    Apologies for the many questions heh, I like to make informed decisions
    I have an RGB corsair keyboard I got secondhand, had it for a couple years now I think. I use it every day and there's no visible wear at all. They make some good stuff.
    And I'm happy to answer questions I have the answer to!

    Both @Carnivale and @Goddammit have corsair keyboards.. seems like that's the go-to then! "100% of respondents use and love Corsair mechanical keyboards!"

    Thanks everyone for your input!

    I had been using Ducky Zero and Rosewill for years. They are all great.
    Mechanical keyboards these day should be more affordable already if I dont recall wrongly.

    corsair has really good products as well as logitech; probably the most popular is razer, but their products have always been a little overpriced and personally mine have shit the bed pretty early on a few times. i switched to a corsair keyboard recently and i love it! there's also different kinds of mech keyboards you can buy, and i personally buy ones that have they keys sitting off the base of the keyboard so it's easier to get the animal fur out from under them and it's a lot easier to clean lmao. but once you use a mech keyboard you won't want to go back!!

    I'm currently using a Corsair STRAFE Mechanical Gaming Keyboard — CHERRY® MX Red, bought it for $100 at the time (and that still seems to be the price from what I've seen online).
    It uses the Red Switch, which is something you should be paying attention to.

    Red Switch is linear, no bumps or clicks.
    Brown Switch is tactile, has a tactile bump but no clicks.
    Blue Switch is clicky, features both tactile bump and an audible click.

    The Cherry MX is like the gold standard for mechanical keyboards and I'd definitely recommend going for one.
    Either Red or Black (black is better than red but more expensive too) should be okay.

    That said, a mechanical keyboard changes your experience in ways I could never describe through words.
    It might feel a little bit weird at first, but it's definitely worth it: it's easy to clean, the response time is incredibly fast and it feels very comfortable to type or play video games on.

    Just chiming in to say I've had a Cooler Master CM Storm TKL for 5 years, and it really started to show it's age after 3. The soft touch coating wore away, which is pretty grotty when it does, and the plastic frame has cracked. Also had several LEDs die. Have heard better things about Corsair
