Roccat Ryos MK Pro Mechanical UK Layout Gaming Keyboard with Per Key Illumination - MX Black

I don't know much about gaming keyboards but this was rated highly in a group review. In the review it had the price in dollars and the price at Amazon UK.

I thought there was a typo, or some other error, but camelcamelcamel suggests this is a newly exceptional price for this keyboard.

Please let me know if I'm mistaken so that I can send back the one I've got on order.

Amazon one has brown switches, scan has the black switches

I was seriously considering this keyboard from Amazon and decided against it due to the LED's failing

Basically these Roccat boards have the same problem that plagued some corsair keyboards a while back... they do not have Electro Static Discharge shielding leading to LED failures. However.. Corsair actually redesigned their boards to fix the issue.

Thanks LF. Been reading up on them, and came to conclusion that I wanted MX Browns. Thanks a lot for the info. Still looking. Can you let me know what you end up going for.

Well, i spotted one on Amazon which has caught my attention... I went to my basket to buy it the other day and amazon had run out of stock. then the price went up from £89 to £115! DOH!!

Cooler Master MasterKeys Pro S RGB Cherry MX Brown This is the cheapest price i can currently find.

It is a tenkeyless design, so no num pad... (gonna buy a seperate wireless one for occasional use) but for me that is ideal as I use low game sense and large mouse mat for my Counter Strike! (They do make a full size version £130) if you want the numpad)

One of the main features is that it uses the newly designed Cherry MX RGB switch. What this means is that the housing of the switch is transparent plastic and the LED is inside the switch. This gives a really nice uniform backlight unlike anything you will see from a cherry switch with the LED attached on the outside. (RGB cherrys are the same as their non RGB versions)

The cooler master keyboards get really good reviews everywhere.... are built like tanks and they are very classy and understated in their design so could be used at home or in the office.

I was also considering the logitech g610 with white back lighting... but i have seen a few complaints about high pitch coil whine type noises coming from them so....

I forgot to say about the non RGB version of that cooler master board before i mentioned the logitech g610. It's £30 cheaper from the same shop
