    Steelseries 6gv2, never will have a breaking problem with it as it feels like i can put it through a wall and it come out just as new.

    Hey thats the reason why i no longer have a laptop! but atleast that was because it was on my bed when i feel asleep drunk.. WHY WERE YOU THROWING UP AT YOUR DESK?

    Depends on the amount and the consistency of the spew, I reckon you could get away with a bit of spew on it but if you are throwing up lets say 12 beers (and water if you are being sensible) I think you may have a key or two that stop working.

    Haha big night, I don't even remember I just woke up half clothed in the bath tub at 7am and followed the trail of mess back to my desk. So tragic, I should be put down. Broke my phone too so have to decide what new phone to get. Htc one or galaxy s4?

    I popped a few keys off the keyboard to try to clean it up but haven't tried it to see if it works yet. Dunno if the smell will ever leave it though haha...

    Tactile feedback (clicky) or linear press?
    High or low key resistance?
    Pretty lights?
    Macro keys?

    Phone wise;
    Xperia Z1 so you can retrieve it successfully next time you saok it.

    EDIT: Oh and LG G2 is basically a HTC One with a faster chipset, better camera and better battery but without the aluminium finish and amazing speaker.

    No idea havent used a mech before. I just want something good quality with num pad and media keys but apparently thats a huge ask when it comes to the mech range..

    Linear is more similar to rubber dome keyboards, tactile has a bit of a bump you can feel which happens when the key registers (somewhere around halfway down).

    Key resistance is basically the force it takes to push a key down, won't really make that much diff. Really just personal pref.

    Would suggest Logi G710 if discrete media keys are a must, uses MX Brown switches so it's tactile. Go DSE, they seem to have it at $120 delivered which is really good.
