      They talked about Bloody a few years back, however Bloody is in more of a budget tier than they are on the mid spec.

      What about the Sharkoon Skiller SGK3? It's still a budget gaming keyboard which is high quality and has some nice features too. It also has rgb features.

        Why aren't the Velocifire keyboards included in this (or the previous cheap mechanical keyboards) video? They're solidly built, backlit, and use Outemu switches.

          I'm gonna come out and say dont get Romer G switches. I've got a g910 Orion spark with romer g switches and I really dont like it. At first it was great with mild key stabilization issues but quickly escalated when the small plastic legs that keep the key caps in place on the switch started breaking during normal use. Expect this issue with keys you use often like wasd and space. While you can get new key caps I haven't hat luck pulling broken legs out of the switch with anything.

                              You left out the Cooler Master CK series boards. I think even the 552 is within budget. And those pretty good boards. I use 550s at work and at home too.

                                          It's 2019, you can get a ten keyless with switches as good as cherry for less than the price of these. There isn't an excuse for selling non-mechanical keyboards other than padding your profit margin. There are much better options avilable that are much cheaper, but they don't have the big names behind them. I'd take a chinese keyboard with switches and add in pbt keycaps and still come out having spent less money than these for a much better gaming experience.

                                                  Seems like only the RED variant of logitech g610 orion is on that price mark. The brown is nowhere near there.....
