The Aukey KM-G3 is an excellent entry-level mechanical gaming keyboard.


Mechanical keyboards are the kind of products that the saying "you get what you pay for" was created to be described. The best is $ 200 or more. The quality becomes quite random if you dive below the $ 100 range. And at less than $ 75, you can assume that you get something from the bargain bin. Fortunately, there is a little-known company, Aukey, that has changed it with its $ 65 KM-G3.

The KM-G3 is a blue switch (Outemu, no Cherry MX), a 104-key RGB backlit gaming keyboard with customizable lighting effects. For non-technical users, this means that it is a powerful, semi-rigid keyboard, much better than the standard keyboard that comes with most desktops. And of course, it turns on. Because players like lights.
