Checked revieuws of this keyboard. Not sure why they are all positive. It does not bring anything special to the table at all. The price is overtop hyped. Switches on this are subjective. you get funtionality for things that are not really relevant. Replaceble switches..... they shouldnt break with in 2 years plus even with 8 hours per day and 7 days a weak. If they break you should get maybe warrenty. So if it breaks after that would they still be available? And most people would switch keyboards between 2 to 4 years.
I would like a basic keyboard with nice typing switches with backlight key caps for nice price :-)
Welcome to the mechanical keyboard hobby. The case of this keyboard is CNC milled aluminum, which is an expensive premium process. Hotswap switches may not be relevant to you, but to customizers and modders it's an extremely convenient alternative to desoldering and reassembling the keyboard every time. Although you may be fine with one switch, enthusiasts are constantly trying out new designs and specifications, as well as designing and producing their own. Even the keys on this boards are substantially better made as they are produced with 2 colors of PBT, rather than thin wobbly single layer ABS that most consumer grade keycaps are made from. Although the mass consumer might discard their keyboards frequently, the enthusiasts here will tell you stories of how they've kept their favorite keyboard running for a decade, or refurbished one that is older than they are.
You say you want a basic consumer keyboard and there are dozens if not hundreds of places to find those. If you want to put more pride and personal investment in YOUR keyboard, the majority of the options available here are a good start and you are always welcome to join if ever you feel the desire to.
@ Vermilione, Thank you for your response. I understand your point of vieuw. Untill this day I didnt find the keyboard fits me. I dont really care about prices. But I do check functionallity wich is used on a daily base and not for options that I might use once per week. Buy options you do not need or you have to buy beacuse you want that particular keyboard. but i do understand style, use, preference is all subjective.
You actually don't have to buy anything you don't want with this board. They sell a barebones version that ships without switches and keycaps.
