1024x768-MK50-Overview-right

A top-notch mechanical keyboard that does the basics brilliantly. It has media keys, and full n-key rollover if you connect it via the default PS/2 adapter, but few other features. No lighting, no drivers, no fancy extras. Nevertheless, the key action is sublime. It’s based on Cherry Red switches, so has featherlight key resistance and a pleasingly noisy clack. Sadly, there’s no easy way to disable the Windows key, and the lack of illlumination means that you’ll have to play in a well-lit room. If you can’t stretch to the higher-spec MK80 or MK85, it’s excellent kit for the price. 4/5
