Looking for recommendations for a Mechanical Keyboard

February 4, 2013 10:49:37 AM

I've been using a Razer BlackWidow for almost 2 years now. It was my first mechanical keyboard and although I do like how the keys feel, I'm at the point where I'm completely sick of Razer's stupid buggy Synapse cloud drivers. It's also started doing this thing where if I don't wait long enough after I first boot up(maybe 1-2 minutes) and press a key, the key will just start going crazy and auto repeating as if I'm holding it down, and the only way to fix it is to reboot. It's infuriating.

So, I'm looking for a good alternative for under 100GBP ($150 USD). I like the Cherry MX Blues in the blackwidow but they are quite noisy, so maybe something with MX Browns. I live in the UK, so unfortunately stuff like Deck Keyboards are not an option (as far as I know). Backlit would be nice but not mandatory.

I've been looking at the CM Storm QuickFire Pro, does anyone have any experience with it?

I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!
