Says it is on the specs.

Says UK and has £ symbol so confident it is
Looks great for a cherry MX keyboard, in terms of value. Nice and compact too

I mean seems a cracking deal just any kind of back key lighting would have been nice
Reds are my favourite for typing, Blue are too noisy for me
Nearly got excited for a moment as this is a cracking deal. However, that tiny return key I think has put me off too much.

Heat though.
Was very tempted to buy this but wish this had white backlit keys. Not for flashy purposes, I use my computer a lot in the dark and being able to glance at my keys if I did a typo or what have you makes life easier with back lit keys.

Hot deal though!
What's everyone's opinions on red switches? I bought a mechanical keyboard switch tester (blue, brown, red, black) and I dunno but with red it just doesn't feel very mechanical, it feels very similar to a normal keyboard

Only with the blue do I feel the 'mechanicalness' and maybe do a lesser degree the brown

The specs say it's UK QWERTY Layout, so it should have the large ENTER key. The photos in the product listing are for a US Layout keyboard, which is quite common for keyboard listings. If you receive it and it's the US layout then send it back and refuse to pay any postage costs, etc, because they blatantly listed it wrong.
Great price on a keyboard with real MX switches! - Just a shame it isn't back-lit.
1% top cash back for those wanting to save a few pennies
I got this keyboard a while back from CCL, It is UK layout with a big return key.
any free postage options?

Thanks.
Do you like using it?

What's this thing about red?
Is it a classification about key press feel?

Browns are a nice compromise.

Browns are a nice compromise.



Not tried Brown but happy with the Reds (Kailh mind you) I'm using. Feels nice and smooth to type on, and doesn't wake the whole building up
Thanks, ordered

Yeah I like it. I use mine mainly for gaming and they're much easier to press than my last keyboard, that had Cherry black switches which had more resistance. The Brown and Blue switches have a tactile bump in them to let you know a key press was registered.

I have cherry browns in my keyboards.
I think I need cherry blacks because I hammer the keys to the point where I don't feel the bump.

I can't remember if cherry reds have greater resistance than browns.
