I like this keyboard as much as I expected to. It has the comfort of a laptop board (if you find that comfortable; at the very least for me, it’s my usual board). The caps are appropriately labeled with useful labels. I don’t love the very clicky switches, but that’s personal preference. I found the bluetooth to be not quite as reliable as the Anne Pro (which for me works perfectly). Overall though, I’m quite impressed with the board!
I have a short history of reviewing keyboards, and a growing collection. I tend to like smaller boards, and I’m pleased that GearBest sent out this Motospeed CK61 for review. Here’s the review, including teardown and thoughts! Also, my first box switches!!
One of my goals for reviewing keyboards is to get into reviewing some ‘higher quality’ boards. I’d love to teardown a Mechmini, or a Minivan, for example. Or build up a Bantam-44. A lot of it has been about switches. Third tier switches are fine, but Gateron and Cherry would be great!
The Xiaomi Yuemi MK01B meets all my criteria. I’m pleased to have a look; read on!
I have another 104 key board today – this time just like one I reviewed already. This is the James Donkey 619 104-key keyboard. Whether it’s perfect for me or not, I hope the review will help you decide if it’s perfect for you. As this 104 key is much like the 87 key, much of this review will be very similar to the 87 key review.
I’ll be honest, this board just showed up one day from GearBest. I don’t remember asking for it (I probably did) but … It’s the UK version of this ELE board. Which means it’s ISO layout. Anyway, I can still test it! So here’s the review of the ELE Elenter Game1-UK mechanical keyboard.
Truth be told, I’ve had an Obins Anne Pro for quite a while. When the opportunity came to review one, I thought I’d branch out from my normal switches, and get a different colorway in for review. So I can say up front that I knew I’d like this board, and now I have two of them.
Read on for a deeper look!
Gravitating closer and closer to the keyboards I really like most…. after a 104 key board, then smaller board… now this James Donkey 619 87 key board, just right! (?) Whether it’s perfect for me or not, I hope the review will help you decide if it’s perfect for you.
My first mechanical keyboard review (hopefully not my last!)! This post includes a teardown and internals photos, and much more!
