You don’t have to look very far these days to find a great gaming keyboard, or even just a keyboard for day-to-day work, but that doesn’t mean there’s no room for even more! Element Gaming is a relatively new playing in the gaming market, but they’re quickly making a name for themselves thanks to their cool designs, competitive prices and robust build quality. We’ve only seen two Element Gaming products here at eTeknix, the Hyperion Micro-ATX chassis and the Atomic Mini-ITX chassis, although both scored very well in their respective reviews. After two chassis reviews, I’m certainly eager to see what they have to offer to the world of gaming peripherals.
The Beryllium comes pretty well equipped, with a full-size layout, Kailh mechanical switches, a detachable wrist rest, multimedia controls, multi-pattern blue LED lighting, some custom key-caps for gaming keys and more! So let’s get stuck right in and take a much closer look at what Element Gaming and their Beryllium keyboard have to offer!
The first thing you’ll find in the box, the instruction manual, handy for checking how to control the LED lighting, but otherwise it’s just a keyboard and fairly self explanatory.
There’s a full-width detachable wrist rest.
What I really like, is that the wrist rest features a smooth, yet grippy texture coating, giving it a luxurious and premium feel.
Two rubber grips on the base help prevent it, and your keyboard, from sliding around your desk.
And it’s mounting system is nice and easy to attach and remove without much risk of damaging the keyboard.
Not content with those extras? You’ll also find a very handy key-cap removal tool, handy for maintaining your keyboard.
The tool is also handy for removing the stock key-caps and installing these fetching custom ones! The blue of the key-caps matches the trim of the keyboard, as you’ll see in a moment.
