PLEASE ignore WTFGoD! He is wrong about red switches. Instead of taking the word of some stranger off the internet, do your own research.

http://www.keyboardco.com/blog/in...-switches/

BROWNS = QUIET, TACTILE BUMP (great for the office) (my personal favorite for all activities)
REDS = LOUD, NO BUMP (great for gaming)
BLUES = LOUD, TACTILE BUMP (this is that traditional typewriter feel, very popular, but do not buy this if you're around other people unless you honestly want to be a jerk)

I picked up one of these up the last time it had a deal. The switches are quite decent. Build quality is better than most at this price point, Aukey does a good job. Key caps could be fitted a little better, they tend to rotate a half-degree more than MX switches and caps when pressed on a corner but that doesn't effect the use. Compared to the Corsairs I have, obviously they feel and look cheaper but this is a great deal and at a great price.

Yeah it's awful.

Are these switches any good? I recently dropped a heavy item on my keyboard with cherry blues and many of the keys are busted.

Can't go wrong with this KB. Types great, loud click switches and the Outemu switches are good.

Good way to see if you want to spend more on a KB and see if you like the feel of the clicky switches

The reviews on the seller is really awful. I think I'll cancel. Not even worth dealing with the hassle over $2.

Is this legit for $2. Price mistake?

Also this keyboard was $20 2 weeks ago. Worth waiting for same price?
