Ah! My fml got posted and I had to make an account to elaborate lol. Ok so it's actually for my stepdad who has been in my life for the last 8 years and has done more for me than my biological father ever has. He's super into WoW and the keyboard in question IS a Merc Stealth and there is literally no substitute because the design is so unique.

I think a donation towards a gaming keyboard would be a good gesture. I game but I'd be happy to use a £12 USB keyboard personally. Maybe I'm not as hardcore as your father.

Right, I forgot, parents aren't allowed to have hobbies or do anything fun. Ever. Idiot.

The Razer Ornata Chroma is the one my husband and I have. It's like $135 at best buy. Look it up and have your mom ask if he likes it. It has a detachable armrest and you can set up what color the keys change. It's very nice.

What type of keyboard are you looking at, there are really good ones like a 130 at most...

OP, your mom must think that you have a high-paying job in order to afford that $350 all on your.... Why doesn't SHE pay for it all? Or at least 75%? Else draw or print out a (on-line) pix of said kb! lol

Keyboards are a bitch. I just paid $110 for a discontinued Logitech because the keys are exactly where I need them and it's got all the features I want. Sure I could have gotten something cheaper, but it was my money.

It is rather expensive so eitheer team up with someone (your mother?) to buy it or get something else entirely. I see many comments saying that you can get a good keyboard for around 130$, and they're correct, but your dad probably already has a keyboard he's satisfied with and only wants that specific keyboard rather than just a general upgrade. I'm basing this on the assumption that he is a dedicated gamer but also have a decent job, since the Merc Stealth is even considered (he likely knows what it costs).

I used to have a Merc Stealth and i LOVED that thing, but Steelseries stopped supporting it in 2013, so the drivers won't work at all. Unless your stepdad has an old computer, don't bother. And unfortunately there's nothing like it! I'm currently rocking a Razer Anansi & a Razer Nostromo. Maybe try getting him a Razer gaming pad instead (the only other gaming pads are made by Logitech [and the ergonomics is weird according to reviews] and a third part manufacturer whose name I don't remember but seemed like cheap chinese knockoff stuff).
