    Does this keyboard have tabs / feet that flip out on the underside to adjust the slope of the keys ?
    Jay W on Dec 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, there are feet that flip out. They don't raise the keyboard up very much. The feet will lift the back of the keyboard up about half an inch, maybe less.
    The photos shows multiple colors are something this keyboard is capable of but reviews are saying white only - which is it?

    Enthusiast Backlit Full Size OUTEMU Red Switch Mechanical Keyboard
    Enthusiast Backlit Full Size OUTEMU Blue Switch Mechanical Keyboard
    Enthusiast Backlit Full Size OUTEMU Blue Switch Mechanical Keyboard
    BEST ANSWER: There are two boards--one with RGB colours (more on that later) and one with only white. The 'RGB' board has static colours, for example the "A" key is red and will always be red and the white board will only display white.
    Is there a way to swap the Alt and Command/Windows key locations for macOS usage?
    A shopper on Jul 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: If you grab a keybinding program, sure. Other than that, you can easily turn off the windows key but the device doesn't come with software for custom mapping.
    Can I put custom key caps on this keyboard? Will they fit?

    Good quality keyboard, some info incorrect
    Good keyboard for the price, mechanical keyboards normally seem to go for more. I would definitely recommend this for entry into the mechanicals. The 7 rating is more for the amount of inaccuracies in the listing.

    PROS: Great keyboard with a nice weight to it. Seems to be of a good quality.

    CONS: The information on the Monoprice site is inaccurate. Specifically, the description shows "Premium cable breakout: Fully braided cable" which is incorrect, it is not braided. Also, the 5th picture of the keyboard shows various LED colors which is not the case, there is just the one white color. The instructions for the keyboard were completely wrong, luckily a quite chat with support got me an email with the correct directions.

    Solid mechanical keyboard at a good price
    I'm probably one of the few, but I actually sought out this particular keyboard layout with the odd Enter key shape. Some people might find it awkward, so be aware that it does look exactly like the image.

    The keys feel good under your fingers. It's a bit louder than my old (non-mechanical) keyboard. The keys feel like they are raised a little bit high, but I got used to it fairly quickly.

    The keyboard is a good size. There could be a little more space between the Ins key/arrow keys area and the main keys.

    The backlight is a nice extra. There are a few different levels of brightness and they lighting can be turned off entirely. When you're in a dark area, they labels on the keys don't show up well unless the backlight is on. There are a few fancy lighting settings, but most of them are just a novelty. The lighting does turn off automatically if you don't touch any keys for a while.

    There is an instruction sheet on how to adjust various options, like the lighting. I found the lighting options were not correct. But it was fairly easy to figure out. The sheet indicates that FN + Ins toggles through the different lighting modes, but it seems that each of the keys Ins, Home, PgUp, Del, End, and PgDn are all tied to the different lighting patterns instead.

    The keys are louder than a cheap keyboard. I don't find it annoying. There is a bit of a squeak when I press the spacebar.

    Also, the description is misleading - there is no detachable, braided wire. It's just a standard USB cable. I didn't measure, but I'd guess it's a 6ft cable.

    PROS: - Solid keyboard and well-priced
    - I like the keyboard layout (might be a con for some).
    - Backlighting can be shut off.
    - No extra 'sleep' 'wakeup', 'power' keys

    CONS: - No braided cable
    - The spacebar squeaks a bit
    - The instructions seem to have incorrect information

    good, solid and great priced keyboard.
    so when i got this keyboard i was excited and apprehensive at the same time? why? well because this was my first long experience with a "red" switch mechanical keyboard. when i opened the box and saw this keyboard i was pretty impressed. it's a very sturdy keyboard and doesn't bend or bow at all when flexed. the look of the keyboard is really nice and i'm a big fan of it. the keys are really nice and the white backlight is amazingly bright and clean. my main keyboard has a white backlight but compared to this keyboard backlight is like shining a light bulb against the sun, basically, there is no competition. the backlight is great and the lighting options are great also. the "red" switches are actually pretty nice. if you've ever used anything similar then you're not in for much of a surprise here. there are a couple gripes for me though, small but gripes nonetheless. the enter key...why for the love of Gaben would you use this enter key?! i hit the key next to it way too many times and i simply do not like it. In the description of the product it says about a braided detachable cable, which this does not have, not too much of an issue but definitely something that should be corrected.. another thing is the directions. the ones that came in the box weren't correct and i had to go to the website to find the correct directions for the lighting options. overall it is a very solid keyboard and for its price if you want a quality mechanical keyboard without all that RGB craziness then this should definitely be on your list.

    PROS: great backlight
    solid feel
    good keys
    nice lighting options

    CONS: have to go online for correct lighting instructions
    no braided cable
    annoying enter key

    Nice keyboard with a small flaw, switches were not for me.
    This is a surprisingly well made keyboard for the price. I didn't expect much but was pleasantly surprised by how nice the keyboard looked. Except for one thing. When typing there is occasionally a squeaking noise from the keys. Almost like a metal joint that needs lubricant. Kind of annoying. Took off a star for that.

    That issue aside, I actually had to return the keyboard because the switches were far more sensitive than I was expecting. I was expecting the relative keypress sensitivity of Cherry MX Reds, but these switches will register a press at the slightest touch it felt like. This became a problem for me as I would make so many typos and trigger so many accidental shortcuts. just from the edge of my hand hitting something it shouldn't or my finger being slightly off it's aim. The switch resistance feels about the same as Cherry MX Reds, but the sensitivity to register a key press was MUCH greater.

    If you have no issues with extremely sensitive switches, this is a fine keyboard

    PROS: Price
    Build quality

    CONS: occasional key squeaking
    switches were more sensitive than I expected.

    Nice switches - weird enter key
    I bought the red switch version for home and got the blue switches for the office. I love the feel of these switches.
    The backlight effects are fun and built into the keyboard (no software needed). The steady backlight is quite useful in low light situations.

    PROS: Great keys
    easy control of backlight
    sturdy build

    CONS: weird enter key

    Great entry level Red-switch keyboard
    Normal keyboard users will take some getting used to the red switches, but pleasant to use once you're accustomed to the actuation. The backlit controls make this keyboard indispensable to my lighting conditions. Sturdy keyboard that isn't likely to dance around your desk and the keys feel solid and sturdy as well.

    As others have said, I have a few squeaky keys and the odd shaped enter key with misplaced " \ " key make for more than a few typos and accidental sends, but a minor complaint. The minimal key depression to activate takes a lot of getting used to, you do not need to slam these keys, but you can, if that's how you roll.

    I do recommend this keyboard, at least for those looking to try out the world of red and blue switches, it's a solid gateway keyboard.

    PROS: Sturdy
    Well lit, with great brightness control
    Clean typing

    CONS: Weird Enter key shape
    Some squeaky keys (my space bar)
    Too many light modes. (You may want lots of fun lights, I just want the full-lit mode.)

    Nice but a little misleading.
    A good entry level no-name mechanical keyboard for a good price. If you've never had one, it's best to start at the bottom, and that's right here.

    PROS: Decent build quality. Feels very substantial. Removable palm rest is a nice touch, as are all the flashy LED modes. I wasn't aware I was getting all of that when I placed the order. Red keys are drastically different than I was expecting. Very light touch required. I am used to using genuine Cherry MX Blue's for the last 5 years and these reds are very quiet and take a LOT less force. Probably a good thing, once I re-learn how to type on this keyboard (and it's funky enter key, see CON's).

    CONS: Squeaky keys. NOT MULTI-COLORED. It's WHITE ONLY. Also the cable is NOT BRAIDED. It's smooth rubber. Kind of a strange OSI type of Enter key/ back slash key and ANSI everything else. Not sure why they went that route. The font used is pretty awful as well. I would have preferred something a bit less "game" specific.

    Monoprice has given me this Review Sample free of charge, That said. It's a very nice keyboard.

    The layout is great, Very fast to get used too for typing or gaming. Gaming on this keyboard is very fluid while switching to other keys for movement. it does have anti ghosting and 10 key roll over like it says, Only if I had more than 10 fingers to test it more. Input isn't delayed as I've had problems with other keyboards in the past.

    The backlight has about 10-15 minute timer before turning off on its own, Can be a little annoying if you're using a controller for a game like driving then want to switch to keyboard/mouse for shooting in the dark. As for the backlight its self. it has many options like, breathing, snake, wave, lighting up what you press, ripple and a few more. Having the backlight full on does have a small hum to it tho and I tested this on two keyboards as well. Other than that. It's a great keyboard.

    PROS: Nice backlighting and many options. Keys feel nice, and not too loud.

    CONS: Not fully braided cable as it says, it's only white colour on the backlight.

    Excellent Keyboard for the price
    I got this keyboard and have been using it daily for a few weeks now. I love the backlighing features, and the LED effects. The mechanical keys aren't manufactured by Cherry Corp, but they also don't cost what Cherry Corp keys cost. I purchased this for work, and it functions fine.

    My only complaint, and it's a small one, is the placement of the backslash.. It is to the left of the enter key, instead of above, and it's taken a few weeks to get used to it. I will get used to it as I use it, but it was noticeable when I first started.

    PROS: cool LED features
    red mechanical switches, for quite typing
    nice solid feel to it

    CONS: placement of the backslash key

    Non-standard Enter/Backslash Key Configuration
    The keyboard feels good and the lighting control is good enough. The keys are very responsive to the touch. This next part is partly my fault, but I don't know why it's like this to begin with. Look closely at the picture of the keyboard layout. The Enter Key and Backslash Key are not in the normal positions. If you type with all of your fingers, this is really annoying because the Enter key is not in the right place. For this one reason, I would not buy it again.

    PROS: Good clicking keys
    Controllable lighting patterns

    CONS: Enter and Backslash keys in the wrong place!!!
