Hi,
I need a recommendation on a silent keyboard. I type a lot so it's also important that it won't be hard on my fingers. My current keyboard is really hard to type on and is really loud (Logitech K350).
Budget: I guess I want it to be "best for the price" so not too expensive but just throw me everything you got and I'll choose

You're technically asking for a mechanical switched keyboard and one which is equipped with Cherry's MX Red Switches. They aren't exactly cheap but you can find a Corsair K65(the vanilla version) for about 50USD on Ebay. You didn't exactly state a budget.

No, rubber domed keyboards will be cheap ofc but they won't be quiet and you will bottom out meaning more force on the fingers.

I've never owned a mechanical keyboard. I always thought it was on the louder side actually. You're saying that it's more quiet? I really want to try but it's just too expensive. I guess my budget is lower than you'd expect (50$ +/-)

The keyboard you mentioned is about 150$, not 50$

Guys what about the Redragon K582? Just found it on Amazon it's MX RED equivalent mechanical keyboard for under 50$... But how are "equivalent" keys? has anyone tried? I am using the Redragon M601 mouse and it's OK.. for the price of course (comfortable and rather accurate)

Ye I think I will get it since I have their M601 mouse which I had good experience with.. But of course you can give me more advice.
And about the "known brands" mechanical keyboard prices: If Redragon can sell it for this price, I'm sure that their price is not worth 100$+.. Just stop paying this ridiculous price and see how it drops. We can't be hostages of those brands.

Yes, they are. That’s why I, first, recommended the Microsoft keyboard.
Sorry about that, didn't realise that's the reason!


I recently bough this Redragon K502 (silent keyboard):

I wasn't sure if I'd like it because I was replacing a Cooler Master MS120 Mem-chanical keyboard:

I have only had the redragon for about a week but I have to say that I actually am starting to like it now that I am getting used to it.
Thank you for the feedback! haven't seen this keyboard yet! I mean after using their mouse I was quite happy as well.

**Edit: I always avoided those flat-switches keyboards, they always seem like hard to type on, am I wrong? I type alot! this keyboard is specifically for gaming and less for typing while I actually do more typing

MX Silent and MX Speed switches are quiet, and have a softer typing feel than MX Reds. Keyboards with those are a lot less common though, I have a Corsair keyboard with them I got from BestBuy. They go on sale every so often, you can get for for a pretty good discount of normal pricing.
