    If its from Kogan don't forget to ask for the free duct tape to hold it together when you return it.

      They're actually really solid keyboards. Was using one for a year and didn't let me down at all.

        i got a gaming monitor and it came with a couple of stuck pixels. Asked for warranty but they stopped replying to my emails.

      My left shift can get stuck a bit when gaming (csgo) otherwise it's a nice keyboard… Really disappointed with that shift key though

      Mine came with 4 faulty keys that would not light up. To top it all off Kogan refused to give a refund, they offered store credit with 1yr expiry.

        Pretty sure that's illegal of them to do.

        If it's faulty by law they must give you a refund

    Seems like a rebadged Drevo Tyrfing V2 - which would be a good price if so (pending on delivery cost).

    Yeah so bought these from the last deal and within a few days the whole row from Caps Lock to Enter stuck on red. Asked for a refund. Got the refund plus they sent me a new Keyboard and told me I could keep the faulty one.

    Also these blues seem louder than the MX Blues i had in my corsair k70

    Got one last year during a sale and it's a really nice keyboard to use with great lighting effects and very solid - but it's incredibly loud and the keys are quite heavy to press compared to other blue keyswitches like the Razor Blackwidow I had a bit of time with.

    I went back to a Logitech G710 with brown switches a few weeks after getting the Kogan one. It was just too loud.

    Looks like the new one is US layout as opposed to the UK layout in the previous deals.

    • +1 vote

      That is what i'm hoping for…..

    •  

      Lived the last 11yrs in the UK & grown used to the UK layout, even though back in Oz now. The Enter key (feels) larger which is easier for programming.

        I think the Amiga 500 was the last time dealt with a big enter key…..

      •  

        But the slash and pipe are in the wrong spot, which is much worse for programming.

        I've never seen the point of the double height enter (return) key, it's already a large key - and it's on the 'home' row of the keyboard so it shouldn't be any problem to hit it.

    I got one of these last deal and it works fine, as long as you're ok with your typing sounding like a passing freight train.
    Only minor gripe is the functions of the function keys aren't backlit along with the rest of the characters.

    I have two Corsair Gaming Strafe RGB keyboards that use cherry mx brown and Cherry MX Silent (Clear) keys :)

    both are great. NOT a fan of blue as they are too noisy

    These two colours still make allot of noise. More then any membrane keyboard does.. No idea why people would want even more sound

    •  

      FYI they are Outemu so even louder then the cherry counterpart :)

      Keyboard enthusiasts are a pretty eccentric bunch, check out https://old.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/ some time if you're actually interested, the hobby starts to get super expensive once you start wanting to customise things.

      For people who write copy or code or do things of that nature for a living, typically literally hundreds of thousands of characters a week, it can kinda make sense. Like buying an expensive office chair if you sit down at work all day. Having something with a tactile feel and response which perfectly suits your typing style would also make your job a lot easier in that kind of situation.

  •  

    I have one of these, loud but i really like it.

  •  

    Got this for $20 with my Kogan gift card from the previous Kogan price error. Thanks!

    keycap font doesn't do it for me. But upvoted anyway.

    •  

      Buy cheap keyboard and grab a keycap set off ebay(Yes I realise this might be too much effort :P )

      • +5 votes

        Keycap sets are actually not that cheap. A full set of keycaps would be more than this whole keyboard.

        •  

          I'v found them for under $17 delivered, but I don't know what your preference in colour or quality is:) (I was searching ebay before I made that comment and looked at the examples on youtube)

  •  

    Got one in the last deal. About 7 keys towards the top left of the keyboard just died after a month and it became unusable. Got a refund and turfed the keyboard.

    I’m still keen on grabbing another though especially as it’s a US layout.

    It was my first experience with a mechanical and I quite liked it.

    What are people's experience with key chatter on mechanical keyboards?

    I have a Gamdias Hermes keyboard with Cherry MX blue switches that chattered horribly on multiple keys after a couple of month or so. Currently using a Logitech G810 (Romer-G switches) for 1.5 years and it's still functioning well. However a quick Google search suggests that others have experienced chattering with the G810 as well so it sounds like a lottery to me. What makes it worse is that people don't seem to understand what causes key chatter to begin with. If most mechanical keyboards use Cherry MX switches, what distinguishes one from another in preventing key chatter? The manufacturer's debouncing circuit design?

    Given the price of mechanical keyboards, getting key chatter feels like quite a betrayal since durability was one of the supposed advantages over membrane keyboards.

    •  

      At least on the longer keys, chatter is often due to the stabiliser bars being slightly loose. Space bar is the worst offender when this is the case.

    I use this keyboard and it's not bad. However, it is pretty loud and my friends have told me that they can hear me press my keys over discord. Other than that, I haven't had any issues with the keyboard.

  •  

    got this last time, anyone else had their numlock light stop working?

  •  

    hate to be a jv, but whats the normal price? or is 39 normal

  •  

    Bought this on the last deal - my feedback:

    • Extremely loud
    • Colours and inbuilt patterns are pretty
    • The keyboard intermittently stopped working after 2 months
    • Kogan provided full refund and let me keep the faulty keyboard

    Would not recommend.

  •  

    Still holding out for a ducky set… I've never used a mechanical unless I can count the model M that didn't belong to me all those years ago. Will the quality and finish of a premium priced brand, e.g. ducky be a significant difference to this one?

      Given how many people on ITT have mentioned hardware malfunctions with the ones they bought last time, I think it's safe to say that the quality is low.

      Personally, I've been using a Deck Hassium at work (IT professional) for almost 4 years now (MX Browns) and it's still perfect.

    I bought 2 of these last time, where you could get them for $19 shipped…. 1 was fine (and is still fine) , the other had a fairly hideous rattle in it, so I pulled it all apart and found a huge chunk of solder rattling around on the pcb.

    Took it out, it's also been fine since.

    The keys are heavy though… And require very deliberate presses.

    Quality control seems almost non-existent but for $39 delivered it might be worth a chance for some.

    Edit: the pictures don't show that the boards have a huge, ugly Kogan logo above the D-pad…. I removed both mine and it looks nicer.

    •  

      I bought one in the last deal and they had removed the Kogan logo - only the underside has a Kogan sticker with model number etc.

    Does anyone know if their rgb mouse is also decent? Thanks

    Does adding o-rings reduce the loudness much?

    • +1 vote

      It does, but not that much really - my experience is with brown and black switches though - I won't touch blue.

      Sadly every single comment in this thread seems to be about the blue switches, but I'd love to hear if anyone bought the red switches last time and has any comments.

      Not that these ones don't ship til April 29.

      •  

        The Blue switch one ships on April 26 now… I think the dates are dynamic based on volume of orders. It was April 11 originally

  •  

    Thanks.. Great timing as I was looking for one of these and thinking how much I regretted not jumping on the last deal.

    Ordered a brown switch one

  •  

    just made an order, received an email saying earliest despatch date will be 26th Apr with a $10 voucher (minimum spend $50). useless. typical Kogan stuffs. not to bother to complain, just canceled.

  •  

    Cancelled my blue and ordered brown and red. Hope they're as good as the first batch. So far it just says payment processed.

    I note these are the ones which can be customized with different light patterns. The last batch weren't customizable, but had more standard abbreviations for page up/page down.

    I am typing this message right now with the Blue switch version of this keyboard. It annoys the ABSOLUTE FK out of everyone near me at work. I get constant complaints about it. So if you want to annoy people at work get the Blue switch version.

    I had 0 problems with the keyboard.

    I am going to go ahead and order a Brown switch one now because as funny as it is annoying people, I do feel a little bad.

  •  

    thanks got the reds see if theyre any good.

  •  

    Shipping date says 29th now. I'm sure it was 26th before. Waiting game to see what happens.

    I got a refund in my account on my cancelled blues, so that's good.

  •  

    I just got a 10 credit email because they aren't sending mine out until next Friday
