Looking for new keyboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, I am looking for a new keyboard. I don't mind the size, as long as it is somewhere between 60%-100%. Budget is £100, would be nice if it was a bit less tho'.
I am looking for Brown Switches, not sure what brand, cherry MX Brown? 

(Don't know much about keyboards, that's why I am here.)

I was looking at some Ducky keyboards but I am not 100%, heard of some from drop and some other places, I would also be changing the key-caps, not fussed on hot-swappable switches.

 

All recommendations are helpful!

ducky is a good brand to go with and most of the reviews I've seen about those ducky were quite positive.  If you can find one with kailh brown, the tactility is better than the cherry switches imo ... my gf has a rosewill k81 and it's really a nice keyboard ... probably not as well built as the ducky but it's good enough.

There's also a lot of other tactile switches.  People here could probably help you with choosing one.  I have kailh speed copper that I really like but not everybody like them.  It depends of what you are looking for ... the cherry mx brown are usually really soft and almost feels linear, some people looks at someting like that and won't like more tactility ...

Ducky has some good products, the One 2 mini is pretty good for the price, I wouldn't recomend drop at the moment, as they have made some scummy business choices in the keyboard industry.
 

As for tactile switches, there are the brown switches made by every company, but there are also box royals, holy pandas, zealios V2 or Zilents, there are also all the switches that use the T1 stem. I'd recommend going through the mechanical keyboards subreddit.
