Need a new keyboard

Hello, I am in need of a new keyboard the current Corsair K90 I got is going to be sent back due to errors and don't feel like getting a new one. So I was hoping I could get some recomendations for keyboards.

I would like the keyboard to be mechanical & have media controls.

None the less I just want as much info about various keyboards that you people use

Andreas W,
I own two of these in usb wired and wireless and highly recommend them. The illuminated keys and the low pro silent typing action is fantastic. Also just bought a solar powered non illuminated version.

Looked that keyboard up and apparently its not doing a good job during games because it cant handle multiple key presses. Kinda a shame because it was a good looking keyboard with the illuminated keys.

That one actually had a lot of things that I liked, I could do without the panel but this calls for some youtube videos about this "bad boy" ^^

Hello, sir.

I am currently using, Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110 and it isn't so bad for me since it has media keys which is my number 1 buying point and it has those 'profiles key'. Just thought that you may want to take a look.

So far these 2 keyboards look good

Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110
Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510

I don't play MW so would feel kinda weird having a keyboard made for that game ^^. I need to see if there is any shops that have these, would be nice to be able to touch them and see how they feel. Only difference between those 2 are pretty much the lcd screen and more macros on the G510 so there is not a huge difference between them other then the price about 200 SEK.

Forget the Logitechs - they're nasty.


Seriously, stick with a mechanical keyboard.

It's not often I'm a component 'snob' - but mech boards truly are superior - except for 'dedicated' media function keys - but there are several decks that have FN +Media keys, and for those that don't - there is always Autohotkey - a configurable script based app that can turn keys into media keys.

(no offence to Logitech owners, but... mech keyboards are simply much, much better. Especially for the price. I have had the expensive 'gaming keyboards' and compared to mech keyboards, they lose big time - all the time. Any 'inconvenience' is completely outweighed by build quality and the NKRO of proper mech boards. Hybrid boards like the Corsair are getting there, but still aren't 'that' great.



Since you're from Sweden, I don't know what online stores you have/use. If you post a link to one or two to these stores, I can have a look at what else beside the K90 is available that suits your needs.

In the meantime, some brands to consider:

► Filco
► Topre
► Leopold
► DAS
► Ducky
► Razer (Not really recommended. Poor Quality)

Without knowing your availability, it's hard to suggest any particular model.

I have the G510 qnd love it. It can record macros and has multimedia functions (which I don't use) If this one broke today, I would buy another. If I am not mistaken, they made a Call of Duty version, but I have the regular version. If you watch the video in the link, there is Windows 7 software available for it. That is an older video.
