  • Purchased Sept 2018. My first mechanical keyboard. After quite a bit of research (online reviews, reddit) I landed on this make/model for its reputation as a good value keyboard with cherry switches, pbt double shot keys, and single led lighting (I wasn't that interested in RGB). I considered brands like Corsair, Coolermaster, and HyperX - however they all use abs plastic and cost more.

    Pros:
    -durable plastic
    -weight (definitely heavy for a plastic keyboard)
    -basic, easy to use lighting modes (Fn key)
    -Cherry Mx browns are a nice upgrade to my previous membrane switches
    -feels like a quality board, although i have limited experience with other mech keyboards

    Cons
    -I couldn't plug this into the same USB header as my logitech laser mouse - it appears that the power draw was too much for these two items together
    -Slight quality control issues with the keycaps (the provided colon/semi keycap was a quote/double quote key - however Mechanical Keyboard.com quickly remedied this for me)
    -The cap locks key has a led light in the top right corner that is non functional at the moment, odd
    -the num lock, caps lock, and scroll lock indicators are rather bright
    -These keycaps are the ones that have divisions, so O looks like () , D looks like I) , and B looks like I3 - minor gripe and I knew this going in
    -slight variations in the amount of backlight coming through the keycaps depending on where the engraving is on the cap

    Summary: My overall rating is a 4 or 4.5/5. As my first purchase through MechanicalKeyboards.com - I thought the customer service was spot on for quickly getting me the right keycap - so that is a huge plus. The keyboard feels durable, and the switches (mx brown) have a nice feel. The LED is just the amount of light that I want (other than the lock indicators). I am not sure if the power draw issue is related to my mouse, keyboard, or mobo - but I'm dealing with it by plugging my mouse into the front USB port (i have a mini PC, so options are limited). This keyboard definitely seems be the respected value player, especially at the $70 price point. You make a couple sacrifices, mainly the etching/engraving on the keycaps, but I found that pretty easy to overlook. Considering the equivalent Ducky keyboard costs >$30 more, and the big brands typically use ABS keycaps at this price - you really are getting alot of keyboard for the money. Would definitely purchase from MK again - free shipping and solid customer service. Looking forward to see what IKBC does to improve their designs in the future.

  • Keyboard layout and lasering is similar, if not exact to the Ducky One. The animations of the LED are similar to the ones of the Ducky as well. As for the Silver MX, I bought this blindly not knowing how it would type. I have Cherry MX Blues at home and decided to use the Silvers for work. The silvers are extremely sensitive, and definitely not what I'm used to. Any kind of light pressure triggers off typing which can be good or bad depending on the way you look at it. I'll continue to use this keyboard, however, I personally wouldn't recommend it unless you're willing to accept you'll be making lots of typos and mistakes due to high sensitivity.

  • Very solid keyboard. Only been using it a couple days, but the board is awesome so far. A little more on the cyan blue side for the LED color so beware if you're thinking it might be more of a true blue. Numlock, Caps lock, and Scroll lock lights are recessed into the keyboard a bit and hard to see over the top of the number pad unless you are looking almost straight down on the board or through the rows of the number pad keys. All of the changes to the LED mode can be changed on the board without the use of software. This is very beneficial in my opinion. The button on the top right of the board labeled "Cal" brings up the Calculator by default. Interesting feature that I don't know will be used, but given the right circumstances and usage of the board could be beneficial. Overall solid build and fantastic feeling board. The double shot PBT keys really help with noise, even without installing O-Rings. Highly recommend this board. Will update if there are any problems.
