Package Content & Design
There is Armaggeddon Swiftspectra AK-333s Keyboard in the package. That’s all. No user manual and driver CD here. Every info that you need is located at the packaging box. The build quality is excellent. Solid plastic housing and nice UV coated low profile keypads. Basically, it is a full-size layout keyboard with number pad. No additional shortcut buttons nor Fn ones. Except the one that toggle backlight on/off – scroll key. When scroll lock mode is on, the lights are off. And the other way around. At bottom, you can find 2 anti-skid pads at the lower part of the keyboard. But no keyboard legs for height adjustment.

Performance Result
Yeah… I love its colourful multicolour backlights. Yes, it looks just like a RGB mechanical gaming keyboard. However, it does not have individual LED light therefore, the lights do not have any animation or effect. Just on and off here (no brightness control too). And colours stay at the same place – green on the left part, blue in the middle and red on the right side. But it does give you the feel of a RGB keyboard at first glance. Yes, it definitely look great at dark environment with all its illuminated character keys and backlit keycap sides.

Low profile chiclet keys

No software or driver is needed to use Swiftspectra AK-333s. It’s plug and play. As for typing, the key strokes are quiet. Not totally dead silent of course but quieter than most of my other membrane keyboards. The tactile feedback is good as well. And no issue to type fast with its low profile keycaps here. Chiclet keyboard lovers will going to like it too.

By the way, Swiftspectra AK-333s does not have anti-ghosting gaming clusters. Example, you can’t press Q, Z or X while holing A and S keys. Q, Z and X key won’t be registered. Do take note on that as it is not advertised to do so too. But it is still part of ‘The Ultimate Gaming Keyboard’ by Armaggeddon?
