Blues are loud and clicky with excellent tactile feedback, great for typing but some dislike for gaming as double clicks can fail to register depending on method. Reds are linear and require less pressure to press which is liked for gaming but can lead to typos due to ease of pressing keys.

Super rare to get any mechanical keyboard for cheaper.

I added just the blue to my cart and the coupon works for me.
Yeah, looks like they updated the coupon to include a much larger list now (actually, it's changed several times, not sure what's going on).

Thx for the comparison - tempted to go with the blue for the price, but I do like the backlight/usb/headphone jacks on the red. No idea which one I would like typing on more (typing/gaming about 80%/20%, if I'm lucky, prob. more like 95/5). Wish I could get rid of my dependence on looking at the keyboard to type, then the backlight wouldn't matter as much.

Back lighting and usb/audio ports are all kind of gimmicky to me but blue is definitely preferable for typing. One thing to possibly note, reviews are saying this is only 4KRO which could really be a problem for gaming. Other gaming marketed blue switch keyboards are at least 6KRO if not NKRO with two USB plugs or PS/2. 4KRO is probably not a problem for typing however.

Ordered one this morning. Monoprice rarely has a coupon and this knocked nearly $50 off the price. Had been thinking about getting one for a while, and this pushed me over the edge.

Is there a known expiration date? The item I want has an ETA of 6-18-2013 but I think that might be pushing it...

Thanks. 4KRO is a bit of a bummer, but I can't say that I have ever needed more.

Any idea if any local stores sell any keyboards with the blue or red switches? I haven't been able to find any. I would really like to test out the feel of both before deciding.

Actually, it looks like Fry's stocks a few, but it's a bit of a drive for me (~15 miles). Was hoping that BestBuy, Staples, etc. might have them, but it doesn't seem that way.

In for the Backlit Mechanical Keyboard. $9.60 shipping sucks, but price is good enough to bite. Thanks OP.

Do anyone has a review of the 27" Monoprice IPS-ZERO-G??
Yeah, I ordered it with the coupon, $400 after CA tax/ship, got it today. Im reviewing the IPS-ZERO-G (the second revision of monoprice monitor) Sorry don't have a full weeklong experience review, but here's my impressions:

PROS
- Looks great. Front is all glass. Looks very classy.

- Couldn't find a single dead pixel (didn't look very hard though).

- Image is extremely crisp. Not sure about color accuracy, that's not my expertise. But the colors do pop.

- Build quality of monitor feels excellent, except for the base/stand. Despite being 27 inches, the monitor is light and easy to carry. Part of this may be due to the power brick being pretty large, but I like the tradeoff.

CONS
- Severe backlight bleeding. Some parts of my monitor are visibly brighter than others. Distracting during movies. I can see the bleed even if my screen isn't black (i.e. in normal images). Really the biggest negative of the monitor - it's so bad that I don't think I can live with it. It's clear quality control is bad in this area. I will be really sad if I need to pay shipping to them to get this fixed. Still debating emailing them about it.

- Stand/base is plastic, weak, and wobbly. It's wobbly where the base connects to the monitor. That means the base sits well on your desk, but if you touch the monitor, it will wobble where it connects to the base. Makes me worry that the base will break on me one day. It's only held together by one freaking screw point. Who thought that was a good idea?

- Stand won't adjust height. And this is a problem for me because the stand is actually pretty high so it messes up my seating arrangement, especially since the monitor itself is large. I wish the stand put the monitor a little lower, closer to the desk.

- Some ghosting, but hey, it's an IPS panel. I have yet to test it with games so I will report back...

- Is only 60hz. Can't overclock to 120hz like the QNIX monitor can.

- The monitor menu is really difficult to work. Badly designed. But, you won't have to fuss with it much anyway.

OTHER
- Pixel density is really high. Maybe higher than what is practical. Holy moly text is small... you can increase the size through various means, but many images in applications (Chrome for example) are scaled up and don't look good. This observation is neutral because it's not the monitor's fault. It's the app's. However if you have bad eyes, don't get this monitor because I am 20/20 and still have to squint to see text. The pixel density is insane.

In conclusion, I like this monitor, for $400 after tax/ship I am satisfied. It does have problems with severe backlight bleeding and wobbly stand, and that prevents me from thinking I got a good deal. I got my money's worth, but maybe not more than that.

BTW - if you order it, it comes with a dual link DVI-D cable. No need to order one! Love that. Also as a reminder, not all systems support this monitor. You need DVI dual link support. Make sure your video card supports it before you buy!

Beware, the resolution puts the font very small, not necessary a bad experience though as I've seen on retina apple automatically adjust the font so it doesn't bug you, but on retarded windows this likely an annoying ....

Thanks for that quick review. Please report back on the ghosting. I play a lot of FPS and that was reason why I returned a U2713HM.
Too bay it does not overclock...boomer
