Late last month we first reported on the Speedlink Ultor mechanical keyboard, and now a review unit has arrived at XSReviews HQ. This frameless mech certainly looks good, but can it deliver a great gaming experience? Let’s take a look.
The Speedlink Parthica is a big hunk of keyboard, complete with gamer-style LEDs on every side and a whole bunch of extra keys. These style of keyboards have fallen out of favour recently, as mechanical keyboards have become more popular, but is there something worthwhile with this old style of keyboard design?
Out of the blue, a very nice gentleman from Cherry Corp UK asked me if I’d like to review their latest mechanical keyboard: the MX Board 6.0. It’s quite shiny, with 100 levels of red backlighting, Red Cherry MX switches, and full layout and slightly low-profile keycaps.
So of course I agreed, the keyboard arrived and I got down to work. I used it for a lot of things — gaming, writing tech articles—but I forgot to actually use it to write a review of the keyboard itself. Today, that ends: here’s my review.
Today I’m taking a look at a keyboard that’s a little different from the normal gaming fare. It’s not mechanical, it doesn’t have any crazy RGB lighting, and there are no special macro keys. It does have one unique ability though: it’s waterproof. And that means if you spill your Mountain Dew on it (or less nerdy foodstuffs), then you can simply wash it under the tap, dry it off and and be back to fragging in just a few minutes. Manfacturers Xenta have sent us one to try, so let’s see how it performs.
Today we’re looking at QPAD’s latest mechanical keyboard, the top-of-the-line MK-90. We found the mid-range MK-70 solid if uninspiring, but with fancy LED backlighting and some added features the MK-90 has a chance to do better. Let’s see whether these added features are worth the price premium!
Today we’re taking a look at Element Gaming’s first mechanical keyboard, the Beryllium. At £80 it’s one of the cheapest mechanical keyboards on the market, but it still offers a fair few features – backlighting, N-key rollover, media controls, a wrist rest and a pretty (if familiar) design. Let’s take a look at how it shapes up!
