Why are you looking for mx red switches? Anansi uses membrane switches, and I'm assuming you've never used mechanical switches if you don't have a keyboard with them. Reds are pretty rare.

Getting noppoo or filco in EU is pretty hard from what I heard. If that's still the case, your choice is limited to Steelseries 6G/7G, Das Keyboard and Razer Blackwidow. It's actually not that bad - you can get black, blue or brown switches.

It all comes down to preference, but in my opinion, black (or anything without tactile feedback) is only really good for FPS. If I hadn't played Quake a lot, I would switch to brown in a heartbeat (blue has feedback too, but I hate the sound). It's better for every other game type and MUCH better for typing. Das and Blackwidow Stealth edition (I think that's what it's called) have them.

you cant get noppoo in eu, you can buy it through ebay though and just change the layout to whatever you use, its not like you look at your keys anyway,

filco is rare in eu yes, but you can buy it from http://www.keyboardco.com/ - its a pretty B-looking site, but it is legit, and they have pretty much everything from filco,

as for red switches being rare or not, that depends entirely on where in eu ur from, its quite common in scandinavia.

if you just want a keyboard youll get within 3-4 days, just buy Corsair Vengeance k60/k90, those are red switches, but its not fully mechanical, the esc and F-keys are rubber switches, so again, i would recommend Filco

Logitech G710+? If anyone wonders, it uses Cherry MX Brown switches.

u shud really try brown switches man, they're fucking godly 45g of pressure to activate, makes them the lightest of the switches, and no annoying clickyness from blues and nice tactile feedback. lot of ppl like browns

some good keyboards w/ browns
http://www.amazon.co...co majestouch 2

http://www.amazon.co...cherry mx brown i have this keyboard but in blues =(

http://www.amazon.co...enkeyless brown

these all are tenkeyless keyboards, i recommend these because they are compact and take less deskspace. also less stress to your shoulders when you play games. not like u rly need the numpad at all really unless u do accounting n stuff.

I'm using the Steelseries 6gv2 red switch model. Really soft keys but still resistant enough to make it noticeable. I had blue switches before this and the linear travel of the reds feel better in gaming and a trivial difference in typing; except the noise difference, fucking blues are loud lol.

I'd recommend it, the 6gv2 also comes in a standard black switch model. Reds and browns have the lowest activation force, around 45g, but browns still give that "bump" as it travels down.

If you have any more questions feel free.

I would recommend this keyboard: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16823129006

I ordered it about a month ago and love it so far, nice red keys, saves a lot of space on my desk, and i like the sound from the mechanical keys.

Plus its a lot cheaper than all the other keyboards linked, I didn't want to spend $120+ for a keyboard.

ASSUMING YOU DON'T WANT A NUMPAD: (why would you want a numpad?)

+1 for this, it's a reasonably close costar clone but doesn't cost >$200.  If you can find it in Europe for <$100 equivalent, go for it.  May not be able to find it in reds though - as of a year ago cm only sold black/blue/brown in europe.

Another good option for a cheap costar clone is the HPE 87.  Chinese board, actually pretty decent, basically on par with a CM QFR.  Also pretty cheap:
