So I've been entrenched with RGB keyboard meme gimmick, I like being able to choose whatever color single backlight I want or use applications to control the effects for things like an audio visualizer to add to ambient lighting when I'm just chilling out to some music.
Currently I'm using a Razer Blackwidow X TE Chroma, and I love the software lighting controls, lighting SDK, and third party program compatibility for the lights, but the switches and caps, though not bad, don't have my hopes up for longevity, though they show they're holding up much better than the Rosewill and older Razer switches.
Corsair boards look terrible and I really despise cherry reds along with the shitty caps for the price (even though they can be changed).
Ducky keyboards have everything but the software control, taking all the appeal out of the lighting.>Budget

Anything clicky, likely blues or non-cherry linear (gateron/ultra-smooth linear)>Layout
Software controlled RGB Meme>Previous/current keyboards
Rosewill thing with blues

Razer Blackwidow X TE chroma (current)
I'm getting a replacement Blackwidow X for reasons that aren't at all important enough to warrant needing a replacement, but because of the new keyboard, I'm probably just going to sell it over use it. Despite what I said about razer's switches and such, I'm debating getting the Blackwidow v2 TE just for the software, program support, but there should be SOMETHING else out there with similar lighting, right?
