    Re: Aorus K9 gaming keyboard uses infrared optical keyswitches

    So... considering they're optical keys, will they respond faster or slower depending on the selected colour?

    Re: Aorus K9 gaming keyboard uses infrared optical keyswitches

    I've learned not to buy expensive keyboards any more. I bought the Corsair K70 and immediately (no more than 2 hours into using it) managed to throw a Banana Daiquri onto it. Most middle-class accident ever. Still works fine, to be fair. CTRL key is a bit sticky though...

    I feel like aorus could have done more here to make the product like like their own. All these keyboards look the same.
    Facts don't exist, only interpretations.

    Maybe with a wider Gigabyte theme to the peripherals and components that might work, but I prefer the ability to better coordinate different items I purchased for their functionality before their brand.

    Is this just marketing gibberish or actually a step-up over a decent mechanical keyboard?
