Fun, easy-to-use mechanical keyboard with a soft touch.

Keyboards are an essential tool that every workspace should have front and center. They should be compatible with your style of work or entertainment and comfortable for you to use. In a way, choosing a keyboard is a lot like finding the right pair of shoes. Each has its own specific utility purpose and comfort level for the user. You could spend loads of time searching for just the right pair of shoes — and the same can be said for keyboards. This past weekend I started renovating my office space. One of the biggest tasks involved was cleaning out and organizing my closet. In that closet, I found 8 different styles of keyboards. I ended up keeping only three and one of those isn’t even operational. I kept it because it has sentimental value. My point is that while there are literally hundreds of different keyboards to choose from, there is only one right choice for you. This search is what led me to try out the Vissles V84 Wireless Keyboard.

DETAILS

It is tenkeyless (TKL) and features a 75% layout. It’s compact and includes RGB backlighting. The keyboard is made with PBT and the switches are have a 60 million keystroke life span. The keyboard is designed to work with both Mac and Windows operating systems with macOS as the default layout. The RGB lighting can be customized through Vissles software, but it is for Windows users only. The keyboard communicates wirelessly through Bluetooth 5.1 and allows for five different devices to be connected at any given time. There is a rechargeable 3750 mAh lithium battery built into the keyboard and provides up to 180 hours of runtime.

The VSII switches were designed by Vissles to be functioning mechanical switches that are softer in feel than other styles of switches. The description from Vissles is included below.
