Just about to buy this keyboard and now this

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was just about to buy the Glorius gmmk tkl keyboard with Box Brown switches and black aura keycaps when I found this. Very annoying looks like it ships from the US :(. £13 postage and wont arrive for weeks. This put me off a bit because If I had to send it back, It will be very expensive to ship to the us from the uk and will just be a pain in the ass. Are there any other keyboards or am I just gonna have to stick to this and risk having to pay loads to send it back if i dont like it?

Isn’t there a UK store, and isn’t it also sold on Amazon?

My words of advice:

Don't buy Cherry Browns.

Don't play Overwatch. I've hate the game yet I play it every day.

Wireless > Lighter Mice

Silence > Temps for Coolers

Get a good PSU

It doesnt seem like there is a uk store. Also I cant get an option with the certain switches and keycaps I chose on amazon.

There are some barebone versions on Amazon UK. Maybe if you get that and the switches and caps seperately? It would probably be at a higher price but the delivery time may be better..?

It's hot swap. You don't need to order it with the switches you want.

Yeah I could by the switches and keyboard base for overall £115 when it is only £75 from glorious which I dont think is worth the extra £40.

Yeah, £40 is too much... wouldn't be worth it for me either.

Here is a complete keyboard with a choice of speed switches from kailh.  I have the speed copper and like them a lot.  They feel good and have a satisfying tactile bump.  Those keycaps are some random I chose but feel free to look for yourself for different set.  They are not shine through. 

 

All in all it's a bit more expensive than if you bought from glorious directly like you said before but I think it's worth the extra money just to avoid the hassle and extra cost of returning it if there's any problem.  Also by doing it that way you have access to way more switches choices than only the selection from glorious.  I usually buy from amazon or ebay but there's a lot of good place to buy switches from ...
