Mechanical keyboards register commands before they are pushed all the way down so they are generally faster and more responsive. It's a moot point for most people but when you are playing video games where you are tapping buttons all the time you should notice it. Mice are more about precision and accuracy and overall comfort.
yeah i was considering that one actually. can you comment on its size relative to others?
only thing thats nice about getting an above standard keyboard is being able to hit multiple buttons at the same time. pretty sure a standard keyboard will register 4 keys per "zone" at a time, i believe 1/3 of the keyboard is a zone. others are 6+. not something you really have a problem with, but several times before i had noted additional keys didnt respond
never felt like spending $200 for a nice mechanical tho. something red or oak in the name
it's a pretty large mouse. definitely the biggest that i've used in a while. i have relatively small hands so it fills it up pretty well. i like it a lot though. it never skips or lags even occasionally- which most of the other mice i've owned have done from time to time. i definitely recommend it.
