This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I bought one of these from Amazon in Jan this year and it has been rock solid I paid near 30 quid for it but I recently killed mine with liquid (not waterproof) but thought as I have spare keys and switches I would get another and found this, the chassis is metal and quite weighty, the switches are blue ones (Khali?) but also come with a key and switch puller with 8 spare switches, red/black/brown and blue so you could swap out the spacebar and enter keys for something quieter.

UK seller with good feedback and a 'Best Offer', best I got was £11.99 so bought 2.

RGB is very customisable and the keys are lit through not just backlit, I use mine on a constant red but does breathing and you can do a custom RGB set.

Might be a good introduction to mechanical keyboards. I have a Logitech one, I can do about 100wpm. I personally don't notice a performance difference between the different Cherry colours and Logitech's Romer-G switches to be honest.

Only down side to this would probably be the US keyboard layout (notice the narrow enter key, opposed to 2 line fat enter).

Yes I should have mentioned it is US layout but it never really bothered me plus as I have a spare UK one not the Pawhits broken one I can swap keys around.
That's a really nice looking keyboard. I've had my microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse set for so long i don't know if i'd ever get used to another one, but i really like the look of this.
Good price, funny name though, Pawhits, sounds like a keyboard for dogs
Sorry, I don't see anywhere that it says "mechanical" switches? It's probably right in front of my nose so apologies in advance if I have missed it. I will buy it if it is.

It's in like the 2nd paragraph of the description.

"Fantasy Game Time-Full anti-ghosting and N-Key Rollover design will avoid conflict in fast typing. Blue switches mechanical keys with pleasant clicky sound can provide you with a super awesome and flawless gaming experience."

Not sure what fantasy game time is though.

12 quid for a mechanical keyboard is crazy cheap.
I haven't looked, but, do they have other keyboards available with other switch types?
Ordered, thanks for clarifying the switches.

What is a mechanical keyboard?


most keyboards use a membrane, a small bit of rubber that presses down and makes the connection. A mechanical keyboard pushes down something usually a plastic piece that makes the contact. They're supposed to be better, but they do make a fair bit of noise too. Especially if you're typing away in your bedroom at 1am. If you ever used a 90s IBM keyboard that went clickety clickety every time you pressed it then that was a mechanical one. They don't wear out as easily too.

Looks very similar (minus the num pad) as the one I'm using here from Ebuyer (element gaming) although I can't find it on there now....
If it is then you will be surprised, I've had some expensive keyboards over the years, and for the price (£25) it's a bargain, if this is the same, well it's a crazy price!
Cheapest mechanical keyboard...EVER?

in my experience, they're all pretty much the same, they all make a click when you press the key i think it's part of the appeal for some.Corsair and Logitech come out on top usually but not cheap.

I'm using a £15 KLIM illuminated membrane keyboard, works fine for me. It's wired tho but supposedly better for gaming being wired. To be honest, I doubt any of it makes any major difference at all to gaming or even regular computing use. Just what some prefer I guess. Each unto their own and all.

fair enough, that's why I said in my experience though, all the ones i've tried clicked to some degree. These days, if I need to replace a keyboard, I go for illuminated, waterproof (or at least splashproof) and nice n cheap

Corsair and Logitech make top tier gaming keyboards that are non-mechanical.

Quite right.

If you've never experienced mechanical keyboards, you can get a set of various witch types on eBay for a few quid to feel the differences. Or bigger pc worlds that have a gaming section will have a selection you can try.

Blue switches as per this deal are the noisiest, too loud for me personally. Doesn't stop this being a great price though.

There are cherry MX silent if noise is a really big deal, but reds are pretty quiet too. But you are in a completely different price ball park than this deal.

dude i'm still rocking this MS Natural MultiMedia PS/2 Keyboard from 2002! image is the closest approximation I could find with the fat enter key. I wish it had NKRO (n-key rollover) tempted to mod a cheap mechanical keyboard like this so I get the best of both worlds.

You know, I always thought that and I always had membrane kb's (clickies were way too expensive), but the proof of the pudding....
I play Rust quite a bit, and on my old Apex gaming keyboard (and all the 'quality' ones before) I used to think it was lag that caused me to miss jump points etc and go plummeting to my death etc, you know it turned out to be the keyboard.
Since I've had this one the gameplay has changed so much.
For example, on this kb I don't have to fully press the key down, the keystroke happens about a 1/3 of the way down in my 'press' whereas on the old membrane one, especially when it was a bit older had to be proper pushed down to its limit before giving the keystroke. That split second is when you die..... usually on a critical timing jump puzzle.
Oos
Out of stock
Anyone else receive an email from the seller telling them that the batch they got didn't pass a quality check? They're offering a different model or a refund...
Got the same email, will probably just take a refund.
I got the email also
Me too.
