Then get the Blues!!!!!!!!!

It's not just that, it's nitpicks with the keyboard in general. Playing around with the LEDs is cool and all, but in all honesty, these "Blue" LEDs are more of a purple, they really clash with with the blue on my case, which I believe has a bit more green in it?

Also, the shift/delete keys feel mushy. Not sure if that's maybe a defect with this board, or just mechanical keyboards in general with the browns?
Also, the LED backlighting is inconsistent across the key. I know this is due to the fact that it has to fit a switch in there as well, but it still bothers me. And also, who's brilliant idea was it to put the characters you get when you press "shift" (!@#$%^&*()_+ along the top bar) BELOW the numbers???

Ergo MX Clears(MX Clear with MX Blue springs) are the best.

The characters annoyed me too, you get used to it (It's for the backlighting)... Blues have no mushy keys, even shift and stuff. There's a reason I got my keyboard with white LEDs... wink.gif

I believe Ducky uses the cherry stabilisers, while boards like Filcos uses costar stabilisers that is supposed to feel better

Hmm, I guess that would make sense. I still prefer ducky though because you have the option of LED backlights.

Try some Topre keyboards?

Y'know, I'm thinking the same thing. I really think I would like a Topre keyboard, but they just cost too much. I hear they're a little cheaper in Asia, so I hope to get one when I go to China, but for now, I have to stick with boring old Blues, even though they're old but gold.

The topres are worth every penny.  You MUST try one out! 

 

 

Also, I asked elitekeyboards if theyd mind offering a uniform-weighted "silent" topre (the realforces are already stupidly quiet, but anything to help my wife sleep better while I type at night, the better) - they said there were no plans to do so, but if there was sufficient demand, they might consider doing a run.  If anyone is interested, shoot them an email and let them know!  I could care less if it was an 87 or 104 key, 55g or 45g...

First post here: I just grabbed a Das Model S Ultimate with Cherry MX Blues off Amazon... my current throwwaway membrane keyboard as begun to actually hurt my fingers, and I decided it was time to make a big investment. I've recently read quite a bit on keyboards, and I have to say that I become just as invigorated as when I started to look on head-fi about headphones. I can't wait!
