I am looking for recommendations regarding mechanical keyboards, cherry brown or red switches or something from the Logitech line.

Logitech has that new wireless one coming out in a few days. G613 I believe its called. They use romer-g key switches on it, like cherry browns I've heard. First wireless mechanical keyboard.

Had an ASUS Strix, and it was all right, but you had to watch where you were putting your fingers, it was really easy to to miss the WASD keys.  Also, it started to get a repetitive W key and the keyboard was a bit clattery.  The Corsair Strafe keyboard I have now is much better, feels more solid, and is more intuitive to actually use.  However, the lighting system isn't very intuitive to set up, you'll need to refer to the 'Net, and they don't actually tell you that if you plug the main keyboard USB connector into a USB3 port, then there's no need to plug in the "pass-through" connector for the integrated USB socket in the keyboard.  If you do, then the keyboard doesn't actually work.

If you start looking at other brands, I recommend the Corsair K70 Rapidfire. I caught it on sale.

i have been eyeballing Logitech G910 Orion Spark wired keyboard and the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum wired/wireless mouse. i like the specs. on both compared to Logitech's other products and their competitors. also they are both on sale right now. many of the ESports competitors use this combination (in case you use that as a comparative standard).

Browns and Reds are both good for gaming, IMO.  As for specific keyboards, one make/model over another doesn't really matter all that much if you've narrowed it down that much.  I currently use a Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro S but that's mainly because I wanted a ten keyless keyboard.  I wouldn't bother with Logitech's G series keyboards because I think they're overpriced and the extra macro keys are worthless, IMO.

I just use a cheap $15 Logitech keyboard and a cheap mouse both wired.  Extra buttons get in the way.  I like wired controllers. No fuse, no batteries and cheaper.

I use a cheap logitech kb120 keyboard and its fine for everything. Keys are still solid and have just enough resistance to let you know you are clicking them.

I totally agree. My Azio is wired. But I do know some people who do play with wireless keyboard and mouse. So I just had to ask.

I went with the Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum because it was 1/2 off and the keys are not as noisy. I am replacing a 2009 Alienware keyboard so the transition should be smoother because of similar key strokes from what I read and I will be using it to type up letter (general purpose). Might as well try it out as I have the Logitech mouse & headphones, plus the software is good. 

 

Thanks people.

I have the Razor Black Widow and I love it.  I used a cheap Dell wireless for a long time but, my Daughter got this for me for my birthday.  I like that I can customize the keys for different games and apps.  I have WoT set up so only the keys I need are lit up, so in the dark I don't have to hunt for what I need.

Initial impression of the Logitech G810:

 

It is a heavy keyboard with good grips so it won't be sliding around like my old Alienware (which I don't think was mechanical, made in 2009). Plugged it in but I had to manually go the company's site and download the software, the help menu is rather deficient but Google was good enough. I set it up so the default is a nice blue and when World of Tanks launches only the appropriate keys lite up. I have these keys color coded in groups  for movement, communication, siege, reload and so on. The keys are on the quiet side and have a soft feel, they have a good concave for the fingertips to rest in (helps prevent your hands from accidently going out of alignment). 

 

Best part is that Amazon had a sale on it for $99.

I still miss my very first keyboard, the one on my office pc, an IBM. That was the only keyboard I have ever used that felt solid, the keys with a nice reassuring click to them. Now  I have a laptop as my primary, one dolled up for gaming. A touch of the button brings up a variety of color to the keys, very entertaining.

I still have my old ibm 101 key and it weighs a ton as its made of metal even the keys. Alas it's not compatible with new computers even with a usb adapter. Just locks up the boot screen and makes the bios beep.
