It's cheap AF. seriously, $30? that's like 6 pumpkin spice lattes.
It's actually mechanical, not like mechanical feel keyboards, you do actually get that sweet sweet clickity clack!
Backlit! Not only is it mechanical it's actually backlit too! and it's not too bright, just right, easy to see even with the monitor right infront of it.
Raised keys, a simple little touch, but makes the keyboard look that much better.
Now onto the cons:
There aren't that many cons really, at this price point it's bettery tactile wise than literally every keyboard out there, due to the fact it is an actual mechanical keyboard.
But the only real Con that I can find is that it says the switches used are a Cherry Green Equivalent, but they're not. They're a Cherry MX Blue clone if even that, a real cherry MX Green has about 70grams of actuation force, this keyboard has 55grams. I measured using quarters, it took 10 quarters to make the switch depress. But more on these switches, they say that they're Greetech switches, however I can't find the same or similar switches anywhere online! These switches might be a knock off of a knock off.....
but lets be honest, it's a $40 mechanical keyboard. that's actually mechanical. The only thing that would make this better, would be, slightly larger keys, I don't have little child hands. and possibly a wrist rest, but honestly? This keyboard is an incredible value and I would highly recommend it!
This keyboard uses outemu blue switches. These are not Cherry MX Green equivalents as listed, but Cherry MX Blue equivalents. About the switches, they accept standard keycaps make for Cherry MX stems. These are blues, which are great for typists (that don't share a room with anyone else). These are loud switches, as all blues are. Great tactile feedback and great press.
Function - Works great as a MX Blue starter point. All keys work perfectly, and the back lighting is just the right intensity. Each press is satisfying.
Fit - It's a standard tenkeyless size and fit. As with all tenkeyless boards, it has no wrist wrest. If you spend multiple hours at your desk a day, investing in a wrist wrest is a wise decision.
Finish - Aluminum construction, ABS construction, and ABS keycaps (Not PBT). It looks nice, keys feel nice on the fingertips. Gold plated USB is a nice touch. All in All, the finish on the board is well above the 40 dollar price range. RGB lighting would be preferable.
Other Notes: My wife hate it. She games in the same room as me, and uses the Redragon Karura (chicklet style keyboard, also fantastic if you like laptop type keyboards). The noise drives her nuts, and I would definitely not recommend for an office environment.
I've had this device for a few weeks now; obviously only additional time will speak to its durability. My decision on this plank was based on mechanical keyswitches, price, and size (specifically the tenkeyless option). It's being used in a variety of applications on my home workstation, including word processing and casual gaming.
* It's compact without being undersized and has a solid feel to it. The USB cable isn't braided but the PVC jacket seems more than hefty enough.
* The key layout is very standard without any attempts at re-arranging or over-sizing the navigation keys.
* The keystroke response is solid, maybe a little on the deep side but the pressure is ideal for my personal typing style, which I must admit is a little heavy-handed even outside of gaming. Couldn't say if they're Cherry brand or what Cherry model they'd be comparable to, but I like them so far.
* All plug-n-play - no drivers or software required.
* Not really a "con", per se, but it *is* a mechanical keyboard so don't depend on it to be stealthy - I live in an upstairs apartment and I imagine my downstairs neighbors can probably hear me clacking away.
* It would have been nice to have a few bytes of NVRAM to retain my settings; as is, you'll need to re-set any preferences on each boot.
* The backlight is red. RED. Again, not really a "con", especially for me as it's my preference and I knew that when I purchased it, but if you don't like red, best look for another device.
* It's all plastic. I'd suspect from the weight of the thing there must be some metal other than the screws in there somewhere, but outside it's all plastic. Appears to be a pretty durable matte finish though.
If you don't have a need for a slew programmable keys (I have a Logitech G13 pad and G600 mouse to cover those needs) then this looks to be an excellent budget-wise choice for keyboard.
IMPORTANT NOTE to the seller/manufacturer: You REALLY REALLY should un-group your products - the reviews here are for a variety of devices and the mix-n-match of them is NOT conducive to accurate or informative ratings and reviews.
