I wish they wouldn't make this sound useful with the first few words of the brand... Like a power tool or accessory

haha your right its pretty stupid. On the deal itself it looks like a pretty good deal for a solid mechanical keyboard

Cherry MX Red is $5 cheaper. Sounds like Red is good for gaming, brown is more multipurpose. Any thoughts one way or another?

i just wanted to make it clear to everyone that this deal is for the red LED backlit keyboard, not the RGB.

  • Red for gaming (no tactile "bump" to resist the key so no missed button presses, that can be distracting).
  • Blue for typing (great feedback thanks to the tactile bump and audible click).
  • Brown for a mix of both (tactile bump, no audible click).

I have the blue switch version of this keyboard at work and it's great. Heavy as an anchor, but it types wonderfully. Plus you cant beat the price (I paid $85 a few months back) for a mechanical keyboard with a number pad, dedicated macro keys, and media buttons (all of which are actual Cherry switches, except for the media buttons, obviously). I did have to put o-rings on the switches because it was too loud to use in a shared office space, but with some clear o-rings (to allow the backlighting through), it works just fine. I have a brown keyboard at home and it's just disappointing to type on in comparison. Easier to game with though.

I need to buy a keyboard also but which one should be better, this one on the post or this one in the link?

No Deal. This keyboard has been at the same price for months on Newegg. And for those who are curious, these are not RGB backlit and have a very odd bottom row size.

Love the brown switches. But.. It's always red.. why is it always red.. Corsair has red. MSI has red. G. Skill has red. It's like standing behind an ambulance/police cruiser all day and night.

Red is easier on the eyes.

Well written. I have the same Blue version and 100% agree. I would not go blue for gaming though (my purpose) so I did have to go back to my older Red KB. I do use this for long typing stints though.
