    Finally (and hopefully) i'm getting a team together that knows a little of this and a little of that; and maybe all my open source projects that are half written can begin to be released. :)

Since we are talking about mechanical keyboards I feel that it could help the thread to give you some knowledge in what the actual difference is. Almost every mechanical keyboard come with Cherry MX switches. And the different switches are categorised by different colours, all of which have different upsides and downsides.

 

It is the MX Blue, and the MX Brown which are regarded as the top-notch typing switches. The brown is less tactile than MX Blue, and therefore makes less noise. I really enjoy the tactile response of the blue switches, and the clicky-sound is exhilarating. It should be worth noting that I only use the blue switches in my personal office. I do not think it would be a good idea to bring a keyboard with blue switches to a office. I have the Das Keyboard Ultimate, and I love it.

 

If you are weighing more towards the gaming brands, I would warn you to not choose anything that uses MX Black, such as the Steelseries 7G. Of all the MX Cherry switches the black one is the one with the highest actuation force required to activate a keystroke. This could result in you feeling tired in your fingers because of the big difference from what you where used to before. And you would not like that, would you? :-)

I just ordered the Deathstalker. I didn't get the ultimate. I can't find a way to justify spending $300 on a keyboard. I went with the expert. I will let you know what it is like when it arrives and I have had a chance to play with it.

Whoever is iffy about a Razer, don't be.

 

I currently own a Razer Blackwidow, and it is AMAZINGGG. It is very good for touch typing.

 

Any Razer product is good, and worth its money.

Sometimes it's hard to detect sarcasm in online posts. That's not the case with this one.
