Seems not bad for $30. Might be worth it for those clone Blue switches.

Go logitech. I bought a 710+ 3 years ago for $60 and got a free upgrade to a G910 last month because the space key stopped working. Overuse.

Also got a free G430 upgrade to G432 after 2.5 years of use.

The warranty is amazing.

What the heck? I though the warranty was only two years. I see so many negative reviews on all of the Romer-G switch keyboards they sell for failing just outside the warranty.

I have a G610 where I had to use Krazy Glue to repair the fractured stem connector on a key earlier this year because they didn't stock replacements, and it was also out of warranty.

I'm kind of wondering what kind of Jedi mind trick you had to use to get better service than that.

Have you messaged their customer service? I just said it broke and they said they will send a replacement.

Warning for anyone not familiar with key switches. Blue switches are LOUD. If you're in a quiet environment or have people at home who values sleep, blue switches are very disruptive.

Yeah, that's what I did. Maybe I was too specific. It was also out of the two year warranty.

Thanks for sharing, grabbed one. Fantastic price for a mechanical keyboard.
Wonder if they'll be louder than the Kailh BOX White switches I use now.

Anyone able to find any reviews on this? Seems odd, a search for the product brings up very little...erm
The model number appears to be: kb-2128
Price is nice; but not sure if I need. Great post OP.

Thanks OP.

I have an older ZHUQUE (lol) mechanical keyboard (this one but in black: https://www.amazon.ca/Teamwolf-Mechanic ... B01EY9D2L6) I purchased for about the same price a few years ago with clone blue switches but no numpad. Since working from home, not having a numpad is getting to be frustrating.

The ZHUQUE is obviously a cheap Chinese replication of a mechanical keyboard but it gets the job done and it's pretty durable. My only initial thoughts is that this one seems more plasticy than the ZHUQUE (the Z has a metal faceplate and underbody. I haven't opened it to see what it looks like inside but I'm guessing it probably doesn't scream quality lol). Nonetheless, it's been a good little worker. No issues with button presses or connectivity.

Hopefully this cheap one is similar.
my mood today: :|

Just noticed that the semi-mechanical version uses Outemu Blue switches too according to the description? Do they have a hybrid switch with the same name, or is that just false advertising?
