    Been using a Microsoft Comfort Curve 3000 for about 6 months and then it started missing strokes and feel "stuck".

    Then used an Apple Keyboard (yes, on a PC, cause I got it for free), which I liked for a while but got tired of the cramped layout.

    It's time to go mech. I live in Israel so if I buy on Amazon US (there's no Amazon Israel) it's about $33 shipping. Over $75 (without shipping) and you also have to pay tax. So my budget is exactly 74.99, on Amazon or wherever.


    CoolerMaster Rapid A used CoolerMaster Rapid-i Noppoo Choc Mid 87 for just $60 with free shipping. A steal if they actually last. Do they?

    All of them use Cherry MX Blue switches. I don't care about backlight, not enough to go outside my budget anyway.

    Another option is to buy a Corsair K65 locally, but it's got Red switches and I do want the tactile feedback which they're said to lack.
