"Great deal for a great Keyboard"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This keyboard is seriously top notch. The quality of the keys are legit; there are 2 USB passthroughs; there is an insane amount of RGB customisation just from the keyboard itself (no extra software); and the keys are switchable too. If you're looking for a good quality yet still cheap mechanical keyboard you won't go wrong with Mightyape's Gorilla Gaming Keyboard! I'm seriously impressed with the quality of this thing and can't recommend it more. Remember though, this is a blue switch keyboard so it is loud as hell. If you need to be mindful of your noise DO NOT get these. Otherwise go right ahead!

I never leave reviews for anything but I must say, i'm very impressed with this piece of equipment. The customization is unreal and the RGB on it is amazing. Best keyboard I have ever done. Shout out to the boys at mighty ape keep this sh*t coming.

"A brillant keyboard!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I just got this keyboard and I agree with all the other reviews. It's super loud but that's a plus for me, and the lighting totally makes me 512% better at gaming. It feels amazing to type on too, and has lots of custom keys. The packaging itself is also very high quality. The package was left out in the rain (not by fault of the courier) but there were like 3 boxes and a few layers of plastic, which saved it from the sky. Also ships with a bubblewrap-like thing which is fun to pop.

"Great Entry level mechanical"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I don't normally do reviews but I got to say this keyboard is a great starting point for someone getting into gaming. It's affordable and the palm rest is actually comfortable compared to other entry level gaming keyboards. Simple to use, plug and play. The rgb's are nice and not overbearing. The keys are very clicky clicky. It's had a workout this weekend and I don't regret picking this over the others I looked at. Great buy .

"ARE YOU KIDDING ME!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

So after many products in the past directly from retailers own production line I have never been so impressed, this keyboard is heavy and is not made with cheap plastics, chroma is amazing and the keys make an awesome sound, for $99 this is worth 100 times over. Will update in 2 months.

"Seems to work fine now."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I've had this keyboard slightly over a month now and one of the keys locks itself into the pressed position until the keycap is removed and the switch is messed with directly. I expected better than this for the price.

Edit: After this review I was shipped a new one and so far it's been working fine. Hopefully it continues to.

"Great for the money. Great build, clicky and loud"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Very good value for the money. Great build quality and customizable LEDs. No special drivers required for Windows, works the moment it's connected. Keys are satisfyingly clicky and while the keys are plastic, the plate they sit on is metal so it feels quite solid and satisfying to type. If you type hard, sometimes you may hear the keys hit the metal and create a bit of a ringing sound, which might be annoying to some. Also the clicky sounds from typing is far from subtle, so this is a surefire way to piss off your coworkers.

"Best kept secret"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Seriously buy this keyboard, its just amazing for $99. Feels great, looks good, super stable and has all the awesome features you expect from a keyboard 2–3× the price. Only downsides are the slightly lower quality key caps (easy to change if you want to), lack of other switch options and slightly dimmer RGB which actually suits me fine. So as long as your neighbours can put up with blue switches you are onto a winner. Buying a second one now for work!

"Can not fault it"
5 stars"

This keyboard justified it's own review, I was lucky enough to win this through one of mightyape games facebook promos, I have been using it for almost a week as my daily driver KB at work, have swapped it with my old razer stealth to give it a whirl. I haven't had any complaints from my colleagues yet but the only thing you could fault it on, is it is a clicky keyboard, so those who enjoy quiet might want earmuff, and the wrist rest isn't detachable, but I don't mind as I was wanting a rest (so if you have compact deskroom maybe this isn't the one for you). But the software, onboard controls, feel, build quality. Is all exceptional. If I had of purchased this I would be extremely happy with it as it punches well above it's price tag. I have even recommended it to a couple friends already. I don't know what else to say, I have been using my mouse through the Keyboard to try out the pass-through ports, no issues. Keyboard spacing is nice, haven't had any abnormal mistypes. The Mechanical switch has side supports which significantly reduce wobble compared to the normal + shaped ones. All in all, only have good things to say. NB: This review was typed on this keyboard

"Beautiful Keyboard"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Very happy with this keyboard, So many different LED colour options with ability to light up certain keys that you only want shining, Wristpad could do with being a bit longer and higher to actually support wrist but overall an excellent keyboard, keys are very noisy like a typewriter, louder than my last mechanical keyboard however this is how I like it.

"Cool and fun"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Super fun to type with and incredibly accurate compared to my last non mechanical keyboard. Messing with the lighting options is also fun. The USB pass through is also very useful. Seems like an incredible buy for the price

"Great keyboard"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The switches are great and stable the metal frame is aswome to have and it adds to the sturdiness the one slight probably I have is the rgb there isn't a program for it and its not as bright as something like a razor or Logitech keyboard but that's fine because the price was great

"Great keyboard, but oh my god is it loud!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This keyboard feels quality and sturdy and the palm/wrist rest feels nice, I would say to be careful because the custom gorilla gaming switches are very. Very loud. Other than that would recommend, the click is very satisfying as I type this :)

"Works great - excellent value"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Have had this a week – comfortable to use, keys lit for use in the dark – great value at the low price point

"Underdog"
5 stars"

Wouldn't normally write reviews but felt I needed to for this one. Outrageously good value, compared to other options which can be $2–3 hundred, for $99 this provides everything you could ask for. Has a super sturdy feel to it and the keys are awesome. Would recommend to anyone!

"Few things to note:"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The images on the website show a euro layout when the keyboard is US layout. I suspect it's design mockups being used in actual marketing, because the packaging itself has the correct keyboard on display. Also, switches are GX Blues, not MX blues, according to the box.

"The reviews were super helpful"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Bought this after reading the enticing reviews, I'm now typing on my new keyboard and totally second what others are saying in terms of value and quality. After using membrane keyboards most of my life, now with covid I live alone so the noise is no issue. It is really loud but the tactile and noise feedback makes typing fun. I've never used a type writer but this must be what they feel like! I can see why so many people are die hard converts now :)
