I've had the same wireless keyboard for over 10 years. I've been seeing mechanical keyboards on Slickdeals and thought about updating, but I have a question, why don't these keyboards have number pads typically? I don't want to replace an old keyboard with a new one that is missing that.

I just got this for my birthday:
https://www.razerzone.com/c/Razer-Black ... 30100-R3M1

Along with the naga hex v2, and the firefly chroma :D

The keyboard is pretty loud in comparison to the one i had before (Razer Anansi). It has some razer switch that is comparable to MX Chery Blues.

Feels really good for gaming though!

MULTI-AWARD WINNING RAZER™ MECHANICAL SWITCHES
WOW!!

Since I am a peasant and use controllers for games I have never seen the point of getting a nice keyboard, but that thing is sick looking. #hip

I've been considering them too Tyler, but I'm in the same thought of why do I want it other than looks.

Do it. Here is one with or without the num pad. It lights up!

Edit: talked myself out of it after reading SD comments.

I've seen this one on SD 3 or 4 times. Comments are always what talks me out of it.

Currently looking for a decent gaming keyboard. Budget: $100-150.
Need something that will be good for typing long papers also. I am a college senior and going to be a grad student, so I gonna spend more time in Word than gaming I suppose :mrgreen:
Anyway. All suggestions will be much appreciated.
P.S. Corsair K70 (mechanical) seems like a great product.
(100% anti-ghosting and full key rollover on USB / 100% Cherry MX Speed gaming key switches with ultra-fast 1.2mm actuation and light 45g force)
Does anyone have experience of it?

Kyle, Wilkins, Salvo, and Crckrjack are your best bets, but I bet they aren't going to be very active until the 5th when they are back at work.

I don't understand the benefit of those keyboards. I have this set: http://www.microcenter.com/product/4562 ... (Red_Light)
What would I get by paying 4x more?
