Crackin mechanical keyboard deal, if anyone is wanting to test the water, but doesn't want to fork out for higher priced models. Great spec, decent video reviews, great customer/product reviews.

As pointed out in comments, this is a US layout (although in some of the comment reviews on the website, it appears you may be able to request other regions), but the keycaps are interchangeable and cherry keycaps will fit, so it you really want to have the key match your region, you can just replace some of the keycaps to fix.

Item is available from their EU warehouse too, so shouldn't take too long to arrive and should avoid any potential hassle with import taxes.

"Main differences between a US and UK keyboard: an AltGr key is added to the right of the space bar. the # symbol is replaced by the £ symbol and a 102nd key is added next to the Enter key to accommodate the displaced # @ and ” are swapped." - blogs.transparent.com/eng…rd/

For a lot of people it can be a put off. Having to relearn where certain keys are again. Especially, when what they want isn't even printed on the keyboard.

It's only fair, to point this out, that it's not laid out to what they're used to.

Plus, it's more than just what you quoted. (Directly from the site you linked)

Ah, Google must've clipped that bit out. Cheers for pointing it out. A potential fix would be to change the keycaps of the US keys with UK layout keycaps, if it was really an issue remembering the incorrect ones.

Apparently Cherry keycaps will fit these switches fine...

Its no go for me due to the US layout (not huge difference but I am lazy) but instant buy if it was UK layout..
I have one of these and its a great programmable little keyboard all be it more basic than expensive brands; paid a few pounds more but so far is worth it. Haven't had any problems with the layout so far, just something to get used to, but it is something to be aware of. Just got fed up with the big brand names selling me keyboards that were inherantly faulty and didnt even bother recalling them. A razor with faulty wiring and a corsair k95 where all the lights died and eventually died itself. So thought id try something cheaper and fingers crossed so far no regrets.
Ordered, chose netherelands post, with the insurance. Hope it comes quickly
If you are happy using US keyboard layout - this is a great deal.
However, for me, the US layout is a killer. I'd rather pay the extra £50 premium to get my pound symbol and \ and | keys in the right postion.

For those who don't care about the layout though, this is a ridiculously hot deal and cheap entry into mechanical keyboards.
