CHERRY MX BLACKS. Not my favourite, but at least they're not as loud as Cherry MX Blues. I guess for gaming, these are the baws.

56 quid for a keyboard oO that won't improve your aim
If you're considering this keyboard you should be aware that the UK version is not a proper UK layout:

Return/Enter key is oversized;
#~ key has been moved down a row because of this;
Right shift key has been shrunk to make room for #~ (these three issues are because it's a US layout with UK labels);
The `¬¦ and #~ keys are mislabeled (they are swapped around) but you cannot swap them to correct this yourself as the keycaps are different shapes;

Also there is no left Windows key which is either an annoyance or fantastic depending on your preference.

These annoying issues aside it is a great piece of kit, very sturdy and heavy meaning it doesn't move around at all during use.

Heh. You're funny.
Obviously not too much of a serious gamer are you?

You require more than just WASD in games like DOA, Streetfighter, DDR, Starcraft where you press down multiple keys at the same time, which won't register with a standard membrane keyboard due to the way the circuitry is configured.

A mechanical keyboard can last MUCH longer than a rubber dome membrane keyboard. I'm typing here on a Sigma Apple II keyboard from 1998. Have fun replacing your keyboard countless times when I'm still going with my USB-ADB adapter and my NKRO Sigma that has gone through decades. And since my keycaps are laser engraved, I don't have to worry about text fading off when I'm cleaning them.

Yawn. Learn to aim boy
Had a laugh reading these comments. Thanks guys.
Sigh... OP clearly being trolled

The use of the mechanical switch keys is probaby more important for most people than any "gaming features" like multiple key presses registering etc. I think at that price, its probably one of the cheaper keyboards with MX Blacks. Before you buy one though probably best to have some sort of feel for what you actually want- try in store maybe? Mechanical keyboards are more comfortable for many, but the MX Blacks in particular require more pressure than most.

Of course. At this price I believe it is the cheapeast mechanical keyboard you can get your hands on in the UK. I've been to a few Currys that sells more expensive mechanical keyboards but they never have them on display -only the mainstream ones. For gaming I've been told that nothing surpasses the linear bliss of MX Blacks though...well MX Reds, but it's like finding a needle in a haystack for people in the UK.
This is a great keyboard. I've made a proper keyboard layout for it so that the keys do exactly what they say on their labels. You can download it here:
