Man, does Aukey have any keyboard with mx brown equivalent switches? It's always blue and red switches.

I have the back lit 87 key version and I have to say I'm very happy with it. It has a very solid build and the switches have a great feel and a positive clickey sound.
If you don't mind the rainbow colors and like a loud click when typing these are a great buy.

I have a similar aukey with the blues and full rgb.. I'm not a fan.. I bought it and promptly have it to my girlfriend in favor of a keyboard with brown (well actually razors orange) switches..

Ultimately though.. these are loud, but if you're ok with that then it's a great buy..

Hey guys, I bought a Aukey Mechanical Keyboard with brown switches about 6 months back. I continued to have problems with unresponsive keys. Aukey sent me a replacement, and it had the same issue. When I reopened a support ticket, they claimed that they would just refund my money and I could keep the keyboards.

This led me to believe that they do not stand by the quality of their product. Also, if you look into the amazon reviews, you'll see very similar situations with identical outcomes. I wouldn't waste my time if I was you guys.

Disclaimer: I own Bestek's 87-key version of this. They are basically identical other than the key fonts.

I highly advise staying away from rainbow RGB. Sure, you can say that they can be turned off but it takes 12 clicks to cycle through all lighting effects. All of the effects are horrible too.

Either go with white, programmable, or no RGB.

I also agree with everyone saying they're loud. I work from home so it doesn't bother me but I'd never bring this into an office environment.

I cannot speak about AUkey, but I see other people talking about Velocifire keyboards which I would recommend staying away from unfortunately.

I have purchased one about 18 months ago (VM01 model) and the tab key went bad after a key months., which I was able to get replaced and that has been working fine for a few months now.

I think proceeded to purchase a couple more of them (same VM01 model) for work office and a friend. The first one I received of this batch was like mine, but the 2nd one was a slightly different design even though it was the same model. The office one went bad almost right away, got it replaced from Amazon. The second one for a friend lasted about 2 months before the bottom row Shift to Shift stopped working. I said enough was enough and I just requested money back on t he one for my friend. Fast forward a few months the replacement one for my office is completely dead and fails to install drivers when plugging into 5 different PC's (desktops and laptops, multiple different usb ports). I show video to them after an email exchange, they ask for amazon order number, apparently it's already been refunded. I send another order number, already been refunded. They say they will get back to me, but haven't yet. The piece of crap is still sitting in the corner of my office for the day that they say they will send out a replacement unit. I'm doubtful they will. They don't even offer the keyboard on Amazon anymore, so I can't just buy a new one and return this crap to them.

TL;DR cuz that was convoluted. I have bought Velocifire VM01 for three different setups. Had to replace each of them. Kept one, stuck with a broken one and refunded the other. Highly recommend avoiding them and any products they sell.

I didn't bother to proofread. Just take my word that it's crap.
