    Which one is the “quiet” switch? My office is so quiet. Shhhhhh….

  •  

    I was hoping to get this in red but without the number keys but I don't think Kogan stocks them.

  •  

    Cheers OP, grabbed the brown one

  •  

    I have the one one, any chance I can buy the switches separately?

  •  

    I just bought the brown switch one on Saturday with $7 shipping. Damn it

    Is the keyboard any good though?

    • +5 votes

      Not really. I bought one recently as a spare keyboard. When compared to a proper mechanical keyboard with proper cherry MX switches it's actually pretty shit.

        for 40$ price range ?

        •  

          I own way too many mechanical keyboards. The Kogan one is okay but it does feel cheap compared to a decent Cherry keyboard.

          For the price it's very good, so if you have exactly $40 to spend this is probably the best option you can buy. That said, if you want something nice save your money and get something better.

      •  

        Well I just bought one, I have a Leopold with MX blues at home so I can compare when it arrives.

      •  

        Thanks ill save my $40 and put towards something decent

      •  

        What did you find to be wrong with it? Poor responsiveness?

        • +2 votes

          Not OP but it just feels cheap compared to a decent keyboard. The backplate is trash and the switches are less consistent than real Cherry switches.

          It's still great value if you only have $40 to spend, but if you want something nice save your money and buy something better.

      For general use it's completely fine. I use one for work and no complaints here. I couldn't imagine why it couldn't be used for gaming, especially at the $40 price mark.

    I wish they'd use a more subtle font on the keys

  •  

    Got one. Thanks.

  •  

    Finally bought the Brown Switch. Used 3% cashback from CR too :P

  •  

    Where do I download the software to customize lighting?

  •  

    I bought one of these a few weeks back in the brown switches. They sent me a blue switch twice, finally got a brown on the 3rd time. Decent keyboard for the price though

    I've had mine for a while… The "W" key sits lower than all the other keys now, though it still works fine!

    Cheers dowey, grabbed the wireless version for $69 delivered. Might be a good option for those trying to reduce clutter on their desk and a few bucks cheaper than the velocifire board the other day.

    FYI::
    There are 13 different default backlight modes - press FN+INS to switch between.
    To cycle through different colour options, press FN+DEL to switch between.
    User-defined states: FN+1, 2, 3, 4 or 5.
    There are 5 presets which can be customised.
    To customise these presets, pres FN+HM and cycle through RBG options by pressing each desired key.
    To store the new keys, press FN+HM.
    To clear a preset, open the preset and press FN+ESC.
    The above user-defined stated can be activated under any backlight mode, press the above composite keys to enter into the relative game more key lighting mode.

    using it now and its pretty good!

    How is this compared to the cheap razer chroma cynosa?

    Got the brown one earlier today, thanks to your post! :)

    (Your) switches are Red
    (My) Switches are Blue
    Your KB they praised
    My KB they threw

  •  

    Has anyone ever heard of keyloggers being loaded onto a keyboard's firmware at the factory? I wonder about it sometimes.

    •  

      Doesn't sound very practical. How will they exfiltrate the data?

      I suppose you could inject commands. That has been done (USB Rubber Ducky). But it only takes one person to catch it, and only works on one OS at a time, so it only really makes sense as a targeted attack.

  •  

    Shame the browns are out of stock. I bought a Red. Hope the quality isn't too bad for $40

  •  

    Can definitely recommend the blue if you're looking for a cheap keyboard for typing, but obviously that comes with the caveat of it being noisy for a share office space.

    With the red, you're going to be relying more on the quality of the keycaps given the lack of feedback, and they're a bit rubbish.

    Good piece of kit for the price. Good support as well. I bought Red switches a few month back and suddenly E key started to intermittently fail.

    RMA process was quite seamless and they sent a replacement without having to send the old one back.

      Same here, my keyboard started randomly spamming the bottom keys ("shiftzxcvbnm") every few minutes after only 4 months. Big problem, but I sent them an email about it and they sent a new keyboard out two days later.

  •  

    I would have bought brown if not sold out. Blue are noisy, so I'm thinking of getting Red. But it didn't seem like red gets love. Blue is better? (Even though noisy)
    Or Red are good?

      Brown is back in stock now just received an e-mail and ordered. Forgot to use the free shipping code though :/

    Any idea if the TKL version is any good for $35?

    • +1 vote

      TKL is not full RGB, will literally look like the image posted. But it is the same switches and should feel pretty much the same.

  •  

    Dang I wanted the brown one, been waiting for this to be posted again and missed it because of work! Blast haha.

  •  

    Weird - the brown is back in stock, but you can't apply the coupon code to it.

    • +1 vote

      You actually can, add that and another colour to cart- then add the code and remove the item you don't want. An irritating extra step, but works

      • +2 votes

        I think they've added the Brown now to the promotion again. It appears to be working. I tried what you said above before and it just re-added shipping. Coupon code now appears to work for the Brown.

    •  

      Oh snap.. I saw they were out of stock and ordered the red switch. I never thought to check on the brown again.

  •  

    Um, so is noise an issue with all coloured keyboards? I'm not a gamer, just looking for a feel good pretty coloured keyboard for a quiet office…

    What about this one?

    Some warnings - many of us in the office bought these in a similar deal 6 months ago (say 8 keyboards?). Out of the box, 2 of them didn't work though we managed to get them replaced under warranty without too much difficulty (they wanted us to video the fault as evidence - like pressing the key and nothing appearing on screen? very odd). 6 months on, an additional one has been replaced under warranty and one more has started to chatter sporadically (press a key and either get a double/triple, or none at all). (So that's 4/8 that have either been replaced under warranty or are starting to fail). The browns are very noisy, even with O-rings: there is an echoing ping sound on the upstroke if you are not careful to press the keys only very lightly, and the O-rings only help with the bottoming sound out on the downstroke. (Another colleague has a Ducky with browns which is significantly quieter). I think overall the QA is very poor on these items. On the plus side, the light effects are pretty fun (like having a ripple of light radiating out whenever you press a key…) So: only good if you want to test out a mechanical keyboard cheaply to see if you want to upgrade soon after to an expensive one (or decide they're not for you). But essentially don't expect them to last beyond a few months.

      Holy shit thanks for this. My one hasn't skipped a beat, there's another in the office with no complaints. Maybe a bad batch?

  •  

    I ordered the Brown last night. I'm hoping it is clicky, but quieter than the Blue (at least thats how I understand it to be).

    Noise isn't the issue, I just don't want it triggering my microphone (Discord) on online games.

  •  

    Giving my blue keyboard from a previous deal to my nephew and ordered one with browns. The blues are just too loud to pass the wife approval score.

    For anyone that is interested but is unsure, as feel goes the blue switches on these are actually pretty good. There is a difference between these and an old Corsair cherry keyboard I used to have, but for me it's not massive and you get used to it really quickly.

  •  

    The browns actually feel really good, very close to the omrons in my g613.
