Maybe the OP needs this 'Mechanized' Keyboard to 'build' their OWN Optimus Prime or something ..... :-(

Hahahahahahaha lool. :-)


Good price, decent keyboard.

Got browns on my TK. Don't wanna type on anything else. Ever.

(although I feel the blacks on my QFR may be better for non-typing tasks )

I have TK Blues, they're amazing, but too loud. Room mate gets annoyed :D. I heard the build quality of these QPads are the best.

I'd like to know if the keycaps are of a decent weight.

Difficult to find a budget mechanical with nice weighty keycaps...the best I've found is the compact Quickfire TK, but the compact size annoys me (need to switch between numeric keypad and arrow keys)

I bought the full-size Quickfire TK and the keycaps turned out to be much lighter than those of the compact

Excellent price for a keyboard with blinky lights

No, they are plastic like most other key caps, though the mechanism is first class.

I use the MK-85 Brown for gaming and I really dont like it, have had the Red previously and honestly cannot wait to get another. The Brown for me just dont cut the mustard.

They are very good quality, no doubt about it, unfortunately I have had to send back 3 now because of "ghost key presses". To be fair to QPad I also must admit their customer service was excellent, they gave me a checklist to go through each time and on completion if the keyboard was still faulty they gave me a reference number to help with the RMA process. [This helped BIG TIME as the retailers could see what QPad and myself had done to try and fix the issue so they accepted the RMA without question. First class CS.]

I think you missed the point of my question.

Different thickness/density of plastic can be used...keycaps that are just 1 gramme heavier makes a big difference to the feel of the keyboard.



Just weighed the G-key on both my QFR and my TK Stealth. (both compact Kbds, I don't have the full size Ver you have). Both so close to a gram, digital kitchen scales can't differentiate. I did however try the ruler method and there's about a mm difference. The QFR key is slightly heavier than the TK Stealth!

Can increase weight by putting rings on them.

I actually swapped most of the caps over so I can type on the Stealth (Brown switches, tiny glyphs on front of keys) and use the QFR (Blacks) for WASDing.

Time for double-shot keys for you I think :8

Gamers prefer Reds/Blacks. I have no idea why they market gaming Kbds with Browns, they're for typing w/o bottoming out.

Get something with Blacks, stronger spring than Red. I like them.
