    I just ordered on in the US. How do I know if I'll get a mouse? How does the promo work? 

    This keyboard will go good with my build. I have a 1080FTW hybrid in a DG-8 case with a 280 CLC on the CPU.

    If you just ordered, you will get a mouse.  The mouse will be packaged with the keyboard. 
     
    Once we've hit the proverbial "while supplies last", we'll remove the promo before we sell more.

    what is the difference between blue and brown switches?


    Blue and Brown are similar in that there is a tactile feel when the key registers a press.  Where they differ is that the Blues make a noticeable clicking sound at the actuation/reset point, whereas the Browns do not click, resulting in much quieter typing.  If you regularly use VOIP software for chatting, blues may not be the best choice unless you use press-to-talk.  On the other hand, if the noise isn't an issue, blues are sometimes preferred for typing reasons, because you will generally end up learning to type with minimal actuation force, which will help to reduce fatigue and strain over time.  Although these are Kailh switches, the general behavior is very similar to Blue and Brown Cherry switches, if you're familiar with those.
     
    The technical specs of each type are located on the Spec Sheets for each:

    That's...an interesting question.  The keys are certainly removable, but the switches?  I don't have the answer to that right now.  It goes without saying that removing/replacing the switches would void your warranty, but I know that isn't always a concern with the EVGA Community.


    I can find out for you, but I'm also sure that you'll understand if I strongly suggest you don't remove the switches.

    The free mouse deal makes for a pretty good price. Just wish it had RGB lighting but not a big deal and a lot of time we see RGB made products it clearly seems the lighting becomes the focus over function.

    So want to jump on this, but shipping and tax always slows me down in checkout.  Always feel like I should wait for a sale, or at least the occasional free shipping days.  Maybe give me some more time to accumulate EVGA bucks.  Or wait until EVGA offers pickup!

    LeeM, how does one know if the mouse promotion has been applied?

    Right now, purchasing a keyboard automatically includes a mouse.  There will be no notice through the purchase process; all keyboards shipping out after purchase on EVGA.com will have a mouse included for the duration of this promotion. 
     
    We've added a promo icon to the product cart page to let you know that the promotion is still active.  When the promotion ends, the image will be removed.

    I think for gaming, I will get the one with the brown switches. Maybe the blue for my wife who just does regular typing. 
     
    P.S. Ugh. Just saw only only 1 per household. Bah!             
     
     
    EDIT: Since there's 2 different keyboards, can we get 1 of each? That won't be 1 per household? Right?

    Brown, easily.


    i think the video has it backwards, it says the blue are tactile and browns are standard.

    i understand but some may wish to replace the switches with stiffer ones, from what i could find on them they are 65g switches and i have seen some people that like some keys like say the space bar or certain other keys to be just little harder or want faster speed switches.

    Any plans for a split / wave style keyboard?  I love the layout of the MS Natural 4000, and can't really stand typing on straight keyboards anymore.  No one makes a wave style with mechanical switches for under $300.  I bet there's a fair number of people like me just waiting for that perfect mechanical split keyboard...

    $150 for a single LED back-lit mechanical keyboard is nuts. You can get a RGB mechanical keyboard all day long for under that price. Is the Z10 keyboard software the same as evga mice software or will people have to run separate software's.  What apps does evga have that work with the keyboard LCD screen?

    Wow. A keyboard from EVGA. Always a big fan of the EVGA products and really sat up straight when I saw this. I desperately need a replacement for my Logitech G19, and this appeared to have all the requirements covered... except for one. Only 5 macro keys? Very disappointing. I'm looking for a minimum of 10. 12 (in two columns) to 15 (in three columns) would be optimal.
