    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersFirst of all I had to return one lavender GK61 keyboard I got which was faulty due to the equals and plus /f12 (=+) key was triggering the whole top right set of keys ({[]}=+ and enter) so that’s mainly why I gave 4 stars, another thing is that the keyboard feels quite sensitive which can be a bad thing for gaming for example resting my finger on key caps sometimes select that key, this can be annoying when playing a game like Fortnite when your ready your finger on a building key and it accidentally triggers.

    Some good things on the GK61. Hot-swappable switches gives you a the chance to upgrade. the typing experience which is smooth and satisfying, the sound of the keys are a little clicky and thoccy ( Gateron mechanical yellows), the color of the keyboard is very accurate to the listing image’s and the rgb is very vibrant and has a lot of customizability with the app.

    Overall the GK61 is worth the 69.99 price tag due to the pleasing experience I’ve had so far with typing and performance in long gaming sessions.

    The keyboard is good, but I got a typo on my keyboard kry (two esc keys instead of ‘1!’)

    Deciding whether to keep it or return it because I really like the keyboard.

    Update: They were kind enough to give me a refund of 10 and keep the keyboard(I can just replace the key now). So 5 stars for that.

    All Good, except a Typo on my Keyboard.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersIt’s a really nice keyboard, especially if you are new to mechanical keyboards, I recommend getting a set of keycaps like I did, the stock ones aren’t as good as some other ones you can get, overall great keyboard

    Really good

    Very good keyboard, the switches are super good, and the only cons is the keycaps but overall they are good.

    Bought for my 11 year old to use in conjunction with his Xbox. It is perfect, good size and very hard wearing considering how vigorously the keys are used! According to him it’s easy to use and set up. It was a good buy and reasonable price!

    Bought for my son to replace his disastrous first choice and this one has stood up well to many hours of gaming. Very pleased.

    everything works as it should, has a nice clack to it thats not loud unless you’re bashing on the keys. doesn’t need to be pushed in fully for the keys to register. and you can swap keycaps easily.

    I have been using this keyboard for over a month now I believe. And from my limited experience i can safely comment on a few things

    – Ok the packaging for this is pretty shady lol. My box was all dinged up, the sticker that is supposed to
    hold it close was open and lost all it’s adhesive 🙂 But regardless, inside the keyboard was pretty safe
    and hadn’t moved or been damaged at all

    – Sturdy build with no loose parts or rattling’
    – Aluminum switch plate feels premium and gives a good feel
    – Keycaps are decent, not the best but didn’t expect them to be. I would suggest upgrading to PBT
    keycaps as this board is pretty much build to be customized.
    – Cable is of decent quality as well, so is the keycap puller and switch puller
    – This keyboard also says “pre lubed” like every other mechanical keyboard lol, but it’s very minimal and
    has no effect on the sound/feel even if you wipe it off. I recommend lubing them on your own.
    I would recommend Petreplus 2700 if you’re not looking to spend 5k on 10grams of krytox205g0 lol.
    I have a review on the lube too, and in my experience, it’s a good lube if used correctly.

    – I have the brown switches. Good, fast, smooth, and sound if very pleasing as well.
    – Again, pRe lUbEd, so wipe that stuff off, and lube them yourself, that will just elevate the experience.

    – The PCB and switch plate sit very deep into the case, which is good for sturdiness and security, but then
    if you want to add foam to your keyboard, that would be a bit difficult. Maybe i didn’t do it right, but
    thats my experience.
    – The software is janky AF. HK gaming really needs to focus on this, otherwise, their brand image will
    never be able to get better as their software feels like something from Windows XP. But the keyboard
    isn’t very software dependant, so it isn’t much of an issue. There are keys to switch between light
    modes, but if you want to keep custom lighting then you’ll need the software, which is relatively simply
    to use, even though it looks very very old lol.
    – This board is a 60% which might be small for a lot of people. I didn’t mind it at all, in fact I loved it. I edit videos and photos, and i didn’t face any problems, and I love the compact size. But I know most people don’t, so listing it here as a con.

    All in all, I would recommend this board due to its high customizability. You can go for the Keychron V2 hot swap version if you want something bigger than a 60% as well, but this was cheaper than that for me and based on reviews pretty much giving in direct competition as a good budget mechanical keyboard
    But I am happy with my decision, hope this helped you in making yours too.
