The fully colored packaging is really great, you've basically got your users guide right on the box. It clearly lists all features and then shows you which switch your model has. This review will not cover the type of switch because these are very user dependant.


Unboxing

The contents of the box are all well packaged and stored. The content includes a warranty guide, user's manual, key cap remover/puller, macro record instructions and the keyboard itself.


USB Cord

The USB cord is big, but it has to accomodate USB wires. Paracord like braid is used to cover the wires and gold plated USBs are found.


Keyboard

The keyboard itself is really sturdy while typing, it's a solid board really. The plate that the keys are mounted is white, it helps reflect the RGB colors. Logos are found over the arrows keys in chrome and on the space bar.

More of the white plate that the keys are mounted to, a green PCB is found, which has no impact on anything. The soldering job is phenomenal, I'd say it's as good as you'd find on a motherboard. The MCU is an NXP LPC11U35F (Spec sheet found here)


Hidden button? Reset?

Also found a hidden button behind the tilting feet. Function testing button maybe?


I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this keyboard, it feels great to type on, the key caps can have o-rings if a user would want, but they are not as loud when bottoming out as other keyboards I currently have.

This keyboard is available with Red, Blue, Brown and speed Silver switches.

The only think I would've like to see included with future keyboards is tiny brushes to clean the keyboard.

I hope you like it and if you have any questions regarding the keyboard, don't hesitate to ask! smile.gif
