Need help picking a new keyboard

My razer keyboard is acting up. 

 

It seems to keep pasting the V and C keys even in Linux. 

 

It starts to happen after 30 mins. 

 

I'm sick of it and just want a new keyboard. 

 

I have a good budget of £200. 

 

What do you guys reccomend?

Is there a switch type you like for mechanical keyboards? Or do you even care if its mechanical or not?

First, try to send it to Razer for a replacement. Even if it's out of warranty, they may still give you a discount.

It's about 3 year old and I just don't trust the brand anymore. 

 

I've only tried their green keys which are equivalent to cherry browns I think. 

 

I might get the k95 platinum

Corsair makes good stuff so they're a good choice. I'm a person that would build their own keyboard but a lot of people don't want to take the time to do that. Corsair is probably your best choice unless you're considering Logitech.

I've been eyeing Corsair for a while. 

 

I'm not sure on which model though. The K95 platinum I can get for £150 which is well within my budget. 

 

I just want to know what else there is

Theres a company that makes more typing based keyboards but are amazing quality, Leopold. I can't really think of anything off of the top of my head for gaming that isn't corsair, logitech, or razer.

Corsair does seem to be more reliable then Razer from what I've read. 

 

A USB pass through would be a huge plus That's why the platinum seems good. 

 

With Leopold I would have to get it imported and the keys won't be the UK standard I believe. 

 

Otherwise that would seem ideal.

mechanicalkeyboards.com have the ANSI UK layout for Leopold, I believe, but the corsair sounds like its a better keyboard in pretty much every area for you, so go ahead and get that one.
