I’m picky, and have been described as a perfectionist too many times to count. So it stands to reason that the keyboard, that peripheral attachment that works like a natural extensions of the body for the eSports gamer, becomes a personal choice for many. Keyboards are used for both everyday workload as well as entertainment, so picking the right one is important. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the Zalman ZM-K700M Mechanical Gaming LED Keyboard, which features genuine Cherry MX Red switches with LED backlighting, and programmable macro capability.
Cherry MX-series switches have become all the rage for PC gamers and hardware enthusiasts. Most mechanical keyboard varieties utilize either Red, Brown, or Blue switches, each designed with its own unique feature set. Cherry Red switches, like those featured on the Zalman ZM-K700M, use a linear design that foregoes tactile feedback and audible click sound, while delivering a lightweight 45 cN resistance. Brown switches offer the same lightweight response, but add tactile feedback without clicking. Blue switches offer a slightly more resistant 50 cN response with tactile feedback and audible click.
