    They’re probably doing it so they can continue to get more peripherals from manufacturers and review them to have more content on the website. I ended up just buying the Logitech keyboard mentioned by DMKano since it piqued my interest and I do like their mice. Ironic how a review wasn’t what sold me but a comment ^-^




    There have been reviews here of Logitech keyboards. You could always look those up. That's what an extensive review library can provide.






    While true I could search for the reviews, unsurprisingly I come here primarily to scratch the surface of MMORPG news the same way I go to specialized outlets for reviews such as TheTruthAboutGuns.com.. This is no TheTruthAboutKeyboards.




    I'm sorry to hear that since I've enjoyed your comments on many keyboard reviews. Hardware is a side line of content here - MMOs and RPGs are, of course, the main focus - but I'm proud of the work we do to provide extra content and value to our readers.

    This is the 3rd keyboard review in the last 3 days... one might think you were getting paid to write them.


    I think you underestimate exactly how many keyboards are out there to actually test.  


    Maybe so, I guess I'm just tired of all the peripheral reviews that I can never be sure are legitimate or just paid to be there.



    If something was paid for it will say sponsored in the title on this site.
    Will it also say that if the device is paid for or only if the article is?
    Would you sell out your prospects for a single peripheral? Think about what you're implying and why anyone would do that. 

    It's like driving an expensive sports car or luxury sedan (think gaming rig) and then going down to the red light district to whore yourself out for a pair of sunglasses or accessories because you didn't want to pay for them. Odds are an author already has his or her own preferred keyboard (it's how they make a living) and set of peripherals and aren't looking to replace them.... weekly.

    Yes, getting hardware is neat. It's not a reason to trash your integrity. It's not worth it.

    Wow! Lots of comments here but so many inaccuracies. As I work my way through, I wanted to clarify a few things:

    1) Bloody Gaming makes all their own products. There are 2 main companies that own their manufacturing lines - Bloody and Logitech. The rest of the brands mentioned DO NOT. For the guy saying he knows manufacturing, that's great, but we know the PC peripheral manufacturing secrets and that's what this thread is about.

    2) Our team is compromised of members who have worked or consulted for all the various gaming brands mentioned in this thread. Bloody is the only one actively pushing Optical Switch technology over Mechanical (which has been around since the 80s. If you'd like to talk to us more about it, let us know).

    3) Romer-G switches are not optical switches. They are physical switches with a different design. It's very similar to Topre switches and do not provide the same benefits. The circular design in the middle is JUST for LED shine which has zero beneficial performance to pro-gaming.

    4) MMORPG was not paid NOR did we offer them any money for the keyboard. We asked their team to focus primarily on our innovation with Light Strike optical switch technology and other speed-focused benefits for gamers. When the game is on the line, whoever press their key fastest can end up winning. We've made that with light speed AND per-key stabilization for added precision.

    5) If you buy a Light Strike keyboard and mention you this thread, I'll give you a 6 Year Warranty and personally e-mail you that guarantee. Just because you took the time to read this.

    I personally asked MMORPG to review our keyboard because I've been a die-hard MMO player for over 8 years, running my own WoW guild, and we have team members who have played FF Online and Everquest.

    We all use our own keyboards and designed them for all types of games. You might even want to look at our left-handed 945 on Amazon where we focus around using the left-handed numpad for MMO macros and modifier bindings.

    We'll be here to talk and answer more questions..and more importantly to correct the inaccurate amounts of information being spread on here.

    To clarify - if you buy any 9HUNDRED series (B975, 945, or 930) i'll be able to guarantee you that 6 year warranty for mentioning this thread.

    Damn dunno how to edit :P

    Actually, we own our line, we own our factory, and we manufacture all of our products. Our R&D created the optical switch. Our parent company is called A4Tech and we've been around since 1987.

    We made products for other brands and now we decided to do it ourselves, and do it better. :)

    Not sure why we need to clarify so much, but we can and will in order to help everyone understand our motivations and intentions.

    " Owning a line " doesn't mean you manufacture it.

    Logitech owns there own plant, I was wrong :D

    Thanks for stopping by and joining our community discussion :)



    While correct about having a plant, logitech does not manufacture ANY of your beloved Romer-G series. They only in-house manufacture Mice for the G series line. You could look too Chicony, Lite-On, and around 3 other vendors which I will keep nameless that assemble the "housing" around an Omron Product (Romer-G Switch) . Logitech is Brand + Software when discussing their G - Series keyboards.

    I only use G-series , im not sold on mechanical crap.



    All good to want and choose your own brand. That's what being in competition and in our industry is about - making better products.

    But just to clarify - G-Series uses all mechanical. Romer-G -is- a mechanical switch. It has metal contact points just like Cherry and can suffer from the same pitfalls. Light Strike doesn't have any of those same problems, and it's why we believe its superior.

    Faster (digital, zero latency), waterproof, dustproof, cheetoproof, lasts 100mil, will give you 6 year warranty to back up all of our claims - I mean... we can lead a horse to water but we'll never force it to drink.

    I believe he is referring to an assembly line, not a product line. Owning your factory would mean you own the assembly lines held within it.

    This has been one of my favorite threads of the last couple of weeks. All the typical blah blah blah was being spewed forth, and then someone came in and slammed the door of truth in their faces. Amazing how the tone changed from someone standing on their soapbox shouting how they are right and now it's that old crazy guy mumbling something under his breath just loud enough to let everyone know he used to have an opinion.
