Quick, is this a good deal for a keyboard?

Ducky DK9008 Shine 3 MX Blue Switch Red RGB LED 108 Keys Mechanical Keyboard
$150 on sale for $120
Think I'll get a better deal for Black Friday/Cyber Monday?

Lastly, what is the difference between something like Red RGB LED and Blue RGB LED? It just red back lighting vs blue?

Personally, I would get the Corsair Vengeance K70 instead.

You think something like this at $130 original price would be better?

I do. It has a nice rubber wrist rest, volume wheel/dial, LED control, and supports USB pass through. It's possible that it could go on sale in the next two weeks too.

I just got the K70 with reds this week and it has been incredible. The customizable backlight and dedicated media keys make me happy.

120 bucks for a keyboard.... I rather get more RAM

Get the k70. There's a black anodized version if you don't like the silver. Here's a couple pictures that I took:

Feels good.
Looks good.
Has wrist rest and changable keycaps if you want.
Has dedicated media keys (play, pause, etc)
Has volume scroll wheel!
Windows lock and customizable lights. (Press a key and it turns on. Bright levels. Keep any key on or off.)

I like the Roccat Ryos MK...

that probably doesn't make your decision any easier, though.

However, I do like the K70 because it has some extra buttons I'd make use of and because I like the frame more.
