Pros: Design and build quality, RGB colours, clicky-sound is satisfying (subjective), price
Cons: No wrist rest, not a well known Chinese switch manufacturer, no additional accessories, RGB colour is per section and not individual, heavy switch to type on (subjective), little bit of key cap flex, available in US layout only
Build Quality & Accessories: 8.5/10
Design & Look: 9/10
My final Rating: 8.5/10
Review Date: October 2015
Review Price: £70 (can be found in the US for cheaper at $90)
First of all I would like to thank Gary from HAVIT for sending me the keyboard for review.
After having previously reviewed various mechanical keyboards that had various different mechanical switches on them, I was intrigued to see what HAVIT had in store. I’ve previously been really impressed with the price to performance ratio from HAVIT products – where they’ve been able to produce good quality products at an affordable price.
The HAVIT HV-KB366L can be found for around £70 on AmazonUK and around $90 on AmazonUSA. As you’ll be able to see from the conversion rate, the price in the US is much more favourable, however as I am based in the UK, I will be reviewing it at the UK pricing and availability.
On another note, this keyboard can unfortunately only be bought in a US layout. At the time of writing there’s currently no UK layout available, which can be a deal breaker for some.
Before getting into my written review, here’s my video review of the HAVIT HV-KB366L:
