I would have thought that if you were going to change your preference, it would have been after at least several weeks of use.
That's what I was expecting too, but it didn't work out that way. I liked the red keyswitches a lot more than what I had been using before, but I already like the blue keyswitches a lot more than the reds. I'm not typing quite as fast with them as with the reds, but my error rate is much lower so on balance I definitely get more work done with the blue switches.
I'll update this thread if anything changes, but at the moment I think this is a done deal. I'm going to be swapping systems around so that the systems where I do the most typing have the keyboards with blue switches, and will probably pick up a similar KB for the office.
Other notes :
The Corsair K65 also has a detachable USB cable, and nicely protects it by routing it through a small channel then out the back.
Moving the switch on the back of the K65 to the "8" position (it came set to 1, with choices of 1/2/4/8) makes the caps lock light work, but then the scroll lock light flashes constantly. Need to try the Razer KB on Linux (I plugged it into the Windows box yesterday) to check the caps lock / scroll lock lights there.
I still prefer the looks of the K65 over the Razer and CM Storm, but at the moment I would take even an ugly keyboard with blue switches over a nice looking keyboard with red switches, even though the red switches are a huge improvement over run-of-the-mill keyboards.
OK, final update. I swapped the Razer and Corsair keyboards, putting the Razer on my primary Linux box (Trinity) and the Corsair was on my old Win 7 admin box (the one that Q will never forgive me for, with an AMD CPU and NVidia IGP).
After booting up the Windows box the caps lock and scroll lock lights now work on the Corsair with the switch in the stock "1" position. Windows installed a PNP driver for "USB input device" and told me to reboot, but behavior seemed the same before and after the driver update.
The Razer (on a Ubuntu 13.10 system) now behaves similarly to the CM Storm on the test box (also Ubuntu 13.10 but KV instead of TN)-- caps lock light works fine, scroll lock light does not work. No problem.
I'm still a bit surprised how fast my fingers want to type on the Corsair (red switches) but error rate is definitely much higher as well. It's very weird.
I had not heard of Revoltec, but looks like they make some really nice products. The "lightboard" might even make me rethink my position about putting lights in keyboards
The picture of the Chocolate keyboard makes me think the key travel would be really short -- but sounds like that's not a problem.
One more comment on the compact keyboards I just picked up -- just realized that the caps lock key lights up when it's pressed (a bright light in the key itself, not a tiny light in the opposite corner of the keyboard), which IMO is a really great feature. Slight preference for the Razer again, since the "caps lk" letters light up rather than just a light in the front of the key, but both are better than having the light over where you don't look.
Revoltec is actually a small company, just this model is really spot-hitting.
I have a mouse from them, and unlike K107, it has an older longer dongle, that was never perfect and seems to start dying out completely when it comes to range now.
The K107 on the other side is unaffected, new small dongle, about 10 meters range, dongle direction/placement plays no role.
The key travel is about 0.5 cm, however the relatively high resistance and notebook-style key fixation (four monting points under each key) result in pretty mechanical feel.
One also can't type silently on that keyboard. Found technology definition for it - its a ultra light(300 gr incl batteries) RP wirelesslaptop-sizedchicklet keyboard with scissor technology(large scissor joint version).
