About this deal

There’s still a slight latency, but it is acceptable enough for casual typing, even at my usual 90+WPM. While the PBT keycaps on the NJ80 are great, it doesn’t allow for any RGB shine-through if that’s your jam. On the bottom of the case you’ll find the plastic fold-out feet—just one stage—and a dedicated on-off switch which, while certainly appreciated, would have been better placed on the side.

Each notch is 2% of volume in Windows, although I did notice that if you spin the knob too quickly it will skip some notches. The steel plate however does reflect the RGB well, resulting in an even glow throughout the keyboard. There’s also Fn+L to open the web browser, Fn+C to open This PC, and Fn+P gives you the Printscreen functionality.

If you don’t tend to play in a dark room this might not be an issue for you, but for me, it was overall too bright so I just turned the backlighting off altogether. He's been reviewing gaming peripherals for almost a decade and has reviewed hundreds of mice, keyboards, controllers and other gaming peripherals.

The NJ80-AP is a bit on the higher side for cost, but if you are looking for a fully customizable keyboard, you won’t have to constantly charge; this is the board you’ve been looking for.While it is my first keyboard, I am super happy with how that Flamingo switches sound and the quality of the keycaps. There are a lot of little things that bring down the NJ80-AP’s experience: a somewhat retro look, a plastic case, and software that’s just plain bad. Right away those two things intrigued me and I was excited to hop into seeing how the NJ80-AP would stack up against the others. Even much pricier boards than the Keydous NJ80 often have much noisier Space bars, which makes this a great board for the average keyboard warrior to get.

It also means that the board is a decent (if not ideal) option for PC gaming, something that Bluetooth-only boards can’t boast. If you really fancy your RGB, you might want to go with the steel plate option, which is painted in white. There’s also no indication in the user manual about the difference between these options or that there is even a secondary way to turn off the backlighting.The original charging cable must be used to connect the USB port of the computer for charging, and the charging current should be less than 1A. The NJ80-AP by Keydous adds to their lineup with a 75% hot-swappable, wireless keyboard that feels great to type on with fantastic build quality—all while coming in at around ~130 USD. Apart from using the software, there’s a whole host of functions you can use to change into different lighting modes on the NJ80. Speaking of which, the bronze coloration of the brass plate also doesn’t really bode well for sharp, punchy lighting. It does affect the purity of the RGB lighting, which is a slight bummer, but you can easily adjust to it.
