Design

HAVIT LED Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

This beautiful and very robust keyboard has a chunky metal body and solid blue bumpers on the sides to protect it from accidental damage. It comes with a gold plated USB connector while the super long cord is covered in a beautiful light grey braided fabric. The keyboard is very robust and got a nice weight to it. This is an OEM profile which is slightly higher than the Cherry MX keyboard. Underneath you’ll find four rubber feet to adjust the level of the keyboard for a better typing experience.

 

Keys and Backlighting

First the keys have a nice firm feeling (not that mooshy type of feeling) while producing a charming clickity-clack sound when the keys are pressed down. They are individually LED backlit and the colors are very strong and bright. This is a full size keyboard with number pad for easy access for calculations.
