SOUND & FEEL
Talking about the sound and feel, this keyboard sounds very nice, and has that “thock” sound that many enjoy, but depending on the surface that it is on, can sound very “poppy” as many people like to call it. On a couch, which is what I have included in the sound test, the keyboard sounds poppy. On a normal desk, the keyboard would sound deeper, or more “thock”. This keyboard feels amazing, and it is very responsive. There are keys on this keyboard that feel mushy, however. The keys that feel mushy are the ones with stabilizers under them, which are backspace, the enter key, and both shift keys. The space bar feels normal. Note, if you get the red switches, the keyboard will not feel tactile, which is the nature of the smooth, linear red switches. If you want a clicky sound, go with the blue switches. The blue and brown switches are tactile, and you will feel an obvious bump when pressing the keys.
RGB & SOFTWARE
The RGB on here is better than any I’ve ever seen. The RGB is fully customizable with the amazing software the keyboard has to offer. The software allows you to change what keyboard layout you use, as well as optimize it for Mac or Windows. The main feature of the software for me was what you could do with all the lighting effects. There is a number of cool lighting effects that come with the keyboard, but all are in the standard rainbow colors that we are used to. The software lets you change the colors of the effects, allowing for a huge amount of customization. There are also more effects that are available once you install the software, which I find look nicer than the effects that come with the keyboard. To switch between effects on the keyboard, press FN2 + 9. The RGB is a little dim, but when working in a room with the blinds not fully open or it is closer to night time, this is not noticeable.
OVERVIEW & FINAL THOUGHTS
This keyboard is amazing, despite two tiny drawbacks. One of these drawbacks is that the keyboard is not hot-swappable, which means that you cannot change the switches inside of them easily (without soldering). This is only a drawback to those that want to customize their keyboard. The other drawback to this keyboard is that some of the keys are mushy, which to be honest, isn’t that big of a deal because they still work normally, they just feel a little worse than the other keys. The Bluetooth works perfectly and I have never noticed any issues with it. Charging the keyboard is barely anything I’ve had to worry about, since I use the keyboard on and off Bluetooth. Overall, this keyboard the best option for anyone looking for a nice typing or gaming keyboard that does not want to customize their keyboard.
