Cheapest mechanical keyboard I've seen.

Uses Kailh Brown which are supposed to be parallel to the Cherry MX Browns

UPDATE: Price seems to have risen to £29, still the cheapest one I can find though.

I can't say if this particular keyboard is any good but I can tell you that Kaihl Switches are generally regarded as ok. If i remember correctly Kaihl actually create specific sets of keys for the corsair mechanical keyboards.

One thing I can comment on is that I recently purchased a James Donkey 619 from Amazon with Gateron Black switches and I'm extremely happy with it. Its currently available for £40 here

What's the best colour switches if you do mostly typing but sometimes play pubg and other shooters, but hate the noise from blue switches?
Just got a spare mechanical keyboard from Amazon for £20.99 but the switches are weird. They have a soft case around the plunger instead of the usual hard case. I will have to examine it further.

Black switches which aren't as nice as brown ones like this has for my taste. It does have the large return/enter which I prefer.

I have this board but I paid £40 for it late last year from Amazon. It's only £32 now.

Mine just arrived, the seller uses DPD next day (which was a nice surprise).

Keyboard seems broadly solid, there's some gimmicky functions (different backlight modes) and it's generally more solid than I expecting at this price.

does it have a nice clicking sound and does it seem good to type with? Ordered one coming tomorrow but won't be using it for gaming as I will for programming. thanks

It's not the clicky one (that's Cherry/Kalih Blues) but it'll sound louder than a membrane keyboard.

I'm a big fan of brown keys, they're largely smooth motion with a subtle click sensation where the key registers. They are much quieter than typical clicky mechanical keyboards but you get more noise compared to membrane keys (noise the keys make hitting the bottom and when they rebound back up). You don't get clicks, you get impact noises.

They're a good balance between noise, precision and comfort overall.
It's available on 7dayshop for £26 delivered, 7dayshop.com/pro…mk1
