Rakk Lam-Ang Pro Mechanical Keyboard Review – Universal Socket Keyboard!

Rakk Gears has been consistently improving their lineup of mechanical keyboards and I always been just a lurker, following their progress since their Kimat lineup, but to be honest, I haven’t really found myself wanting any of their previous keyboards, I feel like there’s really nothing special with them except for the recent one, the Rakk Ilis with its dual numpad/arrow keys function and interchangeable top cover. I felt like that was the start of innovation from Rakk Gears when it comes to mechanical keyboards. I had my eyes on…

Mech Collective 2019 – A Gathering for Mechanical Keyboard Enthusiasts

There is a saying that “One’s you go clack, you can never go back”, and that’s actually pretty accurate. I started this blog and my YouTube channel reviewing all types of tech gadget from a mere 120 pesos wireless earbud to a very expensive 10,000 pesos mechanical keyboard. When I was starting, my contents were all over the place, I have no focus on what particular niche to focus on. Basically, I review whatever I have and whatever is presented in front of me.

X-Bows Ergonomic Mechanical Keyboard Review – Silent Gateron Brown

X-Bows Ergonomic Keyboard Review

I’ve already reviewed a few mechanical keyboards now with different layouts and form factor but nothing really stands out among all of them, they are all basically using the same ANSI standard. While that is a perfectly good choice since it is one of the oldest standards, it also suffers from one of the most overlooked design flaws when it comes to comfort. X-Bows, with its founder Dr. Wang saw that and created a very unique ergonomic keyboard that’s not so far away from a typical keyboard. A lot of…

Geek GK64 Mechanical Keyboard Review + GK64 VS GK61

  I’ve recently reviewed the Geek GK61 60% Hot-swappable Mechanical Keyboard and I figured, why not do a review of its brother, the Geek GK64. Like the GK61, the GK64 is also Hot-swappable but in a different way, as it is using standard switch rather than the optical switch that’s on the GK61. The GK64 also has a different layout with 64 keys including dedicated arrow keys and a few other differences in between.    Today, we’re going to talk about everything you need to know about this keyboard and…

Royal Kludge RK71 Mechanical Keyboard Review – RK Blue Switch

  At this point, I’ve already reviewed quite a few 60% mechanical keyboards with the likes of the Anne Pro 2, Geek GK61 and the Motospeed CK62, and while it appeals to a lot of keyboard enthusiasts because of its extremely compact form factor, for some it just doesn’t fit well especially with power users that use a keyboard for productivity 99% of the time. There are also some keyboards that tried to mitigate the loss keys by having a different layout, like the Ajazz AK33 that has an 82…

Motospeed CK62 Mechanical Keyboard Review – Outemu Red

Since I reviewed the Anne Pro 2 60% Mechanical Keyboard which I think is one of the best 60% keyboard out there, I’ve set my eyes on looking for the best alternative especially the ones that are almost half its price. The Geek GK61 is a good candidate with its hot-swappable optical switches but unfortunately, it doesn’t have Bluetooth functionality. Today, we are taking a look at another 60% keyboard that seems to have a lot of potential, the Motospeed CK62. It uses Outemu switch and works in both wired…

Geek GK61 Optical Mechanical Keyboard Review – Optical Gateron Brown

I’ve recently reviewed the Anne Pro 2 60% Mechanical Keyboard and while it is one of the best 60% keyboard out there, it is also quite expensive especially when you consider that there are a vast variety of budget 60% keyboards out in the market. Today, we are taking a look at a budget 60% keyboard that is around the usual 45-50 US dollar range but has a lot more feature to offer, the Geek GK61 Hot-swappable keyboard with optical switches.

Anne Pro 2 60% Mechanical Keyboard Review – Gateron Brown!

I’ve already reviewed a few budget mechanical keyboards from a full-sized 104 keys down to a 75% 82 keys keyboard, but I’ve yet to experience a super compact 60% keyboard like what we have here today. 60% keyboards are not for everyone because you lose a lot of valuable keys that might slow you down in terms of productivity, you lose not only the numpad but also the frequently used arrow keys in return of the small form factor. But what we have here today, which is the Anne Pro 2…

Shipadoo JK200 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review – X Blue Switch

UPDATE and Important Correction:  Special thanks to one of our followers, I was advised that the switches on the Shipadoo JK200 are not “True” Mechanical Switches. It uses what it seems to be a mechanical switch but it doesn’t actually have contact pins, instead, it has a pole that touches the membrane part of the keyboard that activates the key. What a clever way of disguise. I actually didn’t think about this because I didn’t tear the keyboard apart and I wasn’t able to search for any info regarding this…

I’ve already reviewed a couple of budget RGB mechanical keyboards with the Motospeed CK104 and the Gigaware K28, and so far none of them gave me what I am looking for in an RGB keyboard, and that is the ability to match the RGB colors with my desk setup. Today, we are taking a look at the Ajazz AK33 RGB Mechanical Keyboard which boasts a 16.8m True RGB colors and a whopping 19 lighting modes.

Gigaware K28 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review – Content Blue Switch

With my continued pursuit of budget gaming peripherals, I stumbled upon the most affordable mechanical keyboard that I can find on Lazada. We have here today the Gigaware K28 Mechanical Keyboard, and we’re going to dissect everything you need to know about this. I never thought that I would actually find a legit mechanical keyboard for just around 1000 pesos, there are a lot of mecha-membrane or “mechanical-feel” keyboards out there but there’s nothing that can imitate the feel and tactile feedback of a true mechanical switch, however you market…
