What is a mechanical keyboard? Compared to the conventional membrane keyboards which actuates when the keys are fully pressed to the bottom (to close a circuit on the membrane board), mechanical keyboards have a much shorter actuation distance, and each key on the mechanical keyboard has its own independent switch.
In simpler terms, the force and pressing distance needed to register a key on a mechanical keyboard is much smaller – giving the user a super smooth, super fast typing experience.
Cherry MX Red switches
The KR6251 is built with Cherry MX Red key switches – a linear, non-tactile/clicky, super light switch. With a peak actuation force of only 45g, it’s the lightest mechanical switch available on the market. This makes the KR6251 one of the fastest keyboards for typing and gaming (based on the lightest touch).
Extra USB slots
Need more USB slots? 3x USB 2.0 slots are also built-in to the KR6251.
Anti-ghosting is a mechanism which allows multiple keys to be registered simultaneously at keystroke. The KR6251 allows up to 6-key anti-ghosting, which is particularly important especially for FPS games which multiple keystrokes are constantly necessary.
Metal inner chasis
The KR6251’s inner chasis is made of metal for extra durability and a solid, heavy feel to the keyboard. Along with the mechanical key switches which is also made for millions and millions of strokes, the KR6251 might just last you for your lifetime.
