What is the best mechanical keyboard
I was tired of a regular membrane keyboard and I was looking for a good mechanical keyboard, and 3 caught my eye and I was wondering if the community could tell which of them they preferred between the Razer blackwidow 2013, the Logitech g710+, and the corsair k70. Any feedback would be appreciated

I've never personally used a razer keyboard, but I've heard the die after around a year or so of use. SO you might wan't to read a little on that. But I can recommend this series of keyboards:
I have the Quickfire rapid with the cherry mx blue switches. It's worked like a charm so far, and the build quality seems solid. and it's very affordable. It doesn't have bling though, no fancy lights or anything, and no numpad. SO you might wan't to consider that.
I've heard a lot of people like the Razer Blackwidow keyboards due to their MX Blue switches... but the newest Synapse 2.0 software I also heard is utter poop.
I've heard nothing of the Logitech one, but the Corsair K70 is well made, sturdy, and sexy as a mofo. The K70 is also getting the option of Blue or Brown switches soon, so it'll be even beastlier. Yes that's a word.
The CM Storm models are often cheaper, yet still well made mechanical keyboards. The Trigger and Rapidfire Pro I believe are the cooler looking ones.
Maxkeyboard.com has sexy, sturdy, well made keyboards with backlighting options. I'm biased with my Durandal G1NL (Browns <3).
Daskeyboard.com makes sleek, black keyboards with Blues, Browns, or Reds that are professional looking and durable. I've heard some people have used their Das keyboards as a weapon to bluntly impale another person and then proceeded to use the keyboard.
What you should do first is find out which switch you want and then go for a keyboard. Don't necessarily go for any specific brand name first. Here's a guide to mechanical keyboards to help you choose a switch: http://www.overclock.net/t/491752/mechanical-keyboard-guide

i am very very happy with my cm storm quickfire rapid.
it has cherry mx red swiches and these are excellent for gaming but you have to get used to them.
it is very compact so u can easaliy take it to a lan party or something.
the cord is sleeved and very nice.
u also have a gamemode and media keys. the keyboard comes with a keycap remover and some extra wasd and windows keys.
and the best thing is its only 50 dollar (where i bough it)
btw it doesnt have a number pad but who uses that anyway??
