Sorry if I necro this mofo... ;-D Only wanted to give an update:
Since this thread and buying the MX red board I've pretty much used nothing else, I love it! Typing, FPS, RTS, perfect for one and all! So much, that I'm thinking about buying a small form factor one or something similar.
If you're thinking about pulling the trigger on a red, don't hesitate!
PS: I wanted to buy a red KBC poker, but I can't seem to find it anymore... Anybody know where I can get one or one very similar to it? Cheers guys!
