This appears to be a keyboard based from the same China manufacturer, there were a few brands that sold this exact keyboard with different keycaps, I personally have the Nighthawk X9 or something (I forget) and I'm typing on it right now. My version used Cherry MX Browns and plain white LED lighting. Another version called Xarmor also made this keyboard. The first gen only had 1x USB plug and on some ports it didn't provide enough power, I noticed sometimes my keyboard would disconnect if it was daisy-chained, but this newer version looks to fix that. Generally the keyboard is your standard affair, having used other keyboards I would probably spend more for something "higher end".

True. I have the Rosewill version of this with Cherry MX Browns and blue LEDs. Overall, I'm very happy with it for the price-point. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823201061R.
Whats with the bottom row
Greetings people! My name is Joakim, and i'm from Denmark. :) I am very interested in this keyboard but in Denmark we use the Nordic keyboard layout, and i noticed that since this keyboard is sold in the US it ofcourse comes with the English/US layout or whatever. I was wondering if there is anyway for me to get this keyboard in the Nordic configuration? If not i want to know if some1 knows where i can buy just the key caps that are different from the US ones. Thanks in advance!
Sincerely Joakim :D

Hi! You can actually buy a QPAD keyboard which is the original one. Depending on what MX Switch you want to get there are different models depending on the switch. I would actually call this the rip-off of the QPAD MK-90 but well oh well. I know there are QPAD MK-90's in nordic layout because I am from Sweden myself and have owned a QPAD keyboard. Hope you enjoy the keyboard.
Are the Kailih key switches replaceable in this keyboard? That is, could I buy some different key switches and swap them into this keyboard?
dblml320
You would have to desoldering the switches
Looks just like my qpad mk 90 i bought a few years ago...
Has anyone noticed an issue with this board freezing up? I thought I was going nuts but I saw an amazon review which noted that pressing "Fn + F6" three times would cause it to stop sending keys and you had to unplug the keyboard to get it to work again. The version I have (which admittedly is pretty old now) has this problem, but despite that I like the rest of the board enough that I would consider buying another one if this issue has been fixed on the latest revisions.
I bought the 68 Magicforce for $62.99 I think a long time ago. It was worth it. I'm sure this is probably worth the funds too.
This probably belongs more at the 'tech' community than here. Fullsize, non-standard keyboards are just not very desirable.

What's non-standard about it?
coreyzev
Bottom row isn't standard
This looks a ton like my old Monoprice mechanical keyboard, though the Monoprice came with cherry mx switches. The monoprice keyboard that I have (and have since given to my kids to use on their computer) has been awesome.

I wish my g9's were still alive :( My favourite mouse ever.
This uses kailh switches like Razer used to do, and the RGB LEDs are exactly like Razer's RGB LEDs. This is basically a Blackwidow RGB but not as gaudy / ugly. Not bad.
EDIT: Wait, this also uses a non-standard bottom row that's exactly like Razer's old BW bottom row....that's a bit interesting. Personally the non-standard bottom row stops me from buying it though.

Razer doesnt use kailh switches, they used to use Razer branded switches made by kailh which imo are worse then these standard kailh switches which are still not very good, but now Razer has there switches made by greetech which is some how even worse.
Also the non-standard bottom row does suck, overall this keyboard is sadly kinda not very good.
LifelongCaboose
They used to use Kailh switches.
Been wanting to upgrade my keyboard for a while. But, how long do these hold up? I see little to no reviews on this keyboard. Im not a huge typing or keyboard enthusiast. I wouldnt mind buying one of the $100 ones from Razer, Corsair, Logitech, etc. but if I can get it for much cheaper with the same or barely noticeable difference then I wouldnt mind.

As far as I'm aware, Razer's orange switches are the same switches that are in this keyboard, so it should be essentially the same quality as theirs.
I can't attest to this one but I've had the Azio MGK1-K for about 6 months and I've never been happier. It's the second keyboard I had the first was a Razor Widowmaker and it just didn't feel well and I always felt like I was making typos for no reason at all. Also, my most used keys seemed to miss clicks occasionally, I think the switches were wearing down.
I think the bottom row not being standard would really make things odd for me being a gamer and a typer in one. There's a lot I do that just needs those buttons to be bigger. As far as price goes, I think this is a really good deal if you're willing to sacrifice. I think Kailh switches are just as good as Cherry, in fact the price makes me believe they are better. Cherry would be at least mentioning improvements to their switches or why they are better if in fact they were better. Their silence speaks volumes.
I noticed on the pictures that there is a button on the wristpad. Can anyone tell me what's up with that?
Rav91
It's not a button. Just for visuals apparently.
Source: have the same oem design that I got from newegg on black friday for $35
Make a version with European layout and I'll buy it.
SpoonUnit
Unfortunately, that's more expensive. I might as well just wait for the G810 to go on sale (which it does quite often here) and buy that then.
If only the bezel and indicator light area weren't so ugly...
This looks just like the Max Keyboard RGB that is $200. So not bad.
There's no good reason to trust massdrop with your money, unless you want to get scammed but also want to wait for a few months before you realize that you got scammed. Just look at what happened to the Ducky Pocket drop from April! https://www.massdrop.com/buy/ducky-pocket-rgb-mechanical-numpad/talk

You're Virgule. I write notes to help me remember details like this. Might I suggest one of the webnotebook drops?
seidenfisch
I think you joined Massdrop for the wrong reason. You're getting a good deal on most things, NOT ALL THINGS, for the price of waiting. Honestly, I'm a part of Massdrop because I like the E-mailers that have things I like.
They aren't scamming anybody.
Would've got it if it was Cherry MX. Kailh at ~$70 is not worth it.

What is the purpose of these two metal strings? After I have changed my keycaps, the shift key can remove easily by just pressing the side of it. Is there a proper way to attach the shift key

Costar stabilizer, from the old keycap you should have two pieces of plastic with holes in that you can remove from the cap and install on the new.
Then you press one side of the metal bar into the cap, and the press it furter to that side as to allow you to connect the other side of the metal bar, then youcan ress it down to the switch. Atleast that's how i'd do it.
maradrianbelen
I really hate costar stabs. They don't feel any better to me than cherry style and they're a pain.
hi. how could i attach the wrist rest properly?? I struggling to attach it, and why arrow keys does not work on the numpad(numlock is off)
This keyboard looks identical to the Qpad MK-70 expect for the non-cherry switches.
I've purchased this keyboard as a replacement for my G710+, I plug my mouse into the back of they keyboard, however I have concerns that 100mah is not enough to support my G502 Proteus Core. Also, can I remove the switches on this keyboard so I can replace them if I want? Thanks.

shhh, let him enjoy his kailh's and rgb and "gamer" keyboards. If he's happy he doesn't have to buy a nice keyboard.
clonex10100
fuck off fam, if he likes his keyboard he likes his keyboard.
what do you have a against kalih? what do you have against rgb? its just a feature that alot of people enjoy and like. the g710 is still a nice keyboard.
Anyone have an opinion on this keyboard? I'm in the market for one in this price range, preferably rgb. I really had my heart set on the Arealer off of Amazon for $60 but if someone can give me a justifiable reason to choose this or another I'd certainly be willing to listen. I do a fair share of typing so I was leaning towards blue switches and I also like the idea of programmable macros and the accompanying software. Thanks in advance to all who read this and are willing to offer their insight.
Is this a clone of the Rosewill Apollo keyboard? Whats the difference?
Spectre27
Arguably this is a worse deal than buying an Apollo considering the switches, unless you really like that RGB lighting :-|
Im really considering buying this keyboard since it looks pretty nice and it has RGB, but the $80 price tag seems just a bit too much. especially since im coming from a $15 membrane keyboard. if it was $65-$70 id get it for sure.

that's cheap for mech keyboards my friend
shadowkon626
Wait until you get into custom keyboards if you think this is expensive.
can i customize each individual key to be a different color of my choosing? or am i limited to the presets that are already on the keyboard. an example would be, every key is green, but WASD are red, and my arrow keys are blue, and my number pad is white.
shadowkon626
You can have your custom light settings according to the video by Klictro linked in the product description.
I am using a razer black-widow stealth with Razer Orange switches rn as my main keyboard. thinking about buying this, what im wondering is if its much of an improvement from my current one?
vampier206
Probably not. It uses Kalih brown switches, which are basically identical to Razer Orange. I'd only switch for two reasons: 1.) it's defective or 2.) you really hate the Razer Synapse software.
Nethersprite
lol,yeah im passing on this thanks
Jeez, all but the extreme close-ups are out of focus; too lazy to take the macro lens off?
The wording for this keyboard's feature description sounds like marketing-speak: "For gamers, this 104-key peripheral is equipped with N-key rollover and a gaming cluster with anti-ghosting capability..."
That looks to me as if the keyboard as a whole does not have anti-ghosting capabilities, only a portion of the keyboard refered to here as the "gaming cluster." Also, what qualifies as a gaming cluster? WASD[ctrl][space]?
100 mA is quite bad for power output on the USB ports. Guys, keep in mind that most phones charge adequately at 10 times that.

Yea, its a usb 3.0 samsung flash drive, this exact model https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-METAL-Flash-MUF-64BA-AM/dp/B013CCTJKE
nickaa827
Haha, looking at the amazon questions for that drive one person claims that the drive gets ridiculously hot if a transfer takes more than 15 seconds. It probanly takes more than 100mA to heat up a drive that fast. ;)
It is interesting, though, that a drive plugged into a USB2 port would need the juice if it is limited to ~35-50MB/s (for practical purposes... technically the max transfer rate would be 60MB/s, but you have USB protocol overhead that limits actual data transfer) by USB2.0's max speed. USB3.0 devices are allowed to pull 900mA, so some of the high speed devices use multiple flash chips and a striping controller that reads/saves a chunk of the data to each chip simultaneously to reach those high speeds (similar to several drives in a RAID0 array). Because of this it is effectively several USB2.0 drives all plugged into one USB port.
