    I am not a huge fan of mechanical keyboards - I know that there's switches for everyone, but I really do not like the click that mechanical keyboards make. I've worked with laptops for most of my life, so having this membrane keyboard feels familiar and comfortable to me. Don't get me wrong, it's not silent - but it has a much less audible click than any of the Cherry MX switches. It's a medium profile keyboard, so it's not low profile like a laptop, but it's not awkwardly high like some keyboards.

    As far as RGB - this keyboard's lights are PHENOMENAL. They look incredible, and there's a bunch of options for you to play with and figure out what you like. It's nice to have brightness settings and color modes without opting into a software and playing around - they're just right on the keyboard.

    It feels great, looks great, isn't too hard to clean, and at $49.99, is the fraction of what a mechanical RGB keyboard will cost you. This is a great budget keyboard that feels great to type on, is nice to look at, and won't break the bank.

    Very comfortable keyboard. The RGB on it is very nice, and it comes with an option called gamer mode to disable the windows button so you dont accidentally press it which is a nice touch and means they put thought into this. Other than that it looks and feels awesome.

    from completed build cool guy

    Wanted a nice RGB keyboard and mouse that didn't require software. I use the first preset which matches almost perfectly with my mouse of a different brand. I don't care for RGB, I really only got it for backlit lighting, but that doesn't take away from it's beauty.
