I recommend this:

https://www.amazon.com/Redragon-KUMARA-Backlit-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B016MAK38U

Just picked it up, I've owned a few 70$+ keyboards and gotta say for $30 it competes with high end keyboards. If you want RGB It's only $40 for that version. Reminds me of a Ducky keyboard.

imho it's better than the black widow from Razer.

Prices have came down quite a bit lately, I bought a ducky shine 2 few years ago for 170€
If brute force doesn't fix the problem, you're not using enough of it.

Yeah but the general consensus is you need a $70+ Mech keyboard when really $30 will buy you a nice one like the RedDragon. The Ducky Shine is still over $100 and $40 keyboards compete with it.

Personally the RGB for $40 is comparable to anything I've used that was $70+.

Eh... It's more of a QA thing and while every company is going to have some kind of problem, the cheaper stuff is more of gamble.

Got a Drevo Calibur on the cheap not too long ago and the D key used to misfire on occasion and either shoot out two d's or none at all. Had to get it replaced, although aside from that, it's a pretty good keyboard.

Yeah, I used to be a Cherry or no buy person, but custom switches really are good enough these days at a fraction of the price.

I have a IBM Model M (1982), I will never go back to another keyboard.
