Package Content & Design
Everything comes well-protected. Once taken out the keyboard, you can find 2 Outemu modular blue mechanical switches, USB-C to USB-A cable, key cap puller, switch puller and user manual. Be sure to take your time to go through the guide.

Build quality is excellent for the price. Solid plastic housing is what you get. Compact in size and light in weight. Ease to carry around with you no doubt. By the way, there are 2 colours to choose – black and white.

At the bottom, there are 4 anti-skid pads to provide stability. It is stable without extending the legs. However, grip is not so much when extended. Do take note…

Have a closer look at the USB-C port and capslock light indicator.

You can start using MKA-61C without any software. Most of the stuff can be configured on the keyboard directly. Or install the software to unleash all of its interesting and useful features. You can assign key, macro and shortcut there. Up to 3 profiles to select.

Performance Result
Outemu blue mechanical switches are no stranger to me. In short, it is a great budget switch. Slightly better than OTUM and Content switches. But shy to Cherry MX and Kailh blue switches. It performs in the middle of them. And it is the louder when compare to Cherry MX and Kailh blue switches. Has the lowest actuation force too. Tactile feedback is good but the other two are better. For starter, you can’t go wrong with Outemu blue switches thanks to its value price.
