I cant decide which one of these to get

cherry brown with a number pad but doesn't have the cool click sound which I want.

cherry blue but does not have a number pad but sounds really cool when i'm typing which I absolutely love.

I tried both at Altex and I was leaning towards the rapid but it does not have a number pad. My question is, how important is that number pad and what keyboard would you chose personally?

I never seen anyone on this board recommend that brand.

People have praised these brands...

Ducky Shine
Logitech
razer?

Anyways. I cant help you out but I never knew theat they made keyboards.

We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong.
We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

Might want to check out either a Ducky Shine keyboard, or check out the Corsair K70 keyboard (this one is currently available with Cherry Red switches, but Brown and Blue switches are coming).

The CM storm is supposed to be great for the money actually. At $109 for the full one though, you might as well pony up the extra cash for a Ducky or a Leopold.

Still has a glimmer of hope for Shenmue III

I have a Quickfire Pro. It's a really good keyboard, but I wouldn't pay more than $100 for it. It goes on sale quite a bit.
