Good keyboard, Cherry compatible keycaps

The other reviews are agreeable: it is a good keyboard with the some minor defects. The details:

* The mechanical switches have keycap fitting that are compatible with Cherry switches, which means that all Cherry compatible keycaps can be used with this keyboard. This seems a major plus.

* The switches are linear (no keyclick) with heavier actuation. Seem equivalent to Cherry "black" ones to me. I like them, others may prefer clicky or lighter actuation.

* The keys have painted mid-grey lettering on black, which is sometimes hard to see. They probablyb are going to fade fast, but then they can be easily replaced replaced.

* The backslash/verticalbar key is missing, which probably is the reason why the price is discounted. This is again easy to fix, or one can use AltGr with another key.

* There is no backlight, but given the price it is not expected.

The keyboard is not too tall and comfortably weighty and does not click too loud, which are all good things.
It is pretty good as it is, but it is even better with nicer keycaps, and the low price means that with a set of replacement keycaps is still cheaper than most high end mechanicals.


Brilliant Cheap Mechanical Keyboard

Excellent little purchase, mechanical keys sound and feel great. Has all the features you could need for gaming, if you are planning on coding, this might not be the board for you, as the UK layout has no back slash, it shows one in the image, but this is not what you get in the UK, instead, it's a "#" key. The scroll lock key on mine was also printed upside down, but as someone who is using this keyboard for pretty much just gaming, i dont really mind, and it adds to the charm.



Brilliant keyboard, not the best but you have to spend 3x the amount to beat it.

Keys sound nice but the sound is slightly damped so you dont sound like a demented 5 year old whilst typing.

Also the comment below is amazing.

This keyboard saved my life.

I ordered this keyboard when I was off work for depression issues.

Things got worse and I eventually planned to hang myself, however before I did the deed I wanted to try out a mechanical keyboard - so the plan was to write the note using this keyboard.

I couldn't bring it to myself to end my life knowing how great this keyboard feels when typing.

I can't stop smiling, everytime I use this keyboard it feels like my fingertips are being massaged, and with the tactile feedback I hardly ever make a mis-type.

Great keyboard considering the price!
