Impact 500: Surprisingly Great Value
Reviewed in the United States on April 12, 2017
Don't let the brand name deter you. You'll be hard pressed to find a plain, non-gamery TKL keyboard with genuine Cherry MX blue switches at this price point ($50 + prime shipping). Build quality is surprisingly good with a nice weight to it. Top cover plate has a smooth, rubber-like coating that won't catch grease easily - reverse side is shiny plastic and isn't finished with the same material. Back of the board also has 4 rubber feet, although the tips of the legs do not have rubber (didn't have any issues with it moving around thanks to the weight and the front two rubber feet). The included mini USB cable is braided, removable, and comes with a Turtle Beach branded velcro strap to keep things tidy. Underneath there are 3 channels to route the cable left, right, or centered. Legends on the ANSI keys will wear over time, but the relatively low cost of the keyboard means you can pick up a set of whatever you want.
Mac users: this keyboard works fine with my Macbook Air, but the keys will NOT automatically switch to Mac layout. This means the Windows key becomes Command (as opposed to Alt becoming Command) and F keys will not default to the Mac media shortcuts. You will have to use 3rd party software if you want your layout to be identical to Mac keyboards.
Overall, solid keyboard that seems to have flown under the mechanical keyboard radar.
