Need keyboard under $85

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a mechanical keyboard for $85 or less with Cherry Red switches. It must be available somewhere that takes PayPal. Media keys and the numbpad is a big plus for me but not a deal breaker. What should I get?

The Rosewill RK-9000RE is on sale for $80 which I think is a good choice: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823201044 however it has no media keys.

The cheapest I see with media keys is $90 for a corsair K60 on amazon but that is not fully mechanical which I heard annoys quite a few of it's owners.
