Today’s review video now this is one that I’ve been looking forward to for a while the guys over at Mac’s keyboard sent me over their Nighthawk Pro X RGB keyboard now this is one that I’ve really been wanting to do for a while.
Max Keyboard Nighthawk Pro X RGB Mechanical Keyboard Review
So let’s go ahead and just take a look at this thing starting with the keyboards construction and design the Nighthawk Pro X is a hundred and forty mechanical keyboard that feels nice and solid offering virtually no flex when mashing down on the keys the board consists of a white metal backplate with a plastic top cover the top cover is made of a soft sealing fingerprint resistant plastic which is always a welcomed design choice in my book and the simplistic design of the keyboard means it’s not going to take up any more space on your desk than necessary the Nighthawk Pro X uses genuine Cherry MX RGB switches and is available in both blue and brown switches of course cherry MX continues to be the industry standard for quality and performance when it comes to mechanical keyboard switches with a 50 million keystroke guarantee that the switches will perform just as good as they did when they were new as on the 50 millionth keystroke you know you’re getting a keyboard that’s going to last an absurdly long time I got my Nighthawk with Cherry MX browns and as is customary on the channel here’s a quick sound test the Nighthawk Pro X comes with full sixteen point eight million color RGB backlighting thanks to its cherry MX RGB switches the backlighting is accentuated by the white backplate that I mentioned earlier personally I really think all RGB keyboards should have white back plates it just makes the life Popkin look so much better while the lights do look quite good the software that controls them isn’t the best you can easily set up one of the five custom profiles with either custom or preset effects I did find though that while basic lighting effects like static custom profiles were easy enough to create there isn’t much that can be done as far as more advanced lighting options like layering the effects that said the preset lighting effects do look pretty good and once you get those five profiles set up you can save them directly under the keyboards onboard memory so that you don’t need to have the software with you when you take your keyboard on the go the key caps on the nighthawk Pro X are very nice these abs key caps feel really nice on your fingertips and have a nice minimalistic font that I find really appealing all of the secondary characters on the keys are illuminated nicely as well which is something that I always like to see my Nighthawk is also rocking some of Mac’s keyboards custom backlit key caps for a more personalized touch if you guys want to see my review on these custom key caps I’ll be making a review of them very soon and I’ll have some extra examples of them as well so be sure to look out for that video the Nighthawk Pro X also comes with a soft rubber wrist rest that’s wrapped in cloth it doesn’t attach to the keyboard like coursera razors wrist rest do for example but it is fairly comfortable to use I love to see wrist rest included with keyboards because adding little extras like this only adds to the value the Nighthawk also boasts not one but two USB ports in the back of the keyboard you don’t see multiple USB passages on a keyboard very often but the more the better in my opinion and the placement of the pass-through is also in an ideal location due to the more minimalistic design of the Nighthawk it doesn’t have any dedicated media or macro keys however you do get media controls by way of the function key and you can also program your own macros to any of the keys you want with the keyboard software you still get the functionality but depending on how important these dedicated controls are to you I can see that being an unfortunate exclusion the LED indicators are pretty neat-looking but I do think that they might be a little bit over designed the weird design of the plastic top cover around them is also a bit much and doesn’t really go with the rest of the feel of the keyboard I would have really liked a much more simple design for the indicators myself but really it’s all cosmetic so some of you guys will like it more than others the underside of the keyboard has four rubberized pads and two rubberized extendable legs to keep the keyboard firmly in place during use the braided cable isn’t too thick for having two USB pastors and it splits into two gold plated USB connectors overall with the recent price drop of I’m the Nighthawk pro-x certainly brings enough value to command the price well it doesn’t have the macro keys that some gamers like to see and it lacks in-game integration with the software I think the level of quality of this board certainly makes it worth your consideration if you’re looking for a really quality RGB mechanical keyboard at a very fair price well that’s it for the video guys let me know in the comment section
