4.0 out of 5 stars A good keyboard, with a few minor gripes., 2 Mar. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Qpad MK-80 Pro Gaming Backlit Mechanical Keyboard - UK Layout (Accessory)
This was my first mechanical keyboard, and the keyboard I was using previous to this one was the Razer Arctosa. I'll keep this short because there's not a whole lot to say.

The Good:
- great to type on, the slight click with the push of every key gives a strangely satisfying feel.
- The backlighting (which is already a great feature) can be set to several different levels, or turned off entirely.
- The bigger keys like the spacebar have several switches underneath so it feels the same no matter where you push down on it.
- The keys and wrist rest both have a rubberised texture, which is a lot nicer than the standard plastic feel I had with my previous keyboard.

The Bad:
- The wrist rest came a little bent, and it sticks up on the left side. It wasn't a big enough deal for me to send back and request another, but it's kind of annoying.
- The C key's LED kept turning off when it was pushed. I removed the key and put it back on and since when it's been fine, but it could lead to problems later on.
- the larger keys like the Enter and Backspace keys are only illuminated with one LED, meaning the lighting on the key is visibly dimmer for the arrows on those keys.
- The backlighting settings aren't remembered, and so when you turn your computer on, you'll have to reset the backlighting every time.

Conclusion:
A solid keyboard that I am happy with, however I do not feel as much of an improvement over my previous membrane keyboard as you'd expect when you put in as much money as you have to for most mechanical keyboards. If you play a lot of games or do a lot of typing, then it gets my recommendation, but otherwise, you might want to think twice before sinking £90 into a keyboard with some minor problems and in all likelihood a risk of it coming a little messed up.
