Description

GK61 is a standard-sized 60% keyboard featuring RGB backlighting, USB-C wired connection, and optical switches . The USB-C cable is detachable for convenience of portability. Optical switches are much more durable than conventional mechanical keyboard switches and are rated for 100 million keystrokes. They have a high actuation point of 1.5mm for fast response. Light Strike optical switches utilize a horizontal infrared beam which is transmitted across the width of the inner keyswitch. The infrared beam is normally blocked from reaching a sensor across from it by the stem. Once a switch is pressed, the switch stem no longer blocks the infrared beam and the beam is detected by the sensor, which activates the switch. Due to the optical mechanism, an optical switch has an extremely fast response time of 0.2ms, which means faster reactions in those times where timing is critical, such as when gaming. Gateron optical switches can be hotswapped at wish and replaced by other switches. Hot swap keyboard do not recquire you to solder / desolder switches. (Hot Swappable with Optical switches only) The keyboard's PCB is spill and dust resistant. Comes with:

abunda_amazon_reviews I've had 4 keyboards, starting with the Razer Blackwidow Chroma, then the Corsair Strafe RGB, then the Logitech G Pro, and now the GK61. After researching about custom keyboards, I figured this would be a good base to get started. This board is made using the GK61 PCB from ePathBuy, which means you can customize to your liking beyond just the keycaps. For example, I found another case for this PCB that I will be placing this board into. I have yet to try out the hot swappable switch feature, but you can find Gateron Optical switches in 70 packs for less than $20. The software for this keyboard is garbage. If you can read Chinese you might be able to figure it out, but I still don't know how to change the static lights from green to another color (I keep the lights off anyway).

The first thing that stood out to me when I used this keyboard was that the Gateron Optical Switches are SOOO SMOOTH.

So it need's some improvement's so it could be perfect, this will be based on the typing and gaming experience. The box includes the keyboard, USB to Type C cable, key popper, switch popper and a manual. The Type C cable is braided and looks nice with the gold ends, nice for the price.

In gaming is not that important as typing because writing you will need almost all keys but the features for games are great, press as much keys at the same time as you want, fast response time and then the switches that you pick, great for gaming. I don't have anything bad to say about the switches, I ordered the blue switches and work as expected. Even that it says hot swappable, they only work with optical switches, this could be a bummer for some but I would say to give it a trie to the gaterons. The RGB is just not good, if you expect to use anything out of the basic colors like red, blue, green, etc. They will just look horrible and some cases will not be that color at all. The software has a lot of customization like breathing, wave effects and could set each key as the color you like even creating your own. All the functions that you can set in it surprised me adding to the ones that you can see in the picture of the key caps, you can change them all and set each key for something different including with the function key excluding the ñ or any other funcions from the spanish keyboard. You have three profiles that you can change with the in board memory of the keyboard and one with the software open.

So the stabilizers for some reason are glued to the board as you can see in the pictures and it feels cheap and looks gross, this is my most big complaint having aesthetically and feeling downsides with overall the experience of typing and gaming.

Exactly what you get for the price.
I will start this review saying that overall I like this keyboard, this is my first mechanical keyboard and I will keep for a while, the thing is that I have tried in stores more of the high-end keyboard and this is not perfect. So it need's some improvement's so it could be perfect, this will be based on the typing and gaming experience. The box includes the keyboard, USB to Type C cable, key popper, switch popper and a manual. The Type C cable is braided and looks nice with the gold ends, nice for the price. The keyboard has a plastic case that even that when I ordered I thought it was going to be cheap, surprisingly I like how it looks and doesn't look cheap at all, having the option of the removable Type C connection is good, but talking about the exterior the little thing that it could have is a adjustable feet because it just makes it more adaptable for all people .The PBT keycaps let the RGB through and the font isn't terrible as some others keys so the are good and showing all the functions that the keyboard has. Now the typing experience is great but not more than that because of the stabilizers (that I will talk about them in a moment) they are glued to the plate and keys like shift and enter feels different and not that smooth, it could be mine in specific. In gaming is not that important as typing because writing you will need almost all keys but the features for games are great, press as much keys at the same time as you want, fast response time and then the switches that you pick, great for gaming. I don't have anything bad to say about the switches, I ordered the blue switches and work as expected. Even that it says hot swappable, they only work with optical switches, this could be a bummer for some but I would say to give it a trie to the gaterons. The RGB is just not good, if you expect to use anything out of the basic colors like red, blue, green, etc. They will just look horrible and some cases will not be that color at all. The software has a lot of customization like breathing, wave effects and could set each key as the color you like even creating your own. All the functions that you can set in it surprised me adding to the ones that you can see in the picture of the key caps, you can change them all and set each key for something different including with the function key excluding the ñ or any other funcions from the spanish keyboard. You have three profiles that you can change with the in board memory of the keyboard and one with the software open. But you will need to know some chinese or pass a lot of time trying the options like I did, look for the link putting in google GK61 software and you will find it. So the stabilizers for some reason are glued to the board as you can see in the pictures and it feels cheap and looks gross, this is my most big complaint having aesthetically and feeling downsides with overall the experience of typing and gaming. So this 50$ keyboard being the first one that I own with the pros and cons that it has, I could say that I recommend it if you only have a 50$ budget for this, of you have more than 80$ just look for another option, it isn't terrible just that it could be better with little details.

3.0 out of 5 stars

Great keyboard, Software is an absolute joke/disaster
The keyboard has a fantastic build quality for its price. It's got exactly the 61% shape with the addition of my Home/pageup+down/arrow keys etc. The software.. oh dear. You have to google how to find the software, They don't even tell you about the software besides one leaflet in the box saying "compatible with example.exe" It's all dominatnly Chinese, they didn't even both doing a a full English translation of everything. There JUST enough english to scrape by, but the learning is all on you. Try to change a color? good luck, you have to figure out how to make a profile, then try to choose a color. HOPE that when you press save (if you find that button) that the color actually saves. In order to get a color of Aqua blue, no effects, I had to 'trick' the software, but making multiple 'frames' of that one color, do the hokey pokey with it, save and hope it stayed put. Once I figured out how to apply it... No aqua blue, just black. and now shift doesn't work. So I gave up for today and stuck with its default colors (the whole reason I got this and not another was because it included RGB to match my desk.) Get it for the keyboard, don't get it for customizing. You are going to be at the mercy of some poor team of programmers who were given a day to create it.
