    A great introductory mechanical keyboard with RGB effects that perform better than advertised.

    I have never owned a mechanical keyboard, and I've been wanting one for some time now. My trusty Logitech G213 has never given me any problems, but I've been wanting to try out something meant for gaming. This laptop came across my feed, so I figured I'd give it a try.

    PROS
    While you get the satisfying click-clack of the mechanical keys, the noise isn't obnoxiously loud. I'm usually either reviewing, working, or gaming late at night, and I don't want to wake my wife up with loud typing.

    The switched are lightning fast, and the input seems as close to instantaneous as possible. I've found this to make a noticeable difference, especially when playing certain games like Skyrim.

    The weight is nice, and gives a feeling of higher quality to the keyboard.

    The RGB effects are really cool. I was slightly let down by my G213, but this is great. Many options to choose from, and you don't need to download any software to make changes.

    CONS
    This is minor, because I know what I ordered, but it would be nice if this was offered in a full size. I've never really been much of a fan of compact boards.

    Overall, this is a great introductory compact mechanical keyboard. Anyone who needs something smaller and wants higher quality than a cheaper model without looking to spend too much, this should be the first option. I would purchase this again with no hesitation.

    Nice budget wired keyboard

    I previously acquired the wireless limited edition version of the RK84 and was pleasantly surprised with the keyboard for the price. It looked and felt very high quality, so I decided to get this wired version in white as I have some keycaps that I thought would look nice with it. I initially thought this might have been a wireless keyboard as some of the photos and descriptions mention wireless, but it later states that this is actually a wired keyboard, not wireless. The description was a bit confusing and could use some work.

    I received the keyboard and opened it up, and was again impressed. It includes the manual, a few extra linear switches, a USB-C cable and a fairly unique combo keycap/switch puller. The RGB is very vibrant, rivaling that of my Ducky One 2 SF that I previously mained. Most of the keys feel nice and have a smooth feel to them without any rattling or pinging. The space bar is quite loud when bottoming out, however. It makes a very loud plastic on plastic clunking sound. One of my favorite features of this board is the USB passthrough. It's powered by an included USB-C cable, but has two USB-A passthroughs that work perfectly without taking up extra USB ports on your motherboard/hub/etc. It is all powered by the one USB-C that also powers the keyboard.

    As of my time of writing this review, there is a $10 off coupon making it $60, which is a steal for this quality of board. I highly recommend it, and I also recommend checking out the wireless variants as they are even better than this one and not much more $$

    Very good small keyboard

    I have quite a few Royal Kludge boards now, and they are all very impressive. I have been trying different layouts to see what I prefer, and this was the next one in my testing.

    I cannot tell you what kind of layout you will like, that is personal preference, but I can say this board has all the keys that I want and use on a daily basis. My main complaint is that they are squished too close together. I prefer the gap between the F-row and the main board.

    I got my board with the RK Brown switches as that is what I prefer to type on. They are very good. Switch quality has improved immensely in the past few years, and these are no exception. I cannot tell the difference from key-to-key. The only key I have an issue with is the spacebar, it is very hollow sounding. I'm not sure why this board has this issue, as the other boards I have have the same spacebar mounting layout and switches but are not nearly as hollow sounding.

    The lighting effects are good. I have mine set to a solid cyan, but there are a ton of options to go through.

    The keys are hot-swappable, I have not done so on this board yet, but I'm assuming it is the same as the other boards I own from RK. A keycap puller and switch puller are included in the box.

    This board is not going to be my main go-to for the reasons I mentioned with the layout. The board, however, is excellent. It's going to live on my workbench for that PC where the space is at a premium and the layout will not bother me as much.

    I highly suggest RK boards, just find the layout and key-switch type that work for you.

    Very nice keyboard for the money

    I'm super impressed with this keyboard. Compared to my Drop CTRL High Profile keyboard, this Royal Kludge RK84 comes surprisingly close for a fraction of the cost.

    Though I would prefer to have "name brand" Cherry or Kailh switches, the Royal Kludge blue switches this keyboard came with feel quite good, will hopefully hold up well after extended use, and help to keep the price down. Including 4 extra switches in the box was a nice touch and something I had not run across previously. Making the switches hot swappable allows the customer to install their choice of switches, if desired.

    The 75% layout used here is a bit different than the tenkeyless layout of my Drop CTRL, so I was a bit concerned I wouldn't like it, but it's easy to get used to and keeps the keyboard compact without compromising the rest of the layout.

    The LED backlighting functionality works well, though the range of the colors isn't as broad as the Drop keyboard - I can't get the same sort of deep green that I can on the Drop CTRL, for example. But this is a minor nit and I'm certainly not going to take stars away on the overall rating over that.

    The built in USB hub is extremely handy and works well.

    As another reviewer mentioned, the link to the customization software is missing on the product page and once the software is downloaded from the RK site, an update is needed before this keyboard is recognized. I suspect both of these issues will get resolved at some point and these are minor issues. The actual software is just OK, but that's pretty common these days.

    Though this keyboard doesn't have the amazing aluminum case that the Drop CTRL has, the build quality is very good. The keyboard feels really solid and using plastic helps keep the weight down, which is nice if the keyboard is going to be carried to and from the office.

    Great wired/bluetooth keyboard with clean aesthetics. Saves space if you don’t need a 10 key.

    I’ve been very happy with RK’s keyboards. They’re excellent quality, pretty-feature packed, and most have a built-in hub (this one does, but it unfortunately lacks USB-C), which is incredibly useful for accessories and surprisingly isn’t offered by most other makers or builds. This board also has the detachable frame if you prefer a very minimal design with almost no bezel. Personally, I don’t like the look, but I love that it’s offered, as it’s very unique and cool to see.

    This board offers everything to you in a key besides the 10-key itself, so it’s an excellent option for just about anyone who isn’t working with numbers much. The omission offers quite a bit of space savings without any other sacrifices. I really appreciate the low-key branding used on the keyboard (their logo is sublimated on the user-facing side profile) and the board itself feels very heavy and sturdy while being low-profile. The typeface and alternate key functions are very clean looking and I appreciate the alternate function color, which matches the typeface color when unlit. The keys are hot-swappable and as good as they come quality-wise.

    The lighting, like their other boards, is excellent. It’s bright and clean and has plenty of modes. I love having the option of macroing and app control, which this board offers, but I personally never install software for my keyboards (I prefer to when functions and controls are packed into the board as much as possible). I was bummed to see the omission of 2.4GHz, but it’s a bit of an unnecessary for many users I suppose and likely most people will prefer the cost-savings of the omission vs the inclusion of the feature (honestly though, I view it more of a cost-cutting than savings for the users).

    My only other complaint here is the magnetic kickstand feet used to elevate the back. I love having the option to elevate the back, but I greatly prefer the feature to be built-in vs requiring the use of feet that you’ll have to store somewhere safe when not utilizing them. It looks and feels cool having them stick on magnetically, but I just don’t like it.

    I love almost everything about this board: it’s excellent for the price, very high quality, looks clean and professional so perfect for personal and business use, and offers the hub, which is an incredibly useful feature you won’t find with most others. The maker definitely puts aesthetics at the forefront, which I love to see: the choice of typeface, minimal branding, and excellent lightning make for a very attractive board that matches many custom-builds. Sadly there’s definitely some cost-cutting going on with this board, but most of it won’t impact users. If you’re looking for a beautiful, space-saving mechanical keyboard, but don’t want to cut out anything but the 10-key, this is an excellent option. The price is good and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a solid-white mechanical board that looks as nice. I originally rated the board at 4-star due to the omission of 2.4ghz and continued use of standalone kickstands, but I felt that I was being a little too harsh. The inclusion of the USB hub and removable frame are great features you won’t find other places.

    I love almost everything about this board: it’s excellent for the price, very high quality, looks clean and professional so perfect for personal and business use, and offers the hub, which is an incredibly useful feature you won’t find with most others. The maker definitely puts aesthetics at the forefront, which I love to see: the choice of typeface, minimal branding, and excellent lightning make for a very attractive board that matches many custom-builds. Sadly there’s definitely some cost-cutting going on with this board, but most of it won’t impact users. If you’re looking for a beautiful, space-saving mechanical keyboard, but don’t want to cut out anything but the 10-key, this is an excellent option. The price is good and you’ll be hard-pressed to find a solid-white mechanical board that looks as nice. I originally rated the board at 4-star due to the omission of 2.4ghz and continued use of standalone kickstands, but I felt that I was being a little too harsh. The inclusion of the USB hub and removable frame are great features you won’t find other places.
