I need your help! I’m looking for mechanical keyboards.

 Share

Hi everyone! 

 

I need to upgrade from my Redragon Membrane keyboard to a mechanical keyboard. I found a Razer TKL keyboard which I’m ready to buy, but I would like to see other options from the community since I heard some bad things about razer’s products.

Information:

Max price: 65USD (I can try to go to 70)

 

Location: United States 

 

Must be TKL keyboard (not even 60% mechanical, doing other things then just game and won’t work well with Minecraft pvp). Can be any switch, but I prefer brown and blue’s.

 

Must be on amazon.

 

 

Thank you so much!

Honestly, the thing these fancier brands have over no name brands isn't much, aside from sometimes terrible drivers and custom key switches which are usually trash.

I wouldn't have qualms about buying a cheaper mech keyboard like a Red Dragon one.

Yeah I totally get why you would say that. My friend has this $120 Razer mouse and it broke after 8 months. The Razer keyboard I found looks really nice and perfect for what I need, but I don’t plan to replace the keyboard I get for a couple of years which was why I came here looking for recommendations I can be pointed to. I could just go with the Redragon Kumara, but I wanted to see if anyone knew any TKL’s that is both reliable and affordable. Still going to search everywhere I can though before making a purchase.

Honestly I would buy based on budget and looks. If I wanted a TKL, I would probably go for a Rantopad MXX because I think it looks sweet. Even the cheapest shittest membrane KBs last for years, so a mech board won't die unless you pour a mug of coffee over it or something.
