Mechanical Keyboard Suggestion

Hey guys,

I spilled liquid on my tvs keyboard and it went kaput. I have sent the keyboard for RMA but I felt that I missed to upgrade my keyboard during my rig upgrade. I'm now looking for a premium mechanical keyboard with MX Cherry Brown keys. I'm leaning towards Corsair K70 LUX RGB. Does anybody here have it? Please also let me know if any other recommendation. My maximum budget for the keyboard is 14K. Issue with K70 is that it is unavailable in Lamington road and no one is going to restock it before the end of the next month. I'm getting that keyboard for 14K using Amazon global. Only problem with that way is that I'll need to claim warranty by sending the product to Taiwan in case of any issues. I won't be served locally here due to the distinction given to India. Let me know. Thanks!

Sorry for coming to this topic but I am in the same situation. The problem is where are the mechanical keyboards in them e-commerce websites? Just last year almost all the CM QuickFire keyboards were available, Ultimate being my favourite, then there were all the Corsair ones available too, I mean in Flipkart at least all of those were in stock, but now NONE! Nor Amazon, ITDepot, Itwares, Prime, basically I am out of sites now! Only local MD Computer's site has a bunch, like OP mentioned, the K70 LUX, with Cherry Red though, not Brown, and price is within 9k too. I guess that's the only option to go for. And forget about Logitech, none of them are available anywhere! Jeez!

If anyone knows a place ONLINE, then kindly inform.

No problem. Also, no one is interested to restock any keyboard in Lamington Road due to Diwali. MD computers have the non-RGB model of K70 Lux in stock. I'm looking for the RGB model.

Sunil, I did not expect such a suggestion from you considering you are a senior member of our forum. Do you want me to spend 10k on a clone of the corsair keyboard? Btw, Amazon USA is selling that keyboard only for $66.43 and import duty+shipping will take it to around 92 USD. Still nearly twice as cheaper than the Cloudtail listing. I will skip this keyboard, sorry.

Edit: The price was for Non-RGB model. RGB model from Amazon USA still costs 2K cheaper than the cloudtail listing.

Sorry buddy.
You wanted RGB version right.
I think nobody is selling RGB mech keyboards.

Thanks for this suggestion. Newer logitech keyboards uses Romer-G keys which I'm not fond of. I'm only looking for Cherry MX Brown keys for the new keyboard. I think my best option is to wait till Black friday and get it from USA. I feel the sales of these expensive keyboards aren't very great here. So, no one is much interested to stock different keyboards with different types of keys. Mostly, I'm seeing Cherry Red and blue keys everywhere. Browns are difficult to get here.

Sent email yesterday to indiaservice at corsair, and they clearly mentioned there are no Cherry Brown available with them, only Cheery Speed. Called MD then, they confirmed both K70 and K95 come with Cherry Red, no Brown there either.

Don't know which to choose now, either Blue or Red. I tried a friend's K60 Reds today, and I didn't dislike it much, there is no tactile feedback at all, but it didn't feel mushy by any means. But maybe I could like the Blues with its solid feedback, who knows, its sound is the most annoying thing I think. If I don't need to bottom out the Blues, if its possible, then I think I can manage. If anyone uses the Blue for gaming please mention here your experience.

I had talked to MD yesterday as well as and they said they won't be importing any keyboards based on MX Cherry Brown keys at all. From your messages on the forum, it feels you love typing a lot. You can't go wrong with Cherry Blue as they are typer's paradise. Only thing you have to worry is about the sound and if you are in home environment then rest assured that people in the same room won't be able to sleep at night. :p I have not tried the red keys but no tactile feedback is no fun for me. You can refer to this video comparison as it highlights everything well. Mechanical Keyboard Buyers Guide: Cherry MX Red, Brown, Blue, Green & Buckling Springs - YouTub

Yeah, finally I had the luck to try out both Reds and Blues, from two of my different friends' keyboards, K70 Red and CM QuickFire Blue (this guy bought it when I suggested the same couple of years ago and that time all the mechanical were available on FK), and I am going with the Reds. Jeez, the Blue sounds really loud when type in full flow, really really loud. As much as I like the tactile and clickity-clack or whatever its called I can't bear that sound. So Red it is for me, too soft, but whatever. Will get the K70 LUX Red, simple one, no RGB.

I hope you are able to find your desired keyboard as well, but you gotta go offline, cause nothing available online anyway, no Browns at least.

Good luck with the purchase. You know it's other way round for me with the blue keys. I like the loud sound and tactile feel very much. I've already tried with a few shops at Lamington road with no success. So, I've decided to wait for Black Friday and import the product through Amazon USA. I'm sure this keyboard will go on sale then.

Hey have you bought any board yet? I just saw Logitech's tweet today that they have launched the G610 in India today, and found it on Amazon for a just 8300 or something and those are the Cherry Browns. But the problem is it doesn't come with a wrist rest! Now I am torn between this and the K70! I don't think I could live without a wrist rest, and custom ones might not fit properly either!

Any suggestions on your suggestion seeking topic? :lol:

Not yet. I'm waiting for Black Friday to come and then I'll purchase K70 keyboard via Amazon Global. Logitech G610 is a VERY GOOD built keyboard and comes with Cherry Keys instead of G-Romero. That's good but these negatives turns me off.

1. No RGB.
2. No Aluminum body as K70.
3. No Wrist-rest.

I haven't found any good alternative to K70 Lux RGB yet. Man, just look at the side by side comparisons of other keyboards with K70. The aluminum finish blows everything out of water. I'm also subscribed to Slickdeals and will let you know first if any good deal comes up.

Ah well just informing you that I have bought the Red K70 LUX yesterday. Using it now, nice. But the keys are typically soft, keystrokes are registered way too easily, something I have to get used to. I hope you get a good deal on something you desire, that's all.

Congratulations! You'll get used to it. I was having a very hard time with my accuracy when I had first started typing on a mechanical keyboard with cherry blue keys. In time, my accuracy restored to normal but of course with a greater typing speed. :D

What about clicking sound....Normal?

Clicking sound? You mean the sound of the Red keys? Well they are much much louder than my membrane, G15, I mean if you bottom them out that is, but even if you don't they are not "quiet" by any means, probably the most silent cherry, but not comparable with membranes I think. But the feeling of the keys is simple awesome. It feels like I can't type enough on this :D Should use for my office LOL.

PS: My typing speed and typos have taken a huge hit really. From average of ~62 WPM I am now at ~55 WPM or something, and with lot more typos. I know I know, more time will fix it... but yeah...

Is that TVS eGold? If it's under warranty, you can get a free replacement like I did.

You won't find any silent cherry keyboard in that budget. There is a Corsair keyboard with MX Silent keys which goes for 10K.

NOt tvs gold ordinary keyboard for 300 rs..bought urgently.


Corsair keyboard Silent keys 10k...is over my budget.


Finally in my list....Circle Adroit X 7C and Asus Cerberus Keyboard both are similar function both are inspired by Cooler Master Devastators.

Definitely, Circle Adroit X 7C is better. Although, I have no idea of the quality of it's keyboard and service support.

Edit: Amazon reviews looks good. I don't see any harm in trying out this keyboard.
