Back in October of 2017, we looked at a mechanical gaming keyboard from a company that we hadn’t really heard of before, HAVIT. Now we are in the spring of 2018 and have in our possession another mechanical keyboard from HAVIT, this time with a bit of a twist. The HV-KB395L is a low-profile mechanical keyboard that utilizes Kalih PG1350 low-profile Blue switches, resulting in a height of just 22.5mm. Add in some RGB lighting and we think the HV-KB395L might just be a winner. Let’s see if our initial observations turn out to be accurate.

The HV-KB395L’s retail packaging consists of a nice black box containing the keyboard and accessories, surrounded by a white sleeve. The front of the exterior sleeve shows off a top-down view of the keyboard, while also listing a few features of the keyboard.
Around back we see a list of specifications, as well as additional feature items. This side also shows off the HV-KB395L’s removable USB cable.
With the interior box opened up, we see the keyboard is protected by an internal tray and plastic wrapping. There is nothing too flashy about the packaging that HAVIT uses here, but the overall execution is very good, and results in less waste than other packaging methods we have seen used in the past.
Included with the HV-KB395L is a small user’s manual, a small feedback card, and the detachable Micro USB cable that is keyed to fit in the keyboard’s frame.
