As a casual gamer I do like my self a nice keyboard.

After renovation of the bathroom my trusty Corsair k70 rgb had a bit to much dust for dinner. Now some keys are not working.

To replace the faulty unit I have bought a Logitech G915 lightspeed keyboard.

I don't game but I'm a programmer so I have a lot of hardware and a lot of keyboards. My favorites are IBM Model Ms but they're hard to find now and also make a lot of noise and can be a bit slow, but they're very accurate. I have a couple of Filcos with Cherry Browns but the key caps suck for the price. I have a half dozen or more Hyper X Alloy FPS, some with Cherry Browns and some with Blues. They're a good daily driver keyboard. All metal base, no gimmicks, solid as hell. Mine take a serious pounding. I think they would not be very good for gaming since these have only red lighting. It is good for typing in the dark but not much else.

I jumped into mechanical keyboards a couple years ago, and felt like the market of "gamer" keyboards were just too expensive for what you were getting. I also didn't really like the shining that ends up happening on the keycaps. I ended up getting a Ducky keyboard from mechanicalkeyboards.com. It was only $100, and it's heavy and built like a truck. The keycaps are supposedly a more rugged plastic that should resist the inevitable shining with a lot of use. I've been so pleased with the purchase that I now consider myself a Ducky shill.

The other thing I really liked about it is that there are four standard keys above the numpad that are for media functions. Really useful!

I've been running a Filco with Cherry Browns for the past decade. It sure beats my run of the mill Dell I have at work.

Since you already have a replacement, you may want to consider taking apart your k70. Had soda spilled in a k70, took it apart and soaked the k70 circuit board for a few days in water. All is working well again. 3 keys were displaying weird behavior but there was power and other keys worked. The water seems to have diluted the soda sugar away.

I recently bought a Ducky too (Mecha Mini with Brown switches). There have been some firmware issues with the new model though which are affecting my board (preventing moving of the function key to a different location).
