What size do you want? 100%, 80% 75% 65% 60% ?

Assume you also want linear switches. Do you have a preference there?

Welcome to mechanical keyboards, a bottomless pit for money.

Go into the shops and try a few keyboards.

See which switches you prefer. Type a sentence. See which is best.

I’d say you should look at the £80 to £100 range for keyboards because £50 means the manufacturer cuts a lot of corners.

Keychron K10 with RGB is £87

With RGB, Gateron mechanical hot swappable and aluminium backplate (all are desirable traits) is £107 but it's US layout only by the looks of things.

DAS makes good keyboards and is not RGB but on sale https://www.overclockers.co.uk/das-...y-mx-brown-white-led-uk-layout-kb-007-ds.html

I like Ducky KBs. When I emigrated from SA to the UK, I brought with my Ducky one2 keyboard that my ex said i'd spent too much money on. It's still reliable and works fine till today (using it right now), unlike my ex
