They don't feel much better than ABS does. 

 

You should be looking at keycap profile and thickness for differences in keycap feel. 

 

I would recommend the Novatouch first and getting a better keycap set when you can afford it.

Using a CM Storm Quickfire (forgot which model) with MX Blues but I have an Ergodox on the way, also with MX Blues.

I use a Corsair K70 RGB with Cherry MX Brown switches.

 

It is a nice hybrid for me, with good typing ability and a really comfortable key size and wrist rest. Additionally it can be 100% reprogrammed and offers many profiles you can make and tie to specific programs - so your keybinds and macros can change based on what you're doing. In addition to that its backlit and that backlight can be totally customized as well. It works well for productivity and gaming, which is what I need really.

I'm using the Realforce 87U All-45g "EK Edition".

Personally I feel that it's awesome for typing, but not for gaming.

For gaming I think I would still prefer MX switches.

It's small and portable so I'm able to bring it anywhere I go.

Currently sourcing for pink and blue keycaps for it. :D

 

I'm also using a Genovation ControlPad 683-U programmable keypad.

Programmed it from F13 to F24, Ctrl-F13 to Ctrl-F24, Alt-F13 to Alt-F24 and Shift-F13 to Shift-F24.

Then I use AutoHotKey to assign all my shortcuts. :D

 

Typing in QWERTY but I'm thinking of switching to programmer's DVORAK. :D

@Darthmullet Hey how do you like the Corsair. Well from reading your post I can see that you like it. I'm doing a pc build sometime soon and going with a clean aluminum look with the monitor, case, glass desk, and probably going with the k65 that has that brushed aluminum frame. It uses cherry red keys which I haven't tried out. It'll still be better than all my past keyboards. They say cherry blue keys are the best for typing. I really have no preference though. I like the fact that the k65 doesn't have a num pad. They take up too much space.

 

But thats what I will be using. I hope it matches well with the schiit gungnir I plan on getting.

I would advise staying away from their rgb line for now. Got a blue switch k70 last month and it was just a mess.

It was the older, non RGB boards that had issues... all the K70 and K95s were stopped being produced because the LED backlights failed.

 

The new RGB models don't seem bad to me. I have had zero issues with my K70 RGB Brown, aside from the (imo) dumb new logo. I need a numpad so I don't do ten-keyless myself.

Mine wasn't too bad switch wise, only like 3-4 keys of mine were mushy/brown like. Friend had like a third of his keys being mushy/brown like. Ended up returning mine after the lightning effects kept freezing up multiple times a day.

Well, I can't say that I've used a Blue RGB so I can't speak to that. All I can say is that I have had relatively few issues with the one I do have, and that I would buy it again. And I certainly wouldn't describe Brown as "mushy" but whatever you say.

 

@Puurple I have never used the Red keys, and generally they are viewed as more specialized and the least mechanical feeling of them all. They have no tacticle response. I use Brown as a sort of hybrid - the response time is as fast as the Red switch and the key stroke is registered well before the switch bottoms out, and it gives a response right when that happens - so you don't have to push the key farther than you have to. It makes for the fastest possible double tapping among other things. I enjoy typing on it still, not as much as on Blue - but I use my keyboard for many things, and the Brown I feel is more suited for competitive gaming.
