  • This keyboard just arrived today and I'm already in love with it. I bought this to replace a cheapo mech keyboard I bought a few months back (for like $40). Coming from using membrane keyboards my whole life, I thought that just getting any old mechanical keyboard would be a total game-changer. And while it was better, it wasn't exactly great or anything. Even though it had blue switches (albeit cheapo ones), it wasn't, like, super fun to type on; and the clicky sound wasn't as . addictive, for lack of a better word, as I hoped it would be. Maybe not a total letdown, but neither was there any 'wow' factor, so to speak.

    But this keyboard right here, my God. This thing makes my fingers tingle (in a good way.) I think I was welling up with tears a little bit . The keycaps are double-shot ABS; and even though that's not the material Leopold is known for these days, they feel damn good. The switches are the real deal too: beautiful little click,buttery-smooth springs; and there is a sound-absorbing plate that adds so much to the feel and sound of this board. It's pretty heavy too, so that probably helps with the sound and feel as well.

    In short, I type a lot and play PC games a lot. I am at this desk A LOT. I was looking for a high-quality keyboard made by a reputable company with genuine Cherry MX switches, preferrably blue, and thick double-shot ABS keycaps. And I found one here for less than 100 bucks!

    Thanks mechanicalkeyboards.com, you guys ROCK!

    Pros:
    Top-notch build quality, very solid
    Heavy, and great rubber feet (won't slide around, inclined or flat)
    Keycaps are thick and they feel great
    Cherry MX switches
    Amazing acoustics - the clicky keys, sound-absorbing plate, as well as the weight and overall construction -- all of these things together make this board sound great.
    Price: This feels like a $250 keyboard to me. I paid $99 for it.

    Neutral
    The font on the keys doesn't look great. It doesn't look bad either though, at least not to me. Just kinda meh.
    No backlighting. Might be worth noting, but that kind of stuff is not important to me.

    Cons:
    I wish they had indicator light on the caps, scroll and number lock keys. There are indicator lights on the board above the number pad, But it would be cool if they were actually on the keys too. (Is that even something they could have done?)

    One final thought:
    You really don't hear the name Leopold mentioned too often (at least I don't) when people are talking about good keyboards for gaming! Even though I'm pretty sure there are Leopold boards with RGBs and all that stuff. For competitive gaming you want a high-quality keyboard, the highest quality you can get. I read a review on Amazon or somewhere, the guy said that Leopold board he purchased ". just oozes quality". I can now confirm that this is an accurate description.

    And I will tell you right now, this is a SICK gaming keyboard, don't doubt it for a minute.
