Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great product

 

Overall i recommend this product. The TTS switches are not for everybody since they are a clone of the cherry mx reds which are not very tactile and can be easaly pressed. Thats the biggest problem i had with the reviews for this product people seem to...

-Price. -lighting. -TTS switches really close to cherry mx but cheaper.

-The cable could have been done better, but for the price its ok - The software can be problematic at times

Inconsistent keys and weird issues at Windows start

 

I thought at first the touchy keys was just me. This is my first mechanical keyboard. But after a few months I still have MAJOR issues with mistyping, especially with passwords. These keys have ZERO tactical click to indicate when a key has been...

- Nice build and weight - Good illumination - Good for gaming

- Very inconsistent key presses - repeats keys really bad at Windows login - Awful for typing

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not a product to buy...total failure after 4 months, no customer support..

 

If you want a mechanical keyboard, look somewhere else.

Keyboard kinda worked

Keyboard did repeat quite often, but the touch was nice, The big problem is it failed after 4 months. Support was contacted, then I tried to get a return authorization, there was no more communication from Gamdias, unable to send keyboard in for repair.

Decent keyboard, especially at the price point. Do not use in cold environments.

 

-The lighting is very good, I like the preset adjustable levels. - Good size and weight

-It is far too easy to initiate a key press, especially spacebar. There is no indicator when a key is pressed so I would randomly enter spaces just from resting my thumbs on the spacebar, and add in random letters if my fingers strayed from directly...

If you're looking for feedback from a mechanical, this is not the keyboard for you.

 

I would not recommend purchasing this product.

Solid build +1 Nice lighting +1

No feedback on button presses, some keys trigger with a very light touch while others need fully compressed and there is no "click" or switch. The inconsistencies made it very irritating to use in about every application.

Lasted 8 days

 

Bought this for my son for Christmas. Stopped working on Jan 2. Windows recognizes the keyboard, but keypresses don't register. There is a Fn+F11 key sequence to lock the keyboard, but it isn't locked. I was able to download the HERA software and...

Not has heavy as most other mechanical keyboards. Decent keyboard feel.

Too many symbols on some of the keys. Lasted 8 days before it completely stopped functioning. Company support is the worst I've ever seen. There is absolutely nothing on the box, in the included paperwork, or on the website that tells you how to get...

Good Value

 

This is a very sensitive keyboard. I hit stray keys all the the time because of my flagrant typing style. But for gaming, at least in my head, it's choice. I got it on sale for under $50 and feel that's a decent value. I can't bring myself to buy a K70...

adjustable backlight mechanical switches low price

USB connector - I'd prefer PS/2

Great Mechanical Keyboard

 

The red switches take some getting used to, but they work very well. The keyboard has some weight to it making it feel like a more expensive keyboard. The backlight is able to get very bright when turned up all the way.

Affordable, High Quality, Responsive, Bright Backlight

Consumer review (newegg.com)

It's a pretty good keyboard, especially considering price.

 

Overall, considering the price, it's a wonderful mechanical keyboard. That being said, if you can spend more on another keyboard of higher quality, I would recommend it.

You get that solid clicking and clacking that a mechanical keyboard should have. It's also back-lit to red, which is always nice. Has a nice weight to it. Nothing feels cheap or shoddy. Every key responds with equal pressure and it feels like an...

The keys are a bit down-push sensitive, which can be annoying. Even the slightest drag of your finger across a key can set it off, so you learn to be pretty careful. Only costs it 1 egg though.
