GUYS. GUYS. HALP. I CAN'T DECIDE ON MY BOTTOM HALF.
In all seriousness, I'm torn between Stainless Bottom with Mahogany, and a Milled Aluminum, and in that I'm not sure about red or black. Black would match my computer and stuff... but red might look better. Also, any thoughts on Gateron Clears vs Browns? Goin for hybrid gaming and typing. This keyboard is so cool!
I think you're going to have an incredibly difficult time gaming on such a small keyboard, especially if you rely on F-keys with any degree of regularity. I've tried gaming on a Poker II and Happy Hacking Keyboard, and it was way too much hassle. If you REALLY want to try it, I'd go with the browns, as Gateron clears are very light weight and could result in a greater frequency of accidental key presses.
Being a dedicated mmo-gamer in need for number and f-row i've to disagree on behalf of the Planck.
Fully programmable you can design yourself a dedicated "gaming-layer" with all the keys you need, these options are not given to this extend with a stock poker or hhkb.
Gateron clears are like really light mx red switches. If you like the tactile bump, (which I find annoying) go with the browns. If not, go with Gateron red switches. They are a tad heavier than Gateron clears, but smoother than Cherry MX Reds.
I guess I do use my function keys a fair amount. Does they keyboard shift layers quickly? I guess worst case I could always remap something. There are only 4 function keys I use regularly, and only two of them that need to be any sort of quick. I don't play FPS really either.
So for the switches, the Reds would be good? I do a lot of typing too, and I've heard typists like the tactile. I played on a friend's MX Browns for a few hours and it was great. I was afraid the clears would be too light, I'm coming from a rubber dome. I think I'll go with the browns to be safe. You guys are the best!
Yeah, if you used the browns for a decent amount of time and enjoyed them, they are definitely a safe choice.
