I'm Looking for Keyboard Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone,


I'm in a desperate search for a good Keyboard, cause mine is starting to have keys that stop working from time to time.
Actually I have a Razer Lycosa. It's been my 6 or 5th year with it, best keyboard I ever had. I don't care about Mechanical keyboards, I'm a casual gamer. If it was not because some keys start to fail, I would keep that one. Reordering the same one is almost impossible cause hard to find at an affordable price if available somewhere.

 

I tried the Razer Hunstman (Mecha-Membrane), I unplugged it after 1h, the noise annoys me like hell! It's way too high with no wrist rest which make me press the Left CTRL, WIN and ALT Button all the time cause I'm used to having my hands rest on something and the keyboard is higher.

 

I have looked at all the big brands and nonce seams to have what I need. I'm not only looking for their actual lineups, It can be a keyboard from 5 years ago, I don't mind!

 

You can take the Lycosa as the best example of what I'm looking for.

Here's what I would like :


- Price : Maximum $150 CAD. - Can be Amazon Used since i can return it.
- Available on Amazon.ca (I'm prime), easier return if I don't like it.
- Low Profile Keys (but not chiclets like Red Dragon Karura)
- I hate, hate, hate, clicky keyboards, so Membrane is fine, can be mechanical but with Silent Switches (Red Switch I think, not sure).

- Wrist Rest would be nice

- Must be a rectangle Enter Button (once again - not like the Red Dragon Karura)

- No need for Macro Keys

- RGB (but if only one LED color, must be blue)

- Black or Dark Gray, not light colors

- Absolutely Needs one or more USB port on it.

- Audio Volume control would be appreciate.

- I Need the Number Pad

- Wired (braided preferred)

 

I hope you guys can help me...!

look into corsairs keyboards.  Most of them come with mx silent switches which would be perfect for you.  i have the strafe mk2 and i think that it meets all the requirements that you want, i would look at that personally

Yeah you're right. I already looked at a review of it but it was not the Strafe Edition or the K70 with red switches so I passed when I eared the sound and the key height. But yes, looks close to what i'm looking I keep that one on the list for sure.

Thank you for the suggestion!

Im a big fan of clicky mechanical keyboards  like cherry topre gateron kaihua.  but I also really like membrane. corsair k83 or the logitech g213 are pretty good if you really dont like mechanical keyboards  or want something quite. I know for those who want something quite even the cherry mx silents are too loud for them

5 to 6 years of heavy use on a membrane keyboard also sounds about right. if you really want longevity go mechanical they just last longer but if you want something quite go membrane. not as ecxpensive to get a good membrane keyboard as it is to get a good mechanical one.

That's why I'm mostly looking at membrane but I'm not close for mechanical if a good one is suggested.

Thanks for your suggestions though!

i fyoudidn't mid taking a cherry mx silent keboard or a mx red added dampeners and even lubed the switches then the possibilities are endless. check out cherry mx silent switches though to me they aren't silent but are nice and quite for the most part and you can even add o rings messes with key feel but definitely makes t quiter as it acts aas a dampener when you bottom out
