Post updated 06/25/2020!
Looking for that keyboard upgrade but don’t know what to choose? Here is a guide of the best options up to 500 reais to buy in the national territory, without having to stress about long delays in international purchases.
We will not only focus on keyboards at the price limit, we will also mention keyboards of 200, 300 and 400 reais for those looking for options in these price ranges.
Unfortunately with the high dollar and the pandemic directly affecting imports the list ended up undergoing major changes and decreasing a lot in size, after all many models are no longer sold and others have increased the price substantially.

Keyboards up to 200 reais
Unfortunately the category of 200 reais was extinguished, with the high dollar and the Coronavirus in full action, keyboards have risen a lot in price and models that I previously indicated here now cost R $ 300 or even more, thus being replaced by better options for the price .
When new models appear in this price range, let me include them here!
Keyboards up to 300 reais
Gamdias Hermes P1A RGB – R $ 280 ~
We now have as the first keyboard on the list a model from Gamdias that has RGB lighting and blue switches from TTC, which also has good durability and would be comparable to Kailh Box models.
Dazz Eclipse – R $ 285 ~
The Dazz Eclipse is the new addition to the list, it has Gateron switches of the Blue type, which are a little noisy but which will undoubtedly have great durability, after all Gateron is already an established brand in the mechanical keyboards market. It also has Ç, but it is not the ABNT2 standard as the brand says, and it is also not RGB.
Keyboards up to 400 reais
Motospeed CK61 RGB – R $ 350 ~
Do not confuse the CK61 with the CK62, although the CK62 also has a wireless connection it uses Outemu switches, and because they have many problems I do not recommend them anymore. This one has Double-shot ABS keys, Kailh Box switches and RGB lighting in addition to the 60% layout that many people are looking for.
Sharkoon PureWriter TKL RGB – R $ 340 ~
The PureWriter TKL RGB was sold again in the national territory and entered our list occupying the price range up to R $ 400. Its advantages include the Kailh switches that have good durability, RGB lighting that can be controlled directly on the keyboard, the the fact that it is a low-profile model is also a great differentiator, even more in conjunction with the ABNT Layout where we find Ç as a dedicated key.
Sharkoon PureWriter RGB – R $ 370 ~
PureWriter RGB is the Full-size version of the model I just mentioned above and has been sold again in the national territory and is included in our list occupying the price range up to R $ 400. Its advantages include Kailh switches that have good durability, RGB lighting that can be controlled directly on the keyboard, the fact that it is a low-profile model is also a great differential, even more in conjunction with the ABNT Layout where we find Ç as a dedicated key.
Pichau P631K RGB – R $ 350 ~
We also have one of the newest additions to the Brazilian market appearing at the beginning of the list. The P631K has RGB lighting, ABNT2 layout and uses Kailh switches, which in itself makes it a very interesting keyboard. In addition, its price is very low, coming for only R $ 350 to our market. And the store to buy? I don’t think I need to say it, do I?
The Peregrine Falcon is a keyboard that has been on the market for some time, when it launched its price was a little above what we considered ideal, but with the high prices of other models and the price stagnation of this one it ends up being make it a good option. In addition to being RGB it also has Gateron switches and the true ABNT2 standard, with the large Enter and Ç on the keyboard.
Keyboards up to 500 reais
Cooler Master CK550 RGB – R $ 475 ~
The Cooler Master CK550 RGB features Gateron Red switches, RGB lighting and an appearance that mixes aspects of various keyboards, such as the K99, K96, Phantom Elite and K70.
Its keycaps are still made of ABS Laser plastic, but the rest of its quality maintains the Cooler Master quality standard, with the keyboard’s strongest point being its extremely well-made PCB, as well as its almost perfect lighting. The switches are not Cherry, but Gateron, luckily we don’t have to worry about that because the brand switches are of great quality and some users even prefer them to Cherry.
Pichau P731 – R $ 499 ~
Together with the P631K, the brand also launched the P731 which would be its top-of-the-line keyboard. It has Cherry switches, in addition to the layout continuing in ABNT2 and with Double-Shot keycaps, sorry they are not PBT.
FallenGear Ace Tournament (TKL) – R $ 470 ~
Fallen Gear’s new release, Ace, features Gateron switches available in Black, Red and Blue. We have a completely white keyboard, RGB, ABNT2 and Double-shot keycaps. The price? Now it is close to the R $ 500 range, but it is still a great option.
And so we finish our list of the best mechanical keyboards up to R $ 500 available for purchase in June 2020, maybe in the coming months prices will fall again and we can add more keyboards to the list.
