What customers say about "Keys"
Redragon K551 Mechanical Keyboard RED LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard
  • Switches that give the keyboard a very tactile feel with a clear actuation point that I consider perfect for gaming.
  • The keyboard boasts red RGB lighting effects with lot of modes.
  • The sounds and feel is great, can really feel that you have committed to whatever action in-game when you press a button with the blue switches.
  • The key switches are very nice, clicky, tactile and sound great.
  • Its a delight to type on, due to the clicky tactile switches, I can tell even without looking at the screen or keyboard.
Redragon K552 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • Actual mechanical keys - Outremu Blues, a very good copy of Cherry Blues.
  • Solid feel, very tactile, and (for better or worse) probably clackier than Cherrys.
  • Eliminating the number keys saves space and I never used them anyway.
  • Its heavy, the keys feel great, you'll literally just want to type for no reason just so you can type.
  • As with most mechanical keyboards, the keys click with a satisfying sound, and the lights are pleasing to look at.

What customers say about "Features"
Redragon K551 Mechanical Keyboard RED LED Backlit Gaming Keyboard
  • The keyboard can adjust brightness, colour, effect and direction and is reasonably bright for a keyboard of this price.
  • The build quality is superb and the cable, despite not being braided, is long, thick and gold-plated.
  • The key switches are a dream despite being clones of Cherry MX Blues and the lighting has numerous options with a lot of customisation.
  • The keyboard does not have software allowing the user to change the effects of the keys.
  • The backlit profiles weren't fantastic, very limited functionality.
Redragon K552 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • The ability to customize the keys by swapping them out for a different set is a neat feature.
  • It's also a great space saver, featuring all the functions one might need to run a PC.
  • Lighting features are amazing! Tons of options for how the lights will appear.
  • The color options and speeds you control are a nice feature.
  • I love the customizable lighting feature that allows you to set which keys will be lit.
