More and more technology is leaning toward wireless devices, and for good reason – it makes life so much easier. Klim reached out to have their wireless gaming keyboard reviewed and I was happy to test it out. Overall, I was happy with this keyboard and my personal favorite part about this keyboard is that it’s quieter so I don’t get that typical keyboard clicking that most gamers get. Let’s dive into the specifics so you can decide if this is a good option for you.
Right out of the box and first use of the Klim keyboard
When I first opened the box, I made sure to charge the Klim keyboard fully so I could be sure it was working well. This keyboard is compatible with multiple types of computers, and I tested it with both my gaming PC and my Mac. Instead of using Bluetooth, this keyboard instead uses a USB receiver to transmit signal back and forth. My assumption ids that this makes the communication much quicker so you don’t lose a second of response time. I noticed it didn’t have any delay between hitting the keys and it signaling on the computer, no matter what game I played.
If I don’t type for about 30 seconds, the lights on the keyboard dim which is something I found helpful if I had it near me while I was watching Netflix. Having the lights go out I’m sure saves on overall battery use, but it was nice to have that as a bonus feature. You can adjust the brightness through the FN key, depending on what you need.
Thoughts on overall use of the Klim keyboard
As mentioned in the intro, one of my favorite features about the Klim keyboard is how quiet it is. I wish the entire keyboard was quiet, but for some reason the spacebar makes the loud clicking sound like traditional gaming keyboards do. Not really a big deal, but figure it was worth mentioning if someone is looking for a completely silent keyboard.
There is a function button on it which allows it to be used across multiple types of computer so you can still access things like sound control from your keyboard. On my Mac, I did notice that the screen brightening/dimming commands didn’t work, but thankfully at least the sound adjustment buttons did.
Other features and uses
The keys have a 10,000,000 keystroke lifetime, which obviously I haven’t tested, but it’s holding up well. However, so far I’ve noticed it’s sturdy and is holding up through all kinds of games and articles I write. At only 480 g, it’s a light keyboard. That’s a nice feature if you need to bring it while you travel or hold it in your lap.
The battery life in total is about four hours, which is not enough time for it to become my main keyboard since I type for 8-10 hours every given day. However, it’s a good option for short gaming sessions.
