I go through keyboards like my underwear, at least one every 6 months, with work, video editing, gaming, everyday use, I go through these things like crazy. I have gotten the cheapest ones from 5Below, and some of the most expensive ones. I took a chance on this budget friendly keyboard as it had checked 95% of the check marks I was looking for in a keyboard (RGB, full size, blue switches, metal housing, media controls, macros keys). I have used this keyboard for about 6 months now, and this has by far, been the best keyboard I have ever used. Beating the higher end brands. The blue switches are amazing, nice, tactile feel. Metal housing provides a nice feel, with hardly no flex. RGB on the keys, and the side of the keyboard is amazing. media controls are great. The only downfall I would say it that is doesn't have a wrist rest (have to purchase one separately) And the wrist rest isn't magnetic (like the past Redragon keyboard I have purchased before. That and a USB passthrough for items like your mouse, would be great. If those 2 items were on here, this would be a solid 10/10 for me. Amazing keyboard tho, at a great price.
Even after much use of the keyboard and after a year and a half, every time I type on it I get excited by the clicks it makes. The smartest purchase I have made, an excellent and much better keyboard than expensive keyboards from other companies
Man, I am so impressed! The keyboard sounds GREAT! Clickety click click CLACK!! I freaking LOOOOVE it! Super solid, well built, great lights. Redragon PROVES that a company DOESN'T have to take advantage of it's clients. Companies CAN make great hardware, that enhances the computing experience for all, without charging $200 for a darn keyboard! Redragon knows this, they charge a fair price, it's one of the top keyboards I have EVER owned, and I don't feel like they took advantage of me. Life is good, friends.
I have purchased two of these keyboards. One for my home (the original purchase) and one for my office at work (latest purchase). I have found the keyboard to be very well built and great to type and work with. In terms of gaming, it has additional features that I don't really use, but you can program keyboard macros and things like that with it.
The RGB effects are very easy to set up and the stock effects will probably satisfy most users.
I selected blue switches for both of my keyboard purchases because I love the clickety-clack! And boy do these keyboards have the clickety-clack! Nothing is more satisfying than typing up an annoying work e-mail and being met with a symphony of clicking and clacking (my opinion).
The frame of the keyboard is composed of an aluminum top piece, which is very sturdy and a typical hard plastic bottom. It has little legs for propping the board up at an angle if you prefer. The keyboard also comes with additional spare switches and special tools for removing the keys for cleaning or replacement.
On the whole, I don't think you will find a finer keyboard for this price. The Red Dragon brand has impressed me and it makes me think twice about some of the more prominent brands and their aggressive pricing.
If anything comes up with either keyboard, i'll modify my review, but I've had the one at home for quite some time with no problems or complaints.
