I wonder who frosts his hair. And where he gets his earrings?

Other than that, it looks like a really nice and solid keyboard. All backlit keyboards I have ever purchased have been utter crap.

Hey, if she's attracted to that, then more power to her. Bwahahaha.

I'm not too fond of "gamer" gear. It's just waaaay too overpriced. Seriously. I nearly had a heart attack when my sister's boyfriend spent over $400 on a freakin' Nostromo, keyboard and mouse. That's just money he shouldn't be spending on himself when they have a 3 year-old daughter. I almost had to beat some sense into the dense mofo. I had to explain why I would personally use that money and use it to have a day of lifelong fond memories with my daughter and family, rather than be selfish and spend it on myself for something that I'll probably replace in a few years. Add to that his unemployment status, and it just doesn't make any freakin sense at all.

I guess it's all priorities. But it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Yes, he's that stupid.

If you have money to spend $200 on a keyboard, then more power to ya. I'm not going to judge you at all. No one should. I just think that there's better stuff to spend my money on. My $12 MS keyboard is fine for what I do. And for the record, it outperforms some more expensive keyboards than I've bought in the past. I started a new job last week and it's not about the funds. It's about priorities for me at least.




I hate this lady, but this pretty much sums up how I feel about it.

I got an MS X4 illuminated keyboard for $35. It might have slightly cramped keys and not be as solid as these high end ones, but it has all the features I want, a nice look without being too over the top (it's borderline, but not that bad) and seems solid enough for me.

I did spend $90 on my Logitech M950 mouse though, but it's pretty damn amazing and much more cost effective than those $150 razer ones at least. I'm not a big fan of gaming targeted overpriced crap either, especially when it looks like a 11 year old designed it.

Last illuminated keyboard I got was so bad, the "laser etched" keys that were touted as not being able to wear out wore out on me within a month. My WSAD were so bright that I just tossed it in the bin. Never again. I don't care how they advertise the crap, but I'm just very skeptical about it now.

As long as a keyboard has no little ghosting, I'm completely fine with it.

You can test it out here.

It will show you how many registered simultaneous keys you can press at the same time. Granted, with regular typing, you will most likely NOT press that many keys. That's why the whole USB 2.0 is farce. It's just a selling point. If I'm wrong, then I'm wrong. But I haven't heard anyone else claim otherwise.
