I really like the feel of Razer Greens, but $140 for the Blackwidow Chroma V2 is not something I'm willing to spend. Is this the keyboard for me? Can I customize the RGB and put effects on it, and is there software for this keyboard? Are there volume keys for muting, raising, and lowering sound?

If not, here is what I am looking for: 1. Mechanical switches similar to Razer Greens but not as loud if possible. 2. Customizable RGB with software, ideally with effects such as lighting up when you press a key or pulsing to music, maybe even multiple at once. 3. Comfortable wrist rest, looking for something similar to or more comfortable than the Corsair K55. 4. Volume Mute, Up, and Down keys. 5. Durable 6. Under 70USD if possible.

Bump. Also, I never use my number pad, so I do not need one.

This looks like a decent option: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/vknG3C/redragon-k551-rgb-vara-wired-standard-keyboard-k551-rgb-vara

Greetech switches don't exactly have the best reviews.

MannyPCs 1 point 4 months ago

That option looks good too.

Buy used.

Who knows who could have used the keyboard and what messes they could have made...

True, but it would let you get what you want. Buy from someone with lots of feedback and lysol each key when you get it.

Either way, GL!

If I like Cherry MX Blue/Razer Green, will I like MX Brown?

ImperiousBattlestar 1 point 4 months ago

MX Browns are in between Reds and Blue (tactile and clicky, but not as loud)

hypergalaxy8 submitter 1 Build 1 point 4 months ago

Is there a keyboard that meets my requirements with MX Brown? Can go up to $100

ImperiousBattlestar 1 point 4 months ago

I've had a look, and nothing that I could see around the $100 mark was suitable (looked at the Corsair Strafe for $109, but it didn't have dedicated media keys). I'd go for this, but is a $30 hike justified?

If I like MX Blues, will I like Romer G switches? Is typing good on Romer G keys? https://pcpartpicker.com/product/gqmxFT/logitech-keyboard-g810
