Full Disclosure: A4TECH’s Bloody Division provided the product sample used in this article.

A4Tech is a Taiwanese company whose “Bloody” gaming division was launched in 2012. Bloody produces gaming keyboards and mice using a unique switch technology: rather than metal contact points closing an electrical circuit when a key is pressed, Bloody’s mechanical switches use infrared LEDS and photosensors, which Bloody claims provides faster key response and a more reliable and durable switch.

In this article, Benchmark Reviews looks at the A4Tech Bloody B188 Light Strike Keys Gaming Keyboard, the low-cost entrant in Bloody’s keyboard lineup. Bloody keeps the cost down by using rubber-dome switches for most of the keys, saving their pricier infrared mechanical switches for the 8 special gaming keys.



  • Bloody Light Strike infrared mechanical switches for gaming keys
  • Double-shot key caps
  • Screw-enhanced space bar
  • Media control via Fn function keys

Let’s take a look at this keyboard in the next section.
