The name of the keyboard is the HP Pavilion Mechanical Gaming Keyboard 500 and here is the amazon link for it:

The real disgusting part is that they marketed it as a mechanical keyboard when it is actually a membrane keyboard. The only part mechanical about this keyboard is the slider within the fake switch.

And they obviously don’t understand how it’s supposed to work. Not being able to strafejump (W+D+Space) is a fatal design flaw.
