Gaming keypads, on the other side, are a godsend. Once I got my ZBoard I could never go back to WASD. I've been rocking a MERC for almost a decade now. --- 4670K OC | 2GB PNY GTX 770 OC | 8GB 1600 | 120GB SSD | 1TB WD Blue | Gigabyte Z87MX | EVGA 600w | BitFenix Phenom M | Win8.1 Pro http://imgur.com/KaTyP5o.jpg
Cherry Blues are infinitely better for typing than gaming, though of course they trump rubber domes for gaming as well. IMHO your money is fine. --- Annie's always asking people to see her bare tibbers. ~ jalm94
I bought a Roccat Isku last week simply because I've been needing a new keyboard, and I've heard good things about it. The blue is a nice touch, though I've only used the extra keys for World Of Warcraft, which I shortly realized that the game simply isn't for me.
I really just enjoy having a higher quality keyboard, along with a pretty large wrist rest that comes in handy. Also, I enjoy the well-done media keys. --- "Opinions are like magnets, nobody knows how they work." - Foppe
