Bloody Gaming is no newcomer to the world of PC gaming peripherals. As a subsidiary of A4Tech, they’re one of the few peripheral manufacturers to own their own assembly lines. Controlling their own manufacturing allows them to take risks and attempt new approaches the competition may not. Coming from a rich heritage of innovation at A4Tech, it comes as no surprise that Bloody has consistently sought to push the boundaries of the technology we use to game.

At the same time, the brand has taken a uniquely aggressive approach from name to design. Today, we’re looking at the company’s next generation of keyboard with the B975. With this release, we find a more restrained design coupled with the freshly redesigned Light Strike 3 optical switches and full RGB backlighting.

A4TECH’s Bloody mice all have a Light Strike Infrared Switch which not only provides a 0.2ms activation time but is also sealed so that no dust can degrade its performance.  The sensor is more traditional, it contains the popular PixArt PMW3325 with sensitivity ranging from 100-5000 CPI.  The mouse sports five RGB patterns for those who like the glow, you can switch between them by lifting the mouse and clicking the topmost of the three buttons in the centre of the mouse.  These buttons are defaulted to volume control and screen capture, a nice addition to a gaming mouse.  You can learn more about the mouse with a long name at Benchmark Reviews.

We have seen a handful of Bloody keyboards on the market, with their unique take on switches.  They use an LK Optic Switch as opposed to a mechanical switch, it detects keypresses when an  photosensors detect an interruption in the beam emanating from the infrared LEDs within the keyboard.  The other difference in the design comes from the RGB feature, instead of being integral to the key they are actually installed in the body of the keyboard.  Benchmark Reviews have become somewhat expert at Bloody keyboards, check out what they thought of this model in their full review.

Mate, those optical switches are Bloody loud on that B840 keyboard of yours!

The Bloody B840 is a bit of a chimera, having optical switches which incorporate a metal knob in each key to produce a click when a button is fully depressed like a mechanical keyboards keys.  Their LK Sound Creator Tech makes the keys similar to Cherry Blue in terms of travel distance and actuation force, but the actual keystroke is registered with the infrared beam that comprises the optical switch.  TechPowerUp is working on proper testing for keyboard response times, the tests they tried showed that the optical technology on the Bloody keyboard is technically faster to register a keypress, but not so much that they noticed it during use.  You can see their full review here.
