Which mechanical keyboard should I get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am current shppping for a mechanical keyboard. I have 6 choices.

 

- Corsair k70 rgb rapidfire (speed switches)

 

-Razer  Blackwidow chroma (razer yellow switch)

 

-Ducky One rgb (cherry mx red)

 

-Ducky Shine 6 (cherry mx red)

 

-Ducky year of the rooster edition (cherry mx red)

 

-Steelseries m750 (qx2 switches)

 

And what is the key switch lifespan on the ducky keyboards? They don't seem to specify it on their website.

What about Tesoro Spectrum? Sorry for making it even harder to choose, but this is even water resistant :-D

 

P.S. Get one with red cherry switches!

I don't like how tesoros look, sorry about that. But dont all keyboards have some sort of water resistance? I spilled soup on my random no name membrane keyboard and it still works, i also read some where that someone literally submerged their k70 to wash it and it still works.

I'm thinking of getting this also. Good reviews, and it's supposedly the K95 Platinum(a really good keyboard) just without the macro keys(something I don't mind not having.. especially if it saves me $70 bucks)

Personally I'd pick up a Ducky, great quality keyboard for the price. If you're looking for convenient customer support I'd recommend Corsair. I've never tried out Steelseries' QX2 switches so I can't say much about it, although I do own a Steelseries keyboard (6Gv2) and it's an extremely solid keyboard.

Ducky keyboards use Cherry MX switches, so rated at 50 million keystrokes.

Do you know if the restock any of the ducky year of the (animal) editions? Are they limited edition or something? Specifically the goat because that one likes quite nice, so is the rooster, but it is expensive.

They're limited edition keyboards. Every year they release a limited edition keyboard based on the Chinese zodiac of its respective year. Recently the year of the rooster edition came out, and I can imagine Ducky is already working on the year of the dog keyboard right now.
