CHERRY KA026 keycaps review

By  Bradan Pepper 2020-03-11 2243 9

To say that playing hardware is indeed a money-consuming activity, from entry to high-end, playing with plastic and metal, black black and green tea has been touched and found that this is not the most expensive, isn't the keycap beautiful?! Do you want all kinds of rainbow colors? Do you want to change all kinds of keycaps? The keycap pit is the beginning of opening the devil's door.

Exquisite in the name of CHERRY.

CHERRY KA026 German factory production, packaging box to maintain a consistent sense of high-end design, highlight text and LOGO have a good texture, but also vaguely embellished with RGB color in it.

Foam is used in the package to carefully protect the key cap and key extractor. Keycaps use a variety of bright silver, if the appearance is already a beautiful work of art, CHERRY since the launch of CHERRY MX BOARD 8.0, this retro keyboard has been loved by the majority of gamers because of its outstanding features.

This time we got the metal keycaps of CHERRY KA026, which are made of aluminum alloy CNC, and eight keycaps are placed on the metal base.

CHERRY KA026's eight metal key caps are common game keys WASD and up and down direction keys, the height is the height of the original factory height, made by aluminum alloy through CNC process and anodizing process, the surface is the abrasive texture of anodic alumina, anti-oxidation and corrosion, and has its own wear-resistant properties, the touch is delicate and non-skidding.

It took a lot of work to unplug the button from the base, and there were no official instructions. The keys and the base are processed by the same aluminum alloy CNC, and the connection between the base and the keys is very thin and has not been cut off. If you want to remove the key cap, you should use a pry.

Not limited to faith bonus, CHERRY KA026 metal keycap also uses high-end laser micro-perforation technology, each hole diameter is only 0.03mm, the center distance from 0.1mm. Our own hair is several times the diameter of the hole, and so far only CHERRY has used this technology, the first in the industry to use laser micro-piercing to make time metal keycaps transparent.

There are 371 micro-perforations in the upper and lower left and right keys of CHERRY KA026, while the perforations of the four keys of WASD are 446,343,372,330, respectively. Due to the meticulous and accurate perforation, the characters on the keycap are clear and regular, and the light transmittance is also very good, which can be compared with the shoulder-to-shoulder two-color injection keycap.

The slot of the cross opening in the CHERRY KA026 key cap matches the shaft body, the interior is smooth, and the shaft core is not hurt as much as possible, which is consistent with the general key cap, and the slot can also be loosened and adjusted by tools.

CHERRY KA026 will be installed on the keyboard, there is also a good appearance bonus, in fact, the metal shiny silver can indeed be versatile, no matter what kind of keyboard can better match the color.

Summary

Overall experience, CHERRY KA026 metal keys do not feel cold, which may be related to the recent temperature rise in Guangzhou, may be related to the processing technology of the key cap, the keys feel warm and moist, the keys also have a very close to the Radian of the fingers. In visual processing, the bright silver color of the keys improves the appearance of the keyboard, and the uniform light transmission performance of the key cap is not inferior to that of the two-color injection molding key cap. Now this set of buttons is on sale in Tmall. The price of just over 200 yuan is only 30 yuan per set, even if the metal key caps with various labels such as "WE" are more than 40. Not to mention 100 upward metal keycaps like Thor Hammer. This set of keycaps, with a CHERRY faith bonus and very fine workmanship, is a New year's gift from CHERRY.
