I choose the red one!

or you could read reviews and try them in a store to see which one has the best feel for you


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Easily the Huntsman TE. Unlike the others, it's not garbage. Actually decent switches, actually decent keycaps, and passable stabilisers.

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*)

None, go try 65% keyboards instead. You can thank me later

lol you serious? I hate 65% keyboards. Useless to me. It's acceptable as a portable keyboard for on the go, but I can't use that on my Desktop Setup. I Need TKL or Full size

I like the build quality aswell, especially the keycaps, but it's so loud..

There are two versions. One with clicky switches, and one with linear switches. Though due to the design, it doesn't look like silencing clips will fit.

Go for this one https://drop.com/buy/drop-ctrl-mechanical-keyboard

there's also a version for Europe https://drop.com/buy/drop-ctrl-mechanical-keyboard

 

Look up some reviews, the CTRL is outstanding

OP is looking at keyboards that cost about €130, therefore you suggest them a €210 keyboard. Good job. Why not go all the way and suggest them a RAMA?

The ctrl costs 200$ free US shipping included. 200$ is 179 euros and 20 cents, + shipping to europe. Not sure from where you're getting these prices but they aren't accurate.

Nope, QMX clips won't fit.

That was a limited time promotion for the EU collection. Iirc, it started after I posted that, and it has now ended.

Just an example of a keyboard way outside of OP's budget, and it was the first thing that came to mind :P

shipping from europe, shipping included. 180$ = 161€

 

unfortunately out of stock now though, so if you really want this keyboard you would have to pay extra to ship it from US I guess. So your price calculations are correct for now, But if you are from europe, I would just wait or buy another keyboard.

 

My original suggestion for this keyboard was from 18. Dec., it was stil available back then.

How do you come up with that number? When I click the link it just says out of stock, price is not listed. Not being a dick, just interested.

As I said, early mid december it was still in stock. I also did order the keyboard back then. I could attach a screenshot of the order, but I am at work right now.
