Hello all,
I have $120 dollars, and I was looking for a gaming keyboard. I heard mechanical ones were better, but I have no preference after using the two.
Here are my requirements:
-Backlit Keys
-Wired

Here are my wants:
-Blue backlit keys (goes with my rig)
-Big keyboard
-Forearm rest

Less important:
-USB
-Mic/Headphone jack

After searching the web briefly, I found this keyboard, and it looks perfect for my cause:

But, I am open to suggestions. Thank you in advance!

Get extra 30$ and buy a Corsair K95, if you can't, take the Roccat Isku FX or the Steelseries Apex.

Not really liking the layout of the K95, any other suggestions?

What about Logitech G19 or G510?

Yeah well the screen is just an addon that you will never use, but yes, it is and will be one of the best gaming keyboards out there. The screen can show some applications and it has a very simple operating system. But dont expect much from it, because you won't be using it.

OK, you're right, I probably won't. But what about the quality of the keyboard? That is what I am more concerned about. "One of the best gaming keyboards:" is quite general. Would it definitely be a better choicer than the roccat isku fx?

Well that depends. If you like high-profile keys, go for the G19, if you like lower-profile keys, go for the Roccat Isku FX, if you like even-lower-profile keys, go for the Razer Deathstalker. It's not DEFINETLY a good buy, but you are the one that knows yourself best - think about what you want (not what you need), and buy the one that fits better. I would take the Roccat Isku, but I'm just this type of person.

I think the G19 would be better for me, I have a somewhat low profile keyboard right now and I am not very fond of it. Thank you for all of your help!
