Well, you didn't ask for it... But I am typing on the keyboard right now. So, first impressions are "Wow, this was only $33!?"
The construction is rock solid, I mean REALLY rock solid. You could club to death, a baby seal, and continue on to club the entire herd of baby and otherwise seals with this thing. I'm fairly certain it would remain unscathed to the point where you could take it on future clubbing/hunting excursions. The colors look clean but subtle. They come turned on to their maximum brightness which do not burn your eyes out. If you were to change them to all green they would look much brighter though so they are not a slouch when it comes to output, very event lighting and very smooth/soft, not harsh like I expected a cheapo. If you pickup the keyboard and sort of shake it around, none of the keys flop or make noise, they are on their SOLID. I'll see if this is the case after typing a bunch of in. The only "loose" thing on it is the plastic cover that says "Redragon" on it with the 2 lights to display if "CapsLk" and "ScrLk" are on., that light is red and not configurable even on the full RGB version.
The only concern I have about this is for people who are prone to dropping liquids on their keyboard. The entire field where the keys are located have a 1/4 to 1/3 inch lip all around as a border. I could see this meaning cleaning liquid out of it wouldn't be fun if you do that often. Then again, for the first time in my computing history, I spilt coffee all over my Corsair K90 a few days ago, it was only on the Num pad and of course it messed up keys on the entire board. I had to take the keyboard apart, clean and put in back together. Of course this gave me a good excuse to clean it like I was preparing it as a gift for a king, which it desperately needed. It just goes to show though, that even if you don't think you would spill things, you can.
The mechanical keys have a really nice feel actually and to be honest, just in typing this post I feel that I might like these a lot better than my wife's Cherry MX Blue switches in her Corsair Strafe RGB. They most certainly feel like they actuate with a bit more ease and don't seem to have as large of a bump to overcome to make the key register. The return even seems nicer than the Cherry MX Blue switches oddly enough. I'd have to take a look at the specs on the two, but this is just my initially feeling. I didn't think I would actually like switches with the tactile bump or audible click, but this might grow on me for work. The keycaps have an anti-slip matte finish that I could see lasting a decent amount of time. There isn't much to make me believe at this point that it wouldn't last. The plastics used in this board feel thick and very rigid. Almost like what you would expect in an industrial grade tool. The fit/finish is minimalistic and very refined to match the rest of the aesthetics.
If anyone is interested in this keyboard and is afraid to spend the $26 on the non lit version, or $30 on the red light, or $33 on the rainbow, and wants more information..... you know who to ask. Oh and if you are just ROLLING in dough and money is of no consequence, then you could always spend $42.99 on the RGB version. You high roller you.
