    "The only thing budget about this keyboard is the way it is made. I have already had to send it back for a replacement due to an inactive key; and I had to pay the cost of shipping. Although the key action is very nice I would not buy again because of lack of customer support."

    "This is an excellent keyboard, but I'm not sure if ~$80 would qualify as "budget" for a lot of gamers. The price is still higher than I would be willing to pay for a keyboard. "

    "I wouldn't really call the ROCCAT Isku FX a budget gaming keyboard. This keyboard cost around $100 which is a bit pricey when taking into account that this keyboard is not even a mechanical keyboard. This keyboard comes with the standard features you would come to expect from most gaming keyboards, like macro keys and a backlit keyboard. It's a decent keyboard, but I think there are probably better and cheaper options available."

    "The Logitech G810 is a nice bargain in the gaming keyboard space but is still a bit pricey at a $90 price tag. I personally feel that I do better by going to more mainstream brands as this feels a bit too far behind to be consider a budget peripheral when it is too much of a step down from the competition. As a starter piece it is fine but beyond that I feel you could do better."

    "I don't know. I wanted to love it, I really did. I've liked the other mechanical keyboards I've tried. But this one kind of sucks. After a month, I had issues with loose keys and double typing. I ended up having to switch to a normal keyboard for regular stuff like email. I mean what's the point in that? I'll definitely be looking further afield for my next gaming keyboard."
