Always worth paying more for another type of switch. Blue are great if you're deaf, work in a loud office or simply enjoy annoying others.

Absolute bargain, it's so difficult to get TKL keyboards especially UK layouts so cheap. I just spent 80 pounds on something very similar with gaming features for over 10 simultaneous keypresses etc.
Hasn't it been this price for a while? is it worth paying a little more for red switches?

If the colours are corrosponding to Cherry MX switches then they'll feel a lot different between the blue and red.

Do you have more than 10 fingers? Interesting.

They say it's 10 keys, but because of the way the keyboard matrix works, it's a maximum of ten spread across the whole keyboard, in reality if you're doing a standard WSAD configuration and 1 or 2 more keys for jump and run for example, then you've already maxed it out, so you'll have trouble with switching weapons or throwing a granade, so it will often stop one of your other keys working, sometimes you'll notice and blame the game, or server, other times it will be inconsequential.
Almost worth the price for the set of UK ISO doubleshot keycaps alone.

Do Aukey do this with red switches?

Do Aukey do this with red switches?


I don't think so.
I'm after a cheap TKL keyboard that isn't noisy, but it seems that ALL the <£50 TKL keyboards use blue switches - I don't have my co-workers enough to buy a blue-switch keyboard unfortunately

I would even be happy with an old HP Mini/Compact keyboard that isn't mechanical, just need TKL in the office!

You can get rubber washers that significantly reduce the noise of these mechanical keyboards, could do the entire keyboard for about 2 quid!
Good price this!
Lahn: You can pick up a Qisan better known as a Magicforce 68 key, which is strictly smaller than TKL with brown switches. They are £30 on Amazon. Less noisy than a blue.

Can you post a link to these rubber washers? Thanks

thanks. Would these dampener do much for the noise? Could you switch out the blues for brown switches?

It will dampen by ensuring the keycaps are buffered by the rubber when they are pressed.

If the sound is an internal click point then it cannot help that, but most of the sound should be the keycaps so this should help. At around a pound it's not much of a punt ...

Of course you can pay more and get fancier ones, but I got these cheap ones and they are great.

I got the mini keyboard with brown switches which was posted a couple of weeks age.
Love it , so much nicer to type on, looks the business as well
Are they cherry mx?
Isn't this just its normal price? Good to get a mech tenkeyless for this price and it's supposed to be decent but it's been £19 before according to camelcamelcamel

Tempting price! Can anyone recommend a backlit mechanical keyboard for comparable money please?

Don't be ridiculous, you can make a shortcut for that. It's the letters in the password that wear out.

Apparently.

Thats not what happened to me, however looks like that didn't work out for you.
Bought the same keyboard last year. It was a really good board, couldn't fault it. I upgraded to a K65 with red MX switches, but I genuinely preferred the blue switches in the auckey board. They were louder, but felt a lot more tactile for typing and gaming.
good keyboard, heat added.
I will add however a few months back the RGB version was going for £21.

Thanks for the suggestion. I wish I could make do with a 60% keyboard, but I use my function keys A LOT (I develop in Visual Studio). I really do need a 80%/TKL one =(
Link to the one you talk about I guess
amazon.co.uk/dp/…HQG

Even with o-rings, I fear mechanicals are too noisy for me... just yesterday I ordered a tester kit and some extra switches to try them all out, need to order some 2mm and 4mm o-rings to try that out too.
My guess without having tried any of them, is cherry mx red/brown/black silents with 2mm o-rings will be the most quiet, but will I actually like it? trying a tester to start with

I tried doubling up on o rings and it prevented the switch making contact... Just something that may or not affect you if doubling up.

Well I was going for " If 1 is good then 2 must be even better!"

Unfortunately doesn't work in this situation or with medications!
