Which keyboard does Linus use for bench marking in his office. I have been looking for a keyboard quiet as that. Also if you have any recommendations on other keyboards lemme know. Danke Schon

Have you got a picture perhaps? I know on his desk he uses a G710 keyboard (probably with Browns, as that is his favorite switch type as he mentioned in the past).

Looks like an old razer blackwidow ultimate because it's all blue, which means it's likely the one they released around 2012-2013.

If you want one, don't. (unless you can get an actual legit one from years ago).

 

Back then they used MX blues and were solid AF (i still use my blackwidow but not the ultimate one so I only have the logo lit up).

These days they are crappy and use cheap-ass switches that are nowhere near as good as MX switches.


If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

Their Huntsman series keyboards use Bloody/A4Tech LK switches. Among the best modern linear switches. Cherry MX switches are mediocre at best, so not sure why switching away from them would automatically be a bad thing.

Because razers QC is quite bad. And I have tried their razer green switches, the clicky ones, and they were awful.

I have a cheap chinese keyboard with fake mx blues and honestly I couldn't feel the difference, but I could feel the difference compared to the razer switches and they were absolutely awful.

 

Also the blackwidow came with iirc only mx blues so if you want one of them, mx blues it is.
