Help: Gaming Keyboard
My wonderful wife has stated that she will buy me a new keyboard for Xmas. I still am undecided on which to go with so need your guys help. Everyone talks about mechanical keyboards being amazing. One of my coworkers had one and said he couldn't take the clicks of it. I've also read that Cherry MX switches were the best to use for the least amount of noise.
Basically I've gone into information overload. Everyone talks about the DAS keyboards as being great, the Razer as being crap, and i think Corsair as being another decent choice. Never using a mechanical keyboard I am wondering 2 things:
Are the clicks loud enough to bother other people in the room?
Am I going to hate it?
Is the feel of the keyboard that much different that I should try one out at a store before buying one online?
Ok ... I realize that the questions will have different answers based on your own individual answers but thought I'd ask anyway.
EDIT: I'd like to keep the price around $100 but could go a bit more if necessary.
