Let`s get a little off the topic first. Speaking of ThundeRobot, we might relate it to gaming notebooks if nothing else. As the specialized participant in Gaming industry, ThundeRobot has more than aspired an outstanding array of gaming notebooks. It has established itself in gaming accessories market as well. As luck may have it, I got the chance to get my hands on the ThundeRobot Red Spider K750T – the latest masterpiece of the team.
K750T comes wrapped in a kraft paper-made envelope with a conspicuous LOGO stamped right at the middle of the surface.
Unwrapping the envelope, we get sight of the main package, a cartoon box outshined by the XL sized ThundeRobot logo.
Flip over, we catch a glimpse of its main characteristics.
As its name suggests, the first thing that stands out about this K750T is its All-Red design, too thrilling for mankind to ignore. Seems that ThundeRobot has an excellent grip over the processing, as the keycaps adopts a plating procedure that`s rarely seen.
The Aluminum alloy-made Upper and Lower lids definitely aid to its sense of existence. Personally, I bet its doomed to be the long-sought needle in a huge haystack.
Starting off, a keyboard is more than just a tool for typing to hardcore gamers. On the contrary, it is to you what the katana is to a samurai. The majority of gaming keyboards aim to provide superior audio and tactile feedback by paring each key to its own spring-loaded switch, making it difficult to know where to start.
Rather than elaborating affairs with a bunch of extra keys to map out MMO controls, K750T appears to be more compact by placing 87 keys in terms of mainstream suspending structure. Thankfully, the addition of plated keycaps and aluminum alloy body makes it a more texture feeling peripheral.
In particular, the plating procedure distinguishes the keycaps from the crowd while barely compromising to the sharpness of the letters when the keyboard is lit up.
Switch to another angle
The standard 87-key rollover reveals the absence of the numeric keypad. Next to the Brand Logo printed at the right embeds a pair of indicator lights. (Click K75T with numeric keypad)
Skip to the keycap. The electroplated keycap itself is made from ABS materials with a clickiness a little bit less pronounced than K70T, whatever.
Similar to the Cherry MX Browns switches, the Customized ThundeRobot switches last longer and are more consistent in feel as well as responsiveness than rubber dome ones. To claim optimized waterproof and dust-proof performance, a cover is fenced around the cross axis, which makes it more appealing to the eyes.
Smooth and Classic, both the upper and lower bezel are aluminum alloy-made, CNC processed. Meanwhile, the 3 screws placed at both sides leave chances for disassembly.
Bottom up, an integrated aluminum alloy body turns mapped out with none screws but only 4 rubber feet can be found, each 0.8 inch off the edge of one corner.
Along with the above details, the Red Spider Logo did grace the keyboard a great deal.
The key position transforms into somewhat of a staircase-like distribution when the supporting frames are folded.
However, the unfolded status is pretty much universally preferred.
All higher end peripherals come standard with some form of braided cable. This is also true for K750T. An added bonus, an extra keycap puller is accessorized.
OMG ! It`s gorgeous ! With an array of gorgeous lighting pre-sets available right out of the box, plus the ability to completely customize and adjust every RGB lighting detail right down to the brightness and speed at which effects perform – endless possibilities await you.
Uniform luminance without light leakage.
Let’s cover the screaming RGB modes: it comes with 6 Modes, each with 3 kinds of backlighting effects – That`s a total of 18, not to mention the homogeneous lighting penetrability. RGB modes apart, the keyboard delivers a complete 16.78 million color RGB spectrum to each light emitting diode.
Overall, ThundeRobot developed a very interesting concept with the keycaps and design, definitely something different. I love that they never try to play safe, and go with some offbeat ideas instead.
