Best Mechanical Keyboard?

Price isn't too much of a concern, though the cheaper the better (id like to not pay a lot, but I will If I have to)

This is mostly with gaming in mind, Im looking for stuff with:

- Cherry MX Browns (heard blues are too noisy, I Skype a lot :/ not sure about this though cuz I like a little click and I think browns r silent)

- customization

- backlighting (colors are cool!)

- macros

- well built, nice keys

- easy cleaning

- usb ports and such

Not all this is necessary, just nice to have :)

 

Examples:

Corsair K70 RGB

Corsair K95 RGB (I see no difference between K70 and K95 except 18 g-keys, if there is any plz tell me)

Razer Blackwidow Chroma (doesn't seem so popular here)

 

Im a noob about mechanical keyboards, coming from a cheap membrane keyboard so all advice and recommendations are appreciated

 

Also Im sure there are many other options, these are just popular keyboards, there are probably other ones that are cheaper and I wud consider

I don't need all this fancy stuff, so options that aren't over 150 USD are more than welcome

 

thanks :)

I don't have a mechanical keyboard to call my own (yet), but I've been searching around for a while, and it seems that the concensus is that you can't really go too wrong with a Corsair K70/K95 (it really is just the 18 g-keys), a Logitech G710+, or a Ducky Shine 3.

 

I'm sure there will be many people to correct me if I'm wrong. Good luck with your search.

for macro keys the corsair k95 and since you want colors the new RGB, pretty much fills all the things you want, there are tons of other types of keyboards but not with all those features really

Browns are far from silent. They're not as loud as blues, but they're still considerably louder than a membrane keyboard.

Ducky makes great keyboards, but pricey. The Cooler Master Quickfire TK is a good keyboard with MX Brown switches for about $90
