VIA Programmable

With the popular V65 keyboard, CIDOO is launching an upgraded keyboard that supports VIA programmable – and can be connected by type-C wired, 2.4G wireless and 5.0 Bluetooth! For those who are used to using other keys that are not in the keyboard, the VIA software is here to help! Creating macros and remapping keys are easily fulfilled with VIA. Equipped with on-board memories, the key changes can be saved in different layers and the keyboard can be easily switched to different layers. It is ideal for those who demand accuracy, speed, reliability and endurance for long time gaming sessions.

1800 Compact Mechanical Keyboard

Missing a numpad for office working? CIDOO ABM098 saves you the fuss to buy another numpad! Coming in 1800 compact, the keyboard comes with a numpad that can be necessary for many people, as well as the main alpha area and some additional cursor keys. Still, the keyboard is saving space for the mouse area compared with a full-size keyboard.

Wired or Bluetooth Wireless Connectivity

With built-in 4000mAh battery, the keyboard supports connection via Bluetooth wireless connectivity, as well as with the included Type-C USB cable. The keyboard can be connected up to 3 device and each device can be easily. With Bluetooth connection, it easily connects seamlessly to your devices without messy cables.

Gasket-Mounted, Poron PCB Foam & IXPE Switch Sheet

Gasket mounting is a type of keyboard mounting, where no screw are used into the switch plate. With the high-quality Poron PCB foam and IXPE Switch that aim to dampen noises, the keyboard creates a cleaner sound profile because the gaskets cushion the shock of each keypress.

Customized Linear Switches with & Hotswappable

The switches in the keyboard are Quark Matte switches that features linear typing experience and 47g operating force, CIDOO Mint 48g and CIDOO Blue-through switch 55g. Being factory lubed, the switches are durable and attribute to creating clear acoustic environment. The keyboard is equipped with hot-swappable PCB that supports 3-pin and 5-pin mechanical switches. Hot-swappable PCB is convenient for replacing other mechanical switches freely without soldering issue. By swapping the switches, you can build your own keyboard that fits your typing habits easily.

South-facing LEDs & Light Diffusers

CIDOO ABM098 features RGB backlights that are also customizable. With south-facing LEDs, the keyboard avoids the interference with the popular cherry profile keycaps. What’s more, the keyboard comes with light pipes which make the RGB lights brighter and bring more fun for customization.

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.

    1000000/10 Would Order Again!!!

    I’m absolutely OBSESSED with this keyboard - the sound - the parts - how fully customizable it is and the pieces that it came with - it came fully pieced together with two swappable keys of varying colors and a tool to remove the keys and the hot swappable switches - the lights and how I can use it Bluetooth or with the cord. Besides the fact that it took a little bit of time to reach me and I’m just a naturally impatient person - I have NO complaints and will be using this keyboard forever and buying from epomaker again 🥰☺️🥳🫶🏽🙏🏽

    Review CIDOO ABM098

    In my opinion, it’s a good keyboard, high quality, but there is a problem with the drivers to connect it to the computer to set it up(VIA software). the PntScr button is missing, and the enter should be large because I often miss

    First Mechanical Keyboard

    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!

    Cidoo ABM098 review

    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.
    Love it!

    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. :(
