I have and use this keyboard sometimes. It's better than a lot of the cheap mechs being posted. It's a slightly lighter, thinner Corsair Strafe RED (Which I also own), but it has clicky blue switches and braided cable instead of smooth plastic.
See my review on newegg "Matthew S.", third one down: [newegg.com]

It's probably worth $25-30 tops i'd say, and is a good intro to mechanical keyboards if you are in the market. If you can spend anymore than that, get a refurb corsair when they go on sale from time to time.
All functions are useable without installing drivers, just use the FN+Up/Down keys, etc.

They are true blue switches. The keyboard looks NICE for the price. Keycaps are a little thin, injection molded plastic, and replaceable with any Cherry caps (IIRC)

Thanks for the info, I wasn't able to find many reviews. I pulled the trigger on two of them.

I got this keyboard last time it was on sale. Don't think it was this low though Frown it's my first mech keyboard but I'm happy with it so far.

What kind of switches are these? If they are KaiHua Yellows [deskthority.net], then I'd recommend against this (1st gen Kailh, easily breakable stems)

Yes, This brand Rapoo is older than a lot of mechanic keyboard brand. And yes, they designed the yellow switch.
