Massdrop Keyboard

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Okay so i was exploring Massdrop earlier today and i found the E-Element RGB keyboard, link to the drop below. My question is has anyone herd of this brand or this keyboard? I cant find anything on them at all. It looks veryveryvery nice. It almost looks like a k70 RGB clone other than the standard bottom row. Anyone know anything about the keyboard and switches and stuff????

The switches are either linear black or clicky blue. They are not the best quality switches either. The RGB lighting is also not fully programmable.

Well i know their not MX, but that doesnt bother me much. #NO #BRAND #LOYALTY lol. But what do you mean over priced? Any comparable board was like upwards of $120

Haha my bad scratch what I said. I was reading about it on a different page and completely overlooked the massdrop price when I was writing my reply. For 80 bucks it seems like a fairly solid keyboard if you don't care about switches or fully programmable back lighting.

In that price range? No I don't know any keyboards that have full RGB and mechanical switches. So id really consider that massdrop price

Thanks!!!  WOOO HOOO!!!!  I'll probably wait for closer to the end of the drop before ordering it, just in case any other option shows up before then, but if nothing does I'll be getting that black one!  ;)

I'll probably go Black with blue switches.  I had my mind set on Cherry browns but I don't want them so bad as to pass up THIS deal!

The switches are said to be decent, but they are fairly new in the market. However, if you reside in the US its actually quite decent seeing how a razor would go for around the same price and this looks to be better already. Tell us what you think about it when you get it.

Is there a section on here where i can do reviews like that on? Like a user review section? I havnt seen anything like the on here before. 

 

Also is there a way that i can suggest products to Linus to review? Id love to see what he thinks on this keyboard. Or even Luke because of his massive love for mechanical keyboards :D
