The packaging is up to QPADs usual high standards with a clear look at the product and features available. As you can see from the sticker on the top right our review model comes equipped with the linear red switches. Our favourite mechanical switch in fact.

The MK90 comes with a wrist rest too, something that is vital if you plan to do any amount of typing at all. As someone who has wrists crippled from RSI I speak from experience. Behind the status indicators there are two USB 2.0 ports as well as the audio pass-throughs.

If you've been staring intently at our pictures and wondering what the specifications image clue was all about, then this is the solution. On the QPAD purchasing page it lists these as "MX Red" switches. On the box above they are Red switches. Removing the keycaps and we see that there is some subterfuge here. Yes they are red switches, but they aren't Cherry MX ones, but rather the Chinese copy of the Cherry switches, made by Kailh.

Lighting is well catered for with the MK90 supporting the full range of colours and plenty of modes too. You can have anything from no lighting, to multiple colours, to random colours, and indeed effects such as a "drop of water" ripple when you press a key. All very impressive.

The software is simplistic at best, looking like something you'd find in a Visual Basic application. It does the job, but it's not the swiftest nor most responsive software we've ever used.
