Overview of test results

This keyboard (and the included mouse) is a great product at an excellent price. Mechanical keys are not cheap, and we love the confidence with which one can use this keyboard, which prevents slippage and incorrect entries. The anti-ghosting capability is good, yet still somewhat average. Nevertheless, we see this keyboard best suited for use as a multifunction office device or for a home computer used for both work and gaming. The Cherry MX Blue keys are ideal for this purpose.

Managers: This keyboard is the ideal tool for any secretary in a prominent position. At any rate, it renders excuses impossible, because one simply must type quickly. For larger offices, this device is somewhat less ideal due to its noise level.
