As of right now, what are the best cheap mechanical keyboards?

I want to get something with either reds or browns because I share a dorm room with someone and blues are pretty obnoxious at night. Tenkeyless is good because I have crap for desk space.

I was looking at the CM Storm QuickFire.

Any better deals?

The one you listed is one of the best options if you are looking for bang for buck. It is the one I would go for, and I even prefer it to some more expensive options that are popular here on the board. It is Costar made and has costar stabilizers, which to me feel infinitely better than the "mushy" cherry stabilizers boards such as the Corsair and Ducky keyboards use. Additionally, it is really well-made and a quality product without all the frills and dumb-looking (imo) esthetic of most "gaming" peripherals.

You can get it cheaper at newegg I think. It might also be worth it to check the classifieds section of geekhack.org. You can sometimes get a decent deal there.
