Excellent price for an excellent keyboard ... so long as you want Cherry Red switches and blue backlighting.

I'm waiting on a solid Brown switch RGB deal, but this is heat worthy.

Have you had a look at Scan?
Might not be your thing, but they do have refurbished Corsair keyboards with good discounts
Strafe RGB MX Brown for £75

They also have non-RGB ones for less.

I picked up one of their K95 refubished ones - had worked great and the keyboard was pristine, could have passed as new.

Damn - that's a super hot deal too. Thanks for the heads up, and damn you from my wallet (which was adamant that I wasn't going to spend anything on PC hardware in March at all!)
So close. Waiting on a full size MX brown or blues for work. Not fussed on lighting, white light in an ideal world.
Good for the typists amongst us I think.
Bought this and collected today.

As others have mentioned, these really are a touch typists keyboard - and I am one. This is a solid well made keyboard and has quite a weight to it. I can see it lasting a lifetime. This is how keyboards used to be made.

These have no click and the only noise they make is when the key returns after being pressed. I Would actually prefer the brown as they provide some noise feedback (click) to confirm when a key stroke has been made, however none are available at affordable prices.

I tried other mechanical keyboards, but usually you will only find ones with the blue switches at the discounted/cheaper price ranges and to me they are not good. They are too loud and require more effort to type than even a standard keyboard.

I've no experience with VHenry switches, but IIRC they generally continue the same naming convention as Cherry.

Nothing off-putting at all - more purely down to preference. Red switches are quiet, light, and short-travel, best for gaming generally. Blue switches are are loud (clickety clackity), heavier press and longer travel, good tactile feedback, better for typing generally. Brown switches are the combination of the two, and my preferred. Tactile enough for good typing while responsive enough for extended gaming sessions, and quiet.

^ that's all off the top of my head, so don't quote me on it all perfectly. There's a good article on PCGamer.com which explains the different mechanical key cap feels. Google around
