Upgrade your computing experience with a high quality mechanical keyboard. Mechanical keyboards offer more precision, improved typing feedback, and what many consider to be a more satisfying sound and feel when compared to traditional rubber dome/membrane style keyboards that can often be described as “mushy” or “lifeless”. Many typists report being able to type faster on a quality mechanical keyboard like our USB-MECH104RW. This linear red switch keyboard is best suited for gamers seeking quicker reaction times to give them an advantage over the competition. Red linear mechanical keyboard switches feel different than "clicky" or "tactile" variants.

Due to the of the lack of any tactile feedback (tactile bump / click), when the switch is depressed the time and effort required to actuate a switch is less than other switch types (clicky/tactile) due to their smooth linear travel. This is even more evident when rapidly pressing the same key repeatedly which is common in gaming, sometimes referred to “spamming” a key. Red switches are also a great addition to an office workspace where clicky and tactile mechanical switch keyboards may be too loud, causing a disruption for others. Mechanical Switches With many new Cherry MX-style mechanical switches saturating the market such as Gateron, Greetech, ET9, Kailh, and more, Plugable engineers evaluated a large variety to decide what switch we felt had the best combination of tactility and pleasing sound.

Durable Double-Shot ABS Keycaps Double-shot refers to a process where the keycap legend and keycap itself are two separately molded parts. The main benefit of this design prevents the legend (text on the keycap) from wearing off, making the keyboard far more durable than entry-level keyboards using traditional pad printing techniques which can often show signs of wear in a matter of weeks. Full N-Key Rollover (NKRO) Each key switch is individually addressed by the micro-controller chipset in this keyboard enabling full N-Key rollover and anti-ghosting for multiple key presses to register simultaneously giving gamers an edge against the competition.

Most keyboards only offer 6-key rollover or less and occasionally have limitations of what three keys can be pressed down at the same time limiting the ability for macros and keyboard shortcuts. Anti-Ghosting Entry level keyboards may sometimes register phantom key-presses when typing certain key combinations. With anti-ghosting you will never get an unexpected input. Ergonomic Design & Special Functions The keyboard keycaps feature an ergonomic sculpted OEM (standard) profile to provide a gentle sloped arc preventing hand fatigue. Flip out rear feet elevate the keyboard about 1/2 inch for a more relaxed typing position.

Unlike most entry level keyboards the feet have rubber pads to prevent the keyboard from slipping. Gaming Functions Ability to swap WASD and Arrow key functions (useful for retro games or left handed users) Windows and context keys can be disabled Multimedia Function Key Shortcuts For convenient control while maintaining a compact form factor we’ve programmed numerous built in F1-F12 keyboard function shortcuts for multimedia/volume controls along with shortcuts to launch the calculator, email, and web browser apps (functions may vary depending on host computer operating system). Full-Size Keyboard with a Compact Footprint We know desk space can be at a premium - this keyboard measures in at just under 17 inches wide and 4 3/4 inches deep and is perfect for users who need more desk space.

Adjustable White Backlighting Back-lighting ensures easy key visibility regardless of ambient light. Features full on/off control along with dimmable brightness and a "breathing" mode where the light gently pulsates on and off. No special drivers or software required.

Cons: Backlight settings haven't or don't save.

Overall Review: I needed a new KB and decided to dip my toes into the mech world and came across this one. Non hyper gamer backlight? Check! Inexpensive? Check! Non-clicky keys? Check! Designed by a local Seattle company? Wasn't looking for that but loved the idea of supporting someone close.

The KB is solid and moves only when I want it to without too much effort on my desk and the light settings are customizable and easy to set up how you want, but they have not saved when I turned off my computer. This may be because of the lack of drivers, which I like that it doesn't use them and can easily work around having to reset the settings I want. The styling is traditional and subdued and shouldn't look out of place anywhere you take it. The form is economical with space, having little to no frame beyond the keyspace to make this full 104key fit in spaces better.

I like it and would definitely reccomend this to someone who wants a good inexpensive mech keyboard, or a non-flashy and no fuss mechanical option.
