No poo?
Decent price for a lolita.
Great find, I've been looking to replace my Cherry MX Red switch keyboard for ages (switching to blue, better for typing), but didn't want to pay too much. Most the cheap ones are US layout so this is cool.
What do the different colour switches mean ?

Watch out! These are not Cherry switches but Kailh mechanical switches.
Be aware though, no number pad. Bought this the other day for my son and it's a great keyboard but no number pad was annoying. I should have realised looking at the picture but such is life.

You want a 104 key keyboard for that. I would have happily paid like £15 more for a numpad but they do not do one

They all have a different feel. The blue ones make a higher pitch click sound and they also feel the best imo. Reds do not have a tactile bump at all. Brown is like blue but quieter as they do not have the high pitched click. They do not feel as good tho.

They are kailh switches which are imitations of cherry. The page applies.

The worldwide patent on Cherry designs expired this year, so the market is now flooded with imitations that use the same design and the same colour scheme.
They look like they were made on a budget no sarc.
So... does this sound like a typewriter, or...? How does this compare with like a Thinkpad old-style? I have no idea but I'm sure I want one.

Also - who the hell wants a numpad when desk space is so precious? Notwithstanding accountants, 2D top-down platform gamers.

Yep, I already knew that. I needed a higher activation force the Kailh Blue are 50-60g just like Cherry MX Blue. There is only a very small difference in tolerances between the 2. Cherry's patent recently ran out so these are almost identical, they've got good reviews too.

Yes mine just arrived in the post (20mins ago) I'm using it right now on Win 10 plug and play simple, gotta say it's damn nice. heavier than I expected.
You just get the keyboard in the box though no key puller or anything extra.
Full N-Key roll over works too, but you have press FN+F9 to activate it, seems to all work really well. Blue keys over Red ones all day long for me, love it.

​Errrrrrmmmm people that use a number pad want a number pad. Amazingly enough, just because you don't, doesn't mean that others don't.

It's extremely well built for the price. Received mine today and looks and feels like its worth double this price.

Me, I use my numpad regularly. I also have plenty of desk space.
I think the idea was, "what proportion of people use a numpad?" Very small indeed. But either way.
Expired.
