My System Specs

Default

I bought the keyboard last week for 10 dollars more. I haven't had much experience with mechanical keyboards though.

It does feel very solid for an all plastic keyboard. Even the macro rail board is pretty stable and it has a flip-down bar to prevent it from hitting the F-keys when it's folded down. I think the USB wire is a little thin but I'm not using it anyway. The macro keys attachment are not cherry switches, but the side macros are.

The key prints looks like they'll still wear out over time, but it still seems really well done. The antighosting isn't all that great though. The WASD cluster had some issues. The volume knob is too fine pitched for anything really practical, and there are no dedicated mute or media keys. All the key's pressure felt the same except for the space bar. It felt lighter than the rest of the keys.

Though the keyboard felt solid, I feel that it has some fitting issues with the USB ports. It might just be really tight because it's new though.

The numpad is not secure enough to hang off of, but it holds together well when resting on a desk. It has a separate USB cable so you can use it separately. I use it for spreadsheet data filling at the moment. The numpad and keyboard also has a 2 level tilting feet with a strip of rubber to hold it in place. The numpad has mechanical switches.

There are no backlights except for the side macro keys and the volume knob.

The main cable is braided, but they don't have strain reliefs. It has two USB plugs, but you only need to plug in one for it to function. I believe the other one is just for extra power to power up more power hungry devices

If you want me to check out anything specific on the keyboard, I can definitely take a look at it.
