XPG Summoner Mechanical RGB Gaming Keyboard Review - Something new after a long time.

Updated: Mar 27, 2020

Well, its 2020 and if you're looking for a mechanical gaming keyboard then you'll be confused about which one to go for as the market is flooded with RGB Keyboards now.

When it comes to keyboards the first things that I look for are
  • Type of switches

  • Build Quality

  • RGB Illumination

  • Features

  • Customizability

And there are only a handful of em who got it all right - One of them is the XPG Summoner. The Summoner comes with 3 types of key switches

  • Cherry MX Red

  • Cherry MX Blue

  • Cherry MX Speed Silver

Which covers the majority of gamers out there as these are the most used & preferred key switches. The one we got had Cherry MX Speed Silver switches.

As far as build quality goes the Summoner gets an 8/10 rating for using Aluminium Frame & high-quality plastic making it one of the premium ones out there.

The Sandblasted top plate really makes a difference as it gives it a much premium look and feel plus allows the RGB light to spread evenly.

If we take a look at the features keyboard offers it'll be

● CHERRY MX RGB Key Switches

● 7 Pre-Defined RGB Modes

● Magnetic Ergonomic Wrist Rest

● Media Control Key

● Macro Keys

● 100% Anti-Ghosting Keys

● Sandblasted Aluminum Frame Design

● USB Passthrough

● 9 Replaceable Red Keycaps

What do you get inside the box?

The keyboard comes well packed in a box & inside its well protected with two thick foam blocks to absorb any shock while in transit & cardboard sections along with a plastic covering the keyboard.

The keyboard comes with a thick braided cable which kinds looks off,
