Jackson Black says:

I have a full sized e-element keyboard and absolutely love it. I have switched out the keycaps as after a while they got a bit greasy and didn’t feel fantastic, but keep in mind I played over 2,500 hours on csgo before I felt it was necessary to switch them out. The blue keys feel fantastic and I’m blow away for the price. I had a friend over who scoffed at the purchase as he loves his Corsair keyboard, but once he used my keyboard he was stuck scratching his head as to why he paid so much extra for the Corsair. I can’t say enough good things about the keyboard and would absolutely recommend it

All of these are better than what I’m using. Some PS/2 Hewlett Packard keyboard from the late 90’s. It actually has the Windows 98 sticker on the bottom. I have USB membrane keyboards, but all of them are either chicklets shitty OEM membranes

Hreniuc Iulian says:

If you can find this one, Serioux kbl003, trust me, you should buy it. It’s around 20$, metal backplate, mechanic. It’s a copy of a Razor I think; I’ve tried the original that it copies at a friend’s house, and it’s identical, except for the single color lighting (light blue – which would have been my choice anyway, as appose to the rainbow / bright colors on the original). Only problem is, I can’t find it anywhere for sale anymore, because after using it for 2.5 years, although it works perfectly, I would love another one to connect to my PS4 via a XIM4

why-me?? says:

buy cheap and buy twice, or thrice
