- USB 2.0 Wired
- Cooler Master
I'm just now upgrading from the non-mechanical keyboards I've had before: Dell laptop keyboard, MBP keyboard, and a Logitech G15 for my desktop. This keyboard absolutely dwarfs all of those in build quality, typing accuracy, and typing enjoyment.
That aside, the pros of the keyboard itself:
- I love the backlighting. The white backlight on the MX Browns is what drew me to the keyboard to begin.
- I love the use of the extra capabilities of the "f" keys. The way they are laid out makes sense.
- I like that the window's key can be switched to being a function key.
- I like the sheer quality of the parts of the keyboard. The keys are perfect. I love the weight of the board. It just feels substantial and like I could kill someone with it.
While the pros vastly outweigh the cons, there are still a few cons... Well, one con.
- I'm not a huge fan of the integrated number pad with the arrow keys and the home/insert/delete buttons, etc. It's a little weird, but I'm already getting used to it. That said, I would rather have it weird and there on this size of a board than not there at all.
If you're looking at making the switch from a standard (regular?) membrane keyboard to this, definitely do it. I absolutely am so happy that I made the change. I look for things to type on this keyboard. It makes me sad when I play a game that is mouse-centric, as I want to be listening to the feedback of the keys. I guess it's time to try and find an equally awesome mouse, but I don't think I'm gonna have good luck with that.
