Great keyboard - very impressed

I bought this board after seeing an ad online. I've always used full size boards because I work with numbers all day and need a decimal key. I've always thought about getting a board designed for gaming so I decided to give it a try. I started my life with blue "click" switches and quickly got tired of all the noise, so I switched to speed switches. For that reason I ordered the closest one I could find here using RED linear switches and I have to say they are very similar. I'm very happy with…

Pros
  • Great for a small home
Cons

Great keyboard, especially for the price

I bought this keyboard for two main reasons. 1.) I wanted a quieter keyboard so as not to disturb people in the immediate vicinity. 2.) I wanted to try a 60% keyboard as I used to only use a full size keyboard. I went with the quietest keys, which are the complete opposite of the keyboard I had before. The keycaps are nice and solid (don't feel flimsy/cheap), and the switches themselves are very smooth. The key feels smooth and linear throughout its travel, not getting lighter or heavier the…

  • One year trial
Cons
  • Nothing here

Pleasantly surprised but better than Keeb project

Given the price I thought it wouldn't be a risky buy but an optical hot swap for under 30? I bought it to modify and it was a pleasure to tune it. On arrival I was pleasantly surprised by the weight of this model - it's slightly lighter than the SK61, but not by much. The keys clatter slightly, but unless you're very experienced with mechanical keyboards, this might not break the rules. The black optical switches respond wonderfully. Where this keyboard really stands out are the LEDs. The color

  • Dope 🔥
Cons
  • hides

I don't even know where to start with this keyboard. I was looking for a 60% gaming keyboard and came across this one. It looked good on paper, but there are so many gaming keyboards out there now that I wasn't sure it would get any better. The first thing that caught my eye was a true RGB keyboard. You can change templates. The program for changing is easy to use and intuitive. LEDs can also be very bright. Even in a well-lit battle, the RGB keyboard stands out. If you increase the brightness,

  • Very good price

Great price, limited hot-swap availability; needs much improvement.

Okay, here I read this: That's an insane value of $25-$30 with coupon at the time of writing this review (was $25). Optical black switches are good and have good OOTB smoothness. BUT, those switches are DIRTY on the record like crazy! This does not even take into account the rocking of the stem. Literally take a keyboard and give it a little shake and it sounds like a rattling shaker. You can also gently move the top of the switch housing and see how it wobbles around the metal plate. These…

  • Pleasant to use
Cons
