OPTICAL SWITCH MECHANICAL KEYBOARD23398448-BLK / R GATERON
If there was only one word that could describe every Gateron switch stroke, that word would be - smoothness. Compared to other brands, you can rest assured that both your typing and gaming experiences will be much smoother than ever before.
The SK61 Optical Switch Mechanical Keyboard Kit is ideal for anyone looking to build a 60-key keyboard that won’t quit. The new Gateron optical switches in this kit are rated for an impressive 100 million keystrokes—double the industry standard. They use infrared beams to detect each keystroke, a precise method that leads to an extremely fast response time of roughly 0.2 milliseconds—great for gaming and other tasks where speed is essential. This kit also features RGB lighting with 16.8 million LED colour combinations, rhythm and sound lighting control, and key programming and macro-creation for three definable layers. It’s equipped with hot-swappable switches for fast and easy hardware customisation, as well rubber anti-sliding feet for increased stability.
