There’s the optical GK61 with all kinds of optical switches, you can probably find it cheaper somewhere else than Amazon.

Keyboards are mostly judged by the switch and keycap quality, software included and build quality.

Big gaming branded keyboards like Razer, Logitech and Corsair will always be a lot more expensive just because of the marketing. You’re basically paying for the name. Razer does have better build quality and maybe switches than Redragon but it’s not $100 better.

this pcb was orginally a pcb from a gk61 board (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08524TQ6J/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) , the parts that i used were the pcb and the plate. the only issue that i had with the case (https://usa.banggood.com/GH60-Solid-Wooden-Case-Customized-Shell-Base-For-60-pencent-Mini-Mechanical-Gaming-Keyboard-p-1175038.html?rmmds=myorder&cur_warehouse=CN&ID=49316) was that the plate was just a millimeter or so too big to fit into it. I ended up sanding the sides of the wood to make the plate fit better which only took about 10 minutes. the board is hotswap optical so the yellows were pretty perfect and ended up fitting really well into my low budget. I didnt have to do any soldering which was a really nice plus. also dont worry about asking questions, its the way i figured out what i wanted to do also.

Get the GK61 with Optical Yellow switches. They are the fastest switches on the market.

I’d get him this one:



The switches are pretty smooth stock, but if it’s too expensive maybe hop on to AliExpress and find cheaper ones. Maybe a hotswap?
