Ok, so I took the “plunge”, so to speak, regarding a mechanical keyboard. More or less, I settled on a Cherry-black switch equivalent by Bestek. This here is the one I bought.
While possibly not the best quality, it does work quite suitably. The black keys aren’t particularly noisy, either, so it’s great for an office environment, which is where I use it at. I likely will buy another one for the home-office too.
It’s not an RGB backlight, though. Each row has it’s own color, which is not changeable. However, there’s a few modes for lighting, although I only use the solid backlight while working. When I’m gone for the night, I use the “ramp up” lighting mode. It just looks pretty cool.
I can tell, however, my hands don’t get tired nearly as quickly from typing anymore, so I’ve got that going for me. The unit I bought comes in blue switches too, which many typists prefer. Same price too boot. I’d definitely recommend if you need a backlit mechanical keyboard. It’s only $30.
