Looking for a new keyboard to replace my Redragon Karura.

Probably the R1000 range, ideally mechanical though that's not a must.

I have a corsair k70 lux with cherry mx reds i can highly recommend. I've seen them go on carb for roughly your budget. If you like the red dragon keyboards check out the yama i think it is? Got some good reviews as well.

I agree with Dr Evil, the Corsair K70 is a solid choice, I'm pretty hard on peripherals, but my K70 is a tank, you wont be disappointed.

I am using a K63 Wireless and have found that sometimes the actuating points on the keys are a bit over sensitive. Have you noticed anything?

Nope. All seem well on mine. ONLY and only crit I would give this keyboard, is the small Enter key. I often hit the backslash key when in a hurry. But the more I use it, the better it gets.

I grew up using a Model M, I love the layout. Just saw that sometimes if you wiggle the keys, it can register a key press. Mine has different switches though.

Mechanical is awesome. I would pay a few bucks more if it is mechanical. After using it for a while, I cant push the normal keys fast and deep enough, so strain on my han

Maybe mine is a bit sticky from all the cool drinks spilled...........:)
Are you happy with the wireless? No input lag?

Lol
Yes very, allows me to use my space for projects, much better use of space for my current needs.
Edit: Played some CSGO online (comp) and also play FPS games. No log that my brain can pick up. After 40 also too slow to notice anyway.

Im using a Wacom Intuos for PS, so mouse, keyboard and tablet, space is a issue. Would be nice to have less cables around.
