I'm looking for a wireless keyboard with high key roll-over and Cherry MX Brown switch. Anyone have any recommendations?

Wireless/Gaming is kinda like oil/water.

I dunno if it has the cherry tho , Sorry.

Best of Luck

Which is annoying, I like to sit my keyboard on my lap, and put it wherever I want without wires. But my current keyboard has a shitty roll-over.

My version of wireless has just been to get a 10' USB cable extension. Many a words have been said and keys broken when I go to move and the batteries decide to quit or the signal gets shaky.

The KBtalKing Pro is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for, but for $170 + international shipping (they charge $10 just for American shipping) so probably just shy of $200 is way too much, I could get a superior in every way wired keyboard for half that.
Edit: Well maybe not with the linked to 10 different devices thing, but that's not an appealing feature for most people.

Any reason why you might be mashing more than 6 keys at any given time? I might be able to do 4-5 at a time if I am typing a message out, alt tabbing, and engaging at the enemy all at the exact same moment in time.

I just need higher than the 2 roll over my current keyboard has. If I want to press Shift+W+D my keyboard doesn't register the D. I never said I wanted higher than 6.

I've never had anything like that happen to me, my wireless has been incredibly reliable. If the batteries are going I just replace them but they last for months.

That's what I thought...until I started pairing my devices around my computer. All I gotta say is...once you try Bluetooth multi-pairing, you don't go back! :laugh:

6 is standard for USB keyboards. If you can only press 2 keys, you need to replace it if only for the fact that it has serious problems of its own.
