Deal is back - got in on it last time - first time owning brown switch mechanical and I like it quite a bit. Did not have sticky keys or feeling of typing on "mashed potatoes" as some reviewers have mentioned. Ends in 13 hours

Kailh brown switches - nice RGB effects with some pre-built "themes" - no dead lights so far after 1-2 months usage - 95%+ accuracy typing at 100+ wpm - thoughtful foldable/removable wrist rest. Cheapest brown mechanical I've ever seen. No extras (ie extra keys, switches, or key/switch removal tool)

Only gripe - it has slight pinging sound coming from the aluminum base while typing. Software for extra effects/macros works but isn't stellar/pretty.

Tempting. I love cherry browns... There's a lot of noise on Reddit etc that Kailh get stuck and are much less consistent than the Cherries. Anyone here with first hand knowledge?

I used a cheaper thermaltake RGB keyboard for a while that had them.
Outside of the keyboard failing for electrical reasons, I did not see a noticeable difference between the brown keys on my Corsair k70 and my cheap ones.

Why not. Giving it a shot, I need a new mechanical keyboard and it's hard to say no at this price point.

I have this and a Corsair Strafe RGB with real cherry mx browns. I use one at my office and the other at home, I don't notice any difference between them. For the price, this can't be beaten.

I've been using this for 3 years now. I have the blues and browns. Browns are my favorite. Haven't had one problem with it

Edit: never mind these aren't the ones I have. This one is mine:

Can the backlight be changed to one color for the entire keyboard? what does built in 10 backlight mode mean?

Just arrived on my doorstep. One day shipping, pretty damn great.

I have an authentic Cherry MX brown CoolerMaster keyboard, and now this. Very hard to tell the difference. This feels rock solid. RGB lighting is snazzy too. Very happy with my purchase. Thanks OP!!
