Seems like a great deal, but you have to replace the keycaps to have full mechanical?

Keycaps are the actual plastic topper on the key. It's a membrane keyboard so you can't switch out the key switches, which is what you are talking about. That being said mechanical keyboards are overrated.... nothing wrong with membrane keys.

Gotchas thanks, I've been using a Logitech G11 for years and am fine with membrane keys to be honest

A good deal because it also comes with a mouse but the keyboard feels terrible to type on.

I learned on a manual. I am looking for an AT style clickety clack keyboard. The old gaming keyboard deal feels rubbery and not worth to return. I hate the Chiclet and soft touch keyboards. Any suggestions?

mem-chanical, LMAO...just be honest, it's a traditional membrane keyboard...and membrane keyboards are perfectly fine for what it is, what's not fine is when dumb brands like newegg/rosewill try to deceive the consumers with terms like "mem-chanical"

Unicomp still makes buckling spring keyboards based on the old IBM designs, but they cost around $100. I bought one, and while it's fine, it's not quite as solid as the IBM Model M keyboards. You can find them at https://www.pckeyboard.com/

You can buy used IBM Model Ms on eBay, but I found that a hit or miss proposition, and the few repair options are quite expensive. You also need to research a few websites dedicated to the Model M to make sure the one you want to buy is properly clicky, some are not.

I have a few of the Aukey KM-G6 keyboards that have been a FrontPage deal a number of times, and found them clicky enough for considerably less. (Aukey has replaced this model, but I just got one on eBay for about $35.) Some think they are too noisy, but if you grew up with manuals and/or IBM Selectrics, these Aukeys won't bother you.

Mechanical keyboards won't necessarily make you better at typing or playing games. But if you use the keyboard a lot and it's the one thing separating you from your computer; you owe it to yourself to see what the fuss is about. Don't just buy any mechanical keyboard though because you have so many switches to choose from. Do your research. Maybe test out some mass produced variations at your local electronics store. I hope you hate the experience and decide you can't tell the difference. Unfortunately I felt it was worth it and showed my coworkers what they were missing out on. Now we all have less money in our wallets.

I think once you're going with high profile key caps, membrane doesn't make sense. I'm a big fan of membrane for low profile and chiclet keyboards, but once a mechanical switch fits, I'd argue they make more sense. At this point they're so accessible and affordable too.

Technically, all keyboards have some sort of switch activation mechanism so it's really a misnomer to call some "mechanical" keyboards. But "clickety-clack keyboard that like the original typewriter" just doesn't have the ring to it.

Overrated? Have you ever used one before? Mechanical keyboards will be the best investment you can make on any computer, especially if you used it a long time. Not only are you saving your tendons from pain, but the typing experience and accuracy is far better. That's not to mention that a mechanical keyboard will last a very long time.

This keyboard is not mechanical. It is no better than a $10 Logitech keyboard from Wal-Mart.

Not really...... With a membrane keyboard it is literally two contacts that touch each other and the membrane is what constrains key movement. I wouldn't call a membrane mechanical in that sense.

Can get a legit mechanical for slightly more with a little patience.

I got this on Amazon for $33 and its a solid, very sturdy mechanical keyboard with metal frame. Best $33 ever spent on a keyboard.
