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.

Probably keep it till the letters wear off


This keyboard helped me realize how clumsy of a typist I am, and hopefully I'll get used to the sensitivity quickly.

Sturdy construction with good heft ; While not any louder than my old Logitech the keystrokes are a bit higher pitched. This may make it seem louder ; The USBs are nice, if a bit cramped

The lip around the top of the keyboard means you won't be using any fat USB devices with it without an extender or hub of some sort ; This keyboard does seem a bit taller than my last one, making it awkward to rest my wrists on the desk as I type

Not ideal for most modern motherboards, though i would like to see the PS/2 port on any new MB. Using for a few months now and i am convinced the specs are not correct. I searched for a few weeks on this product , the most reputable sites all say the...

Good Quality build and good price for what it claims to be

Very heavy key switches with metallic ring when a key press bottoms out ; Not a pleasant typing experience. I wish it was ; The PS/2 to USB adapter that i received did not work

Simple but aesthetically pleasing. Good design , no need to adjust heights ; This thing is tough, It has fallen to the floor a few times and it is more likely to damage whatever it may impact then vise versa. Seriously though the build quality is...

Blue LED Numlock is is very bright. It shines though a USB flash drive somewhat

As you can see the Y key still registers, but it sits a little lower than the other keys. A couple of taps and it is flush again. Replaced an old Microsoft non mechanical keyboard.

It is a solid keyboard and has some weight. The feet are great no sliding at all. It is a keyboard that has the feel of an old time keyboard. Think data entry keyboards

Little disappointed that one of the keys sticks a little already. Figure I'll give it a few more days to see if it corrects itself before contacting Adesso

early impressions


This is the last one for me that i am going to try, the last one was a G710 plus and i really disliked it but returning these things is too much of a hassle so i will keep this and hopefully like it as much as the other reviews stated they did.

So it does have that tactile feel of Cherry MX blue, which i am pretty sure that is what the MKB -135 is equipped with ; Heavy, i like the weight lets me know it is probably expensive to make ; Has minimalist design and is aesthetically pleasing while...

Not quite standard size. The "Full Size " is kind of a big selling point for me as i wanted that simple standard shape and familiarity of other keyboards i used. Sadly that is not the case as it the keys are not the same size nor are in the same...

Fantastic Developer Keyboard


This was the first mechanical keyboard that I ever purchased. I loved it, and have purchased 3 more for various computers. Honestly, I didn't realize the gem that I had until I recently tried a few other mechanical keyboards. As I use the others, I...

Great tactile feedback ; Fantastic key feel ; USB hub ; Headphone and mic jacks ; Defaults the function keys as function keys ; Standard layout, no goofy key placement ; Multi-media functions available

Nothing major, only a tiny nitpicks:Needs an (included) adapter to hook up as USB (Default is PS/2)

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...
