    Corsair K95 RGB Platinum FTW. Even if you only spent $99 on this custom build, if you purchased it from a company, you wouldn't give it a very good review. Just looking at it, I wouldn't spend $30 on it.

    Please do more MechKey content Linus. I'm currently running a DZ60 build in a Pok3r case with GMK Red Samurai and Outemu Ice Purple switches (lubed.) I'm working on another build right now, but the case is still under production - which will be a 1-of-1 custom Space65 with lubed 62g Zilent V2's and GMK Laser Kobe. Everything will be dampened as much as possible on that one (:

    ok its not that much if you buy aditional springs, and they got ripped off paying $1 per switch, they should be something more like 33c per switch for cherry.

    There should be more modular mechanical keyboard option that would then support the RGB sync software. I would love to have a well damped CoolerMaster M format or TKL format keyboard with MX Silent Black switches and custom keykaps.

    Outside of the layout Qwerty issue, modern computer keyboards are mostly terrible, especially the full size 100% versions which frankly force the user to either the user to malposition the mouse or the keyboard causing not only slowed down productivity, but also wrist and possibly elbow issues.
    The standard full size layout should be from left to right: Number Pad / Arrows + Home, End, etc... / Everything Else. That way the user has enough room to move the mouse, while being able to move onto the keyboard and type easily. A right handed person can easily use the left-sided number pad. Ironically, the modern full size keyboard layout is far better for left handed people than it is for right handed people.
