Lol, you make me feel like I'm back on 4Chan.
I'll take a pic and post it tonight. It's one of the many that Sneeky has posted in this thread.

Ok, ok, so it didn't happen last night, as we had a power-outage for a while, so I ended up going to bed.
Anyway, here are the pics as promised. MX Browns, by the way.

The keyboard isn't that sexy, but i LOVE the green switches.




I am a huge fan of green switches too, it's just too bad they are so rare!
Tell me about it. My options were very limited. Wish my keyboard at home had green switches. The blues just don't feel right anymore.

I assumed it was. Reminds me of a CM board, but none of the things that make them an obvious CM board like logos on the ALT keys.

Yeh and the font on the keys matches the font on the keys on my kb. Very nice!

I have to admit my CM kb has really impressed me ( I have a storm trigger). Especially compared to my old Tt one.

Anyone using blue switches here?

I got my RMA back from Corsair and they gave me a K70 with blue switches. Im not sure if i love it or hate it tbh. Probably hate because this keyboard is NOISY. Get and get down with the clickiness......

I like blues better than, say, reds, but that's because I like tactile feedback. Personally, after having typed with an IBM KB older than me with ALPS switches that are noisy as hell(every keystroke is a Ka-chung sound) for years, I'm used to the audible feedback and it doesn't bother me anymore, but it's definitely understandable that some people don't like the audible feedback, especially when they're not even the one using the keyboard :roll:
Bottom line, it's just personal preference. If you like the feel and the audible feedback doesn't bother you, I think you'll end up loving the KB.

BTW, was that last line a Disturbed reference?

Thats why i decided to give the keyboard a go rather than not touching it and selling it instantly. I think i do prefer MX Browns as a whole but these dead LEDs seem to be a widespread issue and not just tied down to one keyboard manufacturer. Maybe Cherry used bad LEDs paired with their switches, because at this point I can hardly call my Ducky shine 3 with 4 dead LEDs a coincidence.

I may just have to go back to using MX Reds i think.

and yes that was a disturbed reference :)

Yeah, my dad's K70 w/ reds has quite a few dead LEDs. None on my Ryos MK Pro, hopefully it stays that way.
Also, I don't think you can blame Cherry for the LED issues. They simply make the switches with a space for a 3mm LED, but I don't think they actually ship the switches to manufacturers with the LEDs already in place. I could be wrong, though. Maybe somebody with a bit more knowledge could chime in here?

the Ryos MK Pro is available here but that seems quite a big keyboard and i dont need all the fancy macro stuff. thats why the K70 was so appealing to me. I dont know what im gonna do now. I might give the Gigabyte Osmium a go a hope for the best depending if i can get another Ducky Shine III because it seems they are rare'ish here in the UK. probably only a handful of retailers sell them

I really starting to favor them honestly. I rarely use the number pad section of a keyboard, and its just so handy to have a more compact keyboard for the desk, and my lap since I do most of my typing with my feet on the desk.

Sucks availability is so low in general on TKL boards. I also noticed it does take a while for Rosewill to offer stock to other retailers since it is Newegg's in house brand. I do know Thermaltake has the Poseidon TKL about to release in the wild, maybe that will be more widely available, and it uses Kailh blue switches too if that is your thing. Also Tt carries a 5 year warranty, where the Rosewill's is only a year!

Benchmark Scores Not slow
Reading through this thread, I don't like the sounds of Corsair's support on keyboards. I picked up a K95 a while back and quickly noticed that the letter on the "H" keycap was crooked. I was hoping to get them to mail me a replacement, but I'm worried about my chances now.

It doesn't help that I HATE the red switches it came with too. They're supposed to be "gaming" switches, but I don't know how accidentally jumping because I put too much pressure on the space bar improves my ability to "pwn noobs", as it were.
(..or not being sure if I pressed a key enough for action X to be performed.)
(...or accidentally strafing.)

*character unexpectedly jumps in-game*
Me, frantically looking around, swinging melee: "AAAH!"
Nothing near me, nothing happened.
MX Reds strike again.

Corsairs were cool as they were one of the first to bring mechs mainstream. Thing is my first sample had a bad LED from the jump, the second did the same thing over a bit of time. The other thing is, build quality is much better from everyone else really, Corsair mechs are sort of cheap-ish in the frame, and IIRC they always allowed way too much torsional flex, which could be why LEDs are going out.

There is always the chance of a bad LED out of the hundred or so they install. Everyone I know that has owned a ducky loves it and has not one bad word to say about them. I think it was just luck of the draw, or lack of luck as it may be.

This looks sexy as hell. Pitty you cant get here in the UK yet but theres a lotta choice in the TKL range... Just that most of them seem to be sold out at the moment
Although it's a great keyboard for those who want to or need to program any key on the keyboard.

Great for those games were the key setting are just not at your liking.
