    Unless you have hands like Ben Grimm, I can't imagine why you'd ever wish for NKRO over 26KRO...

    Too expensive too late and not pretty enough in my humble opinion. Logitech should stock to making really good membrane boards like they do best.

    "Cheery microswitches" Does that mean they are happy switches?

    I get the idea but not at that price, even if I could afford it.

    Regardless of whether I like it or not that price is just to high for a keyboard for me, I won't pay over £40 for a keyboard simply because I do not see the difference when using them between high price and low price keyboards.

    Bah. Sounds like *I* need a new keyboard. I wonder if Logitech is feeling generous... (Fixed, ta!)

    One of these vs a Filco and 50 quid in the pocket.... Think the latter will win every time.

    Hi, just wondering where the £149.99 price comes from as the linked page shows it will be 149.99 usd? Hopefully, Logitech wouldn't make the UK price a straight conversion from dollars.

    Still, even if the UK price is lower then the dollar price, I suspect it will work out more expensive than other mechanical keyboards out there.

    This.

    Logitech need to rethink their prices. I wonder how many they will sell in the first few weeks.

    Laughable price, and it's not even as though it's a good looking board!

    Presume you've never used a mechanical keyboard then?

    I think Ill just stick with my £20 Logitech keyboard, as it works surprisingly well, doesn't cost a stupid amount of money and doesn't make itself look stupid by plastering LEDs and other "gaming" features all over it.

    Logitech products very rarely cost as much in shops as they do on their website, so don't worry about the price tag.

    I'd still argue that if used purely for gaming, a decent non-mech keyboard is as good as a mech. Also, quieter.

    Personally wouldn't be without one because I like the feel and sound, but for the non-typist it's probably a waste of money for most people.

    Nothing more useless than a KB without an LCD readout. Logitech should know better.

    Please list prices in other than boutique currencies. Suggested format € / $ / Any other currency you think relevant. List the newegg price for $ and the German hardware outlet price for Euros, enjoy.
