Not clear what brand or color the switches are.

I don't think it is a mechanical switch keyboard, if that's what you mean.

Bit pricey for a non mechanical, non-brand keyboard? Even more so given it's meant to have a normal price of £79.99?

Well it it does include a mouse Would I be right in guessing it is a Curry's own brand, like their kenwood apliances, in which case I'd expect an inflated normal price.

It doesn't mention being mechanical in the description, nor on its box if you google images of it, surely it would say so if it had real switches?


This other AFX model says it is mechanical and states the type of switches:-

'Coolermaster masterkeys lite L Combo' is a much better deal.
Thanks op!
Not multi colour back light on the keyboard, just orange, but does have different effects.

And it IS mechanical, using Kailh brown switches. Really quite nice to type on, I use it for work. Bargain for this price. Heat added.

It is multi colour; orange, white and blue. It is set by default to stay orange.

I wouldn't recommend as with mine it wasn't long before a key became faulty.

I couldn't find a proper review when I googled this keyboard the last time it was posted, but I did find one or two owner comments that indicated it was a mechanical feel keyboard, rather than a real mechanical one? I've read the MK01 has Kailh brown switches.

HeyItsAdam I got mine bit annoyed that it isn't mechanical but it'll do haha

and from the currys reviews:

Brettthe best Pc guyGood Points+one step below mechanical keyboard good product also from same company that make mechanical keyboards window key lock so you dont press it by mistakeBad Points−no media bar but volume buttons are used via Fn and f1 keys


The backlight does seem to be multicolour though:-

Sorry what?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenwood_Limited



Apparently Dixons store group licenced the use of the Kenwood brand from Delongi, to put on appliances manufactured for Currys by other companies. I don't think Kenwood have ever manufactured Microwaves or dishwashers for example.

No it's NOT mechanical.. nor does it use Kailh brown switches.. Video on youtube shows a guy pulling off key off it's a membrane thing trying to simulate a Cherry switch.
