G.SKILL RipJaws KM570 MX mechanical keyboard
Value for money at 59 USD while remaining true to Cherry MX switches 

We review the KM570 MX mechanical keyboard from the G.Skill gaming series. The unit is affordable (really affordable) and has been fitted with Cherry MX (in our case) red switches. It is a keyboard that offers value for money and doesn't go all berserk with RGB LED activity. Just subtle red back-lit keys and if you want to, you can animate them.

G.Skill opened up a new chapter ever since a year as they offer gaming peripheral products including headsets, mice and keyboards. The G.SKILL KM570 as we review today is a more value keyboard. Armed with Cherry MX switches of your choice red/blue/brown (we review red) G.Skill realized, it's not just all about the RGB LEDs and cool lighting animations these days. This keyboard does come with just one color back lit keys, red and sure these can be animated, turned on but also off. The keyboard goes back to basics in term of design, a ridged product sitting on your desktop that for a change actually looks like a keyboard you grew up with :) Being Cherry MX based it has switchable keys for which some fo them are contoured. The keyboard comes with a USB connector and some aesthetics tweaks.  Though perfect for normal usage, we feel the KM570 is a great FPS and RTS gaming keyboard.




The specs overall include a 1000Hz polling rate (configurable), 100% anti-ghosting, and the media keys and it is a full n-key rollover keyboard. For the G.Skill KM570 you can choose from red, blue and brown Cherry MX keys for your preferred key pressure preferences, Cherry Red is the most popular one available. A product that is on sale at just 59 USD (MSRP) but normally costs 99 USD. 

Let's have a peek at that video first so we get the LED system overview out of the way and then browse our way into the review.
