I've been using this for work for 6 moths or so, and I like it a lot. It's switches are blue, so I don't know if I'd use them for gaming, but for coding I like it a lot.

If you want a real gaming keyboard, Monoprice is clearing out their optical mechanical switch boards, both red and blue. They're actually RGB as well. $30.

I did a bunch of research on mechanical keyboards probably 6 or so months back. This model went on sale and the reviews weren't terrible so I decided to try it out. The W key would randomly not work, and as someone who was using this keyboard to play games, this quickly became infuriating. I contacted the company, they offered to send a replacement, I didn't even have to send the original back. Same thing started happening with this one with another key. I again contacted support and they said that they wouldn't send me another one, but would fully refund my money.

You can go through the reviews and see other stories similar to mine. Seems like they have no level of quality control. The lights and everything were cool, and you could even play snake on the lights, but I would prefer my keyboard to work as a keyboard.

Just a note to everyone, these are Blue switches, so basically they're going to be loud if you're typing a lot.

Non-Rgb sadly just backlit. Still a decent deal.

I wonder how its durability is compared to other brand, such as Cosair?

For those who haven't used mechanical keyboard before I suggest you test different switch types in person. I bought a keyboard with Kailh Blues and while I enjoyed it, I found my hands getting tired after a while. I've switched to Outemu Browns and I'm much happier with them.

A buddy of mine was having a similar problem with his E key and he blew it out with compressed air and it went away. his was a Cougar brand keyboard with mx black

I've owned this keyboard since 2017 and love it. It has loud, clicky keys though, if you don't want that don't get this keyboard. Also it's just rainbow colored with it's backlight. You don't get to pick the colors. I don't care a bit about that but some might. This is a great keyboard at a great price, IMHO and I've had zero issues with it.

I previously had a Corsair K95 on my home setup, purchased in 2014. The K95 didn't have the clicky keys that I wanted so that's why I bought the Aukey. I took the K95 to work and it is now my work computer keyboard and is going strong.... with one exception. The Corsair software can no longer find it, so no way to modify the colors or anything anymore. Other than that, the keyboard works fine

This is junk, likely will stop working within a few months. I build keyboards and have played with tons of switches, best combo switch for both gaming and typing is Gateron Yellow... My WPM went up by about 15 from the switches alone. I typically use MX Blues at work, also tried Box Navies which were like a straight up typing workout.... They all have their place, but Gateron Yellows FTW. I've heard Gateron Blacks are also pretty great, with more force required near the end of travel/bottom out. Don't waste money on this, go get a GMMK keyboard with the switches you actually want. End rant.
