After a mysterious Dota 2 accident my current keyboard will most likely never see the light of day again, I'm hoping to order a new one relatively soon so any suggestions would be nice.

Grab a IBM model M.

Although it's probably indestructible, I value my eardrums.

Using a Logitech G19s, after years of using the G15.

Very nice and plenty of macro keys if I ever get around to setting them. Big-ish keys and spread out arrangement, built-in usb, media buttons and volume control etc.

Pretty colours too, plus built-in LCD screen which can display video although that's retarded if you have an actual computer screen, which you will. Still, displays some nice info and I've gotten accustomed to seeing it, dunno what I'll ever do without it.

Wish I could try them out before purchasing. The ones I want are never cheap.

Clicky clack is the best.

Oh, and it's not just about indestructibility. The model m is a joy to type on. I've gotten to use one a few times, and I sincerely want one.

I was wondering if anyone knows which mx keys are the best. Right now I'm looking at black vs red switches. My original key board broke and i'm using my old razer anasi.

I believe red are normally considered to be the best, but I could be wrong.
