Good price for an entry level mech. No one has experience with these switches from what I see on discussions on Reddit etc.

That being said, they say they're clicky... so MX Blue clones likely? *cue KB elitist crew*

Has anyone tried this keyboard?

It's weird that it's 1 per client, I didn't know we had a keyboard shortage!

The biggest problem with mech keyboards is, obviously the switches.

Once they start double typing you are generally screwed. The vast majority of them aren't hot swappable/replaceable.

For a cheap keyboard like this you might say, don't care. But I like to keep e-waste personally, out of the landfill.

Looks like the version with the linear switches (MX Red clones) is on sale for $20 also

Shouldn't it be linear since they are red switches imitating Cherry MX Red swtiches, unlike blue switches which are clicky.

Hence the 87 keys, works for most gamers. If you want a full keyboard the look for the $70 mech keyboard with optical switches on Amazon.

as confusing as the whole colour thing is
Adopted professional equivalent switches, which offers quicker and springier response, crisp click sound for spring typing enjoyment, precise tactile feedback for ultimate gaming performance.

Just a heads up, I nearly bought this yesterday but noticed it's an ISO layout (L-shaped Enter key) keyboard, not an ANSI layout one... dealbreaker for me.

I don't like the shape of Enter key... and where are the CapsLK/ScrLK/NumLk lights? I don't see them on the photo.

I don't like the Enter key. I'll pass. But for anyone who doesn't care, this is a good deal for a cheap red switch keyboard.
