I am in the market for a mechanical keyboard. There are only two things that I am looking for right now and that is it has to have red LEDs and be of darker color. The ME3 Blackwidow fits the bill with an incredible lightning options but I have heard a lot about their bad quality rep. Some people say they are good, when they work, others say they have had to RMA them 2-3 times and that Razer's customer service is a nightmare. The other alternative would be the Max Keyboard Nighthawk, however, being a new company they don't have as many reviews to go by and I have yet to be able to find a review comparing these two keyboards. I was wondering if any of the users here,or Rodney himself, could give me a bit of advice into what to buy.

Why not a Cooler Master Storm like Trigger, Quick Fire?

I looked into it, to be honest it didn't interest me as much as the other 2 keyboards I mentioned. Specially I didn't like that the USB connector was not built in and instead was the plug in type, giving it the possibility of losing connection if I move the keyboard too much. Also the AC adapter does not come with the keyboard and thus I would be forced to get a third party one.

Hi, i'm a kind of gamer that game 3-4 hours at each day 365 days/years and... for me the razer products always looks invitin but never had any fun with it... had 3 mice from them, and for me and 2 of my friend, all the mice that i had roughly work for a year.. not too much pass that and my 2 friend too had problem with razer mice in 1 to 2 year from the original buy... althought i never had any keyboard from razer (only had generic and logitech g11 and g510 for now)

PS: i had a Deathadder, a naga and a mamba from razer... these 3 mice we're dead betweeen the 1st years of use but always replaced by newer version on warranty (had my naga for replacement of my deathadder and my Mamba for the naga replacement... i know i had "tell the company really gently and i was not frustated" to f*** their ****** but the Mamba was 6 months old and wireless connection problem appears... i simply bought a CM storm sentinel and never had a problem with the CM (already 8 months old) and razer send me a new Mamba free of charge... Razer has the service but for me, their product don't last enough too worth the price... (ex: my g11 last me 6 years and is always working in my garage computer for now... just wanted a new keyboard ;)
