if you really like mechanical switches then yes, but I think for 40pounds there are some really nice membrane keyboards out there.

If one does not fail at times, then one has not challenged himself.

Mechanical keyboards generally have a reputation as being superior to their counterparts, however it really just comes down to personal preference. Try some mechanical keyboards in-store if you can, and see how you like them.

Not sure if you will be able to find a mechanical keyboard for 40 quid, and if you do, it will be a very basic one with almost no features.


Check out the Microsoft Sidewinder X4.  Its membrane, but damn, its a fantastic keyboard for the price.
