I think for the price, the 2 year warranty and the fact it has cherry MX switches, it's an amazing deal. Free delivery as well!

What! No way. Cracking deal for any mechanical keyboard with decent warranty.
#2
Great price, sorely tempted. Standard bottom row and no frills make this very attractive!
#3
Very tempting. Is it UK layout? Can't find the info.
#4
From the pics it looks like US layout.

The model number suggests it's UK layout.

Thank god it has not got blue mx switches because then I'd have yet another mechanical keyboard.

Cherry Red keys are pretty horrible guys, imo. Feels weird as there's no click or feeling at all when you depress the key. Browns ftw

Totally disagree. Love how smooth and light reds are.

Everybody has their own preference. You can't just blanket claim one type of switch is bad.

Try them out for yourselves ;)

It's actually really hard to explain other than saying just try it...

I'd be tempted to argue that he shouldn't. Buying keyboards is a lot cheaper if you are blissfully unaware... :D

Ergonomics, which by nature are hard to convey in writing.

I'm sure you've used some cheapo £4.99 'Trust' branded mouse at a friends house at some point, and then used a much nicer Logitech or Razer later on. The same concept applies to keyboards.

There is no 'bad' switch, or 'switch X = Y purpose' - you need to try them and see which one you prefer. Same goes for the shape of the mouse you hold :3

Fantastic price, prefer browns myself, which is lucky else I'd have bought a keyboard I don't need!
#21
R.E. which mechanical switch people prefer, is there any way/shop/place/drug dealer that will give us a chance to compare different switches without buying five different keyboards on Amazon and sending four back? Or do I need five friends with different keyboards? Better make some friends...sigh

I'd love to know this too. My local PC world have nothing but a few boxed units so no way to try... Only other retailer near me is novatech but I doubt they have all types on display either.

When you start typing, you wish you had a novel in your head you had to hack out over a weekend.

most cheap keyboards have a plastic top and a rubbery conductive pad which makes contact with a zig-zag pattern on a printed circuit board. the keyboard wears unevenly, and so you find some keys have to be harder than others, sometimes you get bounce/repeats, and some might stop working. Usually, you chuck it away out of rage before then.

a mechanical switch keyboard has a much longer life, and the feel of the switches is consistent, different models require different pressures.

Same. I have a brown at home. I've never tried the red but I imagine even it is too loud to type on in an office.

I too dislike reds, clears ftw.

Any good independent computer shop will allow this, mine for example is http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/ in Ayr.

Wanted a wrist rest for comfort and Leds cause I play at night mostly. I like the media keys as well, my last keyboard (cm quickfire rapid) was a standard one like the k83 so I wanted to try something with some extras.
