GamaKay K61 Review 2

GamaKay K61 Review 2
So that we're having a look at an acrylic key-board today, the GamaKay K61. The K61 is extremely similar to the GamaKay K66 I examined a while back, featuring the sandwich situation style with polished acrylic panels. This board has Gateron switches and also the PCB includes the Gateron warm swap sockets, so you have compability with other type of buttons. Then I will certainly additionally be popping on the White Dessert keycaps. These are not the common HyperX caps that I utilize, however I got this established from GamaKay, so we'll see if these are a sensible option to my HyperX collection.

The case includes 3 acrylic items held together by Philip's head screws. Along with the LEDs beneath the secrets, there are LEDs placed around the framework, and the light shines with the polished acrylic smoothly. The end outcome is extremely vibrant and also showy, as well as the framework has a mesmerising appearance. This would match a colourful or neon-themed desk arrangement. There are an overall of 18 RGB settings, and also you can cycle via these with Fn + right Ctrl. You can establish the instance LEDs with Fn + left Ctrl. To change from RGB to a solitary colour, you press Fn + Area Bar, then choose a colour from among the keys. Just press Area Bar a second time to revert back to RGB colours.

Explosion of colour
The K61 is available with the common Gateron Red, Brown and Blue switches, and there are likewise extra straight alternatives including Blacks and also Yellows. I selected the responsive Gateron Browns for this board, and also these are in fact really wonderful buttons. I specifically delighted in the lighter actuation force of 45g, as well as I was hitting my usual rates while making less typos. I prefer these over the Optical Browns, as the tactile bump feels more noticable. The stabilisers are rather average and also there was some rattle on the bigger keys, yet the area bar was actually respectable. The stabs are factory lubed, yet they hardly put on any and also it doesn't make much of a difference. These stabs are plate installed, so you can quickly eliminate them to do some modding. The K61 has an unique noise as a result of the distinct case style, and it's more of a high pitched and slim seeming key-board.

HyperX White Puddings
The hot swap feature is extremely beneficial, and also doing button substitute or lubing is very easy. Several of the switches were fairly hard to take out, so just watch out for damaging the acrylic plate. Additionally note that there is no keycap or switch puller in the packaging, which was a little disappointing. The K61's Fn layer is rather barebones. The only Nav Collection secrets you have is Delete, Insert and also Prt Scr. There are some beneficial volume controls, and the arrow keys are conveniently put on WASD. You can do RGB biking as well as brightness control, however to alter the rate and also direction you will certainly require to download the software program.

Gateron hot swap sockets
So if the RGB isn't crazy enough for you, you can include some white pudding keycaps. This set is available on GAMAKAY for just $30, as well as it's pretty much the same to the HyperX set. These white desserts are constructed from PBT with an OEM profile, and also there are 108 keys so it sustains the full-size, TKL and 60% type factors. Great top quality on these keycaps at an economical price. It resembled the keyboard was mosting likely to take off right into area when I popped these on! If you want to transform some heads, I would certainly advise combining the K61 with the White Pudding set.

You can find a link to the software application on the GamaKay listing page. The software application has actually all the expected RGB controls, and there is an RGB colour combination that enables you to pick single colours. By deselecting the Light checkbox you access to single crucial remapping. There are some fundamental choices right here, consisting of macros, single trick and also multimedia features. It is not feasible to remap or move the Fn key, so getting devoted arrowheads isn't really possible, as we can not reorganize the keys on the bottom ideal edge. You'll have to use the Fn layer arrow capability.

Three-piece acrylic instance
The K61 has four round feet on the bottom. The top feet are bigger which's where the tilt originates from. The keyboard still felt quite flat, and also it would certainly've behaved to have an extra collection of feet. The keycaps are double-shot abdominal with even more of a smooth finish as opposed to a textured surface. The wall surfaces have a thickness of 0.8 mm, yet they really did not feel fimsy at all. The acrylic case is durable sufficient. A little of squeakiness and bend, however it wasn't noticeable throughout real usage. The middle acrylic structure piece appears to be larger than the other two pieces, so the alignment isn't excellent, yet simply a nitpick. The USB-C port remains on the back right of the instance, and the cord is constructed from rubber. Fairly unusual to see this best positioning, and I favor the more standard back left positioning.

So with the K61 you're going to get a compelling exterior, and also disallowing some minor stabiliser rattle the inputting experience is very good. Include the fact that this board has the sought-after hot swap function, and you have an outright bargain at $59.99.
