Are there any particular features that you want on the keyboard? Media keys, volume wheel, any specific switches? Budget?

 

The main feature is comfort. I'm a software engineer and spend a lot of time typing, and at least at home would like to invest on something better than a cheap keyboard. I game mostly on the controller, with exception for RTS and some shooters, while my girlfriend will enjoy most of the gaming usage of it. I have no particular need for special keys, although my girlfriend would benefit of some macros. I kinda wish their lighting was Aura compatible but it isn't a deal breaker.

 

About switch types, I'm afraid I have no clue. The last mechanical keyboard I owned was probably 20 years ago and was already an old keyboard, and there was no colour coded switches I think, so I really have no experience in typing for long periods on none.

 

Budget, well, I really have no budget. I've been delaying any purchase for a while now, considered these ones for the price cut that seemed like a nice deal if they were good. If there are better ones on a close price range, I could consider.

I believe Asus keyboards (like this one) are the only ones that are Aura compatible.

 

If you want something simple, check this one out. Cooler Master has some of the better built OEM keyboards especially the Masterkeys Pro line. You can also check out this keyboard by Cooler Master if you want RGB. The Corsair K95 is hard to beat if you want macros but it is a bit pricier. 

 

There are better ones out there like the offerings of Leopold, Das Keyboard, Filco, Ducky, but I'm not familiar with the EU market to know where to look for those brands.

Alright, thank you very much.

Between those two, I would get the Taihao set. Note that it is currently the Chinese holiday so expect to wait a while to receive it.

 

Where are you located? Budget? Anything particular that you are looking for, like color, or profile?

Between those the Taihao look much nicer. Though I'm personally not a fan of backlit keys, so I couldn't recommend anything else in that area.

My top 2 would be XDA Canvas and Mt3 dev/ty But those are currently not live. You can get them second hand on r/mechmarket if you look long enough. 

 

For more accessible options you could look at MP Retro Beige, SA 9009 or Carbon

Not that I know of other than the XDA Canvas I posted before. I think those are a lot less common.

XDA Milestone as well, also, many gmk caps are left aligned.

I haven't posted on here since 2017, or on the forums at all actually. I thought I might as well pop back in to show off my latest board. It's a Niu Mini ortholinear 40% keyboard, using Cherry MX Silent Red switches, lubed and spring swapped to Gateron Yellow springs so that they have a bit more force.

Did not think that SA would be that much bigger than OEM, aha.

Go on amazon and do that. Not many options, maybe reddragon Vara or Gigabyte Force K83 would be best for that price.
