    finally finally finally, its here. I received the keyboard today at work late this afternoon after almost chewing their ass off again but lets not get into that because its here now :)

    I've gotta say, this is the first post ive done after installing the G710+ and I've gotta say, wow, this feels awesome! it's so light on the fingertips and I now understand what people mean by the "mushiness" of the membrane type keyboards. Also, im pretty sure my words per min have risen quite significantly just because of the ease of pressing these switches. Really enjoying it aye! once ive had a bit more of a play with it I'll give a more in depth review. but right now my fingertips are lovin it!

    Went from a gaming keyboard to a mech (Unicomp) and never looked back. I think Unicomp holds the "Buckling Spring" patent of the old IBM keyboards. As stated earlier its all personal preference.

    My Corsair K70 arrived yesterday and wow its a great keyboard and being my first mechanical keyboard I was worried that I wouldn't like the red switches, anyway its fine to use and love the black brushed aluminium finish and the textured 1-6 keys and wasd keys which can be removed for plain keys, also no software is needed for this keyboard, it has 3 levels of brightness for the red LEDs which can be turned off or on for individual keys, nice keyboard looks great with my Haf-X case which has red led fans.

    I'm glad you like your board! Its always a toss up whether or not you will like certain mechanical keys. I got lucky with my blues, and it looks like you did with your reds. Enjoy :)

    I picked up a Ducky Shine 2 with cherry brown switches last week replacing a very old Saitek board. My fingers are in heaven :)

    Nice. Since posting in this thread last, I decided to ditch my old Blackwidow and go with a Ducky with Cherry Browns as well. I've been very happy with that choice! At first I was looking at the Ducky Shine 3's and although those look sweet, I decided to go for longevity and solidity vs the flash and 320974032 back lighting options.

    Final choice - Ducky DK9008 G2 Pro with PBT dye subs!

    I can confirm that my Blackwidow is pretty neat. I got this one http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-keyboards-keypads/razer-blackwidow-stealth-2013/
    (not the stealth version, the one with the blue switches) and it has exceeded my expectations for a Razer product.

    FYI the Logitech G710+ is on sale a bunch of places right now for $99-109, so far I've seen Amazon, Newegg, and even Best Buy.

    I have my Logitech K120 and it's better than 2 gamer/mechanical keyboards I've tried.

    I adore my Corsair K70R. This is my third mechanical keyboard and my first with red switches, which I've found I type fastest on. Before this I had a Das Keyboard Professional S, and before that an original Razer Black Widow.

    After using the Logitech G710+ for a while now, I'm probably going to get the Corsair K95 keyboard some time within the next few weeks. I've been wanting to try a keyboard with red switches for a while now.
