Thoughts on the TactX keyboard? I currently have a Black Widow Ultimate, I love mechanical keyboards, but my girlfriend says it's too loud. I also like to idea of being able to change the colors of the keys.

I ordered an X51 and got a free Media keyboard, and if the Tactx feels the same I won't bother getting the TactX. But if it is substantially better, I want it.

So I guess I'm looking for comparisons of the TactX, Media, and other non AW keyboards for FPS gaming. Thanks.

Hey Tommy, I would totally take you up on that but I don't have Paypal (long story). I am interested but I don't know how I would get you the money, unless you happen to live near Seattle!

And the Media keyboard is not back lit, but I'm wondering if it feels similar for the TactX.

I believe the tactx has a longer key stroke, which IMO gives better feedback. I thinking missing out on the keyboard AlienFX would be the big problem for me.

Well, if you decided you want my TactX KB, I could always except a USPS Money Order. Just let me know. :)

The TactX keyboard is flawless in my opinion, very nice edges and clean design. I play all types of games and it holds up to FPS's and MMO's like WoW amazingly well.

Media Keyboard is just a cheap piece of plastic that you get for free. Alienware TactX keyboard cost more so its better quality and it lights up too! One other keyboard I can recommend you is Corsairs K60 for FPS :)
