Are mechanical keyboards worth it? ๐Ÿค”

On boxing day in 2015, I got the Corsair K70 RGB Cherry MX Keys Mechanical Keyboard (not actual link) and I was so excited.


It was also the same year I graduated from Huddersfield university ๐ŸŽ“


4 years later, I treated myself to a second Corsair keyboard as the first was unable to make comeback from a bad coffee spill (oh so typical) โ˜•๐Ÿ’€

Next up - introducing the costly frosty ๐Ÿ’ฐโ›„ Corsair K70 RGB MK.2 SE Mechanical USB Gaming Keyboard (actual link). It has Cherry MX keys, a detachable palm rest and dedicated volume scroll.



I always experienced intermittent issues with frosty โ›„ where at times it would just stop working - never figured out why but have kept it. The cable is also pretty bulky with two USBs to connect - not ideal.


My current (and favourite so far) is the Ducky One2 SF 65% RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (not actual link) and I particularly love the almost-secret alt keys - it's different. The USB Type-C cable is detachable and keys are Cherry MX.


P.S. I sprayed the keyboard via air can shortly before the image below was taken, will need a proper clean soon ๐Ÿงน


Howeverโ€ฆ


Mechanical keyboards are usually expensive, often loud and awkward for portability (of course more so the big 'uns).


I spend a lot of quality time on a daily basis with ducky ๐Ÿฆ†


It's genuinely improved my productivity levels and typing skills.


Whilst they last longer than your average Joe regular keyboard - from my experience, I appreciate the visual colours and sound the keys produce when pressed.


Future wise, I recon I'll stick with the smaller mechanical keyboards - desk space usage is good too.


Do you find value in using a mechanical keyboard? โœจ
