It's a cheap mechanical keyboard, however, the left shift in particular seems very shallow is this a defect?

Hey,

If you are looking for a TKL (tenkeyless) keyboard like the K65 then I would suggest something like the Cooler Master Storm Quickfire Rapid (phew! really long name). It is a very nice keyboard for the price and has a wide variety of switches available. If you are new to mechanical keyboards then I suggest you read a guide, there are hundreds of great keyboards out there.

Hope this helps!

Hey thanks! I don't think there are any Cooler Master Storm Quickfire Rapid's in stock anywhere local, (I live in Australia). So i'd probably have to order off newegg or something.
Are there any switches you would recommend for gaming? Personally, I enjoy a bit of everything, FPS, RTS, MMORPG, 3rd person games.
The K65 comes stock with Cherry MX reds, but I don't really like them, the slightest touch counts as an input and my character will walk the wrong direction sometimes if i so much as rest my fingers on the keys.
To aleviate this I'm thinking maybe the Blues or Browns, But I hate the overly loud click of the blues, but i'm worried the browns might not be tactile enough, and will feel like the reds.

Well I am currently waiting on my Quickfire Rapid with Browns to be delivered and the reason I went with browns is because they are a great balance for typing and gaming. The Blues have a different actuation and release point, so while they are great for typing (still very good for gaming too) they may be harder to quickly double tap in games.
