For an RGB board that's well priced. Sure you lose the complex stuff, but tbh I think for many that's a selling point too. Certainly a number of folks like Ducky for the fact that nothing's handled via software, it's all on the board.

I couldn't live with it for two reasons..

1. Every time I look at it I think 'Tesco'

2. That font...what were they thinking.

No idea who is to blame for starting the trend with that fugly font, but its bloody everywhere, from no name chinese mech keyboards so cheap they can't even afford gateron switches all the way to high end Corsair stuff.

As these switches don't need to have any metallic contact with the PCB, you can physically remove them. You simply pull them off. This means that if other colour switches are released, you will be able to swap them yourself without having to solder.

Now that is truly awesome;)

At least the caps can be easily swapped out for something more tasteful

Lighting options are very limited


I fear the day humanity reaches this point.

I mean for god's sake, come on. It's a keyboard. I has backlighting you can control and customize to a certain degree, even the level of brightness, and it looks like a rainbow.

but noo.......... it's "very limited".

Not everything should follow Corsair or Razer.

So, what your saying is that compared to Corsair or Razer (or multiple other brands), it doesn't do as much, however, it does some things.... so... it is limited.

It isn't really RGB as you can only choose from around 8 colours, whereas a lot of other keyboards you can choose exactly what colour you want. You can't create any dynamic modes, you are stuck with the few options they give you, there is no way of getting new ones. The only thing you can actually do is change the per-key lighting. Compared to many boards, It is very limited. There is no other way to say it really.

If you bought a car, which mentioned it had full air conditioning, you would expect it to be able to increase the speed of the aircon, the temperature and have similar functions to the rest of the other air conditioning that is on the market ;)

I have a Bloody keyboard, and my experience has been positive with it so far. Got it on a $40 deal about a year ago. As far as they key actuation it's quite nice IMO. My niggle with it is the stupid Enter key sitting vertically on the right side and the \ key sitting just right of the tic (Apostrophe: ') mark. Other than that, great keyboard.
