Where can I buy cheap mech kb? - Page 4

post #31 of 32
Many people pay a pretty penny for Cherry MX Blue keyboards, so your best bet for finding a cheap one would most likely be rummaging through computer waste. I've actually found some good keyboards in the trash before.

You can pick up a keyboard with MX blacks for relatively cheap off ebay if you aren't in the mood for hunting down MX blues, but they aren't clicky or tactile if that's what you're looking for. They're perfectly good switches though.

For the MX Browns, I've seen you all have been looking at the Compaq MX11800 keyboards. I'm using one of those right now. I wouldn't recommend paying more than $30 for one of those. In addition, another thing to watch out for with those keyboards is on some, the trackball does not work reliably when you start up the computer. But the keyboard part of them usually works great.

I am using a Compaq 11800 with MX brown switches and I think it's very good.

For someone wants a heavier typing experience, IBM model M is a candidate.
