Imagine thumbs-downing a good keyboard deal because the keys don't make a 'click' sound.

This is a great deal. Coolermaster makes very solid keyboards. I remember when these were ~$150 a few years ago. A beast of a keyboard, red OR blue. More ideal for gamers.

Not only are red switches better for gaming because they're faster, they're more quiet so you wont annoy everyone in the house with your typing. Even better if you add o-rings, but these are already lo-profile switches so o-rings might not be necessary.

I got silent red and really enjoy it. I use it for my gaming PC and really enjoy how quiet it is.

for those who want to follow this - be warned. i used to be in team blue. but all the clicking and clacking definitely will get annoying for people around you. if you like the "bumpy" feeling you get before the keys bottom out, consider getting brown switches

While I agree with you I think this deal fell flat because of the MIR. Another thing to note is that this keyboard is rather tall for a low profile mkb.

This deal is getting downvoted for the wrong reasons. I'm going to safely assume that it's the "reds suck team blue derp derp der" gang who know nothing about keyboards except what they touch at Best Buy with their unwashed hands. You're supposed to downvote if the deal is inaccurate.

For those of you were wondering, the deal is accurate. But thank you, OP, for posting this.

Goddamn kids spewing hate when their only frame of reference is TikTok, YouTube, and maybe Twitch.

I use a low profile blue switch KB an it's way better than standard blue switch keyboards. I experience reduced finger fatigue and there is less pressure needed in the keystroke, but it still feels really 'clean'.

For reference my full sized (and first) foray into blue switches was a Logitech G710, which I picked up from a deal here, and my current (and preferred kb) is urlhasbeenblocked RGB Backlit Wired Gaming Keyboard.

I do a lot of writing and the 'click' doesn't mean much to me either way as long as the keystrokes are clean. I've never tried a red, this is more about just offering my thoughts on the difference between low profile and standard keys.
