Just for anyone who will might look at this thread later
I'm in Beijing and I did find some mechanical keyboards.
They are indeed at 电脑城市 (diannaochengshi, computer city). You can get to it easily through the subway stop 中关村 (zhongguancun) on line 4.
Ask for 机械键盘 (jixiejianpan). They're not super cheap though
Cheapest that I have seen is Cherry branded standard 104 key keyboards with MX blacks for about 300 - 350 rmb, which is about $50, not bad. Others are not much cheaper than in the US. If you're interested in trying keyboards, they will let you try a bit.
Also, there is a ton of cool hardware being sold at computer city. I think most members of OC.net will be interested in taking a stroll. You can find a lot of used older processors at okay prices, and there are a lot of shops with a lot of nice hardware to look at. I took a quick look around and saw almost 10 G1 sniper m5s and some lighted water cooling setups.
Cool stuff but there's a hefty (30%+) import tax so if you live in the US, it's probably not worth it to buy anything.
Oh yeah, I saw some OEM Super Flower power supplies, even some golden dragon series. Didn't ask for prices since I don't even know what OEM SF power supplies cost but they were cool to see. I didn't see any Leadex platform power supplies but I didn't really look hard.
I saw an EIZO store that I did not go into and some other name brand monitor stores if you'd be interested in looking at some IPS panels. I kept an eye out for Korean IPSs but didn't see any.
If it weren't for the import taxes, I would give this a 10/10 must see for an OC.net member.Edited by SanguineDrone - 8/11/13 at 7:59pm
