  1. SURPRISE MF says the keyboard when you open it cause this one screams quality!I have been using the Corsair k95 rgb with cherry mx red for about 18months, and i had some issues with the leds, its gone for an exchange, now i thoughg lets try these cheap options by the time it returns, n see whats the diff bet a 16k and a 4k keyboard offering supposedly, the same features. so heres my list of whats there and what u r missing on by not buying an expensive alternative:1. The mechanical BLUE switches are really good with nice feedback, they are not cherry but are good quality none the less.2. The build quality is good, yes it is. 4k for such a build is great. Metalplate board with plastic sorrounding is same as a CM storm mechanical board.3. RGB Elements are great, inbuilt themes are nyc and you can download the siftware as well to customize.4.Macros are somewhat available u can customize from the software availble from the website mentioned in the manual.Now what u r missing out by not buying a more expensive mech keyboard;1. the keys are a bit wavy at times, can woble( u will not observe this unless u have worked with a corsair keyboard, even razor has same issues with keys)2.No dedicated media keys, u need to press fuction n then f1 f2 and so on for media playback.3. The lack of proper software support, u can customize but u cant save the profiles on the keyboard, so u have to keep the software open for the customization to show on the keyboard and if u close the soft or restart the changes are also gone.I can pinpoint more but honestly this is one really nyc piece of hardware and you wont regret it SPECIALLY IF U R MOVING FROM A MEMBRANE ONE.To all the gamers PLEASE SWITCH TO MECHANICAL KEYBOARDS, U WILL NOT REGRET IT!

  2. Some keys just stopped working in the middle of a game after 3 months of usage. would not recommend this product at all. cant type much cuz have to use on screen keyboard for many letters.

  3. It’s been a while since I purchased the product and it’s hardly given me any issues so far. Got it for 4k in December, 2017. There was this brief time when one of the keys was mysteriously registering multiple presses, but the issue went away just as randomly as it came. Other than that, I have no complaints about the product.

  7. Keyboard has ghosting issue serious one. You cant press s d and i at the same time. Other than that there is no problem. My Rs. 300 keyboard works fine. What a waste. I dont know why the S D I press at once when holding won’t register as an button input. The uneven back lighting I can live with that.Delivery of package was good. I recieved the box a bit crumpled. I am giving it a 3 star

  8. Writing this review is very emotional for me as I had to bid goodbye to it today. It was like an extension of my body for over 2 YEARS. It was one of the best keyboards I have used.I bought it in January of 2017 for ₹2000. Since then this keyboard has gone through a lot of torture. I play games a lot and many times I would hit the keys brutally during intense moments (READ RAGING). Nothing happened to it though. During it’s service, it had tea/water/cold drinks spilled on it multiple times. Cleaning the keyboard and drying it was more than enough to get back at playing. The RGB Light intensity didn’t reduce over the years. The Blue light is exactly the same as that of Logitech so it paired well with my G300S and G402. The Red is the same as that of the fans of my case so it was a match there too.Here are some of the PROSThe FN Keys are really handy along with swappable “WASD” and ARROW KEYS.The Wristrest is big enough and although made of plastic does not irritate the skin.It’s a silent,”laptop like” keys. Great for late night gaming.The keys are spaced apart perfectly FOR MY HAND SIZE. So no fatigue over long durations.But it has a few CONS too.Some of the keys (Spacebar, Backspace, etc) are not completely lit and it looks kind of bad but they are not easily noticeable.The RED BAND along the bottom stands out when the keyboard lights up in some other color.The Numbers in the NUMPAD never worked for me. Might be a software problem.To conclude, I would say that if you are not head over heels for Mechanical or “Mechanical Feel” keyboards, this is a good and durable keyboard.

  9. Positive:1. RGB works2. Keyboard has a nice matte finish3. The keys are soft to press and overall responsive4. The logo is nice addition5. Price – and it was a lesson (dont buy cheap)Cons:1. The size of the keys is unconventional, i play CS GO and when replacing my lenovo keyboard assumed that the manufacturer will follow standards prevalent. But herein the keys are larger than normal which resulted in me having to change my game play (cannot duck anymore or in the middle of a busy firefight i end up on my windows desktop page!)2. Return policy of Amazon requires the product to be defective, damaged or not functioning. Hence i cannot replace this useless piece of junk because Amazon is more than happy to ship this back to me, albeit in a new packaging. When your product isnt in line with the prevalent manufacturing standards you (Amazon) need to have an option to return the product and for pete’s sake just provide store credit if not a refund.Very disappointed Amazon.3.

  16. Your browser does not support HTML5 video.  This is great entry level mechanical keyboard.This keyboard has blue mechanical switch from Chinese manufacturer not cherry MX but still its nice. it has nice clicky sound. Gamers and typist gonna love it. This is not actual RGB keyboard. It has rainbow lighting you can change lighting Mods but color on every line is fixed like from top to bottom 1-Blue, 2-Red, 3-Orange, 4-Green, 5-Purple, 6-White.i attached video with all lighting mods.and some images this is how keyboard look at night.

  17. The keyboard is amazing for this price point,You know the good part, ill tell you about the bad part of this keyboardI am updating this after 4 month of heavy usage and gaming! (28/11/2019)1-some people might find lack of stabilizer in keys as a issue2-Only top plate is aluminum, BUT KEYBOARD IS STILL 0.98KG3-Jixian switches are soldered to the pcb, but at this price its ok4-Lacks in built memory , so you have to reset lighting again and again once you turn it off.5-Aluminium plate can pick some scratches if not handled carefully6- MOST IMPORTANT the cable being not braided can be issue for some7-The user manual has a lot of mistakes and has wrong features written , i mailed cosmic byte to confirm , they denied any such features mentioned.8- Ok,after usage i realized, that the key puller is real flimsy, please take good care to avoid any such damages.I got this keyboard for under 1900/- so, wait for the right time and buy it at cheaper rates, because if you are willing to spend above 2k rupees, the Zebronics max pro would be a better option.However at this price point. the keyboards build quality is amazing, I am using it right now to type this review!So buy it when you get a good price or buy a combo if possible.

  18. I’ve been using this keyboard for past 2 days and typing feels amazing, mechanical keyboard feels great, the soft tactile key presses and feedback is so satisfying. The only problem I faced so far is the lighting pattern. On this keyboard the lighting pattern tends to reset every time when I turn on my PC. It is very annoying and I hope Cosmic Byte does something to fix this problem, and also I don’t find any drivers for this keyboard.I bought it for Rs 1745 and for this price i think its a steal.Edit :- I’ve contacted CB for the above problem and the solution is to keep pressing “FN + ESC” for 10 secs and it works,also their customer service is very helpful and very prompt. 10/10 for overall experience.
