Havit HV-KB390L Low Profile Keyboard Review

Rating: 8.0.

Havit claims that its HV-KB390L is the thinnest mechanical keyboard made to date, coming in at just 22.5mm at its thickest point. It’s a pretty strong statement, but is there actually a demand for thinner desktop keyboards? At £59.99 it’s reasonably priced which could entice those looking for their first mechanical keyboard, but is there any real benefit to the smaller form factor which would justify this purchase?

KitGuru says: The Havit HV-KB390L low profile keyboard not only offers a great typing experience thanks to its lower travel key presses, but the Kaihl blue mechanical switches offer lovely tactile feedback as well. There are some more gaming oriented features which help it standout in this market segment, but ultimately thanks to its solid build quality it’s a good option for those looking for a budget keyboard for both typing and gaming.
