I'm currently in China and I have decided to buy my first keyboard over $5 and get a mechanical keyboard with cheery blue switches and a number pad. I would like to pay as little as possible while still getting a solid, high quality product. I noticed you guys have some experience buying foreign keyboards from taobao and I was wondering if anyone knew about these two keyboards and which, if any, is worth buying. Also if anyone knows about a different reasonably inexpensive foreign keyboard I can buy on taobao I am open to suggestions. These are just the only two that I found doing a quick search for cherry blue switches. (青轴).
I tried to post this with links to the products but the forum wouldn't let me.
Noppoo Choc, black, standard rollover, $60
Noppoo Choc PRO, black, n-key rollover, $70
PLU ML-G3000, black. Standard rollover $60, n-key rollover, $70.
I am fairly sure the only difference between the Noppoo Choc and Noppoo Choc PRO is the rollover, but feel free to correct me if I am wrong. Do you guys think that n-key rollover is worth having? I don't think it would be terribly useful however if I'm already going to pay $60 for a keyboard an extra $10 for it does not seem outrageous. Is the n-key rollover over usb or just ps/2?
