm not into internet arguments, I'm more into live action." Neat-o you sound like a super hero.. Cheers
  2. Thanks for saying nothing. Do you have some stats that say MX are sooo much better they never fail? Or some stats that say the Razer switches have a higher failure rate than MX? Do you have anything to back up that claim other than maybe I'll have a kb that fails out of warranty someday and I guess you think it won't be a Cherry switch? Facts man facts .....do you have any?
  3. What's so special about a switch that has a 20 million less click life?
  4. Here is a little follow up on the software: It looks like we need a customizable "Command mode" If you have a game profile it is supposed to switch to command mode (it doesn't work though) and display the active /inactive lighting. Sadly someone somewhere has already decided what keys should be active and limited the color. So command mode seem to me where we need to be able to select which keys should be active and what they should be colored. As it is now if you make a new profile you have zero control of the keys that are active and if its a game that logitech hasn't added to their list of known games it selects like 6 random keys to be active and you have no way to change even that much less the colors. :-( Correction: I have found out how to edit what keys are and are not active but its slow and painful. You basically have to add or remove "Commands" from the "Command list". You can only do it one key at a time and you still only have two colors. Another product with unfinished software. When will these companies realize that the software that is needed to enjoy a product is just as important as the hardware?
  5. Yeah I think everyone agrees its a must have feature. Can't say it looks all that bad sitting here in front of me I'm more concerned with how well it preforms and the software that makes it work being having what should be a basic feature for any RGB keyboard..
  6. I've heard a lot of people say those switches suck but never talked to anyone that actually used them. Thanks for the information.
  7. I'm coming from a Logitech K800 but I've tried the k70 red, k65 red, Razer chroma those green ones? I really think I like this one the best as it's pretty quite compared to all those others. If you like clicking switches forget this one. I will add It's looking like Logitech is being quite on the custom profile thing missing, it kind of reminds me of waiting for Corsair to answer back about their 512 colors only "problem". I've also realized you can't save a freestyle created lighting setup, so basically you have one set if you want another you have to make it, if you want your old one back you have to remake it. WTF? Not impressed with the software at this point but at least it doesn't crash. Will wait a week or two and hopefully hear back from Logitech before making final decision on this one. But if they give those two features, saves and saving to a profile, I'll be happy I think with it. Going to go try it out on some Titan Fall now :-) Thanks for the compliment! but my writing is too bad to put anywhere where more than 5 people will read it. :-)
  8. What are those keys rated at? If you've tried them have you ever had a Cherry switch fail?
  9. Well I got my g910 today and so far this is what I've found out about it. The keys are quite! No click at all, you can feel the actuation point but there is no click so it is a very quite mechanical keyboard.. (I kind of like that myself) It has some preset lighting modes, they are: Color cycle (Can control speed) Breathing (This mode shows to almost be like Corsairs in that the colors seem to step, if you run it slow, and isn't completely smooth in its transition, I wonder if they have the same issue Corsair has? Its not as bad but you can see the steps) Star (This mode is like reactive mode but you don't type it just changes a very keys at a time and they fade in and out I guess they think it twinkles.) Color wave (It’s a wave! :-) you can make it go left or right, up or down or from the center out) Key Press which is reactive mode (You can control the time it takes the key to change back) The keys are bigger than the k70 and Razer so I don’t miss type as much. When I say bigger they are like my k800 not a big difference but it does make a difference, which I like. OK the looks: Well it’s a black keyboard and to tell the truth I can’t even see the shape of it in low light so that’s a non issue for me, it looks fine on my desk. I’m using the smaller hand rest also which IMO looks better, but to each his own. You are not going to want to remove it as there is a frame and it looks like something is missing without it. Lighting: YOU CAN NOT MAKE A per key lit layout and connect it to a game profile! BAD BAD BAD Logitech! I have asked and I’m waiting for a reply from Logitech to see if this is in the works. As it is now you can only have one color (active color) but you can have separate per key COMMAND (which can be colored) linked to the G keys so right now those are the only keys you can have per key lighting, per Profile. ;-( (To sum up, the G keys can have separate colors but the rest are all one color.) There is also only one level of brightness. They mM1,m2,m3,m4 and multimedia keys cannot be changed and are membrane. Misc stuff: The dock is hmmmm really cheap and IMO stupid. It doesn’t clamp the phone or power it. Personally I’d just as soon place the phone on my desk and not the key board, Its use is questionable at best. Gimmicky The volume roller works well. One weird thing I found is there are three lights, one each, for the Cap Lock, Numlock, and Scroll lock but when you press one of those keys the light doesn’t always turn on or off, however it is working as you can see on the screen the cap lock is being turned on or off but the light doesn’t always reflect the change. It’s almost acts like the keys aren’t working but after playing around with it, it’s obvious the key is fine and it’s a firmware issue. Not really a big deal but it’s just something I noticed. The key caps are fine IMO you don't really notice that bevel they have. I think they toned them down before release and they are almost like a normal key cap, almost. Well that's all for now if you have any questions feel free to ask.
  10. I'm curious as to what products you had that had Kailh (sp) switches in it and what was the failure rate?
  11. Yeah so far the corsair offering looks like its the most configurable but its code is so hosed right now I had to return mine. Just got my shipping confirmation so I'll see whats up with this KB in a few days for sure.
  12. Here is a quick unboxing that gives you at least a good look at it without the lights on and then some with the lights. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOTO_8Vmt5A
  13. You're not raining on my parade I was just torn between a more "gaming" type board and and standard board. I liked the DS4 when it had knobs (yeah I'm weird but hate Fn keys) however even without the knobs i liked how they laid out the media and volume in relation to the Fn key (lots of makers place the Fn key on the right and the Volume up and down on the top far lift "F" keys making it a two handed operation. so if I'm going to get a boards with Fn keys I lied how ducky had them. I also liked the two LED option as it adds just a little more than two colors. Soooo I liked it for its looks and lay out, never had one before but heard good things. I have no idea what the G-romer switches on the 910 feel , yet.
  14. Yeah you would think that should have been very high on the list of MUST HAVE working for release list. I have a two week return window so I'm not waiting long to find out. :-)
