hey what’s going on guys its brain bean here again and today we’re going to be taking a look at a bite-sized wireless mechanical keyboard that is perfect for a lot of different situations so let’s go ahead and just check this one out so today we’re taking a look at the velocity ur mini it’s a 61-key mechanical keyboard that is wireless and starting as always with the overall construction in design this keyboard is fairly weighty for its size I mean it really doesn’t take up much footprint at all the Debord itself weighs about a pound and a half maybe just a little bit more.

And it doesn’t sound like it would be that much but when you pick it up it really does feel pretty robust it’s got a really nice sturdy metal backplate in the plastic casing that wraps around the board as well feels nice and robust it doesn’t feel like it’s gonna get you know broken or worn down and that’s really good because this is the type of keyboard that you’re gonna just throw in a backpack and take with you and since it does not have a removable top cover to put over it that’s really important to have a pretty rugged feeling design aesthetically as you would expect with the 60-percent keyboard there’s really not a whole lot going on here to talk about it’s very simple very minimalistic the footprint again is not very big and there’s no branding or any LEDs or anything like that popping out at you so again just very plain and minimalistic there the font on the keyboard is kind of your plain simple font which I really like because a lot of times with these budget mechanical keyboards they kind of go out of their way to have a more stylized or intrusive font just to kind of make the board stand out a little bit and I like that they kept things nice and simple with this board now one thing to point out is that this board is not backlit and one thing that did surprise me is that these key caps are actually double shot abs key caps which is something you really don’t see very often it’s actually pretty good quality key caps for a board especially in this price point I would have liked it if it had backlighting but I understand that with a wireless board obviously that’s gonna cut into your battery life and so you kind of have to make a decision there as to which one you would rather have for me I do like to work in low light situations quite a bit so having a little bit of backlighting for me is kind of a plus and the reason for that too is on this board this board will last you for thirty days on a single charge and I feel like that’s a little bit excessive sure we don’t want to have to go and charge our peripherals all the time but for something like a keyboard that’s easily plugged in with the included USB cable I feel like cutting that time in half for say a little bit of white backlighting for me would be a fair trade now obviously this board is kind of trying to emulate the and pro and that board does have backlighting and that board does just fine there as well so you know for me that would be something I would have liked to have seen but on a positive note for this board it does charge to full in about four hours and again that for our charge is gonna last you 30 days worth of use and I feel like that’s pretty damn good especially you know if you’re somebody that doesn’t want to have to keep the cable connected all the time that would make this pretty viable even for using on a desk setup that you just want to keep nice and an ultra clean you wouldn’t really need to plug it in every night after use if that gets tedious you know maybe just once a week or so plug it in as for the switches this board uses out Teemu Brown switches which Ultimo is one of my favorite budgets which is out there they definitely don’t feel nearly as good as say Cherry MX browns or gaturro on brown switches but for a wireless mechanical keyboard I’d say that that’s not a bad price at all and there’s definitely worth switch is out there that you could get so I feel like out to Moo Browns is a fairly safe bet especially for a budget board just so you guys can hear what I’m talking about here is a quick sound test of those out Teemu Brown switches so as you guys can imagine there’s not a whole lot of extras when it comes to this board you do get a set of four red key caps they kind of come in this like candy-apple red color they’re blank so you can put them on just about any one of the keys and just kind of use them for WASD or if you want to just stylistically have a couple of them sprinkled throughout or maybe some keys that you use in software’s more often like function keys or number keys you could do that you also get a fairly long USB micro cable for plugging it in and it does come with a very simple key cap puller so nice to have some of those things when even some bigger brands don’t include key cap pullers I’m looking at you razor so overall there’s really not a whole lot to say about this board it’s rugged its durable you know I feel like for it’s a great value especially for students that might you know take their laptops with them everywhere they go on campus and when it comes time to sit down and type out a paper if you’re anything like me you just don’t like using laptop style chiclet keyboards absolutely just I don’t like it can’t do it but having something like this like I keep this keyboard now in my work backpack just pop it out and if I need to jot down some quick emails or type something up just pull it out and you’re ready to go you know there’s a lot of applications for it again with a clean desk setup if you want to keep things minimalistic or if you’re just somebody that works from home or pretty much can work remotely anywhere and all you need is a backpack with your laptop in it you can throw this in there easily and I feel like it’s durable enough I mean the thing is built like a brick that it’s definitely gonna hold up obviously you want to do your best to kind of minimize the trauma that happens to the key caps and the switches but I’ve been throwing this thing in my work bag for the last couple of weeks and haven’t had any issues with it whatsoever anyways I feel like this little vilasa fire mini is a really good substitute for something like the an Pro which is gonna cost you about a so if you’re not sure if you like a 60% mechanical keyboard it’s definitely a safe way to go to kind of get you that entry into the smaller kind of niche mechanical keyboard market and then see if you like it and move on from there.
