Need help finding a Cherry MX Brown keyboard.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've been wanting a mechanical keyboard for a long time. I've been trying to find one but the one that I currently want seems to always be out of stock  <_<  And I really want to buy one before i spend my paycheck  :P

 

So if someone can suggest a good MX brown, blue backlit keyboard that is like $150 USD or cheaper (and is in stock) you guys would really help me out a lot.

The Logitech G710+ is great Cheery MX brown keyboard but, only if you don't mind it having white backlight's instead of blue.

The only ones besides this are duckys and they are all out of stock: http://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop/index.php?l=product_detail&p=456

You could wait if you muster up the patience but this is about it.

Hmmm main differences from this and the Ducky? I don't want a cheap one but if this is decent then I guess it's my only current option.

I really do want the blue LEDs. It would be a good option if I wasn't so strict about my color scheme.

Logitech G710+! Logitech is a great company, I have mostly Logitech peripherals, headset and mouse. The G710+ would be a great choice for someone that wants browns.

Yeah I know, I love Logitech stuff. Even their cheap stuff is great . But again I'm trying to keep a strict color scheme, (Blue) and the white LEDs would just clash.

 

And actually I've seen a lot of reviews about Rosewills' keyboard and how a lot of the time it has LEDs go out... so i think I'm gonna pass on it.

It's probably due to the imminent release of Ducky Shine III expected out next month. Obviously, if there are stock of it, it's left over stock. And those places that are sold out, prolly won't or can't restock anymore. If you can wait a month or so, DS III will be out, they have the most LED colors and switch types. I'm waiting for its release as well.

Hmm well I guess I might as well wait. The temptation of buying stuff will be hard to resist...

LOL! :D  Yeah, I can go with that, I have absolutely no will power, and the lack of impulse control doesn't help.....so, I now have 10 mech KBs with an 11th on reserved Ducky YOTS edition which I've already put down a deposit on.

If your wondering why browns are out of stock as Logitech they decided to buy up most of the supply for their 710+ keyboards.

Okay, I've searched everywhere...and I can't find a single place that sells a DK9008 SII with blue leds and brown switches ANYWHERE!

 

Does anyone know where I can find one? the only place where I found sells it pretty cheap but the shipping is like 60 bucks... which would bring the total to around like $210...Help?

if you wanted a more custom one you can check this out:

it has brown switches and you can pick the lighting, even up to every key if you wanted but it would be expensive

My man has the RK-9001 and it holds up well. looks, feels, and sounds great.

Sometimes, if your neck of the woods has local tech forums, you can try checking out the Garage section. I had ordered a set of Miami key caps (thru a friend) and I needed a MK to go with it. Found a used Ducky DK9008G2 Cherry Blue at 50ish (USD), not a bad price and I get to test it for 3 days to see if everything's working, or I can return for a refund if there's a mechanical fault with it. Try checking out those forums if you can, I've had great luck buying GPU's, soundcards, three MK's from such froums.
