Killer deal if you're looking to get a good, cheap mechanical keyboard. Blacks and reds even come with a free webcam, which is a bonus.

I don't know much about keyboards so apologies if potentially noob question, but why are the browns $30 more expensive? Is there something better about them because I thought it was all personal preference.

Weird ass Newegg pricing.

All Cherry MX switches are usually (like 99% of the time) priced the same. No idea why the browns weren't reduced.

Reds are usually more expensive and rare, however browns have been gaining a lot of popularity due to the advanteges over blues and blacks. I like red although some complain its easier to make mistakes with them.

Look at the reviews on those pieces of garbage. I almost jumped on the one with reds just to have a mechanical kb but the reviews are horrid.

No, seriously. At least go into the one with the reds and actually LOOK at the reviews. I know it has a 4 egg rating, but the 10 most recent reviews are all 1 egg. Thats as far as I got. if that many people got bad kb's out of the box I'm out.

Sorry, just realized from looking at some stuff earlier I had it set to show lowest score reviews first. Still though, quite a few bad reviews.
