The keys are clicky and make a little more noise than the brown switch keyboard I have.
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!
This is a great 60% mechanical keyboard for the price.
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 cannot get the Print Screen to work and I use it daily in my work.
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.
It isn't that this is a bad keyboard or that it is not what it purports to be.
If you are not picky about the feedback of the mechanical switch and want a wireless mechanical keyboard, this will probably do the trick.
This is a good prototype for a keyboard.
