All Keyboard Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2018
They generally will do that. One of the benefits of having a physical shop and pretty good(mostly) customer service.
I done that with an iPad and Apple swapped it without issue
If it is an apple product why not try the apple store?
Tried to use eglobal UK warranty. They wont provide a UK address for return so have to post to Hong Kong even though on their website they state that its a UK returns address. Avoid like the plague.
It wasn't even an actual comparison, just the usual rubbish talking point.
Hi guys, I ended up purchasing this keyboard. It arrived today and the number 8 buttons light is inactive. BUT the button works. I don't want to wait a week for the item to be returned and processed. I rather be refunded partially for the slight damage. Is that possible? I live far the actual store. Any advice? Thank you :)
Does anyone know how the keys compare to a SideWinder X4? Mine's still going strong but the keys aren't removable and there's a decade of gunk and probably rot underneath the keys. Both are gaming keyboards and from what I've read both have a short key depth.
All keys should sound the same. Does it feel the same. like depth of push ect?
Received mine today. The A key action sounds different to all the other keys around it. Is this normal?
Picked mines up today. Very nice, first time using a mechanical. The fun parts setting the colour scheme, takes a bit of getting used to. It is pretty loud tho, but i game with headphones on so no complaints.
Another question, do you want play it through a PC or Mac (ie a MIDI keyboard), or to play stand-alone (ie with its own synth, amplifier and speakers?) The former would work out cheaper if you've already got the PC/MAC gear
What's your budget?
I've tried to learn the Piano/Keyboard a few times, but i cannot for the life of me, stop my right hand doing what my left hand is doing when learning to play
Any recommendations for a keyboard for a grown up to begin learning a keyboard/piano?
I was half a sleep when I read your reply, it completely confused me at first. It's one of those days :D
im feeling the same im toying bewteen this to match my G403 Mouse & my G240 Gaming mat but i rather like the MSI one too
This has just been delivered, thanks for the post! I also have the K350, it's at least 8 years old now. I've broken the feet and recently the spacebar came off. I put it back but it's not the same, have to press it in the right place. I've wanted an illuminated k/b for ages, so decided to get this one. Bit torn now the MSI mechanical has been posted for £49.99. I do like having a dedicated volume control and mute though, so I'll probably just keep this Logitech. It feels nice enough and I don't really do that much gaming these days anyway. Looks great, I much prefer the understated look and the keys feel pretty decent actually.
It's a rubber keyboard but it feel okay. Good price from what you get.
hehe yeah thats what im thinking & this is a good price for it though dont really need it right now as i got a nice keyboard from maplins when it was closing down but it would complete my trio as i got the G240 gaming mouse mat that is amazing to go with my G403 mouse
Would you consider it to be a mechanical keyboard?
Ideal to give to the child of someone you don't like for Christmas.
I bought a factory referb K70 from scan about a year ago. The first one had problems, some leds not working. Luckily the warranty was direct from corsair so they sent me another k70 (which took about 2 weeks) which was mostly fine but has slight a buzzing sound when at full brightness. Thankfully you cant really hear it unless you put your ear close to the keyboard. Overall experience, poor. Wouldnt go through that again.
Seems to be some Scan haters ! I find Scan great even in the early days.
(y) Because im a total geek! (nerd) You can go down a pretty deep rabit hole with mechanical keyboards. When your ready for custom ABS, PBT Keycaps, Artisan key caps, O-Rings, or ready to choose your own board, switches, keyboard plates and personal aesthetics then come join over at reddit/MechanicalKeyboards (y)
Wow... How did you know all these stuff? :) Thanks... Will scout around... Probably will start with the cheaper options...
If you dont mind blue switches you could have a look at the following which are under £30 Redragon K552 KUMARA or K551 or the VARA AUKEY Mechanical Keyboard TeckNet Mechanical Keyboard They all are the same board under diff manufacturers - all are 87/88 key compact keyboards using Outemu Blue Switches. Good build quality, Acceptable for the price If you want red, white, black, brown, blue cherry mx switches then youll need to pay more. Have a scout around and see if you can pick up a Filco, Ducky or Das boards if you want something better.
Thx but no multi-device on that. I have the prior model k400r.
The Logitech K400 Plus is usually available pretty cheap on Amazon Warehouse.
need one of these with a trackpad
Anyone? I ordered mine on the day and amazon just keep changing my delivery date...
Anyone any luck with delivery?
Been after this one to try for a while, like the idea of having my iPad there for making quick notes and references whilst working on my desktop.
Hi, Can I ask if the device switching works with both Bluetooth and the unifying receiver? Meaning, if device 1 on unify receiver and device 2 in on BT, will the switching works? Thanks :)
Had a note book with an atom processor 10 years ago, it's quite slow
I have 4 of these, CPU gets overwhelmed easily, driver support does not exist (WiFi drops and you have to disable\enable), and takes 6 to 8 hours to charge. Also you can manage to discharge it while plugged in. Other than that it's good for the price.
It’s true. I bought a potato and use it for all my PDF needs.
You can view pdf documents on any potato, but if you want something cheaper maybe try eglobal
Got the 10” it’s a good device to carry around as a backup. My 10” only has 32gb storage, so generally not enough room to download and install the larger windows updates. (Feature updates). I’ve managed to get all the drivers, and I use nlite to add them to a windows 10 bootable USB to reinstall the latest OS when updates won’t work. That combined with one drive for files makes this quite handy for my job! It’s not perfect, but it’s cheap and so far it’s reliable!
You can save a few pence on your ibuprofen elsewhere ... 29p Asda, 25p or less in Home Bargains, and often cheaper in local pharmacies. Sainsbury's even charge 40p for generic paracetamol and can often get it for half that elsewhere
Sadly wasnt reduced within my local store. Must be a store specific offer.
Good Find OP! Going to check out my local Sainsbury's shortly!!
This isn't a mechanical keyboard with individual key switches. (annoyed)
No it doesn't, it's just another reason not to get a MacBook.
yes same i have there phone but need an upgrade.
Ha so it's near 40 quid, not really mechanical and a US layout. This is only hot because it's got Xiaomi in the title.
OP .. in case you're still interested?. Check this: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/linx-12x64-125-full-hd-2-in-1-laptop-tablet-with-keyboard-4gb-ram-64gb-windows-10-17999-delivered-laptop-outlet-3065905
Fair enough, that's cool, no problem, thanx anyway. :-)
Sorry for the delay. I've only used Andy after reading lots of reviews
I'm yet to use Andy (though ironically, I've both downloaded and installed it a few times this Year, and last Year). I've used both BlueStacks, and NOX Android Emulator, and NOX Android Player a few times before though ... Have you used any Android Emulator's other than Andy yet?. And if so, how does/did Andy compare to either of them too?, or ... thanx. :-)
Very true, that. Edit. Just remembered, I've installed different Android Emulator's on different Window's 10 Laptop at some point last Year + the Year before (just to see how it worked upon different systems, etc?). And even though those Window's 10 Laptop's I tried it on at the time wee not 'touch-enabled', via the Laptop's track pad/mouse, I was able to initiate some of the Android Movie App's I put on it at the time (without any issues). So it is actually possible, just fiddly as hell though, lol. I'm using a different Window's 10 Laptop these Day's that's a bit more 'purpose-built' (so none of that matters again), but it's neither here nor there, as either of the 2 'options' are possible same way?. :-)
It was labelled at £39 but scanned at £20. Bought it for my son for his ps4 and it looks and works great. Thanks.
Put lights on a mechanical keyboard and call it gaming. HA!
Damn that's one ugly keyboard, cheap though.
I wouldn’t “trust” this keyboard
looks like just another cheap gaming keyboard
Thanks. It's way too big :/
Says it under product information 47.8 x 21.6 x 3.4 cm
Why can't they state basics e.g dimensions. Moan moan.
Gah. Sorely tempted. Currently using a Corsair Strafe - perfect except for being wired. Desperate to have as clear a desk as possible and so wireless has massive appeal.
Seen a few reviews. Apparently it's better than the cherry MX switches.
Did anybody recieve this? I bought one but have received an email cancelling my order
It's built well. Has since been rebranded when Func was bought by Fnatic. I have the Fnatic Gear Rush which is the same keyboard. Has Cherry MX Red Silent switches on my version and a proper stabiliser bar on each of the longer keys, not double guide stems which are more wobbly (a la the Corsair Strafe RGB I bought). I returned the Corsair as the Fnatic went down in price from £80 to £67, so at this price it's a steal! I couldn't get it because it's not the Cherry MX Silents, but otherwise, yes. Go for it. Works in WIndows 10.
I bought one of these with Cherry Blues in it back in 2015, great keyboard definitely worth it at this price!
One of the best made keyboards I've ever owned. I bought mine year before my mates bought Corsair K70 's and these are nearly dead. Lights have gone on theirs but mine is golden and I play twice too three times more then them. I was hoping it would die so I could get an RGB keyboard, but no it just keeps going.
It's probably about 5 years old - still a great keyboard nonetheless. Cherry switches and decent build quality + wrist rest. Not bad at £40, though was cheaper in previous years.
Browns ;) Perfect balance of speed and tactile feedback ....
I understand the spec, I was more just griping because I like switches with some tactile feedback that are clacky enough to wake the neighbours
Cherry Red switches have the lowest actuation time and resistance out of all the standard Cherry switches, so they have the quickest response time when pressed which is why nearly all "gaming" keyboards have Reds. However it makes them less suitable for typing because they have almost no feedback.
Why are all the gaming keyboard deals always for MX Red switches! Nice deal anyway (y)
I have this board, got it cheap during Maplins closing sale. What I like: • USB on the back for charging • Buttons come off easy, helps with cleaning & replacing keys • Braided cable that unplugs, great for when you need to clean your desk. • Cherry keys great for FPS gaming. • Pre-Programmed lighting effects (no software to change this) • Aluminium body that's cold, looks great and feels sturdy • Deactivate windows key when gaming
Did anyone buy this tablet? The benefit of LTE is tempting. Would make a nice replacment to my sick Linx10
Worth bookmarking if you fancy the Windows 10 Pro option for the future, the price seems to fluctuate often. Will weigh less than a Thinkpad (though won't be as powerful, but tablets aren't typically anyway). (y)
Yeah I'm just gonna expire this me thinks
You're right, I didn't notice that. The "Windows Without Card Holder" is OOS. "Windows With Card Holder" is currently £149.99. Though the subject title says "Dual Boot". Didn't see Dual Boot mentioned in the manufacturer introductory video I watched? Mentioned at 1:00 The listing of recent sales here https://offer.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBidsLogin&item=183286899681&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2564 "Windows With Card Holder" last sold at £99.97 on 4th September. To be fair, the Laptop Outlet ebay blurb/illustrations/Specs tab doesn't make it clear, either, as it mentions Windows 10 Pro, even when you select Android. Main difference between the two (Windows versus Android) seems to be the supplied keyboard.
With Windows cost 149 pounds :-/

Is this a good thing?
£749 for a 7200U CPU though.
£99 for black ao.com/product/fmm00003-microsoft-surface-signature-type-cover-keyboard-black-50100-264.aspx
Keyboard is £149
