I’ve been very pleased with my purchase. Though the case is entirely plastic, it feels very solid. The PBT keys have a great texture and feel, and the heavier, linear Gateron Black optical switches provide the sound and smooth feel that I wanted. They keys are impervious to light, though, so the backlight only illuminates the space between the keys.
I use my AK61S with my old iPad Pro and, unlike many other keyboards, the bluetooth connection has been very dependable. I also very much appreciate the Apple-style modifier keys. The keyboard lacks flip-up feet to alter the angle at which it rests but that’s not a big problem because of the angle of the keyboard case itself. The function key is well-positioned so it is easy to use the secondary arrow function despite the lack of arrow keys. I do miss the ‘Delete’ key but if I wanted that, I shouldn’t have gotten a keyboard with a 60 percent laybout.
The only real con was the price. Including shipping and taxes, the total cost was C$146 – which is about the same as a Durgod Taurus K320 or just slightly less than a DROP ENTR on Amazon Canada, if you’re into TKL keyboards.
Pros: sold feel, dependable bluetooth, nice keycaps, smooth optical switches
Cons: cost, no shine-through for the keys
Bottom Line: I love the keyboard and am very happy with my purchase.
