Rotary Knob for Media Control & NKRO Supportable
CIDOO has listened to the community that the knob on V65 is too small, and so ABM98 is designed with a noticeable knob to control volume! By simply rotate left, right and press, the keyboard can turn the system volume up, down and muted. As for anti-ghosting, the keyboard is NKRO.

This is an excellent entry level board! No complaints. I've gotten my hands on a couple other boards since this one, and even the high quality ones don't match this one in terms of style and comfort! Stock switches are well-lubed. Stabilizers sound great, and don't rattle at all! It's a pretty clicky clacky keyboard, so if you're working in an office, you might want to look elsewhere!
Just arrived and I love it!
Heavier than I expected but that isn't a problem. Its amazing and I love the fact that it has 3 types of connection, the sound does not annoy me and the RGB is custom and beautiful.
I got the Cidoo ABM098 Mint and it exceeded my expectations. It works great since it has all the functions that I'm looking for in a keyboard. Been using it for weeks and until now it's my go-to keyboard. The only concern I have right now, is the VIA Software, I can't seem to run it in my computer. :(
