Top customer reviews
* Blue switch clicky is very mild
* Works with no special software
* Configurable from function key
* Some windows hot keys via function
* Responsive in gaming
* No volume adjust hotkeys (but there is fast-forward/rewind)
* Does not save LED state
* LED colors are fixed per row (not multi-color at any given key).
* Slight friction feel in the keys
* Tactile click is very very mild. Mostly audible.
The biggest issue is that the LEDs turn back on after reboot or unplug/replug, and it's several function key hits to get them dark again.
Also, it would be nice if the LEDs were configurable colors. They're not multicolor LEDs, rather, the bottom row is purple, next is orange, then green, red, blue, and pale blue-white.
Also, the font on the keys is a little distracting, though ideally, you only look once to locate your fingers. (The F and J location nubs are not big enough to feel without being very careful to not press the buttons.)
However, for the price, it's great. It's a good learning experience for me too (blue is too soft a spring and tactile feel for me, but my Type M keyboard is just too big for my desk.)
Note that this is exactly the same as the EagleTec and a couple of other brands of the same keyboard, but the price is better here with BesTek. Also, BesTek seems to continually improve their products (I have some power taps from them), and tends to be somewhat responsive to support. YMMV, but if you are okay with the rainbow LEDs defaulting to "on", then this is a great keyboard.
The font is strange, though. It's a hit or miss but I don't find it too much of an issue. Some letters look completely normal but other keys like the B, A, Caps Lock and 8 look like they were extracted from alien text. Usable nonetheless. If this is your first mechanical keyboard or your first blue switch keyboard, I recommend. If not, it's still not a bad cheap alternative to the more expensive k70, Strafe, g710+ or the Blackwidow.
Edit: I found a third flaw. I realized that you can't tell whether caps lock and other such keys have been activated or not. Caps lock has no indicator of being off or on.I would give the keyboard 4.5 stars as this isn't that bad since you can quickly find out if caps lock is on or not, but seeing as this was only $26 for me, I'll keep the keyboard at 5 stars If I find anything else new, I'll make sure to edit my review and report back.
Edit2: There is a light next to the Bestek logo that will illuminate when caps lock is on. I personally do not believe this is intuitive as the caps lock is on the far left side of the keyboard and this light is on the far right. But at least it's there. I guess. Even if I won't be using it.
The switches aren't Cherry switches, but the ones here do feel comparable to Cherry Blacks. This keyboard does come with blue switches as an option, so if that's more your boat, you can get that one instead.
USB cable is fabric reinforced, and appears to be shielded as well, which is a nice touch. Also comes with a velco tie wrap to keep the cable tucked clean.
It's heavy too, and won't move around on your desk. While its' no the great big monster IBM retro keyboards,
for the money this keyboard cannot be beaten.
Very solid keyboard, especially for the 25 dollars I spent on it.
Feels nice and weighty. Overall just no complaints really. The black keys feel exactly like I thought they would. No tactile bump. More resistance than red switches. Backlight and other functions work as described.
The switches in the keyboard are labeled "Content".
For the cons, I can say that the font is horrible and I prefer a more simplistic one. And the capital letter lighting is so small that in a certain angle you can't notice it.
Nevertheless, I would highly recommend this keyboard to my friends.
