Looking to buy a new keyboard asap <$150

Hey, my last keyboard (g110) just fried on me, so I thought I'd be a good time to try something new.

I have never tried mechanical before so it's hard for me to include that in my decision, though i'm not against it.

In order of importance, I would like this keyboard to have the following:

I have found a few candidates after searching:
Corsair Raptor K50
SteelSeries Apex
Corsair Vengeance K95

All opinions welcomed! I'd like to have made my purchase by friday.

Thanks

  2. Yea, I had a feeling that would be the one recommended. ^^

    If anyone has had some experience with the k95 or knows of anything similar to it, I'd like to hear about it :)
  3. Well since I couldn't find anything better for the price that fit my needs, so I went with the k95 :)
  4. I've had the apex for a few weeks now and it is very cool. the program to to customize keyboard isnt the best but im a fan i have to say.

    What games do you play with it and how does it respond so far? I really don't use flat keys (not even on laptops) at all and was worried I'd be a little bit lots during rts games trying to find my way around that keyboard. I also read it has noticeable ghosting issues; have you noticed anything so far?

    I really liked the features and the look of it though :D


    I haven't noticed anything bad in my brief mmo/fps/rpg games, have only had for a bit over a month with finals haven't been able to test much.
