Looking for best mechanical keyboard with cool lighting

by whyrock / April 17, 2011 9:01 AM PDT

I'm a big Tron nerd so was really looking at the Tron keyboard by Razer, but it appears to be a terrible keyboard unless you only want to look at it. Bummer.

I got to thinking though I really do need a new keyboard. I'm not an expert, but I believe I need a mechanical keyboard. I see a lot of discussion about "cherry" and "switches". I can type pretty fast and am beginning to see how inefficient my old Microsoft keyboard is and how hard I have to press to type.

I'm looking for effortless and responsive typing. I do a ton of typing and want high end all around great typing. That being said I want it to look outstanding as well. Cool lighting is much preferred.

So far the only keyboard I have found online to be mechanical and have neat lighting is the Black Widow Ultimate, but again I am not an expert and can use any and all advice you all have on keyboards.

Please let me know what is out there that would be good for me. I appreciate the help!

Although they are really designed with gaming in mind, I really like the Logitech G series of keyboards. There is a G15, G11 and some new ones. I have the G11.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
