The $ 69 EVGA mechanical keyboard has interchangeable switches
The best mechanical keyboards are generally an expensive investment compared to their membrane counterparts. But a new EVGA deal offers the Z15 RGB Gaming Keyboard with hot-swappable switches for just $ 69.
That’s almost half the MSRP of this keyboard, which is also pretty close to its typical retail price according to CamelCamelCamel. You’ll have to go for Kalih instead of Cherry here, but what’s great about this keyboard is that it doesn’t lock you into clickable or linear switches.

The EVGA Z15 RGB gaming keyboard features swappable Kalih switches with 3.5mm total travel distance and 1.1mm actuation distance. This deal comes with Kalih Bronze clicky switches, but you can swap them out for Kalih Speed Silver switches down the line.

Today’s deal is only for the Z15 model with clickable switches, Kalih Bronze to be precise. But if you find you prefer linear ones, you can replace them with Kalih Speed Silver switches down the line. Kalih Speed Silver Switches currently cost around $ 26 on Amazon for a 68 pack, which still leaves you with a lower total price than most of the competition.
Along with the interchangeable switches, this keyboard also features per-key RGB lighting, a dedicated volume scroll wheel, and a slight selection of media keys for functions like play and pause. The travel distance is 3.5mm and the actuation distance is 1.1mm. There’s also a magnetic palm rest included, as well as a built-in 32-bit ARM processor that supports a 4000Hz polling rate.
