Tiger Import vs mechanicalkeyboards
« on: Thu, 13 June 2013, 15:01:17 »
Is the stock the same?  Will there ever be keyboards in stock at one and not the other?  I actually didn't even realize they were the same company until I bought something off mechanicalkeyboard.com and the payment goes to tiger import.

The stock should be the same, since its the same company.

Stock seems to be the same but the cost is a few dollars higher on the MK site versus Tiger Imports.  Not sure why.

MK recently started doing 'Free Shipping' which means they added the $9 shipping charge into the price of the keyboards basically.

Thanks!  I noticed it as far back as beginning of May.  Makes sense.

Stock is the same with some small exceptions.

1) There are a few more SKUs on MechanicalKeyboards.com
2) MK will have 'Just in' stock listed about 5 minutes before Tiger will (for those using progs or slamming the F5 button)
MechanicalKeyboards.com - What do you type on?

I think it's a different return policy as well. Pay a little more but doesn't have the 'reimburse us for free shipping' clause.
