Well the 2 other deals I posted seemed pretty popular, so thought I would post this one too.

The price for this board is obviously slightly more, but it looks like a very good quality unit - it also features media keys & USB/ Audio pass-through.

Full-size 104-Key UK QWERTY layout
Cherry MX Brown Keyswitches
Red Backlighting
FN Activated Media Keys
USB 2.0 Pass-through
Audio Headset & Mic Pass-through
Spare Keycaps & Keycap Puller

There's a good review here from eTeknix with lot's of pictures & some good information - at the time of writing the keyboard was priced at £160 oO so £49.95 seems like a bit of a steal for this.

A friend who had been evangelising mechanical keyboards for some time recommended this turtle beach keyboard to me. I've had it since Tuesday this week and am quite happy with it. so a big thumbs up from me after 3 days of use.

I did some searching around and found it really is quite hard to get a quality mechanical UK layout keyboard at this price point. It has a decent weight to it, feels nice to use and the build is solid and high quality. The design is pretty much is a no frills look, but to me function is way more important.

I'm no expert on mechanical keyboards so can't tell you if it's one of the better ones, but I can tell you it is much much better than my previous non mech keyboard which was a corsair k30 raptor. If like me you don't know much about mechanical keyboards (well i didn't until recently) and assumed they are all loud and clicky, you should know there are different types and they are categorised by the colour switches that they have.

This has brown switches and they are quiet, it sounds pretty much like a normal keyboard to me (although there is a bump when pressing keys it is quite subtle and most of the time i don't notice it).

Hope all this helps if anyone was umm'ing and ahh'ing on getting it!

Nice. Been thinking about a mech KB for a while so ordered one.
Cheap but not the best. No RGB lighting either you may buy what you think rather than what it is if that makes sense
It's been this price since January this year at the same retailer's Amazon listing:

Thanks well spotted! Will update the post with the Amazon link too - seems like a very good price all considered...
I actually need a new keyboard and want a mechanical, very tempted
I absolutely loathe Turtle Beach headsets for their poor build quality and was just dying to stomp all over their keyboards... but, they're actually pretty good. They really put the chintzy RGB £150+ price gougers to shame.

Bargain at this price. Heat added.
I went for the earlier deal on the 600 @£34.99.
I really want an RGB Cherry MX Brown but as one never used a mech keyboard I cannot justify the price, so getting the 600 as a possible stepping stone/test mule.

​Thanks for the first impressions. Do you know if the USB ports can accept a control pad or at least charge them?
Decent keyboard for the money as i have just had mine delivered on Monday and been testing it.
Keys feel lovely and not too loud.
The usb ports can charge and power an xbox one controller.
Braided cable is too thick and tough so very hard to route the cabling. Also if you don't need the audio pass-through then they just dangle about as they can't be removed.

One major flaw in the ergonomics though. The keys sit far too high for a normal keyboard and because there is no built in wrist rest, your wrist and hand has to arch up to get over the keyboard. Serious RSI issues when gaming with this keyboard. Can't actually believe it has such a major design flaw. I noticed it within 10 mins of using it and it gave me a cramp in my hand after a few hours gaming.
Will probably be fine if you have some sort of wrist rest/pillow but for the mean time this has been relegated to being used for work and the Corsair Strafe MX Silent is back on the gaming rig.
