    As others have said, it’s got great initial build quality and satisfying clicky keys, but if you ordered the programmable RGB version, you may be frustrated like me that the product manual and manufacturer’s website instructions do not explain how to program the keys. Here’s how to do it (thanks seller ChallengerUSA for providing these steps) 1. Press FN and the ` (Tilde) key. 2. Once the red lights on the right (the Caps and Scroll Lock indicators) are blinking, press FN and the right arrow key. 3. You’ll see the ` key glowing a certain color; press any key on the keyboard to set that key to the current color. 4. Press FN and the right arrow key to move to the next color. Press any keys you want for that color. 5. Repeat step 4 until you’ve got all the keys customized as you like. (You can also set individual keys to not be lit at all during this process.) 6. When you’re all done, press FN + ` to exit customization mode and use your keyboard as usual.Read more

    This keyboard is amazing! That is basically all I can say about it. I have had it for a few days, (will update if needed) and I already love it! Typing on it is so comfortible and feels like pillows on your fingers. The actuation force is perfect in my opinion and the clicky clacky sound is so satisfying (especially coming from a quiet membrane keyboard). I didnt really use the number pad at all so this tenkeyless keyboard is really nice for saving space. I got the fully RGB edition for $59.99, and it was definitely worth it! Right when I picked up the box I knew it is very good quality because of the weight. I took it out of the box and it felt really nice to the touch, and seems like it should be atleast $100. It also looks amazing with the RGB leds with all of the awesome different functions and colors. I was just using a membrane keyboard and have never had a mechanical keyboard before, nor have I even felt one. Already, I can tell I am in love with mechanical keyboards, I am typing this review with the keyboard right now and I dont want to stop typing because it feels sooo good! If you are looking for a fairly cheap mechanical keyboard, go with this one! It is definitely worth every penny, plus some. I would recommend if you like having different colored backlighting on your keyboard and have $60 to spend, then go with the RGB edition. I hit FN + end twice and customized the leds to the Seahawks colors. Go hawks! I did free shipping because I wasnt in a rush to get it (even though I wanted it as soon as possible) and it came in just about 7 days/1 week. Im sorry for the length of this review (if you are even reading this anymore please click the helpful button below) and I guess im gonna have to stop typing on this keyboard for now:( Anyway, I very highly recommend this keyboard! Have a good day. *UPDATE* I wanted to add that I figured out how to turn on the leds when the computer is shut down. All you have to do is either hold the FN button until it turns on or press FN + END or whatever so it will turn on. So now whenever I turn my pc off I Turn the leds on for something to look at. You can also change all the leds just like when the pc is on and even do the FN + END/5 and customize the leds. I just wanted to update the review so if anyone wanted to know if you could do that, well now you know. Also, the keyboard is holding up really good and I am still super happy with my purchase.Read more

    I purchased a K552-RGB keyboard on 6/30/2018. I received it on 07/02/2018. Within 14 days, I noticed that the “z” key was not functioning. I notified ChallengerUSA by email on 07/15/2018. On 07/16/2018, they requested my order #, which I provided on 07/16/2018. On 07/17/2018, I received a notice that a prepaid label would be provided the next day. Three days later and I have heard nothing since.Read more

    The media could not be loaded. All i can say is this is the best keyboard you can get for the price , it has RGB and the blue switches feel just like the mx cherry blues. dont bother spending your money on other keyboards when you can get this for 40 bucks. It has alot of animations you can choose from. Check out the video i attached.Read more

    Okay, so originally I was going to give this two stars because the ability to individual customize the lighting for each key seemed to be missing. HOWEVER, the functionality is there! It’s just not outlined in the manual, and I had to figure it out through trial and error. To set up individual backlighting mode: 1. Press FN and the ` key. 2. Once the red lights on the right (the Caps and Scroll Lock indicators) are blinking, press FN and the right arrow key. 3. You’ll see the ` key glowing a certain color; press any key on the keyboard to set that key to the current color. 4. Press FN and the right arrow key to move to the next color. Press any keys you want for that color. 5. Repeat step 4 until you’ve got all the keys customized as you like. (You can also set individual keys to not be lit at all during this process.) 6. When you’re all done, press FN + ` to exit customization mode and use your keyboard as usual. Boom, customized. The only possible thing I could think of that would make this keyboard any better is some kind of indicator to let you know that the Windows key is locked or not. Otherwise, this is a pretty cool intro mechanical keyboard.Read more

    The media could not be loaded. I have tried keyboards including Razer and Logitech and some varieties of Chery Brown/Red, but in the end still love the loud cherry Blue clone from Dragon. If you’re looking to get into a mechanical keyboard, this is a great starting point. Back light instructions: If you just want to see how the backlight looks, watch the video I’ve posted. – FN + arrow keys = change of color – FN + INS = all board slowly changes colours uniformally – FN + PGUP = lights make waves in W M motion – Press FN + PGUP and FN + End or FN + Del for more effects * see video – sorry it’s tilted! Now on to WHY I like this keyboard: – it’s cheap! Like 7 fancy drinks from Starbucks cheap. – The switches are great! It’s a mechanical keyboard in a true sense: great tactile feedback and great press. very loud (great of you want to annoy a coworker at work, just saying), but not so loud that you’d think it’s louder than a standard mechanical keyboard. – The switches feel sturdy. They don’t feel cheap at all. – The back lighting is just the right intensity. Each press is satisfying – I love leaving it keyboard backlight on when my monitor is off, it’s that good! – I do like how you can adjust the brightness of the light or you can just turn them off. Things to consider: – It may annoy your significant other – The LEDs will not stay at your setting once you turn your computer on. You will need to adjust it every time. (Or maybe there is a setting I don’t know of…) Overall I am happy with my purchase and would recommend this keyboard to anyone looking to save a few dollars. ••• Hope this helps all the amazon gals and guys out there! ¯_(ツ)_/¯ •••Read more

    Pros: Amazing sturdy build Full RGB modes Decent brightness Ergonomic keys Very tactile and clicky Compact and portable No software/plugin required Has service-centre in India for easy repair/warranty claim Good customer service Cons: Some might not like the aggressive gaming font on the keycaps Too loud due to blue switches which might not be perfect if you are in a social environment (not a con of the keyboard but regarding blue switches in general) Minor keycap wobble Verdict: If you’re on a budget but can consider taking into account the standard, quality and features of the product, get this one! Personal opinion: Around this price range, it’s hard to get brands like Corsair, Razer, Logitech, etc. In such a case, Redragon is far better as a brand than Cosmic Byte, Amkette, ANT Esports etc. P.S. – I got this for Rs. 3890Read more

    So i’ve wanted a mechanical keyboard for ages but could never justify spending loads of money. I purchased this keybaord for £45 (RGB version). I can honestly say its the best decision i have made. These are a few points i have to say: -Cherry MX Blue switches have a great feel and are great for gaming IMO and even better for typing (very noisy though so be aware) -RGB has 18ish different modes and loads of colours for a cool looking keyboard -Very string board with no flex and durable keys -Function keys to adjust volume, play, pause etc. -This is an American layout so no £ sign and some swapped letters but Windows automatically changes this and works well in UK -Compact keyboard with no keypad but still a good size -It comes with a keycap remover so you can easily clean the board Overall I’d recommend this keyboard if you dont want to spend loads of money but still want a quality product.Read more

    We stan a clacky boi and boi does he clack. Tl;dr? This little roaring dragon is a fun little attention hog and worth the very little bit of effort it takes to tame. O-rings and a towel did the trick. The little Kumara is like an excitable younger sibling compared to the other mechanical keyboard I have. It’s bright and loud and wants attention, and I love it. COLOR / LIGHTS: It’s got so many RGB presets I don’t think it even remembers what they all are: sweep left/right, pulse, shimmer, fade, pulse, solid color, touch light-up — the list goes on. (You can cycle through them all mechanically with FN+INS through PgDn and change the color of the solid-color ones or the pulse direction with the arrow keys.) The white case/keys make the RGB lights pop. And it’s got quite a lot to say while you’re typing. SWITCHES: These blue switch keys have a bright, bouncy feeling to them that I can’t get enough of, along with their satisfying click. SOUND: It’s not just the blue switches that make it audibly loud. Three sounds make this little wyrm the loudest in his clutch: (1) you’ve got your clicks, which come from the switches themselves; (2) you’ve got your clacks, which come from the plastic keycaps striking the body when they bottom out; and (3) you’ve got a ping resonating through the metal body when the keys pop back into place. Take all those and put them on a metal/plastic combo body that amplifies like a drum and you’ve got a keyboard that sounds like a room full of tiny, angry, old-timey reporters live inside. But don’t be scared off by the Kumara’s roar. It can be tamed! Don’t get me wrong, this will never be a quiet keyboard, but you shouldn’t be looking at blue switches if you want quiet, anyway (switches are differentiated by color; blues are designed to go “click!”). MODIFICATION: Here’s how I brought this wyrm to heel: 1. O-rings, specifically theCherry MX Rubber O-Ring Switch Dampeners Blue . The blues are more noise dampening than Cherry’s red. You can get an off-brand or try to do something yourself and you might be fine, but I picked the Cherries so I’d know what I was getting. The Kumara came with a keycap remover, so all I had to provide was the rings and a pair of modeling tweezers to slip them on with. The rings keep the keys from bottoming out and clacking against the keyboard body, which was the source of the truly clamorous clatter. 2. I pulled apart some cotton balls and stuffed them inside the larger keycaps to reduce open spaces that resonate. The difference is barely noticeable, which is why I only worried about the larger keys. But it’s a little something if you want to go that extra bit. One of the other reviewers took the case apart and inserted foam columns, which would probably do even more. 3. I have a lovely scarf I never wear that I put under the keyboard. It’s pretty and it keeps the desk from further amplifying the noise. You can also use a small towel, or one of those extra-large gaming mouse pads (likethis one if you want something more subtle than a patterned scarf. With these really simple modifications the Kumara only roars as loud as I want it to, while I get to enjoy all its bright exuberance. OTHER NOTES: 1) My use case is typing long documents and programming. I cannot speak to its performance as a gaming keyboard, though I’ve heard a different switch type besides blue might be better. Google up mechanical switch types to find what’s right for you if you’re a serious gamer. 2) I use this with a Mac (Macbook Pro) with no problems. I haven’t extensively tested the function keys’ media control functions, so I can only say the volume up/down both work. I had to tell the computer what kind of keyboard it was when I first plugged it in but since then it hasn’t asked, even after disconnecting/reconnecting it. And it took about 30 seconds to go through the auto-detection process, so no big. 3) The keycaps are easy to remove and seem like any basic hot-swappable cap, and the switches aren’t soldered in, so I presume it’s possible to swap them as well. (Note that I’m not sure how the fact they are proprietary plays into the ability to repurpose them or whether that affects what the board accepts.) In conclusion? It’s not a perfect keyboard, but it’s perfect for me for the price. Worth a go if you’re curious about mechanical keyboards, don’t care about noise, don’t mind a few extremely simple modifications, or just want something to tinker with.Read more

    The build quality is good. The keys are thick and look as if they’re double shot. A keycap remover came in the box which I didn’t expect, but will come in handy when i swap the caps. I would have liked a more metal construction around the body since it is plastic on the outside, however it doesn’t feel flimsy or weak. Since there’s not a lot of metal, the keyboard is light. The rubber feet do not grip as nice as I’d like so it does move forward without a wrist support since you tend to lean your hands on it which gets me on to my next point. It’s tall! I haven’t experienced any RSI yet since I have a wrist support for other tall keyboards, so keep that in mind if you’re going to be using this for long periods of time. The RGB is amazing. It is NOT programmable, but I don’t feel like that’s necessary. The colours here are beautiful with a very wide range. There’s around 9-12 preprogramed lighting styles with adjustable brightnesses, colours, and speeds. IMHO, this is more than enough. My biggest critique here is the white. It’s slightly pink. For the price, I’m happy. The switches are Outemu switches. After using only Cherry MX and keyboards that over 4 times as much as this one, I would have said there’s nothing like Cherry MX. Now, I did purchase this keyboard because of the Cherry MX in the title (EXTREMELY MISLEADING), but… They’re actually good switches. They do have a considerable amount of rattle and wiggle room since they’re not built to the same tolerances as the Cherry MX switches. They’re also not rated for 100 million key presses. With that all said though, they are your run of the mill blues. They feel like they have a greater actuation force than my Cherry blues but I kind of like that a lot. So keep that in mind if you’re used to softer reds or don’t like to be so confident with your fingers. Longevity wise, I’ll have to update this review when I’ve broken in the switches to see how they hold up. I see a lot of reviews complaining about noise… What did you expect? They’re blue switches. If you want to bump but not the click noise, go for browns. I like the style of this keyboard, but it’s definitely not for everyone. The big Redragon logo is gross. The font of the keycaps is very “gamery”. I would have liked the logo to be a swappable blat or at least be somewhat removable. I’ll be swapping these keycaps with something a little more subtle and I’ll probably get some white vinyl to cover the logo. Overall, it’s a very good keyboard. I cannot be overly critical when this thing is half the price of what you’d normally expect. If you’re on a budget or want to dip your toes in blue switches, I’d say go for it. You wont be disappointed. Comparing this to the Poker3 and whitefox, it holds it’s own.Read more
