                                                          Personally, I would recommend this
                                                          it may be $47 but you can use codes cough cough honey, and it has the quality of a $100 keyboard

After about 30 days I started getting multiple triggering on the "o" key, the "i" key the single tick key ( ' ), the "e" key and a couple others. I tried everything, including blasting the individual keys with 80 PSI. I tried Windows Keyboard Settings, a different USB port, rebooting, looking for newer drivers (there are none), and nothing worked. The K551 Vera is now sitting on my keyboard pile along with a dozen other keyboards.

                                                                    And I'm sure I don't have to tell you that support for the Redragon is non-existent.

I just assumed vendors were running out of space so they dropped the "Cherry." Clearly, that's not the case. Live and learn....
