      steer clear of cherry blue switches they are just far too loud. Cherry red or brown are the best mix for general typing and gaming.

      Ducky make the best. Das Keyboard are good too. I have a corsair and they are really good (except when you spill tea on them).

      Other than that just go with what features you like. Macro keys... Maybe you want custom colours... the RGB versions are pretty cool. If you don't care about that shit, then you can just go with something simple.

      I have heard a lot of good things about Corsair keyboards, they seem to be very popular and have a lot of positive reviews to back up that popularity. I do recommend getting cherry reds, I tried them at a friends place and they felt so much more responsive and comfortable than the cherry blues I have in my keyboard
