If you're looking for a 75%, can recommend this...
Keycool 84 keys is what I use at work. Switches are original cherry so they're robust. The keyboard has no frills and performs solidly for the past 2 year. Don't know what's your definition of "Cheap" but $70+ for Cherry MX switches keyboard is considered cheap to me.

They also have BT version for a bit more $$.

Keycool 84. Cherry switches. Taobao ship over.

I'm currently using a Keycool 84 too! The BT version though using it wired. Really good for a starter. Got myself the cherry switches as well. Absolutely love the 84 key layout.

My Coolermaster RGB Keyboard has a faulty RGB after just 3 months.
Have to go Ban Leong and try to RMA...

Will update on how bad the experience is. Haha.

Update: went down Ubi 4. So far away, Ulu place... Got few ppl infront of me, all the seats occupied. Tiny place, can't even let 10 ppl to sit down. So sent in and waited 20 mins, after that, got 1 to 1 exchange. Wish the place bigger to accommodate more ppl la. So-so experience.
