    I'm interested in purchasing a backlit 10keyless but I'm still debating on which ones to look at. Keycool, or possibly the 10keyless CODE clear switch from wasdkeyboards.

    Yes it was directed at the image, and if that model offers other color choices I might pick one up. Used to most of their stuff just being black / blue and thats it.

    I have yet to play with it, but at CES it could be any color, and it does offer per-key illumination, so even if a bit of a pain you could set them all to whatever color. Pretty sure with their software, it would be as easy as clicking on the color to set the whole board one color somewhere;)

    Sounds like a winner then, but this is why sticking to one theme can bite a company in the ass. With almost everything they do being that one theme for so long. I stopped following their products. Good to see they are changing things up. Looking forward to the review on it Sneeky.

    I cannot argue that! But on that same note, I think the lighting has a lot to do with the hype of this solution. If things have changed since I last saw what they planned to offer, I will pipe up here, even if it is prior to the review.

    I've been waiting to purchase a mechanical keyboard for a while, and I went with your choice as well. I just ordered it, and excited for my first mechanical experience.

    May have to pick one up for myself as well. Been looking to get myself a mechanical replacement for my Isku, specifically with MX Browns. Not only does the Ryos have the Browns, but it's basically a more ergonomic Isku. Win freakin' win, baby!

    I like my dad's, but wouldn't own one myself. I like the extra programmable keys on "gaming" keyboards, especially the thumb buttons on my current Isku.

    I was debating between both the K70 and the ROCCAT. I love Corsair products, but chose the ROCCAT for the extra features.

    They less prone to key wobble ?.. Looks like they have more surface area when they are pressed than cherry's do..

    They still wobble a bit, but the idea, as Topre puts it, is to remove the part on part grinding that happens with say a Cherry Switch. So no drag, or that slight gritty feel you get when Cherry switches are pressed off center.

    Hi guys, forgot my login detail here, so I posted in other forums.....but, decided to come back here and wasdetermined to get my password right. Anyway, I have gotten some colored LED covers for my Ducky Shine 3 YOTS, was a little tired of all white LED, so I decided to jazz it up a little.
    [​IMG]

    The Miami key caps arrived, was short of the F12 key, so I installed the key caps on my Keycool 87........
    [​IMG]

    And my latest acquisition, a Ducky SHine 3 Yellow Edition with MX White, yep, you heard right....MX White. Proof's in the pudding, a shot of the switch...
