Seems like a good deal for a well reviewed mechanical keyboard. The price is for both the cherry Red and cherry Blue switch versions. Sold by Amazon.

Lowest price as well according to camel camel: uk.camelcamelcamel.com/Cor…wse

This is my first deal post and I hope it helps someone.

Very hot. Got the Brown switches for 89.99 and even that was a good deal.

Lovely keyboard.

This has been the price everywhere else. I seen this on other sites for £70 a few months back.

No RGB folks still a good keyboard but seriously.. Get the RGB!!

Have to admit guys I thought it would be a gimmick but I f*kin live the RGB lights. You can download loads of awesome custom patterns and it looks really nice.

Also, get brown keys. I bought a Cherry MX Red keyboard and sent it back. It's pretty horrible to type on, and let's face it you'll type on it a lot. I really don't see the point in just having squishy keys with no feedback.

The question of which Cherry switches are the best is a tough one but I think there are so many topics on the internet about this that it's not difficult to make a choice. Sure it's best to test different switches in person (which you should definitely do if you live near a decent computer store), but in general brown Cherry switches are the quietest but also offer the least feedback. Blue ones are the loudest and have the most 'clicky' feel when pressed. And red ones are somewhere in between, being louder than browns and quieter than blues.

Of course that's the theory and you should do a bit more research before spending £80 on a keyboard. Personally I've never had a problem using brown and red switches, but the blue ones are just too loud without the headphones on.

I have one with blue LEDs and red switches. The reds are not my favourite for typing, and I hope that the LEDs don't die like most of mine have (can't really complain as it was free). This is cheap for a good keyboard, but I would go for the brown switches.
