  • Armaggeddon for this Armaggeddon MKA-7C PsychEagle 2021 Edition Mechanical Keyboard

Package Content & Design
Armaggeddon MKA-7C comes well protected. Once taken out the keyboard, there are 3 Outemu modular blue mechanical switches, key cap puller, switch puller and user manual. As usual, take your time to go through the guide.

Build quality is excellent for the price. Solid plastic housing is what you get. Compact for a full size keyboard. Light in weight too. Ease to carry around with you indeed. By the way, there are 2 colours to choose – black and white. By the way, this is the UK layout instead of the usual US layout.

At the bottom, there are 2 anti-skid pads to provide stability. No pads on the legs. Grip is still decent even with 2 rubber pads only.

Performance Result
Outemu blue mechanical switches are no stranger to me. In short, it is a great budget switch. This is the latest improved design which slightly different from the old one. Better than OTUM and Content switches. But shy to Cherry MX and Kailh blue switches. It performs in the middle of them. It is loud! Almost like a typewriter. Much louder than MKA-61C which use the same switch. Do take note…

25 keys anti-ghosting gaming cluster support. No NKRO that I hope for. But it is still performing for gaming. The must-have Windows key lock is there to avoid accidental interruption during extreme gaming. In addition, there is a lot of Fn shortcut keys for you to play with.

Lovely RGB colour and lighting effects. Budget white colour keyboard always performs better than black one in the lighting department. Yes, the white panel does a better job on reflexing the light indeed. MKA-7C packs with 12 preset RGB light effects. Up to 3 brightness levels to select. And can turn it off too. By the way, the LED colours are fixed. Do take note…
