Max Keyboard Group Buy Thread #8

Recommended Posts

Group buy #7 is over and I noticed there's a couple guys still wanting to get in on it, so here's group buy #8. Just post below to be included. Again, it's 20% for either the Nighthawk X8/X9 or Durandal G1N/G1NL if we can get 10. Yes, they ship to different addresses, yes they ship worldwide, and yes international warranty is covered. You will have to be able to ship it back to them at your own expense. Also, per previous experiences with the other group buy, the 20% off will cover ANYTHING you buy on the site, so if you add custom LEDs, keycaps and stuff, it will all be 20% off. Full details / restrictions on this at the Max Keyboard website. Max Keyboard Group Buy 20% Discount! | Max Keyboard Blog

Hey is there still room on this list? I can't find much information on the keyboards' date=' does anyone have experience with these keyboards, I can't decide between the Durandal G1NL or NightHawk X9[/quote'] With you, we're at 10 people so yea, there's room. And I cant tell you much based on experience with the actual boards but I have tried out cherry mx red switches (which are in the x9)on the corsair vengeance k60 and they are super light to the touch. So they're good for mashing on but to me, it felt like they'd be terrible for typing since i usually rest my fingers on the keys while type. I have yet to try the browns (which are in the g1nl) but they are supposed to be a good balance between typing/gaming needs

The nighthawk comes with a better wrist rest and one key difference between the two is that the x9 has cherry red switches and the Durandal has cherry brown switches, like the X8. The nighthawk is more of a clean looking keyboard, while like I stated earlier, the Durandal has more of a gamer look and also has a fake plastic brushed aluminium. I personal don't like the looks of the Durandal. In the end, they are both mechanical keyboards with basically the same features.

Cool. OP updated. I'll message Max KB real quick for your codes. Also, got some bad news... got word that they're low on stock with the Nighthawk X8 at the moment and after they're gone, it'll take ~10 weeks for new stock to arrive.

Hopefully there will be enough to go around :) looking forward to my code. Thanks!

I was doing the comparison and the keys were the only difference they really listed so I wanted to make sure there was no surprises. Also can't wait for the code, using a G15 atm and it is a good keyboard but the space bar went after ~5 years so decided to make the switch up to mechanical.

I wish i was quick enough to snag the x8 but had to go with the durandal instead. Ah well' date=' still a nice discount either way. Thanks for doing this once again sam![/quote'] There is the current promotion of nearly 40% off their Durandal keyboard which is better than this group buy deal i guess. So you should be able to snag the Durandal G1NL for around $90 + shipping or the G1N for around $60 + shipping.
