I have been using SD for many years, but this is my first time posting a deal. Please have mercy on my poor soul if I did anything incorrectly. This seems like a pretty slick deal to me on these well reviewed mechanical keyboards.

All three have Outemu Blue switches. The KM-G6 is back-lit with 9 different pre-programmed lighting effects while the KM-G3 RGB features highly customizable back-lighting and a more sleek design with a brushed aluminium panel. See product pages for more details.

Make sure to use the correct discount code for each keyboard.

Aukey KM-G9 87-Key Mechanical Keyboard $20.99 ($7.00 discount)

Blue switches. All 3 of them.

Genuine blues need more force to actuate and are mechanically louder, with deeper sound. There's a coarseness to it.

Outemu blues are lighter, and sound crisp. The difference is huge they're entirely different to me. These knockoffs are closer to Razer green , not Cherry Blue, although I'd advise against buying Razer products - high failure and bad RMA - used to love Razer.

I have quite a few mech keyboards. Cherry Brown is my favorite, overall the best IMO.

I can say I like them and own several of these keyboards. The problem with any knockoff is compromise that results in lower durability.

Some people complain cheaper switches feel different out of the box, or change feel throughout it's life (for better or worse). So probably a pretty close experience with lower durability is my judgement.

but of my ownership of several I've had no complaints yet, but I have not given my a durability test since I have like 4 computers I go between, it's not used as much as anyone's daily driver.

Thank you - been waiting for these to go back on sale, although really was after the KM-G4 - Picked up (2) of the KM-G3s as they are close to the G4.

Anyone know if these work over PS/2 adapter ? The manual doesn't seem to say anything and it only says USB.

I bought one of these from the previous sale, it's a full fledged mechanical keyboard and performs how I expect from mechanical keyboards.

I had an issue with one of my keys that started triple registering. I contacted their support and they sent me a new one for free. Which I'm pretty happy about.

One thing about this keyboard which is kinda odd is that the keycaps are the ones meant for RGB lighting even though this keyboard does not light up, so the text on the keys end up looking a bit dull because of that. Still, for 21 dollars I think that's forgivable and if this thing ever dies, you end up having a ton of extra keycaps to use with your other keyboards.

Thank you, that was a very well described comparison between them.

I use the Logitech G710+ Cherry MX Blue keyboard myself and love the feel of the keys but they are loud. I might go with the MX Brown on my next purchase.

Thanks a lot. I would go with Cherry MX if there are any deals.

Sure thing, glad to contrib. One thing to add is that Cherry Blue although louder ain't annoying. Knockoffs can be because of how crisp they sound, the noise can travel across the living room and get your significant other mad at night. Not an issue with genuine blues or brown.

There are a bunch of other brands/types on sale as well if this isn't exactly what you are looking for.
