Drevo Joyeuse 96-Key Wireless Mechanical Keyboard Review

The last keyboard from Drevo that I took a look at was the Calibur, which actually turned out to be one of my favorite keyboards of 2017. So getting a new keyboard from Drevo it definitely has a lot of live up to. Today we have the Joyeuse, which is a 96-key keyboard that features low-profile mechanical switches, an aluminum alloy housing, wireless capability, white LED backlighting, and a super-thin design. Drevo tells us this keyboard is really made for office settings and typists, so we wouldn't call it a gaming keyboard, but we are going to put it through the paces...

Well Corsair has got your covered with their new K68 Mechanical Gaming keyboard. In the past keyboards that offered dust and spill resistant were membrane-style keyboards, but with the K68 you get true Cherry MX Red key switches, spill and dust resistance, and of course that Corsair style and quality.

CM Storm QuickFire XT Gaming Keyboard Review

We’ve seen gaming keyboard's evolve over the past 5 years. First it was mechanical key switches, then backlighting, and now we are seeing RGB backlighting. While having lights and everything are cool and all if the keyboard itself is made poorly and does not perform well no one is going to be buying your keyboard anyways. That brings us to the CM Storm QuickFire XT, which has actually been on the market since 2013. Three years later the keyboard is still being sold and retains its retail value being sold for $92.17 at our favorite online retailer. The QuickFire XT is a full 104-key mechanical gaming keyboard, and that is it. No flashy lights, no crazy software, just a pure keyboard. Our version of the keyboard (SGK-4030-GKCL1) comes with Cherry MX Blue mechanical key switches, but Cooler Master offers the keyboard in all Cherry MX flavors. Let’s take a look and see why the QuickFire XT is still a top seller after 3 years.
