Discussion on: What is the best mechanical keyboard out there?

I have had the Corsair K60 with Cherry MX Red keys for many years now, and never had a problem with it. It's also good for self-defense, so a win-win =) Only thing to keep in mind is that this is a very loud keyboard, so it might be annoying in an open office.

The wrist pad is fantastic while playing, and it's detachable so it doesn't bug you while you code. The red WASD keys are also switchable for normal black keys.

I also have a mechanical Razer Blackwidow, and it doesn't come close. The Blackwidow was pretty much unusable by the six-month mark, with keys not moving as smoothly as they should... and it was never so good to begin with. It always felt more like a toy TBH.
