Yep

I can believe this as being true in the world of Multiplayer but, does it also hold water in the Solo Campaigns?
Yep. For me at any rate. I only play single player.

The 'mech/mechanical' part is the keyswtich. It's not feasible to put a mech switch in mice. yet...


The days of aesthetic mice are largely over, but luckily ergonomics are not. My Thermaltake Theron looks ugly and awkward, but is actually the most comfortable mouse I have ever used. There is a mouse for everyy hand. Finding the right one is the tricky part. One size and recommendation does not suit all.

And don't get me wrong folks, I'm not saying 'you're doin' it wrong' because you use membrane boards. I'm a strong advocate of it does the job, no need to replace. (Advice for others, not necessarily myself )

Some membrane keyboards are lucky that the rollover is not near WASD cluster and thus does not impact gaming etc.

However others (like I've had) have been deal breakers. It's down to the PCB (printed circuit board). I'd suggest a new mouse over a cheap, yet comfortable and working keyboard. Again though, if you are content with what you've got - enjoy it.

But - when you've upgraded everything else and are looking for a new avenue of improvement; have a look at mech boards

Tbh, when it comes to peripherals, ignorance is bliss.

I personally notice the differences most people don't. FPS latency, FPS over 30/60, micro-stutter, input polling rates, failed key registers, wireless lag etc

I can easily notice the difference between a polling rate of 125 vs 500. 1000 not so much. I can also notice the almost imperceptible lag a wireless mouse has over wired. Same goes for n key rollover. But if you're lucky enough not too notice, then I envy you.

I've spent far too much finding what suits me. But at least my findings can hopefully help others.

"I spend money so you don't have to"
Didn't you just hate that ,I mean you would have to open it up work off the rubber that built residue on the plastic side rollers Pain in the Arse
So glad that they came out with Laser mouses so much better only time I open up my mouse now is to change the Batteries

Hi, I'm new to this forum. I recently purchased a Roccat ISKU, Roccat Kone XTD and a set of Roccat Kave 5.1 headset. All are performing far better that I expected. The new model Isku has been released with one of the main differences is to be able to change the key back light colour.

My current is a Logitech K310, it's washable, seriously..... Let dry overnight, done.

Cost if you can find it, around $40.

I have a Logitech G11 gaming keyboard, but haven't needed it since I quit playing MMOs.
