    So I was hesitant to purchase this at first. I had read some review somewhere on another redragon product, claiming that it was not true mechanical switches, blah blah blah. I gotta say, this is probably one of the best keyboards I have owned so far. I don’t usually spend a lot on keyboards with the exception of a Razer DeathStalker Ultimate that I had bought one day to use for work (and it worked out perfectly, it literally did like 30% of my job for me lol, but it was $300 so .. IT BETTER 😀 ). Back to the keyboard… I was how they say. FLUUSSSHH WITTHHH CASHHH. And thought what the hell I’ll try one of their “Mechanical” keyboards, and if its a flop, then lesson learned… Once I had the box in my hand I was already impressed. The box it comes in is nice, and I can tell the product was heavy, which is usually a good sign. Once I pulled it out, I knew that it was meant to be (that’s what she said…) It is pretty thick (doesn’t bother me one bit) It is heavy, (also doesn’t bother me). And because its heavy, it doesn’t go sliding around the desk when I type at my nutty typing speeds. The build quality is excellent, honestly, I don’t know how they are making money because this thing is solid, and I bet I can weaponize it.. There is no bend or give to this thing, its literally like a rock, its a thing of beauty and brings a tear to my eye. The red glow is intense and clearly visible even under the high-intensity interrogation style lighting they use at my office. And the ominous red glow looks amazing, it fits my offensive IT role perfectly (I deal mostly in heartbreak, and “Like A Boss” situations) The flip tabs on the bottom are heavy duty, and are super solid, like crazy solid, you flip them back and they sound like someone cocking a gun. They literally SNAP! into place, I love it, I have been known to break these things off.. That is just not happening with this keyboard.. I think I might just snap them back and forth now if someone comes to bother me in the middle of an intense keyboard bonding session. The keys themselves are beautifully designed, I love the font, it’s not your typical boring look. This thing says I break all the rules, And its the type of font you want to send an email with, but know you can’t because you will get fired when someone realizes that you’ve gone beyond their realm of times of new roman, and into a whole new dimension of professionalism… They are crystal clear, no blemishes, and the glow comes through the keys perfectly, the glow underneath the keys makes it look that much cooler. The mechanical keys are solid and work exactly as you expect, whether the actuation force is exactly what it should be, I don’t know. But they do the damn job, and I like to use my keyboards, not measure them in a full-on anal manner. The click is fairly loud and obvious, and there is no volume knob on it, so that is something to consider if you buy a mechanical keyboard for the office. I feel like this really does give me confidence in my high-speed typing ability as I am no longer wondering if I hit the key I wanted or if my keyboard had a derp moment (cause I don’t make mistakes! YOU HEARD ME! ). I really do blast through my typing though, with ease and a sense of accomplishment ( cause I feel accomplished when I hammer out a memo and it literally feels like I hammered it out… That is mission accomplished right there!) I am sure there are going to be moments when someone asks me questions whilst I am typing, and I am just going to keep slamming away while staring at them as I give them the look of “I know what I am doing”, while confident clicking noises radiate from the dominion that is my office. My boss came in and just immediately went wow mode on it, he loves it and stated that it makes him want to get rid of his laptop and switch to a desktop just to have a badass keyboard like this one. I didn’t mention that he could just hook it up to his laptop (MUAHAHAHA) And thus my reign over awesome keyboards stays unchallenged (as planned). Overall this thing is solid, and it makes a statement. It says, now mechanical keyboards can now be owned by anyone and not just those who are less impulsive with their money. I love it and I am going to buy 2 more, one for home (or should I call it my lair o.0) and one for my coming Mad (IT) Scientist Lab. To the manufacture: good job on an excellent product! I honestly didn’t have confidence in your brand when I first made this purchase, I have never used your products but now I am a believer. And don’t change the price, I am still a cheap impulsive bastard and will have to panhandle if you do.

    My daughter uses this keyboard, we both love it, but it’s indeed loud. We’ve tested other keyboards including Razer, Logitech, Cosair, as well as some varieties of Chery Brown and Red, but in the end still love this Cherry-Blue clone. Tried some dampening O-rings, didn’t help much, so I decided to open it up and experiment (need to remove the keycaps to access the screws holding the top plate down). Here’s what I found. The noises come from: – the click of the switch itself. It is what we like over the other switches, but the keycap amplifies this click quite a lot. – the bottom-out noise when the keycap hits the switch’s box. The O-ring can dampen this sound a bit, but the boxy plastic base amplifies it multiple times. Coupling with an IKEA tabletop, it sounds like hitting a drum. – the sound of the switch hitting the switch’s box on the way up. You can hear this sound when you hold a key down and lift your finger up quickly (like when typing fast). Again, this sound is also amplified by the keycap. The good news is, if you take the circuit board out of its boxy plastic base, all the noises are reduced to around 25-35% (my rough estimation), the only noticeable sound is the faint click of the switch itself. If you like a really quiet keyboard, you can just make a custom base/footing (a block of foam for example). You just need to cover the exposed circuit board on the underside, the top metal plate is pretty solid and won’t bend. I’m pretty sure it’s even quieter than the typical Dell keyboards at my office. However, my daughter prefers the keyboard with its base, so I tried to stuff the inside with foams, hoping to muffle it, and it seemed to work. But upon tightening the screws back in, it’s noisy again. So, the noise is transmitted through the screw poles to the plastic base, then the base amplifies it. Stuffing might have helped a bit, but not noticeable. To decouple the keyboard from the screw poles, I cut pieces of foam to the same height as the screw poles and double-sided taped them to the base. The poles are of different heights, shorter near the space bar, and taller near the Function keys. When putting the keyboard back, the circuit board and top plate sit on the foams, I tightened the screws very lightly, basically the screws keep the top from jumping out rather than holding it down. This significantly reduces the noise. I also filled the base with thinner foam rods, to reduce the void space in case it does act like a speaker enclosure. The keycaps were still problematic, with the switch’s click, the bottoming-out, and coming-back noise. Instead of using O-rings, I stuffed cotton ball in the keycaps, just little enough to muffle the sound, and acts as a thin layer of O-ring. The more cotton, the muffler the sound, but also shorten the travel distance. I didn’t want it to interfere with the great feeling of the switch so I didn’t use much. I was lazy and didn’t stuff the function keys as they’re rarely used, also to serve as a comparison. You’ll have to experiment a bit to find the right amount to your liking. The cotton does block the backlight a bit, but not much (and don’t look straight into the backlights after removing the keycaps, they’re blinding). One last thing, whatever the small amount of noise left, transmitted to the tabletop and got amplified. So I rolled a thin foam bag into little feet and taped them to the keyboard, no noise from the tabletop at all. Overall, I’d definitely call it a success. She was ready to compromise for a quieter keyboard, but now more than happy to keep it. I used to be able to hear her “smashing” the keyboard in her room from the living room, now I can barely hear the “light” click if I really pay attention. She wanted the RGB version, so I’ll buy one to trade with her, and probably will experiment with a custom base instead. See a need, fill a need!

    I’m a software engineer and can type anywhere from 85 – 110 WPM and those who code know the challenge of hitting special characters frequently; I should never miss a ; end line now :). I use to use an apple wireless keyboard with the chiclet style keys extensively the past several years and didn’t realize that was slowing down my typing. I actually purchased this keyboard for gaming at home but then bought another for work since I noticed a huge improvement in my typing speed. The reason I didn’t purchase a mechanical keyboard is due to the windows vs command key. The only mechanical keyboard I’ve found that has the command key is a das keyboard that is > $100 which is way over budget; can get 3 of these awesome keyboards for the price of one das. I’ve gotten use to using the windows key as the command with my pinky rather than the left thumb on command. I use both windows and mac so the switch has been great and it took a couple days to get use to replacing the thumb for command and using pinky for it but it has also made my windows typing much better since I use my pinky for windows anyway. For those who can’t give up their mac specific keyboard should look into buying one of these since you will make it work due to how awesome the keys feel. It’s identical to the more expensive cherry ones. I won’t feel bad if this keyboard breaks a year later since it’s only $30 and the ones that have the common cherry switches cost > $50. The apple wireless keyboard is double the price of this… # Pros – Identical to cherry switch that other more expensive keyboards use such as Das. – Increased my typing speed by at least 15 WPM. – Tactile feedback you do not get with chiclet style keyboards. – Solid and quality made. It’s heavy so it won’t move around the desk. Has nice grippy rubber pads too. – Don’t have to switch between the apple wireless keyboard and the windows keyboard since I use the same one off the KVM now. – I don’t have to recharge and replace the batteries in the wireless apple keyboard since this is corded. Got so sick of replacing batteries just to have wireless when it’s going to sit on the desk anyway so it was pointless. The apple keyboard would lose connection with the bluetooth too so again, it was pointless. – Compact size is better than a full size keyboard. Removing the number pad provides a better ergonomic experience which prevent strains due to widening the arms with the mouse. Research this if you don’t believe me. Some ergonomic keyboards put the number pad on the left side of the keyboard. – Best bang for the buck. Amazing value so I purchased 2 of them. Perhaps all the big brands such as Das will lower their price since this one seems to own the Amazon market right now. It’s 2018, people who are sane know that a mechanical keyboard shouldn’t cost > $100. C’mon, the IBM Model M in the 1980’s original price was around $250 but that’s some dated technology! It’s like paying the same price for an OLED TV for a tube tv. Who they trying to fool and that is why Redragon is here. They know the other manufacturers are price gouging. # Cons – None so far. # Neutral – My coworkers find it distracting since it’s loud but they can put headphones on. A mechanical keyboard is… loud. – Noticed some sound interference with my Logitech speaker setup at home. It sounds kind of cool because the breathing effect will also output in the speaker. Breathing will make it sound like a badass intro to a sci-fi action scene (think star wars lightsaber) and the solid light will make an ongoing high pitch noise. This is probably an issue with the KVM I use to switch between mac and pc. I don’t have this issue with the pc but when I switch it over to the mac the interference occurs.

    Oh Redragon, I keep coming back to you. Redragon makes some great tech for the price. No, it’s not comparable to high end gear, but it works, and it works well. If you’re looking to get into a mechanical keyboard, this is a great starting point. This keyboard uses outemu blue switches. These are not Cherry MX Green equivalents as listed, but Cherry MX Blue equivalents. About the switches, they accept standard keycaps make for Cherry MX stems. These are blues, which are great for typists (that don’t share a room with anyone else). These are loud switches, as all blues are. Great tactile feedback and great press. Function – Works great as a MX Blue starter point. All keys work perfectly, and the back lighting is just the right intensity. Each press is satisfying. Fit – It’s a standard tenkeyless size and fit. As with all tenkeyless boards, it has no wrist wrest. If you spend multiple hours at your desk a day, investing in a wrist wrest is a wise decision. Finish – Aluminum construction, ABS construction, and ABS keycaps (Not PBT). It looks nice, keys feel nice on the fingertips. Gold plated USB is a nice touch. All in All, the finish on the board is well above the 40 dollar price range. RGB lighting would be preferable. Other Notes: My wife hate it. She games in the same room as me, and uses the Redragon Karura (chicklet style keyboard, also fantastic if you like laptop type keyboards). The noise drives her nuts, and I would definitely not recommend for an office environment.

    The keyboard is great for my little brother. I wanted to get him a keyboard for his birthday that offered both quality and Red Switches. The switches in this keyboard are great. He likes them a lot, and he likes that the layout of the keyboard makes it easier to reach all keys, as he was using a $10 Logitech membrane keyboard before. The RGB can be changed on the fly with the keyboard changing it’s color options. You use the FN key and the various other keys to change colors and lighting options. I’m very impressed that this keyboard comes with a hefty metal construction in it’s base. It makes the keyboard feel heavier and higher quality as a result. The keyboard punches well above it’s $34 price tag. Keyboards from Corsair and Logitech or even Razer that come in Tenkeyless designs and RGB cost about $99 – $129. Maybe $80 on a day where there’s a good sale going. The keys are Cherry-Clones from Outemu, which means they are very similar to Cherry MX Reds. They are rated for 50 Million keystrokes, so this keyboard should be able to stand up to many years of gaming. This keyboard is a big upgrade over cheap membrane keyboards. It’s not top quality in any one category, but it’s solid for the money. The best value keyboard you can get at just $34 it’s a steal.

    This is my 3rd time trying to buy this keyboard, the first two had blue switches instead of red. (snip, no longer relevant) Update 6-22-2020 – After buying the keyboard from the seller named ChallengerUSA I received the correct keyboard. My previous comment about this being the manufacturer’s fault was incorrect. I can clearly see this box is labeled correctly indicating it has red switches. It was ultimately Amazon Warehouse’s fault for sending the wrong keyboard TWICE. The correct model of this keyboard is: K552-KR, the two Amazon Warehouse sent me were model: K552-2. I’ve revised my score upto a full 5 stars. Now that I have the correct keyboard I have 3 suggestions for things I would like to see improved for a future model: Change the font used to the one found on a standard keyboard, I am not a fan of this cyber font. Second, add an indent to the Caps Lock key on the rights side so you don’t accidentally press it when pressing the ‘A’ key. Third, add a USB passthru port to the back of the keyboard for plugging a wireless mouse dongle into.

    The first obvious pro of this is that it’s about half the cost of even the cheapest mechanical keyboards. They get the price down in a couple of ways. First of all, the switches, while they work under the same mechanical principle as Cherry Red switches, are their own in-house version. I can’t think of a reason why that’s a bad thing unless you really think no one else can build keyboard switches like Cherry. These look and sound just like them. I can’t say fi they’ll last as long since I just got this keyboard today. The other major way is the LEDs. They are not RGB LEDs. Each row has its own color, and what you see in the photos are the only colors each key is capable of. That said, there are different patterns and movements that can be cycled through on the keyboard itself, as well as patterns that light up different keys for different games. They can also be set to constant on. The third way is no ten-key on the side. But let’s be real: when’s the last time you used that anyway? If you’re not an accountant, you won’t even miss it. So after telling you what’s wrong with it, here’s what’s great: This keyboard is a joy to type on. Keys are nicely responsive with a pleasant clicking sound. It’s full-size for those used to touch typing, and it will take up less space on your desk.

    There was a time when i was beloved by my coworkers and friends alike. They greeted me in the mornings and evenings and invited me to Christmas parties and Easter egg hunts. I came to know the names of their kids, their anniversaries, and their favorite foods. it was the best of times. Then the clicking began. Click, Clack, Click. You can imagine the surprise when i opened the Amazon package expecting a regular office keyboard and this otherworldly device was in its place. Even though it was an error in the purchasing process, I was up against a hard deadline to finish a project and so there was no time to return the keyboard – I decided to use it after asking myself “It can’t be that much different, can it?”….Oh….Oh yes it can. Click. Click. Click Clack Little did I know how wrong I was and it became evident the moment I plugged it in and gave it life. Not power, but life – Instantaneously the keyboard hummed to life, and similar to Gandalf the White casting light from his staff while charging down the hill to Helm’s Deep on the first light of the fifth day, the keyboard blinded me as it cast its red light from its perch on my standing desk. Quickly I regained my posture, but it was too late, my curiosity was piqued. I pulled out the owner’s manual and to find answers but it read more like a lost scroll from Morrowind. Deep in the manual I was able to find a single recognizable word – “红龙”. Ah yes, finally I had a name- the Red dragon. Mistakenly I mumbled its name and, looking back, this must have been some incantation and like the Book of Amun-Ra I was possessed. Clickety Clickity Clack It seemed as if I was in slow motion the first time I began to type. The keyboard, sharing the power of its’ Redragon, was like a mythical dragon awakening in the lair entrapping the poor fool that disturbed it from its thousand year hibernation. Powerless, I could not stop. I will not stop Clack. Click Click, Clack Since that day, my coworkers opinions of me soured. They blamed me for disturbing the peace in the mornings. Instead of songbirds to lift your mood in the morning all they heard was my overwhelming CLICKY CLICKY CLICK. But it was music to my hears. They began to avoid my work space even after i would greet them with “GoCLICKod MorniCLICKg CLACK guys CLICK CLICK”. I don’t know why. Your brain begins to filter it all out after the first ten thousand or so clicks. Though I admit, there are times when the clicking doesn’t stop. Like an addiction it is always there; waiting for your moment of weakness to once again enthrall you in its darkness. Clack. clack. clickety clack clack – Cool keyboard. – Def go with the one that includes the num pad though. Didn’t realize how much i used it until i didn’t have one. – The clicks are loud. For real. – My coworkers also now hate me. For real. Guess who didn’t get the invite to Easter this year? yup.

    the white version of this looks amazing with my current setup. I was needing an external keyboard that went with the vibe of my room and desk area that would work with my MacBook Pro. compatibility: I saw mixed reviews on whether this would work with a Mac. and it’s mostly a yes but also there are some no’s. all of the alpha numerical keys work perfect — shift, caps lock, etc included. the command button on the Mac obviously doesn’t line up with a pc keyboard, but the windows button works just fine (command +q) is possible. there are keys on the far side that don’t work well (at least I haven’t figured out how yet) — home key, fkeys). the page up and page down keys work great. tab, symbols, etc. are solid. that being said, it was great for what I was looking for and the parts that don’t vibe with the Mac aren’t needed for me anyway (I’m a student & not pc gamer). have gotten a ton of compliments on the style and design. the LED backlights are incredible and extremely impressive in-person. the typing sound is very old-school and sort of annoying and addicting at the same time. I did get the wired version simply bc apple tends to hate bluetooth that isn’t their own, and it worked just fine with a USB adapter.

    I realize this is a gaming keyboard, but I am a senior citizen who needs to use backlit keyboards. I took a chance and bought this after looking at huge clunky senior keyboards and cheap looking backlits. I love this keyboard. It is compact and fits nicely on my keyboard stand. The lights are crisp and bright, and the keys are decent sized and responsive.. I particularly love the clicking typing sounds, music to the ears of those of us who started using keyboards way back in the day. Plus it looks cool. I think tech companies overlook senior customers, as many of us have been computer users since the 1980’s and appreciate a good product. Redragon might want to consider pitching this keyboard to the senior sector as well.
