View Full Version : Getting a new keyboard

05-29-2011, 09:07 PM
So I plan on building my first gaming machine this year and wanted to start it off by buying the accessories. I currently have a g500 gaming mouse (which is really nice) and now im looking into getting a keyboard.

Im currently stuck between the g510 from Logitech and the BlackWidow Ultimate from Razer. Leaning more toward the BlackWidow because I like the LED lighting and how Razer does it for their hardware...also its a mechanical keyboard and I hear praises about those.

So what is the community of DoF's input into this decision?

And it works well =)

I have a Steelseries Merc Stealth its quite awesome (features 3 backlit colors (blue,red,purple) and well it needs some getting used to, the gaming pad is quite easy to get used to but the only down side is that the part where you have the : Delete , page up/down and all that stuff its binded on the numpad (you have to press a button to access the other keys) which i bounded to my mouse so its rly comfortable to use but just needs some getting used to overall the keyboard is a beast + is has that Gamer touch to it rather then just a keyboard with back lights

From my personal experience Razer BlackWidow Ultimate is best keyboard for gamers on world atm. Because of its freaking speed and reducing laggs.That keyboard have reaction time 10 times better then any keyboard you seen.

While pricy, mechanical keyboards are amazing and have great durability. Plastic cap keyboards just feel so cheap and hard to type on once you get used to the great response of a mechanical keyboard.

Steel series also makes some good mechanical keyboards.

I have quite a few IBM model Ms lying around as well that just pile up and never get used.

Mechanical is all hype if you ask me. Same with "gaming mice". But if you're a ricer (you said you like LEDs) then I spose you could go for it.

What I use and would hope to use forever. Call me crazy but I wouldn't rather have any other combination for RTS or FPS gaming.

Dell SK-8115 + Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0


I also have about 5 of these for my workshop, haven't had one fail yet.

While I agree that ridiculously expensive mice are not worth the money, especially in an RTS environment, I could never find myself typing on anything but a mechanical keyboard at this point.
