Old school….? I fucking hope so.

I’ve placed my order for that Logitech (G613) keyboard at Box.

It is a bit of a splurge – especially in these times. But here’s 2 main things I’m really hoping for with this one.

The first is NO more rubbing off of key letters. I ADORE my Logitech K350 – it is the ultimate in comfort. But the cold hard fact is, the lettering on the keys will ALWAYS wear off – no matter how carefully I treat this keyboard (and I do). The A key is already blank – and this is my second purchase of this keyboard.

The other is the old school feel. There’s been various opinions on Logitech’s “Romer G” keys and how they feel versus Cherry MX Red. Some say the Romer G is softer. Others say they can’t tell much difference between the Romer G and Cherry Brown. But I’m pretty much stuffed for choice because I DO still use a number pad quite often, and the other wireless keyboards don’t have it. And ALL of the other mechanical keyboards with the numerical pads were wired, and why the hell go backwards with a keyboard??? Wireless has proved itself in gaming to me for several solid years now – there is absolutely no perceivable difference in reaction times versus wired. I’m less convinced about mice, however, and am sticking with wired there for a good while yet (Roccat Kone XTD in case you were wondering).

If I can get the feel back in a keyboard that I used to have in 1996……phew…..I’m telling you, I will be beyond happy, I’ll have hit my own nirvana! I know it will take some getting used to – the straight up layout, no swishy bits, no sublime rise and fall of the board.

But I’m happy to forgo ALL that jazz, just to feel the excitement and hear the clackety clack again. And IF those keys are etched out lit spaces, rather than stuck on transfers, this WILL be the last keyboard I’ll buy for the foreseeable future.

I'm a gamer. I'm a coaster. I am happy in general. We're all born by chance and we're all gonna die. That makes me no better or worse than you. Get over that fact and we'll probably get along. I comment on the Google news feed a lot. Oh, and I swear quite a lot.
