I am hoping someone can help me understand why I am having issues using a mechanical keyboard.
Let's start at the beginning. I have owned a Logitech G910 (Orion Spark) for about 2 years and have struggled mightily with typing on it. I do believe that the spacebar is broken as pressing on the right side does not register at all and the key sticks. What does happen and I don't understand is that keys will double type and sometimes triple type. I would say it is quite random. Had to stop using it for anything other than playing games. Played with keyboard settings and cleaned the board thoroughly. I even bought new keys that were flat top. This was an expensive board (in my opinion) and then more so with another $30 bucks to replace the keys. Little changed and I ended up using two keyboards.
After getting tired of two keyboards, but really enjoying the feel of mechanical keys as well as the cool per key lighting, I ordered another board, the Logitech G213. I failed in my research on this as the same problems exist with typing, but the damned thing only lights in "zones", no per key illumination.
Now I have the Razer Cynosa Chroma and really missing the mechanical keys. No typing issues though and the per key illumination is back to what I like. Another tech/gaming forum was basically saying that mechanical keyboards were for gaming and not business. The sensitivity was not geared well for typing. This seems odd to me, but every year I get older, I loose my comprehension of these things.
So, here I am looking at another keyboard on-line (SteelSeries Apex 5) wondering if it is just me or whether something out there meets my needs. Do I just not understand how mechanical boards work and just need to go back to two keyboards?
