BW's 2KRO isn't that much of an issue, at least according to GH.

Hmm

To summarize your needs, so you are after…
  1. Mechanical key switches
  2. A gaming keyboard…
  3. … hence, ideally a keyboard with NKRO
  4. Multimedia keys (volume controls etc)
  5. If possible LED backlighting too, but this is an optional requirement

Any preferences with regards to keyswitches?

It can be an issue if you play this game that Moogle and some other guys from Lowyat seems to be playing

Can you buy these keyboards in sls other than the ones that have to be imported?

The xarmor doesn't ship outside of us and peurto Rico and the resellers thar do charge half the price of the keyboard to ship

So with that out of the way, is there a keyboard available in Singapore that fits these requirements? I saw the razer black widow but it keeps getting pushed back.
I think for your case, try the Razer Blackwidow, see it degrade after 1-2 year and hopefully by then realise led lights and multimedia controls aren't everything and that touch typing is the only true geeky way to use a computer. (:

The SteelSeries on the other hand, has, so he might like to look into those. Unless he doesn't like Cherry MX Blacks, then... Duckies would be a viable option for him. But he ought to just help us deprived people buy some G80s back

He wanted to know which ones can be bought in SLS. I only know Filco is sold, not too sure about SS so never post.

Thanks for the replies!

Yes I'm in hong kong now but I'm coming back this week to serve national service this coming Monday. So I'm putting together a rig for my use once I'm there. I'm down to the last few components, the rest have been ordered and sent to my address in Singapore.

And what is this cherry mx red you speak of?
