Adesso MKB-135B Full Size Mechanical Keyboard


This model's tactile feedback, onboard ports, and rugged design make for a highly satisfying "clicky" keyboard that actually justifies the premium price.

Highly tactile, springy typing; tough construction, with mechanical switches; enhanced support for multi-key presses

Noisy; port labeling is subpar; media controls are via key combination

Remember that what you are paying for here is the construction, which is very solid, and the tactile feel of the keyboard, among the best we've encountered. Paired with its other features, we consider it a more-than-reasonable investment if you spend...

Adesso MKB-135B


The Adesso MKB-135B is marketed as a gaming keyboard. Does it live up to the hype? Find out in our gaming keyboards review.

This keyboard comes with a USB 2.0 hub and ports for a 3.5 mm headset

This gaming keyboard doesn't offer the option to set custom macros

The Adesso MKB-135B is a good keyboard, but it lacks the features to make it gaming specific.

Great low-end mechanical keyboard


Cherry keys. Apparently, Cherry is a company that makes certain colored mechanisms that power some mechanical keyboards. I think different colors mean different things. For instance, mine are light-blue. I have also seen red and brown but I don't know...

Springy feel ; Click-clacky sound ; USB hub, microphone, and headphone jacks ; Lighter" key presses than a Model-M ; Very slight shimmer/pearl dark gray "piano" finish. I'm a person that loves to walk through Ikea and touch all the items on display....

Picky personal preference warning: All of the keys are kind of shallow in reference to the body of the keyboard. This means they have less travel. It is especially pronounced in the arrow keys and the INS, DEL, HOME, END, PGUP, and PGDN keys. If all...

Excellent keyboard


I use this keyboard in a work environment, and I type at 120-130 wpm. People who had not previously commented on my typing speed started giving me "compliments" about it. I interpreted this to mean that my keyboard was distracting even if my coworkers...

Great keyboard at a reasonable price. Good quality key caps, switches all work perfectly, smart layout (function key on the right side so you don't hit it accidentally when reaching for ctrl or winkey)

It's pretty loud, but if you've done your homework on mechanical keyboards, you know that cherry mx blue switches are loud due to their design. See "other thoughts" for a recommendation on how to use this in a shared environment without distracting others

I would recommend this keyboard to anyone who types or games.

Excellent tactile feel, amazingly responsive, easy to type on & increased typing speed. This keyboard is built to last, offers both PS/2 & USB connections and has some extras (like function keys which double as media keys, USB ports and Headphone...

None. Zero

Bang for the $$$


I tried out my friends black widow ultimate as well before buying this and I can say with certainty that I enjoy typing on this more. Even he admitted that he liked the feel and height of my keyboard more. As far as comparing it to the das ultimate,...

True N Key, 2 usb ports as well as mic and audio that face the rear and not the side. No cheesy leds. Perfect height and the keys feel amazing. Tactile feel you would expect from mx blues. I was looking for a mechanical keyboard that would be the most...

None, I really can't think of any negatives with this keyboard. Extremely happy with my purchase

Great Keyboard


This keyboard is so wonderful to type on. I have been wanting a mechanical for a while now and for this price range this one is perfect. The only flaw i can find is the sound is very attenuated through the keyboard headphone jack. Use the one on the...

Great for the price...


Good board. I'm sure someone makes a better one for twice the price.

Feels good. Pretty sound. Just an enjoyable keyboard

Bulky! Too bulky. the keys sit a good 1.5" off the desk. Keys have too much play...but it isn't too bad. I just happen to care about play a lot

Great. As good as Das Keyboard


Fantastic keyboard. I came from using Das Keyboard so I had high expectations. The USB hub works much better than Das Keyboard in Windows (though I've used both in Linux with no problems at all ever). I still love Das Keyboard-- mine just had worn...

USB Hub functionality (separate from PS2 connector so you can have the PS2 n-key rollover and your hub as well). Nice clicky cherry MX blue switches. Analog audio ports on top are very nice and just connect straight through. Keyboard caps have a...

None, but if I could ask for something it would be an analog audio volume knob on the keyboard. That would just be sexy
