Lowest it's ever been according to 3xCamel. Same price on CCL if you want to buy there.

Recently purchased a Fnatic Ministreak but amn't happy with it, so have this on the way.

Please note that TKL = Tenkeyless, i.e. it's missing the numpad and more compact than normal.

This is an excellent keyboard (I have it) that is usually around £100-120, why is this -20 degrees? From amazon too so any issues you have an easy return.

Voted hot from me khamito.
Great price for this - brings it in line with other decent 10 keyless keyboards. I have one and it's very high quality, and the software gives you lots of customiseation options.
I have this keyboard and really love it for gaming and typing. Get up to some real speeds! Mine was a refurb from CCL for £66 but it hasn't been any issue at all. The usb port on the back of the keyboard is really handy for charging my phone while I'm at the pc as well.
Got a Steelseries Apex 750 in the office (everyone loves me) and it registers keys a bit too aggressively; practically blow on the keyboard and it will type. What's the travel on these before it registers?
@OP I have the FNatic MiniStreak too - it's my first mech board, so nothing to compare it to.
What didn't you like?

It's been posted 4 times already. Probably that's why

The Ctrl and Shift key feel mushier than the rest, the lighting and key height makes me think it's designed for using it at lap height. The space bar and f5-f8 keys have much brighter LEDs.

The wrist rest is great but I'm not getting on with the cherry MX red silents in general either - it's been a week and I still find them only ok. It's my first mechanical too and I miss my Sidewinder X4.

@DemetriusDoomsCrasto I can't find it being ever posted before this cheap. I'm personally not a fan of seeing the same deal posted several times a year as the price yoyos up and down.

I think people are probably confusing it with the K68 which is the same price. Posted 3 days ago. Worth looking at. hotukdeals.com/dea…465
If you're looking for a TKL keyboard (small desk, or just better ergonomics) you aren't looking for a full sized keyboard. And vice versa, when I did a lot of excel work at home I wouldn't have dreamed of going TKL.
I don't seem to having much luck with recent Amazon orders!

Mine arrived Sunday but just go to try it today. There a scratch on the front, the F3 key was lose in the box (and compared to other keys, is far too easy to remove - the F4 key for example is fixed, the F3 just pops back off without any force), the ENTER key was raised a few mm (easily pushed down) and a few other small white marks - like poor finishing etc. It was sealed so could only have been brand new but smacks of being a Warehouse item, what with the mark - no way could this have been missed by QC... Replacement coming tomorrow...
@Ciderspace666 mine is waiting for me at home, I'll let you know how I get on!

I really hope its ok for you and Ive just been unlucky - again! My first mechanical keyboard too - not sure I'm 100% into it as yet as it feels totally different to my Microsoft keyboard.... time will tell

Second one arrived, it’s much better (scratch free, all keys in place) but still some finishing issues, I’m really surprised. Am thinking about returning this one but what to get instead? Are Logitech mechanicals any good?
Edited by: "Ciderspace666" 1st Oct
Mine is fine, the right shift+enter key is a bit squealy but that seems to a normal thing with them! Lighting is consistent (but not as good as ministreak) and it's a lot louder but much more pleasant to use.

Icue is ok and i've got it setup to my liking.

Gad you got yours ok.... I am returning mine now. Going to try the K95 instead. Fingers crossed again
K95 Platinum here and I must say it’s a beauty! No damage, no scuffs and working great. Even better, I managed to get it for just £89 after various Amazon complaints lead to promotional credit
