Too Expensive & Limited RGB
Submitted on Friday, January 04, 2019
Strengths of the product
It worked when I plugged it in and it has media controls and programmable macro's with a recording button.
Weaknesses of the product
It's very expensive. I luckily purchased this on boxing day on sale yet I somehow still feel a bit ripped off. As soon as you download the SWARM software you have to firmware update the keyboard. The RGB is extremely limited even with software controls. It will not cycle through rainbow colors, the color transitions are choppy at best, and there are only 6 presets for key illumination - none of which are very cool looking. Heartbeat mode and Breathing mode and Impulse mode are basically the same effects. The software it comes with is NOT intuitive and there seems to be a lot of flaws. For example, you can turn off the LED illumination on the "FULLY LIT" preset, which subsequently disables all other presets from working but the other presets have no ability to turn LED on.
Don't get this keyboard if you spend more than $30 and don't expect it to be a cool RGB keyboard. If you want a cool RGB keyboard get the Coolermaster MasterKeys Lite L RGB combo for more.
