Speedlink Ultor Mechanical Keyboard Review

Rating: 7.0.

While many peripheral makers are currently chasing down the RGB trend, there is still plenty of room in the market for a standard mechanical keyboard. Today, we are taking a look at the Speedlink Ultor, a mechanical keyboard offering up red switches, macro support and more, all wrapped up in a frameless, 10-keyless design.


The Speedlink Ultor sits at the £80 price point, which is fairly close to mid-range for a mechanical keyboard. Under the caps, you will find Kailh Red switches which offer faster actuation compared to Blue or Brown switches. This makes them quite a popular pick amongst gamers, though typists will miss the lack of tactile feedback.

Features and Specifications:

  • Kailh Red Switches.
  • Customisable LED keyboard illumination.
  • Freely configurable key/button functions.
  • Progressive Gaming Mode with 5 profiles, 6 macro keys, swappable WASD and arrow keys, remappable keys plus Windows key deactivation.
  • Maximum gaming comfort thanks to extra-high raised keys for precise keystrokes.
  • Simple layout with compact, frameless design and aluminium body.
  • N-key rollover for extreme anti-ghosting.
  • Powerful macro editor integrated into the driver.
  • Internal memory (64kb) for importing/exporting profiles.
  • USB polling rate configurable up to 1,000Hz (ultra polling).
  • Selectable response time down to 1 millisecond.
  • Rapid access to 12 practical additional functions.
  • Flexible USB cable with hard-wearing sheath (1.7m).
  • Dimensions: 350 × 122 × 33 (W × D × H).
  • Weight: 680g.
