I have reviewed several mechanical keyboards over the years such as the Gamdias Hermes E1, Gamdias Hermes and the Masione LED Gaming Keyboard and today I’m going to be taking a look at the Rii K63C Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and am going to let you know how good it is and if it’s worth it.
The Rii K63C is the little brother so to speak of their K61C keyboard and the reason I say that is because unlike the K61C, the Rii K63C doesn’t have a number pad on the right side of the keyboard. For some users that’s a good thing as a lot of gamers don’t like the number pad there, while others do enjoy it and actually use it.
First feature I want to mention is that the Rii K63C comes with a little stand on the keyboard itself so that you can put your mobile device on it and have it easily accessible right in front of you. This is something that you don’t see on most keyboards out there and definitely something pretty neat in my opinion and actually well thought of.
Another nice addition to this keyboard is the braided cable to help keep it from getting tangled and to give it durability. Most people don’t realize that these keyboards get moved around quite a bit so having a good, durable cable is important.
The Rii K63C comes with five different settings for the backlight of the keyboard itself. You can change between the five settings by using the FN + PrtScrn buttons and then you can also use the FN + Arrow Keys to change the brightness of those colors.
After using the keyboard for a while I have to say the key press sensitivity and such is absolutely amazing. While I’m not one to normally use a mechanical keyboard as I’ve always much preferred my Logitech K350 over anything else, the Rii K63C was an absolute pleasure to use. It felt amazingly comfortable from the minute I opened it up, set it up and placed on the desk. If this keyboard had a number pad I’d be using it as my daily driver in a heartbeat and would literally put my Logitech keyboard to the side.
The Rii K63C Mechanical Gaming Keyboard might seem a bit expensive to a lot of people, but at $69.99 I feel this is a good deal especially for what you get. You’re getting one solid keyboard that has removable keys(they are stored on the back side of the keyboard), a key puller(also stored on the back side of the keyboard), a good quality braided cable and several options for various backlight colors for the keys themselves.
