    Buying Advice: Mechanical Keyboard

    I'm currently in the process of building my home desktop setup. I have my machine and monitor picked out, but I'm still researching which keyboard to buy. I'm not looking for for a gaming keyboard, since this setup will only be used for writing books and editing podcasts. I'm just looking for a really good mechanical keyboard for typing. Any recommendations are welcome. Currently, I've only been able to find DasKeyboard and WASD as good non-gaming keyboards. Thanks to all who reply!

    I vote Das Keyboard. Been using one at work for years.

    Are you using keyboard 4 or one of the other ones?

    Basically pornhub for mechanical keyboards.

    I like Corsair’s K70 series. I had a couple of requirements when I was in the market for a mechanical keyboard:

    • Standard layout – no weird arrangements around the Home key cluster/arrows, no tenkeyless, no messing with the Windows keycap.
    • Minimalistic design.
    • Arial font. No weird Star Trek-esque fonts.
    • Minimal backlighting. I’m not principally opposed to RGB but some companies really take it too far.
    • Some convenience buttons are okay.

    The K70 series fit these requirements perfectly. You get your choice of mechanical key type, backlight color (or RGB, if you want); it’s built like a tank, comfortable, ridiculously easy to clean, and has a very satisfying volume rocker. They had some issues with backlight LEDs dying out in early revisions but that’s been mostly resolved. I have two and might get myself an RGB version.
