    Chroma for now, however maybe soon to be Mechanical Switches, when I get a Blackwidow ;).

    HANDS DOWN Mechanical switches! Mechanical switches have the upper hand if you ask me. Keystroke sensitivity, travel distance, the click-clack sound it makes that helps me get hyped up when i play or keeps me focused when typing something work related. Chroma is cool and all but it's not essential in line of work. As for the programmable keys, well, it's nice to have that option, but honestly you can make do without. I can also give up Ten Keypad because I've always been a laptop user and I've had a laptop without one and it's not that big of a deal really.Funny thing is, my top 2 most

    I'd have to say the the non-exciting numpad sadly... I don't use it at all for gaming but at work it's so easy to type numbers without looking that it'd drive me crazy to not have it.

    Mechanical switches would be the top pick, but i think others work well together.

    Give me Chroma and take my life!
    Simple as that. I've said it to Splinxes on a stream and I'll say it again, you guys have the best lighting effects by far!

    However, no gamer can go without his linear mechanical switches. So I think I'm gonna have to save two from been gone forever. The mech keys and the Chroma.

    I'm all about the Ten Keypad.
    I've always used Ten Keypad and my hands naturally go there when I have to type numbers. It's like muscle memory that can't be shaken off that easily.

    Look how far back that monitor was sitting on the PC. It was a setup!

    At first glance when I red this post I thought that mechanical was the only possible answer.

    That was until I saw the ten key part.
    Will it be for work or private life, I can't live without this right end of my keyboards.

    I make a lot of maths so they're priceless and IG I put some shortcuts that are easily recognizable.

    However, I haven't tried optical switches. They seem like the replacement for mechanical afaik :big_grin_:

    Ten Keypad - I may be old but for me the keyboard that does not have them looks incomplete. Besides I'm using them quite often and would be hard for me to give up on them.

    Mechanical switches would be on the second place
    The rest is just aesthetics

    That is just my humble opinion and probably many would disagree with me.
