    Anyone who uses a number pad can use it blindly. xD Honestly I find that to be a fact and it is cheaper for the manufacturer and end user to reduce the # of LEDs on the board.

    So no adaptor and no secondary cable split to allow a USB hook-up for lights while using the PS/2 connection... I'm glad I just bought my Filco.


    And the green for using numpad, scrolllock, and caps lock? That's horrible! It's glaring against the blue. I never run without numpad enabled unless a program requires it off to use the pad (rarely, but it happens).
    I also like my black switches, but to anyone that says they are hard to press or give you fatigue, you really haven't used cheap keyboards before, have you. This thing gets random keypresses all the time when I just lightly press or bump it a bit too much. It's great response and feel, just odd people say they're hard to use.

    Nobody who has used a mech would argue with your latter point. Only people posting in speculation with second hand info would say blacks are a bad switch compared to membrane cheapos. BTW filco are amazing. I've owned a DAS, filco, Cherry, and a few other and while I like my Das the most Filco is a close second.

    I've tried the ABS M1 and a SteelSeries 6Gv2, both with black switches, and I honestly hated both. They weren't bad per say, but they weren't much of an improvement over membrane keyboards. I do love blues and browns though, especially blues.

    Blues are my favorite for typing, but I can't deny browns, reds, and blacks are amazing for gaming. Blacks are my least favorite as well, but one can not deny blacks will NOT mess up your typing by dulling in accuracy. You press that key the stroke is registered. I will say the lack of NKRO on both of those keyboards does make them a bit less reliable for picking up keystrokes. That would frustrate me to no end.

    That's a Cherry Red switch designation, not an LED color indicator.

    The 9000 series is NOT illuminated...

    Cherry Reds are preferred by many gamers - my Corsair K60 Vengeance Keyboard has 'em.

    Majestouch-2 Ninja with black keys here. Love it.



    They probably still have NKRO, but require an adaptor and lose the ability of the LED lighting (which is why I mentioned the second input strictly for lights).
