    I’ve decided to wait a few months for this review just to ensure my final decision with this keyboard, and after 4 months of almost daily use I have come to a simple conclusion with this product…Buy it !

    This keyboard is just absolutely perfect and many of the features of the keyboard just make it so much more worth it. I use my computer very often, if not daily, so I have spent many many months with this keyboard and can just go on and on about how GOOD it is for $50 when I purchased it. The metal on this give such a premium feel and weight when you grab it, and the blue LED contrast just make it look so much cooler in my opinion. The keys feel and sound AMAZING. I have fiddled with a lot of other brands (such as Razer, Corsair, Cooler Master) with the same tactile switches and I feel ZERO difference when it comes to this EagleTec keyboard. Absolutely amazing. As for the keys, the actuation force feels very average as most other Cherry MX BLUE switches, the keys feel very light when I press into them and that’s something I prefer. The lights illuminate well with the key caps, though my only minor (very minor) issue with the lighting is it doesn’t seem super bright when turned up all the way. I also want to mention that when you activate the “breathing” effect on the keyboard, a very faint buzzing noise near the top right side of the keys, but it is only slightly noticeable when the room is dead silent. You don’t notice it if you’re typing away or have some background noise, but it is there and I just wanted to mention that, nothing major or deal breaking.

    PROS:
    -Great Price
    -Very consistent weight and actuation points
    -Plenty of features
    -Premium feel and weight
    -Key caps look and feel great, and futuristic in my opinion.
    -USB cable is very long and comes with a Velcro strap to tie up extra length, never has this disconnected when in use. My computer turns on, and so does my keyboard. Simply no issues

    CONS :
    -Wish it could have had slightly brighter settings, mostly dimmer options rather than brighter. Still has great illumination though.
    -Not a deal breaker, but the very slight buzzing noise when the “breathing” effect is activated, only when the room is dead silent though.

    Overall, this is a perfect keyboard and I have a HUGE recommendation for anyone looking to buy a low-cost mechanical keyboard with tactile switches.

    Causes USB power surge, January 19, 2018

    Edit 2: I’ve ordered a replacement. I’ll update review and rating based on experiences with the replacement.

    The build quality of the keyboard is fine as far as I can tell, but I can’t even use it. No matter what PC I use, or what USB port I use, I receive the “USB Power Surge” warning from windows. I even plugged it into a self-powered USB hub with no other USB devices plugged into the computer, as well as a USB card installed to a PCI card slot, and it STILL was causing shorts.

    I understand that RGB lighting requires extra power, but this model uses only one USB-A male socket. If it really needs so much extra power that it causes surges, it should really use two USB-A plugs to offset the power required.

    I’m sending mine back. Maybe i’ve just got a dud, I dunno, but it’s extra frustrating because I bought this one after returning a similarly-priced Tomoko RGB mechanical keyboard, and while that one had a non-working “Q” key, at least it somewhat functioned.

    Perfect as an entry-level mechanical keyboard., June 13, 2016

    Update 6/29: After further use, I’d like to retract my statement that this keyboard feels strikingly similar to Cherry MX Switches. That’s not true, and it almost seems as if you need more actuation force before you trigger the keypress. The keys are stiff, but they feel good to type on. However, I’d have to say I prefer typing on my Cherry MX Brown keyboard, but that’s just personal preference. Overall, this keyboard did what I wanted it to do—and that was to be a replacement mechanical keyboard. It’s a whole different experience from Cherry MX, and I’m quite fond of it actually.

    I just received this keyboard today (about a few minutes ago) and I’m already pleased. I’ve been using a mechanical keyboard on my laptop (yes, it has one built-in) and it features Cherry MX brown switches. Unfortunately, something went wrong with that laptop, and after using a mechanical keyboard, it’s nearly impossible to go back. In the meantime, I wanted to find a mechanical keyboard for our desktop computer—one that wasn’t extremely expensive.

    I’m going to start by analyzing their boldest claim (and the one that most companies lie about). They claim that this keyboard has 100% anti-ghosting, which is equivalent to n-key rollover. With your standard membrane keyboards, you can probably press 5 keys down before ghosting occurs. That is, any additional key presses after those five will not register (they’ll become “ghosts”). With my testing so far, there is definitely merit to their claim. When I pressed down across the length of the keyboard with my palm, nearly all of the keys registered. Obviously, with this method, it’s nearly impossible to tell which keys I’ve pressed down, but from what I can tell no ghosting occurred. There is AT LEAST a 10-key rollover, enough for each of your fingers, so you shouldn’t have any issues with ghosting in a normal setting.

    This performs on par with Cherry MX switches, no doubt. They feel strikingly similar to my brown switches, but this keyboard is way cheaper. There is minimal key wobble, and the entire keyboard is sturdy. It’s about 3 and a half pounds, so it can be transported with ease. Also, it’s a full-sized keyboard, so it has a number pad for all of you data entry people. In an office setting, I probably wouldn’t suggest using this—it will drive your coworkers insane. I’m using this in a household environment, so I may drive my family insane, but that’s okay.

    To top it off, this keyboard looks amazing. It’s a nice blend of white plastic and brushed aluminum with the plastic being on bottom. It has two feet on bottom in case you like your keyboards propped up. Finally, it looks very easy to clean—compressed air should do the trick. If not, the key caps can be easily pulled off with your fingers, a tool, a debit card, or a guitar pick—or something else along those lines.

    Overall, this keyboard is a steal for $49. If you have one of those cheap, mushy membrane keyboards, do yourself a favor and pick this up. You’ll be glad you did.
