T9 Plus Software

aLLreLi T9 Plus 29 keys are engineered specifically for League of Legends left-hand use. It might not suit all games so its software comes to rescue. Yes, you can also customize all the RGB backlight effects through the software. And assign single key, shortcuts and macros that can’t be done with physical keyboard itself. Yup, all 29 keys are programmable. For example, there is no C key there but you need it. You can change G key into C key through the single key replacement. Very useful when you can’t change it inside the game. Besides single key, you can also assign them as multimedia shortcuts like play/pause, volume up/down, functions like copy, cut, paste and finally macros. Just bring up the macro editor to assign the key combo that you prefer will do.

Performance Result
I can play aLLreLi T9 Plus RGB backlight effects all day long. Yup, it is not only stylish but attractive as well. Besides static colour, you can set them as animation effects like floating, chameleon, gradient, phantom and single press illuminations. Nice to see and fun to play. For example, I assigned every single key to have own unique colour in below photo. Choose from white, red, green, yellow, blue, pink and cyan to match your taste. And these illuminated character keys work great at any light condition.

Hey, we are talking about mechanical keyboard here. Yes, it is better than conventional membrane keyboard in gaming department. Why? It supports anti-ghosting technology with n-key rollover. Yup, each key is scanned completely independently by the keyboard hardware. Windows will able to detect regardless of how many other keys are being pressed or held down at the time. A must have feature for hardcore gamer, right? Of course, that’s not the only benefit of mechanical keyboard. They last longer thanks to the individual switches. As you can see, Kailh switches are being used here. The tactile feedback is great. Its ergonomic and high profile keycaps give you the best user experience here. You can use it at home desktop or pair it with laptop (which it was designed for). It provides better ergonomic compare to laptop keyboard no doubt. And you are closer to the screen compare to full size keyboard that put in front of laptop when T9 Plus put on the left.

Things to take note… Mechanical keyboard provides better feedback and easier to press. But they are louder than membrane keyboard. aLLreLi T9 Plus’ small anti-skid pads do not provide much stability here. Bigger and thicker ones should help…

    I’ve one of these, arrived today. The driver disk wouldn’t work but it’s always best to download direct from the site for the latest drives anyhow. The included information booklets pictures were so blacked out, that they are second only to redundant.
    Impressive packaging, build, lighting, cable, tactile response/sound & ergonomic design.
    It’s a shame there’s no downloadable macros/set-ups from the Allreli site for games & personally I believe all companies selling such products should link & publish tutorials on their site & YouTube.
    The price is fantastic & for anyone getting into Single-Handed Keyboards; look no further & purchase.
