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.
That's exactly what I imagine.. Must be cheap overall and most of all, should be annoyingly loud and noisy since it's blue switches. I don't think I'm gonna ever use it, even if I order this.
But would be a decent deal for those who don't care a lot.

It's a 20$ keyboard with RGB & blue switches... I'm sure if you're used to 100$-200$ keyboards it will feel cheap... I've owned one of these before and it works fine, feels fine, does what it should... No reason to be worried

I like it.

Is there a single color option ( just amber for example)?

And thats what I imagine, im not paying too dollar so I cant expect the greatest quality, I did opt for the fukm size with numberpad.

My current keyboard had a sticky shift key so its gotta be replaced…

I ordered this for $14.99 when it was posted on here 2 days ago and received it along with the full sized one and two gaming mice from same company too. Using the full sized one here in my office this morning and so far so good.

Maybe I've used laptops for too long....I recently tried multiple keyboards and ended up buying an apple magic keyboard because I like the short key travel.
It was just too much effort to click on my old logitech ...Face With Tears Of Joy

I have the exact keyboard. It's awesome albeit a little loud due to blue switches.

mx silent red....I've been using mine for a year, it's a perfect balance for me. I wouldn't use anything like blue in an office environment or home unless you live by yourself.

Sure looks like the Redragon I am using right now. Maybe it will be decent?

Was it that $15 Omoton brand mechanical keyboard? Looks almost exactly the same as the one in this thread, even the box looks the same.

How did you find out it was ghosting? Just through some simple tests I couldn't find any ghosting, maybe I didn't test it correctly?

Basically it’s crap

but to be honest .. I love blue .. its like music to my ears .. sounds like a type writter
You need to try Kailh whites. If blue are the absolute worst clicky switches (they are, especially the cheap ones), whites are the absolute best. The click is so solid and consistent with no rattle, and the keys don't wobble due to the box white design. Seriously, I used cherry blues for several years before realizing how bad they were, give them a try if you don't mind spending a bit more. They're still considered one of the cheapest switches too.

FYI - Pictek does the exact same thing. I know this first hand as they were willing to "negotiate" a 5-star review from me. Just look at the amount of very likely fake 5-star reviews with tons of useless photos. Their products may be decent, like Aukey's and MPOW's. but Just be aware that they are doing the same thing others were banned for doing.

Waiting for the low profile kailh choc switches to proliferate in the budget market. Keychron and Logitech are the only big ones in the low profile game.
