Glorious GMMK tkl kit review (version 2020 ) : MechanicalKeyboards
This overview will not be sponsored ,the articles was bought alone.
By the best way sorry for my unhealthy English I am French.
The mannequin examined right this moment is the GMMK tkl package with abs doubleshot in black with gateron black switches.
Sorry for the low image high quality,the check was not made at residence.
Beginning worth round $109
Accessible in full dimension ,60% ,65%,tkl and full dimension in ansi and iso
125hz and 1000hz scan charge with n key roll over (managed by software program)
Weight: round 780g absolutely assembled.
Detachable usb-c braided cable
Lubed stabs .
Hotswap with mx fashion switches (3pin kind)
This package was my first keyboard diy expertise .however i had tons of prebuilt.
The construct was for a pal so he selected the gateron black switches .
The swap are much more scratchy and low cost feeling than the classic mx black he has within the steelseries 6gv2 keyboard he was every day driving.
I advised him to not low cost out on the swap…they’re nonetheless respectable and usable.
The opposite a part of the package make me assume a number of the tecware elite,largely the software program,the keycaps and the keyboard base itself.
However with improved high quality and properly lubed stabs, vs the 6gv2 rattly stabs it’s evening and day.
It’s in all probability made by the identical firm however with rather a lot further qc management and care added by superb on prime.
Fairly an fascinating package deal for certain,nice first timer diy package particularly as a result of the standard is fairly good and it’s hotswap, so no soldering right here.
The packaging is sweet,eco pleasant and properly packed ,
I like the very fact it’s given with a braided usb-c cable, i used to be anticipating a micro-b however i just like the improve.
It got here with some further abs keycaps,a plastic keycap puller and a mud cowl ,sadly my pack had no swap remover and a few wire keycap puller can be good.
The paper work with Odin and the console peasant is a pleasant contact.
Good eco pleasant package deal once more ,there’s tons of additional switches for a tkl package and a few tweezers,that’s good.
There’s a few further paperwork and a sticker once more.
The abs keycaps.
Nice packaging once more,with the total structure stored so as within the field. no situation however warning there’s 2 escape keys. no paperwork.
The keyboard elements:
The bottom is fairly good,it’s gentle, aluminum on prime,plastic on the backside.
RGB is completed with floor mounted leds ,they’re so small you barely see them however when on they’re very robust.
The stabs are simply GREAT. they’re properly lubed (you’ll be able to truly see the lube) that is simply so good.
However the design is just about the tecware phantom.
It’s a keyboard i personal and that i reviewed, it was my every day driver and that i realy see it on this base,identical metalic shiny trim,and identical lower nook design.
I do not thoughts being a oem keyboard however some in all probability will.
I actually just like the improve to usb-c this yr,nice transfer by superb right here.
the cable plug is uncovered within the center a bit on the left any customized cable will match.
the flip out toes are good too and do the job.
the hidden keycap puller is typical from tecware.
It might be good if they may add pcb mount switches (5pins) for higher stability.
The switches chosen by my pal was the gateron black switches, he tried to go low cost on the switches and it was not the very best concept.
The switches are much more scratchy feeling that what he was every day driving (classic mx blacks).
This can be a bit unhappy with a so good base with nice stab, perhaps he’ll strive some holly panda subsequent.
Outdoors this ,every little thing is sweet, there’s tons of spare switches on this package and there was virtually no bent pin throughout set up.(just one swap with bent pins).
The keycaps are fairly good,once more i had the identical in my tecware, you discover these abs double shot keycaps in a number of keyboards.
The molding is nice however it’s nonetheless these oem profile keycaps with the standard stencil font we usualy see.
So good however quite common right here.
superb have a number of selection we simply went to default ones right here, and you aren’t pressured to order these ones.
The package meeting:
a lot rgb
mud cowl yay
6gv2 vs gmmk
The meeting was just about youngster play,it was very straightforward,the swap was straightforward to place,it’s scorching swap, device much less,every little thing is already lubed.
No soldering,virtually no bent pins on the swap ,in like 30min it was executed, that is an superior package if you wish to begin diy customized keyboards.
The value is okay too.the meeting was a number of enjoyable.
The software program:
the serial quantity didn’t actually match right here…
The software program is just about the identical because the tecware once more.
Macro, rgb, profiles, polling charge, the standard stuff,with just a few extra rgb impact by superb.
it’s a not unhealthy software program and work properly, no situation right here but it surely was a bit arduous to search out because the serial quantity didn’t match however you simply must take the most recent one.
A kb detecting software program can be good nonetheless as a result of the instruction was unclear and we was a bit caught.
Right here the sound check of the kb, alone, vs the 6gv2 and my pal who check the brand new keyboard on osu.
As you’ll be able to see the 6gv2 win on the swap smoothness facet however the stabs of the gmmk are rather a lot higher.
thanks you for studying!
