New Keyboard For My Birthday

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So as the title explains, I need a new keyboard for my birthday. I have been using the same Razer Blackwidow X Chroma for about 2 years now and I have so many problems with it. The function key is broken off and so is one of the stands on the back. I really like the look and sound of cherry mx brown switched. I like the Logitech G710+ on the LTT channel but they have been discontinued. I was looking at the Corsair ones but have been holding off for a bit due to the prices. If anyone has any advice I would love some!

Thanks

Do you have a budget and a preferred form factor?

I think the hoomans put their builds here?

Why do you hoomans give your builds a name? Here's my build, which I shall call "Do as I Say, Not As I Do" (seriously, don't get this build)

Spoiler

Ryzen 1500X @3,925 GHz

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo + 2x ML120

MSI B350 Tomahawk Arctic

2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz CL15 (Micron B-die) @2933 MHz

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X @1120 MHz / 1450 MHz

120GB 850 Evo

120GB Kingston SSD

500GB WD Blue

Cooler Master Elite 430

Seasonic Prime Titanium 650W

Logitech G710 with Kailh Box Jade

Logitech G502

HyperX Cloud

And my laptop, which I shall call "If It's Stupid But It Works" (It can actually play CS:GO at 50 FPS, and Civ V at 25 FPS)

Spoiler

Lenovo Thinkpad L460

Intel Core i3 6100U

4GB (probably) DDR4 2133 MHz

Intel HD Graphics 520 0.3-1.0 GHz

128GB Samsung MZ7LF128HCHP

Corsair M65 Pro RGB (worst mouse I've ever had)

Sennheiser CX 5.00G

And here would be where I would put a picture of my cat. But apparently, images are not allowed here. So take this instead (*ΦωΦ*)

If you want MX Blues, You should get the HyperX Alloy FPS. I got mine around $75. Good keyboard if red LEDs suite you.

Since you like Cherry MX Browns and your budget is around 200, I would recommend the Corsair k95 Platinum. It's full-sized, great build quality, and comes equipped with macro keys and full, customizable RGB lighting. If you don't want to spend that close to your budget, go for the Ducky One 2 mini with cherry MX blue or whichever switch type you want. Many people got this keyboard just because tfue uses it and that is no reason to buy a keyboard. However, this keyboard is one of the top-rated mechanical keyboards in the market so I am not hesitant in recommending this to you. In fact, I myself am considering getting one of these. With the phenomenal build quality, rgb backlighting, and double-shot PBT keycaps, whats not to like?

Corsair K95 Platinum or K70 MK.2 are going to be the two options from Corsair with Cherry MX Brown Switches.  Feature wise, both are almost identical with aluminum chassis, hardware playback (onboard profile storage), per key lighting and remaps, and USB pass through.  K95 Platinum has more lighting zones for the top bar, dedicated G-Keys, and a soft touch/textured reversible wrist rest.  Let me know if you have any questions or are looking for any other specific features.

I will recommend the Leopold FC980M or FC900R for your needs. Those 2 keyboards are extremely well built, with 1.5mm doubleshot PBT keycaps, as well as dampening foam in the case and a nice, moderately thick PBT chassis.

Ducky has been a bit overhyped due to the tfue thing, but they are far superior to most other RGB keyboards, including the K95 RGB Platinum you recommended. The Ducky has overall better quality with its keycaps, build, and stabilizers being overall better. That being said, if you didn't need RGB, I would recommend either the FC980M or the FC900R as they are EXTREMELY good for the price and pretty amazing overall.

sorry i haven't looked at the thread in a couple day but in that time my uncle bought me a Red Dragon K556 RGB. If I had the ultimate choice and the budget I would've bought the K95 for the macros and the wrist rest but I am pretty happy with this keyboard. (I also never imagined that someone from Corsair would reply, if you want to send me a K95 I'll burn the red dragon :)))
