Due to long-time typing at work and intense gaming at leisure, my requirement for the keyboard is that it must be multi-mode and durable with n-key rollover. There are many keyboards on the market that meet my needs. How can I choose the most cost-effective one? DAREU recently gave the answer. Its latest wireless three-mode connection mechanic gaming keyboard A87 PRO not only has a fresh and beautiful appearance, but also is equipped with a gasket structure and its Violet Gold PRO switches, which is very eye-catching and makes me excited.
The DAREU wireless three-mode mechanical gaming keyboard A87 PRO has four versions: dim gray, light sky blue, gray and white smoke. Each version has two types of switches, V3 Sky Switches and Violet Gold PRO Switches. I bought the light sky blue version with Violet Gold PRO switches. It comes packaged in a colorful cardboard box with a blue sky, rainbow and cloud pattern on the front with white lettering and a keyboard sketch on the back. The design is minimalistic and better accentuates the sky theme.
When you open the package, you will find that in addition to the keyboard, there are accessories such as a transparent dust cover, a dual-purpose key puller and a type-C data cable. Although the accessories are simple, the artistry is very delicate.
The DAREU A87 PRO adopts an 87-key design, and the key surfaces are arranged in a neat and orderly manner, making the volume small. 363*135*37mm dimensions, can give the mouse more operating space and freedom. The light sky blue version does not use the traditional black and white color scheme, but has a double combination of light sky blue and sky blue, and is decorated with patterns such as rainbow and blue sky. The sky theme pops up in an instant.
The bottom cover of DAREU A87 PRO is frosted, with rounded corners and a rectangular PROtrusion on the upper part. With the double-segment feet, you can raise the keyboard from a flat position to a comfortable angle, making typing easier and less tiring after long-term use. The keyboard has three cable outlets, so that the data cables can be arranged more neatly when connecting devices. There are five non-slip feet attached to the entire back panel, when the keyboard is placed on the desktop, it is stable and non-slip. The keyboard information label is embedded in the center of the back panel.
The data cable uses a type-C interface, and the wire is thicker and looks good in quality.
To provide more functions on the keyboard, DAREU A87 PRO introduces the Fn key commonly used in laptop computers, and realizes the less commonly used functions through the Fn+ combination key, which not only saves the keyboard space, but also makes the operation convenient.
The DAREU A87 PRO adopts three connection methods: Bluetooth, 2.4G wireless and USB wired connection. You can switch the connection method with one key through the switch on the left side of the keyboard.
DAREU A87 PRO uses high-purity PBT square keycaps, which are printed with sky and rainbow patterns through light sky blue and sky blue two-color injection molding. The surface of the keys has been frosted, making the hand feel delicate and not greasy. At the same time, the keycap is designed with an arc shape, which fits your fingers, allowing you to tap effortlessly and ergonomically. The overall design of the keycaps is clean and neat. When the keyboard is placed on the desktop, the keys are like pieces of elegant art, which are integrated with the surroundings.
As a mechanical keyboard, the core configuration of the DAREU A87 PRO includes switches. It uses Violet Gold PRO switches, which are brown switches with a sense of paragraph. The triggering stroke is 2.1±0.3mm, the triggering pressure is 45±8gf, and the gold-plated spring makes the triggering smooth and sensitive, and the rebound feedback is obvious. You don't feel numbness in your fingertips even when you type for a long time. The large keys in this keyboard all use specially tuned satellite switches and balance bars to ensure that the keys are stable and not shaken. At the same time, this keyboard has newly upgraded the fence gasket structure, using a 25duro fence silicone sandwich with both softness and toughness, and forming a closed loop with the PC positioning plate, so that there is no noise when you use the keyboard.
Let's take a look at the details of the DAREU A87 PRO. The bottom of the double-section feet is also equipped with non-slip silicone. The data cable plug is fixed with a wire slot to avoid connection failure caused by shaking. The corners are natural, the molding is complete and there is no excess, and the upper cover and the bottom cover cooperate well. These details can reflect DAREU's high-standard quality control.
In modern office and entertainment, notebooks, IPADs and mobile phones are often used at the same time, and multi-system compatibility is very necessary. This makes multi-device collaboration and switching a basic requirement. DAREU A87 PRO supports Android, Mac OS, iOS and Windows systems, and can switch freely between different devices through a one-button switch. The switching process is smooth, effectively improving the efficiency of office work and entertainment, and meeting the needs of multitasking.
DAREU A87 PRO supports three-mode connection, which can connect different devices through Bluetooth, 2.4G and USB cable respectively. After connecting, the stability of the keyboard is good, and there is no disconnection phenomenon.
DAREU A87 PRO has a built-in 4000mAh high-capacity lithium battery, which can be used continuously for 45 days when the light is off and 7 days when the light is on. This battery life is much higher than the average keyboard, saving you the trouble of frequent charging.
N-key rollover is a very important design for gamers. Gamers can use keyboard keys to complete various high-precision and difficult operations according to their own ideas. DAREU A87 PRO meets this need. Even if multiple keys are pressed at the same time, the keyboard can instantly respond to trigger commands, helping you become the king or queen in the game.
When working or gaming, if you turn on the keyboard light, you will instantly have a sense of atmosphere. DARE UA87 PRO supports RGB full color backlight. With the Fn+ key combination, you can switch between various lighting effects and lighting effects colors. Since there is an independent RGB backlight under each key, it brings a powerful visual impact when the light is turned on. At the same time, the light intensity can be adjusted by itself, which is mild and not dazzling, and is integrated with the sky-themed keycaps.
After experiencing it, I feel that the light sky blue version of the DAREU mechanical gaming keyboard A87 PRO has a fresh and stylish sky theme, the Violet Gold PRO switches have a good touch, and the fence-style gasket structure eliminates noise. Of course, I also hope that DAREU can add more colors and themes to choose from in the future. For now, this keyboard is unquestionably a good choice for people with typing and gaming needs.
