Monoprice Mechanical Keyboards

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is the right place to put this post, I assume so since it is about a keyboard!

Monoprice is going to be distributing a mechanical gaming board with red back-lighting judging by the picture!

Look at the bottom right!

I'm curious to know how much and what the quality is.

I dunno, that looks awfully like the qpad mk-85:

It's a qpad/xarmor/blahblahblah.

I'm going to guess it will be priced really good and quality too based on the various products I've got through them over the years.

I've been looking at mechanical keyboards this past week and decided to get a non back-lit version if none of the lighted ones wasn't on sale. This is looking good biggrin.gif

If you look at the previous post its just a rebrand of a board already on the market. Which from what I have read is fairly unpopular and not that great of quality. But if your on a low budget I guess its worth a look.

It's not just a rebranded keyboard. Sure they outsourced the enclosure but that's where it ends. Monoprice is known for quality for a reason and I actually own this board and love it. All you have to do is look at their spec sheet on their website to know it's not a rebranded board. I've saved you the time and you can see for yourself how this board is great and kicks the crap out of the xarmor one.
You all are quick to judge, maybe you should research before you spit out crap.

Looks exactly the same as whoever the OEM is that makes keyboards for MaxKeyboard's Nighthawk series. I don't have much information on either the Monoprice or Max keyboard though aside from the fact that they look identical (and in the case of the customizable Nighthawk, rather appealing).
