im looking at getting a new keyboard and i was looking at either the razor chroma stealth
or the corsair k70 rgb and was wondering apart from the back-lit keys are there so much better than say a keyboard for lesser money. (i do how ever like the fact that the stealth has supposed silent keys.)
went for the chroma stealth http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-keyb...chroma-stealth
as i think it looks a lot nicer and from people i know who use say its a better all rounder and is dead silent.
Also dosent have a god awful henna tattoo with gaming underneath it on the keyboard lol.
that looks cool! If you ever use it during live events, the backlight will really help in the dark venues. I use a old Memorex. I mostly like it because of the short-cut buttons that control the speaker volume, cut/copy/paste buttons, etc. it makes things go quicker.
I actually like the blues more than the other ones. They have a nice tactile clicky point right toward the top of the key. Perfect for typing a lot.
The stealth has silent keys because it uses cherry mx browns. I tried a logitech keyboard with them at a store once. Didn't really think it was that great to be honest. Kind of similar feel to a rubber dome at 4x the cost.
It also depends if you have money just lying around. It certainly feels nice, but I would argue only the noisier keyboards actually are better.
A shorter keyboard goes a long way with fps games though, because you get more accuracy when you play with lower sensitivity on a mouse that can track really fast. Not having a number pad in the way is great for that.
this isnt just going to be for gameing. This is my new all rounder keyboard so im useing it to type and produce music with as well. Also the main reason i got backlight keys is becaue (and this my sound strange ) i dont have a main light in my room (faulty electronics and its gonna cost more than the keyboard to get fixed.) and i thought this would be a better and alternative for the time being and in the long run for doing stuff at night.
The steelseries 6Gv2 is great! I would post a link but i cant since i dont have 30 posts yet
This bby won't ever let you down, while having backlit keys. I've had an older version of this keyboard for about 4-5 years now, flawless to this day. I've not even managed to wear out the color in the keys yet which is an achivement having in mind the amount of time i spend writing
I have a Corsair K70 and I would highly recommend it. I cant say if its better than Razor's alternative but I can certainly vouch for the fact that I have nothing to complain with what I have. It genuinely makes it a pleasure to type and game on.
+1 for the chroma. Wish I could have gotten the stealth version, i have the noisy one. But I really love it for gaming and for typing.plus the sound does remind me of the good old mechanical IBMs from way way back. Just spend some time with the color config, there are sime really nice effects, and tbey are app aware, so they keep up when you alt tab through programs.
