Any Idea on Mechanical Keyboards around $50?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've been looking for a mechanical keyboard for around $50. I did look at techsources video. What do you guys recommend?

Well, the logitech g105 goes for around 50$ right now because it's on sale [on amazon]. But in general mechanical keyboards go for around 70-120$ (Do not quote me on this, I may be wrong, and there are certainly exceptions to this).
now you could go for the Corsair K30 or K70, but it does cost a bit more.

For that price you won't be able to find a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches unless it's second hand or on sale. The keyboards you see in that video are most likely made with Kailh or other brand mechanical switches. They will feel different compared to membrane keyboards for sure, just that you might not get the Cherry guarantee in quality or feel. Who knows, maybe you'll like them :D

There is no guarantee of feel. They test their switches for 50 million 'actuation' not consistency of feel/click. I have a keyboard that I used for less than 3 months with 3+ inconsistent blue Cherry MX switches. The keys still work, but the click... well some don't even make the click sound now.

May want to consider craigslist if you're on a budget and down with a used keyboard?  I got a Razr Black Widow for $30 bucks off someone, just make sure you clean it well!
