Thread: Cheap Keyboard

    Question Cheap Keyboard

    Hi All,

    Looking for some advice I am after a cheap keyboard for gaming and have back lit keys if possible. It would need to be from amazon.co.uk as I have £25 voucher. (wow what a cheapskate)

    I was wondering if any of you have delved in the bargain department recently.

    Thanks

    Dean

    It's not exactly cheap but it's a no frills mechanical keyboard that I have owned for several years and can recommend highly. At £70 including your voucher it's a bargain. Of course you can get non mechanical keyboards much cheaper but I have no experience of them and so can't make a recommendation.

    There are two rules for being awesome:

    1. Always hold something back.

    There is a good one from Amazon, a Chinese knock-off mechanical.
    A Rii K63c and only £20.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Rii-Mechani...words=rii+k63c

    Liberator just bought one and seems to be happy with it, but then he's easily pleased
    I do exactly what the little voices tell me to.

    PC Specs:- Black box with some fans that go whirrr, a few lights, things inside that get warm, headphones, keyboard (a clicky one), mouse (with buttons and no squeak), disks (2-off SSD and HDD) and a monitor of sufficient proportions.

    I got it as a portable one, be aware that they are blue clicky switches and if you wanted to put dampers on you would need 3 per key because of the cap travel.

    Reviewed here, but with green LED's.
