    This is a horrible list. First, there is absolutely no reason to recommend the Corsair K60. The K65/K70 are available at similar prices and fixes many of the concerns and complaints with the original K60. The Logitech keyboard is fine certainly, but hardly cutting edge in the mechanical keyboard space. The Razer keyboard, although one of the more popular keyboards, is actually quite unpopular among many enthusiasts. Finally, there is no mention of any of CoolerMaster's awesome keyboards, Filcos, Duckys, Roccats, steelseries, etc. What exactly was so impressive about the random 5 boards you mention above that they beat out those quality keyboards? I find it hilarious that your title image is the Ryos MK Pro, and yet it is not listed at all in the article.
