Guys. How does a mechanical keyboard differ to normal keyboards?



They have switches rather than contacts, like those bathroom pull down light cords - switch on, switch off.

Because you don't press to the very end to register a keypress they are great for light and touch typists.

The switches give a more positive feel - like typing on a real typewriter. They are more responsive and have greater durability. They come in different types of switches blue, red and brown. Blue are the cheapest and loudest. Not good if you are sharing a room as they will annoy the other person. Red and brown are better. Red ones are made to react better - the key gets activated at a different level of the key press, so red will react that little bit faster - ie before you reach the bottom of the key press, blue will be towards the end of the keystroke and brown will be in the middle. So a mechanical keyboard will be an advantage when reactions need to be quick ie in games, and the red ones will allow you to react the fastest

With non-mechanical keyboards the key is registered when contact is made - at the end of the keystroke, so there is more pressure on the fingers.

I buy mechanical keyboards for people who have problems with their fingers and can no longer use standard keyboards.

Exactly what I was going to write! Without that I'd just hate to use this, despite how good it may be in all other respects.

Mechanical Keyboards make more noise... This is why my missus doesn't want me to get one... lol
And I was thinking why they are called mechanical keyboards this morning lol !
I have the smaller version of this, a great keyboard for the money. The keys have a nice action though the blue switches are very noisy. It feels very solid and well put together, weighs a ton. The backlighting is good with some fun effects. The US layout is unfortunate but I just leave it set to UK and remember where the keys ought to be. Easily worth 15 quid.
Hot, bought this one (well, uk layout) for about 30, can't fault it (apart from some annoyances like impossibility of changing leds color).

You definitely don't want this one then, look for one with brown or red switches. Brown for office, red for gaming.

Is there a brightness control for the LED's? Not a fan of the really bright variety, but would'nt mind if i'm able to dim them down a bit.
Looks good, bought for my son who has a talent for spilling drink on anything near

No, on or off with a selection of patterns and effects. Each row has a different colour which is fixed.
Anyone know if this is good for N-Key Rollover?
Great keyboard, I've got the UK layout non-rgb and it's fantastic.

However, the fact this has a US layout completely changes things, I could get used to the small enter button, but the position of the @ symbol, and the £ symbol issue just ruins it, as a heavy user this is a deal breaker I'm afraid.
It's actually £14.88 with the 52% off voucher..
Need to make them wireless

Mathematically Yes but still checked out at £14.99 for me.

Thanks OP, voted hot. Not tried clicky clacky blues so picked up as a secondary KB

Where do I find the voucher?!
Will get this as a backup. Current backup is a Microsoft keyboard but would love a mechanical keyboard as that is what I'm used to and going back to an older organisation feels strange. Looks small so good for travel. Definitely worth the price
Got one thanks, have some heat
Sold out
I had a cheapie HAVIT blue switch (Outemu) keyboard and ended up binning it, even though I got it for a bargain price from Amazon Warehouse amazon.co.uk/gp/…5KP keys smudged, it started to "stutter" - yes I cleaned underneath (my review, under my mum's Amazon Prime account). I hated how loud the Blues are, but that's subjective.

Smudged keys are my biggest problem with keyboards. I'm currently using a Q-PAD MK-90 (Red Kailh switches - clone of the X Armor U9 RGB and Max Keyboard Nighthawk) - two and a bit months in, going well so far - fingers crossed hotukdeals.com/dea…129

You're right, I was thinking of Mac keyboards, should have gone for the pound symbol.

Any better than the Logitech G15v2 I'm still using? Ancient keyboard but still going strong so never had a need to replace it.
I got my son one of these (uk layout tho) and its an awesome board.
If you can put up with the us layout thats a lot of keyboard for the money.
Bought this keyboard a while back for over £20 very happy with it. Very clicky and very colourful
Sold out now?
I'm still using a mechanical keyboard I bought in 1998. It's been used for 8 hours a day 5 days a week since then. Probably could do with a clean but it's still going strong and hopefully will for another 20 years.
Good find, appears to be sold out now, alas.
