These seems like really good prices.

Both of my coworkers have one and they've had no complaints since they got theirs late last year.

I'd get the Quickfire TK with the blues. I actually really want to buy one. Maybe I will. I already have a Razer Blackwidow Ultimate with blues, though.

Get it, $75 for a fully backlit Mechanical Tenkeyless Keyboard seems like a great deal.

Although pay attention to the keys. It still has a numpad so it did some sort of weird overlapping thing with some of the command keys to make it smaller.

When NUM lock is off the bottom of the number pad becomes the arrow keys.

Get the Quickfire Rapid or the new Quickfire XT. They're pretty much like budget Filco boards by costar I believe. And with the XT out, no need to pay higher for a Das, Rosewill, Leopold, or Corsair.

I have a Quickfire Rapid CM keyboard and it is absolutely fantastic. Feels well made, and has lasted for a while now. Never going back to rubber domes <_<

They use high quality Costar boards, they're not "cheap" by any means. Just competitively priced.

Though earlier on CM actually did have some QC issues, but ever since then it seems like they really ramped it up. All their current boards are golden.

No... those are pretty much the standard prices that I buy mechanical keyboards at.
I really hate the gamers inflating keyboard prices to 100+ dollars.

The most expensive keyboard I ever bought was this Ducky Shine MX Brown for 80 dollars.
I can't justify spending more than this unless all mechanical keyboards became more expensive in general.

I have the QuickFire TK with Blue switches. It's fantastic. Super solid, no complaints. Great value.

I've been really satisfied with the quickfire TK I bought and I know a lot of people on r/mechanicalkeyboards that went with Quickfires and have had good results.
Lower prices is a good thing in this case. :)
