    Donya Japan unveiled a new value mechanical gaming keyboard, the N-YKB-F2139L. Although the manufacturer of the switches is not known, it appears similar to those made by ALPS Electronics. The keyboard has a standard 109-key QWERTY layout with English and Japanese hybrid keyset. The keyboard includes special orange-colored replacement keys for the W, A, S, D, and arrow keys. These keys have rubberized surfaces with bumps that improve tactile location and comfort in extended gaming sessions. The keyboard measures 465 x 165 x 35 mm (WxDxH), weighing 1 kg (mechanical keyboards tend to weigh more, 1 kg is Kosher). The keyboard uses USB interface with electronics that increase NKRO. The cable is 1.3 meters long. The N-YKB-F2139L is priced at 4,999 JPY (US $65.2).

    I know for a fact this keyboard is made in China. I saw a bunch of these when I was in China the past summer. Same red WASD and arrow keys, same external design, same blue switches.

    I just didn't want anybody buying this keyboard (that's redistributed by a Japanese company) and automatically assuming it to be uber high quality. I'm Chinese-American, or American-Chinese if you consider me being born in NYC, but I can't deny that most of the stuff that comes out of China is garbage unless you're Apple and you have perpetual influence over the quality of the product despite maintaining retarded low wages. ;)
