So G.Skill is not just about RAM, oh no. The company already surprised us some time ago by announcing a case. This time, the company is “drifting” into peripherals. Indeed, it announces the arrival of a keyboard, the KM250 RGB, a model in 65% format!
KM250 RGB 65%: a small keyboard for G.Skill!
With this small KM250 RGB 65%, the brand offers us a compact keyboard. The numeric keypad and the function keys are omitted. It also has a few navigation keys and a volume control wheel.
All of this translates into dimensions of 32.7 (W) x 114 (D) x 39.2 (H) mm, not much smaller NZXT Function MiniTKL.
However, it has red Kailh switches that offer a linear feel to the strike, but a very present spring noise. Fortunately, the switches are hot-swappable, so you can change them if you wish. Moreover, the keyboard offers a good compatibility with the possibility of mounting 3 and 5 pin switches. Our preference is for the Gateron offering.
Otherwise, the keycaps are made of PBT and are two-tone. The upper part is black with a translucent lower part for a better diffusion of the RGB lighting.
Finally, we would like to mention the presence of the N-Key Rollover as well as the integral anti-ghosting or Win-lock locking the Windows key in game. Note also that the height adjustment is done on two levels.
Finally, the bill will not be excessive since the brand offers its keyboard for $54.99 via Amazon.com. It remains to be seen whether it will be available in France.
Here is the G.Skill datasheet!
