Seems like a great deal, but that enter key design kills these for me. I can't stand that tall enter key. Anyone who's considering these, keep that design in mind.

Reds are low actuation force and less tactile feedback (low click-clack sounds). Mostly suitable for gaming
Blues are high actuation, more tactile feedback, mostly suitable for office, extensive typing.

But it all comes back to preference.

Browns are in between the above two.

For a detailed explanation with animations/illustrative examples, refer below.

The most renowned mechanical switches are Cherry MX. The ones in the monoprice keyboard are mfg by OUTEMU.

If you bring blue keys to an open office / cube farm you will get murdered.

Be aware that these use Cherry MX clones instead of the real deal, and yeah, that enter key shape is a killer for me. But if you don't mind those caveats, this is essentially rubber dome pricing for a real mechanical keyboard.

I too would be all over this if it weren't for the Enter key layout. Hopefully Monoprice will listen to us eventually...

Damn, was just about to order too. Good catch, what a terrible design.

red - silent, soft, linear;
blue - clicky, stiff, tactile
