    The keyboard I recommend to friends

    First, I'm going to divide this review into two segments - one for normal people, one for keyboard nerds.

    For normal people:
    This is a really great keyboard!
    When someone is looking for a new keyboard, the regular edition of this is the one I recommend.
    The 75% doesn't refer to the size of the keys, just the number of them. It has all the keys of a normal keyboard, except the ones on the number pad, just arranged differently. The keys themselves are the same size as normal. You get a lot more room on your desk when you use a smaller keyboard, and end up moving your hand less far to use your mouse, which can be more comfortable.
    It has software you can download that will change the colors of the lighting; it's Windows-only, but once you set it up, the keyboard remembers the settings. You can also change it using the keyboard buttons, but it's less straightforward.
    One of the nicer features that Royal Kludge includes on many of their keyboards (though not the Pro version of this keyboard, sadly) is a built-in USB hub. This is a really great feature because it means you can plug your mouse and another accessory - a memory stick, volume controls, a keypad, personal massage device, whatever - into it and only have one cable running back to the computer. The USB hub doesn't work in wireless mode.
    How is this Limited Edition different from the regular RK84? Just a special colorway. The advertising pictures are accurate to the one I have (Macchatio). It's a nice creamy beige (or beigy cream) that has a very retro-90s look that's pretty popular right now.
    It's all very heavy and nicely put together so it doesn't move around when you type.
    It's great out of the box, but if you feel like you'd like to customize it, it comes with tools to remove the keycaps (the plastic keys) and the switches (the mechanical parts beneath them), which can be done easily without soldering or breaking anything.
    Any set of keycaps with 130+ keys will fit on this keyboard, or if they specifically mention 75% compatability. They come in different shapes, called profiles, and many different colors - and many different price ranges - and many people find it fun to experement.
    Any standard keyswitches will fit on this keyboard; but not optical or low profile. Changing these can make the keys harder or easier to press, which is pretty cool, and finding the right kind of keyswitch for you can reduce typing fatigue.

    For keeb nerds:
    This is a pretty good knobless 75%. Very nice stabs with no rattle right from the box and the stock yellows are lubed, so they're nice and smooth. I'm more of a clicky person, but these are very decent, buttery linears.
    Switches are north-facing.
    Keycaps are naturally doubleshot and feel pretty good, but not amazing.
    No QMK/VIA support. Proprietary software is decent but not amazing, with limited remapping and not any real programming.
    Solid quality, nice weight and good sound on many of their models have given Royal Kludge a pretty good reputation for budget boards (though some of the new ones have been misses), and the built in USB hub helps with cable clutter.
    It sounds pretty good (IHMO) but I'm told it responds really well to tape mod & foam or silicone pour (though it's a pretty hefty boi as it stands).
    If you don't care about wireless and already have some extra switches and keycaps hanging around (or need an excuse to get more, lol) the barebones-only CIY Tester TES84 would be another decent one to look at, since it has an aluminium case and I've heard some pretty good things about it.
    If you don't have a compact 75% in your collection this is a decent one to get. This would be a great gift for getting a SO/friend/whatever into the hobby, too.

    Outstanding gaming and productivity keyboard

    The RK84 mechanical keyboard is a well-built keyboard. I have a number of gaming and productivity keyboards, like the Apple magic keyboard, logitech’s mx keys & an old G710+. I got this keyboard for its aesthetics, its compact size, and its ability to game and do work both well. I would say that this keyboard does not disappoint.

    Look and build: This keyboard has a very compact footprint, but the keys are well spaced. It took me a very small amount of time to get used to coming from any of the full size keyboards above to become very productive and efficient. The keyboard feels super well built and premium. The look is just simply stunning. I am assuming that’s why you would go for the special edition here, for its incredible red/white/black keycap combo. I have received a number of compliments already after putting this keyboard on my desk. It is a very cool accent piece on the desk, no exaggeration.

    Keys: The keys with the custom yellow switches are actually really great. I was a bit skeptical at the beginning because I am not a huge fan of linear switches like the cherry red, but these are really nice. Yes they are linear, but they feel very nice and responsive. There is no strong acturation like the brown or blue switches, but I’d say the keys are very quiet and the feedback typing on it is actually really nice. The keys do feel quite fast, and great for gaming. It is definitely not shabby for productivity as well. Overall, I am very happy with the keys.

    RGB light: The RGB backlight looks really great and there are a lot of modes. The patterns are nothing super special compared to many other RGB keyboards these days, but the lights definitely look very nice with the actual keys themselves. One thing to mention is that the keycaps (including the text) are not transparent. I have another set of keys with transparent keycaps and that can change the look quite drastically if that’s what you prefer to swap with.

    Connectivity: This keyboard with its 5 different connectivity modes checks all the boxes I can think of. The wired mode, 2.4G adapter mode, and 3 bluetooth modes should really fulfill every single person’s use case. The connectivity is stable via bluetooth and I can easily switch between bluetooth devices back and forth between my work laptop and my personal pc, very handy.

    Battery life: In my brief test, this keyboard does hold up to the claimed 30 hour battery life with RGB light on. I charged the keyboard, and used this keyboard with RGB light on for 4 days. I’d say it probably totals to 6-7 hours typing and the battery % in the windows bluetooth panel is showing 70% battery remaining.

    Overall, this keyboard has successfully become my daily driver for productivity and gaming usage. In my daily productivity work and casual gaming usage, this keyboard has performed very well in all aspects. That plus the awesome look definitely makes this something I will recommend.
