Pros

  • IP42 rating.
  • Onboard macro recording.
  • G-Keys that support Elgato Stream Deck software.
  • Per-key RGB lighting is really seamless and powerful.

Cons

  • Plasticky build.
  • Very slippery on our oversized mouse mat.
  • 12-key rollover, not n-key rollover.
  • Mechanical keyboards are available for less money.

KitGuru says: At £75 this keyboard offers membrane keys, 12-key rollover and lacklustre build quality – a price of around £40-50 would be more acceptable. At £75 there are plenty of mechanical keyboards around at the same price, including Corsair’s own K60 RGB PRO which is only £10 more… but also the Logitech G413, as well as other options from Keychron, Aukey and Drevo. The K55 RGB PRO XT is worth considering but it may pay off to look elsewhere.
