I wanted a cheap wireless keyboard for work, and this fit the bill nicely.Took a little getting used to using the "fn" key for using arrows, and it's still not as fast as dedicated arrow keys, but kind of expected in a 61-key keyboard.It's my daily-use keyboard for programming, it's held up well so far (about 2 months of use).I ordered some custom keycaps for it and now it looks very snazzy (keycaps cost about the same as the keyboard itself!
They brown switches feel nice although they are fairly loud if you bottom the keys out.Pros:- The switches feel great- Build quality is better than I expected for a $40 mechanical keyboard.- It has two ports on the keyboard for the charger so you can route it either way depending on which way it flows better on your desk, and it even has a slot at the bottom of the keyboard to place the wireless adapter when you are traveling or not using it.- Comes with a key cap puller in case you want to switch them or clean the keyboardCons:- No back lighting which can be a little disappointing at night especially if you are not used to all of the function layers on a 60% keyboard.- Space key is a little wobbly due to cheap stabilizers but definitely not a deal breaker.- The extra red key caps don't seem to fit anywhere on the board without looking weird and out of place.
The keys feel great, and the layout works really nicely especially if you don't use the other special function keys that often.Wou'd recommend it to someone who uses it mostly for typing and wants to try out what a mechanical keyboard feels like.
I like the sound and feel of the springs, and overall I wouldn't mind buying a keyboard with this switch again.- The board itself has a plastic case, but it has a good heft so it feels very solid and quality.A few cons:- No backlighting.- Non-programmable.- These do seem a little louder and you may want to leave them at home if you are heading to a library.
The lighting is nice, and the feel of the keys is fine.My one problem is that I specifically looked for a "brown-switch" keyboard with the understanding that it had the quietest clicks.
As someone who often spends 12+ hours a day in front of a computer for work and spends a significant degree of that time typing, a mechanical keyboard is a must have for me; however, I really do not like the wires and clutter that up until recently go along with a mechanical keyboard.
The switch for the Enter key was not soldered to the circuitboard during production; I had to bend the pins to make a connection to the circuitboard in order for key presses to register, and even then it only works 1/3 of the time.
This is a good prototype for a keyboard.
A wireless mechanical keyboard for this price seems way to good to be true and I guess it sort of is.
My 'm' and comma (,) do not register keystrokes most of the time.
