Hello people

I've been looking for a mechanical keyboard lately, and i gotta say that its really hard to decide which of them I should choose. so I came here to gather some opinions.
This keyboard will be used mostly for Gaming, and typing of course.

If you have any recommendations, (f.e. trustful and reliable brands) then please share them with me.

And if its possible, suggest them from a greek website.

Total budget: around 140€

Ducky. It's a Taiwanese brand and not easy to find in US but excellent quality.

Cm storm and QPAD are relatively cheap and I can vouch for CM storm and I know people with QPADs who use them without fault.

Keyswitch colour is largely a personal thing, which one to go for will depend on what your needs are. This is a pretty good guide on the keyswitches and mechanical keyboards in general.

I personally use Brown switches as I wanted the feel of a Blue without the noise.

I too use Brown switches. It makes noise but it's not Blue noisy. I feel Brown is the perfect mix for me. Excellent for gaming and typing.

What helped me choose is that I went to a store and the guy opened some boxes so I could type on them (not hooked up to computer) and I could get a feel for sensitivity and noise. Then I chose.

Also, is it good for my needs? It has Cherry MX red. someone who has ever used them, let me know.


Razer gets great reviews but don't last long. Ducky, not big name in US but great brand, has great keyboards. Check them out. I went with a Ducky over Razer.

The one you chose is pricey but excellent. I prefer an extra column of keys to the left at that price. Sometimes called "G" keys.

I also would like to buy this keyboard "Ducky Shine II" but its out of stock everywhere.

The Shine II has been replaced with the Shine 3, that might be why.

No idea, I live in Australia so import taxes into Greece aren't exactly in the field of anything I know..
I would look for a European retailer or even a UK one before shipping from the the US though.

I'd probably start looking locally and seeing my options then decide from there. Shipping international and importing is really gonna add to the cost...and not to mention how long it'll take to get it.
