Right here [monoprice.com]. Apparently they're not true Cherry switches but clones; it gets good reviews nonetheless. Biggest complaint is the lack of adjustment for backlighting (has different colors for each row, which seems silly to me), but if it were me I'd turn it off anyway, which can be done. Cheapest shipping for me was $8.49.

Fair warning: Despite the title of the listing (the link, not OPs post), these are not actually RGB LEDs. See the comments. It's just a different color for each row.

This is actually a trend now in cheap mechanical keyboard listings, and it's super deceptive and incredibly annoying. You can basically assume that if you see a picture with each row a different color, it's not RGB.

Has an odd font also, on top of the set key colors. Decent keyboard though.

Kailh is the worst Cherry clone. They fail at 6 months. The best Cherry clone would be Gaterons. Outemu are acceptable Cherry clones. Kailh is garbage.

I've had a few kailh boards that have been excellent, namely an azio with browns, which has a metal backplate and is built like a tank. The one board I had with gaterons had huge problems with warping, but my kailh boards have lasted years. Nothing is going to beat cherry or torpe imo but these arnt bad
