[Amazon.ca] Pictek Mechanical Keyboard Back down to 19.99

Saw a previous thread (moved already since deal expired) about this mechanical keyboard down to 15.99. Missed the deal, but its 19.99 now (showing lowest on CCC) so I jumped.

lol - the illusion of lowest price can be a great driver for increased sales!

Can this be set to a single coloured light for the entire keyboard?

Sometimes I'm just looking for a simple back-lit keyboard when using it for work

a k70 is like..... 2-300? lol, not very comparable, I wouldn't have my expectations that high, I personally have a k70 as well and last time I bought a cheap mechanical keyboard, although the build quality was great, the keys are just not on the same level.

I Think i got my K70 blue for around 140 (7yrs ago) .. but prices seemed to have increased to 200-250 now .... but keep in mind 50% of the price is branding, 15% marketing, 15% cost of actual unit and 20% is the real cost (thats just my guestimate) .... but for $20 Im willing to try it =D like i said . its gonna be either for the inlaws or my wife who is WFH

Aukey's and it's listings have been banned from Amazon for violating sellers terms; something something 'buying reviews'. Same with MPOW. Google it for more details on the news!

I got this keyboard yesterday. It’s not good. It weighs nothing, they plastic feels like a cheap dollar store toy.

The entire keyboard arrived bent and flexes with minimal pressure. It slide around on the desk

The actual switches are perhaps passable, the rest is trash

Even at $20 is barely a deal.

I don't see caps lock/num lock/ scrl lock lights. Does this keyboard have those lights?
