Nah jk, for mmos a good ole Logitech would be pretty boss, as I don't even FPS that much any moar e.e

 

but when I did HO HO HO... I still sucked pretty bad... but not AS bad as I did b4 I got my Cherry mx Browns :D... although I'm still half decent in Fire Fall... So long as I'm healing! I can't hit enimies but I sure can READ mah Allies pretty easy <3

Yeah, switching to a mechanical did have a noticeable effect on my killing abilities. I could sprint, jump and reload all at the same time. That sounds silly, but man is it handy.

 

For that reason alone I'll never go back to non-mechanical.

And that is the idea, as that stuff is pretty useful!

It's not so much the fact that you can do those things, but that you can do them all at the same time. It means that if I'm backpedalling and moving to the right while trying to reload and melee a zombie in Left4Dead 2, I can, instead of it having to choose which three of those four actions it wants to do.

 

That's the difference between doing very well against the other team and crushing them beneath your boot.

I will use my Maplestory example. In MS, at some points against bosses, you'll have to move left, cast teleport, cast attack, heal health, heal mana in the same motion. That's impossible unless your keyboard supports 6KRO or more. I noticed this on my old keyboard and my first generation 2KRO BlackWidow. It's annoying when you die because you can't move and heal and the same time.

I have never experienced any key combinations I couldn't do with my Logitech G110 but I get what you are saying about the mechanical keyboards as I do love them but for me I couldn't pass up the deal and a noisy keyboard would have been impractical for me as I share a small dorm room with two other people and it would drive them insane if I was typing away on one into the wee hours of the morning.

Indeed, although I never played maple other than Private severs in which well... you where god you never died <3

I'm currently using an IBM Model M. Definitely love it for typing and general use, but the lack of N-key rollover makes it not great for gaming.

 

My roommate, though, has put together a custom micro controller type board that connects the keyboard to his PC and gives it N-key rollover capability. I haven't tried it out myself, but I think he could make good money off it as a side job for the keyboard geeks!

Seriously, that's pretty darn cool >.> that might be good buisness to. Definatley for people who travel often and like to game while they are away! I certianly don't want to take my Zowei out of my room and something like that would be neat!

Looks it says mechnical, any one know what switches are in there? Also it is Ps2 or USB, I forgot to mention but my Zowei is Ps2 so... well it's faster than USB keyboards by default. Still though that one looks nice! Still happy I got my Zowei, it's not the fanciest or the best but it's got some BANG for my mighty dollah!

Mx Blues I've heard are nice, and I know it's usb

 

Still though a nice board... kinda wishing I got it maybe xD My Zowei has Red Black lit Num Cap SCR in the top right... which doesn't match all the BLUE led's I own lol

 

but USB 3.0 is pretty fast [not faster than Ps2 <3] but still good board and Good price, plus I'm sure you can use that Board with a Razer Naaga mouse for a nice set up!
