One little caveat for gaming, the increased travel distance compared to speed/low profile switches makes it less optimal for certain inputs like super jumps in fighting games (especially sf3: third strike).
It's lacking several attributes for mechanical enthusiast satisfaction — no hotswap, no additional tools or programmable software, switches that are actually less favored in today's market, etc — but for just "buy it and forget" casual use it's been fine so far. One of the things I appreciate about the cherry mx switches at least is having 45cN actuation force out of the box, compared to 50 from other red switches.
Here are the keyboards I bought this year (that I am comparing to):
- Drop CTRL low profile ($220 - Kaihua Speed Silver Linear switches)
- Logitech G915 TKL ($240 - White, Tactile switches)
- Royal Kludge 68 (~$50-90, bought two versions of this that I returned)
- Logitech MX Keys ($100, non mechanical)
- this one - G.SKILL KM360 ($50)
CONS - What this keyboard lacks that had me still buying other keyboards:
- USB pass-through. I use a hardware security token for work, and I prefer having it close to my typing fingers if possible. I have a USB A key and a USB C key, so either would be great. This is why I bought the Drop CTRL ($240) hoping it would be essentially the same keyboard but with usb passthrough.
- No Wireless option (preferably RF for gaming). This was a motivation behind the Logitech G915 TKL purchase, as well as the RK68s. Not a fan of bluetooth. Need a wired option too.
- No dedicated media keys - This is nice to have, but not critical for me, as I can map some keys on my stream deck (macro pad) to volume control (which works out great for me).
PROS - things that are so great about this keyboard, that I keep going back to it:
- Backlight is STRONG - the biggest let down of my entire life happened every time I unboxed a new keyboard and realizing that it doesn't compare to the luminescent brightness of my $50 KM360. Fore wireless keyboards, I get it. But the Drop CTRL keyboard really really let me down. A $250 wired keyboard with a white thats somewhat blue and very muted! I don't care for RGB so much as I care about luminescence! Give me brighter whiter whites!
- Switches smooth as butter. No modification necessaery. The big drawback to the Logitech G915 TKL was that the switches did not have the satisfying feel that I got from using the G.SKILL. Granted, they are tactile, and low profile, but if I compare apples to apples (Drop CTRL or RK68), the best feeling I get is from the G.SKILL and the Drop keyboards.
Overall, I am waiting for the day when G.SKILL makes this keyboard with USB-passthrough, dedicated media keys, and a RF wireless option. Until that day comes, Im sticking with the G.SKILL KM360, and my closet will be filled with keyboards that failed to upstage their much cheaper counterpart.
TL;DR: Don't hesitate to buy this keyboard!
