This keyboard is value for money

A great mechanical keyboard with real Cherry MX Reds, which I haven't been able to find at a better price point than this. Only complaints are the lack of a context menu key and the fact that some of the letters seem to be losing visibility after only a couple of weeks of use.


April 2019

Having used 'flat' keyboards and originally in the olden days being used to an electronic typewriter keyboard, was looking for a keyboard with the missing 'bounce' and 'feel' that they used to have . This fulfils and exceeds my expectations. Fast, responsive and feels good to use. Excellent value. Really is Worth It. Overjoyed ( even though not a gamer).Had to make a minor adjustment, but it was simple , even for an ageing technical illiterate like me!


April 2019

Great product. Way sturdier than I expected. I quite enjoy its minimalistic design. Although some lighting wouldn't have hurt. Very responsive during gaming.

Absolute bargain for this mechanical keyboard with Cherry red switches. Couldn't find anything close to this in terms of price and quality. It really is a pleasure to type on compared to the membrane keyboards I'm used to and it's much easier to keep clean. I would highly recommend it.


January 2019

Was in the market for a mechanical keyboard at a lower price, better than some of the copys using non-cherry switches and I cant fault it. Works better than my non-cherry key version that has keys fail after 6 months

good keyboard for the price, grandson very happy

I got this as a replacement to my dying MS Comfort Curve 2000. The K83 is a very sturdy keyboard. The key action is quite light - more so that my previous on Comfort Curve 2000, however it does feel quite good to type on. The main difference with membrane keyboards is that keys are more stable. Together with the light stroke, solid chasis and stable keys it feels great. On top of that it's only ~40. The only objective drawback is that there is no key rollover, so no response after 3 or more keys IIRC are pressed. Subjective drawback is that the keys and keyboard overall are quite tall, necessitating some time to get used to it after the slim MS Comfort Curve 2000. Another subjective drawback is the absence of dedicated media keys or at least a FN key on the left side - as now it requires two hands to adjust volume at times. Whether you need a new keyboard or want to dabble with mechanical ones amids the hype, this does come highly recommended due to the high quality and affordable price - which makes it even easier to adjust to drawback described above.

Mechanical switches, 64KRO and a design that doesn't build up gunk. Damn good.
