Decent no-frills mechanical keyboard with easy lighting options plagued by lazy macro implementation.
Pros:easy light profilesminimalist designdoes what it's supposed to do.Matte finish more resistant to fingerprintsgood keyboard for the price (got it on sale for 60)cons:1st keyboard was doa (never had this happen before on a keyboard)macro implementation is lazy beyond words. See "other thoughts" sectionmacro lock doesn't seem to work. (fn + mr keys)the key bed is recessed like a traditional keyboard, so more difficult to clean.No dedicated macro/game keysother thoughts:doa: never had a keyboard arrive doa on me before, shout out to outletpc for taking care of it quick-like!Macro record: the recording process itself is okay: you press mr, select your key, record your macro, then press mr to end recording.Question is why the hell would you overwrite any standard keys?? Sure you could use it for specific games/apps but when you get back to general use you have to delete your macro. Dedicated keys would have been nice.Speaking of deleting macros, this is probably the worst part of the keyboard. The official instruction on how to delete a macro is to macro record the same key to itself. The implementation of this is so lazy, i don't even understand why they bothered with the macro record.Example: to unbind "z" as a macro button, you press mr, select z, press z again, then press mr to close.What they forget to tell you is that the macro record also records keystroke duration. That means if you tap out a macro you want to record, the macro replays in the same speed you typed it. So when you try to unbind a key per their instructions, any future keystrokes on the key you unbound is exactly as long as your recorded keystroke. This means the keyboard no longer recognizes whether you're tapping the key or pressing and holding the key down!! I had the misfortune of accidentally macro recording over l-ctrl and i had one hell of a time trying to figure out how to reset the keyboard (l-ctrl+ctrl+l-alt) until i realized the macros record duration as well. You can imagine what this does when you need to hold down a key during a game or some such and you can't because the stupid macro deletion didn't work as intended, which means you have to reset the entire keyboard every time.On top of this, the macro record lock doesn't seem to work, so have fun figuring out what happened when you have other people using your computer and accidentally hitting the mr button!
