Below is a picture of how the package looked when it arrived.
Blue switches. I replaced the ESC key with the red keycool key.
Sitting on my desk. It's not as white as it appears in pictures. In real life it has a slight off white color.
Some key alignment issues can be seen (XC and AS)
It's my first mechanical keyboard so I can't compare it to other mechanical keyboards or switches. Compared to my rubber dome G15 the buttons on this keyboard feel more solid. The keyboard as a whole is quite heavy and is well built. The blue switches are quite noisy and feel pretty heavy. I actually expected them to be a bit lighter. Maybe because I was focused more on the plastic part of the switches than the actual springs .
Overall I am happy with the keyboard, it's a good buy for the price. I payed €68 including shipping. There were no additional charges (custom, VAT).
So in summary,
- * Relatively cheap
* Solid build
* Includes extra color keys, key puller and a bag
- * Uneven key gaps
* Slight spacebar rattling
It will take some time getting used to a mechanical keyboard, but pressing buttons on it is a lot of fun .
