Default Need a new keyboard

Smashed my trusty old Logitech LX710 yesterday and desperately need a new one. I had two cheap replacements but they're weird as fuck. Clicky keys and odd placement.

Anything decent knocking about? The logitech one must have been older than I thought as the price of keyboards now is ridiculous.

Have seen them for up to 250

Fifty or so is my absolute limit. Want to get as close to this as possible

They're not (really) cheap and clicky are they?

Oh my god, 'clicky'??

Every time you post one of these threads you end up buying the wrong thing at an inflated price. Pls listen this time.

You will be doing some gaming with the keyboard, yes? Even if not, typing on a mechanical keyboard is miles better than the usual soft touch shite.

You get a choice of key switches, designated by colour, that provide differing levels of clickiness and noise. For you, blue is the one to avoid and cherry MX brown is the quietest/least clicky.

The accuracy of mechanical keyboards is superb and ideal for FPS games.

Have a browse through this:

Gateron switches are aftermarket, cheaper, versions of the Cherry industry standard but they are fine. Watch out for 'mechanical feel' keyboards - lies.

I use a Ducky tenkeyless (no numpad) for gaming to get closer to my mouse hand and save space. Your call.

GOODBYE.

Edit, just saw your budget. Buy this:
