Default Don't know which keyboard to choose.

I'm looking for a new mechanical keyboard and since there are so many to choose from I don't know which one to buy. I'm looking for a price of $80 and under, any brand besides Razer (not a fan), I prefer the cherry blue switches (I love the clicky noise). Any help would be appreciated.

Do you need the 10key pad? If not the coolermaster QFR is a great board, I love mine with blues. Keycool also makes great keyboards in your price range Online shop for professional mechanical gaming keyboards If you like even smaller boards, the poker II is great, a little more than your price range banggood has free shipping and no tax.

Coolermaster TK is a good option for you then.

I bought the CM Trigger mechanical keyboard with blue switches and love it. Paid about $60 at Memory Express when it was on sale. Just don't spill coffee onto it. Mine recovered after I dried it out but don't want to go there again.

I'm going to spend the extra $20 on the TK, If it's the keyboard I want, it'd gonna last me for a while so I may as well buy it.

If you can, go to memex or ncix stores to try out boards and switch types so you're 100% certain.
