Mechanical gaming & typing keyboard suggestion?

Hey guys in the market for a new mechanical keyboard, looking to replace my G15. My budget is around ₹ 8000.
Gaming is first priority, however the typing experience should be brilliant.

So far I have short-listed two,
Logitech G710
CM Storm QuickFire TK. CM is my choice but lack of palm rest might be a deal breaker, as it will be used for prolonged gaming periods.

What I basically need:
- Back-light is a must
- Mechanical
- As compact as possible (those G keys or LCD are not needed)
- Key markings should be bold and clear
- Build quality should be great.

TIA.

Brands I will never buy : Corsair, Razer

Don't like them, don't like the hype.
My personal choice would be Ryos MK, but it's slightly out of my budget :(

pretty irrational way of thinking considering Razer Black Widow is a pretty good KB. But whatever, it's your money. :/

Anyway, where are the gamers?
Eyeing the QuickFire Pro or TK, but darn no wrist rest :|

I am using 2014 Razer BlackWidow Ultimate with Razer Green keys. Its somewhere near Cherry MX red with cherry blue's click.

There's one from Thermaltake, though to be honest I am not sure how good that is, but it comes with a 5 year warranty (no wrist rest). Check out CM Storm trigger.

main issue that i find with keyboards like Trigger and Razer is that macro keys are awfully close to CTRL/ Caps Lock, etc. I've heard of people hitting M5 rather than CTRL, even after spending a lot of time with it. The only thing I don't like TK is the annoying part where you switch certain keystrokes with Numpad area.

Exactly. And believe me I almost clicked on buy now and then was even proceeding to pay from Flipkart, then at last moment refrained from doing so, cause I just remembered at the last moment that it's not a full size (I didn't need G keys, but that doesn't mean I don't need those arrow keys!) keyboard and that the arrow keys are merged with the numpad. Why would someone even think of making something like that is beyond me :| The culprit was Flipkart's wrong product image, should report immediately!
Anyway, ordering the QuickFire Ultimate. It is a full size keyboard, and I like it overall. But I don't understand, Flipkart priced it at ₹ 9539, but when I hit on that combo thingy, which is with that Dell Optical mouse, the price is ₹ 7846. What the hell? :!:

I recommend buying from a store. Few marketing managers from certain companies have asked not to quote prices from Flipkart, stating that they quote prices significantly higher than actual pricing, even at times higher quote than MRP. Check out at ITDepot instead.
