CM Storm QuickFire XT - Full Size Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Blue/Green Switches
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great clicky feel for typing. Not quite buckling-spring (like the old IBM keyboards) but closest I have gotten. Satisfying travel and sound. It is quite loud, so if typing quietly while webcamming is important, don't get this. Or get it anyway b/c it's worth it.

Windows key lock is a good feature for gaming.

N-key rollover via ps/2 is good. No ghosting whatsoever. Didn't try on USB.

Cable is a normal-sized USB plug, which can also disconnect from the keyboard itself.

Cons: Wish the media keys didn't require a Fn keypress, but it's a minor gripe.

Not backlit, but doesn't matter. I'd rather the LEDs not burn out/distract.

Other Thoughts: Wish there was something this good in a split/ergonomic form factor.

LITE-ON SK-2085 Black 4 Function Keys USB Wired Slim Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Have to update my previous 5 star review...
Cheap, slim, small

Cons: Upon some longer term usage, some problems became apparent with the action of the keys not registering. It's kind of "squishy" in that some keypresses do not register, especially the spacebar. This got so annoying I spent another 15 bucks and got a logitech, and declined to return this one since the refund would be almost as much to ship back

LITE-ON SK-2085 Black 4 Function Keys USB Wired Slim Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Very quiet. Solid feeling. Good so far

Cons: Not as thin as I thought it'd be from the pictures.

Other Thoughts: It's not apple keyboard thin by far, but what would you expect at this price. It definitely seems durable and solid, doesn't have a cheap feel. The travel distance is shorter than a normal one of course. But if you like thinkpad keyboards, I think you'd probably like this, though the thinkpads have a bit more of a tactile "click" feedback, this one's squishier.
