    My keyboard is hyperx alloy elite 2. I really love the click but it's so F**king noisy. Typing without a headset is so painful 😂 I'm looking for a quite keyboard and the click or the keys are similar to the alloy elite 2. Any suggestions?

    I used to have a Roccat Kone XTD mouse, it broke 3 times in a year so I got my money back. Also had one of their headsets and guess what? IT BROKE after like 3 months. Im never touching this company again. Also, if you accidentally hit the windows key while gaming are you even a real gamer? In my 15 years of gaming I dont recall that ever happening to me xD

    MadCatz Strike TE is still the best keyboard. They're finally making them again with RGB and Cherry MX switches, just cant wait for the STRIKE 7 to get remade, I want a removable, swappable, separately usable numpad that can act as a keypad so you dont waste desk space while gaming, or put it on the left as a streamer's macro pad

    Can's say anything good about Roccat from my experiences. Hat about 10 mice and Keybords from them and all had poor material and build quality. Most of them failed after just a few weeks. Key not responding and mouse jumping around without doing anything. Tryed roccat caus it is cheaper than the razer stuff i normaly get but had better reviews than the realycheap stuff. And RGB of cause. But after about 2 Month swaping and refunding all the roccat stuff failing one after another i payed the extra 50 bucks an got back to razer. 3 years without failure since then. Never again!

    @hylke45 i can remember the Isku FX and the Kone XTD. Both broke like days after receiving them. got several replacements from amazon for them. all with the same problems after a few days. if it's the cheaper stuff of roccats lineup it still shouldn't break immediately. overall build quality aside. maybe it was just very very bad luck. i just hope other people don't have the same experience with roccat like me :)

    I've had multiple Roccat products. Did have one product break fairly quickly, ended up getting it refunded luckily. Though I've heard a few bad things about the cheaper stuff of Roccat ~5-10 years ago. Have had a couple of their products for years. Have a few minor complaints, but overal positive and price/quality seems fine to me. Don't know which products you tried and when, could be really bad luck, could be the really cheap Roccat products I have no experience with... Probably will be using the same Roccat mouse as long as they make a mouse with this size/shape and it'll last. Other than that I don't care too much lol.

    As a disappointed owner of this keyboard with it's titan switches I can recommend to stay away from this garbage. Unless your room is sealed and dust-free. After 1 year of use keys will start registering randomly, registering twice or more per press or not registering at all unless you press it hard. Look it up online annd do not be tempted by the low price or the rgb.

    Semi-related: I like keebs that include a numpad like this one does, but once you get a taste for mechanical keebs and want to make your own, you won't find many options out there for kits that include a numpad. Even trying to put something together from parts is iffy, and trying to buy a separate numpad and a tenkeyless kit that matches is pretty much mythical. Maybe the mechanical keyboard scene will pick back up as COVID winds down.

    You know... When you get shoulder pain from having the mouse and the keyboard a bit further apart, the problem is not the numpad it's you. That's a telltale sign you game to much. Move your shoulder a bit (you know rotation and abduction and the whole range of motion and stuff) during the day this won't happen in the first place.

    They are not just faster, they are more accurate and less prone to double activation than mechanical and they don't age as quickly since only the spring matters for "feel". I have had a Tesoro Excalibur SE since they came out years ago and it still feels day 1 brand new.
