    Those pudding caps are pretty cool. I never thought about two-tone keycaps before. (y)

    I'm running a Logitech 903 Lightspeed mouse and a 910 Spark RGB keyboard on my main rig. I've got a Das Keyboard Pro (old model from a few years ago) with a Swiftpoint Z Model 700 3D mouse (from Kickstarter) on my backup rig. I just got in today's mail a Das 5Q RGB keyboard (also from Kickstarter) which I'll try out later today.

    Just bought and unboxed yesterday.. Ducky One2 skyline with PBT keycaps. So far so good! (MX-browns)

    My previous rosewill mx-brown keyboard died after several years use.
    Mouse is still wired logitech MX.

    I am using the Eagletec KG011-RGB budget keyboard that has several manufacturers. I am very impressed with it. I had been using a box of 10 Internet KBs from Microsoft but moving up to a mechanical KB has been awesome. It uses the Outemu blue switches. I had thought of returning it and getting a KB with Cherry Blues, but it turns out I really like the feel of the switches and the keycaps, despite not being PBT. Plus you can just rinse it down apparently. For less than $50 couldnt recommend it more.

    Yeah really surprised how much I love it. Such a different experience than a dome keyboard and the tactile clickiness of the keys is just really sublime. I had sort of liked the Razer Blacwidow X chroma KB in the store but Amazon showed this as a flyer, so glad I did.

    That looks a lot like a generic version Corsair's mechanical keyboards!

    Yes that looks extremely similar. I know that there are 2 or 3 different companies that essentially sell the same keyboard out of the same plant in Taiwan. The mounting plate definitely looks the same although that Corsair has more features. So it might be a knockoff of that KB, but it gets phenomenal reviews on Amazon and I really couldn't be happier with it. My only niggle is that white is not one of the preset LED colors. One of the other manufactures of same keyboard does include white. Debating picking that one up.

    Older (5 yo?) Logitech G105
    Pros: heavy keyboard feel to it - I learned to type on an IBM Selectric
    Cons: sort of hard to clean; space bar doesn't always work

    Thinking (hard) about a Corsair K70... but not the new LED model (lots of complaints on the Corsair Forum)
    It has Cherry mechanical keys... so can go stiff, like Blue or Brown types
    /waiting for Corsair's next Refurb discount sale

    Someone (????) makes a bare-bones mechanical keyboard that could be fun to build an enclosure around - if done very Steampunk-ish

    Got a very, very old Logitech G110 (2005?) w/ 100% working macro keys and space bar. Combined with a Razer Mamba Chroma that I can't stand. None of the macro's work any longer, and I have to change batteries more often than I have to change my socks, and I never joke about socks.

    Kinesis Freestyle Edge and a crappy ergo mouse that I want to replace. Love the keyboard but had a bit of a learning curve with some of the non-standard layout after using Microsoft Natural Keyboards for 21 years

    I've already posted my mouse and keyboard, so now I'd like to present my just-finished DIY mouse bungee. I dub it "Class Incarnate."

    Just bought a Logitech G-Pro TenKeyless yesterday and so far I'm liking it. It doesn't have a wrist rest so I keep hitting the left Control button when typing and shortcut into a new Chrome window which is aggravating. It uses the Romer G switches which I do not really like that much. They're not smooth at all. They're like Reds but feel like they need to be oiled or something. They don't suck but they're not as much "fun" to type on as Browns or Blues. The Logitech Gaming software works great and is easy to use so it was no problem to get the backlighting to the color I wanted.

    I guess I kinda like it but if I had it to buy all over again I probably wouldn't just because I don't like the feel of the keys. I like the looks, features and software a lot tho so I'm hoping the keys "break in" or something soon.

    That all-white backlit board is just begging for a Mac keycap set, classic Univers 57 italic font justified in the lower-left and everything.

    It's hard for me not to think of bitten fruit products when I see something so thoroughly white like that. Must be me thinking of their mid-2000s design phase still.

    It's getting tougher to get wireless keyboards that still have a number pad on the far right. Feels like most of them are swapping to the smaller form factor.
    As someone who games with the arrow keys, I need that number pad!

    I just use a separate number pad when gaming or doing any calculations for work.

    Mouse: Razer Death Adder Elite

    Corsair k70 Lux with brown key switches, and a Logitech G9X (that I have repaired a few times over the years...) as well as a Logitech wireless M705 when not FPS gaming.

    That's a pretty Ducky. I wonder how often you'll have to clean it though. My model M isn't bright white like that I still can tell when it's dirty. :oops:

    Corsair Scimitar Pro, Corsair K55 tenkeyless mechanical, and a Logitech G13.

    I've got most of my games set up so that the keyboard is never used except for actual typing.

    Just recently tried a Cyberpower Skorpion K2 (https://www.cyberpowerpc.com/page/skorpion-k2/) that I got on here and my hands absolutely love it. Not sure if it's because of the switches (I have a lot of blue boards) or if it's because of the keycaps, but next to the model m, this is about as close to natively comfortable as my hands have come on a non-buckling spring keyboard.

    I just replaced my Logitech G602 with another one. The old one developed an annoying double clicking issue on the left button.

    I loved that mouse. Turns out that double clicking problem is common enough there are threads about how to fix it out there. I sourced the microswitch from digikey or mouser and just soldered a new one it and it works great again.

    Then i lent that mouse to a friend and haven't seen it since.. hmm.
