Recommendations for a good mechanical keyboard

 Share

So, I am in the search for a mechanical keyboard with rgb or red leds with preferably brown switches, but I like blue switches as well. However, I do not know anything about keyboards, so I just wanted to see if you guys have any recommendations. The budget is around $30-$60 

PC: CPU: i5-9600k - CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 - GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 - Motherboard: ASRock - Z370 Extreme4 - RAM: Team - T-Force Delta RGB 16 GB DDR4-3000 - PSU: Corsair - TXM Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply - Case: Thermaltake - Core G21 TG

Just buy the $30 Redragon mechanical keyboard

RGB version is only $35 I guess

HA, those are the ones I was looking at, but it will definitely be my top choice now

There's also a $40 one but I don't know what the difference is

Here in Canada, I got a Logitech G710+ with Cherry MX Browns for $60 CAD at Staples. I'm sure you can find a G610 or G710+ for around that price as well.

Yea, in the US, it is not within my budget

Enthusiast will say you need to build one by yourself, and using Cherry MX switches

Honestly I just would recommend any which has Cherry MX on it, depending on the color you prefer. I bought an used one 1 year ago for 50€

You may have to look slightly higher than $60 for a mechanical keyboard. There are some ones under that. For example Red Dragon, which I’m not sure how good quality it is. But search around and you might find a cheap one with good reviews, a trusted seller.etc

Many of the Chinese brands are a lot better than cherry. Like kalih box switches and especially gaterons. Cherry switches are very overrated. I've rarely seen anyone build a keyboard with modern stock cherry switches.
