How is this keyboard compare to the redragon 552? Is the red switch much quieter than the blue switch?

I know it says it's only $4 off but it was $99 just last week when I was checking. CCC also shows that price and $76 is just 10% off the lowest price. Not bad imo.
I really wish there was a tenkeyless version of that board. I'd be all over it.

Ticks a lot of boxes.
I read that as "Licks a lot of boxes" and legit brainstormed for 30 secondes how licking a lot of boxes was relevant to a keyboard. Lol.

I mean let's be real.. If a keyboard helped me lick a lot of boxes I'd buy the entire damn stock.

Depends on your use case.

OP's MX red switch; yours is razer mechanical green (loud, clicky, roughly like mx blue)
OP's tenkeyless, meaning narrower without number pad, more space for mouse movement; Yours is full keyboard.
OP's N Key Roll-Over; yours 10 Key Roll-Over.
OP's full steel frame.

I'd say OP's is superior in every way in terms of gaming.

I bought the Corsair K68 RBG Mechanical keyboard from Best Buy for $99.99 yesterday. It’s refurbished but manufacture refurbished. Runs like brand new.

No stock at the moment though.
Still not tenkeyless but a great keyboard nonetheless. Got one for my gf that plays Overwatch and The Sims and she loves it.

Great keyboard... been using one at work for the past couple of years. BTW, Amazon's put it on sale for $64.99 a bunch of times. Might be worth the wait. It $5 isn't going to make or break you, then the MS deal is pretty good.

EDIT: never mind, this is amazon renewed... so just a refurb. Didn't notice that initially, quite sneaky

Razer huntsman is $95 right now, was 106 back in April. Full RGB and optical switches, never tried them but heard good things

Thanks, dudes and dudettes. I was looking for a keyboard for a PC build I'm doing, and with the discount Microsoft gift cards from Costco it turned out to be fairly decent. Was good also that I was able to spend some dollars I had on an outstanding Costco gift card. :-)

From my research the Razer seems a better choice for work and HyperX for gaming
