The modes can be easily switched by Fn+E/R/T(Bluetooth) / Y(2.4GHz) / U(USB Wired).

The Retro 9009 color scheme is inspired by a classic industrial mechanical keyboard of Cherry G80-9009: a gray and white keyboard ornamented with tango-pink and green keys. To retrospect it from a present view, it still stands up-to-date and refreshing.

Select the best switch for your style.

Before choosing what type of mechanical or optical switch, we need to understand it is mostly about preference. You need to look into what will work best for you and what you will use your keyboard for the most. Our Epomaker GK series, and some of our other keyboards allow for hotswappability. This means that even if you dislike the current switch you bought, you can swap it to another switch. Which switch you can swap to depends on your keyboard type.

Awesome keyboard out of the box!

In love with this keyboard so far. I got mine with the Radiant Reds and they're amazing compared to the Gateron Reds I've used. Out of the box, there's barely any wiggle in the housing. I added films to mine, but to be honest, they probably don't need them. They sound great and feel smooth. The switches are hotswappable, which came in handy for lubing the switches. I really love the "exploded" layout of the keyboard with the arrow keys, numpad, and function row slightly separated from the rest of the keyboard as pressing wrong keys is a typical complaint for most compact 96% layout boards.

Contrary to what's listed on the site, these switches do NOT come lubed, only the stabilizers, which are also great.

The keyboard has good functionality - You can connect to 3 bluetooth 5 devices and there's also a mode for usb connection. There is a physical switch on the bottom of the board to switch between Windows and Mac mode, which is a great feature but wasn't listed on the site! When in Mac mode, your function keys become the default function of a Mac keyboard, and Alt becomes Command.

On the inside, the board comes lined with a silicone sheet which is surprising for a board in this price range. It greatly benefits from a layer of foam to reduce echo.

Software is also available to program buttons, macros, and lighting effects, though I haven't used it much.

My only complaint that really isn't much of an issue is that since the switches are red, I've had to use a custom RGB setting in order to achieve a neutral white (the default "white" setting looks pink since the LED shines through the housing of the switches).

Otherwise, this keyboard is magnificent, light enough to carry with me to work, but heavy enough that it doesn't slide around. It comes with a good amount of settings and features, and will definitely keep me happy for a long time!

Good beginner keyboard

This is my first mechanical keyboard and I think it’s a great beginner board. Rgb works well and the multi-mode function comes in handy. It comes with some pink en green keycaps so you can change up the look of the keyboard which is nice. Been using it for about a month now and have no complaints
