Just bought a 12 euro mechanical keyboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i was looking for a new keyboard to switch from 7 year old membrane keyboard, but i wasnt able to justify myself buying 100 euro keyboard so instead i found this 12 euro "mechanical rgb gaming keyboard" and lemme tell you what, its not even bad. Have you ever found some amazing brand-new deal like this? lemme know im interested :)

I doubt that keyboard will last long though, maybe a year at best.

Oh it's cheap but maybe it's too cheap if you know what I mean.

I personally wouldn't have wasted 12 euros on junk like that, you'll use it for a few weeks and it'll either die or start falling apart. It belongs in skip to be honest, you may have found something better on the used market.

Got it, I used to think like that also, not anymore though. There are few CoolerMaster boards on skelbiu for less than 40. 30,35, great options if you want to try decent boards some time.

if this thing survives till christmas i might actually opt for an actual mechanical one, christmas sales are a thing too, so my chances of saving money increases, i think

Reddragon are great if you like to keep the budget under 60 euros, built like tanks, no flex at all. Or if you like to go 100 or so, in Lithuania CoolerMaster are best bet, nothing better really available in stores.
