"Special 199 keys Nordic layout"

"physical"
as in the keys are marked exactly as they will type?
amazon.co.uk/gp/…new

Out of stock to order at Amazon for £49.99 if you have Prime. Also, never heard of Xtrfy, but I have Cherry. This keyboard isn't made by Cherry, their patents expired and now anyone can make switches for keyboards using the designs.
I want this, but wireless
I've seen a lot of mechanical keyboards out there and people seem to gush over them.
Without trying to sound like a pleb, what is so special about them?

Cherry MX switches are still made by Cherry, 99% of mechanical keyboards on the market are not made by Cherry themselves since hundreds if not thousands of board manufacturers use their switches to make keyboards. Xrtfy are one of the best and well known peripheral manufacturers on the market, so this is a great deal for those looking for a solid full layout mechanical keyboard with backlighting, 9 onboard macro keys and a detachble braided cord. This is probably the best value mechanical keyboard I've seen recently.

Yes, unless you are using a different language for your keyboard through your software.

It's a feeling you can't really describe, many mechanical keyboards use different stuff below the keycaps (switches) that dictate how pressing a key feels smooth (linear switches like red/clear), bumpy so you know when you've pressed a key (tactile switches like brown) and loud and bumpy (clicky switches like blues). Personally blues are my favourite and are highly regarded as the best for typists, reds are regarded best for gaming because of their smoothness and browns are blues but quiet. I've had all three and they are levels above any membrane keyboard which all feel squishy and prone to contant missed keystrokes when typing fast.

Can anyone recommend a deal around this price point with cherry brown switches and similar layout?

Is this actually a good keyboard? Looks like its been around £110 on Amazon for a long time so big discount here.

It looks great on paper & made by a reputable brand, take a look at some reviews on YouTube if you want to be sure.
