Any input on how this compares to the blue switched PICTEK that was up for $20?

Not sure about the $20 one you are referencing, but the $16 PICTEK keyboard deal is NOT mechanical switch.

UDPATE: Ah, I found the $20 PICTEK keyboard, it is mechanical, but is BLUE switch and is only 87 keys total. The $28 PICTECK is mechanical RED red switch and 104 keys plus multimedia controls. So, which one to get is really up to you based on which type of switch you prefer and whether you want an extended key count.

I picked one up to check out for my work computer since the Microsoft Wired Keyboard 600 sent by work really sucks after being spoiled by my home mechanical keyboard. For home I currently have an AUKEY KM-G12 red switch keyboard that I REALLY like (I'd rate it 4.5 out of 5.0). I personally prefer red switch over blue, people should try both if they aren't sure what would work best for their needs/preferences.

Thank you for your reply. I honestly don't understand where they get 17 extra keys from between the two keyboards but that might be more of an issue with my comprehension skills. I do like the volume scroll wheel on this one. Hmm. Might give it a shot just to compare their red vs blue switches. Thanks!

The difference between 87 and 104 is the full numerical keypad on the right side of an extended keyboard. There are other key configurations out there, but 87 and 104 are the typical ones.

This is one was also $20. I just clicked your link for the other blue switched one that I hadn't seen posted and actually I think I'm going to get that one instead of the 104 key. Haha thank you for bringing that numless blue switched keyboard to my attention!

blue switches are clicky. red switches are linear. red have no tactile actuation point so at a certain point the keypress registers, but there is no bump when that happens. red tends to be better for gaming and blue tends to be better for some people for typing. brown switches are the most average you can get though.

All these cheap mechanicals make me cry. Wish someone could make an inexpensive split ergonomic mechanical.

Alas, I guess the market is too small

I used ergonomic keyboards (mostly Microsoft Natural Ergonomic/Pro) for nearly 25 years and recently switched to a standard 104 keyboard with mechanical red switches. I don't miss the ergonomic at all and won't be going back now. Maybe I could be convinced otherwise if I tried a mechanical ergonomic keyboard, but none of them are reasonably priced, as you implied.

I can't speak to the quality of PICTEK (other than I got one of their RGB Gaming Mouse Pads and have no complaints thus far) but see that roller? Upper right? That's a Corsair-style volume roller; I love the hell out of that thing; probably the best feeling volume control; it's quick to operate and feels smooth. If it's as good as the Corsair one (no idea on PICTEK build quality) then it's a feature you should consider if you adjust the volume a lot.

Is this the cheapest red switch keyboard you can buy right now that's good or is there a better option?? I'm looking for a gaming keyboard right now but not sure what to get trying to spend less than $30

In for one! This is a pretty good price for an RGB mechanical keyboard with red switches. Right now I'm using a mechanical keyboard with blue switches with LED and picked it up for around this price.
