Saw this thought it looks interesting. Made of aluminium, has optional colour changing LEDs and double injection caps (whatever that means) so seems cool. Not sure how good it really is but lots of reviews and says it was £39.99.

Double injection caps means that the letters on the keys are cast out of plastic and then the keycap is cast around them.

It's used here for the backlighting functionality, with the alternative being a completely transparent keycap that's then coated with paint other than the silhouette of the letter. It's theoretically more durable but a £20 gamer keyboard is likely to give up the ghost before the keycaps wear away.

That seems like an odd criteria. Surely what's important is whether it feels nice/precise/accurate/responsive? If you're after a specific feel you probably want to buy that specific keyswitch/cap/mounting combination.

Great keyboard, great price.
Had mine for 2 yrs and mainly used for (lots of) gaming.
I had a mechanical keyboard prior to this and it didn't make a blind bit of difference.
Ignore the keyboard snobs and just be happy you bought one of these great keyboards.

Had this a number of years cracking keyboard for gaming. Although If you want to use this for programming as well the layout can be a bit clunky.

Anyone know what the dimensions are?
It's sitting around this price for ages. I believe bought one for myself 2 years ago at the same price.

Ive had many a £5 keyboard that outlasted my £100 logitechs and especially razor.
i got a mouse from them and no idea where to get the drivers from, if i don't have a disc drive.

I've found the same, gamer kit at any price isn't designed to last in my experience, presumably to make room for the next big thing a few years down the line.
Looks great !
I remember owning this. Very solid build (probably because of the metal base). Looks good too.
Looks like a US layout from what I can see, smaller enter key and @ on the 2 etc.

Just google the details of the mouse with the word drive. There's always some forum or post somewhere where somebody has had that issue and posted a solution.

And failing that, give the disc to a friend who does and just ask them to email them to you.
