Subject: General Tech
Manufacturer: AUKEY

Introduction and First Impressions

Aukey, a prominent seller of mobile accessories on Amazon, has an interesting product for PC enthusiasts: an RGB mechanical gaming keyboard for $59.99. The price is definitely right, but is it any good? We’ll take a look!

“The AUKEY KM-G3 mechanical keyboard takes the gaming experience to a new level. Tactile, responsive mechanical keys put you in control for an outstanding typing or gaming experience. The KM-G3 offers preloaded multi-color RGB backlit lighting effects and patterns. Ideal for FPS, CF, COD, LOL and Racing games - Just use the Function key to easily switch between gaming presets.”

The KM-G3 keyboard is a standard 104-key design, using blue switches (presumably a generic switch as no brand is listed), and there is RGB lighting which can be cycled between various colors and patterns, or switched off if desired. Aukey is also offering a 2-year warranty on the keyboard, which should help allay any fear about a purchase.

The KM-G3 is a nice-looking keyboard, with a brushed aluminum finish beneath the keys.

The keyboard is fairly compact for a 104-key design, with very little extra space around the keys in any direction.

The base offers a pair of rubber pads under the front edge to keep it from slipping around on the desktop, but the keyboard was more stable with the retractable legs flipped out along the back edge.

The back legs have a rubber pad along the bottom edge, which gives the keyboard the grip needed for a stable experience.

Finally, the USB cable. This is just over 3 feet long, and the plug seems robust enough.

Next we’ll check out the RGB effects, and I’ll provide my usage impressions.

Good quick review. I have the Redragon K550 Yama, a bit more costly than the Aukey at $89 but I think it has been awesome, but any idea how it compares to the cheaper Redragon K555 INDRAH? ($69 at Amazon).
