Hiper HCK-1K18A-US Black "Darkness" Alloy USB Keyboard


Most experts would agree that at the very top of the personal equipment list there are three peripheral devices: the mouse, keyboard, and the display. Keyboards often seem to be either the very first or the very last personal equipment upgrade for...

Extremely lightweight ; Excellent key response ; Short travel keystroke ; Convenient driver-free hotkeys ; Strong and attractive alloy finish ; High-quality construction ; Native USB interface ; Attractive overall design

Poor retail packaging ; Compact key layout will trouble novelists ; Needs a better name

HIPER HCK-1K18A-XX Black 103 Normal Keys 8 Function Keys USB or PS/2 Slim Alloy Keyboard


Overall, I would buy it again.

I like the size and key preasure. Very solid build

Once in a while, a key will hang. I type slow so it doesn't hurt me, but it might you. Does not hang very long, tho

Solid Silent and...Works


I will definately pick up another one of these for my next build. Never bought HIPER products until now, but this is a great first impression from them.

The first thing I noticed was how solid this thing felt. Besides being aluminum, everything is solid and doesn't rattle around. You can barely hear yourself typing on it, Keyboard is very responsive and easy to type on. Much better if you're used to...

Only con I would see is that it's notebook style. But it was actually a pro for me since I'm so used to it. People who are used to a full sized layout might find it a bit cramped, as other reviews have mentioned

Great quality, but...


The keypads are the same size as a full sized keyboard with exceptions: the right shift key, control keys and the number pad zero key are smaller to make space for nesting the arrow keys within the keyboard layout without any wasted space. On a larger...

Super build quality, good tactile feel, low profile and small footprint. The function keys are fine; they work on XPx64 and do not occupy unwarranted space given that most of us rarely use these function keys

Key layout is too dense

for the money, I expected more than this... this is just a small keyboard with a novelty metal surrounding it

its small and the outside is pretty stiff

its heavy, the usb connection refuses to work, certain key combinations will not work, hotkeys are not impressive
