Hi, I am in the market for a gaming keyboard with cherry mx blues. My setup will feature a red/white/black colour scheme and I would like to get the keyboard with red leds. I have been looking at the Ducky Shine 3 and quite like it, but it lacks macros.
Thanks!

There are no keyboards with your specifications. However, you can take a Ducky Shine 3. Since it doesn't have any macro keys, you can use the program AutoHotKey and remap some of the buttons as macros. For example, if you don't use the four buttons on the top right corner or the number pad a lot, you can use AutoHotKey to change them into a macro key. It may not be the best solution, as the macros will be on the right side of the keyboard, but it is a possibility.

Another option is the get the Razer Orbweaver as a macro pad. It's a bit expensive and it's green LED but again, another possibility.

The last option I can think of is getting the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013, which comes with Cherry MX Blue, 5 macro keys, and Green LEDs, and modding it to have red LEDs.

@neonKP Im in the the same boat as you and I've found a few keyboards like that, these guys haven't done much searching but to be fair, neither have you lol. For macros, you can get something like the Logitech G13 gamepad.

Here are the keyboards I've found with options for Cherry MX Blue switches with Red backlighting:

ThermalTake Meka G
Rosewill Apollo & Helios (Helios has red and green illumination, but you can set all keys to red or green)
CM Storm Trigger
Corsair Vengeance K70

Hope its not too late.

Haha thanks, I've decided to go for the K70 RGB along with a M65 RGB when they come out so that I can be flexible with my color scheme. But thanks for the suggestions anyway! :D

Nice! I was considering the K70 but it looked like a lot of light escapes through the cracks so I went with the Tesoro Durandal G1NL. It has Cherry MX Browns though. Those still have the tactile feedback but they are not as 'clicky.' I lika de clicky, but browns still produce a good enough typing noise :)
