MX red switch keyboards? [Already Ordered] - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Yah you scored, or maybe they weren't as hard to find then. Idk but right now people are gouging the hell out of them. So did you pay that price with the white keycaps? If so you got a crazy deal because those alone are 50 bucks. Btw how do those keycaps feel? Do they have a slight texture to them or are they slick?

Even though op said doesn't care for backlighting, I think the ducky shining would be a good choice. I have the one with reds and white leds and it's an amazing keyboard. I think I paid $160 shipped from tiger imports.

Yah thats pretty crazy to me. You must have spotted it as soon as it was posted. I have that exact same set of caps on the way and they cost me 50 bucks. Brand new filco cost me $140.

Nice deal.
And back OT. OP grab the Leo!!!

I really appreciate everyone's comments and suggestions.
I ended up grabing the TKL Leopold Cherry MX red- FC200RR.
the keyboard should arrive in the next day or two if all goes well.
Im also hoping that it would look better in person compared to the pics since im not really a fan of the rounded edges.



this will be my first try on the mx reds and it would be my first TKL keyboard.

I will +rep everone in this thread who made suggestions as soon as i get on a pc.

Hehe, I like the rounded edges on that board tongue.gif

Leopold will be releasing a refresh sometime this year, and the chassis will not have rounded edges if that's something you're interested in.

Thank you for your heads up.. I sent elitekeyboards an email saying that i want to cancel my order. I dont know if they will let me do it or not. but apparently if they read my email prior shipping it to me. That would be nice.
In that case i think i will be leaning more towards the Rosewill.

-Leopold ($99 before shipping)
-Rosewill ($99 before shipping)
I personally recommend the Ducky out all of those if you don't mind paying a tad more than $150 with shipping included.

I just noticed that Amazon is selling the K90 for $116 new (I'm in the market for a Red board at the moment.)

Why did you change your mind? The keyboard looks great in person.
