    You can only pick one and the rest are gone forever.
    1. Mechanical Switches
    2. Chroma
    3. Programmable Keys
    4. Ten Keypad

    More importantly, why? The fate of keyboards is in your hands!

    Like and comment to be entered into the weekly. Two good responses will receive a nice batch of Silver.

    Toaster, cause you can't use a keyboard without getting your fill of good old toasty goodness. See that gif up there? You don't want to be that guy, I bet he didn't get his toast for that day. Sad.

    5. Ultra slim keyboard with low profile keys that are super accurate, comfortable and silent. :heart_eyes:

    Chroma perhaps the most important for me.

    In my experience, most fancy keyboards are more or less the same. A few years ago I am still using the office's use keyboard for gaming and I could still perform adequately.

    But the style for gaming keyboard is one of the gaming experiences and Chroma is for my personal satisfaction.

    I prefer a flatter keystroke with Mechanical Switches applied. Often in a shooting game, there was an advantage for shorter key travel than traditional keyboards.

    I really like the trying feel of mechanical switches !!
    Green or purple are the best so far. The only backside is the purple switches are so much expensive....

    I choose mech switches. Why, I guess the rest are more for aesthetics.

    Chroma - Just purely keyboard lights. It's just a "nice to have" and does not give any additional attributes when playing games.
    Programmable Keys - For me again, it's just a "nice to have". Workarounds can be done.
    Ten Keypad - This one is hard. I do love my Ten Keypad but some can live using their TKL's keyboards, right?

    So why I choose mechanical switches? I love working with them. I can feel my keystrokes. The sounds that it produces when typing looooooong office works creates harmony. My fingers does not hurt when typing long. Very responsive keystrokes when playing. For me it has more benefits compares on the other choices ;)

    Mechanical switches: Because I can't imagine going back to a mushy membrane (even though my Cherry MX Blue switches are loud).

    Hard choice, i like the mechanical switches but also the chroma. Those two wont work separate.

    Mechanical Switches are a no-brainer!
    there is no other factor that wil influence your typing experience as much as the travel distance and the comfort/satisfacton with every keypress.
    I've had experience with 60% keyboards so I'm used to no numpad nad no programmabe keys.
    The chroma would hurt a little but you could compensate with a DIY solution!

    Hello friends,

    I choose Razer Chroma.

    The choice is easy because the Razer Huntsman optical switches is better than obsolete mechanical switches technology. ^ _ ^
