Summary: I worked really hard on this video review... hope it helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?
Pros: I worked really hard on this video review... hope it helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?, Pros:, Great compact layout with full functionality, Great price, Detachable cable with multiple routing options
Summary: Is my first mechanical keyboard. These are very well built and have nice rubber feet to prevent the keyboard from slipping. Bought the Cherry MX Browns with white backlight but works the same. The LEDs are very bright which is a plus and the complete functionality in a TKL size is great for my cluttered desk. Only problem is I sometimes find myself using the navigational keys instead of entering numbers when I forget which mode I am in.
Pros: Complete functionality of full keyboard in TKL size, LED backlit
Cons: TK switching mode requires some getting used to
Summary: It's a great keyboard and my first mechanical one but I'm not sure I'd pay the $130 after shipping for it again, it's a lot of money for a keyboard to just be like 'yeah, it's decent'. I installed o-rings right after I got it and typing is definitely more enjoyable with them so that's a plus I guess.
Pros: Solid build quality, braided usb cable, relatively even backlighting
Cons: F12 & the arrowed portion of the numpad keys don't light up the same as the others. Also a metallic pinging noise while typing certain keys even with o-rings installed.
Summary: Overall, this keyboard is a good one. One of the best features on this keyboard is being able to switch between different modes.
Pros: - Backlight is great. Really stands out with the blue backplate., - Great for LAN parties., - Great to type with., - Stands are rubber coated., - Very sturdy., - Braided cable., - Able to route the cable different ways., - Able to lock the windows key.
Summary: This is my first ever mechanical keyboard. When looking for a keyboard, I needed one that was TKL to fit on my desk along side with my mouse. At first I really wanted a Ducky 9087 but unfortunately they were always sold out and on back order. When I found this keyboard, I had only heard of good things from both reviewers and Linus. This keyboard feels very solid and is of amazing quality for its price. Highly recommended.
Pros: -Backlit, -Feels very solid, -Detachable USB, -High quality USB cable
Cons: -Having to switch from number pad to arrow keys
Summary: This is my first mechanical keyboard. I chose this on for it's unique compact design incorporating the navigation keys with the number pad; fits my desk well. I also wanted a fully backlit kb and this one does not disappoint. The keyboard is heavyier than a regular one, feels solid and is not prone to accidental movement. This is good, because the mini USB cable (braided, heavy-duty) attaches to the kb in the back, so if you move it around a lot it will come loose.
Pros: Solid and durable construction, excellent response, bright backlighting, good features.
Cons: Loose USB connection, too many usb devices in Windows, numberpad enter only works with numlock on.
Summary: This is my first mechanical keyboard and you can really feel the difference between using a mushy membrane keyboard and this one. If you do get the one with the Blue switches, the clicky-ness will seem very loud in the beginning but you'll get used to it. Only one complaint, but not about the keyboard.
Pros: Blue Switches, very solid feeling, Cost Efficient, Removable USB cable
Summary: Solid heavy feel is reassuring, Everything on the keyboard was perfect so far except for the 2 to 3 keys (keys affected are hardly used ones, Qwerty keys work fine) that become stiff with use so you don't feel tactile feedback. I figure some mechanical kb lubrication in the switch might fix the issue. Back lighting is nice with the blue coloured plate that combined with the blue LED's creates a even glow around the key caps and the letters on them.
Pros: Cherry Mx blues., Blue backlight., Feel solid & heavy., Small footprint, Combines Number pad, Arrow keys, pg up & pg down keys., Price matched
Cons: No wrist rest., A couple keys (2-3) came out of the box stiff when pressed & didn't make a clicking sound/feel., Back light breathing effect is hardly noticeable
Summary: I have been a fan of cherry red switch so i was looking for a decent tenkeyless red switch keyboards for a relatively affordable price and i came across this. its really, not a tenkeyless, but still it is compact (compared to the orthodox/standard layout) and it was not that hard to adapt as i was using a tenkeyless keyboard previously. The keys feel perfect, I really like how my fingers feel whenever i type; and i think this is the most important feature of a keyboard.
Pros: mechanical, red switch, LED, Looks slick, Compact
Cons: Function media key somewhat uncomfortable, unorthodox layout (not really a con for me but it can be to some people), somewhat expensive for a keyboard, poor durability (on connector)
