Glorious PC Gaming Race – GMMK v2 (100%) Review

2 Months Later…I’ve had the chance to really get to know this keyboard. I’ve typed and gamed on it a bunch… So here are my honest impressions:

Pros: RGB lights, True N-Key Rollover, 1000 hz polling, gold-plated and braided USB Cable, keycap and switch pullers included, software available but not necessary, aluminum switch mounting plate, rubber feet, and rubber-tipped risers, and finally, Hot-swap switches.

Cons: Software is still rough, plastic body, SMD LEDs aren’t super bright, USB Cable is non-removable. White LED mode has a pinkish tint. Customization sans software isn’t as robust (obviously).

Final Thoughts: I do think this is a fine keyboard with a lot going for it, especially at the price. I found after some use that I was NOT a fan of the Gateron Browns, much preferring the heavier feel of Outemu Purples, or the faster response of Kailh Coppers. But thanks to the hot-swap switch design, I was not forced to deal with the Gaterons.

Don’t get me wrong, Gateron switches are fine, and typing feel is very subjective. I don’t want to tell anyone else what they prefer in a mechanical keyboard, but having the option to customize even that aspect of your keyboard is a fine selling point.

I will also note here that Input.Club in an Interview with Tom’s Hardware, spoke about the benefits to the manufacturing process and even the benefits to the PCB of using the hot-swap switch design.

This keyboard is recommended to anyone looking for a customizable, full-size, gaming, mechanical keyboard. I personally love the hot-swap switches enough to use this over a Razer Keyboard, and I have a Razer Mouse with Chroma(TM).

But as always, the choice is of course yours. To learn more, check out Glorious PC Gaming Race and their Glorious Modular Mechanical Keyboard (GMMK) Page.
