      option is there, that's on you for not driving down 9 hours to pick it up

    What are the odds I use the keys 60 million times in 2 years? If not why isn't the warranty longer?

    • +5 votes

      the keys might be rated to 60 million presses, but the rest of the keyboard isn't.

    Anyone know how this compares to the kogan mechanical keyboards?

    •  

      Kogan keyboards suck so much. I got the $20 one. Feels so clunky to type on, I rather just use my laptop KB.

  •  

    Decent deal but the design looks near identical to the Kogan keyboard.

    I wished there are red switches at $20

  •  

    Seems like they've got a few more, this one is half the price of Centre Com

    •  

      They look exactly the same though, can you spot the difference?

    How good are the blue keys on there entry level mechanical keyboards. I'm in the market for a new keyboard and never owned a mechanical keyboard. So unsure of all the different key colour types.

      buy now repent later :)

      It says Cherry MX blues. If that's true then they'd be good quality, but given how vague they are about it and because they only actually mention that in one spot I'm sceptical.

      Blues are very loud.

        Where does it say Cherry MX?

        •  

          Very bottom of the page but it is glaringly absent from mention in all other locations the switch colour is mentioned

            @BrokeCamel: The Cherry switch claim only shows up on the mobile version of the website. For a desktop browser, that entire table at the bottom of the page doesn't show.

            Mwave supplied the false claim that the keyboard has Cherry switches, the keyboard's manufacturer doesn't claim that.

        Not Cherry MX. The same page also says it has a "Nano USB receiver", when it's a wired keyboard. As usual, Mwave know very little about the products they sell, always do your own research before buying anything from them. To be fair, all of their claims were copied direct from the Rapoo website.

        Here is the manufacturer's product page: https://www.rapoo-eu.com/product/v500-pro/
        If you play the video on that page (it's 30 seconds long), they show a close-up of the switches with the keycaps removed. Each switch has "Rapoo" stencilled on it, so they're Rapoo-brand blue switches.

        Here's a review: https://www.rapoo-eu.com/product/v500-pro

        • Lighting isn't RGB, it's fixed in the colours you see in the picture. You can adjust four levels of brightness, and can select the backlight between off/constant on/breathing modes.
        • no driver is available for download.
        • comes with a key cap puller

        Here's a video review on Youtube, 9 minutes long. Appears to be a British 105-key variant, has a different-shape enter key, has the backslash key added between the left shift and Z keys, and an extra key to the left of the enter key: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9mFDwSt7vM

          Jeez I'm cancelling my order. So deceptive the ad

    •  

      they're good if you like your key presses loud and tactile. maybe not so good for the people around you ;)

    Typing this comment on a Cherry MX blue keyboard and if it's anything similar, it will be very loud
