Wooting One Basic Red Analogue Keyboard Review

Introduction

The Wooting development cycle has been a long one, as you might expect from a product which really steps away from the norm when it comes to gaming keyboards.

So often we get a new keyboard come into the OC3D offices and we almost know what we think about it before we open the box. There will be Cherry MX switches in either red or blue, some RGB lighting, either full size or TKL design, and after that maybe some bits and bobs that separate that particular model from the dozens of others on the market.

With the Wooting One things are different. By eschewing the regulation Cherry MX switches and their on/off state, Wooting have brought a fully analogue keyboard to market. Want to play a racing game but still have the gradual input precision necessary for fast laps but without buying a pad or wheel? The Wooting One has you covered. With full RGB lighting and a solid chassis beneath it looks like most other keyboards to the casual observer, but delve a little deeper and there are a lot of hidden talents.

Technical Specifications

The absolute highlight feature of the Wooting One, and the reason it's something other than a regulation mechanical keyboard, are those Flaretech Prism switches. Fully analogue switches mind. Thus you can do all sorts of cool things with them, from setting up a response curve to suit your personal taste, through to assigning different functions to each key depending upon how far down you've pressed it. You're only limited by your creativity and, to some degree, your muscle memory.

Never again. Whilst you could consider what I use minimalist, this keyboard in the review is about as large as I would go. If I wanted a keypad I could easily buy a separate one I could use and then put away (something like this).

Because basically I hardly ever used mine. And it eats up desk space.Quote
