Question on comparing mechanical KB noise

This Logitech G710+ has o-rings already under the keys. It's on sale at Best Buy for ~$120 plus tax:

Thats the one I was referring to, seemed to be a decent keyboard but its too large due to the stupid macro keys.

ended up getting a killer deal on a corsair k70 which IMO is the perfect size for a keyboard.

When looking at keyboards I see a lot of illuminated keyboards with complaints over the LEDs dying.

Thanks for the advice, I'll see if my dad has some spare o rings lying around to try out otherwise I'll start looking at other keyboards like the corsair or logitech.

I know my keyboard is designed to have replaceable keys (at least for WASD) so it should be easy enough to try the rings outs.

edit:
Are there any specific types of rings I should be looking for e.g. washers, sizes, etc.

I've heard of people using dental o-rings for braces. Some companies market o-rings for putting on mechanical keyboards. I guess they have different heights to set different key travel:

Amazon has them too with several reviews:

I thought different densities of rubber o-rings were available too, but my old bookmark expired. It might be fun to just try out whichever little o-ring you have laying around if they are small enough to fit.
