Nice price for this, however I had to return 2 of these due to breakdown within a couple of weeks. replaced them with a Velocifire vM90 with black switch's. I have now been happily using for 6 months...

This must have just dropped, I saw a refurbed one for the same price this morning before I spotted Ebuyers. Cashback with Ebuyer though.

While Cherry Reds are great for first/third person shooters, they lack the tactile feedback(no bump) for anything else. So, do yourself a favour, don't buy Cherry Reds. Get Cherry Browns instead if you want a gaming keyboard. Then it would be more useable in other games and for productivity work like writing messages on HUKD.

Many differing opinions on this, it's all personal preference. I would suggest firing over to Maplin as they have some gaming keyboards on display and trying them out yourself. Personally, I was debating between Red, Black and Brown switches as they are the most common gaming switches and each have their pros and cons.

I finally took the plunge and got a Corsair k70 rapidfire from amazon warehouse for £89. Wow its so awesome. Its very touch sesnitive and can be loud but i think you have to train yourself to touch type

its been a great access in pubg too! I thinkj i should have held off this one as its brand new but hey, good find OP!

Another massive cherry reds fan and a great price for this keyboard.

Surprisingly I like writing with my MX reds, I prefer blues but I can't exactly be bothered to have 2 expensive mechanical keyboards sitting around but it's all personal preference
