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:

    * 12 keys left of keyboard
    * >$150,
    * if it's mechanical to then that's great.
    * I'm mostly playing rts games right now, so any keyboard with little to no anti-ghosting issues would be nice to.
    * just to mention, it needs to be wired, not wireless.

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

corsair k95 gets my vote
macro keys to left, $150, mechanical, should be ghost free, wired.

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 :)

Well since I couldn't find anything better for the price that fit my needs, so I went with the k95 :)

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.
