One of the most popular features on any peripheral these days is RGB backlighting. To many people, the added cost that comes with it just isn’t worth putting out. When it comes to keyboards, RGB backlighting can get rather expensive. One with both a rugged build quality, beautiful design and real mechanical switches.
