Want a super awesome gaming keyboard to go with the rest of your super awesome gaming gear? You’re definitely reading the right article if that’s the case. In today’s deal of the day we’re looking at the E-BLUE K727, a cheap and colorful mechanical keyboard on sale at GearBest that will help you make short work of those pesky noobs in no time. The design of this keyboard is overall pretty simplistic, but that’s mainly because the manufacturer seems to have focused primarily on the practical aspect of things. As such, the E-BLUE K727 offers some interesting features that can give you a nice advantage while gaming if you know how to exploit them.
First off, this mechanical keyboard immediately stands out thanks to the stainless steel plate found beneath the keys. Granted, this makes the E-BLUE K727 a bit heavier than similar peripherals, but at 0.760 kg (1.675 pounds) this keyboard is certainly not all that heavy. One the bright side, the steel plate gives the keyboard some extra stability, which is always nice, particularly if you tend to rage a lot. The main feature, however, comes in the form of the customizable backlit that offers several colors to choose from and is fully customizable. What’s helpful about this feature is that you can use it to divide your keyboard into several groups of keys and use different light colors to highlight them.
Ever played a MOBA at night and pressed E when you should have pressed R? Well, the E-BLUE K727 takes care of that problem because it allows you to better see the keys and you can also assign different colors to them if you want to be absolutely sure that you’re pressing the right buttons. The E-BLUE K727 also comes equipped with four types of Cherry MX switches and gives some of the traditional keys additional features for easier backlit customization, brightness and speed increase, and more. The Cherry MX switches are also pretty interesting as each of them provides a different feel to the keys. For example, the red one provides quick response with low resistance while the blue one offers click feedback.
To make a long story short, the E-BLUE K727 is a cheap alternative to something like the Razer BlackWidow or DeathStalker. As for the price, we’re talking about $71.52 with free shipping included. That’s a 24% discount from the regular price of $93.85.
