Look like good price for keyboard. Been looking for a mechanical keyboard without 10key. I have the k70 rgb in mx cherry browns but the 10key ruins my posture when I type. I wonder if the brown keys version will be on sale

how does the 10key ruin your posture when you type?

Its rather a complicated issue. I just recently realized that personally having the keys closer to my mouse would help with me type more comfortably. Although I'm not sure I'm ready to give up the volume controls and full rgb of the k70 for this keyboard

Three star average with 53 reviews. Ugh. Not to mention I rely heavily on the numpad (though as I've learned from my comment in a previous topic, a lot of gamers don't like it).

I've got the same problem - it does weird things to my shoulders after getting used to tenkeyless. Arms about shoulder width instead of farther apart

I have the keyboard, bought at this price. The software is fairly bad (but works), the windows key only works when the back lighting is purple (although I managed to trick it in to a different color once). This is its biggest, and basically only, issue for me. The only other was having to change to full n-key rollover manually from the default 6-key (more like 3-key in my testing).

The keyboard has a nice, sturdy feel. The Khali Blue switches are loud too, but the feedback feels great. They annoy my coworkers, which can be a nice feature. :p

As long as you don't mind a loud, usually purple, 10-keyless keyboard, it's a great keyboard.

Thanks for mentioning this, saved me a little time...should be in title, not even in description, guess the custom backlighting is more important.

Search Amazon, they have an absolute ton of 87 / tenkeyless mechanicals at and below this price. Much better switch type selection and much better reviews.

Louder than the cherry blues? As for the purple window key, I think something is wrong with yours. My current lighting is yellow and the window key works fine for me.

Looks like the brown keys version isn't on sale.

I used CM cherry brown 10-keyless at my main work location use brown version of this keyboard to use at a second location. It cost me about $80 (introductory "special" price), where the cm cherry version was going for $120+ at that time. I hardly notice a difference in feel between the two. I would guess the blue version stands in just as well for cherry blue users.
