Hi,

 

Been doing research into keyboards I am looking at the two listed for FPS gaming I have tried browns in the past and they felt nicer than the reds I use to have. However no way in trying the razer keyboard out anyone tried both brown and razer greens that can tell me which they personally preffered I know it's personal preference but like I said I have no way in trying so rely on reviews from others.

 

Thanks

The K70 has a wrist rest so I'd go with that.

Have you looked at the GSKill KM780? I believe the brown switches version was on sale quite cheap from NCIX if you're able to order from them.

I did have a look at it unfortunetly they don't do an optical sensor mouse to go with it and I would like matching keyboard and mouse lol The mice I am considering is the M65 Pro or the Death Adder Chroma hence the two keyboards I am looking at the Keyboard choice will detemine mouse choice

So you'd rather get an inferior keyboard? Odd. Each to their own though, good luck!

Na I want a good keyboard but I don't like having different mice and keyboard software installed cause I had one that interfered in the past and the mouse software wouldn't run when the keyboard software was running weird glitch issue that I never managed to fix that was a logitech mouse however so...

Thats what I was looking for someone to answer if razer qaulity is still as bad as the day the Kraken headset came out. That broke on me after a week the cable had breaks in it so audio broke up. so is the Death Adder and overhyped mouse for fps gaming?

Just look at all the complains about razer keyboard quality on the internet...

It's pretty obvious it will only last you for a few years or less before having all kinds of issues.

I'll give it a look never had anything but G.Skill ram and I've only owned that 3 week so... Although it seems to run better than the corsair ram I use to have although still wondering if I made the right choice going with the V series G.Skills over Dominator plats but oh well xD

Wow my K55 lasted me 3 years and was still like new when I sold it to a friend xD I will avoid razer then I wasn't sure about the clicky noise their mechanical keys make anyway as I use a blue yeti for recording stuff and didn't want it to be picked up on the mic

Yeah, it's pretty solid. It also has a much better feeling volume wheel, lights to show the volume level (sorta useful, sometimes), and the build is on par if not slightly better than the Corsair K70 I had.

I will put it into consideration with the K70 Lux. My keyboard mouse options will probably be death adder and G.Skill keyboard or K70 Lux with M65 Pro :D although the G502 could be a good consideration to go with the gskill keyboard

What do you like about the G502?

If you like weightier mice, I'd take a look at the Thermaltake Level 10 M.

I was originally going to go for the G901 an G502 mouse and keyboard but the logitech made mechanical switches felt very unresponsive it's about the only keyboard my local computer shop has on display the mouse look nice and large and good for a palm grip but like with a lot of comapanies they lose points for putting glossy acents on it I (hate glossy plastic) Maybe i'm a bit picky, It looks decent when new but after a week or month glossy plastic looks worn imo

Yeah, I'm with you. I don't get the glossy aspect either. I just feel the G502 is too light. It feels slightly...cheap. The free scrolling middle wheel is nice, though. The buttons on the 10M also feel better (to me, at least).

Then there's the whole soft touch finish. Logitechs tends to wear off a lot quicker. Already noticing a little wear on my MX Master, and I don't even use it that much.

My current Laser Sensor M65 looks almost new and I got it back in 2012 I think it was but I don't like the laser so would like to get an optical mouse I like the look of the Roccat XTD Optical I think it's called but heard the paint wears on that one as well
