There are few things we handle that are more personal to us than our keyboards. Mice are very much an extension of our arm, but the very nature of them needing to fit into a human sized hand limits the design. One would imagine that keyboards are close enough in specification that there is nothing really to choose between them, but if you've ever had to go round a friends to fix their PC, or borrow someone's laptop to quickly look something up, you quickly realise that your own keyboard is an extension of your thoughts from which words easily fly and with a different one you're back to two finger pecking and hitting the wrong key all the time.
It isn't just the physical size and spacing of a keyboard that can make a difference either, but key type has a huge effect upon the speed and accuracy of your typing and in-game movements. For every person who likes a laptop scissor style keyboard there is one who likes the quiet linearity of a red switch, or one who likes the tactile bump and click you get from a blue switch. There are even those who prefer a certain switch type for a certain application, gaming with one and typing with another.
If you find yourself nodding at this point then the QPAD MK-95 might be the very keyboard for you, capable of being a blue switch keyboard and, with a sub-one-second change, becoming a red switch model. With full N key rollover, customisable RGB lighting and a fully-featured macro suite the MK-95 has a lot to offer, so let's take a closer look.
