I don't think keyboard will have any performance impact, it just feels nicer
As long as ur keyboard doesn't drop inputs or anything stupid, a rubber dome is completely fine.

I just like finger-gasms everytime i press keys.

Like many setups here, it is useful if your opponent doesn't move and you get 4 Ts in a row.

Yeah, my exact problem was dropped inputs and delayed reactions. It's blatantly obvious when it happens too sometimes.

Ok, if you want cheap and don't care about mechanical, look up QSenn.

Its a rubber dome keyboard that a lot of korean Professional starcraft1 players used, and even to this day several starcraft2 players (DRG comes to mind) use.


PS/2, Black, gaming edition (16 Key rollover)

Ok, in that case:

Backlighting or no backlighting?

Do you want to type on this, or mainly tetris, or a mix?
  • Typing -> MX Blue (not as good for double tapping)
  • Mix -> MX Brown
  • Gaming -> MX Black/Red (good for double-tapping)

Traditional or gamey? (e.g. do you want it to look like a completley normal keyboard, then when someone uses it BAM it feels amazing)

I think backlighting would look really cool. I think mainly Tetris, because I can just type on my normal keyboard. I don't mind if it looks weird because I'm only going to use it for Tetris.
So I guess MX Black/Red would be optimal?

All mechanical keyboards of any switch are > for typing than a regular keyboard.

What colour backlighting?

Since you currently use a rubber dome, you probably slam your keys really hard and hence should probably stick to MX Blacks

Do you want a numpad?

Current Recommendation:
Ducky Shine
wasdkeyboards
tankguys

Less Recommended:
Generic gaming brands (coolermaster,razer,steelseries etc)

I'm using a CM Storm QuickFire Rapid with black cherries, although I think the red cherries are also worth looking into. Since it's tenkeyless, I also have a separate numpad on the side.

Any color would be awesome to me.
I don't mind not having a numpad,and unfortunately I do slam them pretty hard. >.< People can hear me playing from outside.
Caff, I'll definitely look into the one you have.

good keyboard. If i didnt use the numpad i would have gotten that one. My current one has ugly CM branding all over it (i prefer a "normal" keyboard look"

@dhuang note this doesnt have backlighting

I personally think backlighting is overhyped, its totally not necessary.

Mine's nice for typing and tetris - it's a Corsair K60 - and Polaris has got the K90. I'm sure everyone's nice keyboards are nice for tetris. The thing with membrane keyboards is that you don't know what you're gonna get when you buy it - it's more of a risk. My old membrane keyboard was good, but I have typed on so many worse ones!

I really appreciate everyone's help though!

Try going to a store and experimenting with switches.

Nope, lots of stores here sell them. And this is australia, which is ages behind in tech to americaland.

Buying online is cheaper. Do what you would do with shoes. Try them out in a store, buy online for winning.

List of features in order of Importance:
  • Switch type
  • 10 Keyless or not
  • Media Keys
  • Macros
  • Backlighting
