So you want other people to collect data and tier it for you, then you'll put it in a list and take credit?

also, the JL Comfurni is a surprisingly good "mechanical" keyboard for the price, (its actually just really loud mecca-membrane)

Every Omnikey with Alps switches wipes the floor with every single off-the-shelf board.

I will not take credit, I want this list to spread through LTT and maybe help someone who wants a new keyboard.

theyre cheaper in the UK, (£40-45 GBP), 

 

the keyboard justifies the price, a suprsingly tactile feel for a mecca-membrane keyboard, and it doesnt sound too bad, with pretty quiet noise for streamers and just talking on discord in general, or if you live with parents and you're typing at night.

 

and the RGB is incredible for the price point, bright colours and fully customisable, 

 

some of us arent into clickity clackity loud bits of kit.

 

its cheaper then alot of branded XL RGB mousepads, a CableMod kit, or even the Price of a single RGB phillips hue bulb, 

 

i think you will find for a budget pricepoint it is a very good keyboard

Still a lot for rubber domes.

Rubber domes are inherently very tactile.

Sound is subjective, I think it sounds terrible.

A regular rubber dome that costs a tenth of the price is quieter.

Can't argue with this, although it shouldn't make a rubber dome board cost $70.

And some of us are into good keyboards.

Because these are stupid and overpriced, just like the keyboard.

a CableMod kit,

Those are high-quality and worth the money.

Price of a single RGB phillips hue bulb,

Bullshit.

No, it's an awful board for the pricepoint. Rubber domes, shit keycaps, mediocre build quality, and since it's a Razer product it probably won't last long.

Keyboards are very much personal preference, to the point where I do not see the value of such a list. One of the good things about keyboards, especially custom mechs, are the many options and customisability you can get. Also, putting $200+ as a single category isn't really fair. Putting the KBD75 and the Satisfaction 75 into a single category would really be weird.

OTD CLs are very good quality/price. I nominate them for the 4000$+ category. 

There is no $4000+ category, so it's going to be in the $200+ category, same as the Corsair K95

Why would quality ever be decided by price?

 

Aswell as something as preference based as keyboards.
