U better try Logitech and Corsair mech kb, the g810 has a different mech key. Corsair uses cherry.

I personally find the g810 isn't smooth and abit stiff

I used to use a Filco Majestouch 2 with Cherry MX red switches. Now, I use a Leopold FC660C and am looking to my next Topre keyboard - possibly a Realforce 87UB with 55g uniform actuation. Once you go Topre, you can never go back! but oh, what an expensive hobby this is becoming...

Hi guys, I have been thinking about getting a mechanical keyboard but cannot really justify the price tag to myself.

What are some affordable mechanical keyboard models? No need to be backlit, no need media and macro keys. I just need a simple keyboard for typing and light gaming. Preferably, to have keys near mx blue but quieter if possible.
Thanks in advance!
One of the cheapest KB around using Cherry MX switches (blue in this case). Singapore brand, also sold in Challenger:
http://www.lazada.sg/mka-7cblue-9661734.html


If you prefer red or brown switches (quieter) then following sale items are really good deals:
http://www.lazada.sg/coolermaster-qu...-10014068.html
http://www.lazada.sg/coolermaster-qu...-10014069.html

If you don't mind tiong brand then more cheap KBs using Cherry MX switches:
http://www.lazada.sg/ajazz-firstbloo...t-7914120.html
http://www.lazada.sg/ajazz-firstbloo...t-7914132.html

Whats more there are plenty of promo codes available for Lazada where you can get between $5-15 off.

39RMB for shipping is about right for small parcels. TaoBao shipping is much cheaper compared to US forwarders.
