1 yellow axis, rapoo independent development machinery, single-shaft life up to 50 million, as with cherry Hei axis, 2mm trigger travel, 50g triggering pressure touch, freely, let you in a long time in a competitive game against nor fingers ache.

Price – 2, break the lucrative monopoly of the mechanical axis, promoting the popularity of mechanical keyboard.

3, new feel – according to Oriental design, better suited to oriental feel.
Apologies to my Deutsche friends about the "break the lucrative monopoly of the mechanical axis". At least they didn't insult the Japanese and Italian part of the axis.

In a word they are cheap chinese clone switches trapped in an impressive board design.

Any way to get them for cheap in Germany or Europe? Thinking about buying one and replacing the switches by Cherry MX.

Id like to know this as well, and also how much these actually go for. Ive read some reviews here that stated this board costs $35 or something but prices i can find start at at least double that excluding shipping.

About 20€ + shipping from China.. total shouldn't be more than 40-45€ per board

You should start a group buy.

Here is Sixtys review if you didn't find it already.

But check this. I should really learn Media Wiki someday....

<brb, realized I SHOULD try loading pics into wiki first>



Pretty good clones. Cherry MX is turning into a Whirlpool of ALPS! (yes I know you guys like Alps but I like ALPS)

RED clones.

This board is really intresting, since according to sixty the switches is something between black and red Cherry's, and I'd love to try that out.

And if I don't like the switches I should be able to just swap them with real cherry's wouldn't I?

Designing a 70g spring SHOULD have been the Korean Gold Spring goal.

KRAZY Koreans!

Don't know how your guys math skills are but $50 still isnt even close to 20 euros in my book.... I want one for 40 shipped (tho that one for 50 shipped is getting close, to bad tax will add another 30 where i could probably get one for 40 in without added stuff) cuz for that it would make a wicked gift for a couple gaming-nerd friends i have!

My math skills are fine. Complain to Half Saint.
