    So i've been dealing with one of the hardest decisions in my life and i need your guys opinion on which keyboard i should get, hopefully you guys can help me out with this one. i've been wanting one of these keyboards for so long and but i never had the money to buy one but, now i do. I've noticed that there are a lot of features that have been taken away from the Blackwidow X Chroma such as the Macro Keys,Usb port, Audio and Microphone jack which to think of is a lot of features to take away. Also the lighting of the Blackwidow X seems to be more dim because of the white backplate being taken away and i'm a huge RGB fan. Now you're probably thinking i've made my decisions from the things i've said but the only thing that i want to know is does the Blackwidow X sound and feel better than the Standard bw? I've heard a couple videos on Youtube comparing bwx and the bw. and it sounds like the Blackwidow X sounds more "Click-y" and "Crisp" which i like unlike the bw sounds more plastic-y. I've also noticed some complaints about the BWX rusting after a while i don't really have a humid room but my hands do sweat a lot after a good amount of time typing/playing. Sorry for the long post! i really need help on this one! thanks a lot for reading

    P.S this is also gonna be my first Mechanical Keyboard so i want to make it the best :wink_::smile_:

    Just a question, Why did you make another one of those posts? You made this one here.

    According to the House Rules, You can only make a duplicate post if the one in question is over a month old.

    EDIT: Not trying to come off as rude, Just wondering why.

    Whichever keyboard you get depends on what you want. If you use macro keys a lot right now, or know that you will definitely use them if you have them, then get the Blackwidow Chroma, but if you don't really care about the macros or the USB, then you can get the Blackwidow X Chroma. (You can add white paper between the LEDs to make the keyboard brighter if you want.)
