"The design of the keyboard is surprisingly elegant and we did not expect the keyboard to be as high quality as it is. "
"If you’re looking for an affordable 60% keyboard with cutting-edge features like macro customization, backlighting, and BlueTooth connectivity, the Redragon K530 is an excellent option. "
"If you’re looking for a compact keyboard that is portable, can be wireless or wired and has good battery life, or a keyboard that allows you to connect to several devices via Bluetooth all at the same time, then this is definitely something worth looking into."
“This keyboard shares many similarities with the RK61, including Bluetooth and USB-C connectivity, but offers a slightly different layout, a dedicated switch for changing between connections on the left side and hot-swappable mechanical switches.”
"First things first, I'm not much of a gamer, so I can't speak to that experience. However, I type a lot for work and for fun and performance is a key factor for me.
My first mechanical was a clicky Logitech, which I rather liked a lot, but I found myself gravitating more and more to the quieter switches. I've currently got Bullet QL switches plus dampeners to really keep things quiet. It can keep up with me (I type fast) without sounding overwhelming to others around me, it looks great, and the form factor is fantastic.
I also like the multi connectivity (though I admit I've never used the 2.4GHz) and the option to go wired (and luckily USB-C) or not. The keyboard has been used on Linux (Ubuntu if you're counting), OS X, iOS, and Android.
The battery tends to last long enough that I don't really find myself being aware of how long it lasts ;) When it does go back, the keyboard output gets kind of wonky and the red LED on the side that indicates power starts blinking, which I find a useful and reasonable indicator.
As far as the keyboard itself, I've found using FN1 a reasonable way to get to those ""missing"" keys: function, arrows (on ASWD, which makes logical sense), page, insert/delete, home/end, print screen. It also works for backtick and tilde but I always find it a bit confusing as FN1+escape will provide both of those (you add shift to get the tilde). These characters are extremely valuable in the Linux command line, so I'm a little sensitive about it. That's a relatively small gripe given how much is jammed together in such a small space without doing weird stuff like having overly short keycaps. A compromise has to be made somewhere.
As for the bad stuff: the stabilizers are a little loud, especially the space bar. This is a mod I plan on dealing with soonish and I'll update accordingly. If you run clicky switches, you probably won't even notice.
Oh, and can't comment on the software as I've yet had the need to use it.
Regardless of any negatives, the price is fantastic for what you get. If you're looking for a functional and still upgradable mechanical keyboard but you don't want to pay prices normally associated with more custom mechanical keyboards, this is a great way to go."
I really enjoyed the sound of the keys and they were comfortable to type on. The only problem that I had was how small it is. I have generally small hands so I thought it wouldn't be a problem but I still felt smooshed when using it so I returned it. It was also pretty difficult to return and I needed to send multiple emails. I also had to pay for shipping to send it back which was pretty expensive.
So I have had a Razer Cynosa Lite and it got bad over time so I replaced it with the Redragon Kumara K522 and it was way better than the Razer Keyboard but I wanted something smaller and better so I got the Redragon Draconic K530 Keyboard and it was literally the best keyboard I've ever owned the keys feel amazing while being used and it has a sort of weight to it that I love and on top of that it's great for using wirelessly and if I'm using up another port or gaming it's perfect for that plus it last a heck of a long time I give the keyboard a 9/10 the only thing is that the Caps Lock doesn't glow up but other than that it's perfect!!!
No complaints from the kid! Uses it everyday for gaming and homework.
