I personally have not used one of those and don't remember much about them from memory except for people hating those orange keycaps and some disliking the enter/backspace. If you are looking for a cheap ALPS keyboards the Ducky XM are a good choice.

This thread has some info:

From this short review, it sounds cheaply made. I would go for a bigger brand name that is known for quality unless that isn't what you're looking for. Of course, a better name means more money and I have no idea what your budget is. I also don't know if you want ALPs or Cherry switches. I'm not as familiar with ALP switches than cherries.
