The Aorus Thunder K7 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is currently available from Overclockers UK for a very reasonable £129.95. Now, that is a lot of money, but when you factor in the build quality, and the modular design that this keyboard offers, you’re getting great value overall and it’s a rock-solid contender for the numerous other £100+ enthusiast keyboards on the market today.
This is truly a fantastic keyboard to use, both for daily work tasks and for competitive gaming. It ticks all the right boxes that a pro-gamer would be looking for, with lightening fast Cherry MX switches, good quality key caps, clear LED lighting, a powerful macro engine, anti-ghosting and more. Of course, the real star of the show is the modular design and while it’s not the first keyboard in the world to do so, it’s easily the best integration of such a feature we’ve ever seen, mostly due to the instant locking magnetic mounts that allow you to chop and change the layout so quickly, you could very easily do it right in the middle of a game!
I use a TKL keyboard for my day-to-day work, as I like the desktop space it gives me to play around with. However, there are times when I could really do with a number pad, so having a keyboard that can be my TKL product of desire 6 days of the week, and then become a full-size keyboard within seconds is a huge bonus for me and my work. The same goes for those who like to travel with their keyboard, as you can have the full size one at home, but just take the main keyboard section with you to gaming events, as it’s much more compact and easier to transport.
The overall build quality is rock solid, with a durable housing, firm rubber grips on the base to keep everything in place on my desktop and easily the widest and most durable kickstands you’ll find on any keyboard. The addition of good quality cables, Cherry switches, and those UV-coated key caps only adds to the overall assurance of quality on offer.
Many keyboards have an air of “well, it’s not for everyone” about them, but this one really does fit the bill for virtually everyone. It configures to the form factor you need, the button configuration you need and it does so for a competitive price, easily one of the most fun keyboards we’ve seen this year.
