[Review] Loving the asthetics (Tronsmart TK09R)

Image

Got this keyboard from Amazon today and so far it's one of my favorites. The RGB looks good and is configurable on the 3 zones - Key caps, logo and strips at the sides.

The build quality itself is not bad as well, key caps has little to no wobble, and I couldn't bend the board so it's nice they didn't cheap when it's comes to it's structure. The key switch is Outemu Blue which is kinda nice, a little bit loud but I am wearing headphones most of the time so it doesn't bother me. Still though, wanted to see different key switch options for the model but currently it's all they have.

The wrist pad is made of smooth plastic and is something new to me, at the one hand it takes more desk space which I value, but at the other hand I do feel much more comfy typing now as I don't need to rest my wrists in an elevation and they are right behind the keys. I feel like they could've made it better if it the rest was detachable, so you could pick up what option would you like

This type of post is basically a quick-review, just sharing thoughts and first impressions with you all. I'll update if the keyboard fails horribly or something, but hopefully it won't happen. Currently I'd say it's a pretty good value for the amount of RGB and nice aesthetics you get for the price. I recommend buying the keyboard off Amazon (https://goo.gl/R6R52a) so you got 30 day return window if the keyboard fails on you or doesn't fit your liking.

I'm sorry but could you take better pictures of the keyboard ? I mean all we see is a backlit keyboard, we don't see much of this aesthetics you're talking about :D

Sure thing, here are few other pictures I've taken, one from a different angle and one in the light.

Typing test I just made:


By the way you can also check the link in the original post for the product page, many pictures there.

Nope, I love chinese mechanical keyboards. wish I had a reason to purchase a k70, but there isn't one for me when this one not only comes cheaper, but also looks better due to more lighting in a cheaper price point. Noted 2 cons though - Way too big for people who value desk space (non detachable wrist rest), and comes only in blue switches. Would love to see Gaterons Browns or Reds but oh well.

Looks decent to be honest, how much would you rate it out of 5?
