PRO’s

  • Lots of lighting modes including nine preset gaming profiles suitable for a wide variety of games (plus one profile that’s programmable) & seven additional active lighting modes.
  • Full Anti Ghosting feature not limited to, certain keys.
  • Unlike red switches blues are excellent for MOBA, RTS and MMO games as well as for typing and productivity.

  • Cheap as chips (considering its a mechanical keyboard).
