What keyboard should I get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

It was my birthday today and I got some money which I will use to upgrade my keyboard, I'm looking for a keyboard with RGB if possible and Cherry blue switches. If not RGB I want at least backlighting. My budget is $150, someone give me options. Thanks :D

Okay, does it come with a software for the lighting?

For this version? Unfortunately not, and I can't say much because I bought the cheaper Backlight one and I am using Linux.

If you do a lot of typing, I recommend Steelseries Apex M500, but this one only has blue backlighting. If you want R!B, I suggest you look into CoolerMaster Masterkeys. There are three sizes and white or RGB LEDs, so you can pick the right one :)

I hate to be a brand whore but I cant fault my Razer Blackwidow Chroma, brilliant keyboard, just loud on the typing noise.

Corsair K70 comes with Cherry MX Blues...so does the Coolermaster Masterkeys Pro S/M/L as Krik has mentioned.  Depends what you're looking for in a keyboard other than blue switches and RGB...what do you like in a keyboard?

I'm not looking for one with a numpad because of its pointless for me, I'm really interested in the Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro S RGB keyboard.  I'm just deciding if I I should get cherry brown or cherry blue.

I like my Cooler master Masterkeys Pro S RGB. There is also a medium or large version.

 

You can control the RGB via software or via the keyboard itself.

Well for me I had the razer v2 the newest one for about 2 weeks, didn't like it I even had the new mouse to go with it, the keyboard felt cheap to me and I just couldn't get over that seeing how much it cost, I then moved over to corsair and have the rbg k95 and the build quality on it is amazing vs the razer, there is a lot of good 150 doller keyboards like some of the ones mentioned above it comes down to which one u like, rgb and cherrys may be a little more but that's the price u pay for machinal keyboards
