First things first: My keyboard is dying. I have to type some buttons more than once while typing, there's a slow response, and I have cleaned it. There's even a few keys missing and the Space bar is one of the worstoffenders. Okay, so that was on purpose, but I keep having to go back and edit things I shouldn't have to for looking like that. I can post casually like this, but probably not going to write full stories that well. I hear Mechanical Keyboards work great for writers, but they usually tend to be geared towards Gamers. Nearly all of the articles I've seen display how well it lets you have a split second advantage on other players, so there's only the occasional article on typing for the sake of typing. Specs: I'd like to stay below $200 I have done some research. So far, I like Daskeyboard, Roccat, and Max Keyboard the most. I'm looking for a Brown Switch. Just looking for advice. Best would be "Here's a bad choice, how to avoid it, and why". I'd prefer illuminated keys where the letters light up. Which makes the Max Keyboard Nighthawk a favorite contender at the moment. It helps that it's blue; not digging the red ones. Any writers out there on a Mechanical Keyboard or something else?
