Pros

  • Looks pretty cool.
  • Good build quality.
  • Nice fluid switches.
  • Great magnetic “invisible” stand.
  • Lots of software perks for gamers and customisation.

Cons

  • Layout is difficult to get used to (no UK ISO version).
  • Quite heavy for a portable keyboard.
  • Very short USB leads.
  • Plenty of other keyboards with similar functionality.

KitGuru says: The NT68 offers great build quality and the specs are good for the price point. Aesthetically it’s classy as they’ve gone for a retro look, but there really isn’t much we haven’t seen before.
